No, he knew her well enough. It was a small company. Like I said. She was young and the idea of writing your own letter of recommendation likely did not fit the image she had of someone writing how THEY really felt about you as an employee. I attribute it to naivete.

one of my cousins works for a large food service comapny that does school lunch services. one of "his" school's lunch ladies took up a collection for him... that is blowing his mind, and boggles mine. I think the thoguht behind it was that they all chipped in for transportation for him to get here for the funeral. these ladies make just a little over minimum wage, so each dollar is precious to htem.

but then, the lunch ladies also took up a collection for him to go to a major concert in antoher city, so we kinda don't get that. maybe on that one they were living vicariously... or driving a couple counties over is "traveling"... <shrug>

wonder who wrote it... the old man, good friend or family member...

love the idea of "never losing a game of competetive sickness", "fashion house Fruit of the Loom," and his elastic waist shorts worn over the navel.

and i thoguht that my grandparents would get irked at how long my gramma's obit was, given that we listed a lot of descendents... only my parents & aunt/uncle were listed by name, the rest of us were lumped in by generation,...

I'm told by the news reporter that his daughter wrote it.

The more poor you are, the more people who will give money to help pay for the funeral, even if its just a few bucks.

Yeah, I really do! Started a couple years ago, now I play 3-4 times a week. It's a blast, but I am not a formidable force against most of the people out there. It's a no checking league, but accidents happen.
Not my leg, it's just going to be my whole neck/spine area. Didn't hit my head, so that was good.

"It's a no checking league, but accidents happen" ... yeah like accidentally on purpose! lol

NIck took his (very small) 6yo to hockey practice last weekend. Nick said the coach's first words: "Alex, no checking!" Heh.(He gets away with it b/c he's so tiny.)

Hockey fans: Check out last night's Wild-Ducks game. Souter got a CRAZY on-purpose elbow to the head, out with a concussion, the other guy got a 5 minute major, kicked out of the game, and he'll get a suspension from the league as well.

Another wake for a friend's father tomorrow night. This makes 3 in one week. This sh!t can stop for a while.

I need some online distractions today - this is a "just for the next 5 minutes" kind of day. What do you guys have for me?

This morning I woke up thinking it's Friday. I don't know why this week is draaaaagging.

I think I have a hair stuck to the inside of my sweater and it's tickling my upper stomach.

Last night my friend A and I attempted to go to the World Baseball Classic in Miami but traffic sucked so bad that we gave up and went to the Hard Rock instead. We sat at an outdoor bar and had a couple of appetizers and one drink each (home by 11:30!) and there was a foursome at a table about 20 feet away from us passing a joint like we're in Denver or something. Balls!

My MIL purchased the girls' easter dresses yesterday. I had in mind the big poofy-skirt kind in some pastel. They came home with what my mother would describe as hooker-inspired dresses (it's so sad that I can hear her saying that in my head). They aren't really *that* bad, but the styling is more grown-up than what I might have chosen.

I think it's the purple leopard print that has me upset. I'm just not seeing that as easter-y, yanno?

I am having trouble adjusting to the spring ahead thing. My body likes to wake up @7 every day, and it does not understand that 7 is now 8.

I am on a soft boiled egg for breakfast kick. Have 1 jumbo egg soft boiled then I cut it up on a slice of toast. Mmmm the semi cooked yolk is delish.

I want to be the hair stuck in JMW's sweater.

Very last-minute, and we were only there for an hour.

If you had Facebook, you would've seen our check-in though!

I have no idea what your check-in is, but I am thinking of having my daughter set me up on FB when she comes down.
