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'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.

Weekend plans: it's date night tonight!

I have several errands to run over the weekend, including taking my bike to the bike shop for tires and a general tune-up. With the bridge being out of commission and traffic sucking a fat one, I'm going to start biking to and from work.

Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning!

And in between the cleaning, the girls and I are getting our hairs cut on Saturday. I'm really excited because it has been almost a year since my last haircut. But then we're also going to have to deal with Nunu's hair, which due to a lack of attention to it on our parts over the summer has started to dread (she's started looking a little too much like Sideshow Bob, imo). She does not want dreads, so Miss Sandy will have a nice challenge cutting as much of them out as she can while still leaving Nunu with relatively long hair. Lulu's hair will be easy, so it will make up for Nunu's, I hope. Must remember to get cash for a big tip...

And then more cleaning on Sunday, with a Nutcracker on Ice rehearsal thrown in for good measure.
