I'm working late tonight, won't be home to hand out candy, so didn't get any.

I haven't touched any of the tons we have at work all week.

Would it be terrible to pick up a box of mini chocolate bars on the way home and have those for dinner with a bottle of wine & watch The Craft?

I feel like it's ok when kids do it, if they keep it all to one night!

Maybe not ~fabulous~ deals but Burlington Coat Factory (hit or miss or the fabulousness of the coats) and sales at Macy's?

Nordstrom has its huge half annual sale on Nov 6.

Hmmm. GMA's question this morning... Is a site that is devoted to taking selfies at funerals appropriate or inappropriate. I have to go with most of their correspondents and vote inappropriate on that one. Especially after hearing that taking a selfie with the deceased is a "thing".

Yes, in the 60's & 70's it was a common to take photos at funerals. Several people did not have a chance to see them, especially mothers with still born babies. They were not allowed and kept in the hospital for days after, but that was a different and respectful situation.

So, I ordered a sweater from a British company, which allowed me to choose a title beyond the usual Miss, Ms. Mrs., so I chose "Brigadier." Now they send me updates addressed to "Brigadier ----."

I am enjoying this very much.

(Also, "Brigadier" was the name of my first dog, though we called him Brigser.)

Oh Deenie that is just the awesomeness!


on a similar note.. I wrote down the name Fredweena on my nametag during one of the orientations at my job... the meeting facilitator to this day introduces me to people as Fredweena (he knew me, so he knew it was a fake name)

Another trick is to cut out a picture of a lady from the 60s or 70s with silly hair and cover your own image with it. I did that for a while at a temp job I hated, and also a "real" job I really, really hated.

(I'm trying really had to get a dish I created there officially put on the menu with my name on it! )

I have a bone to pick with the shift that worked last night. They did not leave a specific terminal up, which is the one that is never supposed to be shut down, and I just had to sort through 137 messages while keeping my fingers crossed that none of them needed an immediate reply when they came in last night. Idk why the acting shift supervisor will not sit at this station when the actual shift supervisor is out. It's not that hard, but she refuses and won't allow her other co worker to sit here. She has had all the training, and very well could. She just wants to annoy someone for 12 hours straight. She's rather gifted at it.

It's amazing how many hoecake recipes are out there. I am fonder of the original, more simple, versions with just cornmeal, boiling water and a pinch of salt that is left thick enough to form into a patty and fry in bacon grease, butter, oil or bake. Natives and original settlers were not turning the batter into a pancake consistency and doing them on a griddle. They were cooked on a fire (sometimes on your hoe blade), and could be carried with you on long trips. Some of the variations are great, though I still can't do sugar in my cornmeal/bread. I like the variations done with regular flour/thinner biscuit dough as well. My grandmaw used to do that in the oven. Yum! Sometimes that is all people had, and throwing flour and a splash of binder into your leftover (mashed up) pinto's for bean cakes or using left over mashed potatoes for potato cakes is damn good too. All of it!! Except for whatever... That... was in The New Yorker a few months ago. I don't even want to know. Don't get too prissy with the hoecakes.

It's quickly turning into one of those afternoons that makes you wish you could slap someone through the phone. #1. There is not a need to explain to me how a privately maintained road works. I live on the top of a mountain, on some property that's probably nicer than yours, that has been in my family for 100 years, so lets not act uppity because you paid millions for your "track". #2. I also know how no trespassing postings work. Ever single one of the people who live on your road would have to have their property posted. Just because you do doesn't mean someone else does. I don't care if you voted on it. Voting and doing are 2 different things. #3. If you are so paranoid when reporting seeing men dressed in hunting gear, a few miles up the road, that you won't give your name because you are afraid of "hunters revenge", you need to see a professional. #4. It is still hunting season. Quit telling I am wrong about that too. #5. Go back to West Palm Beach. Now.
