CRAP CRAP CRAP... I missed the party the other night. I can't believe it. It must have been a school nite or some lame excuse for me to miss such a fun party. Hell, it was my payweek, I would have gladly brought the $1 bills, maybe even a few $1 coins just to see what the strippers would do to keep them.
Maybe it can start up again this evening. I'd be glad to add some vodka to my protein shake and pass around shots...anyone? Heck, I'll even bring my guitar and we can sing some raunchy songs to get it going.

Hi--I'm going to be offline most of this weekend because I am working through the ETL health plan with family, but I do want to stop by to say again how very impressed I am with your accomplishments.

I read your page with great interest, loved your story and find it a perfectly rational explanation for why you've been chosen a Spark motivator. And what you say here only increases my respect for you. I LOVE that you fought dirty; I LOVE that you admit that without reservation.

Good for you. And I say again, your DH is very, very lucky to have you in his life.

Take care. I'll be here only intermittently until Monday, so have a great, great weekend.

I was shocked and upset at the time, WATERDIAMOND. The humor was there, even when I wanted to murder him. I made it very clear to him that I was very hurt. We've laughed together during a lot of difficult situations. That has just always been part of our relationship. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I fought dirty and the girlfriend couldn't hang.

My word, you have a marvelous sense of humor. I don't know if you were cool at the time this happened, but you certainly have a great perspective on it now.

Congrats on your upcoming anniversary. Your DH is a lucky man.

I'll look for you LALA, the next time I'm in DENNY'S late night OBNOXIOUS section. Thanks for confirming my suspicions about our badness, SUSAN.
emoticon emoticon

Here's my DENNY'S story. Years ago during my DH's mid-life crisis, when he had just told me that he loved both me AND a girlfriend, we were mulling over the menu. The waitress wanted to know what he wanted, and he was undecided between two menu items that looked good to him. I told the waitress, "He will have both, thanks."

We are still together. Just us. No girlfriend. 50th anniversary coming Sept 1. Could have done without that whole mid-life thing, but we grew from the experience. In life, stuff happens.

Those strippers work fast, ALTO. Wham, bam, and they are gone, with $20 bills dripping from their "thing-holders", not a G-string, if it's a male, is it? And they scarfed down most of our pizza. What a rip!
emoticon
Beer's gone, too. They were thirsty.

I think this is the party "aftermath". When the strippers split, so did most of the party-ers. Maybe they'll be back in the morning. You can never tell.

It was a fun party and didn't get too out of hand. The LAW was not called this time.
It's nice that we are growing our own lawyers here. You guys keep lifting those law books. LMB and NAOMI. This team will need representation sooner or later.

I see it in the stars.
emoticon

Does an all-night party cause any of the rest of you to crave eggs and toast?
emoticon emoticon
I guess it's because we used to stop on our way home at George Webb's all-night restaurants. I think tonight I'll just take a snooze. (Wow--a lifestyle change)
emoticon
Wake me if something good happens.

Well, at least you have your priorities straight, JOY-CEE!
If we conducted a poll, to determine who was looking at the pizza and who was looking at the stippers, I'll bet the pizza would win.

GRYPHON, I know it isn't funny when you are in pain. Enjoy that Advil and ice.

BUT, my strange DH and I always laugh about misery. "Might as well, can't dance.", the punch line to a joke that I have forgotten, seems appropriate. Whoopsie! That, too, was a tactless, unfortunate reminder of your foot. It's the thought that counts.
emoticon
Anyway, your observation, "Maybe someone praying for the one ankle caused the other one, because god got confused which one was supposed to be hurt...LOL.", reminded me that the DH and I always laugh about the faith healer who was faced with the problem of a person having one hand all gnarled and misshapen and the other with nothing amiss. He kept on and on exhorting the almighty to "make this one hand just like the other".

Well, YINZ know what happened, I'm sure. Dude ended up with two misshapen hands.

Ooh! I love our new team glassware. Goblets of gold! Who brought those? Ah, it was you, ELBALL. Thanks! Can we keep them?

THINLADY, you reminded me of the time, many years ago, when I was a newly-wed. The honeymoon was over, and we were settling into married life and reality. I was learning to cook, and the DH asked, "What is this?" I told him to eat it and guess.

Your comment: "I brought some drinks... you can decide for yourself what they are."

Finally got back in here. I was hit by a garbage truck while escorting the strippers across the street. Whew! (In other words, I was dragged away from my computer.)

Hand me some of those encyclopedia weights. I feel weak, after crawling up the stairs past all of the dragons that guard the entrance to our team. I need to regain my power.
emoticon

BTW, the emoticon deficiency is worse than we thought, GRYPHON. Do you know I couldn't even find a cross?

LALA, you kill me. You can't drink because you took Xanax. A good problem to have, right?
emoticon

SUSAN, do you think we're being a bad influence on WATERDIAMOND? Being so rowdy on the first day she's here? I need an opinion from a stable person.. ELECTROLYTE and KURTORTOISE can sometimes be responsible adults. They can help you decide.

Party on!

Rocking out to Aerosmith is a great way to keep the party going. I'm home now, mainlining advil and icing the margarita mix in the freezer for later. So here's my contribution to the party:

P.S. I think the emoticon list has serious deficiencies in drink options. Even Skype has beer and martini emoticons. Maybe this is related to the religious ones not approving!?!?

I could use a party this afternoon! And a few less people saying "I'll pray for you" after I posted on FB that I rolled my foot a week after rolling the other ankle so I'm limping like a wounded dog today.

When someone "out there" says "I'll pray for you", once too often, we can reduce potential stress by smiling and secretly thinking, "Yes, thank you, and I will lift some Bibles for YOU."

I join the others in a big "thank the Lord you found us"! I'm up and at 'em, lifting those Bibles to stay fit.

As you meet others on the team, your smile will get bigger.

It's a great group of diverse folk, who are into tolerance more than making a "show" of our nearness to a Supreme Being and reliance upon that Supreme Whatever for every little thing. We're here to befriend one another so that we don't feel like the weight loss and maintenance issue is a lost cause.

Welcome! We love you already. Make yourself at home in our little refuge.

"What are you doing, lifting Bibles?" That is great, made me laugh at the end of a very long Monday!

Welcome to the refuge, as I like to think of it. When I get too many of the "He's helped me lose a pound" blog posts, I need a place to go to!

I'm located in Pacific Daylight Time.

Thank you, Zugasaurus.

BTW, I laughed out loud at your "thought." It's nice that we have a forum in which you can offer that kind of humor freely.

Haha, I'm with you there! Whenever I see someone say, "with Jesus I will lose weight," I think, "What are you doing, lifting Bibles?? You found a great team; we'll be there for you!

As it appears may be true for many of you, I am grateful to have found a team that does not espouse a religious solution to health/weight-loss issues. Although I understand how important such support is to some, I'd like to reach my goals with support from people.
