Welcome all, to Fiesta Friday! Can't Post

Welcome, TORNsibs, to our weekly Fiesta Friday celebration!

What a week it was! THe 10th Anniversary bash was fabulous, some very important VIPs chimed in and/or sent their wishes (check out this late arrival) Smile, we had some amazing and fun threads on every board and a good time was had by everyone. Laugh If you haven't checked out the WETA birthday card and birthday song, you must! Oh, and we got quite a few new members in the past week, so welcome to all!

Thanks again to all the organizers!

Now, it's time to kick back and tell us how your week went, what you have planned for the weekend, or both! Tomorrow, BG and I are going to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary! Three wonderful years that came about all because of KiKn and TORn. Smile

Oh, and since I'm swamped with work today this will be a self-serve Fiesta unless someone want to jump behind the bar and serve a few.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

I'm still trying to catch up [In reply to] Can't Post

but it's been a very busy week for me, mostly involving a lot of driving here, there and everywhere. I'll just hop behind the bar and help myself to a hard lemonade to go.

But it's been pretty nice weather-wise, and I have most of my garden planted, and I'm working on my flower boxes right now. Not to mention cutting the grass, which grows almost visibly in the spring. Although I was sorry to cut all the little daisies, but they'll come back!

Happy May Day! [In reply to] Can't Post

(where is everyone?)

It's sunny and I'll pretend it's warm (current temp is: 54 F). My son was off before dawn to dance the sun up. I slept in but will find some way to enjoy the most joyous of holidays, May Day.

If I could have a spicy (but non alcoholic) ginger beer please?

Wow, three years already! [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember that beautiful wedding reception like it was yesterday. :-)

I celebrated May Day by sneaking a May basket onto the desk of the secretary who aways has chocolate for everyone. I think it's mostly a lost tradition, but when I was a kid we used to make May baskets by folding a cootie catcher and attaching a paper handle. We used to fill them with candy and flowers, put them on the neighbors' porches, ring the bell, and run away. The tradition was if the recipient caught you as you were running away, they could kiss you. My dad remembers doing that as a child too, but the tradition died out when I was a teen and I don't think it's done anymore. We didn't teach it to our kids, because we weren't sure how the neighbors would receive it.

So, in honor of a lovely rainy May Day, I'll help myself to a nice hot chocolate.

Hey, Altaira! :)

*Whew!* Had some work to do on my site first, but I got here ASAWHP (As Soon As Was Humanly Possible). :D

And another *whew!* is that I'm still looking through the 10th Anniversary stuff :D -- what a great celebration!!! (And congratulations to you and BG too, Altaira, on your own anniversary! :) )

*gets Spring Usual* I hope you all have a great weekend, everyone! :)

Cheers Altaira and all my sibbies! [In reply to] Can't Post

What a flurry! I don't think we've shaken the rafters like that for eons! I'm desperately trying to get to all of the threads, and am determined to do just that...even if they've fallen off the page! I still drink in the excitement of such a fabulous milestone, and I love that our Founders really know how much we adore them. *makes ooogie face* They're the best!

I'm also celebrating what I hope will be a wise choice. I've *gulp* just now ordered high-speed internet for my home at what *gulp* I hope will be a monthly rate I can afford. After sitting for 14 minutes at 4:45 this morning to log into TORn... I'd had enough. Beside, the dialup through my workplace that was free is going to have its plug pulled mid-May (couple of weeks), so doors are closing and doors are opening to what I think will be a doable deed. Needless to say, to get into the internet at home without being burdened with loading woes is thrilling to me beyond squeeee!!

So here's to 10 years + 1 week and to all of you. All be speeding your way in no time... once the satellite shows up and I climb onto the roof ;)

HUGGLES! *grabs pink lemonade* Have a great weekend everyone!

Once you use high speed... [In reply to] Can't Post

You'll never look back. When we were cutting all fat from our budget, the high speed internet wasn't even considered. I would hold onto that before a phone, I think. I mean... I use the phone about 5 times a month, these days. And 75% of the time I answer it... it's telemarketing.

Life will never be the same!

cheers all.

Happy anniversary! [In reply to] Can't Post

Your third??? Time flies when you're having fun, doesn't it? Cool

I'll have a celebratory cup of coffee, with an extra dash of caffeine. I'm still staying up way too late playing LOTRO. Obviously at heart I'm a 17-year-old boy...

I forgot to wear my step counter yesterday, so I walked extra hard to make sure I had my 10,000 steps for the day. I probably walked at least 14,000, but only gave myself credit for 10,000. *sigh*

Have a great weekend, all!

A misty, rainy day here - perfect for hot cocoa. *looks in 'fridge* Ah, good, whipped cream to top it off!

*raises mug* Here's to many more happy years together!

This has been a too-busy work week, and no rest this weekend with workshops and digital piano group rehearsals and performances. And catching up with all these posts from last weekend - I get the feeling that's what most of us will be doing! Laugh

That was a most marvellous celebration! Smile Maybe we should do it again...

It seems like my hangover from the last party just ended, LOL! [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy anniversary! And, hey, UT and I just had our fourth wedding anniversary a little over a week ago! Unfortunately, *I* forgot the date and made travel plans to visit my mom. We spent most of the big day in airports and on the plane Ė Argh! Then the actual visiting of my cranky mom/UTís mother-in-law and helping her with home repairs Ė not a romantic weekend, LOL! We did go out for KFC for lunch one dayÖ. :D (Well, okay, we did celebrate over the weekend before the trip. Had a lovely Italian meal at one of our favorite restaurants. But it makes a better story, talking about our suffering.)

*mixes dirty Stoli martini and muses on the upcoming weekend*

I think Iíll spend much of it calling old friends and relatives. UT and I recently got rid of our land line and now use cell phones exclusively. Need to give everyone the number, and itíll be lots of fun catching up with them.

Happy celebrating, Altaira! I hope itís wonderfully romantic!

I'll pour myself some virtual champagne to celebrate. And to toast everyone who put on the marvelous celebration of last week. Whew! What a party! All we needed was a fireworks dragon erupting from each of our computers, swooping low, and then disappearing over Bywater.

Have a peaceful and healthy weekend, y'all!

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

Hi, dernwyn! :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Not yet-- it's technically "in" the budget, but I don't know when exactly we're going to be able to buy it. (We're hoping within the next month or so; but we'll have to see.)

At any rate, we have managed to work it out (at least these past couple of weeks :) ) so that I can have the use of our current machine on Fridays, for which I am grateful! :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, dernwyn! :)
