Everything I ever wanted to know about Lee but was afraid to ask. We share an affinity for chocolate and coffee, but of course I knew that. I must say I'm intrigued by what' s in your back seat. Is that some kind of fetish? Was the lap dancer also into the empty sleeves of plastic name holders with clips?

And keep up that "bad word" unforgiving spirit!

murat11 said...

Well done, Lee. Hope you hydrated sufficiently, or at least ate some Belgian Chocolate.

7. Home birth: that's way cool.
13. I think a chocolate theme seems to be developing here.
16. Now, that's a sport.
34. The 7s seem to have it.
35. I'm not sure that mix is legal. That's high octane.
37. If before they were famous counts, then we're all famous. I like that. Actually, I may be in my post-famous phase. Fame retired.
42. The imaginations are there: standardized testing, no child left behind are closing them. (This is not directed at scorers, Lee. We all need to eat.)

Lee said...

LOL Hi San! The plastic name tag sleeves are from a friend. I never remember to take them out and give them to the person they are supposed to go to. Oops!

As for the lap dancer, well, besides his fantastic buns he had me hand over my glasses when I stood at the edge of the stage. Guess where he hung them?


Lee said...

Thanks, Paschal! If coffee counts as hydration then I had plenty. :) Belgin chocolate is on the shopping list after the paycheck with overtime comes in. Yay for working on Saturdays!

Per 35. Dottie was a love. She talked to us. Learned how to smile. And knew how to look at you and say clearly, "Some fun huh?" She was great with kids of all ages too. Her favorite treat was doggie chocolate. I miss her.

And about 47: Yes, I know. I just read way too many with the same answers or whines. Today was much better. We got a batch where there were a lot of higher level tests. Of course with the higher level also comes the worse things. I sent one test to the authorities because the answer included 3 alerts. Hope the kid is ok.

Don't know his name but I'd appreciate it if you crossed your hands in prayer for him.


Cath said...

Wow what a marathon! Thanks for sharing that. I share the love of chocolate with you. Mmmmm.

Great meme.

Lee said...

Thanks for visiting, Cath. Feel free to join in on this marathon meme. :)


Pappy said...

Thanks for coming by the Valley this morning. Glad it brought back memories. Come by anytime.

Sandi McBride said...

NUKING COFFEE? Girl, that's just wrong in so many ways, it'd take days to tell you why...and chocolate in bed? Now that's just decadent! Course, not as decadent as the lap dance. What where you thinking? Apparently not much since you didn't get his phone number, you hedonist you, lol

Lee said...

LOL Sandi, I am indeed somewhat of a hedonist. Thank you! I like things easy, comfortable, and relaxed, and decadent!

As to nuking coffee...sorry, but Consumer's Reports told us a long time ago that a coffee pot makes the best coffee when you do a full pot. Now how am I supposed to live with substandard coffee and waste filters when I can make a full pot and put the left overs in the fridge? (WEG)


david mcmahon said...

I made you smile? You just put a huge grin on my face!

Lee said...

Well you just keep on grinning, David! Nothing beats mutual smiles between friends!

Hope all is well Lee. Haven't seen an update here for a long time ...
