<p>It's 9:07am (est).  Where is everyone?!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun (in a deranged sort of way) - My roof now has blue tarp on it.  While that's not fun, it makes me happy to know that with any rain we get tonight, tomorrow or - really, until this whole repair stuff is done - at least my roof won't suffer additional damage. </p>
<p> </p>

<p>This shot kind of tickles me, in that there are pine tree bits tangled in the security light fixture just above the window. Guess I'll be bringing out the ladder to get that this weekend.  I foresee myself spending quite a few hours in the yard this weekend, picking up 3203028433 pinecones and sticks!</p>

<p>Howdy!  I'm here. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>FUN:  On my lunch hour today, I'm going to go tell someone that if he should happen to ask me out on a date, I might just say yes.  I don't want to make it too easy for him. </p>

<p>ok people!!  I'm fully coffee'd and ready to go today!! WOOT WOOT!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now I do have to ask a 30's favor and I hate to bring down the Friday thread but you guys are so good at the vibes I have to ask for 3 people</p>
<p> </p>
<p>1.  A co-workers mom has 4-6 weeks to live end stage lung cancer never smoked anything in her life.  I need pain free and peacefull vibes</p>
<p> </p>
<p>2.  Another co-workers 3 year old son has a massive tumor on his liver.  They were going to try healing with the ways of their country people but the tumor is way to big so they have to start Chemo to shrink it so they can do surgery to remove it.  For little man I need as many vibes as I can get</p>
<p> </p>
<p>3.  My dad is having hip replacement surgery on Monday and while I know it's a routine procedure and shouldn't take very long and the relief for him will be pretty much instantainous I'm still worried and nervous.  So for him I need speedy healing vibes, quick surgery vibes, and try NOT!! to be an a-hole to mom vibes</p>
<p> </p>
<p>... for me I need some anti anxiety wippy vibes. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know you guys can pull this off as collectively as the 30's we kick ass in vibe-giving-ness. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Has anyone heard from <strong>KJ</strong>  and how her first week of work went?  I think we should give her some kick ass vibes too! </p>
<p> </p>

<p><strong>Wippy</strong> - vibes sent on all three accounts, but why do you want " try to be an a-hole to mom vibes" ?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been hoping for a <strong>KJ</strong> check in too. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Ailerie</strong> - I love how you're just rolling with this.  I know a lot of people that would have much more drama!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Winter</strong> - good luck :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Like <strong>Bob</strong>, I'm happy it's Friday.   We have lots of potential fun plans this weekend, assuming I survive my long run.   I'm trying not to think about it, but I can't help it!</p>

<p>Go for it <strong>Winterbabe!</strong>  Rawr!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Wippy</strong> - sending vibes to your family and friends. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Amiche</strong>l - Drama is sort of pointless in my case.  There's only one person here now to make decisions, and while I can cry, swear, cower or hide from what needs to be done, if I run away / ignore the situation - nothing changes.  The issues will not disappear on their own, so I figure I might as well just deal with them now.  The sooner I figure things out, the sooner life gets back to normal.  it's straight-forward logic to me.  Thanks for the support, though. </p>

<p>NOT FUN: I have tried posting 2 times and it has malfunctioned on me (user error admittedly) - don't accidentally push ctrl -w.  :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Ailarie - YOU RAWK!!</strong>  I love your attitude.  I understand it and most people know that, but cannot execute on it.  You do and that is awesome!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Wippy</strong> - loads of vibes coming your way and to your friends/family.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Winter</strong> - you go girl!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am also thinking about <strong>KJ.</strong>  I hope she had a great week.  Even more so, I hope she has a happy and relaxing weekend to cap it off.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Friday is a very, very good thing!!  <span><img alt="blob9.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blob9.gif" style="width:31px;height:31px;"></span></p>

<p>Morning, friends.  I'm glad it's Friday, too, though I have a pretty full weekend in front of me.  Still, I'm that much closer to the end of the semester.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for all the house love yesterday.  I really, really love it, and it makes me so happy to be in my house.  I didn't realize what some paint, new shelves, new tv stand, and pictures could do for how I felt about my house.  So happy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but I was accepted into a fellowship program this week that will take me on an all-expenses paid trip to Israel this summer for 11 days.  It's going to be awesome!  We'll get to talk to academics, counter-terrorism experts, military folks, ambassadors, actual convicted terrorists and we'll get to inspect Israeli defenses and Hezbollah positions across the border in Lebanon.  Apparently, we also get to shoot off munitions in the desert and spend part of a day at the beach.  Plus, there's a trip to the West Bank and Jerusalem.  I am so excited!  I don't think my mom will be quite as excited, though.  She tends to worried about my getting killed when I travel abroad and Israel isn't the safest place I could have picked.  Still, I am incredibly stoked!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lots of vibes out to WIp, her dad, her co-worker, and her co-worker's son.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hugs to those who need them and gropes to those who want them.</p>

<p><strong>PRAE!!! </strong> I didn't get a chance to mention yesterday how much I love your living room color!!  That color is one of my favorite relaxing colors.  When do we get to see pictures of the rest of the paint you picked out????</p>
<p>AND awesome on the fellowship!  I'm super jealous!</p>

<p><strong>Wippy</strong> I'll pray for all involved including you.</p>

<p><strong>Winterbabe</strong> is on the prowl  <span><img alt="toothy10.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/toothy10.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Ailarie</strong> my co-worker told me he was ticked in that he had to pick up a ton of pine cones before he could mow his lawn.  I told him to get an old golf club out and smack 'em out of the yard.  He liked the idea hehehe</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>I woke up this morning and was totally exhausted yet again (jet lag the past few days + less than optimal amounts of sleep will do that to ya), but this time also feeling a bit oogy in the stomach.  So I called off work, a very unusual occurrence for me.  After 3 more hours of sleep and a whole wheat english muffin with PB and honey, I'm feeling a bit better.  Less tired for sure, though still not 100% on the stomach.  I am starting to think it is more related to messed up eating patterns the past few days than any sort of bug, but who knows.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, now I'm not sure what to do with my day, though I will probably just hang around here.  Might even nap again later.  <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"></span>   I'll check my work email at least once, hopefully there are no crises. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Prae- </strong> cute house!  And congrats on the fellowship!! Is that the result of the packet you sent off a few weeks ago that you were stressing about a little?</p>

<p><strong>Wippy- </strong> good thoughts going out for all, including you. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>One of my coworkers who had been on medical leave for several months due to breast cancer died yesterday.  She was in her 50's I think?  She had worked our reception desk for years. </p>

<p>Hi all - exactly one week after temperatures approach 80 degrees, we get...hail?  Was on the very southern edge of a T-storm cell that dropped a whole lot of hail and sleet and stuff on some towns northeast of me, and even an F0 tornado to boot.  Very rare stuff indeed, and even more rare is that the hail/slush/ice that fell has stuck around overnight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Vibes to all of your associates and dad, <strong>Wippy</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Winter</strong> - may your lunch time be fruitful for more than food</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Patch 'em up vibes to your rooftop, <strong>Ailarie</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>KJ -</strong> hope things are going well for you as well</p>

<p>Ailarie!  you go, girl!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>you too Winter! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Prae!  that's awesome!  My friends who just returned from living in Israel for 3 years said it's actually safer there, day to day, than it is here. You'll be fine. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I don't have much.  Going to see Rent tonight at the Club.  I've never seen it...not sure I want to, still, but I have friends in it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tomw's a busy-ish day, returning to flamenco for the first time in a month, then going to DxH's gallery reception with my sis, which will be fun.  It will be the first time I've seen my ex-ILs though, and I'm a little nervous. I just want to look good enough that they'll see I'm happy, but not gloating. (Does that make sense?)  We do keep in touch a bit, via FB, but I haven't actually seen them in almost 2 years.  Weird.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>At some point this weekend, I have to go to the theatre where I'm costuming a show that opens next month. I'm so down on this show, it's awful, I need to snap out of it.  Or at least pull what I think they want and just be done with it.  Meh.</p>
