Award Buffet

Thanks for sharing your favorites!  Please help yourselves to the selections, which include but are not limited to:  fresh homemade bread!;  gluten-free deliciousness;  cabbage and dumplings;  Indian food w/o cream; onion and garlic free choices;  noodles and sour cream, noodles and sauce; mac & cheese;  veal;  fried chicken; seafood; and a variety of desserts.  Mmmm.

Esperanza wins the Fabulous Babysitter Award; may she have reliable friends when things get busy in the fall.

Queen of West Procrastination wins the Quiet Day at Home Award, well deserved after things have been so busy busy busy.

Neighbor Lady wins the Good Humor Award, for " 'OH, comfort food....' but is slightly less dramatic with a typo. Kind of like slamming the door and getting your skirt caught in it!"

Andy wins the Vacation Bible School Obstacle Course Award, for a game that devolves into drag your partner in a loving way to the finish.  Can't quite place the biblical reference for that one...  ;)

The coveted Elevated Risk of Mullet Award goes to KLee for "so the snowball of suck rolls merrily onward."

Queen of West Procrastination offers a fine addition to the lexicon, "clusterfireplace." 

Everybody has a Suspicious Mind this week.  ;)

The Posse is delivering cluesticks to:  people who steal mail;  people who forget that it's not gracious if your guest has nothing to eat; people who kinda pack boxes and run out of steam, devoting the days to netflix on the ex's couch; administrators who decide more work for the same pay is a good thing;  reply-all violators; people who audition without checking the performance dates; and other deserving parties.

Probably forgetting a few things.  Hope you have a good weekend!

Bonus whining: The estimate for that little fender-bender is $2300! $1000 deductible. Ugh. I swear this is minor, no major structural damage.

Yikes! That's some fender-bender!

Update: Stepford mom replied to my email. She was okay with my suggestion that I bring along a grilled chicken breast for myself and a green salad to share. (See what I did there? Combination NL/kathy plan!)

So, at least I'll have that to eat. She added the question "How do you eat without garlic and onion?!"

Glad that worked out, Sue!

Liz said...

Yay!! And I admit I wondered that myself

It must be nearly impossible to eat out!
Glad it all worked out!

It's these newfangled bumpers -- can't just hammer the the whoopsies out. (This car is 8 years old, so newfangled is relative). And it clipped a couple other parts.

I personally adore onion and garlic, but it's not hard to leave them out of dishes. Gluten also is on my favorites list, but you can do plenty with other starches and flours.

Thanks for the award -- I needed a spot of brightness! The snowball of suck has reached Titanic proportions here in Casa de KlLee. Thanks for making me smile.
