Word of the Day

|Mockery, is mine. |
It shrouds me like a diaphanous gown blowing and catching between my limbs, giving rise to the sweet ringing bells of mirth, pitiful as a disguise for joy.

|And get this... my DH has an interview with Mossberg, a gun maker, for an interview. Say what?|

|LOL--not mocking you by the way, bee. Do you want your hubby to get the job?|
My word is dictatorship

|ggturner, there is only one way to answer that question:|
If he wants the job, then I am happy for us. I will have to take up skeet shooting or something.

|I just read a write up about a 112 year old woman. “Her tips for living a long life are: “Love everybody. Don’t hate. Don’t gossip.”|
Obviously she doesn’t belong here.

|Right because none of the group hates on anyone, , only GSD does, right? The group doesn't gossip or spread rumors and we know how they love all. |
You have a good night grasshopper.

Stealth hunter of the deep watches while the other fishes school and sleep; suddenly excised, I am surprised to be, supper.

|Sympathy--the feeling of compassion for another especially in times of sorrow. |
The husband of a friend of mine passed away today from a massive heart attack.

|Chagrin, it is so nice to be given the opportunity to seize another day!|
That is the feeling you get when you get all dressed up for the party and find out you are a day early.
Well, so we went out to dinner instead. Now, ladies, do I need to go buy a new dress or just use the steam clean and hope no one who saw me at the restaurant will be at the party? ... TONIGHT.
LOL, oh, some of you would have enjoyed watching me as I looked at the hostess lady with chagrin, and said, "Now, you know I can't go out there, he's going to kill me!" We both watched my DH as he turned around to depart, his body language saying it all.
(GG, so sorry for your sad new of your DH's friend.)

Felt very proud last night at our school's graduation ceremony. Proud of all of the graduates and their accomplishments. Proud that one of my former students just signed a teaching contract at our school for next year! It will be fun having a former student as one of my coworkers. Proud that one of my former students is now in vet school (Auburn) and another former student is getting his PhD in Pharmaceutical Research. Yet another is getting her PhD in Physical Therapy. And another a PhD in Mathematics. Another just got a master's degree in seminary school. One is at Georgia Tech getting a master's degree in electrical engineering. I love hearing about them and their accomplishements. They come back to see me and keep in touch through facebook.
Thanks for the condolences--I never met my friend's (one of my coworkers) husband, but I am full of grief for her and her family. They have 3 grown daughters and a grandson.

|Ruger...I think that's why my DH kind of let me off easy last night... he's going to tell this story, oh, about a hundred times tonight, and it's only going to get worse for me as the night wears on! LOL|
And to top it all off, for this same couple, we once never replied to an invite, and missed the party. Turns out it was lost in the mail, and she felt weird asking why I didn't reply. So this time she called me to make sure we would be there... (I guess I'm a lot of fun at parties, lol,) any way, this time, we sure weren't going to be even fashionably late! He also had a spare polo shirt, so he went inside to change, that helped even more. As he returned to the Hunt Club restaurant he looked at me and said, "I'm going to change. YOU stay there."
I wondered, where was I supposed to go? Knock that kid down, way over there in the pasture in my dress and heels and steal his pony?
But hey, I'm thinking, maybe I just wanted to break in my new shoes. OK, I'm going to freshen up the dress... it is fun and sparkly! There will be dancing, tonight!

|LOL Bee on going a day early.|
I took the wife and Pango away for the weekend, we check in, I get the luggage out of the Pango-mobile, and inform the wife that I don't see the bag she keeps her medicine in. So we go all the way back home to pick it up. Just got back to the motel. What can you do?
by beetree on 19 May 2012 - 21:01
|Exactly what you did do! LOL Somehow your story made me feel good! LOL Hope you all have a great weekend. |
You must be breaking in the Pango-mobile, its virgin ride? Did Pango show his appreciation for you pimping his ride? I want to see that wheel cover when you get back!
Off to pRimping again, for myself! LOL

Still waiting for the spare tire cover and a few other items. But the outside is complete, the new tires and rims are on, I took a few picture of Pango at a cemetary where I let him run off leash. A lot of famous people buried here.
