Somehow, men always tend to disappear when they hear the word "dishes"... :P

*checks all the closets*

Ah well, as long as the cooler is here, he'll be back. :D

:D tis true. We can hold the cooler hostage.




*ahem*


Every Who
Down in Who-ville
Liked Christmas a lot...
But the Grinch,
Who lived just North of Who-ville,
Did NOT!
The Grinch hated Christmas!
The whole Christmas season!

spd...what's all this talk of winterizing the cooler? Just wear a ski jacket.

Well it probably needs some big honking snow tires. And chains. And some blinking Christmas lights, or something. :D

What's this about dishes? Sorry, I was in my, um, library, reading:

Boy Howdy, it's a good thing I'm not a drinking woman or that cooler would be D---R---Y.

This morning I find out half of my residents are down with a stomach flu. Not good for the elderly, btw. So they need broth and jello and Cream of Wheat instead of Oatmeal. Ok, I can handle that. It's cool. I'm flexable enough to change over the menu. The rest of them can have the biscuits and gravy and all things will be hunky-dorey, right?

WRONG!!!

My dishwasher decides it's today that it wants to stop working.

:pull:

I had a boat load of dishes that I had to do by hand.
Thankfully, it was only half the normal plates, cups and flatware. but I also had the pots and pans.... Sheesh, it took me as long as it usually takes me with a full compliment of residents at breakfast to do them.
I wanted scream....
At lunch they brought me in paper plates and cups so it only took me 20 minutes to get them done.

The repair is going to cost $500 and the part won't be in until Friday.
I think I'm going to be ill....

So, how was your day?

I guess I don't feel so bad about the 2 hours I wasted in a boring teleconference today. :P

On the other hand, I think I would have preferred to do some dishes by hand. :roll:

------------
Nice library, spd. :P
---------------

Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be that his head wasn't screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were to tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

But,
Whatever the reason,
His heart or his shoes,
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Whos,
Staring down from his cave with a sour, Grinchy frown
At the warm lighted windows below in their town.
For he knew every Who down in Who-ville beneath
Was busy now, hanging a mistleoe wreath.

"And they're hanging their stockings!" he snarled with a sneer.
"Tomorrow is Christmas! It's practically here!"
Then he growled, with his grinch fingers nervously drumming,
"I MUST find a way to keep Christmas from coming!"
For, tomorrow, he knew...

...All the Who girls and boys
Would wake up bright and early. They'd rush for their toys!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
That's one thing he hated! The NOISE! NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!
Then the Whos, young and old, would sit down to a feast.
And they'd feast! And they'd feast!
And they'd FEAST! FEAST! FEAST! FEAST!
They would start on Who-pudding, and rare Who-roast-beast
Which was something the Grinch couldn't stand in the least!
And THEN.............

And THEN
They'd do something he liked least of all!
Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They'd stand hand-in-hand. And the Whos would start singing!

They'd sing! And they'd sing!
AND they'd SING! SING! SING! SING!
And the more the Grinch thought of the Who-Christmas-Sing
The more the Grinch thought, "I must stop this whole thing!
"Why for fifty-three years I've put up with it now!
I MUST stop Christmas from coming!
...But HOW?"

Then he got an idea!
An awful idea!
THE GRINCH
GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA! :shock:
"I know just what to do!" The Grinch Laughed in his throat.
And he made a quick Santy Claus hat and a coat.
And he chuckled, and clucked, "What a great Grinchy trick!
"With this coat and this hat, I'll look just like Saint Nick!"
"All I need is a reindeer..."
The Grinch looked around.
But since reindeer are scarce, there was none to be found.
Did that stop the old Grinch...?
No! The Grinch simply said,
"If I can't find a reindeer, I'll make one instead!"
So he called his dog Max. Then he took some red thread
And he tied a big horn on top of his head.
THEN..........

He loaded some bags
And some old empty sacks
On a ramshakle sleigh
And he hitched up old Max.

Then the Grinch said, "Giddyap!"
And the sleigh started down
Toward the homes where the Whos
Lay a-snooze in their town.

All their windows were dark. Quiet snow filled the air.
All the Whos were all dreaming sweet dreams without care
When he came to the first house in the square.
"This is stop number one," The old Grinchy Claus hissed
And he climbed to the roof, empty bags in his fist.

If it was colder this would be snow.

*ahem*

Then he slid down the chimney. A rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a moment or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Who stockings all hung in a row.
"These stockings," he grinned, "are the first things to go!"
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
Pop guns! And bicycles! Roller skates! Drums!
Checkerboards! Tricycles! Popcorn! And plums!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then the Grinch, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney!
Then he slunk to the icebox. He took the Whos' feast!
He took the Who-pudding! He took the roast beast!
He cleaned out that icebox as quick as a flash.
Why, that Grinch even took their last can of Who-hash!
Then he stuffed all the food up the chimney with glee.
"And NOW!" grinned the Grinch, "I will stuff up the tree!"

Tooks, have I told you lately what a great butt you have? 8) :P


I know very little Latin (mostly Church Latin), but when I saw the Latin editon of Grinch in a bookstore five or six years ago, I felt it was one of those things that fits in the "teh best thing eva" category, and I snatched it up. I even wrote a review of it for the newspaper I wrote for back then. Now that was a neat trick: reviewing a book written in a language I couldn't even read. :wink:

The Grinch is now fifty?
Still green and repentant?
He nearly wrecked Christmas
while Whos were complacent!
His heart, I am glad,
grew three sizes that day,
and he brought back the presents!
Let's shout Kalloo kallay!
Though dear Dr. Seuss
is not with us to cheer,
hooray for the Grinch,
and his fifitieth year!

Bright blessings,
Parm :)

And the Grinch grabbed the tree, and he started to shove
When he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.
He turned around fast, and he saw a small Who!
Little Cindy-Lou Who, who was not more than two.

The Grinch had been caught by this little Who daughter
Who'd got out of bed for a cup of cold water.
She stared at the Grinch and said, "Santy Claus, why,
"Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?"

But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
"Why, my sweet little tot," the fake Santy Claus lied,
"There's a light on this tree that won't light on one side.
"So I'm taking it home to my workshop, my dear.
"I'll fix it up there. Then I'll bring it back here."

*ahem*



And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted her head
And he got her a drink and he sent he to bed.
And when Cindy-Lou Who went to bed with her cup,
HE went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up!
Then the last thing he took
Was the log for their fire.
Then he went up the chimney himself, the old liar.
On their walls he left nothing but hooks, and some wire.
And the one speck of food
The he left in the house
Was a crumb that was even too small for a mouse.
Then.....

Let's see what happens to our power - we're expected to have about similar weather as Calma.

If only it didn't rain every day... :(

I've read very little by Dr. Seuss, and even that ages ago, but that Grinch story sounds quite funny. :D One learns something new every day.

He did the same thing
To the other Whos' houses
Leaving crumbs
Much too small
For the other Whos' mouses!
It was quarter past dawn...
All the Whos, still a-bed
All the Whos, still a-snooze
When he packed up his sled,
Packed it up with their presents! The ribbons! The wrappings!
The tags! And the tinsel! The trimmings! The trappings!
Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mount Crumpit,
He rode to the tiptop to dump it!
"Pooh-pooh to the Whos!" he was grinch-ish-ly humming.
"They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming!
"They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do!
"Their mouths will hang open a minute or two
"The all the Whos down in Who-ville will all cry BOO-HOO!"
"That's a noise," grinned the Grinch,
"That I simply must hear!"
So he paused. And the Grinch put a hand to his ear......

And he did hear a sound rising over the snow.
It started in low. Then it started to grow...

But the sound wasn't sad!
Why, this sound sounded merry!
It couldn't be so!
But it WAS merry! VERY!

He stared down at Who-ville!
The Grinch popped his eyes!
Then he shook!
What he saw was a shocking surprise!



nl.... You can have all the rain that is falling from the skies up here. It's been pouring all morning.

spd... Thanks for the use of the cooler. I might just take you up on it.

rowanberry... I feel your pain as well as your rain.

Well, the winds haven't started yet, but they are due this evening.

Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any presents at all!
He HADN'T stopped Christmas from coming!
IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?
It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
"It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
And he puzzled three hours, `till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!

Rain, rain go away

Well at least you got my package, nl. ;)


I was on my way to work this morning and flipped on the radio. What do I hear but the opening chords of 'The Hotel California'?

ROTFLOL! :D:D:D:D

It was eerie.

*ahem* And now to finish up the story of the mean ol' Grinch....

"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
And what happened then...?
Well...in Who-ville they say
That the Grinch's small heart
Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute his heart didn't feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light
And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast!
And he...
...HE HIMSELF...!
The Grinch carved the roast beast!
