Friday Fragments

Good morning! It's finally Friday, but that doesn't mean a whole lot. I've got to be up at the crack of dawn tomorrow for several things. No rest for the weary, right?

Anyway, since it is Friday, it's time for Friday Fragments - those great posts that don't quite warrant a whole post, all to themselves.

While out walking with Laurel last week, she mentioned artichokes. After that, I couldn't get them out of my head, so I stopped by K-Rogers and picked a couple up. I justified the expense by saying if that was ALL I ate, then they weren't really that expensive, right?

I also discovered, last week, (Sorry, Mom) that for the low part of $90, you could get your more intimate areas adorned with genuine Swarovski crystals. Do say what? The worst part about this, is that if they are offering it, than someone is DOING it. People, say it with me. You are beautiful just the way you are. No bedazzling necessary, I promise! Yikes, and OUCH!

I had 2 patches of poison ivy on my arm. Now, I know I'm deathly allergic, so if at all possible, I avoid anything green and leafy. Turns out, giving my dog a bath, transferred the oil to me. Thanks, puppy.

Last weekend I again announced for the racetrack. How many different ways can you come up with, "around and around and around"? It got to be somewhat comical at times, but you know what? I loved doing it! Something different, and I'll have to put some thought into new and creative ways to say things.

I need to again tell L & K how much their gesture meant to me. Everyone likes getting flowers, but that they would think to even do it . . . . wow. I know I missed an incredible girls' trip. We'll have to plan something again for this summer. Love you guys!

At work, when things get stressful, or there's just down time, we tend to throw rubber stress balls at each other. I have horrible aim. Yesterday, I got one of those super lucky shots in, and hit the boss, dead on. Never mind that he constantly is throwing at us, he decided to seek revenge. While I was on the phone with a client, I lifted my Diet DP to take a swallow. BAM. Ball in the face/glass, and drink went ALL over me, my shirt, my keyboard . . . and it was one of those cute, light summer-y white shirts. So glad I wear a cami, but let me tell you . . . . revenge is SO best served cold!

And, with that, it's time to get ready for work. Won't you come play with us?

I think bossman should be buying you a new blouse or at least be paying for the dry cleaning bill. I would have been ticked!

Annie said...

Maybe you should layer a cardigan and don a helmet when you play?!?? LOL Get him back!

I can't wait to hear how you get your boss back for that one! heehee

How fun to be the announcer.

My hubby is still waiting for the racetracks to be shaped in a figure 8 - if they were, I bet that would lead to very interesting commentary.

Sorry about the Poison Ivy, just getting over mine.

Yeah, I would have really been pissed about the soda thing. However, he'll get paid back when that keyboard dies or has to be cleaned!

I'm glad your friends love you so much that they would think to do that. Can't say that I blame them :)

Loved your "bedazzled" comment-very funny. Now, where do I find those?? JK
