Back To Business

*heavy sigh*

Back to business as usual.

  • Thank goodness the summer has finally arrived here in the East, because its about time. At least we will have one month of a warm summer. Lucky us!

  • IHop announces that kids eat free for a MONTH. Too bad I haven't seen an IHop in my area since 1977.

  • Tiger Woods-defeated for the first time in nine years in a major tournament when leading the field. If you're Y.E. Yang today, life is good.....

  • Did you see the picture of the couple with the squirrel? Of course the skeptics are questioning the authenticity of the shot, but OMG, is that squirrel the cutest thing you have ever seen?? He could be the next Susan Boyle of the critter world.

  • We are just a few short weeks away from the start of the NFL season. Thank you JESUS. I still need to sign up for Fantasy Football. I figure we will engage in Fantasy Football Friday's here on The Dandy. Whatcha think?

  • I'm in NYC for the International Gift Show for one day today. Keep your little fingers crossed that I get done everything that I need to do in one day. Thanks.

  • We ate at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill last night after I got off the train. Let's just say while the food was good, mine was cold (and I'm NOT a "sender backer") but had to send back my entree, because it was that cold. Then they comped us dessert, which was a heavenly coconut cake, then took a ridiculously long time getting us the check. It ruined the entire night.

  • Speaking of "food sender backers", I think we will discuss this topic in depth tomorrow.

Yup, it seems to be business as usual today. I'll check in later bloggers!

Hey GIRL!!! Welcome back.

Couldn't help but notice that pre-season hockey didn't get a mention on your post. What up, sista?

Scope said...

Welcome home - Don't be too paranoid (like I was with my Friday posts that I would recommend you read) if it seems like you blog isn't getting much action. It's not showing an update in blogger (I'm walking my blogs manually, because I care.)

Now the real topic. Vick and the Eagles. Discuss. (Okay, whole blog topic in itself.)

Word ver: grici.
Response U-R Welcome.

I took Scope's advice and walked the blogs manually today since none of them are showing in my Reader.

I think the weather where a person lives is never the "right" weather. You're praising the beginning of summer finally, and I'm shaking my fist at it being too hot and humid to BREATHE here!

Welcome back, you were missed. Lets go football season, take away 2 pre season games and make the regular season 18 games.

Welcome back! You were missed. Thanks for the news recap, don't forget to recap this year's Dancing With The Stars condenders for the next season. I don't watch the show, but I may this year, just to watch Tom DeLay fall on his arse!

That's a lot going on...

What's up with the squirrl?? I didn't see any squirrl....

Sender least it was a classy restaurant...not Baker's Square

When sending a meal back - also send back the bottle of wine which is almost empty ... just say it took a few sips to realize how bad it tasted.

As everyone said, welcome back!

Prunella Jones said...

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.

Well the blogs have not changed since you hung around,
And those posts have remained and they're still around.

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

I had a shit dinner at the Mesa Grill in Vegas a few years ago. Bobby Flay? I am not impressed.
