*looks around, unlocks doors* Welcome to Friday Fiesta! Can't Post

Fiesta Friday Founders Day Preview Special [In reply to] Can't Post

What could be more fun than Fiesta Friday? A Founders’ Day Fiesta Friday!

Next weekend we celebrate Founders’ Day, TORn’s official holiday, which commemorates the founding of this most remarkable site.

And this year we have a Very Special Celebration, TORn will be *15* years old. An excellent reason to get together to eat, drink, be Merry, and have a blast!



Events will kick off with a Special Founders’ Day Fiesta next Friday, April 25 and continue on into the wee hours of Saturday, April 26.

Lots of fun and games are planned - please stop by and enjoy the party! The larder is stocked...



The cooks are busily preparing the feast…



There will be goodies aplenty…



So come and raise a mug with your fellow TORnfolks, it will be a Party of Special Magnificence!

I was called into a meeting at the worst possible time. Shocked And, it was a l-o-o-o-o-ng meeting. Frown

Thanks, Evy (and dernwyn via email) for begin on top of it!

Another weekend of work, work, work for me. I think I'll have a double single malt scotch on the rocks to settle my nerves. Laugh

Happy weekend, everyone!

Oh, no! [In reply to] Can't Post

Are you sure you don't need a "triple"? It sounds like they're putting you to the grindstone!

I hope you're able to find some time to relax this weekend. Any snow left out there?

Almost forgot... [In reply to] Can't Post

...to order! I'll just have some coffee with a bit of cocoa powder and milk, please, Evey.

Hubby had minor knee surgery yesterday, to repair a torn meniscus tendon, so I have to make sure he "behaves" and uses crutches when standing. (When he can stand - the percoset leaves him rather woozy!) Doctor said all looks good!

Everyone seemed to think it went really well. Smile Tonight is closing night. Once more with feeling!

Apparently my Judas is creepy. Can you believe it?!

What's funny [In reply to] Can't Post

He's been hoping he's not doing well enough on Monday to go back to work, so he can watch the Boston Marathon when it's being televised.

The nurse told me that as he was coming out of the anesthetic, he told them he was going to be running in the Boston Marathon on Monday! They told him, "we don't think so..." Laugh

Yep [In reply to] Can't Post

Boil eggs and decorate them all day tomorrow. Put them out Sunday morning and release the kids. Always do an egg count first as I hate finding a missing one in August...

You doing anything Easterling this year?
