Can't remember if I posted this here or on FB. I am not an official member of this organization, but they most closely align to my positions within the Republican Party. I love knowing that there are other non-crazies in the Party :)

15/50 = 3333.It is 33.33% of the states.

Late night math.

math is not your strong suit. Didn't edogg already jump on you once for misreporting that %?

15 out of 50 is 30%

That's twice now she's made that mistake. I think Mimi just doesn't know how many states there are.

Ok guys…..I suck at math. Got it! Sheesh…. ;-)

Also, it was late, not sure what numbers I was calculating, I'd had a 15 hour day. Dudes…

Interestingly enough this is a really easy equation. I mean really simple: smaller number/larger number = percentage. Voila. I almost always get it right. IDK why I get it wrong HERE.

It makes me sad that we're still only "almost half" in the year 2013, but at least we're getting closer! Take the small victories where you can--go Hawaii!

It's Friday morning. Moon, Pixx (Hi Pixx!) and Mimi all have the same avatar. Even with coffee I am confused.

Well, in your defense, if you only count the lower 48, then disregard Florida, and Missouri, then count Illinois twice, then yeah, that's pretty close to half.

Okay, this got a legitimate LOL.

Which I needed, after finding out this morning that a co-worker's husband passed away suddenly last night. The co-worker isn't someone I'm close to, but I see her every day. Bad news, please stop....

Right? Had to join in. I just changed mine. It's not quite the same but in the same vein. Let me know when it shows up if you wouldn't mind.

Yeah, we just found out this morning someone here died; he was ill but not many people knew it so it was a little shocking (I did, but I'm in HR). He was an IT guy, so he had contact with lots of folks though most of us didn't know him very well (including me).

Makes one count one's blessings...

I'm so sorry to hear that! Will say a prayer for your coworker and her family.

Weekend plans?
Got a buddy coming down from NY, have not seen him in years, but a very good friend. So will probably spend the weekend trying to keep a hang over at bay by drinking. Monday is going to be a very tough day.
