Limbo, limbo, limbo!

Silly whines, serious whines, we've got them all this week. With no further ado...

Limbo Dancing Awards
this week for kathy a. and Miranda. Good news, and right quick please, doctors!

Old Skool Awards – Extreme Edition are going out to liz (extreme lack of chocolately snacks) and esperanza (cooking events requiring extreme math).

Succinct Award for Sarah at ratatat for this densely-packed whine: "Passive aggression. Mother-daughters. Holidays." There's a novel in there, I'm sure.

Ewwwwww Awards to P_K (dog toenail dust up her nose) and amy (cat bark and partially-eaten cat bark). Ewwwwwwwww!

Thou Shalt Not Settle, Even if It's Unsettling Award to Redzils, who is turning her life upside down in an effort to meet her own needs, thank you very much! The pixies stand by you to lend whatever virtual help we can.

Anti-whine To Make a Mother Cry Award to Miranda, who is so distracted by her spouse's illness that she doesn't have time to dwell on the 12 year old's "Relationship." Oy!

People's Choice Awards this week include:
Elevated Risk of Mullet Award to Gary for giving us the phrase Reform Dessertitarian (nominated by kathy a. and Sue). I'm so happy to have found a tribe where I really belong.

Understatement of the Century Award to Diane for "Easter/passover - they can be a pain!" (nominated by Sue).

And finally . . .Congratulations to KLee, who continues to be the Pixie's star student! Our sympathy about the Perfect Storm in your gut.

Join us next week, when our triumphantly-returned traveling Pixie, kathy a., will play host.

Thanks, Madeleine.

I'm still up at this hour, worrying, because DH is traveling and hasn't contacted me to let me know he got there safely or replied to messages, after posting on FB this morning that plane was delayed due to mechanical problems.

P_K, I hope you've had some good news by now. Travel delays are maddening.

PK, also hoping you have some news.
