. . ..we spent the rest of the day decorating our office for Christmas, making snowflakes out of tin paper and hanging things. Making a Christmas mural....what a wonderful Friday. The snow falling outside really got us into the spirit.

You snow-bound folks do have some advantages, holiday-spirit-wise.

Whoa...Well, this piece also claims that yetis are "impervious to all firepower, with the exception of napalm", which we now know is completely false. So the accuracy of these claims must be questioned. Although at times, I have noticed with our yeti a passing resemblance to Oprah...

Gad, here I am, on a snowy Saturday morning, my big weekend newspaper waiting at the kitchen table, and I sit reading uncyclopedia articles on the nature of yetis...

What has become of me? :lol::lol::rolleyes:

well this is the first year that we are having winter weather this early. Our weather has been changing the last few years, milder winters, very little snow. This year it seems like we are going to a winter.

Okay, here are some things to mull over, Jess:

I have spoken with my DH, who is an insurance adjuster. He laughed quietly and shook his head when I told him about the possible insurance claim that could happen with your lab.

He's informed me that in his job experience with the big insurance companies up here, the adjusters and underwriters know well the "BS" claims (bevy of scientists), as they are a group who submit countless commercial property claims without ever reading the company polices.

There are many exclusionary clauses for laboratories, and unfortunately, practically ANYTHING involving a yeti is not covered. Interior structural damage caused by these creatures will be denied, unless a floater is written into the policy (he says with a chuckle, "BSes NEVER think about extra coverage..it ain't about theories or unknowns, so it doesn't make their radar screens".

There is usually an allowable amount claimable for smoke, water and interior damage inflicted by "smoldering yaks, clowns and Big Bird" (I'm quoting directly from the copy of a standard commercial property policy, here), so no luck, Jess...

I HATE being a bearer of bad news... :(

BTW, any new...ears happening?

:o:lol:

Ok so I am sitting here with my foot up....seems it is a bit sore from a little spill I took 2 nights ago. So sore today that walking is a chore....we were supposed to be getting a Christmas tree today and decorating...

So here is the background on the spill. The other night I had been in my bathtub reading and I got out and let the water out and left. A little while later in a hurry, I ran in there to take a shower. Well, I must have had water on the floor from before and I literally fell on my butt. I twisted my ankle hitting the toliet and hit my head when I hit the floor. It was a sight....let me tell you.

Uh....Amanda, why the need for a bath and a shower during the same evening, with the shower being something needed suddenly and quite hurried?

What's goin' on over there?...

OUCH!!!! (but I must commend you on your cleanliness! ;) )

Hope it eases up soon.

I too am supposed to be putting the decorations up today <_< .......got the tree out.....but sort of lost interest after that.. :blink: *Yawn*

However, I did share a cup of tea and a chin wag with the people who live in the cupboard under the stairs (where the xmas tree lives the rest of the year)

Bit of a nothing day really.........cold, dark and rainy <_<

I take a shower to wash my hair and that. It is too cold here in the mornings to be taking a shower and then leaving for work.

The shower was being hurried because we were getting ready to watch a movie that night and I didn't realize how late it had gotten.

I don't do showers and baths every night, it was just one of those nasty stormy days and a warm bath seemed so relaxing.

:) I am weird!

I've never been to that sight before! What I want to know is which one of you guys wrote that?

:lol: did sound suspiciously written by a Silly, did it not? wacky site!

my thoughts exactly. I was going to ask, you beat me to it. ;)

Oh! How ARE your lovely friends under the stairs? They must miss Yeti. Did you tell them of the smoldering science mis-hap? Probably best not to........

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bloody sunny here. :angry: After two days of glorious rain......I want RAIN on weekends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
