I'm sorry this is so tardy, folks. I've had a feverish kid wallpapered to me.
First and foremost, happy birthday Sue! May your fiftieth year be a sweet one. And may I congratulate you on your bravery in getting another tattoo to commemorate the occasion? And, while I'm at it, here is your gold medal for the funeral triathalon (ht Kathy A)
Sarah at Ratatat wins the Style award for "my allergies are draining the life out of me. And like a bad horror movie, I am afraid it is coming from inside the house."
Kathy A. wins the office-space frontierswoman (ht amy) award for "i'm losing the battle of desk territory with senior cat. a couple days ago, i was gaining ground when i discovered she doesn't like post-its stuck to her. but she has conquered that obstruction to her divine right to sit on my work. also, my office floor looks like the aftermath of a confetti convention."
Sue wins Elevated Risk of Mullet for "Our yoga instructor is expecting also and she keeps leaving us in impossible poses for a VERY long time while she delicately exits to do Teh Puke."
Esperanza wins the Old Skool award for her baboo's whine "An Old Skool whine on behalf of the Baboo: I inherited my da-da's butt. It is flat. These cute capris are sliding off my butt and taking my diaper with them." My coffee met my keyboard, I must admit.
Madeleine gets a Mystery of the Week award for her Case of the Vanishing Dufflebag. I'm guessing it went home with someone else.
Elizabeth wins the No Vacations From Presentations award. Seven within three weeks! Yipes!
Name Under Development wins the I Was Promised Moving Fairies award. I do hope that they arrive quickly.
The Cluestick Posse is being sent out to whale on amy's mom. I'm just gonna say that I saw red when I saw what she wrote to amy, and when I see red, the cluestick comes out swinging. Amy, MM also had an accident (or three) while watching PTwBitBBH. And can I recommend spinach noodles with pesto sauce mixed with Gerber creamed spinach for Tater's gustatory enjoyment?
Madeleine wins the Remembering What It's All About award, for the squashage.
KLee slid in under the wire to win the Bringing The Bodily Fluids award. I'm so sorry about your migraines, I truly hope you feel better, and that these particular priceless memories will fade.
Sue, I think a Finding Nemo sermon would be fun to listen to. Perhaps this year, you can use Up instead?
And that's all I have today, folks. Tune in next week when your host will be Kathy A!
