Thursday Yeah! - 02/20/13 11:16 PM

Imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality.
Jules de Gaultier

Not A Hallmark
These are greeting cards you'll most likely never see on a Hallmark...

"Looking back over the years that we've been together, I can't help but wonder:...
What was I thinking?"

"Congratulations on your wedding day!....
Too bad no one likes your wife."

"How could two people as beautiful as you....
have such an ugly baby?"

"I've always wanted to have someone to hold, someone to love....
After having met you, I've changed my mind."

"I must admit, you brought Religion in my life....
I never believed in Hell until I met you."

"As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am....
that you're not here to ruin it for me."

"As you grow older, Mum, I think of all the gifts you've given me.
Like the need for therapy..."

"Thanks for being a part of my life!!!....
I never knew what evil was before this!"

"Before you go,....
I would like you to take this knife out of my back. You'll probably need it again."

"Someday I hope to get married....
but not to you."

"You look great for your age....
Almost Lifelike!"

"When we were together, you always said you'd die for me....
Now that we've broken up, I think it's time you kept your promise."

"I knew the day would come when you would leave me for my best friend....
So here's his leash, water bowl and chew toys."

"We have been friends for a very long time....
What do you say we call it quits?"

"I'm so miserable without you....
It's almost like you're here."

"Congratulations on your new bundle of joy....
Did you ever find out who the father was?"

"You are such a good friend that if we were on a sinking ship and there was only one life jacket....
I'd miss you heaps and think of you often."

"Your friends and I wanted to do something special for your birthday....
So we're having you put to sleep."

"Your kisses are sweet, your hugs are passionate....
But compared to your sister, they're only second rate."

Landlord Letters
1. The toilet is blocked and we cannot bathe the children until it is cleared.

2. I want some repairs done to my stove as it has backfired and burnt my knob off.

3. This is to let you know that there is a smell coming from the man next door.

4. The toilet seat is cracked: where do I stand?

5. I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is running away from the wall.

6. I request your permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.

7. Our lavatory seat is broken in half and is now in three pieces.

8. The person next door has a large erection in his back garden, which is unsightly and dangerous.

9. Will you please send someone to mend our cracked sidewalk. Yesterday my wife tripped on it and is now pregnant.

10. Our kitchen floor is very damp, we have two children and would like a third, so will you please send someone to do something about it.

11. Will you please send a man to look at my water, it is a funny color and not fit to drink.

12. Would you please send a man to repair my downspout. I am an old age pensioner and need it straight away.

13. Could you please send someone to fix our bath tap. My wife got her toe stuck in it and it is very uncomfortable for us.

14. I want to complain about the farmer across the road. Every morning at 5:30 his [blip] wakes me up, and it is getting too much.

15. When the workmen were here they put their tools in my wife's new drawers and made a mess. Please send men with clean tools to finish the job and keep my wife happy.

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Ok just got home and showered and now, Now, NOW uhmmm.... think

I gotta get to beddie bye. sleep

It'll be a 4:30 wake up call in the morning.

Really that's more like the middle of the night. rolleyes

It's been ages since I've had this much fun getting up for work. woot

Some big cheese, (cheddar I think) is coming to our store in the morning to "walk" my department, to see how prepared we are for the mad Spring rush.

I already feel like I'm running around trying to herd chickens all day. slapforehead

Don't know why they would run from me. taz

I think I'll tell this guy to grab a broom and make himself useful while he's "walking". snicker

I'm outta here.

Have a happy day all.

Good morning Boomers.

Sitting here waiting for the snow to start 2-4 inches. My SIL is supposed to get 1 1/4 inches of ice and sleet. Eek!! I wonder if Draclvr is getting anything yet. KC is supposed to get 8-12 inches of snow.

Susie called last night and she has to go back in on Friday for a biopsy. Radiologist said it was calcification but was so dense they have to do a biopsy just to be safe. Ouch, ouch, ouch. I feel for her. Been there, done that.

My results came in yesterday and everything is normal. yay

Me thinks it is going to be one good day to stay in and just goof off.

birthday Gail, have a wonderful day.

The rest of you have a great day.

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 10:32 AM

It started here in earnest about 8:30 and it's sleeting/snowing like mad. We put out extra sunflower seeds for the birds and moved the hanging feed under the hummingbird porch. VERY nasty out there right now. Plus there is lots of thunder, which is NEVER a good sign. The girls at Longmeadow were bringing sleeping bags and toothbrushes to work with them today in case they couldn't get out this afternoon.

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 10:50 AM

We are getting snow now. Haven't been outside but Bill said the birds are really hitting the feeders. Haven't heard any thunder here.

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 11:57 AM

So sorry Joe that the walk through did not go well and that you aren't feeling well. Maybe a quick trip the docs to be sure you don't have strep is in order?

I got an email this morning that my favorite masseuse is having a 20% off today and I have a gift card from my birthday for her from my hubby so I got an 11:15 appt. woot

Gotta run, be back later!

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 12:10 PM

Warmer today thank goodness. Took the morning walk yesterday and had to wear a sweatshirt and a sweatshirt hoodie all zipped up. Wind was awful. But I'm still wearing sandals. rotfl

Did a 'head' count at the seal pool cam today and think I spotted at least 11 baby seals with their moms. That's a huge jump from last week when there were only 2. Getting very fun out there with babies all over and the tourists trying to get pictures. Yesterday, the Ranger and at least 2 Police (now stationed 24/7 there since the big harassment incident) were on the beach itself making sure no one got too close to the new moms which were right where the observers are supposed to stand. Oh boy. In case anyone wants to watch (24 hour live camera) the address is

They move the camera to scan the beach for activity of the seals and any fun incidents with onlookers. Camera was a donation from a private party. Nice.

Off for my walk. Gotta see the sidewalk progress. They have signs up now of No Parking for the next 2 weeks and lots of road closed signs stacked up. Only thing left to do now on the 2 streets (one near and one up the street about 4 streets) is to remove the asphalt road and redo it. Then everything is done, no more cars parking all over my area and the dust will be gone. I'm so tired of yukky dust all over my house, car, inside, outside. You get the picture.

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 12:19 PM

i have been watching it , sorta. looks like the seals have taken up the whole beach at times. sure is fun to watch. thanks for the link

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 12:26 PM

Glad you are enjoying MY seals. They are ugly things (not as cute as sea lions) but it's awesome to see the moms and babies and I'm especially enjoying the tourists. They seem to think the seals are tame and go right up to them. Hence the Ranger and now the Police protection for humans and seals alike. Funny thing is, I've lived here for over 50 years and never gone to see the seals. Geez! I must go on a road trip. Never knew they were this exciting.

Hullo Everyone!
Poor Joe, I hope you feel better soonest!!
Hi Ana and Haroula!!
Congrats on the new computer, Sue. Hubby has a new laptop with Win8 and he says it's not so bad. He went to that OS from XP. Enjoy!
Hi to Gerry, Connie and Darlene. Hope you are having a good day.
Oh Gail, a new furnace. I hope it will be a vast improvement in heat and save energy too!
Hi Bets and Draclvr. Enjoy the birds and stay warm and toasty.
Hello MaG. Always nice to see you here.
My10, you stay warm and cozy also. I have seen on the news what you are getting!!
Ana, enjoy your massage!! My best buddy runs the Massage Center at the Dunes Golf Course here in town. I guess I would have to play a round to qualify, haha.
Sorta, I love YOUR seal cam and I don't think they are ugly at all. I used to love to see the seals in Santa Cruz when I lived in Cali. They are such gregarious and seemingly social creatures.
Hi Nan!! Hope your weather is behaving and that you have a nice day!
Happy Gaming everyone!! wave

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 05:13 PM

Ok Ok, I now have to admit that seals are cute. Just now there were 3 moms with 3 babies at the surf line and the moms were teaching the babies to swim. Totally cute!

Re: Thursday Yeah! - 02/21/13 06:46 PM

Ana sorry, but I was kidding about the walk through. He didn't show up before I left. blush

Shame on you Joe! You had me going. shame I still feel bad that you are ill though. Did you notice that you weren't sick when you moved out? Do you think it's the cats again? sad

Evelyne says hi and is heading to Munich for the weekend to celebrate her husband's birthday. Can you borrow her the band, Nan?

I am back in the corner and need to buckle down since I need time off this weekend. It'll be interesting to meet the deadline. eek
