Leah said...

Well, I'm here. Since Christmas is really more like, well, Wednesday for me, I'm just hanging around, putting my feet up after dinner dishes.

I think I'll just fix myself a bloody mary--extra pepper and lemon--with a nice fresh stick of celery--since I'm alone, I can use the celery to drink it. Yum! Maybe some water crackers.

Welcome to The Onion, Megan :)
This where I hang out to get away from the 'trouble & strife'.

Suzanne said...

I was having a dream about trouble and strife. True story...I was actually dreaming I hadn't turned on the dishwasher. I woke up and realized I really hadn't. I ran to the kitchen and yup, I hadn't. That's why I'm up. I looked inside. Yup, fully loaded. Detergent? Yup. All I forgot to do was click the FREAKIN button!!! Why? WHO KNOWS!!! So the dishwashers running and a whole slew of kitties and T-Bone later, I'm finally resting my butt right here. I get up and everyone thinks it's "treat time," no matter what the time. It's just pathetic. This time I said "I'M NOT BOWING TO PRESSURE." And I meant it. An hour later...










"Here honey, do you want Mommy to open another can?"

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE WILD ONION!!!! LOVE YA BABY!!!

XO

Leah said...

Wait, there were other people here! I think I really do need to put on my glasses...

Megan said...

xoxoxoxoxo

Suzanne said...

Puts on glasses to see if Leah's wearing hers. Nope, she's not. However, she's passed out on the bar room floor with little x's and o's all over her face and body with a post-it attached to her breast that reads "Megan was here." Hummmmmm.

"SEVERUS HONEY, CAN YOU PUT LEAH ON THE MACY'S SOFA?"

"DO IT YOURSELF!!!"

*Rolls eyes in back of head.* Unhired help. Cece will you please start paying someone so I can get a bit of cooperation around here?

Kookaburra said...

Hey Suze,

I was dreaming too ... and not about that:)

Hi Megan,
Hi RC,
Hi Leah,
Hi Bob,
Hi Gig

Let's PARTAYY!

Suzanne said...

Get's off PPT, looks around behind bar. Yup, I can do this. "Mark, what'll you have my dear man?"

just bob said...

Blottie... if you mess up my bar there's gonna be hell to pay missy.

Leah said...

I just actually for real laughed out loud.

Leah said...

Okay, I put my glasses back on and now I can see again. Thank God.

Leah said...

Okay, I trimmed away my shoulders too.

How was everyone's holiday?

Kookaburra said...

Hey Leah,
So did I. That Bob, he just cracks me up lol.

Hey everybody,
I had a nice day with family and friends at our hosts Susan and Ian's home yesterday. We had a Christmas lunch.
We helped ourselves to all this yummy food:

Entre':
from a selection of:
smoked salmon; prawns; avocado; turkey etc. all washed down with a choice from beer, cider, soft drink.

Main:
Roast pork, with crackling; turkey;
peas, carrots, green beans, roast potatoes; roast turnip; and Ian's famous gravy (well, the gravy wasn't famous - but it is now). There was a selection of lovely wines too: a merlot, a chardonnay, and a cabernet sauvignon (i think i spelled it right).

Dessert:
trifle; apple crumble; chocolate ripple cake(made with chocolate ripple cookies); fruit and cheeses.

Lunch was taken at a leisurely pace over about three hours.
After lunch we helped to clear up and then watched some British comedy on cable tv and opened our Kris Kringle presents.
The hosts' eight year old girl child was asked by someone who shall remain anonymous to read one joke per day to her dad from all the xmas cracker jokes that she collected. Her dad was to pretend that it was the first time he'd heard them.

Jambalaya!!!

Suzanne said...

With real pride of ownership says, "You step foot in my bar, I'll kick your a$$. I know what I'm doing." Fills Kooka's wine glass to the rim for 3rd time. Wow, that bottle went mighty fast. Just Bob can be heard muttering "Oh Dear God." Hey, don't you mock me mister.

Missy XO

P.S. I'm so hungry. Is that vegetarian? Wow, look at Leah. Glasses and no shoulders. Good grief. Will this nightmare never end?

just bob said...

Hey missy... make sure you recycle those empties... this is a green establishment.

Suzanne said...

Hey Mister! You bet we recycle!!!

Bob, I'm listening to Mary C's 10,000 miles. Something happened today that made me question why I'm on this planet. If I died tomorrow, I want you to know I love you to pieces and that you mattered in my life. I think, too frequently, we don't let the people we love know we love them. I want everyone I love to know I love them.

XO Blottie

Leah said...

What happened Suzy?

Gig said...

Hi Leah!

Suzanne said...

Leah,

Hi honey. I'm about to post as soon as I get the damn photos loaded. Today I was humbled. Really, really humbled. It was a remarkable education. One I will never forget. I think everyone needs to be humbled. I do. And they need to be humbled while listening to Mary Chapin's 10,000 Miles. That really grinds it in!

I love you darling. I do. If I die tomorrow, I think you should know.

Suzanne said...

Hi Gig!

Suzanne said...

Megan,

See what you've found? This is a remarkably beautiful place. It never ceases to amaze me. Never. One word and we're off!!!!

Megan said...

Hi everybody. I just got home with all my swag. I am stuffed full of tri-tip and double-baked and strawberry salad and pumpkin pie. I know what one of my resolutions is going to be - starvation diet!!!

Suz, it's tomorrow and you just better be alive.

No offense RC but I am really not happy about having to go to work in the morning!

Hello and goodnight!

Suzanne said...

I'm here baby. I love you.

Leah said...

Hi Megan! What's strawberry salad? Intriguing...

My husband's not happy about going to work today either. I tried to smooth the way with a leftover roast beef sandwich in bed--his favorite breakfast! I'm not sure it did smooth the way though...

Leah said...

Mark--your Christmas feast sounds absolutely incredible.

*plops down and orders a glass of cab*

Hi guys... I'm not happy about work tomorrow either. Hopefully there will be lots of people in dire need of hair services...

Just got done cleaning guinea pig cages, and getting ready to scoop catboxes, and then I'm doing my daughter's hair. She wants fire engine red with highlights. When she gets in the shower it will look like a massacre. Yikes.
