Mish-mosh Friday

The subtitle to today’s post could be, “In which we play catch-up.”

Firstly, Lady Gretchen Greer wishes to thank Norwood for the Razzy.  Norwood, a fellow terrier, graciously bestowed awards on his fellow groupies  contestants in the terrier class.  Gretchen is delighted that our friends Misty and Sasha were also awarded the same Razzy.  (In fact, all three are clustered together – they’re to the left of her on Norwood’s site.)

Diva is a little dejected.   She didn’t get an award from anyone.  I’ve suggested that maybe we’ll do some sort of awards on her blog once she gets herself straight.  She can be rather pouty…

So, the Knight is really all over this Valentine thing.  (No, those are markers Anita sent me last year; he’d NEVER give me fibery goodies.)  Last night, the poor UPS man hiked down our driveway and worst of all, up our unshovelled front walk, to drop off my new Cinnamon Keurig

Why yes, I *DO* have another Keurig, which was a Christmas present.  As a matter of fact, it is working just fine.  However, since I decided at the very moment the Knight announced he was going shopping on Christmas Eve day that I wanted a Keurig, we did no research at all, and he bought the only one he saw.  We’re research-shoppers, so once the Knight figured out I really liked the thing and was using the daylights out of it, he began looking around and realized that there was a model that addressed all of my wishes, and QVC had it in a color HE liked…  This one does four brewing sizes and has a brewing temperature control. 

Then, just a few minutes ago, a Best Buy bag dropped on my desk, and it held a Mario Kart game.  Because it might snow buckets again on Monday, and a girl needs her entertainment…  (We won’t mention that they’re now talking about flurries later tonight…) 

So, what Valentines plans do you have?  I still think it’s a wretched holiday.  I remember filling out cards in school, when I was five or six.  I remember informing the adult helping me with them that I wasn’t going to send a certain boy one, because I didn’t even like him, much less love him.  Of course, a letter had come home with a class list, and we HAD to give EVERY student a valentine, so whomever the adult was sat there patiently and found me the most benign card in the pack…

    Well that’s a fancy machine… and the color is quite pretty! 🙂

    Not sure of my V-day plans yet, other than watching the race…

    He wasn’t the leader of the pack then, huh?

    Very nice color on your new K-machine. I’m still dropping hints about one.

    We only send each other valentines. It seems weird to send them to people you hardly know. There is one exception this year that you’ll find out about later.

    We went to an amazing dinner last night at this place (http://www.mikesinthevillage.com/). Everyone had canceled because of the dreadful weather so it was like we had the restaurant to ourselves–there was only one other table there and they were in the other room! It was the best dinner I’ve ever had and we had a wonderful time. We rarely go out to fancy places, so it was a real treat.

    Dear Sissy,

    I hereby inform you that you are the winner of “MARY’S FAVORITE BASSET HOUND” award.

    Sorry no special Keurig’s for Dogs come with this award.

    Well, Hubband comes home today and I have been told there is lots of cheese being imported! I think I will make croissants to go with the cheese on Sunday. Of course, none of that is really related to Valentine’s Day directly, he would have brought me cheese anyway, and I would cook for him, no matter what day it is!

    I always LOVED valentines day…but that’s because of my mom! No big plans here, but I’ll come up with something. M. has a terrible cough that 4 and 6 had last week. 8 came down with it last night. So far…I’m well. I’m planning on knitting through opening ceremonies tonight.

    He he, I love the Razzy award! We just sent Sissy a “Jazzy” award. 🙂

    I’m home, came home around noon… tummy is rolling around a bit. We are just waiting on some SNOW!

    I bestow on Sissy The Cutest Pouty Award. I just can’t help myself:) As for those presents!!! Good for you and kudos to the Knight!

    I was just talking to my seven year old grand daughter and she was telling me about all the cards she was giving out in class. She said, “Grammy, if I get a bunch of pink cards, how will I save them all?” Noah, my grandson is wearing the shirt I bought him that says “Girls just can stay away from me” today but he adamantly refuses to give out any cards. The “tradition continues…”

    I love the Keurig! If it were socially acceptable I would worship it.

  12. […] you don’t follow my blog, you’re lost.   That link will take you to today’s post, where Sissy didn’t […]

  13. LUV the cute Vday theme stichmarkers!

    Happy Love Day 🙂

    The Knight did pretty well for being all over the Valentines thing! I’m doing a “NO-MORE-SNOW” dance. I don’t think I can take one more snowflake!

  15. Bubblesknits says:

    LOL We’ve got a birthday party to attend tomorrow, so there won’t be any candlelit dinners here. Just wild children to keep up with. 😉

    Love your new Cinnamon Keurig!

    While the girls over here are ecsatic on Gretchen bestowed with awards, Mr. B says hrmph on his girlfriend not getting an award. He hearby dubs her with the “Bestest Ever Princess Award.” 🙂
    Love the gift and I’m glad the Knight chose a color that HE liked…lol

    Valentine’s Day…pch…I don’t particularly care for the day so we’re not personally celebrating it. We will be at my grandmother’s birthday party and then we’ll be getting ready for the next snow storm.
