A friend of mine is having a heart catheterization done today. She'd kill me if I mentioned her name, so please just send out general good vibes for her.
My ear is back to normal size and consistency, but it itches like crazy and I have what appears to be a monstrously swollen lymph node beneath it. I lost two pounds over the weekend, but I do believe I must have put it back on yesterday. I was starving and ate pretty much everything in sight.
The siding crew is still laboring away at my house. I don't know why it's taking so long. One of the guys got fired, too (probably for laying out every Monday), which won't speed things up any. The guttering guys came yesterday and finished up in just a few hours. At this rate, I don't know if my house will be back to normal by Thanksgiving. That makes it a bit difficult to make plans.
I saw this "quote" somewhere yesterday and rather enjoyed it:
Some people are like Slinkies...
Not really good for anything,
But they still bring a smile to your face
When you push them down a flight of stairs.
Kind of reminds me of the client we fired today. We knew she was trouble the moment she walked through the door. Now she can go become somebody else's problem. Good riddance!
The Words Gone Wild we're going to play with today before handing them over to TWISTED LINGUISTICS for execution all come from that self-appointed "editor" person.
celebritys - Praising bright lights.
knit-picker - A shopper who consistently selects only the most unstylish clothes off the racks.
comraderie - Russian bonding ritual.
back peddle - Selling contraband out of dark back alleys.
conjoled - Talking the warden into a conjugal visit.
upheavel - Puking.
goulish - Stuff that's sort of like goulash, but not, which makes it kind of spooky.
|You Should Be a Politician|
Confident, assertive, and dedicated - you know what you want in life and how to get it.
Stubborn and opinionated, you can stand your ground... even if it's unpopular.
And while you have strong views, you never overwhelm people with your opinions.
A true charmer, you subtly influence people into seeing things your way.
You do best when you:
- Work according to your own rules
- Can change the world with what you do
You would also be a good lawyer or talk show host.
