Bella, welcome back!

Couple of "Bella" posts from about a year ago to refresh memories:

OMG!!! My college roommate lives in Brenham and her fiance had a HUGE python. I was always afraid it would eat my cat if it escaped, which it did once...

Coincidence?

Tina, what hospital do you work at? Remind me not to go there, since the staff spends all it's time on the Dave Barry blog... :-)

BigD, was Fabio anywhere around that goose?

Why will the sweedish hunter be wearing a helmet during moose season? Does he expect to shoot them out of trees?

Thanks all for the welcome back!

Ok...I had posted the playlist. It was infact a simulpost with Bella at 1:13pm. I saw it there. I kibbied and it was gone.

Of course now it will probably show up again.

Off to get lunch.

Maybe I'll wait. It's raining.

Glad I didn't ride the bike today.

I knew it would show up.

*zips in*

Hooray for the goose!!!! Way to go!

Hi bella, I'm Eleanor in su.so.ca., where it's going to be over 85F today! I didn't come to the MOAT until mid-November 2004 so you may have been gone by then, but you're certainly invited to my one-year MOAT anniversary party that I'm planning!

*zips out to do laundry - yuk!*

Since there are people out there who love to do lists about the country's "Worst" or "Best" cities, fitness clubs, etc.....I am proposing they do a list of companies with the WORST voice mail menus.

Sam's Club would have to be in the top ten.

You'll have to excuse me now as I need to go find something to help me dig my phone out of the wall.

I believe that our "cold" front is coming in to south Texas here, but when I went to lunch the thermometer in my truck said it was a nice, chilly, 91 degrees. Which, I suppose, IS cooler than the 98 we had yesterday...

My addition to WORST voice mail menu: Any kind of City Public Service where you have to wait for an hour before speaking to someone listening to the recording telling you how important you are.

Bella, welcome back (though as a geezer I've forgotten your previous appearance, so don't mind me.

In NY they've instituted a "call 311" system where in a non-emergency situation you dial 311 NO MATTER WHAT the situation is, from potholes to car alarms to ...whatever. The main problem is, they have to transfer you an average of 6 times per call and even then you don't always get the right office.

Last week we were in a Dunkin Donuts having iced coffee when we saw a huge suitcase lying in the middle of the street (a major avenue). A passing mailman lugged it (it looked very heavy) to the sidewalk and left it. We figured it had fallen off a passing car roof or some such, but in this day & age you're supposed to be vigilant, right?

Jackie called 311 and explained herself a couple of times, after which someone decided maybe it was an emergency and switched her to 911. She assured them it was probably harmless but we were glad they were going to send someone to investigate.

I assume they did as it was gone later...unless some oppotunistic thief stole it.

My sister was bitten by a moose once.

I just ate Moosemunch™

*realized his ™-thingie was missing*

Worst voicemail menus are the new "intelligent" menus "Speak clearly and I can understand what you're saying. Would you like A B C or D?" "You said B" "Would you like B1 B2 B3 .... or B87?" I want to slap someone silly for recording this CRAP! I never thought I'd say it, but give me voicemail where I can press buttons, for crying out loud! I don't want to talk to a computer, I want to talk to a person, and you're not fooling me!!

Jeff.. Tom & Nic were together for just over 10 years. In all that time, they never managed to get pregnant on their own. Then the marriage breaks up and he's accusing her of infidelity and she miscarries. I can understand Crazy Cruise not believing it was his. Made him look like a piece of smelly brown stuff (no DigiSmell please!) when the medical reports came out, though.

Hi Bella.. welcome back!

BTW.. The Miami Herald is reporting the Nick and Jess's marriage is over.. after a bit less than three years (it's subscription, so I won't link it..). Apparently, while reporting on college games in the midwest, Nick was playing kissyface with a 19yo in his motel room. She passed a lie detector test before anyone would report it.. but this quote from her just makes me want to hurt her..
I do consider what happened cheating -- you always hear that Nick and Jessica are not together, but pursuing another woman while you're married is cheating. And I felt guilty kissing him. I wouldn't want my husband kissing other women. I feel badly [sic] if Jessica is in the dark -- but I don't think she is.
If she felt guilty, then WTH was she doing in the motel room? If she considers kissing someone else while you're married cheating, then what does that make her?

Capital One. Terrible.

Ciao, Bella!

Sorry Kibby. I borrowed it for my Moosemunch, and forgot to put it back when I was done. You may punish me as you see fit.
*hangs head in shame*

The best on hold system I've encountered had a voice telling me how long it would be, but I could leave my name and number and they would call me back. They promised I wouldn't lose my place in line. When the on hold wait time was 45 minutes I tried it. It worked and I didn't have to stay tethered to the phone.

what does she thinkthat makes her?

I'm too something-or-other (I'm so far gone, I can't even fincorrect send a word for it!) that I can't even manage a sentence that conveys my thoughts clearly. I had to type that last one about three or four different ways until it looked correct.

I think the word I was looking for is bumfoozled.
Or possibly fog-brained.

/moose rant

Wolfie.. what # did you leave as a callbacck number? 555 HOWL?

Oh.. and having seen my second-to-last post, I rest my case.

What's the alcohol content in Everclear anyway? It looks like water, so it can't be too high.

*begs Lt. Woman for some Everclear*

Kat ~ 1-800-SPANKME.
Maybe that's why they called me back.

Welcome back bella

How about them Halo's?! Should be an interesting series in NY. And Jeff while you have to suffer the game starting at 10pm we have to suffer them starting at 3 in the afternoon. It was a normal time for a game here.

*goes off to lick whipped cream out of weasel's pants*

I need help MOATies.... I can not stop looking up sites related to that Scientology thing, as well as Dianetics. I've spent the entire day doing that to enhance my productivity, HELP ME!!!!!!!

Don't do it DDi! They've probably got subliminal messages in their websites to get you to read more. Not only that... ooooh, I have a scientist in my pants...

Continuing what sounds like a pickup line.. I have a scientist in my pants... He'd like to perform some expiriments on you. Want to come back to my lab?

...reporting on college games in the midwest, Nick was playing kissyface with a 19yo in his motel room......and Meghan knows the girl.

Meghan told me this last fall when it happened and I was busting at the seams to tell....but decided I'd keep my mouth shut, in the event the girl was just blowing smoke.

3:00; Cards/Padres game is starting.

Mad; how did you like that 10:00 am baseball game the other day? Baseball and Brunch.

Jeff asked about the Tues; Thursday schedule earlier. That's because the network folk think of us as the redheaded stepchildren of baseball. They would be quite happy if they didn't have to schedule in our games. It's like "OK, the Yankees play here, and the Sox here and the Braves here." "When do the Cardinals play?" "Oh, damn. Are they in it again? Well, find a day time that works and shove them in there."

I don't want to talk to a computer, I want to talk to a person, and you're not fooling me!!

Kaf, you are so right! We get those all the time. The phone rings and you say hello.

"Hello, this is former mayor Ed Koch." No it isn't, it's a recording and I have no intention of listening to what it says.

The only exception: we get computerized calls from the library when a book we've reserved is ready to be picked up, and also get a computerized notice when our prescriptions are being sent out by the mail service the insurance makes us use. I don't mind those calls.

but this quote from her just makes me want to hurt her..

I agree. I'll hold her, you hit her. What a bitch!

I do consider what happened cheating -- you always hear that Nick and Jessica are not together, but pursuing another woman while you're married is cheating. And I felt guilty kissing him.

Then why'd you do it, slut? Devil make you?

What's the alcohol content in Everclear anyway?

Isn't it about 200 proof?

I need help MOATies.... I can not stop looking up sites related to that Scientology thing, as well as Dianetics. I've spent the entire day doing that to enhance my productivity, HELP ME!!!!!!!

Di, when we were on Broadway with Wurm & Bismuth the freaks had two tables set up and were giving free "help" to foolish passersby. Stay away!!

Boy, Sly, Meghan knows everybody - Naked Cowboy, Vince Vaughn, Nick Lachey's slutty kissyface.


Why is it when I try and close the stupid italics they won't close???

Close!

Bueller?

She doesn't KNOW Vince Vaughn....just shared a street corner with him and 100 other people. As it turns out, he was in Nashville taping something for cable about comedy and country western stuff. He's in Louisville this week taping for it. (or was last weekend.)

She worked with someone at summer camp who grew up with the Naked Cowboy.

I can't remember how she knows the gal who played kissy face with Nickie Boy. I remember her being pissed about it 'cause the girl was basically saying oooo, I feel so guilty...ooh, but I liked it...oooh, but..... blah! I don't think the gal goes to school with her. It may be someone her roommate grew up with. I had figured she was making it up. Guess not.

ergggggggggggggg

Leans with all her might on the right side of the moat and gives it a BIG shove LEFT!

It worked.

But I think I pulled something.

*looks down and notices left pant leg a little longer than his right one*

yes, SLY, yes you did.

And I thank you. ;)

(I will start clearing out the basement more often for that.)

Wow.. Everclear looked like water.. didn't taste like much of nothing.. who thought it could do that..

Jeff between Harriet Miers and the You Knit What? link on her blog.. I haven't done anything since but read blogs since my last post here. I should be ashamed of myself.. but YKW is so scary that it's brilliant. And the comment that go with it (Yellow for Caution) are hilarious! So I am not ashamed.

Sly.. please tell Meghan to find this girl (her name was published in the reports, but I didn't mention it here..) and slap her for me. Even if it can't be me that does it, to know that someone else did will make me feel soooooo much better.

For Sue Grafton fans.. according to my email alerts "S is for Silence" is due out on Dec 6!! *going to library website to prebook now...*

Just talked to Meghan. The girl DOES go to the same university; but Meghan DOESN'T know her. She had heard the story from her roommate last year, who knows the girl.

Kibby, I apparently pulled the wrong thing if your pants leg is all that's longer.

*zips in*

I'm very cranky, so I won't stay but I just wanted everyone to know.

Thank you for listening.

*zips out*

I'm unhappy my partner's cranky.

*tries to think of something to cheer her up*

think

think

think

*whispers* Cards are beating the Padres; 4-0, top of the 5th. They walked in one of those runs. That may be why she's cranky.

*tippy toes out*

*zips back in*

Kaf, the link made me smile - thank you.
Almost heaven, West Vagina...

kibby, don't waste your thinking, but that's nice. And sweet.

sly, I'm so cranky I want the Padres to lose - gasp! Did I just say that? Yes.
Am I upset that your pitcher just hit one of the Padres in the foot with the ball? No.
How cranky are you, El?
I'm so cranky that I didn't answer the phone when CG called - so there.

Thanks to all MOATies who care. :)

*zips out to watch Padres lose*

*pssst* Lt. Woman, he's dead. That might not cheer her up

Dead?????? He's dead????

I thought he was just hanging out in Aspen writing songs - I've been waiting for his next album.....

*hides under KibEl desk and sobs loudly*

I stand corrected.

Kaf, glad you enjoyed the site(s).

It's not looking good for the weekend as far as baseball in NY goes. We have an 8-12-15" rainfall deficit in the area depending on where you live, but I don't think we need to make it all up in one weekend. As of now the forecast looks bad, especially Friday night into Saturday afternoon.

*loves El a packet of Krispies*

These are not Rice Krispies.. these are a toasted coconut cookie.. soooooo good.. a few of these and you'll feel better in no time. They are one of my few exceptions to my "If you can't spell it correctly, I refuse to buy it" list.

*tries to excuse the fact she just ate 4 Krispies because she couldn't stop thinking about them...*

ummmmmm...

Aside from blaming it on Laynie (who seems to be having a bad day already..) I've got nothing.

oh.. I've got it!

It's lunchtime.. they were an appetiser!!

Yes. That's why I did it. That and they're thin, so it doesn't seem like you're eating so much.

Jeff - I feel your pain. Erin and I wanted to go camping this weekend, before it got too cold.

Alas.

Camping. I miss it. It's great this time of year with just a touch of chill in the air.

Nick L. wanted a college girl?

Queen Tamara of the Georgians - protect us!

Cheers moment:
Norm: (talking about a fertility specialist) I don't trust this guy. He's got Vera sprinkling powdered rhinoceros horn on my cereal.
Coach: and does it make you feel virile, Norm?
Norm: No, but I do get the urge to charge a Jeep every now and then.

hmmmmmm. I'm watching Will & Grace. They are taking direct hits at TomKat tonight.

Started the show talking about the engagement. Grace said something about, "well, she (Katie) made her own twin bed and she can lie in it."

That's the problem with topical humor; it can trump you.

Kaf - I've been reading that knitting blog you linked to. It's fantastic. YARN PANTS! omg

**wanders in covered in dust and debris**

*waves to everybody and promises to catch up on Saturday*

I have been somewhat absent because we were having all of the doors and windows replaced in our duplex over the last few days... there is an extremely fine layer of dust on every f%$#ing thing in the house, even after the typical sweeping and mopping.

I have a funny feeling that the Mike & Mad Union is going to be a lot more stable than anything we've been forced to listen to in the press. I could really care less if Nick & Jessica break the tie, or if Paris and Paris call it quits... I wanna see a Weasel and a Scientist (not Scientologist) tie the knot!

{{{{hugs to everyone}}}}

*going back to scrubbing floors in French Maid's uniform*

{{{Tony}}} Welcome back!! *loves Tony a feather duster*
Could you finish off my place when you're done with yours, please?

*WARNING WARNING - not fit for the office (OIYDN..NTTAWWT)* BTW Tony.. does your French Maid costume look anything like this?

Trillian.. I get a lot of blog stuff linking around from other blogspot blogs. I was absolutely fascinated with that one, though. I still have two months of the archives to catch up on.. hopefully I can do that soon. Whoever said laughter is good for the soul must be thinking that my soul looks pretty darn fine right about now.

{{{Tony!!!}}}

*tickles him with the feather duster*

Jeff, are you and Jackie taking the subway these days? I'm watching Cooper Anderson reporting Live from Time Square.

Apparently, Mayor Blumberg took the subway home tonight. He must have a big house. (rimshOt!)

I believe I heard Cooper Anderson say "This is the wettest terror alert I've ever encountered."

OK, maybe he didn't say that.

Sly.. either that or a very large garage.

What's with Cooper Anderson Coooper? He seems to have a link missing somewhere.. which is great for whichever station he works for, because they'll say to him "Go stand in the field with that raging bull and give a statement about the state of your underpants" and he'd probably do it. "Jenny, I have on a pair of FOTL Y-fronts and they're white.. umm yellow.. ummm.. mostly brown, now." *video stops.. audio continues and you hear the sound of a scream, then a bull munching on designer clothing and its contents.*

Sidebar - What's with giving a child a name that's all surnames so he sounds like a firm of accountants)?

His name used to be Anderson Cooper; but standing out in hurricanes this year kind of got things jumbled up.

Speaking of New York subways....did I tell you guys about our first day in New York and we were looking for a place to get lunch and I said, "Hey there's a Sub---oh, never mind."

You don't suppose the terrorists are targeting sandwich shops, do you?

Cooper Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt is reporting from Times Square surrounded by a throng of people on their cell phones calling friends to watch them on TV.

Talk about terror.

better than him being surrounded by a thong of people

You never know. You can get bomb detonation devices built into cellphones these days. Not that I would know anything about that ..

Is thong the collective term for a group of people who should never wear them yet regularly turn up to the beach doing exactly that? Because Then Cooper Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt-Smythe XVI should be afraid. Very afraid.

Hey.. Good News!!

Wys is posting on NIACM Blog!! YAAAAAAAY!!

*goes off to play at Wys's .. and check out the ReMoat.*

I believe the collective term for PWSNWTYRTUTTBDET is a waddle

either that or an aneurysm

Simulpost!!!!!!!

Lt. Kaf (and others) will certainly enjoy this little comic.

*snork* Bis.. thanks!!
I like it a LOT!

Every time I'm somewhere else, I remember something that I wanted to say, then forget it by the time I get back here.. danged CRAFT.

*goes off to email cartoon link before she forgets*

This one is funny too!
Americans... If you were scared of/for your president, now you should be really scared.. He's on a mission from G*d.
FYI.. I'm reading this and my heart and mind are saying .. I have never seen anything anywhere that positively proves that G*d would order a country to go to war. I've seen plenty of countries claim that they're doing it on G*d's behalf, but until I see G*d Himself come down from Heaven and personally commanding it, I won't believe it. You can't take G*d and use him as a whipping boy for decisions you make. That's blasphemous at the very least.

Ooooo it's so quiet in here.


Too quiet in fact.


*gets scared*

*replaces wolfies scared with a apple fritter from the bakery*

Here hun, these are much tastier to snack on. ;)

G'morning MOATie's!

I haven't had a really good apple fritter in years. One that was filled with hunks of real apple. And lightly glazed, not drenched in sugar.
*drools just a little*

Much better. G'mornin DDi


*zips in*
I'm also bringing in a breakfast snack, which just happens to be the Yiddish Word of the Day. knish (keh-nish), large dumpling filled with potatoes, cheese, grains or meat.

Enjoy!
*zips out to get coffee*

There's a Jewish family owned bakery down the street from my office, and they have the absolute best apple fritters. Nice chunks of apples, just as you described... with a yummy light sugar glaze... served warm with a tall glass of apple cider or tea - MMmm Mmmm GOOD!

I just had an apple with peanut butter as my breakfast. Not quite as yummy.

BTW, any thoughts on additional uses for peanut butter? So far I've had it on the usual, celery, apples, bread/bagels... But, of course at this point, those bore me. I'll try any suggestion - unless of course its gross. ;)

Peanut butter and Miracle Drip sammich. Has to be Miracle Drip (not mayo). Peanut butter also makes an interesting body paint thinned with something to make it spreadable.

El!! I love tato knishes.

Is it obvious I forgot to eat before I left home today?

Kaf - I've been reading that knitting blog you linked to. It's fantastic. YARN PANTS! omg

Also heard from Rita that she loves the knitting site.

Apparently, Mayor Blumberg took the subway home tonight. He must have a big house. (rimshOt!)

Good one, Sly. There is a house for the Mayor on the classy Upper East Side - Gracie Mansion - but Bloomberg is staying in his own East Side townhouse (NTTAWWT). He does ride the subway (with his security detail, of course) down to City Hall every day. When Ed Koch was Mayor he stayed in his apartment in Greenwich Village.

As for the subway: mostly we've been taking the express bus when we go into the city. Jackie did take the subway home from downtown Brooklyn when she worked at a second friend's school on Monday. Unfortunately, she wasn't paying attention to what she was doing (or, psychologically, she was trying to avoid physical therapy for a little longer) and didn't realize she'd gone the wrong way until she reached City Hall and had to turn around and come back.

Despite the scares most New Yorkers are taking the subway as usual, and despite what we see on TV we've never seen cops searching bags. I guess it's only on certain stations.

Kaf, thanks. I love the "Automatic Flatterer."

Fer real wolfie? M.D & PB sammiches?

*looks at wolfie with a raised eyebrow*

You're (not Your) not trying to kill me are ya?

Oooh! El, I love tato knishes too. Shh, don't tell Tamara I like something with tators. I'll never live it down.

Di, peanut butter is good with eggs. Sometimes I'll have it on toast or bagel or English muffin and put a little scrambled eggs on top.

Apples are good with peanut butter too.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!

I'm going to strangle the newbie at my office. It's a head honcho, who was brought in to manage our client resources (=He is to pick up slack when we cant staff a job for our clients). He has approached me with a million and one questions which in the beginning I forgave, figuring he was new to our firm and would need some time to get used to what we do and who we are.

At this point, 5 weeks have passed since he's been here and someone at his level should NOT be asking me such STOOPUD things as he does. Not to mention the absolute ridiculous suggestions he has. I've worked my arse off trying to simplify scheduling and the partners involvement with it, and this banana is trying to suffocate my partners with even MORE paperwork than before I came on last year. I want to strangle him with a wet noodle! Wait. I can't do that. He IS a wet noodle.

I'm debating whether I should talk to my bossman about this guy, considering that he is in fact the one who decided to hire him... But at the same time, I can't work with STOOPUD! I simply CANT! I may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but hot diggity, I'm neon pink compared to this person.

*collapses into a heap*
*rolls under the hammock hoping to hide away her Friday*

Peanut butter and sweet pickle relish sandwich - yummy!

DDi -
Sounds to me like the Peter Principle is alive and well and at your office....:(

DDi ~ I think it's justifiable coworker-aside if you want to strangle him. And no I'm not trying to kill you. It's actually good, if a little plain in texture. You can add a layer of lettuce for crunch. Or sunflower seeds. It doesn't affect the taste, just gives it a bit of texture. But it has to be Miracle Drip. Mayo tastes nasty on that sammich.
Peanut butter n relish I'm not so sure about. Are you yanking our chains El?

Peanut butter mixed with Miracle Drip in about equal amounts as a dip for carrots is good.

It is 10:30...and I'm sensing a wild day. The class t-shirts are here...but who knows if the game will be played tonight? The coach called in earlier...they'll decide at noon today. Just cause from early yesterday morning til about 11pm, there was a slow steady rain with about 2 inches total falling...if it keeps up the field may be a total mess.

*gets back to finding songs for lunchtime* (got a few class requests already)

Good morning and Happy Friday MOATies!

Been a long and busy couple weeks. I just added the new Movie Quote of the Week to My Blog.

I also posted in reference to the movie so there is a comment area for it.

Also, today is P's and my 5th anniversary! Since I know she doesn't read the MOAT and she'll be getting her present tonight anyway, I'll let you in on the secret.

Since we've been married, I try to do traditional gifts with a twist. Example, our first anniversary was paper. So, I got up early and streamed crepe paper from the bedroom down to the dining room. I went out and got that day's newspaper. So, when P came down in the morning, there was the newspaper and I had made crepes for berakfast.

This year is wood. So, I bought a bamboo sushi set that has two sets of chopsticks, chopstick rests, sauce bowls, and a "geta". Which is basically a fancy way of saying, sushi serving tray. On my lunch break, I have to go out to the bookstore and pick up a book or two on sushi.

Tonight, I'm taking her out to dinner at a new sushi place in town.

Oh, and I've been trying to resize and edit/effect some of the more recently taken pictures. I'm hoping to have them up on the blog Saturday.

Susan, as a dip, that sounds kind of yummy. I like Miracle Drip, and I like peanut butter... as long as the carrots are fresh, I like those too. Oh, and BTW, check your email. ;)

wolfie No, I'm not jerking anyone's chain (unless it's for some "other" purpose *ha, ha* - It's a really good combination of taste AND texture - try it! But you have to really like sweet pickle relish, which I do, and I just the other day discovered it's also good on a cheddar cheese sandwich with honey mustard!

Brian B - you get the
Best Husband Award! Maybe if you'd been around when I was married to give my ex a few tips, he wouldn't be an ex *sigh*

I watched all the Donnie Darko clips, don't know how I missed this movie!

DDi- I recommend Peanut butter on nanners with a little wheat germ. Don't put your PB & nanners on bread though ick. I think on a previous moat there was the discussion of PB on rammen noodles. poor man version of satay sauce (yummmm). PBon toast. PB on a spoon. PB on chicken. PB on ice cream.

Tony - I certainly hope that Weasel and I have a longer/better marriage than most of those in hollywood. I would like to state now that if Weasel ever kisses Nick Lechea he better bring me pictures.

Thesis is coming along. I am taking the weekend off from writing because I have too many other things to do. Sunday Weasel and I are doing the walk for hope in the morning - thanks for all your support. Sunday night my boss gave me Green Day tickets!!! Nice graduation gift. Good thing for me he spoils his 11 year old. I'll report in on Monday. Have a good weekend moaties.

Example number 792 of how you people have corrupted me:

I just saw an advertisement on a website "Add some Roo to your Do" complete with a lavender kangaroo. Some hair product called "aussie".

*snork*

[back to heinzing]

oooh Simulpost with Deon my weekend keeps getting better

DDi i forgot the best PB use.
Raamen noodles, PB, chicken and a little coconut milk and curry powder.
Yummmmmmm

Dang it is only 8:30 here I can't fix that yet

How many anniversaries do I have to go thru with the flavor of the month before I get to something good like diamonds, platinum or stocks?

I may have to try the p'nut butter n Drip dip this weekend. I usually have condiments in the house, if no actual food.

oh bonus I just heard Jimmy eat world is playing Sunday with Green Day. I think I am more excited to see Jimmy eat world. I have been a fan for a long time. Yippeeeeeee

Wolfie,

Here's the Traditional Gift List.

I actually thought about buying some sort of stock and giving her the stock certificate for our first anniversary, but I didn't have a broker at that time.

Ooh, and I forgot about last year's (Fruit and Flowers). I was in New Orleans the week before our anniversary, and we were staying at the Hotel Monteleone. It's a block down from Bourbon St. and the road it's on housed a lot of the antique shops down there. I found a really nice pair of antique, flower shaped, some sort of metal, earrings with small diamond inlays. After I got home from New Orleans, I went and got a little kitchen storage jar decorative kind of thing that had apples and cherries and stuff on it and put the earrings in there.

Thanks for the award, El. Not sure I actually deserve it. I just happen to be good at picking out presents. Which is great, because P loves presents.

Almost forgot.. best use of peanut butter when you are doing holiday cooking stuff..if you ever choose to make 20lbs of chocolate gifts and start getting creative with all those melting tabs

2 tabs of unmelted milk chocolate and a scoop of peanut butter in between them. Itty bitty dessert sammich.

Leather (3rd)is good. Can I just stay at that one for a few years and skip over until I get to silk and lace? I'm not so sure I can hold out until 60 to get more diamonds. Methinks I had best get married soon if I want even half a shot at getting them.
