Merry Merry and Quilty New Year!


I hope this has been a nice layed back Holiday Season for yall. Mine has had some up and downs, I am looking forward to the New Year. Job security is wavering right now but there is a glimmer of hope with a possible new opportunity for 2011. I didn't get alot of quilting done this year as I had hope but (in a Scarlett O'Hara voice) tomorrow will be another year.......
Beloved Monkey Boy got into a minor and I do mean MINOR accident earlier this week. He is ok, people in the other car are ok. Both cars are ok. He was following too close and did a little bump. The passenger in the other car said his back hurt, but moments later he was on his hands and knees checking to see if there was any damage to the bumper of the 2008 Mercedes. BMB took pictures with his Blackberry Phone of the man in that position and then asked him if he needed a ambulance *snicker* Upon seeing BMB and his phone camera, the man replied ' I don't think so now'. Ain't modern technology wonderful! Police came and took a report, no ticket was issued.
Speaking of BMB, I will be going to Manland to cook Xmas dinner. Not sure how many will be there, the menu will be very simple but very filling. Spiral cut, sugar cured Smithfield Ham, mac and cheese, green bean casserole and potato rolls and deviled eggs....YUM! Dessert will be chocolate chip cookies with ice cream. Sometimes simple is bestest!
Have a great day tomarrow, have fun, be safe and I will see yall after the new year! BMB's birthday is on the 29th of this month. He will be 29 years old. I am feeling very old right now. Before I go, I have a few words of wisdom about growing old:

Truths for us Old Farts

~I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

~Nothing is worse than the moment in an argument when you realize you're wrong.

~I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
~There is great need for a sarcasm font.
~How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
~Was learning cursive really necessary?

~Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

~Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
~I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

~Bad decisions make good stories.

~You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

~Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
~I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to the ten-page technical report I swear I did not make any changes to.

~I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

~I think the freezer deserves a light, as well.

~I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
~I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Construction" routing option.

~I have a hard time discerning the fine line between boredom and hunger.

~How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

~I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
~Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
~Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
~Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in less than 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

~The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.
