Aunty Pol

Happy Thanksgiving Y'All !

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving this year.

SU is going to his sister's sister in laws...don't ask...and I will be home buried under covers since I have some sort of kill me now respiratory thingy going on and I am NOT going to expose my frail lil mother in law to this shit.

Let me put it like this....I have come home every night this week and been in bed, face washed, teeth cleaned by 7: 20.....and we get home about 7.

I am oddly enough not running fever, but I sincerely feel like krep and it doesn't help that the two I work with have each taken one of the days off this week and it's only Wednesday....oh yeah.

I doubt that SU will be coming home with a plate for me which is fine...I'd comment further but he does read this...there is plenty of vittles in the freezer so all is well. Judging from the state shall we say of my bee gee's....I could stand to skip a fork or three.

That's just as well since we just got the invite to a birthday par tay for Mrs. Crazy Cajun. This blow out starts at noon....and all y'all need to know is as follows :

1. Sistah hits the big 5-0 ( Book 'Em Danno)

2. She's married to the Cajun.

3. See the above.

It this is anything like the beloved childs high school graduation...jeebus H.

And I have no idea what to get

Talk to you later from the Casa...

Hugs to PG...Miss Lisa, Calamity Anne , Sarah, Aimee, Nee Nee, Lael, Double 0 Mullet and all the fur folk.

Gobble Friggan Gobble Y'all.

If It's Monday ~ It's John Barrowman Time ~!

Note to daughter of attorney:


As always it is my deepest pleasure to genuflect before you and your spawn . Your demands are quite reasonable given the miracle of childbirth displayed before me. How fortunate is your child to have such a model of charm and gentility to guide her through life and to educate her in the finer graces.

Your presence has both graced and elevated my meager life and as always I remain ,

Suitably Grateful and beneath your sublime notice.

Aunty Pol

Well Crap !

Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend.
SU had to work and so the honey do's that were plotted out will have to fall into place post Turkey day which is just as well since one of them involved moving a potted plant to the ground...and it was cold and rainy here.
I spent some time with the brudder....spent most of it laughing my ass off ...poor SU had no clue about half of what we were talking about but that was ok too since SU basically just wanted to sleep.
Sadly tho..Jeri had to put Gumbo down so it was a very sad weekend between the two houses. He'd been going down hill for a bit and being such a small breed....Shi Tsu...any weight loss is super apparent. It's really hard..anyone who has gone thru it knows.....even SU who is not really a dog person was very upset by the news....sigh.
On top of all of that , I think that I am coming down with the crud......crappity crap crap crap.
Never fails.
Have a great week.

Bruce Of The Day ~ Happy Friday ~

Happy Friday People !!

The above is from " Burn Notice" and thus is not the younger BC that we all know and love.

All ages..all Bruce....yep...that's my motto.

It looks to be a busy weekend, and since I have to yet again spot clean the carpets where the children decided to decorate/'s raining.

I can't catch a break.

I am fighting a rather solid case of the holiday blues right now...I am usually the one who remains the " Oh don't be like that"..and I recognize that I am married to a self proclaimed Grinch....

But it's been one hell of a long , bad year...starting last Dec. 27 when I fell and really injured my leg.

Lets see..

Leg injury - me
Flu/ slow death- SU
Teeth - SU
Possible Diabetes - Xena
Leg Injury-me
Flu - him

For once , I am going to allow myself to feel a bit if the blues during the holidays, recognizing the still agonizing loss of my father and that anniversary coming up ...and the real potential time line with my mother in law.

I am tired. stressed, worn to a nub and can't remember any sort of vacation this year. I am taking the week between Christmas and New Years ...the week off in April taking care of SU does not count...

I am just tired...that's all

Yes, cheese with this whine would be lovely.

It will get better.

Have a great weekend.

An Oldie But A Goodie

. Subject: mouse balls

I don't know how they wrote this with a straight face... This apparently was a real memo sent out by a computer company to its employees in all seriousness .

It went to all field engineers about a computer peripheral problem The author of this memo was quite genuine. The engineers rolled on the floor!

Especially note the last couple of sentences.

If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement.

Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units). Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel.

Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse.

Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal pocedures differ depending upon the manufacturer of the mouse.

Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method.

Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method.

Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive.

However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge.

Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.

It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction.

Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items.

Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer.

I came across this about 6 years ago and saved it .

Being the compulsive sorter that I am , I stashed it in a file and promptly forgot about it. This is a seldom discussed family genetic trait I possess. My late mother was known far and wide amongst her peers as someone who was so adept at hiding Christmas presents that they remained hidden....often for years at a time !

Enjoy !

One For My Generation .

This is hard to read from the picture so I am going to put the text here .
A self-important college freshman walking along the beach took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen resting on the steps why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
" You grew up in a different world , actually an almost primitive one" the student said loud enough for others to hear.
" The young people of today grew up with television , jet planes , space travel , man walking on the moon. We have nuclear energy, ships and cell phones , computers with light speed any many more."
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows.
" You're right son, we didn't have those things when we were young we invented them."
" Now , you arrogant little sh*t, what are you doing for the next generation ?"
The applause was amazing.
My best friend sends the best stuff !!!!

CNN Fails to Tap Bruce Campbell as Replacement for Lou Dobbs

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Lou Dobbs abruptly resigned last night as CNN’s 7 p.m. anchor. The network has already named John King as his replacement.


Obviously, a great opportunity has been missed here. CNN, as it has been reported, currently finds itself far behind Fox News in the prime-time ratings race; on a recent night, it finished fourth, with just 826,000 viewers, behind even MSNBC and sister network Headline News. Clearly, something more inspired than simply tapping a known commodity — not to mention a second CNN anchor with the last name King — was needed.

I’m thinking that CNN should have instead gone after the only man ever to achieve cult fame by replacing his own hand with a chain saw.

That’s right: CNN should have hired Bruce Campbell.

Okay, so Campbell isn’t exactly known for his views on politics. He’s far more adept at speaking about what it’s like to be a B-movie poobah and hamming it up in ads for Old Spice than he is at delivering hard-hitting commentary about the state of the world. But think about it. By courting him, CNN could have goosed its ratings by enticing millions of loyal geeks every night to drink from the river Campbell. The network also would have netted a natural branding partner for its current 8 p.m. host. And yet, due to CNN’s short-sightedness, the Comic-Con crowd still awaits the Bruce Campbell/Campbell Brown era.

Not that Bruce Campbell needs the gig. In addition to being the occasional subject of our very own Bruce Campbell Watch, he still has his highly visible supporting role as Sam Axe on Burn Notice, one of cable television’s highest-rated shows. And he will be seen again on big screens as Ash Williams when Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead gets a long-overdue re-release in 2010. In fact, Campbell may have summed up the situation best in that movie’s underrated 1993 second sequel, Army of Darkness, when he said, “Hail to the king, baby.”

CNN might not know it yet, but you can be sure he wasn’t referring to John King.

For All Of Us Who Are Michael Shanks/Daniel Jackson Groupies !

Frrom TV Guide

" Hawkman Swoops Into Smallville"

by William Keck November 16, 2009 07:23 AM EST

Here it is! A sneak peek at Michael Shanks in the Hawkman costume he dons for Smallville’s highly anticipated two-hour movie event. Featuring the Justice Society, the special airs February 5, and the second hour is directed by Tom Welling. In between practicing his flying stunts above the Daily Planet rooftop and Chloe’s Watchtower, the Stargate SG-1 alum called me from the Vancouver set to dish on his role.It seems we’ll be seeing a lot of you soaring through the air, eh?Yeah. There are a few scenes involving him flying into various sets. One of them is in Watchtower and we’ll also see him on the Daily Planet roof. And at the end of the day, Hawkman takes off his wings and hangs them in the closet.

How’s your flying been going?

Today’s my practice day. There’s no stunt guy, so I need to ace this so I don’t make Hawkman look like a goofball. It’s traditional wire work that involves strapping on this harness so that large men with giant arms can lift me up and manipulate me. I’m also swinging around Hawkman’s giant mace as a weapon.

Are you exposing your chest as Hawkman did?

No nudity. The way the harness is designed they needed to create a bronze chest plate. The helmet is also more of a bronze-tone than a big yellow gold thing. My whole upper torso becomes a big immobile object.

What’s Hawkman’s story?

When we first meet Carter Hall he’s in his museum. We’ll learn he’s a reincarnated prince from a thousand years ago. There is a reference to The Justice Society’s time in the ‘70s, but we have since disbanded.

What advice does he give Clark?

There’s a reference given to him flying, but it’s more of a metaphor to his own personal growth. Clark and his friends are figuring out what their destinies will be, so there is a ripe opportunity for the Justice Society who had been there done that to offer some tough love teaching.Tom Welling is directing the second episode of this arc.

Is he excited or terrified?

I’m sure he’s excited and terrified. The first part is a lot of the character’s back-stories with them in civilian attire. Whereas in part two, Tom gets saddled with a lot of the action elements that will take a lot of time to shoot. He’s also acting throughout the episode he’s directing, which will be quite a task.

Are there references to Society members who aren’t seen in the episodes?

Oh yes. You’ll see a ton of references. This is a fan’s dream. Let’s say there are lots of memories and paraphernalia that people will be familiar with.What is his relationship to Ollie/Green Arrow?We will see an antagonism between them involving political views.

And Chloe?She is a bit of an enigma to him. To have this pretty, smart blonde girl walking around among all these superheroes is an anomaly. Carter doesn’t know what to make of her.

How about Lois?

There’s a little bit of the Clark romance and then more with Tess’ dark plotting.

Have the regular Smallville characters heard about the Society members?

No. That’s a big plot point to find out how come they’ve never heard of these people.

What is his relationship like with fellow heroes Dr. Fate, Stargirl and Martian Manhunter?Dr. Fate and Hawkman have a long history. Dr. Fate’s helmet is possessed by an Egyptian deity, which allows his to see into people’s possible futures. He also teleports. Stargirl is brand new to them and I’m not exactly sure what she does. She wasn’t part of the Society with them. And there are some trust issues with Martian Manhunter that are going to need to be dealt with.

You share a relationship with these actors?

Yeah. Brent Stait (Kent Nelson/Dr. Fate) was with me thirteen years ago on the Stargate pilot. Brent and I just shot a very touching moment between our characters. And oddly enough I worked with Britt Irvin (Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl) in Stargate’s third season when she was like 15 years ago. And now she’s all grown up.

Who are you all battling?

All I’ll say is he has a history with the Justice Society, but I’d never heard of him before.”

Does Hawkman give any advice to Clark and Co. about forming a Justice League of America?

There have been attempts to turn this group of randoms into a cohesive unit, but a lot of these episodes will address their debate into how that would take place and what their philosophy would be.”

Is there any reference made to Hawkgirl?

There’s a lot of referencing to Shayera/ Hawkgirl throughout as his one true love, given the fact that these two have a tremendous history as thousand year-old reincarnated beings who continue to find each other lifetime after lifetime. And we will learn where she is now

.What mood is Hawkman in?

When we first see him, he is a shell of his former self with a heir of cynicism. He wears a lot of grief and guilt and pain over what happened to his friends and the society as a whole and his failures in letting that happen.

Do you change your voice when you switch from Carter Hall to Hawkman?

Yeah. Given his many lives lived, I wanted to build a character with a more fierce quality which involved changing my vocal tone.

You didn’t channel Christian Bale and have a freak-out moment on set, did you?

The way the Hawkman mask fits on me is very Batman-ish, so at one point I passed Smallville’s director of photography who used to work with my wife (actress Lexa Doig) and me on Andromeda, and said with a deep Christina Bale voice, ‘We are done professionally.’

Is there a glimmer of hope offered that the Society could reassemble?

There will be a debate going on about whether we should have formed in the first place, and whether anyone should do it. We came together for the benefit of mankind, but then we were treated appallingly, so there will be a debate as to whether it would make sense for the Justice League to pick up our mantle and do it again.

And you’ll be reprising your Stargate character on two more upcoming episodes of Stargate: Universe?Yes.

I made a cameo in the pilot and they’re keeping me alive to pass the torch. The next one coming up is titled Human, and back-references my character first initiating Dr. Rush (Robert Carlyle) into the Stargate program, but my character exists more as a figment of Dr. Rush’s imagination. And then in Subversion, near the end of the season, we’ll see myself and Richard Dean Anderson helping out with an investigation where sabotage took place back on Earth.

You also have an episode of Sanctuary coming up?

I think I’m in episode nine playing a murky character named Jimmy who finds out he has a sketchy background similar to Kate Freelander played by Agam Darshy.

What’s the chances of us seeing Hawkman return?

The way things land at the end of it all, there’s an open door for Carter Hall to be revisited and possibly be part of further mentoring Clark down the road.

OK , Ok...yeah I bitched about the whole Jor-El thing....and Shanks looks heavy in the above photo....might be the " lighting"...LMAO...we ladies know how to fall back on that old chestnut...


It's Daniel Jackson !!!!

Interesting Weekend - FAIL

Poor Thing.
SU has been down for the proverbial count all weekend.
Out of the blue on Friday night , hisself got sick as a DAWG .
Dropped his ass like a bad habit.
Bone aching, teeth chattering ( if he still had them) , 3 bankies on the bed commode hugging death watch time.
He doesn't by nature get sick, but kids....when he does....Holy Shit !
Needless to say, I spent all weekend taking care of the poor sod.
I didn't think about it really until one of the neighbors ( no...not the NG's ) asked if it was the seasonal flu .
Then it hit me.
Yes Kay, it is the seasonal flu and if you wait until the season is over, I am sure it will be marked down .
For what it's worth, he's had the flu shot.
Big Whoop.
I am beat to hell having done all of the usual plus take care of this will be short.
Have a great week.

I adore Julian Sands, I really do.
Beyond " Rooms With A View".
I loved the bit he did on SG1 as the Ori leader...fantastic part of the ending of a beloved show.
I was thrilled when I had heard via AIGN ( Ain't It Great News) that he had been cast as Jor-El.
Woo to the Hooo !!!!!!!!!
It almost made me forgive the jumping of the sharkiness with the friggan Zombies ( I mean really...just kill me now. You got rid of the Magnificent Bastard and his spawn...(bad ) and got rid of the squirrel ( finally!)....
ZOMBIES ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
WTF ????
But then you lured me back with Major Zod.
Nice bit of back story that .
But you couldn't even let Kal-El have more than 30 seconds with his father /father clone ?
And for what its money says that Shelby killed Jor-El.
Please Gaia don't renew for Season 10.
It's over.
I can't wait to see how they fuck up " Justice League".

What A Dumb Shit !

From Todays MSN:

Gilbert Harrison, with MCH Towing, attaches a towing cable to a Bugatti Veyron that was driven into the water near Omega Bay in La Marque, Texas.

LA MARQUE, Texas - A man blamed a low-flying pelican and a dropped cell phone for his veering his million-dollar sports car off a road and into a salt marsh near Galveston. The accident happened about 3 p.m. Wednesday on the frontage road of Interstate 45 northbound in La Marque, about 35 miles southeast of Houston.
The Lufkin, Texas, man told of driving his luxury, French-built Bugatti Veyron when the bird distracted him, said La Marque police Lt. Greg Gilchrist.
The motorist dropped his cell phone, reached to pick it up and veered off the road and into the salt marsh. The car was half-submerged in the brine about 20 feet from the road when police arrived.

Gilchrist said he doesn't know if the car was salvageable, but in his words, "Salt water isn't good for anything." He says the man, whose identity hasn't been released, was not injured.
Celebrity driverThe police declined to release the driver's name, although the incident has drawn a great deal of attention on his vehicle.

The Houston Chronicle reported the Texan has become something of a celebrity. He reportedly told the Texas City wrecker driver who towed his car that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called him Wednesday, along with several other celebrities.

“He said he was getting so many calls that he finally stopped answering his phone,” said wrecker driver Gilbert Harrison of MCH Truck and Auto, which is storing the car. But Harrison said the driver seemed to take his very expensive mistake in stride.

“He was calm,” Harrison told the Chronicle. “If it had been me, I'd have been cussing, but he was calm. I imagine inside he was probably pretty upset.”

The Bugatti Veyron is the fastest and most expensive production car in the world.
A 2006 Bugatti Veyron was recently offered for sale in Jonesboro, Ark., for $1.25 million.

This was on the local morning news and I just found the above on MSN.


Pelican my ass....he dropped his cell phone !

I have to wonder what kind of idiot drives a Bugatti around salt marshes in the first place.

He got what he deserved.

" If They Don't FInd Ya Handsome, At Least they Find Ya Handy "

A tip of the hat to " Red Green "

Men's Age as Determined by a Trip to Home Depot :
You are in the middle of some kind of project around the house , mowing the lawn, putting a new fence in, painting the living room, or whatever.
You are hot and sweaty, covered in dirt or paint.You have your old work clothes on.
You know the outfit - shorts with the hole in crotch, old T-shirt with a stain from who knows what,and an old pair of tennis shoes. Right in the middle of this great home improvement project you realize! you need to run to Home Depot to get some thing to help complete the job. Depending on your age you might do the following:
In your 20's:
Stop what you are doing. Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth, floss, and put on clean clothes. Check yourself in the mirror and flex. Add a dab of your favorite cologne because you never know, you just might meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout lane. And you went to school with the pretty girl running the register.
In your 30's:
Stop what you are doing, put on clean shorts and shirt.Change shoes. You married the hot chick so no need for much else. Wash your hands and comb your hair. Check yourself in the mirror. Still got it. Add a shot of your favorite cologne to cover the smell. The cute girl running the register is the kid sister to someone you went to school> with.
In your 40's:
Stop what you are doing. Put on a sweatshirt that is long enough to cover the hole in the crotch of your shorts. Put on different shoes and a hat. Wash your hands. Your bottle of Brute Cologne is almost empty so you don't want to waste any of it on a trip to Home Depot. Check yourself in the mirror and do more sucking in than flexing. The spicy young thing running the register is your daughter's age and you feel weird thinking she is spicy.
In your 50's:
Stop what you are doing. Put a hat on, wipe the dirt off your hands onto your shirt.
Change shoes because you don't want to get dog doo-doo in your new sports car.
Check yourself in the mirror and you swear not to wear that shirt anymore because
it makes you look fat . The Cutie running the register smiles when she sees you
coming and you think you still have it. Then you remember the hat you have on is
from Buddy's Bait & Beer Bar and it says, 'I Got Worms .'
In your 60's:
Stop what you are doing. No need for a hat anymore. Hose the dog doo-doo off your shoes.
The mirror was shattered when you were in your 50's. You hope you have underwear
on so nothing hangs out the hole in your pants. The girl running the register may be cute,
but you don't have your glasses on so you are not sure.
In your 70's:
Stop what you are doing. Wait to go to Home Depot until the drug store has your prescriptions ready, too. Don't even notice the> dog doo-doo on your shoes. The young thing at the register smiles at you because you remind her of her grandfather.

In your 80's:
Stop what you are doing. Start again. Then stop again. Now you remember you needed to go to Home Depot. Go to Wal Mart instead and wander around trying to think what it is you are looking for. Fart out loud and you think someone called out your name. You went to school with the old lady who greeted you at the front door .

She's Got More Guts Than I Ever Will.

See what I miss when I take a day off ?
Last Friday at the office the PTB's as usual allowed dress up for Halloween.
Bestus gal pal down here won for the above.
She is one of three best friends I on each coast and her holding down the local union jobbie.
Does Aunty Pol dress up ?
Lets see which disguise I might have chosen had I been so inclined :
1. The person who greets the new/current immigration client with no fear of the migraine that their abundant nasty ass florid incense style fragrance formerly triggered.
2. The person that happily allows and encourages the staff princess's and resident biotch's passive aggressive behavior cause it's just so darn cuuuuuutte.
3. The person who understands with compassion the emergency situation that you , poor baby find your self in because you were just too busy to pull your head out of your ass.
4. The person who sincerely gives more than one shit about you , your life, your worries, your picks for " Dancing with the Survivor who became America's Next Top Model and who's honeymoon was an Amazing Race.

Awwww....Isn't She Just The Cutest !

This is the light of my life, as Princess Jasmine this year for Halloween.
When did she get sooo big ?
And Happy Birthday to her daddy, my beloved nephew and Godson.
I still remember the phone call from his father who was stationed down here in San Antonio the day he was born...
Yep, lil darlin above can claim to be part Native Texan...oh hell yeah !

Braggin Rights Time

The above was " borrowed " from Miss Ree's PW site..for a reason.
She's having another contest, a " smarty pants" one that I came across.
She must have just posted it .
I entered it.
Usually with ALL of her contests, she literally has thousands of entries because she has the best prizes and we ...well....we just lubs her.
MY ENTRY is Numero Uno !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Number One Baby !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That in and of its self blows what little mind I have .
" You may already be a winner ".
Hell Yeah !
And the Amazon gift card would be nice too.

If It's Monday ~ It's John Barrowman Time ~!

Yes indeedy boys and girls , it's Barrowman time .

It's interesting how a show can evoke memories.

Yesterday , and I suspect for a few days more , the SciFi Channel ( I Loathe Their New Logo !)
has been running the original series " V " .

Yes , that one.

The one where Marc Singer still looked good , circa the original " BeastMaster." it.

I loved Kodo and Podo so I don't want to hear the snickering from the peanut gallery.

Besides, Singer's ass was pretty cute in that costume.


" V " circa 1983.

Before " Aliens" , there was 17 year old Robin , giving birth via C-section to human looking and one ....not so much. Still scary shit when the second not so human baby pops out...literally.

Before " Nightmare on Elm Street and Freddy Krueger, there was Willy played by Robert Englund. Aliens showing humanity to the humans..nice touch there Mork.

Sorry..but I dare you to tell me that those costumes on " V " did not beg for a " Shazzbot ".

Of the original eight hour series, you can mark the spot where Kenneth Johnson left the production.

Not even Michael Ironside who plays a bad ass like no one else could save the end.

Oh air balloons, cute blond hybrid child who is no longer the venom spitting tyke who kills ...because she can dammit.......bouncy uplifting closing music....

It was all I could do not to look for Lorne Green and the original voice over for BSG.


If you had told me that the series was done in 1973, that would have made more sense...but 1983 ?

I guess I will give the pilot a shot tomorrow...I'm gonna DVR it.

If you think I am gonna miss "NCIS" found this blog by mistake.

Consider yourself Dinozzo'd .

Aunty Pol

OMG - It's Bloody November !

Happy We All Survived Another Halloween People !
Mea Culpa for the lack of a Bruce of the day on Friday. I took the day off and with one thing and another never got the chance. That plus the fact that most of the photos are on the office pc.....well.....I'll double down next Friday...m'kay ?
After a year and a half, the SU prevailed over a completely bogus traffic ticket so we are pretty pleased that he doesn't have to keep taking yet another day off to fight the damn thing .Talk about a pain in the ass......!
We spent most of yesterday cooking....woo hoo.
We got to break in the dutch oven with PW's chili recipe which was great, and then of course had to do the stuffed Japs and I went ever so slightly nuts with some marinara, Italian sausage and capers of course so we have both lunches for each of us for the next week and some for the freezer in the garage.
SU has the coffee table completely stripped down so now all we have to do is go and pick out the slate for the top insert..hee hee...I only had to bitch for a couple of years...totally on course for us.
All of the kitty's were kept in last night and for once, thankfully there wasn't a lot of firecrackers in the neighborhood so they didn't get all freaked out. SU went to his favorite IceHouse and I stayed home to watch us get absolutely spanked by Notre Dame...dammit....!
Other than a promised cheesecake for his office, it's a lazy day. The weather for us is a lot cooler which is pretty weird but no rain...we are saturated at this point.
I'm off for a mani/pedi so have a great week.
