Friday Fragments

Friday is FINALLY here. I am so, so, tired. It has been a long week, and I'm ready for some down time. Of course, I'll spend a good part of it cleaning house, but that's part of the joys of having a black mutt running around! 2 more Saturday's and then the racing takes over my weekends.

Friday also means it's time for Half-Past Kissin' Time's Friday Fragments - short thoughts that aren't enough to warrant a whole post on their own. So, here goes . . . .
You know it's a slow news day when one of the featured articles on CNN is "When Good Chimps Go Bad". I realize there's a tragic story behind that, but still . . . really? Good Chimps go Bad? I mean, I see so many every day that with some counseling could probably be helped . . .
Yesterday morning I was on my way in to work. I saw a penny - my 4th this week! Bent down to pick it up, and stepped up on the curb to the sidewalk, and promptly nearly lost my balance. I was able to catch myself, but just barely! At least it provided great entertainment to Stacey. Glad I got the penny though. Without that luck, I surely would have not saved myself!
Over the past month or so, I've gotten rather lax about make-up in the evening. I come home from the gym, eat, shower, and play with the mutt. 3 times in the past month I've found myself thinking, "Could you not have taken the time for a little gloss and mascara? Geez . . ." I once had an ER doctor take a look at me, then the patient, then me, and ask, "And, who again is the patient?" Ok, so 3 am might not be the best time of day for me!
I am soooo ready for warm weather. Usually I enjoy the various seasons, but cold without snow is just no fun. I'm tired of bundling up - tired of letting the car warm up, tired of fruit that might maybe taste like something I can remember, just ready for long breezy evenings that I can enjoy on my front porch!
I realized today that this is my 301st post. Do I really have that much to say?!?!?
Does anyone else watch Dirty Jobs? I have much love for the awesome Mike Rowe. I'm catching up on DVR shows, and the last one I watched had him helping out in the La Brea Tar Pits. That was over a month ago. Today, I read where they have just discovered a nearly intact mammoth skeleton. Except, Mike was helping to clean off one of his bones!!! So much for "just discovered"!
Last night I put together my new entertainment center. It was a bit intimidating, but I love doing stuff like that . . . because I can. And, it's going to look SO good once I get the old EC out of there . . . I'll post pics!

Come play with us . . .

Yea! Very impressive work on the E.C., Miss! And I find Mike Rowe to be extremely HOT! That penny story; give yourself kudos for exercising; I'll bet it's helped your balance and kept you from knocking your teeth out on the curb! :) Happy Friday~!~

I would have laughed at you falling all over yourself for a penny too. It's best that I wasn't there. ;)
