Since I've been an inattentive Shanslander lately I thought I'd go through my piccys and give you a huge smattering of them. I'll try to keep my discussions to a minimum and give you a broad range of events that I might have blogged about had I not been so busy being "oot and aboot" as our Canadian neighbors would say.
Let's start off with a couple of trips out with my friends. In celebrations of various sorts(and trust me I'm not even sharing all of them). I found myself twice recently at the same place called HUGO'S, which I hadn't actually been to for years.
First was Becky Bleus Birthday Bash(a nice alliteration for the English scholar that she is).
(Trish, Jenna, Becky)
We saw a movie afterwards so this was our attempt to get a picture of ourselves in the theater. I had to concentrate really hard to include the others in the shot because I kept just taking pictures of my own giant melon.
(Jenna, Trish, Becky, Shan)
Let's keep this rolling to the next visit to Hugo's which was last week in celebration of our dear friend Shelley who is moving to New York in 4.6 days. BOO! Why do people leave? BOO!! BOO!!
Trish, extreme social butterfly, literally can manage to make it to ANY event you are able to schedule. She is a Clockstopper (and an extrovert with a capital E) and always manages to be enjoying herself in the midst of it all! Just when I get cocky and start thinking I can do this, something switches off in my brain and I dart for cover bolting the door behind me.
Oh yes, I wasn't going to start rambling was I? Here's the second group with Trish and Shan as common denominators.
(Joy, Hannah, Shelley, Tab)

And then Jamey decides to take his turn as a socialite. Sunday night he went out with 7-ish dudes and then brought them all home for a movie afterwords. I had to speed unload and reload the dishes all the while tap dancing with rags on each foot to quick clean the floors for the "surprise" drop-ins. I really should do more daily maintenance.

This is how I distract people who are trying to look at a neglected part of my house. "Have you seen my lillies? Aren't they pretty?" casually scooting them out the front and away from a dusty piece of furniture.
Of course, we could just move out to the prairie and no one would ever drop by to see us. This is a house on ten acres we looked at last week. BAH-HA! I think it's funny too. Get a load of the mow job we'd be taking on. Oh, and I might not be able to stay there at night either which would be tricky. But the view was delicious indeed! Too bad the house was a little small. It was almost perf.....OK! I know you are still laughing at City Mouse. I can hear you!!
So there's yet another haphazard wrap up. Can you tell I'm a procrastinating poster? I guess I like to do my blog newspaper style and give a little synopsis of my world at large. Tomorrow I've got about 14 things to do so it's possible I'll be rambling again soon at a blog near you. You want to keep up, but not THAT close? Alright, I understand. ;) Signing off.
