Happy 2009 Edition!

Cheers to a brand new 2009! Happy New Year to all, and may fortune, health, and good parking karma rain down upon all the Pixies!

Two of our members had fireplacing craptacular endings to that old year we just consigned to the dustbin of history. The How Many Shoes Must Drop? Award to Purple Kangaroo and Margalit. The Pixie Relief Squad sends hugs, pain relief, home repair specialists, housecleaners, clue sticks, veterinary services, computer magicians, and some peace and quiet already, by sled-dog if necessary.

Old Skool Award to Madeleine, for her classic, timeless "winter break by the numbers" whine. Runner up to Liz, who complains of crusty scrambled eggs and no cream cheese at the cafeteria.

Elevated Risk of Mullet Award to Amy, for her "in-lap anti-whine for 2008: a snuggly, smiley baby who i think just pooped."

Style Award to JenR, for her "haiku brought to you by the letter P (for projectile!)" on the subject of baby barf. Brava!

Sham-Wow Cultural Awareness Awards to Klee and Amy.

Party Dilemma Award to Amy, with thanks to all the Pixies who weighed in with similar tales and ideas.
Five's a Crowd Award to Esperanza, whose family insisted on sending four (4) escorts when she went to return a gift.

Scary Road Encounters Award to Klee.

Setting the Cluestick Posse out to find and educate Sue’s fireplacing insurance company.

Bite Guards and magic wands all around to the TMJ Club: PK, Liz, Klee, Margalit.

Thanks for playing! See you next week, when the fabulous Madeleine will host!

Marvelous awards -- and the good news is Snuggly Girl is almost better but now I've got teh Sinus Headache. Wheeee!

Happy new year to all, and to all a better year than the last one!

amy, I just caught your last whine update. I'm sorry you had to ride that roller coaster. I felt dizzy just reading along.

Goodness, Amy, what an update!

Hugs and Happy New Year all around to all the pixies.

Thanks to Kathy A. for hosting, and to everyone who offered suggestions for my jaw and my computer.

Today the pain is more focused in primarily one tooth, which gives me hope that having the recent filling adjusted (again) on that tooth might possibly help. Plus, the bite guard. Right now I'm wearing it at all times unless I'm eating.

Ooh, guess what, pixies? I just realized that I now have a lovely full-body rash, consisting of tiny blisters on my palms and a mesh of pinprick red dots on the rest of my body. I wonder which medication I'm allergic to?

My guess would be the codeine, since my sister is allergic to that and it's what I took most recently (I think last night and the night before were the first few times I've taken anything with codeine in it).

My daughter, the wicked witch of the East is going insane. She's screaming and yelling because she's mad at a friend and it's MY fault. Yeah 2009. It looks so much different than 2008. I'm going to put the covers over my head and pretend this isn't happening.
