Good Lord!!

Just when does the snow peter out in Toronto??? :o

Soon, I bloody well hope. We got another ten inches at the store, and at least eight at home.

We have run out of places to put it at the store. It is piled higher than the windows by at least a foot. Today we had to put the new fallen stuff into the "staff" parking spot. So, we now have two customer spaces available instead of the usual three. At the moment, we are the only staff members who drive to work, so staff parking is less of a concern.

And to complete the day's activity list, I must change all the clocks before I can go to bed. There are about thirty, and those are just the ones that have to be manually adjusted. There are plenty more that automatically adjust for DST. I have done them all except the clocks in the vehicles. I am not going out into the snow just for that. I took my boots off when we came home and they are staying off until tomorrow.

Have I mentioned enough yet my size13s? :lol:

:lol:

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah . . .

. . . big shoes

. . . good traction

. . . hairy toes?

Of course--what did you THINK I meant????? :P

The wind is shaking my house soo bad. Come on Spring!

It's really windy here, too. We had the goofiest day of weather--pouring rain, some clearing, more rain, some hail, another drenching rain and now it's gone from 55 to 34 :blink:

We have been painting all day--we painted the bathroom last Sunday, but I decided I didn't like the color once it was on the wall :ph34r: It was a beautiful shade of taupe-green--but on the wall it looked white. Gawd.....So my husband is ready to send me off on a slow boat to somewhere :lol: Actually, he's a good sport about the whole thing.

This time I chose a sand color that looks very Tuscany....

:lol::lol::lol:

Yep, too many Ralph Lauren ads for you. . .

Here's how the Fourth of July goes around here . . . (of course, we don't consider ourselves yuppies) . . . illegal fireworks, filthy kids running around without shoes, nobody sings, all the pyros dads tellin' the kids to stand back while they light the fireworks with an empty paper towel tube that's on fire, and jello with a can of fruit cocktail poured in it.

:lol::lol::lol:

:lol: That sounds about right! At our place, years ago, you add in my grandma- who would refuse to come outside while there were fireworks... shouting from the kitchen window the story about her uncle, the piano player, who blew all his fingers off of one hand with fireworks, and you're all gonna blow your hands off ya damn fools! *sigh* I miss my gram. Man, could she swear! Then I would always come in and sit with her, and listen to her talk about how her uncle still played piano afterward, with his stump. :huh:

I have made those flag cakes, though, for the past several years. My favorite version is lemon cake with cream cheese frosting, blueberries, and raspberries. I'll have to try doing a gluten-free version this year.

Hey Nikki--didja get those blinds cleaned yet? Mine need attention badly :blink:

It's a work in progress Patti - there are many blinds - and it's sooo tedious it makes me want to SCREAM!!!

I call ~11am and Susie's phirst woUrds are "I'm still drunk". :blink::lol:

Shouldn't that be ''I'm sCHtill drunk......hic!...'' :lol:

More than once, he'd reach down, brush his fingers across the treasured substitute, and murmur "mmmmmmm" or "oh yeahhhhhhh".

Tom, your brother :lol:

He was clearly never one to underestimate the texture and adequate wiping qualities of his surrounding plantlife ;)

Nikki, whilst I was pondering the loo planter, it dawned on me that your parents now have an obsolete potty house. Have they disposed of it? Could you move it to your house? . . . for decorative purposes only, of course.

As a museum piece???

...actually the 'outside' loo was indoors but only accesible from the outside (t'was on the back of the kitchen)....it wasn't quite a wooden shack at the bottom of the garden :lol:

...but nonetheless....it scarred my childhood :lol: .........I'd avoid inviting friends back to my house in case they discovered my outside loo secret!!!!!!!!!!!

Have I mentioned enough yet my size13s? :lol:

Only got your word for that Tom haven't we?? :lol:

:lol: Slow boat

I did the same thing in my bathroom Patti! -- Terry painted in 'Duck egg blue' but <_< it didn't look right in my tiny bathroom - so ended up with white and a milk chocolate coloUr.

SARAH!!!!!!! Good to 'see' you

Love your Grandma's 'stump' story :lol:

BEVVY!!!! Love your new av 'how to care for baby' :lol:

Bleh another slow-brain day - smiles replaced by sighs.

Thought I'd snapped out of it yesterday but only felt alright for a couple hrs.

I really got so spoiled w/ that 1st 3-4mos.

Every day was a thrill from the moment eyelids unshuttered.

While occasionally (and entirely excuseably) muttering <women .. .> under his breath?

Re: big feet ;)

Only got your word for that Tom haven't we?? :lol:

That's not enTIREly true. Maybe one of the 8 or 9 forum members I've met tripped over these boats.

<grrrrr to the slow brain .. ...I KNOW there's a funny, at least to me, line possible here>

Hi All Sillies,

Sure is quiet around here today. Well we survived our babysitting experience. it was a lot of fun. John offered to do the 4am feeding, he says it would give him good practice. He actually ended up doing half of it. I have caught the wonderful stomach bug which has been passed around so I needed to haul butt to the loo.....not fun Sillies!

When his mom picked him up this morning he was smiling and laughing, she says he is never like that at the other sitters, and the other sitter said he is bad....he was perfect for us...I think it is the sitters way of maybe trying to get out of babysitting without coming right out and saying it.

How is everyone elses Sunday?

Ooh--that sounds really pretty! B)

Yeah--those first weeks of feeling really good are heady for sure. ;) You'll get back to feeling great again--at least for me there is always a feeling just below the surface that a snag means I'm gonna somehow be propelled back to square one--and that is truly scary. Just remember all the progress you've made :)

Sounds like you'll be asked to babysit again :D

We are finally done...taking a tea break and then back to putting everything back together. I love the color this time--it was so worth the extra work!

I put a chicken (Bell & Evans) in the crock pot this morning so dinner's covered--how that for thinking ahead :lol:

A late sign-in for the day, as I have been busy doing not-so-silly things today. Like, shoveling the additional foot of snow that we got here yesterday and overnight. Arrrgh!

Yeah, it sure is quite around here with Emily off skiing, and Susan off doing--well, I think we all know pretty well what she and David are probably up to. :ph34r:

It is seven o'clock as I pen keyboard this, and I am sitting at my desk upstairs, and I don't have the lights on. The window faces NW and I'm getting plenty of illumination from Sol himself. It will only last a few more minutes, though.

Just a quick visit for now. Must go downstairs to the kitchen to begin preparation of this evening's repast. A post-prandial version of me will return later. :)

Well, here I am again. Tomorrow is Monday, and I don't usually go into the store on Mondays. I catch up on administrative stuff and bookkeeping. But I did that today, while not shoveling, and will be in the store tomorrow. We've got some technical stuff to work out with our Visa provider that will likely require my presence on site.

The morning commute should not be too bad. It is March Break here, so all the schools are closed. Major streets and the highways have all been cleared.

You may still hear from me. After years of deliberately not having internet access at our place of business, things have changed. ;)

A post-prandial version of me will return later. :)

Post- prandial :lol: ......GAD!!! ..post prandial mint anyone????

Morning Sillies! Another week has begun.

Is Susie still MIA with kissey?

Emily how was your skiing....I'm still jealous! I bet your ski conditions are way better than ours!

Patti-I wished I was there too!

Sillies I am still under the weather though, at work, but not feeling too great. The stomach is still acting up but last night I had the headache from hell.....literally. It had me on the floor in tears.

Peter have fun working.

To all my other sillies....Have good days too!

This is a strictly mathematical viewpoint...

It goes like this:

What Makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z ...

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And,

B-U-L-L-S-H-!-T

2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND,

@-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G

1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the BS and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Mornin' all!! :)

I think I woke up w/ at least 1/2 a brain & ramping up, so there's good potential for some silliness today!

(Oh . ...and actual RL productivity)

Where're the trip reports from the Poohbahs????????

I think it was a week's expedition on Em's part.

So here I am at the store, and it is pretty dead. It's March Break, and many of the people in this neighboUrhood go away for the week. Brilliant sunshine, but chilly at -4oC
