The Votes Are In!

The Pixie Nation has spoken, and it's a landslide!  LIZ for president!  Or at the very least, a cabinet position with robust cluestick authority.  That ought to solve some problems in D.C.

These suggestions thanks to Debangel, who wins the coveted Elevated Risk of Mullet Award for: We should at the very least have Liz in the Cabinet. I've met her, she's tiny- she'll fit ;-)

Neighbor Lady wins the respected Addition to the Lexicon Award for suggesting "drear" as a noun, with full endorsement of the Lexicon Caucus.

The Wonders of Geography Award goes to Miranda, who lives north of a piece of Canada and therefore feels free to adopt Canadian Thanksgiving, arriving as it does at a more sensible time for a harvest festivity.   Sue, representing Canada, welcomes her. 

Old Skool Awards go to Sarah, who keeps breaking glassware; Miranda, whose noble health objectives are being undermined by numerous parties;  and to Neighbor Lady, who has a code ib da nobe.  Classic whines! 

Amy wins the Excellence in Shopping Award, for steering Sarah in the direction of sturdy and environmentally friendly glassware.  (We are tempted to set her loose on the holiday gift list, should we ever get around to making one.)

Nominated by Sue, our Liz wins the Epic Whine of the Universe Award because her stoooopid job made her miss a rally with Michelle.   Runner-up is Elizabeth, who had to miss a Nats playoff game because, you guessed it, she had to work. 

Debangel, our newlywed, wins the Romantic Getaway Award!

The Swift Recovery Award goes to Esperanza's Sweet Baboo, who got right back in the swing of things after losing the giant cast and getting a more petite one.  Yay!

The Virtue is Its Own Punishment Award is won by Elizabeth, whose fitness run was rudely interrupted when she fell in a ditch and wrecked her knee. 

JenR wins The Curse of the Early Riser Award, reminding us all that when the waterpark does not open until 10 a.m., there are many hours of "Mom, I'm bored" in the hotel room. 
As always, this community pitched in generously with thoughts on various problems.  The Cluestick Posse is hereby dispatched to deliver messages to misbehaving ex-husbands and other deserving parties.  Here's hoping some things calm down.  :)

See you next week, when Esperanza will be the master of ceremonies!

Woohoo!! I love me some Mullet ;-)

I think "Chief of Cluestick Cabinet" has a nice ring to it ;)

Outstanding awards! And thank you kindly for the shopping award! I assure you, I am not that efficient when the important holidays arrive. ;o)

I think they should replace everybody in the cabinet (except Hillary, of course) with Pixies.

kathleen could be a stronger cabinet member, with pixies behind her. in my opinion.
