Friday Coffee Hour: Check In and Hangout for the Herd

Good morning, Moosekind. TGIF!

  PLEASE Do Not Recommend the check-in diary!

        Recs on the weather jar comment are still welcome.

Friday Coffee Hour and check-in is an open thread and general social hour.

It’s traditional but not obligatory to give us a weather check where you are and let us know what’s new, interesting, challenging or even routine in your life lately. Nothing is particularly obligatory here except:

Always remember the Moose Golden (Purple?) Rule:

Be kind to each other… or else.

What could be simpler than that, right?

    Headed for a high of 82 and muggy. Very humid, air so thick you could slice it. Weekend supposed to be gorgeous.


  2. It is 54 degrees now, 73 and sunny later. Perfect weather. Really.

    Busy day here. I hope to finish work by noon so that I can get out and enjoy the perfect weather. Lunch along the Rock River near Watertown, I think.

    I would like to hear a definitive statement from President Obama that we will NOT go back into Iraq. George W. Bush and his band of merry miscreants broke it and it is NOT our job to try to fix it. Let the ongoing chaos serve as a reminder of their incompetence and the foolishness of getting involved in people’s civil wars.  

  3. Diana in NoVa

    morning in NoVa, going for a high of 82 F.

    Iriti, hope you have air conditioning during this humid spell. Ours broke down but has just been repaired. Now it’s the dishwasher that’s broken down. Oh, and hubby’s computer has been acting up for ages, isn’t that great!

    Jan, couldn’t agree more about Iraq. You know that country was cobbled together by the British after or during World War I–the idiots completely ignored tribal loyalties and boundaries,just stuck the whole thing together like a croquembouche. Now it’s coming apart, violently. Life will be even more unpleasant for women than it already is when the new government has been established.

    Up early this morning after a particularly unpleasant dream about a krait forced me to wake up. Looking out at the drying street pavement and the lowering gray sky makes me think the hayride at summer day camp probably won’t happen this morning.

    Hope everyone will have a good day today!

    Quite a thunderstorm last night. Tornadoes in nearby counties, but I don’t think actually in town. I saw some branches down on the way in, and one intersection had police directing traffic. But there’s no low water crossings near me, so all is well.

    The storm woke me up a couple of times, as did my stomach. I think the sleep app that’s on my iPod is crap, it doesn’t show the 2 times I got up. It shows long periods of light sleep, a little deep sleep & the only “awake” is when it woke me up 15 minutes before I wanted up, because according to it’s calculations, that was the right part of my sleep rhythm. But I really like tucking it under my pillow & hearing the rain soundtrack through my pillow.

    Still don’t really feel fantastic. But I’m upright. Must eat so I can have caffeine.

    I’m really glad this week is nearly over. The rain makes it tempting to just pull the covers over my head but I’d best go to the pool instead.

    After that I have to fix one more computer snafu. In a hurry I ordered the wrong anti viral program from Kaspersky and the install got “stuck.” It’s unstuck now, but I need to order the right version and get a refund for the wrong order. It’s easier for me to do this via phone but looks like I’ll have to do it all online. Makes my head hurt.

    may or may not get rain over the weekend and “real” summer moving back in us next week – so time to enjoy the “now” :)  At least the best I can.  The Chair came back a day early.  And still becoming accustomed to having a lodger (and dog) – it’s only a week.  I’ll get there.  I hope.  Not fair to her to offer a low-cost lodging while she’s in grad school then say “never mind”.  And there are benefits to having another human being in the house.  For one thing, the cats have never mastered the “911” thing. :)

    Have a wonderful Friday 13th/full moon (don’t forget to wink at Neil Armstrong) and weekend in Moosylvania!
