I had the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with Tom during lunch.....and quite a handsome Woodly Harrelson he was (is)!

I have had a couple drinks tonight.

Susie, I have been reading this thread for a while before posting, and now... at random times during the day, the word "Mojito" pops into my head. Why does this happen? I don't know, except that I love words, and oh my gosh I have brownies in the oven, hold on.

SARAH!!! utter and complete (slightly) inebriated goofball, with mojitos and brownies!!!! oh my gaaaaaawd, where do you live, I"m coming right over!!!!!!!!!!!!! :P And YES, tell your hubby that we talk about POOP and anything else we feel like talking about! (except for this thread, which, like a Seinfeld episode, is about NOTHING!)

*cough*....*splutter* ermmm.....not on your nelly Patti !!! :lol:

My kitchen is quite squalid :lol: ....needs the re-model.....but I'm just waiting on that lottery win ;)

:lol: she said squalid. A word I particularly love.

This weather is HEINOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! Give me my October. (need pumpkin emoticon)

oh my Looooord - - we have crystal clear and sunny here, and my friend and I, who watched movies last ngith and into today (she spent the night, avoiding the necessary drudgery of her squalid house - undergoing heinous remodel) were FURIOUS and sad that it wasn't raining and dreary and stormy and cold - that is what WE like best!! you can HAVE this stinkin' sunny weather!!!!! we are SICK of it!!!!!!! :lol:

oh Bev - so sorry about the ankle. Here's hoping you are drinking cosmos and jumping on the trampoline again QUITE SOON. :)

Carla - love the house!!!

Hi Julie!

and everybody else - - halloooooooooooooooo!!!

back out to make my second and last mojito of today. You know, I THOUGHT it was Last of the Mojitos a few weeks ago, but alas, there was still rum in the fridge and mint growing like crazy in back, so another bag of limes was purchased and voila, here you go.

:P

Ahhh Sarah! If on the OMG thread, you'd be

christened Corneal Spice!

Tom- it wasn't me......... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Whoops! My "<ouch Bev>" was SUPPOSED to be shorthand sympathy for :rollankle: :rolleyes: :rollankle: :rolleyes: :rollankle: :rollankle: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

(my bad!) ;)

Oy it was SO hard to get yesterday's post done! I started it early afternoon and finally hit send w/ my head on the pillow. (Hmmm, to clarify, I DID actually hit send with a finger, WHILE my head was on the pillow)

OK now THIS next set of occurences may require some suspension of disbelief. (Or maybe only if a guy is reading it?)

1st John buys a 46" widescreen TV.

2nd Somehow, and this surprised the $&!*# outta me, plain old rabbit ears receive digital tv signals and we're getting a dozen HiDef channels free, over the air. :o:) :)

3rd A work buddy gives John 4 tickets to today's 49ers game!!!!!!!

I'm uncertain whether everyone will appreciate how special attending an NFL game is. I'm a HUGE football fan (Nikki - don't start w/ me! You know what I mean! :lol: ) and yet haven't BEEN to an NFL game since '89. It aint' baseball w/ their 81 home games. Each team has only 8. I'd bet that millions of NFL fans have NEVER attended a game.

So it's immense to suddenly be going to an NFL game AND there's more tickets coming!! Niners play in "Monster Park", nee Candlestick, and Monster Cable is one of the guys' biggest clients, as he's the main tv/audio buyer for Frys!!! (Only those w/ a Frys nearby will appreciate the significance of that - and uh oh . .. . .maybe no one? They're mostly in the west, but Indy has one. Donna!!! YOU know how huge Fry's is!! Tell 'em!! :lol: )

Anyway - time to chill the Redbridge for tailgating at the 'Stick!!!! (I'm tellin ya, this is HUUUUUUUUGE!! I got chills writing that!)

<if these great things keep happening I may need to hire someone to follow me around pinching me. My DREAMS aren't always this unbelievable!)

Have a wonderfully Silly Sunday everyone!!! :D:)

Sunday Silly-

A Hole Behind

A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course, became confused as to where he was on the course.

Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing.

She replied,

Thank you. :)

Tom, I hope you had a good time at the game. I've been to three NFL games ... in high school our marching band marched at both a Cleveland Browns and a Cincinnati Bengals game. Then a few years ago I went to a Colts game ... it was wasted on me though ... not much of a football fan here ...

:lol: Next time you're coming out to the other side of the country (North Carolina,) let me know and we'll have a party! I looove throwing parties. Next spring we're going to build a pond with a waterfall going down the hill in our back yard, and add onto our back deck. Normally this type of thing would probably be beyond our means, especially with me going back to school soon, but my dad excels in building and landscaping, and he will work for food as long as I help ;)

NFL games - yet ANOTHER thing they make you do in HELL....

Hallloooooo Sillies!! I just flew in and boy are my . . .

Spent a bit of time catching up on my reading. Missed a couple of good posts that I would have liked to have jumped in on . . . may be too late . . . or maybe I'm just too tired right now.

Can't let this one go tho'

I had the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with Tom during lunch.....and quite a handsome Woodly Harrelson he was (is)!

Woodly? OK, Woodly it is!! So in addition to the accupuncturist, you've got Lisa giving you massages?

(Sorry guys...Now, he'll act like a genuine tamponhead, with a stuck up attitude and a swelled ego)

:lol::lol::lol:

Actually, before realizing ankle was in such bad shape, i did make it to the Topsfield fair . . .

Bev, my best friend just moved to Boxford. She is the instigator (and timeshare owner) of the Hilton Head trip. Her husband took the kids to the Topsfield fair on Thursday. Small World.

Carla- Your house look SO COOL!!!!!!

Carla, just got in . . . missed it!

Welcome Alex and Sarah!

More tomorrow . . . time to check a couple of other threads and then time for ZZZZZZZZZZ's.

Nikki, love your choice of name for your kitty...Will is my DH's name, as well. Means "strong protector". Dunno about my husband, but I bet that kitten could offer up some resolute protection! :) He looks adorable.

Tom, I won't agree entirely with the mass, who strongly dislike football. I have followed the NFL a little, but I must tell you, here in Canada we did do one thing right many years ago, and that was create a VERY exciting, entertaining world of football. It is a much, and I do mean much, faster, more enthralling game in the CFL than in the NFL. Three downs, a longer field (end zones), big, scrappy players that are making a third of what the NFL superstars are...the stadiums are electric! I've gone since I was a young kid, and we take our kids to games now. Have you ever watched a CFL game? If you get the chance, do!

Ahhhh....I'm always so far from all the action. :( Sarah, I wanna come to your party, too, but I'm just too far away from NC! Man, we Canadians are too far from everything...no fair.

-_- OK, now that I'm back, I will share some of my son's photos. I wanted to wait until we got back so none of them would be up for too long. Here is one that makes me think he was auditioning for the Blair Witch Project

Just saw your thread from August about riding- has your daughter gone yet? I LOVE horses and riding :wub: :wub: :wub:

I happened to sit with a "talker" on the plane yesterday. (You never know how those are going to turn out.) Fortunately for me, she had a lot of local horse knowledge. Knows the different barns . . . who is good for lessons for young kids . . . who is giving pony rides vs who is teaching them how to take care of a horse . . . stuff like that. So I got off the plane with a couple of phone numbers and an invitation to bring my daughter over to visit her farm (15 horses). I'll have to do a drive-by (my stalker instincts kicking in :ph34r: )

Football . . . yes, I do enjoy it . . . always root for the home team no matter where I live. I like to go to the game once in a while but don't feel the need to be a season ticket holder (I'm not made of money, you know!) I also don't care to watch any of the other games other than the home town team. I am a football widow, though. Might as well not even talk to my husband on Sundays - he can only grunt on those days. He's out with the guys every Monday night to watch the game at the bar. He was in a Fantasy Football league before most people had even heard of them. He gets spreadsheets and magazines and emailed notifications to help pick the best team each year. Research starts in June . . . It's a wonder that I will even watch the home team.

OK - emoticons . . .

:ph34r: stalker emoticon

:rolleyes: Umm, OK, sure, I meant to do that

<_< I knew that wouldn't work

:D I bleach my teeth

-_- shhhh, don't talk now, I'm listening to the voices in my head

B) I play the sax, you can call me Woodly

Waynesville is about 3 1/2 hours southwest of us. I've never been to Waynesville, but I used to live in Boone, NC- north of there. Western NC is absolutely beautiful. Also, I saw the exterior pic of your house, and I just love it!

It is a beautiful area. She actually lives right next to Cold Mountain.

Football . . . yes, I do enjoy it . . .

I enjoy all that goes along with going to a football game ... the game itself is incidental ... I prefer college football.

:D I bleach my teeth

Or, Carla when she gets her braces off and whitens her teeth. :D

I cannot begin to tell you how much mouth pain I'm in. The ortho adjusted them and I got a new wire across my mouth. The wire was too long and it has made big sores in the back of both sides of my mouth. I filed it down on both sides, not easy to do, LOL. Now I have wax over it so the sores can heal. I can hardly eat ... in fact, I don't eat much. I also have six ruber bands pulling my teeth together, so I keep clenching my jaw because it's too difficult to open. Ouch.
