That's one nice photo of Inara and Mal. :)
Hope your head is better soonish, Scribe.

Yes, the air is breathable. It's not so bad out here in the 'burbs as in the city. And it's clearing quite nicely. The wind is blowing it elsewhere. I did hear of a tale of someone taking their white haired terrier for a walk this morning and it came back reddish... :roll: not sure if that's true. :P I do remember walking in the Grand Canyon with white Nike's and coming back with pink ones. Never did get that dust out.

Rowan, have fun dancing.

Calma, have the parts arrived yet?

Tyg: I'd be clearing the kitties out and setting off bug bombs. :shock:

Or just not living there. :)

nl: clicked on the Drudge Report this morning and a piccie of the dust storm was the first thing that came up. Hope y'all get cleared out soon!

Woah, nl, those pictures look like landscapes from Mars. :shock:

Hmm, Bag End Cellars. That sounds just like something to visit on the way to MoME. :D

I won't be around later this evening, there's the info for parents at the younger kid's school. And, I just remembered that I'll have something tomorrow evening as well, not as late and as long though.

MoME 2013 results are in!

The Sons of Fëanor re-embodied in the beginning of the Fourth Age? Yes, for The Maedhros and Tygarya Saga – and, as fire-hearted as ever!

I am down for a trip to Bag End Cellars, if they have a nice pinot... or a Geewhiztraminner :D

It SNOWED Monday! SNOW! Not enough to stick but enough to remind me it's fall in Colorado. Rained all day yesterday and the weather men promised 4 - 10 inches of snow for our morning commute. I confess, I just wasn't ready for that... so it's with HUGE relief that I say HA! the weather men are WRONG!

It does remind me that I need to see about picking up some ski boots VERY soon. I'm going to buy my boots this year and spend the winter demoing various brands and types of skis till I find a good fit. Golf in the summer, ski in the winter. Losing weight has ALL kinds of advantages!

Lemme see.... the folks at Starbucks gave me a free latte today because the customer before me ordered one when he meant a black coffee (how do you get that confused?) and it was already made when he pointed out the mistake. I don't drink lattees anymore because I can't afford the calories but one of my coworkers was the beneficiary :D My Venti Double Shot in the Dark was fab too.

I'm basically determined to burn through what's left of my stomach lining, I think.

NL those pics are scarey! I'm the sort of person who would have had her windows open during something like that and now would have an entire houseful of dust. Bleugh!

I have to tell you that I think Inara is one of the yummiest creatures ever. Just.. plain... yummy.
Hey, look who I found lurking. She sure has kept up her figure!

sneaks in, slips the Hamsters some Jolt Cola and a few Power Bars then sneaks out again . . .

:D:D:D

PS: Inne, I have to agree (even though y'all know I ain't that kinda Scribe ;) ). Every time I watch the series or the movie I drool all over again over her clothes, etc. God was really on the mark the day He made Inara, yep. Lucky Mal. ;)

Calma, they did a story on the medals being returned this week. That was a wonderful thing Mr Campbell did. Stupid thieves! How dumb are they to steal Olympic medals. It's not as if they can do much with them.

It's no longer red here. Though they do say we may see more of these dust storms as it gets drier here. Need rain!!

Just heard from my supervisor...
The part is in and the repair will be there tomorrow between 8 and 830.
Too late for breakfast dishes but in time for lunch.

I won't have my helper tomorrow either. She's taking a class that pertains to the business. My supervisor is on vacay tomorrow and Friday, so it's just me and Midge tomorrow.
That's right, leave it at the feet of the old broads... :wink:

Hope all is well for the rest of ya loons...

Have a good evening/afternoon.

Old broads? HAH!! If only they knew how much better the wiser, more experienced women of the world are . . . oh wait, maybe they do . . . :D Someone once told me, a long time ago, that the better you are at a job, the more often some one will expect you to do it. Funny how that works out . .. ;)

nl, you're heading into Spring, aren't you? Hope you get some lovely spring showers.

Here, we're sweltering under record high temperatures. I mean, it's the end of September and the daytime high today was 34C. :shock: Yes! 34! And the weather channel says it won't cool down to the nightime low of 17 until after 1 am. How is a body supposed to sleep? In SEPTEMBER, no less. Crikey.

But truth be told, I'll take it. The longer of an Indian Summer we get, the shorter the winter will be. At least I hope so. ;)

Ack! Must go shut off the sprinkler. Since it's pitch dark already and the lawn should be well watered by now . . .

Yep, Spring has sprung. For a couple of weeks there, I thought we'd by-passed it and gone straight to summer. We really need rain or it's gonna be a bad bush fire season.

Old broads are the best!!! :D They know more about life!

slips in the spilled soda, knocks one of the coils out of alignment...

Opps, what did that one do again?

hehehe, you know what's mean fun? Putting folders out of day order (eg: sun, mon, tues) when you work with someone who is OCD.... :twisted:

Gooood morning TVM peoples.

Today is my Friday.. except that it's not. A conference call I very much need to attend got rescheduled from today to tomorrow so now I have to come in. IM'd the new project manager to whine (just a tad) about the scheduling change and his response was "Well.. the old manager XXX told me you don't work Mon - Thur either ;) "

Those southern boys.. sigh.

Today is Littlest Little Evil's Seventh Birthday. This is a TORC baby folks, and she's SEVEN! Can you believe it? I may have to dig around the basement and find her birth announcement thread.

I had to be at work at 6:00AM so I dragged her out of bed at the colon of the buttcrack of dawn before I left for the day to give her hugs and kisses and sing Happy Birthday. Did you know the schools don't do cupcakes anymore? Nope. Too much sugar. You may send fruit snacks or non-peanutty granola bar type snacks instead. She went with Hanna Montana fruit snacks. We don't even get cable and this kid's infected!

We're having a sleep over for three seven year old girls tomorrow night in celebration. I must brace myself!
Hey, look who I found lurking. She sure has kept up her figure!
