Friday Fragments

Good happy Friday to everyone! Right now I'm listening to one of my favorite Sugarland songs, "Come On Get Higher". Yes, I realize that the Matt Nathinson version is out there, but theirs is the first one, and I like it better. So there.

Since it is Friday, that means it's time for Friday Fragments - small posts that don't get their own, whole day. Gotta make it quick, because first of all,

Don't you hate it when you hit OFF instead of SNOOZE? Yeah, that throws things for a loop. Thankfully(?) I have a puppy who is a very early riser, and made sure that I got up, eventually. I hate to cut it close though!

This week, like the rest of the world, we were talking about Michael Jackson at work. Stacey was kind enough to demonstrate her MJ moves. She demonstrated all right, and I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. I love that girl! Her "Whoo!" move? I don't even have the words.

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you had a remote control, and could "Pause", or do one of those quick rewinds for the last 30 seconds or so that was amazing? I dreamt that I had one of those, and it wasn't anything like "Click", it was FANTASTIC.

Last Saturday night I had to dig out blankets - it got down to FIFTY! July? In the South? Oh man, it felt SOOO good. My electric bill is loving this weather, too!

When I went to my meeting this month, I had the privilege of seeing a Kobota tractor parked at Burger King. Heck, I guess everyone wants to have it their way! As I was trying to sneak a pic with my cell phone, this very nicely dressed businessman came out, got in, and drove off! I loved it.

This week I was sworn in as Secretary for the squad. Again. I did it for 3 years once, and you'd think I would have learned my lesson. Still, I've discovered that I miss being around, and am starting to get back into it. Paperwork, you are my albatross!

I finally sold Daisy! My poor Honda that had more issues than I do. I had bought it for $700 6-7 years ago, and sold it for $450. I'll take it! It's just enough to pay for the repairs to the Buick that need to happen. I go back to this quote: If it has tires or testicles, it's going to give you trouble. Still, I'm grateful to know someone who does very reasonable work, honestly. You don't usually find those two things hand in hand!

And, on that note, I've GOT to get in the shower. I'm not going to play next week, as I'm going to be following the Zac Brown song. "I've got my toes in the water, tail in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold drink in my hand, Life is good today." BEACH, baby!

You actually just reminded me how long its been since I've set an alarm. I work from home, and I sleep odd hours. I pretty much sleep when 'hubs' is at work from 9-5. When he comes home he wakes me up, and when he goes to work I go to bed. LOL. So, I never use an alarm clock. He is my wake up and go to bed alarm. LOL!

I would love it to hit 50 here. I am in Arkansas, and it's been in the 80s and 90s pretty steadily. I want to move up North where there is no Summer, just Fall and Winter all year 'round. :o)
