Thank Goodness Friday Fragments

My weekly post that joins with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

I'll start off with the stupid criminal. Two men robbed several homes in a nearby county. They were pretty easy to find. The police just followed the footprints in the snow. Guess Oklahomans just aren't used to crime in winter.

Last night was my annual sushi/martini night with a friend. I know it sounds like a weird combination but we always get the special holiday chocolate peppermint martini and they are to die for. The sushi was extra good this year. Now I just have to remember which ones they were so we can order them next time.

This week I spent now one but two days in meetings with powerpoint presentations that were done via videoconference. Both were sufficiently boring to make me wonder what I was even doing there. At least I didn't fall asleep and start snoring. Looking bored was probably bad enough.

The Christmas tree is officially non-topped. We just don't like any of the angels/stars we've bought for the tree so we are going to wait and try again next year. It doesn't look bad without anything on top so I'm ok with that right now.

Yesterday when I filled up with gas the shutoff didn't work. So about 1/2 gallon of gas spilled over the side of my car. I was super lucky and not get any on my clothes or coat. I tried wiping it off with paper towels which helped. Today it's raining so I'm hoping that maybe more will wash off.

This week Year Without a Santa Claus was on. I taped it just so I could watch the Snow Miser/Heat Miser song. I've even kept it with that place on the DVR so I can watch it again. I love Snow Miser but Heat Miser has the better backup dancers. Snow Miser is even my profile pic on Facebook currently.

Whitney comes home today for four weeks. She is working two of them back at school but she can commute to do that.

Wednesday Dan and I took the orientation class at the gym. A personal trainer walks you through machines and gets you set with where to put the settings and you actually do a workout. Two days later and I'm still sore in some places. Guess I really should go back and work the muscles again.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll be spending it at church a lot for the spectacular. I can't wait to see what is in store this year.


  1. Martinis and sushi sounds good to me. I last had a martini and a fried shrimp poboy. It was fantastic!

  2. I don't drink however your martini sounds good. Have a good weekend.

  3. Currently, we are topless, too. My angel is somewhere lost in a myriad of boxes at my parent's house. Time to find my own storage I think!
    I love sushi and I love martinis so I have no trouble with that combo!

  4. I LOVE that song!!!
    That martini sounds heavenly. I'll have to try to find a recipe online!

  5. We just watched that movie! We watch it every year and my kids talk about the Snow Miser and the Heat Miser all year long! Such classic characters!

  6. Ha! Footprints! That's maybe the best one yet. Also, that peppermint martini sounds delish!

  7. What a great post! A martini sounds great! :)
