This week's ceremony is brought to you by the letters S, for soup, and T, for tissue and tea. Complimentary hand sanitizer, naps, and pain relievers for all!
Andy heads the Dissatisfied Shoppers Club this week, with his whine about no pants for tall thin people; and he wins the coveted Elevated Risk of Mullet Award for this: "I wear pants until they disintegrate, which can be a little embarrassing if it happens in public." Honorable shopping angst mentions go to anyone dealing with bras, baby pants, shoes, swimsuits, and/or other items for which fit is elusive. Esperanza scores the Shopping Bonanza with a well-priced bra that fits!
The Big Pot of Yummy Award goes to Esperanza, for her Southwest Lentil Soup.
Sue wins the Polar Bear Award, for needing to wear the heavy coat at work, and not getting any of those fabulous snow days even though it is like 40 below.
KLee wins the College or Bust Award, with an impressive save -- getting that financial aid information in and making contact with a helpful official!
The Overbooked, Overtired Award goes to Miranda, who has a plateful. We are impressed that you're dedicating time to the youth group, too! And that you said no to the church dinner -- boundaries are good.
Also attending to the youth of the Pixie Nation, Queen of West Procrastination wins honors for Surviving the Parenting Buttinskies. Whatever works!
Liz, the Doorbell Queen, devoted her considerable talents to a candidate who WON, and was on Maddow! Woot!
Condolences to everyone who is sleep deprived, missing a loved one, losing a loved one, dealing with depression or other challenging conditions of a spouse or loved one, wishing for warmer weather, raking leaves, victimized by credit card scammers, attacked by unreasonable persons, forced against their will to have the theme song of some program burned into their cortex, searching frantically for inspiration or organization, or otherwise struggling with stuff.
Cluesticks to all deserving parties. First stop will be the parent who blamed the teacher for her kid's pee accident.
Apologies for what I missed. Here's to next week being smoother!
