Thanks for the kind words folks. 20yrs is a long time to hang with an animal, and I will always have a cold spot on my bed where she used to keep it warm. She was a cats cat.
My condolences.:-( That's a nice long life.

That's the buzz. I think they play AZ tomorrow... I can't remember. I've been maneuvering around ESPN trucks/vans and people building crap for tomorrow all week so I'm kind of annoyed. School is about EDUCATION not football. They're letting people in starting at 3 AM!!!! Yeah, not.
No. Not AZ.#2 in the nation Oregon is coming to town. Its the marquee game of the week. ESPN College Gameday is live from Husky Stadium

I love it. 99.9% of the comments are telling this guy he's nuts and shorts are the way to go.

How soon do you need to get them out? Most of the online places do fine work and they have pretty quick turnarounds. It may be slightly less expensive to DIY (check Target for cute and affordable options), but it will be easier on your hand if you order them preprinted (depending on how many invites you are sending).
probably the next week or so... have to check with the mom-to-be, but i'm hoping to do this by thanksgiving. want to avoid the holidays, and the potentially crappy driving weather; MTB is about 2 hours away.

i think i'm one of a committee, so maybe i'll just let someone else take care of this part...

i'm helping give a baby shower... my BFF, at the age of nearly 40, has gotten pregnant again - her youngest is 13 (!!!!)... i'm looking for paper invitations... any suggestions for where to look? Also, is it just as cheap to order printed ones from somewhere as it is to go to hallmark and get the pack of cards to handwrite?
If you are willing to drive into Wilmette, Yellow Bird in Plaza del Lago has nice things that are different from Hallmark. You might also looks at MITE Printing in downtown Glencoe on Park just west of Green Bay, just across from teh library. I have used them

Ewww...did it hurt? Do you get to go home today?
The local pain shots hurt, and while the process itself wasn't painful, the finishing of it was CREEPY FEELING. And then a dull ache as the lung expanded back to its proper size.

I've had some pretty bad pain this week... but it was always temporary (like... 15 minutes) and not THAT bad (i can use my imagination). It also seems sometimes to be anxiety-driven, rather than "pain caused by something done here."

Sorry about your cat, Race! but 20 years? You did something right, you can be sure of that. You're a damn fine pet owner.

baby shower invites: I think Party City (or similar places) are the cheapest places to go.

You have been here late at night this past week or so. Have you turned into a night owl permanently?

Are you going to look for work at all over the holidays?

How are Nick and the boys doing?

What an awesome idea!!!
Thanks! Someone online suggested 2 bags worn like a sandwich board and tied together at the neck and thighs. The nutritional value chart goes on the back one.
Plus it can be lifted off and on easier. I'd have to drive to work and assemble, lol.

Yeah, I figured it out. Moot at this point though. Very disappointed in the game, but not surprised. The big deal about the whole thing was that ESPN was at UW. Not that I care about football or anything. I am a way too serious scholar for that stuff.(_)

Woo hoo! One step closer. Washington didn't help me out, but Utah did. Knocked Stanford out from in front of us. Now just gotta hope Stanford takes out Oregon.

They were trading goats. Michigan's kicker missed 2 game winners and got one blocked. But on the other side,#8 dropped 2 catchable balls in the end zone AND I'm pretty sure he's the one that fumbled in OT. Those 2 did what they could to give it away.
