A Gift From Heaven?

Image
I may have mentioned in a post or two before that I love the greasy goodness of Denny's Restaurants.  I firmly believe the Grand Slam is a gift from a greater being.
The downside of my love affair with Denny's is that they are only located in the United States and the only opportunities I get to enjoy them is when I happen to travel across the border.
Imagine my surprise when I was on my way home this evening from London, Ontario (a mere 40 minutes away) and off in the distance, I spot a yellow glow.  As I squinted to focus in on the beacon of brightness, I slowly begin to comprehend what is before my eyes...

I couldn't believe my eyes - there it was - at a truck stop along the highway.  A truck stop that I drive by a few times a month.  I started to squeal (yes squeal) and point.  J couldn't figure out what my problem was until his gaze followed my finger.   
"Holy hell, you're going to be 400 lbs" was his response.  Some would say those would be fighting wo…

With The Boy out of the house and time on your hands, J and I  have decided to purchase season tickets for the Toronto Rock Lacrosse games.  Should be fun...

Lacrosse is a game of skill, bravery and a little bit of insanity – o.k. maybe a lot of insanity. I haven’t taken the time to learn the rules of the game, but I have gathered that the beating of each other with sticks is totally acceptable; however if a player decides to use his fist and punch someone – that action is cause for a penalty (but using your stick to bludgeon someone across the head is o.k.).

Caution - Bad Mood Ahead...

Image
Saying I woke up on the wrong side of the bed would be an understatement.  My mood says I woke up under the bed, with the dust bunnies.
I'm cranky bitchy.  
Don't ask me why.  Who the hell knows.  Who the hell cares.  I know it and I'm dealing with it (in my own way). 
My mother used to say if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.  So with that little tidbit, I leave you with this (it made me smile - yesterday).   

Weekend Re-Cap...

Would You Wear This???

Yeah - me neither, but someone here at work (of the male gender - on the management team) is wearing one similar to the beautiful one on the right...no joking...
Normally, I don't make fun of my co-workers (ha, I couldn't type that without laughing out loud), but when an opportunity presents itself - I'm opportunistic.
Only 22 more days until I'm away from this madness.
