Earth Shattering

First off, I am "all in" on the Facebook thing. I resisted until I needed to get some information from someone and the only way was to "friend them up". Up until now, it has been sort of fun with no trouble. I don't really want to add 10 friends a day but it's just one click and can't possibly be bad... Right? You probably already guessed I read a slightly unexpected "not that there is anything wrong with that" post. I figure my best bet is to friend so many people that I can't possibly read them all. I'll let you know.

Second... It is "National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day" 8=8

Really just the average run of the mill few weeks.
Booked the vacation cruise to Cozumel and the surrounding areas. The ship stops at some port I am sure the cruise line just made up but I don't care. It will be warm. The real selling point of the cruise is that the ship has self leveling pool tables. I really think non self leveling pool tables would be more interesting from a playing standpoint, but I'll just bet people who play pool for a living would never book the cruise. None of this really matters as I plan to just drink heavily and eat like a king for 5 nights (with a balcony). I understand that mentioning the balcony is important because not all rooms have one and it makes me seem better than... well... the people who will be across the hall from me without a balcony.
Our brother in-law told us he has prostate cancer and as I speak (write) has had it removed. His doctors are optimistic and talk about the slowness of prostate cancer. Sounds good so hopefully all will turn out well. Good luck Don
My prodige at work decided my company does not appreciate him enough and found another job. He gave his 2 weeks notice and just drove everybody nuts.
2 Mondays later he announced he was not leaving. I guess the made him "feel more important" (gave him more cash).
Then it happened. We went to dinner (delicious I might add) then to Flying Saucer for Jessie's birthday. Susan went for a bathroom break and came back shortly.
Bla bla bla. Sometime later that same night
We got home and she told me she fell at Flying Saucer and broke her hand.
4 hours at the Doc-in-a-box Saturday morning later... Yep it was broke.
It is hard to describe all the doctor stuff over the last week. The upshot is, surgery is Tuesday and we leave for the cruise on the following Monday.
I really don't know how all this will work out but I'm just glad we did not have to put a new clutch in Susan's car.
Oh did I mention...

Cue the band and get the floats out of the drydock, we are going to need a parade. This means you will be able to go in any restaurant in the town of Irmo without having to breath smoke while eating. Right?
Well, not exactly. The town leaders voted in a law that says you cannot have smoking in any public facility, unless you are a bar or restaurant that had smoking before. So essentially they are banning smoking in places that do not allow smoking. Now that is some hard hitting legal action right there. I feel proud to be part of the community.
Of course I realize no one cares what I think, but I just have to say my money will stay in areas that do not allow smoking on principle. The smoking ban laws are on sketchy ground to begin with and I certainly would not want to stop people from getting lung cancer. My disposable income will be used in places that do not smell so bad you can't even taste the food.
Thats my stance.
Yay Irmo! WOOOOO! Go Irmo!

Work Sucks.

I know I am the only one with this issue. I would just like to say, I really don't care whether anyone else is having a bad week this week or not. I do promise however to care twice as much next week.
So far this week, I have missed lunch 3 times (no jokes about that being good or bad), worked late twice, and lost probably 15 hours of sleep worrying about work. I know I am not supposed to think about work at home but sometimes it just works that way.
I did manage to drink a few beers on every day except Thursday. Since I normally don't drink during the week, or at home, I was a little concerned, but again, I will fix that next week.
Tomorrow is all foot ball all the time. Well....except I need to get ready for cold weather tailgating, go to the dump, buy lumber for the deck "project" and make chilli.

Go Cocks!

Gamecocks v2.0

I was amazed that after beating tennessee the crowd was very non plussed by the victory. I am thinking that even 2 years ago that win would have people rushing the field. Have expectations risen that much that we think beating a traditional power is common?
I would hate to think we would under appreciate what was still a big win in the sec.
