Friday Fragments

Happy Friday, everyone! It's one of those gloriously lazy days where I don't have to be at work until 10. Yay, and stuff. It's almost worth having to work late. Hey, they're not called banker's hours for nothing.

Another thing about Friday, is that it's time for Friday Fragments. All those little thoughts/posts that don't stand up on their own . . . let 'em fly today!

First of all, I got my new phone last week. I'm usually in love with the latest and greatest, but let me tell ya'll. This one is fantabulous. I got the Env Touch, and it does everything I want and then some. Wondermous! Isn't it crazy what makes us happy? The only downside is that I think this age thing is catching up with me. I may actually have to read the manual for some of the gizmo's on it!

While I was at the Drag Strip last week, I flipped on the TV for some background noise. Patrick Swaze was doing his thing with Baby . . . you know, the dance that's done to the "Hungry Eyes"? All I can say is y u m m y. That's one of those movies that no matter what, makes you happy.

Last weekend, as usual, I headed down to the river with Britney. Here comes a couple of canoes, older people floating along. Except, the ladies didn't have tops. And things weren't exactly where they used to be. Oooo Kaaay. Sorry, but this isn't the kind of thing you see in Skeeter Flats. And then the guy stood up. Let's just say, I really hope they were using REALLY good sunblock!!

This week I also had my quarterly Skills Drill. And, I passed. By the skin of my teeth, but at least I'm off the hook for another 4 months. I hate those things. I know it's for a good reason, but I still stress myself out completely about it. I mean, I'm 33 and I still manage to have a friendly zit pop up to remind myself 5 days later. What's up with that?

Last night, Laurel and I were walking, and she mentioned artichokes. That's all it took, 'cause then I had to stop by K-rogers and pick a couple up. They were fantastic!

I'm now under 30 days til my beach trip. Excited is such an understatement! This upcoming week, some of my favorite friends are going to the Kenny Chesney concert. I can't go. I'm not going to go into why I can't go, but let's just say . . . . I still don't think it's fair! Still, I'm so excited for them, and I know that it's going to be one of those things that they will remember for years to come. Maybe I'll have to come home and listen to KC here at the house.

Come play with us . . . .

I'm eligible for a new phone in February and I'm excited about it already. I have the EnV2 and I like it but I love new stuff.

I can't believe those people were nude sunbathing...EEP!.

Oh, and I love Dirty Dancing!

I'm curious, how do you prep an artichoke?

I only buy them in a jar or can and have always wanted them fresh, but a bit confused how to prep..
