Hokey Pokey Awards
Why not dance?
By acclamation, this week's Old Skool Award goes to Liz, for zits. Classic whine!
Miranda wins the coveted Elevated Risk of Mullet Award, for her seasonal anti-whine: "Oh, and we made it through Seder at Relative's House without anyone passed out or high or fighting plus all the food was delicious." Yay!
Esperanza is Runner Up for Mullet, with: "W: Oh my chinny chin chin (Sweet's newest exclamation), could Holy Week please be over soon" Love that Sweet-ism!
The Plague of Consumerism Award goes to Sue, with a classic seasonal rant: "I totally agree about the candy. What really gets me are the tv commercials asking if everyone is ready for Easter - then they try to sell you shoes. . . . Also, they completely ignore the fact that bunny or no bunny - LOTS of people don't celebrate Easter. Why aren't they selling Passover shoes???? It seems to me that crass consumerism about religious high holidays should at least be inclusive."
JenR wins the Parental Endurance Marathon Award, for surviving the week of the very sick toddler. Glad the babe is feeling better!
Cluesticks to Liz's insurance company, and any other insurance company that could use some clues. Many thanks for the offers to cluestick persons related to this week's adventure in my family.
Congratulations to Sue, on her acceptance to a writer's workshop; and to Miranda, on a big work-related victory and good stuff with all her kids. Hugs to everybody in need.
See ya next week!
ETA: Wednesday Book Club is still open, for discussion of Beekeeper's Apprentice! The selection came up during a busy busy time, but this is a great book, and at least a couple of readers meant to chime in! The next book selection is 4/10/13 -- Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Cheryl Strayed, to be hosted by Sue.
