Good Friday Morning, Crew!

:donut: :hi:
T.G.I.F.!!!!! :bounce:

Welcome to this Friday edition of the Early Morning Crew thread! :bounce: I'm all excited because today is the first day of my vacation! :woohoo: It seems as if it's taken forever to get here, but here we are!

I hope you've had a great week so far! One more work shift and the weekend will be upon us, so you can relax and have some fun instead of hitting the old grindstone. I'm going to be leaving for Missouri to see my parents early in the morning...and when I say early, I'm talking 3:30 to 4am. If I can get on the road by 4 at the latest, I should be in Springfield by 7:30 to 8pm! In other words...it's a LOOONG drive. :rofl:

I'm not going to have access to a computer for a week (until next Saturday), so I have asked SeattleGirl to be in charge of the Early Morning Crew thread while I'm gone! She said she'd be happy to, so Miss Seattle will be in charge until I return! THANK YOU!, Miss Seattle for filling in for me while I'm gone! :bounce:

So let's get this day started, my crew! :bounce: It's going to be a good one! :woohoo:

41. mmm pancakes.
Wait... you probably know some hot breakfasts, what are they?
(Hot breakfasts are) So alien to me, but now I've moved to somewhere colder so "?" I may just need to know.

Are pancakes served hot in the morning? I've had dessert ones, but they were cold.

49. "cold ones *shudder* "O.K., cool, not frozen like the icecream they
were with. Maple syrup, yes, butter... which sick bastard would have butter 'n' icecream?

Aussies like their food cold. (DEpending on where you are). You do get heated desert components.
Apparently, the English eat yoghurt for desert... and pronounce it yog-ert. yog to ryhme with jog... wait accents f that idea up.... oh well. Point is the same: Bizzare, huh?

58. Pronounciation I can stand. Having yoghurt for desert is a little freaky.
Speaking of freaky, if you scroll down the lounge and find S-E-V-E-N Billyskank goodnight threads, it's nothing to do with me.


Honest.


Would I lie to you?

Same goes for the 3 Duck threads and two threads admonishing the seven billyskanks.

70. Yes, yes, I'll not deny that
Xemasab did it.

By magic.

I tell the truth all the time. Except on days ending in 'y'.

It was a small off duty female checkoslovakian traffic warden,
as part of a project invovling the Bolivian Navy on maneuvres in the South Pacific!

(Which is actually the South Warmongic in disguise)

:yoiks:

So, I hear that they are calling snap elections in America. That's what LBN said anyway.
















Made you look! :yoiks: :yoiks:

I'm plotting my next trick on GD. Any good ideas? I'm thinking of doing the old "It's actually against that forum's rules to link, but WOW! LOOK AT (forum)" and editing it every minute to a different forum.

Ahh, such delight in evil.

94. Actually, the Athiest/Agnostic forum found this whacko
site that claimed, for instance, looking at women in 'that way', even if you aren't married equals adultery.

All ten commandments were like that, but I still scored 3/10 (No, I wasn't innocent of his adultery clause), next week 4/10, and if his statements weren't contradictory, I could get 5/10.

Considering that the guy behind it is also known as Captain Wack McWierd, Leitenant of the WhatTheFuckIsHeGibberingAbout corps, to get that score you have to be an angel. Who looks at tits.

97. True, some of them are fairly interesting.
Personally, I frequent the atheist and the skeptic forums, which are each 1/2 serious stuff, 1/2 insult a (forum specific lingo, eg. xian, woo woo)

But really, I must admit to being cracked up by the angeltits quote.
I'll put it in my journal, I think.

Morning, darlin'!!! I must say I wish I were also going on vacation, as I badly need one, but I'm quite happy to mind the store while you're gone. Thanks for asking me to do that! :loveya:

The only thing I'm concerned about is the Song of the Day, but I guess I'll just have to pick something and hope it goes over well! :hug:

Edited on Fri Apr-07-06 06:30 AM by Clintmax
It was an AWESOME machine! It even had a food disposal in it so that any food washed off the dishes was ground up and washed away in the emptying cycle! When I moved into this place, it already had a dishwasher so I gave it to my little brother.

10. Good morning Clint
I almost feel sorry not to be part of SG's Good morning threads. But only almost.

I packed my stuff yesterday and took it with me to work this morning. My train to my mom leaves at 5pm (only 4 more hours of work :bounce: ) and tomorrow I'll be flying to Prague :woohoo:

I'll be thinking of you and your long drive. You better be careful and have a safe trip!!!

I am sure we will find an agreement that we see each other often enough over the weekends. April is just a bad months for us since I am gone most weekends.

Edited on Fri Apr-07-06 06:09 AM by Sugar Smack
My best friend is coming over to spend the night tonight. I made this pasta sauce for tonight's dinner that's really rich, a hearty meat and tomato sauce that I let simmer for 2 hours while I cleaned.

Anyway, today after work, I pick her up and we go to my house. I'll cook us dinner and we'll be lazy and pick out movies and talk all night!!!

I feel as if you are taking a deep breath and saying aaaaa!! Finally, the day has come, now I wish you slow, easy days except for tomorrow which would be great if the time would just fly by.

I want to know what you'll be listenng to tomorrow. You know music is very important when you're driving because radios are iffy on the long stretches as you know you're choices will be either country or religion. ;-) lol

Many hugs and be safe on your excellent adventure, enjoy!! :hi: :loveya: :hug: :headbang: :bounce:

Suspect you're counting down the hours now. Your work day will zoom by, and b/4 you know it you'll be hitting the road at that ungodly hour of the morning. I suspect your Mom's going to freak out when she gets that phone call from you.

SeatleGirl is a great choice for your replacement. I don't know her well, only from here and reading other posts, but she seems really nice, and I'm sure she'll do a great job.

Anyway, wishing you a safe trip I know you'll have tons of fun with your family and friends.

119. No lookers.
But our realtor called and said that the one who cancelled for Wed. afternoon has been here before and wants to bring her husband -- we're on the short list of houses she likes. The husband got called out of town and they'll come next week.

The one who didn't show up at all just got tired of looking at 8:00. They were due here at 7:00, so it appears they were behind schedule. When my realtor suggested to her that it would have been a good idea to call, she said, "Gee, I never even thought about that!" x( He said it was really hard for him to be nice to her.

129. I wonder if the man at the furniture store felt that way yesterday.
We ordered new family room furniture and they sent a little square of leather in the mail. We looked at it and wondered, "Is this the right color?" So we called up the store and told them we wanted to come in and look at the colors again. Sure enough, it was the right color. It just looks a lot different in a tiny swatch than it does on a piece of furniture. I'm sure the guy was rolling his eyes. He was very nice about it, though.
:rofl:

130. I wouldn't think you were silly for THAT.
The colors of our furniture look different sometimes in a persons house because we have spotlights all over the store shining on them and they look somewhat lighter on the showroom than in use. I try to tell everyone that as I'm answering questions and stuff. I've more than one person come back in to re-look at colors.

The ones who get me are those people who come in one day, see somethings on a great sale, doesn't buy it and then comes in a month later and is mad when the sale is over and wants me to give them the old sale price anyway. :eyes: It doesn't quite work that way, you know?

131. Well, they let us take the big piece home before we ordered.
And it looked perfect. The little piece even looked wrong in the showroom until we compared it to the sofa. It was like an optical illusion or something.

The guy told us the prices were going up on April 1. This furniture never goes on sale, apparently. But we had a whole week to decide. It would have been our tough luck if we'd waited till April 1 to order it.

People do expect the strangest things, don't they? :shrug:

133. Yeah, they do sometimes.
But, that's just the way it is, I guess. Well, Miss Airmens...I need to go get a bunch of stuff done today so I can leave early in the morning for Missouri. SeattleGirl is going to be in charge of the Early Morning Crew thread while I'm gone, so you'll still have the crew here while I'm away! I hope you have a great weekend and upcoming week and hopefully, when I get back, you can say; "Guess what?! We sold the house!! :bounce:" You take care of yourself and tell Mr. Harley I said Hello and that I'm glad he's feeling a little better now! :loveya:

I'll see you when I get back from vacation, my dear! :grouphug:

144. Yes, I was just playing a little prank.
Which is nothing against the prank I have planned! It's a whopper, but I need to do it at the right time.
