And Deb B. - you seem to be missing too. Where the heck are you gals???

I'll second that. I do remember Valli being sick last week. Could she still be sick? Hope not!!!

Have they all run off together? I'm seriously getting worried about Valli b/c she usually PMs me every few days and I've heard nothing - nada - zilch! If any of you are around, would you PLEASE check in with us.

Wow -- it's nice to be missed! I'm not even sure that my husband and daughter realized I was absent this week. I was visiting family in California, and, incredibly enough, had no computer access. But I'm back, busily reading through all the postings I missed -- and will soon be adding my own scintillating, erudite, illuminating, and generally brilliant posts.  wink

(So, where's Valli?)

I see we've accounted for some of our buds.  Still no Valli, though, eh?  She probably has her nose buried in a book and has lost track of time and us.  She'll be back!

Well, phew! I'm so glad that Evelina and Deb are present and accounted for! It's terrible when people just fall off the end of the earth. ;-) I finally had to give in and call Valli. She arrived home just a few hours before I called and I am happy to report that she is okay. I will let her explain her whereabouts for the last week + !! Now I think that I can sleep tonight. Don't any of you people EVER just disappear like that with no word! And I MEAN it!! So there!

Vicky<----gulps her hot coffee too quickly, realizing that Jeanne is tough and may have acquired a wet noodle.

 

Welcome back everyone!

Jeanne doesn't get the wet noodle until she's willing to lead the HF challenge. I'm pretty sure Valli (who is conveniently missing) made that rule. devil

(Frantically searches for wet noodle ...)

Nah, I don't have a wet noodle - just too many years behind me!! Let's let some other unsuspecting dear member have a chance at the next HF challenge, okay? wink

I think we should make a rule when one of us disappears the the others get to wildly speculate about what they are doing.

Like I think Valli was carried off by pirates but really they were the cast and crew of the Black Pearl and she has been hobnobbing with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, in the Caribbean.  She will have a small but memorable role as bookish but hot Lady Penelope Atwater who becomes the pirate wench that steals Captain Jack's heart. 

Deb, had actually been tapped to ghostwrite "Snooki's" soon to be released novel about the Jersey Shore.

Evelina, it will be reported, has finally found definitive proof that the Chupacabra is real.

I'm back! I'm sorry for running off and leaving you guys hanging! We had a death in the family so I had to go quickly and unexpectedly. My brother in law's mother died. I didn't know her very well, so I offered to watch their 3 kids while they traveled to the funeral.

I had to go babysit in a tiny Alabama town with no wireless!!! I have had no internet and it's been awful. My phone wouldn't even get a signal at their house. I had to walk to the end of their long, LONG driveway just to get my phone to work. So, I was standing beside a 5 lane highway desperately trying to get my phone to go online, lol. I could get it to load PBS and then it would just sit there, wouldn't do anything else. I could see PBS, but I couldn't use it. Talk about frustrating!

I've learned one thing this week...Never volunteer to babysit kids in a place where there is no internet. I went into a major PBS withdrawal pretty quickly. ;-)

It was worth it to get a phone call from Jeanne though! She sounded just like I thought she would with a nice, smooth professional sounding voice, but now she knows that I sound like a Southern Minnie Mouse. Actually, I'm still sick so I sound like Redneck Minnie Mouse Has A Head Cold.  :-D

I missed you guys!!!!

Oh, wait, just ignore that last post. I really was in the Carribean with Johnny Depp. Yep, that's actually what happened. ;-)

The Black Pearl was built about 3 miles from my house. It looks a lot smaller and even puny in real life. I wish I'd only seen it on film.

Whoooaaaa -- how come Valli gets to hobnob with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom and I'm stuck with Snooki???!!!!??  What did I do to deserve that?? I may have to search for another forum in which to hang out....

What or Who the heck is Snooki??? You will have to tell me about that Deb and then have a talk with Letty!!

Valli - you don't sound at all like Minnie Mouse - Southern or Northern! You've got a cute Southern accent and I was so relieved to hear your voice- even if it would have sounded like nails on a blackboard!  If my voice sounded smooth and professional, it must've been because I was so relieved. If I'd been upset and hollering, i could probably take the paint off walls!!!

Welcome back all of you - don't leave us like that again, you hear!

Snookie is one of the actresses on a program I've never seen called Jershey Shore, or something like that. She's the young gal who got stinkin drunk and did something on the beach that landed her in court. The radio played back a snippet from the trial where the judge reamed her a new you-know-what. Then the announcer asks Snookie to respond.

She whines how mean this judge is because he fined her and basically lectured her about acting like an adult. Yeah, so cruel. Where do all the snivelling brats (Lindsay Lohan types) come from?

Deb, if you're ghostwriting for her, slap some sense into her.

The grouch is going back into her cave ...
