Frighteningly Uncommon Sense /Faith& hubby Leo
Hip Suburban White Guy/XO
Law School Bound - KC Sponge
Ramblings, Rants, and Mommyhood Journal/Janet
Well Hell Michelle
Everybody is in my sidebar. Go & read their shit.
Some of the highlights were bloggers singing. You haven't seen anything till you see KC Sponge & Dan doing Paradise by the dashboard lights. Dan, Average Jane, Faith & Sponge were the only brave ones. They were belting them out. I laughed, I screamed, I cheered, and I burned my thumbs on the lighter. Oh and I had 2 martinis. You should have been there.

A co-worker got a pen stuck inside our printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don't have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk. So he grabbed a piece of paper and scribbled on it. I left before he finished the note.
*About 20 minutes later, one of my techs comes in laughing and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate.
*Attached is what he found. Sometimes things don't always come out the way you want them to...
Now that you've smiled at least once, get back to work!

I got there Friday around 5pm & left Sunday at 3:30pm. I stayed up till 2am Friday & Saturday nights & slept till 9am. I'm still coughing but feeling much better. I think the extra sleep & limited physical activities helped. Sorry XO no pillow fights. I only had one meal that I planned & executed which was Saturday lunch, baked potato & salad bar. One of the gal had also made matzo ball soup. There was lots of snack, chocolates, artichoke dip & chips. We ate well. And when the snow storm started we were not worried about running out of food. I think there even was alcohol to be taken home. I did have something called Black Sambuca with hot cocoa & marshmallows. There was beer but I wasn't in the mood. Can you believe that? I stayed in my sheepy flannel PJs from Friday night till Sunday morning. I did call & check up on Kanga twice a day to make sure he was recuperating & taking the Dayquil & Nyquil as I prescribed. I did spin some beautiful Alpaca, and did a bit of knitting on some socks. When I needed a break from all the magpies I went & laid down in the living room in front of the fireplace with a good book. Great weekend!

This is a book I keep in my desk at work in case I need some reading material. I couldn't leave the poem off. Consider yourself tagged.
Fragrant Palm Leaves, Journals 1962-1966 by Thich Nhat Hanh.
If you are distant and remote, I will be distant and remote. Look into my eyes and you will know if your universe is bright or dark, infinite or finite, mortal or immortal. The poet Tru Vu wrote:
Because eyes see the blue sky,
eyes glisten sky-blue.
Because eyes see the vast ocean,
eyes extend as far as the sea.

The KCMO mayor & wife showed up. I didn't get to talk to them. I guess I could have but I didn't want to get up & lose my spot on the love seat. Hey, Tony, she had her shoes on the whole time. Cute shoes too.
The biggest surprise of the evening was when someone came over & introduced herself as a lurker. She reads my blog! She also reads, XO, Faith, Erin. I'm sure there were others but those are the only ones that I remember since we talked about them specifically. She thought Erin was cute. Which I agreed that she is. She also said she LOVES XO. What can I say? Who doesn't love him? Well, maybe one of his exwifes... Then I told her that Faith's dad was getting the lung transplant. My God you would have thought that it was good news from a family member. She was so excited. I think we all are really. She met Kanga & commented on his ability to swing a hammer. I tried to talk her into posting a comment now & then on our blogs. Hey, Mrs. B. let us know you're out there.
