OK, so here is the absolute worse thing, I've EVER had to clean up. My previous old girl, Maggie, had a (sweet?) tooth for cat poo. The neighbors behind us have a cat that comes and uses our mulch as a litter box. When Maggie was younger, it would give her hellaceous gas. When she got older and started having some GI issues, it would cause her to vomit. It would be partially digested and the stench was undescribable. Vomitous cat poo . . . nothing like it!

Rest of the page would be covered with green emoticon guy if he was available.

Hope y'all are having a lovely Sunday morning. :P

OMG- that's what I feel like today- vomitous cat poo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you chocolate with barley malt :angry: :angry:

Nikki- I ADORE your mole!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much cuter than mine.

Happy Birthday Les!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EGADS- shopping this weekend? :ph34r: It's been Christmas since the day after Halloween here at our lovely malls. Do they have MALLS in the UK? I do not like them!!!!!!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE shopping, but I HATE malls.

Nikkeigh- This is a Dutch Oven

I love Urban Dictionary- so foul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is SO exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am jealous.......... no weather here, ever...............

OGM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Listen to this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so I met my friend at Mervyn's - I HATE that store (much prefer Target or all kinds of other places) and, since she only bought two pairs of shoes, I did not get one. :huh: Oh well, didn't want any.............but she DID buy me a late lunch/early dinner.

OMG - - we went to this little somewhat Italian bistro - there are four or five here in the valley. I was telling the waiter that I couldn't have any gluten - he gave me a blank stare :huh: and said - our chef can't eat wheat. Great, I said , it's a little more complicated than that......but send him out.

OMG OMG OMG OMG - -

so the chef comes out and says,

I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE ALSO!

:o

:wub: :wub: :wub:

have sweeter words ever fallen upon the ears of a Celiac dining out????????????????????

I was over the moon, nearly kissed him, he was obviously quite knowledgeable and told me he would make sure anything I ate was safe......................

so needless to say, that's where my mom and I will be going to lunch on Fridays........

Nothing funny to add tonight. Saturday was a busy day and I didn't get here at all. Just catching up now.

Happy birthday, Les. :)

A celiac's dream: Going to a restaurant and discovering that the chef is a celiac. Wow! :):)

US Thanksgiving is in just a few days. Who is having the Yeti over for the turkey dinner? ;)

Here in Canada we have our Thanksgiving the second Monday in October, so it is is over for this year. But, since I have allegience to both Canada and the US (dual citizen) I am well aware of the American version. Unless you are totally demented, don't even try to go shopping on Friday. :lol:

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Well, it IS lovely trying to figure out whether Maggie was an animal or a kid! :lol: The first time through I was thinking you were talking about a child! :lol::o :o

Well, Maggie (the dog) was in my av awhile back. I just assumed everyone saw/remebered her. But just to clarify . . . we never let our children play with lathes and we never let our children snack on cat poo! :lol:

so the chef comes out and says,

On his body, did he have a shirt? Yeah, that's better :huh::huh::lol:

US Thanksgiving is in just a few days. Who is having the Yeti over for the turkey dinner? ;)

Well, he can come to my mom's. What's one more? He shouldn't be all that much trouble. After the big turkey dinner, I'm sure he'll curl up in the corner and take a nap.

I just don't understand how people can stay in and NOT go get some of the deals on Friday. I would go crazy. :blink:

Right now, I'm tormented... I can't decide whether to buy the boys Optimus Prime transformers for Christmas... they want them soooo bad, but some of the other Transformers they have fall apart all the time. It drives Ez crazy, and then he drives me crazy.

The new toys aren't well-made! :angry:

Believe me when I say . . . It is really easy for me to NOT go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Plus, I like to have most everything done by then . . . otherwise, I get panicky that I'm not going to get it all done! This is the ONE thing that totally goes against my typically procrastinating nature.

It's after midnight . . . I'm turning into a pumpkin . . . GoodNight Sillies!

Gahhhhh...What a birthday party over here...beginning to clean up. I believe there were twenty of us (my brood, my two siblings and their grown kids, grandkids and three great-grandkids)...I have a SUPERB shot of my dad as...incredibly..himself. I had trouble remembering it was him. I kept looking at this old man, without a full beard and moustache, no long, flowing tresses or bright red lipstick, no body piercings or Cyrano de Bergerac nose, and thinking, "who IS that elderly gentleman?" I am trying to put this pic up as my avatar, but it keeps telling me that it's too big, even though it is no bigger than other ones I've used before. I'm trying to crop it...Grrrrrr... Carry on!

I guess if I paid the bills I might have a different take on this .... but, trust me, it is NOT hard for me to stay in on Friday!

I'm glad the party was a good one, Emily! He went as himself? Are you sure it was really him?

They said the Yeti could fly without a passport as long as he will entertain the other patrons on the flight. Does he know any pilgrim stories or Thanksgiving songs?

Can we dress him in colonial attire?

Somebody else can measure his inseam this time!

I'm wondering...there may be security issues with the yeti flying from Europe into the States. They may perhaps suspect that he is a terrorist in a large, furry costume. Our yeti is SO big, and Osama Bin Laden is about 6 foot 6...might they suspect? He'll be carrying no luggage, will be saying nothing...flags could well go up. Oh! What do you think the chances are of his name (or one very like it) being on the extensive no-fly list?! Perhaps there is a suspected terrorist named YETI, as well! Like, Momnar Yeti, or Yeti Bin Laden. Geez, all these things we have to think about now....

:lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol: excellent.......someone's got to go with him to shop for the costume

Once he's gone through passport control it's out of my hands and frankly I can't stand long goodbyes...a yeti crying in public...the stares & looks :rolleyes:

OMG this is addicting - - - I got as high as - was it rollicking rabbit?

:lol::lol: Excellent!!!

Bobbing bobcat here (OMG sooo crap) ....but I ain't finished yet !!!!!

...and can I just say your 'Black Friday' sound heinous + evil and only for those with nerves of steel !!!

We do have Malls here in the UK - *mutters* EVIL.....In hell they make you go Christmas shopping ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.

So exhausting, makes my feet hurt....the queues, the people pushing and shoving, the heat .... <_<

Our big sales are after xmas on 'Boxing Day' (do you have this??) on the 26th...ugghh!!!

OH, and forgive my ignorance but WHAT are you peeps giving thanks for??? :unsure:

I think the Yeti will get through just fine .... they're not allowed to profile and search based on looks, so they'll let him through just to prove they don't.
