Oh {{{hugs}}}} Sarah (Ouch on being sick out of your nose :o )

Yes, I'm sorry for your icky experience. :( Involvement of the nose in puking just adds insult to injury . . . and makes for some interesting Kleenex contents for the next couple of hours! :huh:

Has anyone ever had a Christmas tree that keeps falling over?!?! We got our tree a couple of weeks ago and it falls down almost everyday! Any suggestions? This is our first real tree and we don't seem to be very good at it. I think we may try tying it to the nearby railing to see if that helps. Nothings zaps the Christmas spirit like your tree lying on the ground and the water getting on all of the presents under there. <_<

Alex, :lol: :lol: :lol: I've never heard of that problem! I'm guessing your tree holder is too small for the tree.

We have a fake tree .... that means no messing with tree holders, no ticks in the tree, and no need to restring the lights every year .... for the smell, I have a candle. :)

Emily - mygawd - what are you wearing to the party tonight..........



Gaaaaaahhh....not positive as yet. Likely black, as I feel rather PMS-ey and like a blimp...black always helps me along in that situation...




I miss my zombie man.


Y'know, I kinda miss him, too...that lean, eviscerated look... :o


RAINING HERE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:( :angry:


MORE SNOW HERE TODAY!!!!!!
:o :angry: Unbelievable...about another 5cm...
Uh...Global warming? Can you please rear your ugly head? Any time, now...


Question, does anyone know a good small dog breed that are good with kids?


Don't ever do small breeds myself, but bichon frises are very lovely little, non-shedding dogs...

And Nikki, I would LOVE to have met up with you...but we weren't in Kent (don't think), we stayed briefly in Westminister, and Cheriton-Nr-Aylesfod. Near you?

My turn to stray from the Silly.

Got a Christmas Letter from SIL Pam yesterday. She was married to my older brother, Pat, who died somewhat suddenly in July '06.
One bit of news evoked a combination of sadness, pride, & maybe a dozen other emotions I can't think of names for right now. Overall more heartwarming than heartwrenching tho.

Pat was an Alaska State Parks Ranger and had been Chief Ranger at Hatcher Pass Rec. Area & Independence Mine State Park.

Quoting Pam - "Also in June, I met w/ Alaska State Parks who asked my permission to name the ridge above Independence Bowl 'Murphy Ridge'. This was such a perfect idea because it oversees the whole valley that was Pat's passion!. Ranger Dan and I also located a beautiful site for a bench that will be installed in Pat's honor next summer using proceeds from his memorial fund."


<sorry ladies, but she wrote "honor" not honoUr> :P :lol:

Oy - I got a little verklempt there after typing Murphy Ridge.

Ran into this interview from '05.
Great story towards the middle.

OK .. .. . .I'm done . . . ..just had to share this impactful news w/ my sillyfriends. :wub: :)


P.S. Extra FYI - Pat's obit etc

Well, for the gift basket, she was probably thinking you could get any one drink you wanted for $5 ... so that makes sense.

However, I would tell her you are not working for lower wages. It's not a gift ... she's hiring you to take care of her dog ... this is what it costs, period.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:o

Half-nekkid man alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm minding my own business, taking out the trash cans. Down the street, at the very end, is a distinctly slow-ambling male, clad only in thin pajama bottoms. No shirt. Or, I think to myself - - is it a flesh-coloUred shirt? I stare and stare. He's less than 1/4 mile away.

Well, I simply can't take it - I've discerned he's got no shirt on (not normal folks, even when it's 110 in summer). I jump in the car, and take a spin around the block.

Yup, he's got no shirt on, a shaved head, a ghostly palloUr, and is clutching his abdomen. His eyes meet mine, they are steely gray, adn DON"T WORRY EVERYBODY, I can do a police sketch if necessary. ;)

So.....I see that there is nothign further I can do....and go back home.

Soon, he is walkign AGAIN around the block.....shufflign very slowly - and is in front of my house. I whip out my camera, but alas, to take his photo, would have had to move the blinds and he would have heard me as window is open.

But - I was able to discern that he has a large bandage on his abdomen, indicating recent surgery - OR A STAB WOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o or maybe a GUNSHOT!!!!!!!!! (alas, no bandage or scar in rear, indicating bullet egress - - but then again, perhpas it is lodged in his SPLEEN or something, and hence the ashy paloUr) :huh:

but tell me this - what man in his fifties walks around, half-clad in cooler weather, who's just had surgery, in THIS gated, stepford, Aryan community? Has he LOST his MIND???

stay tuned.

I am out of my MIND for things like this. :lol:


Lord help me, I have no life . . . here is Susie's first post on the Zombie man.
