After sort-of-accidentally missing church this morning (yep… on Reformation Sunday — I suck as a Lutheran) and lunch with some parishioners, I settled in and turned on some Law & Order while plotting how to massacre some pumpkins.Â I had two of them from Albertsons that were 20 lbs masomenos and incredibly thick.Â I found that the most efficient way to do things was to scrape the edge with a large spoon (something I wish I’d known last year) and I managed to make quite an excellent cat-o-lantern and a pumpkin of crosses.Â (Jesus *IS* the Light of the World and all and I was kind of low on creative energy.)
The cats were going crazy over the pumpkin guts and I think Freya would still like to bathe my arm and get the smell off.Â Hopefully it won’t be a problem at Carols Round The Table practice…
[+] I’ve polled several of you but I’ll ask it again: should I don kitty ears and a tail for work on Wednesday?Â Leave answers in the comments.
[+]Â Who remembers reading “Caddie Woodlawn” as a child?Â I had a weird dream about the book last night.
[+] I actually saw sheep for the first time in Montana a month ago.Â They graze on some land near the interstate I commute on for work.
[+] Mom sent me some Cheryl & Co stuff.Â It’s good but the caramel brownies are a bit too much.
[+] Reformation Sunday is tomorrow.Â Go Lutherans!
To the Republicans who didn’t vote for the S-CHIP bill and thus made it impossible to override the veto:
BOO YOU WHORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At least my rep had a spine this time.
To the morons in the pick-ups and Suburbans that I commute with every morning:
Passing me is not going to make you get through Customs faster.Â Flipping me off is not going to make the line any shorter.Â Oh, and I don’t give a rat’s butt about you being in the Customs line ahead of me because… I DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH CUSTOMS, YOU MORON!!!!!!
So please just stay behind me and let me get to work.Â And if you do pass me and get in front of me, try to go AT LEAST the speed limit (75).Â If I get to work late, I’m calling over to Customs and having your butt stopped at the border.
(Not that I can make them stop you going through Customs but I’ll toss some energy and karma in that general direction.)
So Al Gore got the Nobel Peace prize.Â This is so sweet on many levels.Â I mean… he deserved it and all (and he’s donating ALL the proceeds to benefit climate change)Â and… it’s going to drive the right-wing pundits berzerk.
I couldn’t be happier.
To the crud in my face/throat/lungs,
GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!Â I’ve been miserably sick (but not sick enough to ditch work) for three days now and I’d like to actually be able to breathe, talk, and taste food again.
OK… another week with no updates.Â Blame lack of time due to work.Â
My parents are in town until tomorrow.Â This has meant good food, fun times, and being spoiled.Â I took today off and got some crocheting done.Â The last crocheting I did fetched $65 at the church auction/dinner on Sunday.Â Go me!
And for Grey’s fans, what happened after the cut into the scene with Lexi crying last Thursday?Â My idiot DVR cut off at that point.Â I also want to slap Meredith for saying those things to her.
