Always amazed at how much I miss over the weekend. Here in Seattle it's dark and has been pouring rain since yesterday. My driveway is three inches of standing water. My dirt/gravel driveway....

The weather is very cold and windy here...we went out for lunch and it was cold the whole way there, and we ate at this old hotel and it was not warm inside at all....I am still cold 2 hrs later.

Yesterday I made homemade soup for dinner and that is dinner tonight. I am looking forward to cuddling with my cat underneath a blanket and vegging the rest of the night. :)

That's great :D

Closet gets done today!!!!!!!

Does that mean the funky closet lady comes back again?

I will try to get a few pictures scanned in today and into a new avatar :):):) It is so exciting looking at them, there are things I don't remember from that day already, it was a big blur. It will be nice when the DVD is done so I can really see what it was all like. :)

Congratulations Tom - you wanted to be Lord Tom, right? Earl of Silly? Duke of Mirth?

Here's another Grandpa story:

Grandpa went to a farm show and bought an electric chicken-picker . . . that would be the latest and greatest technology for taking the feathers off of a (dead) chicken. Grandma was majorly PO'd because they didn't have electricity yet - and it was over a year before they did. On a side note, the chicken-picker still works.

Informal Poll: How many here have ever dressed a chicken? (For all you city types, that means take all the feathers off, not dress it in cute designer outfits and put it in a purse to carry with you.)

OMG I'm actually tearing up a bit from the laughter at my misreading it at first as

"How many here have ever dressed AS a chicken? "

:lol: :lol: :lol:

So I'm imagining what a chicken-suit would require and that the elastic used to keep a beak in place could get uncomfortable.

:lol::lol:

Would love to see more pics from the wedding--your current avatar is beautiful! My wedding day was a blur, too. There were so many little things I actually forgot until the pictures came back.

No, no closet lady! The installers (2 guys) are in there now doing their thing. I can't wait to put everything away once and for all--we have clothes all over the bedroom and on the dining room table. Ugh :angry:

All hail the new King!! :D

I've never dressed a chicken (God forbid :lol: ), but my dad tells me that his mother used to. She would actually wring it's neck and then dress it. I'm way too much of a wuss for that :P

I never really knew her, she passed away when I was 4.

Ummmm . . . now that you've gone and done it . . . and can't take it back . . . just wanted to let you know that you are NOT inheriting a crown and sceptor. You are indeed inheriting a chicken costume. Yes, complete with beak. Did you think it was that uncomfortable, Amanda?

Did you guys here the news? MC Hammer is suing the Chicken Butt Cooties. He said their song "Can't Pluck This" is copyright infringement. I think he's grasping at straws . . . just needs the money.

When I read your line I just had the funniest picture in my head....chickens dancing in their own music video with baggy pants on with loud 80's colors singing Can't Pluck This!!!

Hey! I'm a long-time subscriber! I cannot believe I've found a fellow GGQ follower! I love the puzzle page, the "find the missing modifiers" and my particular favorite, "unscramble the participial phrases". What fun! And that latest centrefold in the faUll issue!...it was a detailed shot of a split infinitive clearly dominating a subordinate clause...I cannot leave any issues lying around the house, as I've got two kids. :lol::lol:

Ummmm . . . now that you've gone and done it . . . and can't take it back . . . just wanted to let you know that you are NOT inheriting a crown and sceptor.

<_< So THAT'S why MY contract has a handwritten (bubble-gum pink Crayon naturally) addendum in several languages, each w/ a different translation.

Everything from

"At end of term, and/or in the event that _______'s reign is suspended, all material assets (heretofore referred to as M.A., which consists of, but is not limited to, bank accounts, portfolios, real properties (and their contents), royal doodads and an original zipper-and-all copy of the Stones' Sticky Fingers album."

----to----

"We keep da stuff"

You are indeed inheriting a chicken costume. Yes, complete with beak.

:o igetachickencostumeigetachickencostumeigetachickencostume!!!!!!!!! :D:o :o

We really should spring for a new beak.

Some of the new Finnish ones have TWO or MORE types of foam padding and can practically be custom contoured!

But no need to get the one w/ the satellite radio options cuz I'm just NOT paying for radio!! AM/FM will be fine. :P
