Catching Up.

Written by sally @ 1:40 pm — Section: sally

I’ve been out of the office (and out of town) the past few days, but I’m home for lunch and wanted to update, at least just to say hello.

–The nanogenarian birthday party was, as expected, terribly exciting. While we were in Memphis Larry’s dad bought us an awesome rug at the Pottery Barn outlet store — it was originally $600 and was super reduced to $50! A giant, 8′ x 10′ wool rug! Hooray! Here’s Pete enjoying it:

–Recent vanity plates:

LADE BK
CHIMERA

–I had a dream the other night that I went to Sarah Brown‘s brother’s birthday party. It was in a loft and it had a small bowling alley set up that was meant to look like a hillbilly shack. I never saw Sarah or her brother, but I was wearing a sparkly party dress, so it’s probably for the best.

–The babies Floon are doing well and their mama was released from the hospital yesterday. I’m sure her other babies — the dogs and the cat — appreciate that.

–I mentioned that I’ve been out of the office the past few days. What I didn’t mention was that the guys I’m working with have exquisite nicknames. My favorites? Spit and Pee Wee.

–Has anybody read Carter Beats the Devil? I just started it.

    What this picture doesn’t do justice do is the richly deep wine-color of the carpet–it’s a really, really nice rug, made all the better for its insane cheapness! You got it at 92% off!!

    We got it 100% off. Larry’s dad got it for 92 1/2% off. Sorry, I am doing accounting today, and everything must be precise.

    Unrelated FYI: When the water department cashes your checks 5 and 3 months late, doesn’t credit your account on the checks they cashed, and still charges you a late penalty, it is a pain in the ass to remedy. But on the bright side, if you don’t pay your water bill for 6 months, it’s nice to know it won’t get cut off.

    Unless, you know, you live next door to Sally, and then they’ll cut MY water off, and still leave hers on . . .
