Not sure of the exact recipe SIL uses for mashed cauliflower, but this is close. Plus, add a ton of garlic. http://www.inspiredtaste.net/19731/simple-cre...
I am printing it out for some people. Awesome!

Speaking of dumpy condos... I have completely been a real lazy slug around the house the last couple of weeks. The cats have run out of clean dishes to eat off of, so they're eating out of a combination of dirty, crusty cat bowls, and my own clean ones. I have no clean forks. There is a tub in the sink full of cat food dishes and cold dishwater. From Sunday or Monday night, I forget which. I have lean cuisine boxes lying all over the place, including the floor (you can get codes from the inside, register them, and earn free stuff, I choose the household items and will donate them to a shelter). I have shoes everywhere. I have some weird old hamburger (raw) in the fridge (double bagged – sorry Mr. Cow, you died for nothing, my bad).

You should see the hair and dust behind my bathroom door.(Or maybe you shouldn't.)

This morning, charged and synced my ipod, so when I get home tonight, I can leave the TV off and immediately start cleaning. Two hours should accomplish a lot.

I did laugh, it was an excellent zinger, but we have that whole hate/hate relationship thing.

Never heard Sam complain about money, either. Maybe people buy HER drinks.(shrug)

I can cut the sexual tension between the two of you with a meat cleaver.

I could probably cut it with a chainsaw. Maybe. If it had a new blade.:D

Oh! Sam! Tsk, tsk!:D

Okay I have to tell you. NOT making this up. The numbers to post -- 6666.
Coincidence? I think not.

So Just as was at the top of the page posting on the "new replies" thing, I caught just a bit of an ad to the right of the page. Picture of a beaver, and it said "A clean beaver..."

I assume it has to do with protecting water or it's a pro-oil company ad, but I want to see the rest!

Crazy Just Got To Another Level

(I am handling a sales order with a customer. An older lady taps me on the shoulder.)

Customer:“I can’t find your elevator anywhere!”

Me:“It’s a one story building. I am afraid we don’t have one.”

Customer:“That’s horrible! My knees are so bad! I just can’t handle the stairs!”

Me:“We… don’t have stairs.”

(As I am replying, she has turned and walked away. About a week later, I get a call…)

State Employee:“I am calling to investigate a complaint we received that your store is violating ADA. Is it true you don’t have an elevator?”

Me:“Yes. I don’t have a second floor or stairs either.”

State Employee:“So, I just file this under ‘crazy’… gotcha.”

Yeah, and don't be afraid to use that chainsaw either! Hell, get a wood chipper if need to.

So for everyone who is sitting with baited breath waiting my update for the day...

Niece didn't get fired, but just BARELY. She so needs to be nicer and less impatient with people, AND look for a different job and not make excuses not to because next time she WILL be fired.

My sister is already in Portland, so I have about three hours of (semi) sanity left.

<sigh>

I'm here for you Mimi! If you need to talk dirty to somebody, just lay it on me. I can take it!
No, really please, talk dirty to me.
Well, only if it will make you feel better.
It would wouldn't it?
Hey, yaneverknow!

There should be judging icons for "desperate" and "horny."

Aw, thank you :)

I am on the verge of running away and hiding in a hotel room with a supply of key lime pie and JD for a week. Ry has been sick for 5 days and he needs to go back to school tomorrow, to save both of our sanity.

My MIL is back to her normal drama-filled self, except that we are still feeling like we need to be sympathetic because it hasn't even been a month since my FIL died. We were invited to my husband's Aunt's house for Good Friday (anything Easter related is a huge deal to Polosh people). I asked if she had talked to MIL about it and she said yes, so I accepted. Turns out she said something 2days after FIL died and MIL doesn't want to go because it would be "too much work" for her (I guess she feels the need to bring homemade food like pierogies to her sister's house?). She said that if we want to go we can, but we only said yes because we thought she was going! They are in the middle of some fight that has nothing to do with our generation and life is too short for this crap.

On the bright side, soccer and tball seasons have started :) I love watching the kiddos run around.
