Finding the first suggestion of a parade (by Emily, as it turns out) took me back 131 pages, to post number 3021 on page 202. And that was only a month ago. I have been reading off and on all day, and am now on page 244. I started on page 280 yesterday, so I still have a lot to catch up on. You people here are, well, I'm not quite sure of the right word for it.

The St Remy brandy helped last night, but this thread calls for something serious. A new, non-feline avatar is called for! :lol: Cheers!

Wow!!!! We ARE impressive! . . . and I'm sure the alcohol makes our previous rantings and ramblings much more HeLarryUs!

Wow!!!! We ARE impressive! . . . and I'm sure the alcohol makes our previous rantings and ramblings much more HeLarryUs!

OMG - - do you think IMPRESSIVE was the word he was going to use? Because I don't. :lol: :lol: :lol: And note that he referred to us as "you people" - - firmly attempting to establish himself as - something OTHER than us. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Peter, this is fantastic. I'm SO pleased you've joined us, and talk about doing things right--none of this jump-right-in, try-to-stay-afloat-and-catch-up nonsense. Peter is studying us, getting the history, perhaps laying the groundwork for a new direction in this madness...Your name means "rock", Peter, but I bet you can bring a lot more to us here than solid, strong reason. WE CAN'T HANDLE ANY OF THAT!

Your avatar says it all...... :lol:

Mygawd...we've been circling through this vortex for a lot longer than I thought. I think this kind of thing commonly happens within vortexes--time bends, and perhaps even disappears completely. I have spent a moment on here, and the sun has set, the kids are suddenly home from school, Gus very badly needs out...an hour, not a moment. :lol: Guess it'll be 100 pages back to hit the Parade Plans, Peter (wow...that alliteration should be put into a song--so catchy! "Peruse our Parade Plans, Peter"...)

Emily of the North........I just HAVE to comment on this e'er-so-poetic and APT musing of your'n......a moment.......a spot of time........just a wee second.........and then BAM - - indeed, the setting sun, whining dingos, a burnt college-educated turkey breast.............

:lol:

that really describes how my life has been since the internet entered my world...............

:lol:

Amanda!!!!!!!!!!!! She surfaces for air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:wub:

To where shall our parade head now?? things are just disintegrating..........people, to quote a line from...from..................well, it was Wallace and Gromet, was it.........The Wrong Trousers? no...it was another one.........................

people........... "get yourselves together down there!"

:lol:

Our PARADE needs a new purpose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh where, oh where, is my zombie man, and future husbnad..........I miss my half-naked zombie man..............

OK . . . with all the Thanksgiving plans being mentioned, here is how ours is panning out:

Background: Dad had a stroke several years ago. Loss use of his right side. Can shuffle for short distances, can't speak but understands perfectly . . . you wouldn't believe how opinionated and bossy he is for a man who can not speak!!! Mom had recent major medical issues (that I won't go into here but fingers crossed that she's through the worst of it). Mom is normally the one that makes the Thanksgiving Day Feast. If it's not her, then my Uncle does it - kind of like a pitch-in. This is the first year that we have to maintain gluten-free menu items for my kids . . . normally wouldn't be that big of a deal since I provide manual labor during meal preparation and can keep an eye on things. Mom & Dad live 300 miles away. Here's the phone call:

Me: Mom, just wanted to let you know that I got a turkey breast that I will bring with me that I will make for the kids so you don't have to figure out what turkey to buy.

Mom: Well, I guess I'll get another breast and maybe a ham.

Me: How many are coming?

Mom: So far, 22.

Me: Who's cooking?

Mom: You.

Me: <Silence>

Mom: Ashley said she'll peel the potatos.

:huh::huh::huh:

:lol:

We can have our own spot in the Macy's Day parade if we wanted. Or we could do our own little Thanksgiving parade too. Peter, what would you like to do in our parade? If you haven't heard we have quite the celebrity line-up?

Isn't the answer obvious??? We're Going to New York!!! It's almost time for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! We've got to use the time between now and then to get things cleaned up and make a few repairs. Some of those floats were in quite a shambles after the Amanda's Wedding Parade. Not to mention the smell of Hoff wee that has permeated the air. Will Febreeze get rid of that?

I'm now on page 269. The drink in the current avatar is Beefeater gin with a bit of dry vermouth, shaken with ice and then strained. St Remy is a brandy that I occasionally sip neat, as I did last night. Somehow, alcohol seems to make it easier to understand parts of this thread. :P

So we're goign to New York? YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Richard...........get ready for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the smell of Wee and Yeti............well, isn't there a special Febreeze for that? I have one for my car but I swear I saw a Febreeze Wee-be-gone version at Big Lots the other day.........hard to find, though...........

OMG do you know what some pundit said the other day about the writers' strike? It was something like..............PLEASE don't let there be another David Hasselhoff eating-food-off-the-floor episode while the writers are on strike................

:lol:

SEE??????????? there's that vortex of which Emily spoke!!!!!!!!!! I came back to check my ebay progress, and BAM, 30 minutes later, I"m STILL HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :wacko:

<green-puke-face emoticon here>

OMG - brandy could make me vomit - - :o:blink:

I TRIED to be a brandy drinker...and a scotch drinker.......but dang, those things could just make me THROW UP. I have to stick with wine adn candy-flavoUred cocktails, or mojitos, that's about it.....

HOWEVER - - at a campfire a couple of years ago a nice lady was sharing her B & B wtih us - anyone know if that's gluten-free? it was MIGHTY TASTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes: Now THAT spirit, I could drink. ;)

So good old NYC it is!!! Danny is smiling, he is a NY native and says that he will enjoy promoting the store in NYC.

OMG! tell Danny we are going to meet at his parking lot for the preparations. ;) AND afterwards for a free gluten-free feast, let him know he'll be preparing it. This will be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG Janet my avatar-stealing friend!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: Does that photo just crack you UP??????? Annie looking so pained...as my friend said, tika was really the better model (looked bored, though).....with Annie, as usual, it was "all about her." (she was trying to hold my hand the whole time during the photo shoot) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Annie's purse did fetch $109. Mommy is pleased. Got the NICEST note from the dog-owner who bought it......her Bichon is in renal failure. :( But she will have a nice purse to match her vintage Ferragmo pumps from the 90's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:P

off to bed.

P.S.

SARAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I will be STUDYING your bro's blog!!! How funny is that!!!!! DID HE make mention of a striking writer's disappointment if the Hoff is seen eating food off the floor????? I will scrutinize the site...................... Does he live in Hollywood? Can he get me a job as an extra? I"ve done it twice - - I promise I won't make any trouble ;)

I'm not sure, but it sounds like something he'd find amusing.

:lol: He writes from right here in NC, but he'd love to move out there eventually. He does have a few big writer buddies out there, though, and his site's gotten a ton of recognition.

He's been out to LA, and is going again next year. That's saying a lot when you're from NC. :ph34r: I gotta tell you guys, and it's ok to laugh- California almost seems like another planet to me. Although I've done plenty of traveling north, and a little south, I've never been off the east coast. Ah well, someday.

PS- My best friend keeps trying to get me to "pare down" my stuff, and I keep trying... but I just can't do it anymore! I already have a shed full of stuff I need to take to Goodwill, but I keep procrastinating. If we lived closer to town, I could get somebody to come and haul this crap off for me. <_<

PPS- Besides... I like my crap. What if I walk into Goodwill and see somebody carrying around one of my kids' baby shirts? I'd cry.
