Okay, and for the record, this should have posted on Monday - today is Wednesday. Sometimes computers just don't work the way you want them to. And no, it is not "operator error".
Yes, still have lots to blog, but no time this week. That's why I'm hoping to appease my huge reading public with a meme so they can have plenty to laugh at me about until I can find time in my busy, busy life to blog appropriately!

Thanks for the laughs, Jewel. How can you NOT be your own friend. Everyone who knows you loves you. You are a great friend. You are charming, bright, witty, intelligent and you make mean pancakes. (How's the flattery working?)

awww jennifer's a sweet heart, and i do think your sarcasm has put a damper on your eligibility for particular employment opportunities, but what kind of boring environment would you be working in...

(if it makes you feel any better, the only way i would be my own friends with myself is...well see now i don't know that...)

and your country bears crap is not redeemed, bleh
