    Happy Friday, everyone!! One of my weekend plans is to finally watch "Catching Fire", coming out On Demand today. I missed my chance when it was in the theatres due to Dad's stuff, so I've been waiting for it to be on. Truth tells me to pay special attention to the elevator spoilers please.

    Have a great weekend!

      • Mary Shannon

        I guess I'm just musical today, when I read your comment the first thing that popped into my mind was the song by Alabama called "Roll On 18 Wheeler".

    Just pokin' my head in to see wassup. Still have a cold. Thanks for the well wishes & tips. Chicken wings & a hot, steamy shower worked pretty well, too. Gonna rest up this weekend. March is going to be a busy month. Whips & hugs to all!

        I'll raise you a Buffett tune, can't add it here via my cell, but its called something like "smart woman in a real short skirt".

        March 6, 2014 at 10:55 am |

          How are you holding up?

      Continue to feel better! Try hot and sour soup if you can... it always helps me when I have a cold.

    • AleeD®

      Thankee kahndlee for the well wishes and songs from the heart. If it weren't for the nasty storm and matching tornado watch (love Florida's weather), I might have gone out for some hot & sour soup at lunch today. Instead, I'll just stay in and sneeze on people. ;)

      Had a weird experience last nite. Took Musinex-D before I went to bed. Tossed & turned all nite. Had dreams that giant squirrels were trying to get into my house. Any dream analysts out there?

        Do you have giant nuts in your house they might want? 😁
        Feel better soon!

      • Dr. Sigmund Fraud@AleeD

        The squirrels represent your desires and your home represents, your uhm, shall we say, more personal areas.

        March 6, 2014 at 3:48 pm |
      • AleeD® @ TNT & Dr. Fraud

        So y'all think they're looking for nuts in my nether regions? Freaky.

        March 7, 2014 at 7:39 am |
        • TNT

          No, no, no. Just your house.
          (I'm not that freaky. Lol!)
          Feeling better?

          Awe sorry, no fun being sick. Get lots of rest & no more dreaming about giant squirrels. Dream about giant fill in the blank.😄

      Finally drying out here in southern Calif. Finally. We had such a HUGE puddle in our backyard we named it Lake Duncan. Adobe dirt I guess.

    Good morning! I just went to get the furries out of boarding and boy are they happy....and exhausted. Should be quiet around here today.

    What's new in the rest of the world?

    March 5, 2014 at 11:26 am |
    • RC

      Just rain here-shocking. Glad to hear you're feeling well and have your furries back.

      It's warm enough to snow here... and I wish I had a teleporter so I can strangle a certain foreign head of state who's thrown a country and culture that I love back 50 years.

      Frank Underwood is about to take Mother Nature to task if DC get any more snow or cold temps. Gotta say it was an awesome snow day yesterday sledding with Lil Biddle.

          Double Down on a hot Toddy heavily laced with bourbon.

      It's bright and sunny out, so I want to take a walk. But it's 16*F out with a slight wind, so I'm doubting that this is a good plan.

    Anyone remember angrybabykitty? Didn't know she had a tumor, I guess. "3 months tumor free" she posted on Facebook.

    March 3, 2014 at 2:23 pm |

      I saw that on FB too. Maybe that's why she dropped off here.

        I want to say Mary Ann's Place, but I think it's wrong.

        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

          A lot of their song titles are girls names. I had to look up who Lola was.

          I think it was "Lonesome Rider"...something like that. Too much on the brain, I guess. Lol!

          Doing pretty well, thanks. Working about 1/2 time this week to keep recovering, hopefully next week I'll be 100%. Feel better!

      We missed it entirely in our neck of Connecticut.

      (No one pities you when you spend hours shoveling phantom snow...) ;)

    Good morning! Wake up....if I'm up you have no excuse!! :-)

    No snow here, and miracle of miracles, no snow showing in the 10 day forecast either, wow!! I'm doing a little bit of work today, first day back but still not at 100%. Lucky I work from home.

    Have a good week, everyone!
