Moral of the story? Don't cut corners.

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!



Saturday 9: All Night Long (All Night)
(because Lia asked for an 80s song)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) This music video was produced by Mike Nesmith of The Monkees. Can you name a Monkees song?

Oh, I can name MANY of them!  I'm a Believer... Last Train to Clarksville. the theme to their show..  shall I go on? 

2) The song includes the foreign sounding phrases, "Oh jambali Tom bo li d, say de moi ya," and "Oh, Jambo Jumbo!" Mr. Richie meant to include language indigenous to the Caribbean, but was writing the song under deadline and simply made those phrases up instead. Tell about the most recent time you cheated or "cut corners."
Really?  I try not to do that.  I live in a house where corners were cut, and it shows.  If I cut corners at work?  It shows.  If I cut corners with my kid?  It shows.  Moral of the story?  Don't cut corners. 

3) Richie was a frat boy at college. Kappa Kappa Psi, to be exact. Were you a member of a fraternity or sorority?

You really shouldn't say "frat"...  Would you call your country a "count"?  I was a member of the GDI's.  The Goddamn Independents.  LOL

4) When this song topped the charts (September 1983), Vanessa Williams became the first African American to be crowned as Miss America. Do you watch beauty pageants?

I used to, when I was young and had aspirations of being Miss America, but that was before I realized you had to have a talent, be skinny and able to wear a bikini.  Once I realized that - that shit was all over..

5) Since it's Labor Day weekend, that holiday established to

celebrate the American worker, let's talk about the workplace. Tellers work in a bank, actors work on a stage or a set, auto workers work on an assembly line. How would you describe your workplace?
I work in a cubicle farm. 

6) An estimated 40% of us have dated a coworker. Have you ever had an office romance?

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAHA.... yeah.  Don't try that shit.  It doesn't work. 



7) Labor Day is a big weekend for travel. How did you book your last vacation? (Online, through a travel agent, over the phone ...)
Does anyone use travel agents any more?  I found the cottage on homeaway.com (highly recommend it by the way).. then took it from there!

8) Mother Winters won't wear white again now until next Memorial Day. Sam thinks that's just crazy. Where do you fall in this heated mother/daughter debate?
I think that is just craziness... But in Mother Winter's defense, I do have a pair of "winter white" pants. 

9) When you look at back on Summer 2014, what will you remember?
How much FUN it was.  This has been one of the busiest summers I've had in forever.  Having a house full of kids (kids - to me) was a highlight.  I always said I'd have had 10 kids if given the chance.  Now, I get to do that - just during the summer.  I was the host family coordinator for the local college level baseball team - and found housing for 50 something kids (not all at the same time, thank God!!) - and really just enjoyed the heck out of it.  I had some stay with me as well, and it was just FUN.  And the fact that some of these kids may go on to play in the major leagues?  Just a bonus.  :)
 
Happy Saturday!

Fictional Favorites

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.

There's a reason why I'm single.. LOL




Saturday 9: I Got You, Babe
(recommended by Thank You Great Spirit)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) Popular music has produced almost countless groups, but not that many duos. Besides Sonny & Cher, can you name another?Hmmmm, a duo?  Big & Rich, Captain & Tennile (however you spell it)... there are plenty

2)  Hearing this recording from his clock radio is how Bill Murray woke up every morning in Groundhog Day. What woke you up this morning?

I think I had an alarm set for 8:00.  I shut that bitch up LOL .. and then slept until 10:30 or so.  I was a tired bunky

3) When she was growing up, Cher practiced her autograph for when she became a star. Is your signature legible? Or is it more of a scrawl?

It's legit legible.  my son's on the other hand?  not recognizable as his name LOL

4) In addition to show biz, Sonny & Cher had many careers: Sonny was a restauranteur and politician, Cher is an interior designer. Would you like to try your hand at any of those professions?

I'd love to own a bakery/coffee shop.  

5) In 1965, when this song topped the charts, Sonny and Cher were as famous for their wardrobe as for their music. Sonny was fond of tall, heavy-heeled boots while Cher often paired granny dresses with bare feet. What's on your feet right now?

Flip flops.  My standard wear for the summer.  But they can't be the cheap ones, because I have plantar fascitis in my left foot.  I have to wear good ones.  i.e. - not cheap..

6) By 1968, their career crashed. Cher's early attempts as a movie actress failed, their records stopped selling and the IRS came after them for back taxes. Have you ever been audited?

No, but I owe the IRS money for 2 years straight because of mistakes I've made on my taxes.  And for someone that lives paycheck to paycheck?  Not fun.  



7) In 1971 they were on top again with their TV show. But their marriage was coming apart. Sonny said, "For the last 5 years I worried about our career, not about us." Have you ever been guilty of putting career before relationship? 
Relationship?  Career?  I'll let you know when I have either or both..
8) By 1972 they were living separate lives -- in the same house. For the sake of The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, they pretended to be happily married another year and a half. Tell us about a time when you pretended to be happy, but weren't.
With my ex boyfriend - I stayed longer than I should have because my son was happy.  
9) While their separation and divorce were bitter, they resumed their friendship when Cher showed up at the opening of his restaurant in 1976. Have you ever made the first move in repairing a relationship?
More than once.  But a word to the wise?  When you have to put that much effort in repairing a relationship?  It's not worth it.  There's a reason why I've never been married..  I have yet to find anyone worth fighting that hard for. 
 
Happy Saturday :)

In what kind of world is Gaga more normal than Miley?

From "A Place Of My Own" by L'Empress

 Would you ever cheat on someone if they cheated on you?
Why?  Why bother?  If you're both obviously unhappy - why stay together?  I have never cheated on someone (but I've dated more than one person at a time - don't recommend it, too confusing).  I've been cheated on - and said buh-bye..  And if you know my story, you know about the Putz.  LOL

 Would you ever consider becoming a teacher?

I wanted to be a teacher for the longest time.  I never did it though.  I wonder why..

 Would you ever give a hitch-hiker a ride somewhere?
I have, many moons ago.  Now?  Hells to the naw.

 Would you ever try fasting for a whole week?
What the hell is wrong with you?  WHY would someone give up food for a week?  That's just crazy.  I had a hard enough time with clear liquids before my colonoscopy.  Although I did lose 5 lbs.  Hmmmmmmm

 Would you ever try to quit one of your addictions?
I'm a smoker.  I realized that I've smoked longer than I haven't smoked.  I know I need to quit.  It's just hard dammit.

 Would you ever dye your hair purple?
Sure, why not?  Hair color isn't permanent.

 Would you ever spend $100 for the best tasting hamburger in the world?
I'd have a really hard time justifying that.  But hey - I spent $100 in the casino last night.  How do I justify THAT?  LOL

 Would you rather chew gum off the ground or kill a squirrel?
Gum off the ground is nasty.  So are squirrels.  Die, squirrel die!

 Would you rather play Monopoly or Operation?

Either

 Would you rather eat chocolate or fruity candies?
Um, that's a silly question. 

 Would you rather listen to one CD forever or become deaf?

That's a silly question.  As long as it's a good CD, I'm all good.

 Would you rather be deaf or blind?

Neither.

 Would you rather text or talk on the phone?

Talk on the phone.  Texting is so much effort. 

 Would you rather spend a day with Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus?

Gaga - she'd be way more normal, believe it or not.

 Would you rather learn to play piano or guitar?

Guitar is cool

 Would you rather have a stomach-ache or headache?
Stomach-ache.  Then I'd lose weight, right?

 Would you rather be overly interesting or overly dull?

You can never be too interesting!

 Would you rather be too loud or too quiet?

I come from the Loud Family, so that's a no-brainer!

Saturday 9: Mine Would Be You (recommended by Kathy W) <--- b="" hey="" me="" nbsp="" s="" that="">


Sheeeeeeees baaaaaaaaack!  What a crazy busy summer this has been!  I have been so busy between baseball, baseball, vacation and more baseball that I haven't had much time for anything else.  My lawn is dead, the weeds started taking over, and I just had my hair colored today to get rid of the over 2" of gray creeping in.  
I am SO excited that the Ice Bucket Challenge has taken flight and gone viral.  ALS is a horrible disease, and there needs to be more research and they've certainly gotten the funding for that in the past month!  While I am still estranged (who made up that word anyway?) from my brother and his family, I still think of them often, and wish nothing that the best for them.  I hope that it helps knowing that some day a cure will be found.  I've reached out to my sister in law, and hope some day that we can sit down over a cup of coffee and talk.  
I'm just heartbroken about Robin Williams.  Not sure what else to say.  This one hurt.  

And on to Saturday 9!

 
What a week to come back - one of my favorite songs!  :)

Saturday 9: Mine Would Be You
(recommended by Kathy W)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) The lyrics mention his respect for "90 proof and Marlboro Red." What was your most recent drink? When was your last cigarette?
I had a Dirty Girl Scout shot last night, and smoked about 20 min. ago.  Vices....

2)  They also reference "singing like crazy fools." What's the last song you sang?
We were at a piano bar last night, and sang along with a LOT of songs..
3) Blake Shelton won a Grammy for his performance of this song. Crazy Sam won the award for "most improved bowler" when she was in third grade, and it's now in a closet somewhere. Do you have any trophies? If so, where are they?
I stole a pair of your Mom's underwear.. LOL  I got nothin'..
4) Blake is currently on tour. The merchandise sold at concerts brings in big money for the artist. Do you have any tour memorabilia (like a poster or t-shirt)? 
Does the Pope shit in the woods?  I have more than I care to count..
5) In addition to The Voice, Shelton is on TV a lot with his Pizza Hut commercials. What chain restaurant is nearest your home? Do you eat there?
Hungry Howies and Papa John's.  We eat from them both!



6) Shelton has a million-seller CD called Cheers! It's Christmas! What's the first Christmas carol to pop into your head this hot summer Saturday?
Sleigh bells ring.... are you listenin'...

7) Shelton and Miranda Lambert were married in front of 550 guests. Do you enjoy weddings?
Absolutely!

8) The wedding took place on a big Texas ranch. Have you spent much time on a farm or a ranch?
No, but I'd like to go to a dude ranch and find myself a dude.  Guy.  Cowboy.  Rancher.  You know... just one.  My age.  I don't ask for much..

9) In 2013 he helped organize a relief benefit concert for victims of the Oklahoma tornados. Tell us about a charity you support.
I AM a charity.  Want to support me?
I actually do the Relay for Life every year.  :)
 
Happy Saturday!

She was right, Christian Mingle would probably be a bad idea..

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday.

We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


Saturday 9: Ring of Fire
(because country music was recommended by Colletta's Kitchen's Sink)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.


1) Recorded by Johnny Cash, "Ring of Fire" was written by his wife, June Carter. Johnny's daughter Roseanne says it's about "the transformative power of their love." What's your favorite love song?
I really like "Happy" by Bruce Springsteen..  but other than that?  Don't really have one.  I'll let you know when I find it.

2) Though more than 50 years old, this song is still popular today. Country Music Television named it one of the best and most requested of all time. Are you a country music fan?
Damn skippidy straight!

3) This recording features mariachi horns, inspired by Mexican folk music. Have you ever been to Mexico? 
I have!  Spent a week in Cancun with a bunch of friends..  good times... good times...

4) Cash's birth certificate said, "J. R. Cash," and "J.R." is what his parents always called him. When he enlisted in the Air Force, Uncle Sam refused to let him simply go by initials, so he chose the name "John." If you could choose a different name for yourself, what would it be?
  I actually introduced myself as Ingrid to someone last night.  He told me his name was Fred, and I figured if he was lying then so should I.  LOL   And he was a friend of a friend, and an absolute hoot.  When he walked away, I asked my friend if he was single, and sadly, he was not.  Her daughter then proceeded to ask me if I was "churchy"...  Which I'm not, and told her as much.  She then informed me that "Christian Mingle" probably wouldn't work for me.  

5) Cash and his first wife, Vivian, had their first date at a roller skating rink. Tell us about one of your first dates.
I went on a date with a guy that worked for the same company, but in another location.  He showed up with black pants, black jacket and a bright yellow shirt.  I couldn't get the image of a bumble bee out of my head.  Nice guy, but I just wasn't feeling it..

6) Cash died in September, 2003, four months after he lost his second wife, and love of his life, June. The cause of death given was complications from diabetes, but his children believe he died of a broken heart. Do you think that's possible? 
I remember once feeling like I was going to die when the boy's father and I broke up (and I broke up with him, for the record).. now I realize that was one of two things.  1.  Gas or 2.  Growing pains.  Or maybe it was a combination of the two..

7) Cash was known as "The Man in Black." What color do you wear most often?
I'm wearing blue and green right now..

8) There's a Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville. What's the last museum you visited?
Oh dear... The Art Museum in Chicago, I think..

9) A stretch of Tennessee Highway 31E is known as "Johnny Cash Parkway." What street in your town is named for a famous person? 
I don't know, but I'm sure there's a Jeter Way in Kalamazoo somewhere...

Let's go!!!

From Sweet Memes, our friend CAT!:

Travel anywhere, where would it be?
Cruise around the world.  I mean, really - if money's no object.. why not?

 Meet anyone, who would it be?

 Bring anyone dead back to life, who would it be?
Harriet. 

 Be anyone for a day, who would it be?
The Queen of England.  Why not?

 Get anything for free for the rest of your life what would it be?
Gas.  LOL

 Change one thing about your life what would it be?
Not sure, to change things would change where I am today, and I kind of like where I am today..

 Have any superpower what would it be?
the Cloak of Invisibility.  That would be AWEsome!

 Be any animal for a day which would you be?
A bald eagle

 Date anyone who would it be?

Narnia

 Eliminate one of your human needs which would you get rid of?

None of 'em!
 Be talented at anything instantly what would you choose?
I'm already Queen of England, isn't that talent enough?

 Forget one event in your life which would you choose?
Doesn't matter- I was drinking tequila, it's all still fuzzy..

 Erase an event from history (make it so it never happened) which would you choose?

I'll let you know when I come back from my world cruise.  Seattle is up there, though..

 Change one law in your country, which would you change?
Not so much a law, but everyone should have the right to marry who they choose.  It's not up to me or anyone else to choose that for them. 

 Be any height, which would you choose?  

Giselle Bundchen's
Have any job in the world, which would you choose? 
I would make a damn good detective.. just sayin'..

The man about to give me the cloak of invisibility, of course!


I finally have a day "off"... kind of.  I'm prepping for my lovely colonoscopy tomorrow.  Not a day when you really want to be far from the house.  Or the bathroom, even.   And just an FYI?  I'm rethinking the sleeping in instead of having breakfast before 8am.  Now I'm hungry.  LOL

Happy Sunday!

Adventure time? LOL

I Feel the Earth Move

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!




If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.


1) This song is from the album Tapestry, one of the all-time best-sellers (more than 25,000,000 copies sold worldwide). Is it in your collection? 
I actually used to own the 8 track.  LOL  How's that for dating myself?  One of my favorites!
2) It's about that glorious passion you feel when you first fall for someone. How many times have you been in love? 
hmmmmm.... I've been in lust a number of times, but earth-quaking, booty shaking love love?  Twice.
3) San Francisco radio stations briefly removed "I Feel the Earth Move" from their playlists after the 1989 earthquake. Have you ever been in an earthquake and literally felt "the earth move under your feet?"
No.  Bummer. 
 

4) Carole King is the first and only woman to win the Gershwin Prize for songwriting from the Library of Congress. Here's your chance to brag a little -- tell us about an accolade you have received.
I won honorable mention in a photography contest once.  a LONG time ago.  LOL

5) Carole wrote "You've Got a Friend," which was a mega hit for her good pal, James Taylor. King and Taylor have known one another for more than 40 years, but have never been romantically involved. Do you have any platonic friends of the opposite sex?
Yup.  And it's not even like Harry met Sally.  We're really just friends.
6) Like more than 80% of the population, Carole is right handed. Are you right handed, left handed (10%) or that most rare of all, ambidextrous (less than 10%)?
I can write with both hands, and do some things righty, some lefty - so I guess I'm one of the less than 10%..

7) One of Carole King's earliest hits was Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion." Little Eva was the teenager King hired to care for her young children. Tell us about a sitter who cared for you when you were little.
Wait, I'm supposed to remember that shit?  Hells no..
8) Beautiful is the title of the Broadway play about Carole King's life. If we were producing your lifestory, what would you want us to call it?
Aaaaaaaaaaadventure Time!

9) Carole wrote "Pleasant Valley Sunday," the Monkees' song about conspicuous consumption. When Crazy Sam looks at her crowded shelf of hair products (paraben-free conditioner, keratin-restoring conditioner, hair masque, hot oil conditioner …), she realizes she's guilty of it herself. Have you bought anything recently that you later decided was a waste of money?

Yeah.  I got the boy some pub chips with his grilled cheese last week.  He didn't like them.  I knew I should have gotten the cottage cheese!  LOL

The Coach Store salespeople are dumb sometimes....

90, part three

  (OK, so I went back and looked at 1-60 and was thinking about doing them, because obviously I missed them, but um.. yeah.  Not gonna do it.  Sorry kids.  LOL)

Let's go!!!


From Survey Haven:

61. Do you like current pop stars?
Like as in, like-like?  Like I will die if Justin "put your damn shirt on and pull your stupid pants up" Bieber ever looked at me?   Or like as in "meh, I can stand what this person is passing off as music".  Which brings me to this.  How many of these pop stars can actually sing??  As in - take away the synthesizers, take away all the bubblegum bullshit - put them on a stage with a guitar and a microphone.  How many can SING??  Right?  Not that many..  There's a reason why they lip-synch. 


62. What is your least favorite chore? 

Seeing as how *I* own the house, I'm the one that delegates the chores, right?  Chores.  My mother used to make me trim the hedges.  I HATED trimming the hedges.  I butchered them so bad - every single time - on purpose.  She'd get pissed, my father would have to "fix" them - and I'd tell her - every single time - I HATE doing this, I don't know how to do it right, and get one of the boys to do it (you see, in my house, boys were allowed to sit on their asses all day and do nothing, the females did all the work) - needless to say, I did it so bad one time, that was the end of it.  And that became the "go vacuum the stairs" time.  Ugh.  

63. Last place you drove your car? 

That would be into my driveway.  What are we, 17?  

 64. Ever been out of the country? Why yes, a number of times.  You?  Greece, Ireland, London, Canada (many times), tropical islands, Mexico... blah blah blah...

 65. Where were you the last time you used a public bathroom? 

Where were you the last time you bought a condom?  Come on now!

 66. Could you handle being in the military? You can't handle the truth! 

 67. What is your average cell phone bill?
The amount that I've agreed to pay each month. 

 68. Who or what are you thinking about right now?
How dumb some of these questions are!

 69. When was the last time you laughed REALLY hard? I laugh every day - it's what makes the world go 'round, don'tcha know..

 70. How many pairs of shoes do you own? I'm not really a shoe person, I'm more of a purse gal.  And I lean towards Coach purses.  Except the one time I was with my friend Ashley at the Coach store in Chicago.. I had plans of buying one, if not two purses, and the salespeople walked past me to talk to my tall skinny (and very very broke) friend Ashley.  I, not being tall or thin, was completely overlooked and ignored.  As we walked out, I grabbed the manager and told her that not only had she lost a customer - I'd make sure that other people knew about how they treated me as well.  I refuse to go to that store again (and in reality none of the bimbos probably work there any more) - but I still love my Coach and buy online.  Coach outlet?  So dangerous...   So wait.  Where were we?  Oh.  Not enough to justify a closet of their own.

 71. Are your toes always painted?

Um, no

 72. How many piercings do you have? Enough to make your Dad happy

 73. What are you doing today? Your dad

 74. Have you ever been gambling?
Yeah, today I'm gambling that your Mom won't be home LOL

 75. When is the last time you updated your blog? Right.  This.  Second. 


I decided not to answer 76 - 90.  This one was dumb.  I'm sorry.   LOL

Although, I did like the last couple of questions.  YES, I'm happy with my life right now.  I have a job - it may not be my dream job, but it pays the bills.  I'm working on that - but at least I'm proactive about it, not sitting and beyotching about it.  I have a home.  Same thing - not my dream house, but it's a roof over my head and provides shelter for myself and my son.  I have my son.  He's such an awesome kid, it kills me.  Although right now he hasn't had a shower in a couple of days, and his teeth look fuzzy.  Anywhoooo - yeah.  I'm a happy person.  :)  There are always things that could be improved, but there are lots of things that could be worse.  

Also, if I could be anywhere right now?  Beach.  Ocean.  Ahhhhhhhhhh....

Happy Sunday - I actually got to sleep in today.  THAT makes me a happy happy person.

You mean it's not about a Corvette?



Saturday 9: LIttle Red Corvette (recommended by Smellyann
No link this week. Prince apparently is very strict about copyright infringement.
Not for nothing, but Prince is really a short little freaky deaky ding dong man...
1) The subject of this song is frankly sexual. Do you blush easily?
What?  I thought it was about a car?  Oh Jesus....

2) Prince is his real name (Prince Rogers, to be exact). Growing up, his relatives called him "Skipper." Do you have any nicknames within your family?
Some... For years my siblings called me "bubble butt".. (and you wonder why I don't speak to them any more??)  My mother called my brothers Booboos I and Booboos II.  Not sure about the other one.  I just call her "bitch"...
3) Prince says he's "obsessed" with Mozart and reads whatever he can find about the composer. What's the last book you read?
Some stupid one on my iPad.  I forget the name of it.  Now I'm reading The Circle.  Weird. 
4) Between Prince and The Beach Boys, the Corvette is a much sung-about car. Tell us about your vehicle. 
Seriously?  Take a look at the finest that Jeep has to offer... my Lucy 2.0.  She's a pretty girl, and loves to drive with her top off.  She was born in 2007, and I bought her a month or so ago - and she's still got less than 5,000 miles on her.  I'm taking care of that soon.. LOL

5) In the 1980s, when Prince was popular, MTV could turn a song into a hit. In 2014, how do you hear new music?
Through my ears???  What kind of a silly question is that.... pshaw! 

6) In 1982, when "Little Red Corvette" ruled the airwaves, Braniff Airways shocked the travel industry and threw passengers into chaos by declaring bankruptcy. When did you last fly? Did your trip go smoothly?

I flew back to Boston for my HS reunion in November.  Smooth like buttah!

7) 1982 is also the year Disney opened Epcot. Have you ever been to a Disney park?

HAH!  I went to Disney WORLD when they still used tickets to get in.  I was in 2nd grade, just a young pup. I can't remember how many times I've been, but I've taken Josh there twice, and we've been to Disney Land once.  I'm due.  LOL

8) 1982 is the year Cheers premiered. The sitcom was set in a bar where "everybody knows your name." Tell us about your favorite local bar or restaurant.

Well, first off - if you ever get to Boston, don't go to the Cheers bar.  It's not the right one.  That one is just a tourist trap.  I have a few local watering holes that I like.  Depends on the mood.  :)

9) The 1980s were considered a highpoint in professional tennis, with Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe dominating the sport. Do you play tennis?

No.  I think tennis is boring.  I'd rather do naked mud wrestling or something like that.  Oh.  Wait.  Whoops?  


Still crazy busy, but it's a good crazy busy.  Hope everyone is well!
