As a loyal, non-paid "employee" of blogland, it has come to my attention that I have approximately 4.5 months of vacation, sick time and "none of your damn business" time accrued.
Although I am still remorseful over the "hot dog incident" that sparked some 325-odd lawsuits, and Betty in human resources still isn't speaking to me, I believe that I am still entitled to those benefits outlined in my contract.
Therefore, effective today, June 29, 2008, I am officially taking a week off (well, week-ish off anyways.) I will be working on my house and flossing my cats, in case you're wondering. I may also spend some quality time lounging by the pool (bathtub) with my loyal manservant Renaldo (my husband and/or cats) bringing me daiquiris (Boone's farm) and hors d'oeuvres (Doritos).
I just need a break.
Have a great week and don't cheat on me while I'm gone. Oh, and I marked all of the liquor bottles- lord knows I can't trust you kids.
(boys can stop reading now...)
(Seriously, stop. There's nothing for you to see here.)
I mentioned recently that my lovely gal Lollie is preggers. She was gracious enough to invite me to her shower a few weeks ago in Florida, but alas- I could not go. My other gal Worker Mommy suggested we throw her an internet shower and was gracious enough to do all of the work, including this post-in-a-post:
Presenting the mother of all Online Showers!
Hosted by the two WMs
The lovely Lollie (link) is expecting her first little wee-nut August 2nd! As much as we wanted to hop on the first plane headed to sunny Fl to celebrate with her in person sadly that wasn’t to be.
So we, the two WMs: WhiskeyMarie & Worker Mommy are throwing her one helluva of a cyber shower and you’re all invited!
We’ve got presents from some terrific sponsors and games so grab a drink, sit back, relax and we’ll tell you how you can join in the festivities and possibly take home some goodies of your own.
The presents: Happy Panda Baby graciously offered to sponsor this shindig and will be sending their super hip flawless sleep set for the baby to be - because we know that any baby of Lollie’s will be just that - flawless.
Finally, what’s a party with out cake? Mommysbabycakes is donating a fabulous three tiered diaper cake and matching diaper bassinet/k pictured for mom and baby. The cool thing about this cake is that all items are 100 % reusable and this cake will not make you gain extra lbs! Check out Mommy she’s got some of the best prices out there.
And you …just how do you fit in? Well we want you to share the love.
Create a post in honor of Lollie and her baby using the following 20 words : nursery, diaper, bottle, onesie, crib, stroller, binky, booties, blankie, baby powder magician , practical , fedora, cinema, petunia, bison, airplane , organic , computerized, gesture.
Now go forth and create. And please be sure to come back here and let me know once you’ve posted your masterpiece. You have until July 11th at which time WM, Lollie and I will select 2 winners to receive their choice of a $20 Visa Gift Card or I-Tunes Gift Card
And for a chance to win a $15 I-Tunes Card ? :
Lollie’s due date is 8/2 but we all know babies typically come when they want to. In true baby shower style leave a comment guessing the gender, the birthdate and the weight. (if it helps any Lollie was 8lbs 4 oz and her guy was 5lbs 6oz.) The closest guess whens (although don’t expect to see this particular prize until August)
Congratulations Lollie we heart you so and to all the rest of y’all “Game On!”
From your hosts
