50th Birthday Cards redux...

Here are the last four cards to trickle in, the ones that I mentioned all had women on the covers:

From my friend Sharon:

Card Front: [Woman (in color) dancing in the middle of the floor of a bar with people (all in black and white) sitting around the dance floor watching her] "As long as you can shake it without breakin' it..."

Card Inside: [Music starts playing when you open it. The song is "Shake Your Groove Thing."]  "...you're nowhere near old."

Sentiments: John, I love you! Happy Birthday. ~S~

From my friend Suzanne:

Card Front: [Two women sitting at a counter enjoying a soft drink together with speech bubbles over each of their heads.] First girl: "Where's your birthday party at?"   Second girl: "Don't end a sentence with a preposition."

Card Inside: First girl, restating: "Where's your birthday party at, bitch?"  Hope your birthday is one big party.

Sentiments: Dear John– I'm sure your 50th was everything you wanted it to be! I'm glad I could extend the celebration with you! Love, Suzanne

From my friend Janet:

Card Front: [Picture of a woman in a pink dress and satin sash on, as well as a straw hat with flowers in it, holding the bit of a fine, strong horse.] "Pink summer dress with ruffles and a white satin sash: $200. Perky straw hat with flowers: $125.00."

Card Inside: "An afternoon with a fine stallion: Priceless".

Sentiments: Happy 50th Birthday. Love, Janet

And another card from my friend Joe:

Card Front: [Picture of a platinum blond with red-tinted cat-eye glasses on with a big ole cigarette sticking out of a mouth that is scrunched up exaggerating the wrinkles above her lip and on her chin.] "Old enough to know better..."

Card Inside: "...young enough not to give a rat's ass."

Sentiments: Happy Birthday to my best friend & "sistah" – thanks for being part of my life!  Love ya, Joe
I worked from home today, and edited my little heart out.

I got so involved in it that at one point I checked the time and it was 10:30. "30 more minutes and I need to connect into that conference call," I thought. When I next looked up, it was 11:30.

As it turned out, however, they spent 20 minutes at the beginning of the meeting trying to work out connectivity problems with regards to the call and the tool being used to view charts and presentations, and ended up re-scheduling the meeting.

Glad I didn't waste my time, now. And, bonus, they rescheduled the meeting for a day on which I don't work.

I dug out a t-shirt I haven't worn in a long, long time, and had forgotten how much fun it is to wear.

It's one that's hard to figure out, and I enjoy watching people trying to read it, trying to figure it out, or keep trying to steal glances at it to "work on it" without looking like they are.

One of the problems with it is that, at first, I think a lot of people think it's in German. This is what it says:

I mailed a bunch of thank-you cards today, a "just saying hello" card, and a sympathy card.

I've been having trouble getting a parking spot for my 6:00 class lately, so today I got to school early, which definitely paid off. Heaps of spots.

Class was a lot of fun tonight. We had lots of laughs, yet had good discussion, too. Nate and Tyler were the summarizers. I take it as an affirmation when people engage in banter with me in class. This happened with both the summarizers tonight.

To summarize our responses to the question, "Is the Scientific Paper Fraudulent?", Nate created a table that gave an overview of peoples' responses. It was in this format:

SandyPossibly, depends on each studyLorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
AnnaNo, but there are assumptionsLorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
AndrewGenerally, noLorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
JohnWho cares, I'm starting a new topicThis is not really (ok, not at all) in response to Susan's question. It's something else that occurred to me while reading. I hope that's ok.
LindsayNo, it's a practical approachLorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

I took this as a total affirmation. Not only that, it got quite the laugh.

I bantered a little bit with Tyler, too, when he was asking me a question about one of my postings. I like him.

On the way out, Brian caught up to me in the parking lot, and asked, "On your way to Helios?" I laughed and said, "Yes, I am."

"I'm on my way to the Cat's Cradle," he replied.

I intended to do homework at Helios, but didn't get much done. I had a very fun instant message conversation with Robert, and then worked on my blog until they closed at 10:00.

At home, I did, well, homework.
