Been voting from home and work! Had to make a new smackjeevesaccount, I'd forgotten my old info.
So, are we going to see her pupate for real before the trip ends?
Believe it or not, that's actually happened to me more than once. And with the same door, no less.
@Eddurd: Heh, she's in good company. Listen to nearly every politician from either side talk about "Sosh Securty". ^^
You don't say
@Delta-v: To this day, my sister has trouble pronouncing "Social Security". Which is a problem, 'cause she'll be eligible for it in a few years.
Insert pun here.
Poor Gloria - Stage phright is a terrible thing...
Most people hate puns--except for their own, of course. :)

While the term "Gotten out from under" doesn't sound too good, at least it's gone, so that's one step in the right direction. Please keep us posted on the rest.

I feel Gloria's pain. I had an aunt who couldn't say "spaghetti" if her life depended on it. ><

Pharm out, man
I remember when Joan used to call me "nitwit" when I made jokes like this. In a very loving way, of course.

How will the kids take to the folks at Phlocks? Can Gloria even say "folks at Phlocks"? Click on the TWC Vote button to see ...

Well, I'm looking for work again. On the plus side, I've gotten out from under the Fort Wayne house, so that's a big expense off my back. Moved back to Indy with my parents, sorting through all the boxes of junk that I've accumulated over the years. Trying to make time for drawing in between everything else.

It is what it is, except when it isn't.
I'm voting! And when I'm at work I'll vote from there, too.
Nothing wrong with that!
I talk with a British accent (well, one of the British accents) at work all the time.

Never seen somewone wearing a white tie, though (dog collars don't count), although there was a fashion for "creative" ties a few decades ago. It wasn't all bad - I have an incredibly tasteful Mickey Mouse tie I bring out occasionally (The Mickeys are woven in to the pattern so you have to look to see them first time).

Given what happened with Mr Mighty's lunch on his first day, I am a little worried to think of what wull happen when the bad guys accidentally set off the mix of Coke and Mentos while retreating down a sewer filled with medical waste.

It kinda depends in the company, and the employees. For blue collar workers, a white shirt and a necktie IS formal wear. :)

Why does no company have Formal Fridays? I could do my job in a white tie & tailcoat, no prob. Although callers might wonder why I was talking with a British accent all of a sudden.

What will happen when various groups meet? Click on the TWC vote button to find out! (It's a new month, let's see if we can climb the charts a bit!)

Thanks for all your continued support, folks. All these stories in my head want to live, and I'm trying to accommodate them.
@Delta-v: They also 'reset' their counter in the afternoon, and each vote (if you're not logged in) counts based on location. I vote from the office, and from home, when I can... so that may count as two. Cheers!

I've never stopped, but Everyday Heroes is only getting about 12 votes per day, and we're getting kinda lonely out here.

BTW, TWC is allowing two votes per day if you space them far enough apart (about 10 hrs). Quick, vote before they fix it. >>
And that right there...
Yup - the best fight is the one you don't have, indeed.
Agreed. A week or two to deal with family is entirely reasonable, especially /THIS/ time of year, with the Christmas rush just over and thoughts turning to IRS bills.

(with all due respect/apologies to Andy Williams)
o/~ It's the cra~ziest time of the year o/~
With the family screaming and frustration gleaming in e-ver-y tear
It's the (most) craziest time of the year o/~

It's th'most frustrating season of all o/~
Expensive's the shopping; dead cars are all stopping, at your local mall!

I guess there are positive sides to not being close to one's family. LOL.

No problem. See you next week (or even the week after). :)
To be honest? Concentrate on the family.

We can always wait, and I wouldn't want you to regret not spending more time with your father.

Partial success?
It's been a busy couple of weeks. My Dad, God bless him is turning 90 years old. Last weekend, his friends tried to throw a surprise party (which he found out about, of course); this week, relatives are coming in from all over. It's going to be a busy weekend, but I'll try to get the page done in between family events.

UPDATE: Sheesh ... real life has been freakin' intrusive. Finally got the page finished, hope you enjoy.

'NOTHER UPDATE: I also got a new TWC vote incentive up. Hit the button, vote, let's get back up into the top 100!
... who said it was a look-alike? :-P

Anyway, there's (so far) three contenders. The Mentos bomb, the plutonium-powered lava lamp, and ... erm, this. It's anybody's guess which is going to be the most trouble.
