Lil' Griff scored a goal at field hockey today and Pete's homemade goat feta is awesome!

Ummm...lessee...got all the laundry done. Got about half of my "honey do" list done...of course, April's not forcing me to do shit while she's gone. I just thought it would be nice to knock a lot of stuff out while she's out of town, so I made my own "honey do" list. Going to see a few local bands tonight, then Heaven & Hell tomorrow. Fuck yeah!

monster 09-22-2007 10:45 PM

No soccer games this weekend -I think everyone stayed home to eat scottish breakfast =Yummy Kippers or something.

So Beest and I did some stripping on the deck in the dark.

And it's my birthday tomorrow. I'm going to throw a pot.

snozzberries 09-23-2007 12:56 AM

I went hiking today and didn't fall down! not even once!

This is a great feat for my clumsy ass.

Um. What does 'throw a pot' mean, exactly?

Is it like this:

(SINGS)

"Hand me down that can o' beans, hand me down that can o' beans, hand me down that can o' beans, I'm throwin' it away! Out the window go the beans, out the window go the beans, out the window go the beans, I had a lucky day! Mary, M-M-M-Mary, my sweet canary, I'm gonna take you out tonight!!

?

Razzmatazz13 09-23-2007 06:41 PM

Ah!
So I was doing my cashier thing..and an old guy walks up to my counter as I grab my scanny gun thingie...he did the whole "hands up so you don't shoot" thing...so I pointed it at him and he goes..

"Don't tase me bro!"

I kid you not. Best. Customer. Everrrrrr.

Make a bowl on a potters wheel.

I threw three, actually, and they were only slightly wonky. It's been a few years.

monster 09-23-2007 10:55 PM

Oh and beest gave me a little head for my birthday.

(It's a little skeletal and in a cage with glowing eyes)

Beauty!

BigV 09-24-2007 10:46 AM

A shower.

Bonus: happiness radius + 3, + 6 downwind.

theotherguy 09-24-2007 10:56 AM

Fixed my hole.

OK, you can start now.

BigV 09-24-2007 10:59 AM

That's a relief.

I've engaged in hand to hand combat with sewer plumbing before--it is not pretty. I have come to the rationalization that in *this* case, I have more money than time. Congratulations!

Clodfobble 09-24-2007 05:20 PM

Everything is okay with Teenyfob! I've been referred to a specialist, but supposedly under his watchful eye things should stay fine. Things are much less stressed in the fob household today.

glatt 09-24-2007 05:35 PM

Awesome!!

xoxoxoBruce 09-24-2007 07:28 PM

Very, very good news Clod. :thumb:

BigV 09-24-2007 08:15 PM

Thank goodness.

There is no agony like worrying about one's children. I'm **so** happy to hear your good news!

Jeboduuza 09-24-2007 09:12 PM

Got the day off work.

glatt 09-25-2007 08:28 AM

I married the most wonderful woman 14 years ago today.

So I'm playing hooky today, and we're going for a hike* while the kids are in school.

*No, that's not what the kids are calling it these days.

bluecuracao 09-25-2007 01:04 PM

Congrats, glatt!

Cicero 09-25-2007 01:12 PM

That's sweet....*oh*
My husband and I call it playing "Hooker"- I mean Hooky......
When we first met we made it a habit...we would call in and watch stupid scary "B" films all day in bed and order chinese.

Happy #14!

Clodfobble 09-25-2007 07:08 PM

Congratulations, glatt!

glatt 09-25-2007 08:39 PM

Thanks, all.

I'm having a good day.

binky 09-25-2007 08:57 PM

my kids' homework is done!!!!!

bluecuracao 09-25-2007 09:28 PM

This evening, we did grocery shopping at an actual grocery store, for the first time since...I can't remember. Included a pleasant, 6-block stroll through Society Hill. Everything else aside, having the time and not being too tired to do something like this was kind of amazing.

I didn't know that Spaghettios are owned by Campbell's now.

Griff 09-27-2007 03:40 PM

Employed? Why yes I am. :D Just got the call, I'll be snuggling up to the gooberment teat next week.

theotherguy 09-27-2007 03:48 PM

Congratulations, Griff.

Griff 09-27-2007 03:49 PM

Thank ya!

HungLikeJesus 09-27-2007 03:51 PM

Just save some milk for the rest of us.

jester 09-27-2007 03:52 PM

Good Job, Griff:thumb:

Griff 09-27-2007 03:55 PM

I won't say how little I'll be making, but think early intervention for low SES kids not designing things that go boom.

glatt 09-27-2007 03:56 PM

Excellent! What will you be teaching?

theotherguy 09-27-2007 04:11 PM

it seems you will be working for a worthy cause.

Griff 09-27-2007 04:20 PM

Special Education in a Head Start program. I was in Head Start as a kid so it kinda closes a circle.

Sweet! Stay with it and get a pension, even if it sucks as time goes on.

Clodfobble 09-27-2007 07:44 PM

Woo! Go Griff!

DanaC 09-27-2007 07:49 PM

Yey Griff! Marvellous news, mate.:)

sorry, but I missed why you haven't been able to do this. Whatever it was, glad to hear it's on the up, even if the spaghettios news is worrisome!

Well, it's about time you got off your ass and helped Pete carry the load. Break a leg, Man.

freshnesschronic 09-28-2007 10:01 AM

While waiting for the bus I saw a guy joyfully roller blading down the street, clapping his hands and singing a song.

On the flip side there's these goddamn workers doing shit right outside and on our siding and they won't let me sleep. It is loud.

Thanks, monster. My fiance just closed his store, which had ruled our lives for the past few years. Being self-employed doesn't always mean freedom, like they say it does!

In my experience being self-employed doesn't mean that you are your own boss, it means that each one of your clients is your boss. I'd rather be an employee anyday :yelsick: .

LabRat 10-01-2007 04:14 PM

I am happy to read of others good news, congrats all!!

Despite getting my period again last week, my blood tests came back normal/good. Hopefully we've just been really unlucky timewise. Next step? Getting hubby to give a sample. Easier said than done. Heh.

theotherguy 10-01-2007 04:21 PM

Ah, just tell him to stop running it down the shower drain and put it in a cup.

bluecuracao 10-01-2007 05:53 PM

I just found out today that I have a job. Woo hoo!

It's short-term, but that works well enough for now.

I'm sure he'll manage if you give him a hand.

DanaC 10-02-2007 07:28 AM

congrats blue! What's the job?

theotherguy 10-02-2007 09:40 AM

I got a promotion at work! I will now be over more operations. I get to dump some of my duties I do not enjoy onto other unsupecting fools and take over some of the business I enjoy. MUCH less travel and more pay! Win. Win.

DanaC 10-02-2007 09:47 AM

Yey! Totally cool:)

Cicero 10-02-2007 11:51 AM

Awesome! Hey blue- sometimes the short-terms turn into long-terms....you know that.....I know that.....just try not to forget it!
And
theotherguy turns into thebossofyouguy, congrats!

Undertoad 10-02-2007 01:52 PM

No matter what happens, no matter how we all got here, life is a tremendous gift.

bluecuracao 10-02-2007 10:29 PM

Thanks you guys--and mucho congrats to you, TOG.

I'm kind of glad this this particular job is not long-term, as it's further away than I'd want to travel for more than a few months. But it'll give me time and funds to put together a really nice portfolio, and shop around for workplaces with shorter commutes.

Bullitt 10-02-2007 10:49 PM

Congrats blue and TOG!


What's making me happy?
