Friday Favorites

I hopped aboard the VentHardNow Train yesterday, and now it's time to hop off and head for that greener pasture. It's time for optimistic, numbered joy-sharing. Friday Favorites, sponsored by Janna Bee (in her words, "Friday Favorites are the things that got us through the week, big and small.") Lezzgo.

1. Absolutely, positively, without a doubt, policeman and firemen and civil servants have the roughest, most thankless jobs for which we should be MOST thankful. And I really am**.

2. So, this is a makeup post, then? (No!) You felt a little bad, though, right? (Yep.)

3. My husband.

4. Gifted French Truffles from my adorable Aging Asian Yogi.

(Yes. They are open now.)

5. All the new Followers* of Fingers&Paws. Strap yourselves in!

6. Black Mountain Pinot Noir.
7. The nursery at the gym. See #4. And every previous post referencing Thin Mints.
8. Ad-hoc post-meeting Happy Hour with the girls, where I picked up the phrase, "That REALLY flipped my pancake". Also, much sex talk. Also, $2 drafts.
9. Being a guest poster at What It's Like to Be Mie on Tuesday.
10. Coming up with a brilliant, enlightening post for my 100th post.. which is coming up next week. (Finally. The Kevin Costner post.)

IF I come up with something brilliant for OMW's Friday Fiction, I'll post it for the weekend. Let's ask the Magic Eight Ball...

"Looks doubtful."

* Capitalizing F makes you sound like Disciples, and I PROMISE that is the furthest thing from this raised-good-Catholic-and-still-tries-hard-to-make-Mass-though-lack-of-a-nursey-and-screaming-toddler-just-does not-work Mom.
** I have a lot of people in my life that have dedicated their careers and lives to serving the needs of others in the form of federal government, law enforcement, intelligence, and .. my Mom. They can never know how much I appreciate and admire them.

Congrats on all the new followers - you're going to take over the blog world!

And a 100 posts - yay! Let me know if you need any help in anyway to celebrate.

And those truffles look fantastic.

I'm going to start using your pancake phrase. How odd and wonderful.

I'm finding out how great the gym nursery is this week, I never knew things could be so great.

Congratulations on your upcoming 100th post! Hooray fo the policemen, firemen and civil servants! They deserve a huge high five for giving it all for everyone in their communities!! Thanks for the Truffles picture this morning. My chocolate craving is starting way too early:)

First woman I ever saw who put civil servants in front of chocolates!

♥ Kathy March 13, 2009 at 7:58 AM  

I liked your list. Truffles rock!

Nessa March 13, 2009 at 8:09 AM  

Those chocolates look sinful! Love your Friday favorites!

Sounds like next week is going to be fun around here!

Michelle March 13, 2009 at 12:10 PM  

Yes, there are a ton of fun things to do in bloggy land on Fridays.

And I love me some truffles.

Kitten March 13, 2009 at 8:59 PM  

Yay! 100 posts! Congrats to you my friend! :)

I have to check out this one-minute writer thing myself...over some truffles and thin mints, of course...

P.S. Word verification? PAWayl. Fingers and Paws, get it?

Came over from Janna's Blog.....

I've never heard the saying about the pancakes, but I just used it for the first time. My husband's response "What does it do to your waffle?"

That truffle box is insanely enormous and that is a very good thing!

It is so exciting to see your posts flow all the way to 100. I also am right on the edge of 100. I am excited about it although in a later post you said even the drafts count. I have to go and count now. I just wanted to say the truffles look so yummy!
