Rise and shine, class is in session. Homework on the blackboard, apples on my desk.
Oh my. What’s Eric Holder done now?
Ha, ha. A+++
Will be getting my final crown this morning. YEAH!
Good luck. It’s -1 here. A+++
In Sochi, the venue doth coruscate
But Russia is still such a horror state
In building the venue
Much graft on the menu
Corruption has led to a “Boris-gate”
The snow storm delayed delivery of my crown and they just called to cancel. Dang blasted winter snowstorms....that white stuff is a pain in the @$$.
Yellow water that you cannot bathe in because it burns your skin? Electric ground to bathtub fixtures? OMGosh. They aren’t incompetent, they are evil. A+++
That is the most star-crossed tooth on the planet!
The ice and the blades just coruscate the dance move. Did you mean to use the word?
I thought I did!
I KNOW. I was in the shower when the call came in, I have to calm down a bit before calling them back to reschedule. Perhaps they will get it in the mail today and call ME back. I haven’t even spoken of the crown for fear of jinxing it.
That didn’t work out so well.
We just made dinner reservations at Turning Stone for Saturday May 10, which is grad weekend. There are 9 restaurants, only 4 appear to take reservations and two of the four were completely sold out. We wanted 7 pm but the only available time at the steakhouse was 5:15. Peach Blossom had 7 pm but luckily I scrolled down to see its Asian/Thai so that’s a no go. The guys will golf and we will explore the Destiny mall. I think I mentioned that a friend whose daughter graduated UVA last yr told me that you literally have to make lodging reservations a year out from graduation. We did and nabbed the last available rooms at the Hampton inn. Turning Stone, the Sheraton etc were all sold out. SU is not a huge factory school, not even as big as Pitt, but there just aren’t that many places to stay I guess. Thank God for my friend bc if you were hapless and tried calling the month or so before grad you are gonna be sol.
It’s out here. Quite beautiful with all the iced over trees and stuff coruscating in the sunshine.
While I’m sure its possible to get a room in pittsburgh closer to graduation, xshub told one of his employees about it and her daughter is at Pitt and graduating this year. She called that same day last May and was shut out of Oakland.
I know, I might’ve gotten a bit hysterical if I were you and getting that call.
My mother had no seving pieces because she preferred silver plate (which was stolen in the burglary by meth heads). I prefer china anyway because it keeps the food warm longer.
I'm awaiting the delivery of this one too that I bought outright, without participating in an auction.
I think I'll have to cook a special Valentine's Day dinner and serve it on these dishes.
I couldn’t plan ANYTHING a year in advance.
Very pretty and that’s a great idea!
You would if the alternative is ending up in some fleabag in upstate NY!!
All my other dishes are blue & white, so it will be a nice change to use my mother’s Spode.
Happy anniversary, weren’t you both so cute. Our dining room table has tax stuff all over it too.
The groomer just arrived to haul Jules down to his mobile grooming van. Channy is cowering in her room fearful that she’s next. She doesn’t know that I’ll never have her groomed again bc I don’t want to tax her poor heart.
A lot of us are pretty happy around Milwaukee because the Lipinski Stradivarius was recovered intact yesterday.
Don’t want to tell ya how to teach; but you did miss a chance to say “Rise & Coruscate...”
This Olympics it's Russia's Anna Sidorova:
My Canadian friends tell me the best thing about curling is you can do it while holding your beer.
Is she pretty shaggy now? Whenever Oliver falls asleep next to me on the couch, that is prime scissor time for me to clip him where he needs it.
We’ll take your word for it since the link isn’t working right now. That is good news. I’m unhappy that my youngest doesn’t want to participate in her music school recital. They are all playing Ashokan Farewell and it will need some good violin participation. We were all playing it together the other night and my fingertips are still numb. Need new calluses. Or should that be callusi?
Apparently, I am a chatterbox.
Destiny Mall is three stories of shopping....the new end was still not full last time I was there. If it wasn’t graduation weekend I would come up and meet you for lunch. Last time I stayed at the Syracuse Hotel it had just been redone and was nice. It’s was old fashioned and classy at the time. Can’t speak for it today. That was more than 10 years ago.
the only place she’s shaggy is her leg fringe. He doesn’t really clip anything else off of them. they are hairy beasts. we brush her and have bathed her in the utility tub, and they’ve clipped her nails for me at the vet.
Very nice. A+++
Your wedding anniversary is on the anniversary of my father’s death. (sigh)
Nope, left it for you. A+++
xshub said the mall is quite nice. we had not been since xsboy’s freshman year, and it was not very impressive, but he was there that weekend in Oct where he had the 2 traumatic car experiences in 2 hours, the rear-ending and the railroad spike through the windshield. He said it’s quite impressive now. Hard to imagine besides the canadians coming to shop, how that place stays in business with the high end stores. Not enough people with $ in upstate nY to float that!
i hate you.
this wedding shower drama has my stomach in knots. Emails are continuing to fly. Out of town cousins v. local cousin and friends. No way that we need to have this going on. I’m ready to resign as MOB!
Just tell everyone the bride wants a toned down event. They should be happy to comply.
You don’t normally see them curling in their underwear.
Nor would you want to.
