Done.

They called one group, then announced a special group for a trial lasting 20 days (more or less) starting April 18th. Anyone self-employed or where the employer didn't pay for those days would be excused. They could leave, and just call in the night before to make sure they needed to still come in then. Not me! Whew!


Lunch, then around 2:30, she announced two groups "G" and "O". She called the roll for both groups. You should be able to guess where this was going. GO home.


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

Don't forget that anything over 10, he has to take his shoes off. And if he is tired, then he guesses at the number.

That, or he got into the saké early.

Wine storage offer today reminded me to see if any of you knew about this one?
Air Cork.
My friend has it and likes it. Seems pretty fool proof. And since it is not a vacuum, no pressure leaks.

there was a show about the next big kitchen gadget and this won funding on it. GREAT idea!

i wonder if you could explode the bottle by filling the balloon too much or if the balloon would burst first? experiment time!

I wholeheartedly agree. If I could have a wedding pie instead of a wedding cake, I would.

We did not have wedding cake. We had a chocolate fountain. And a viennese table, which incidentally had mini pies and tarts.

How could she not flip out when you didn't love her enough to spend $500 on cupcakes?! ;)

You don't want to start the overpriced wedding stuff discussion, it just gets depressing for everyone who isn't a wedding vendor.

For how many? We got either 200 or 220 and it was just under $400. Either way, $2 or less per person, which is cheaper than cake. Most cake places charge $3.50 per slice these days if not significantly more.

I was very happy with the price. Though her grandpa didn't like our choice and decided to throw a fit and said if we had gotten a cake he was planning on paying for it. His fault for telling us that AFTER the fact.

Not feeding me makes me angry, so I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to feed me. I"m sure there was a reason for this one way back probably a few years ago, but I don't remember what it was
