    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Funny story - yesterday two girls left a big orange bucket underwater where they had been hunting for salamanders. When they headed out of the water, I kindly told them they had forgotten it and they said they were afraid to get it because there was a baby's head near it. After more alarmed questioning they said it was actually a doll's head but they were afraid of it. I sent some other girls to get the bucket and they came back screaming, too. Finally a dad went and got it and gave it to me after chasing them around with it a while. It is my new mascot - The Girl Who Threw Sand. It has eyelids that open and close, some hair, but not much, 4 different colors all mottled. I keep her on my armrest.
    Count your blessings!

    You need to seek professional help, Gut.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Hmmm she doesn't seem so bad to me, considering I was thinking she should tie some string around the hair and dangle it like a shrunken head.

    OK, now I have the mental image of her, the umbrella and the head all toppling to the sand and being blown down the beach like an out of control Mary Poppins.

    So, I took today off from work so I could have a nice, relaxing 3-day weekend. Was going to wake up late today, stay in my pajamas for a while, and then perhaps get some errands done etc. But that's not how it's gone. I heard a "boom" coming from our fridge this morning. I was hoping it was just the ice dispenser unloading a ton of ice...Nope. My bottle of cranberry juice had freaking EXPLODED in the fridge. I have no idea why--our fridge isn't set extra cold or anything so I don't think it froze...or maybe it did. Anyhow, by the time I got down there, the inside of my fridge looked like a Tarantino movie. There was red goo dripping ALL OVER. It took me over 2 hours to take everything out, wash the shelves, dry everything, rinse off all the bottles/containers etc. that were covered in red... Sheesh. I would've been better off at work today...although then I would've had this waiting for me when I returned back home... I guess the upside is my fridge is sparkling clean again now...sigh.

    Oh, what a mess! But better that than the experience I had once. I went on vacation for two weeks - to Hawaii. When I came home, I found that the refrigerator died (apparently very soon after I left home). All the meat in the freezer had defrosted, and the blood ran all down into the refrigerator. It smelled so bad, you wouldn't have believed it. It was the grossest thing ever!

    So count your blessings, Lois Lane! It can always be worse.
