They're predicting weather this weekend.  Not sure if it's rain, snow, tornado or acid vog so we'll be winging our tomfoolery for the next few days.  Can they pay me $60,000 a year to throw a dart at a weather wheel too?

Any plans for the weekend?

  1. Is it wrong that I not only look forward to all the wonderful links you find but also to see how many I can get to make the list? I feel privileged to be able to share some of my own finds with everyone so thanks for making that possible!

    1. LOL...of course I include the ones that are of interest. No offense but the last one you sent me about coma patients kind of put me in one so I thought I'd let people find that on their own. HA!

  2. Can I play weather wheel darts with you? I'll be your assistant.

    I'll get to the posts later, but I did take a look at a couple. I loved the "things not to say" one and the "what not to do at work one". Definitely spot on.

    Have to go up tomorrow and get new copies of the key for my new car (it only came with one), sign some papers and make the final payment - so not financing through the lot. Then tomorrow night is the little guy's sleepover that got postponed last weekend.

    1. Absolutely! We can wear sequined gowns like Vanna White and take turns throwing darts in style. Oh man, as soon as I saw the office one it made me so glad I'm out of "corporate culture." Barf!!

      Today the car is "officially" yours! Woot!! Have fun with the sleepover!

  3. If you haven't already, you might be interested in watching this C-SPAN video of the Alzheimer's Disease hearing that Seth Rogen presented at. There are several statistics at the beginning that you might find interesting.
