You would be a great virtual host!

I shy away from all those mary kay "ish" sales paradigms. Especially that idiotic "it wraps" thing (or whatever it's called). 

I'm still not sure how that's even a thing.

I was just on FB while I finished lunch (Which, if I continue to eat mini snickers and iced mochas as my lunch, that tent style will be just what I need!) and they just announced halloween leggings have launched. I don't need halloween leggings, but dang! They have some serious marketing skills in that company (to create demand.)

I would like to try the dresses on in person to see the fit someday. I keep trying to win one in the multitude of contests for the dresses to try it that way! 

I love the azures. I need to get a good pair of boots so I can wear the plain leggings and azures to work this winter.

I'm only half LLR addicted.  I do love the leggings and patterns but I really only wear the crazy patterns at home, so I don't need that many (though I do love the black ones I have that I do wear out).  A lot of the styles are a bit too loose for my frame and I'm not good at belting but a couple of the dresses and skirts are a good fit for my body type.  The Randy top is nice too but there's only so many of similar style I'd want in my waredrobe.

This is me too, Lily. I have some fun patterned leggings that I wear at home. I have several skirts and tees that I love and love to wear to work. I can't figure out the dresses - I think I might look like I am wearing a tent because the styles look so loose and I am not a belt gal at all. I also have a couple of Randy's but you're right - how many baseball style jerseys is too many in a wardrobe? 

 

Hi Chatters :) PAV - hope your Dad heals quickly.

Agreed - that looks like a lovely place to spend time, Sparky. Pavvy - I hope that it's not too mucky at your Dad's. 

Nebi- that sounds busy. I hope the class goes well.

Hi chatters. 

I know this is so yesterday, but I agree on less usage of sunscreen unless it's between 10-2 right now. (And this from someone who has had multiple moh's surgeries for skin cancer.) We need our vitamin D!

I hope you all have fun things planned this weekend. If you don't, lie to me. I have to work both days. I hate event season.

It sounds like a lovely pursuit. If you ever find yourself back on that track, I would love to test out your recipe in my kitchen too ;)

I wish the fronts that passed through your area came east. We're still on water restrictions here. 

Do you have a recipe you use to make pumpkin cinnamon rolls, Pav? Mmm...

It's perfect fall weather here now.  Cold, crisp morning and evenings now and brilliant blue skies during the day.  It's going to turn cool during the day as well, which I'm not quite ready for.  Low 70's would be nice for a few weeks.

We're in kind of the same place. Although NOAA is saying we'll get 2 days of warmth again this week, with the nights dropping down. We need rain. Desperately still. 

I'm pretty sure our fall foliage is going to be less colorful this year.

I'm in a creative mode (writing a new application).

The only trouble for this is that while I'm in it, I don't eat properly. I keep popping KitKat or Reese's PB and drink tea while coding.

Incidentally, I chat more because every time I do a compile & check, I have around 40 seconds of idle time.

Minn - I want to work in your office :)

Thanks for the book ideas - DH is a literacy specialist and we both love to read, so we always try to encourage it elsewhere ;) If you all think that's a good gift, I'll stick with it. And good point about the ease of storage, Sparky. I didn't even think of being bored with certain books.

What a beautiful view Minn! 

Sparky - safe trip!

I need help chatters. I completely forgot we have to go to a first birthday party this weekend. What do I buy for a 1 year old girl who has an older sister (she's nearly 4) that would be a good gift? We usually get books but I thought I might branch out a bit...

Not sure it's safe to come in here today...

I hope you all feel better quickly.

I nearly murdered a slug man yesterday. He was in my face, yelling at me because he forgot to follow instructions and my calendar was full. How it's my fault that he never made an appointment for a final inspection is beyond my capacity to figure. And that was the start to my monday. It stayed at that crappy level all day.

Today, so far, has been better. *crosses fingers*

Kit kats would go a long way toward making today even more grand :D 

As inspector, you do have the upper hand though. You can make him suffer like a slug with lemon juice; or you can make him delirious like a slug with beer.

Minn - the imagery here is enough to make me smile about this today! I'm enjoying the cartoon version of this man being dunked in lemon juice or salted :P *evil daizy is out to play today*

Saw the picture of you and CyCy this morning. He's so handsome!

Sparky'd better watch out, Cy has the looks to be a heart breaker!

^ Right?! Those eyes!!

And Sparky - he was awful. He sat and stared at me while chewing off his fingernails (picture the cartoon eating of corn on the cob) in between bouts of yelling. I wish I was kidding. I had had approximately 1 ounce of coffee. It was NOT ENOUGH to deal. I may have elevated my voice in response.

During our department meeting, several people reported that they went to do flood relief and ran into people who, inspite of their flooded homes, pointed the relief teams to others who needed help more.

Cajun proud!

I imagine the area breeds people with strong spirits.  They've been through a lot!

Me too! (What Pav said.)

I've never been to Italy, but I imagine that many of the buildings (especially in the small towns) are ancient and not sturdy enough to withstand larger quakes. Scary!

The photos coming out of Italy are so sad. So much rubble. And the mayor of Amatrice says his town is no more:/
