A Dry Touch

    I'm a day late and more than a dollar short.
    Andi, you're not a sweet eater, but Lauren and I have been going to this great frozen yogurt place-Pinkberry. They have original yogurt which isn't sweet. Then there are all kinds of toppings.
    My treat--frozen yogurt for everyone. Sounds like a bit of pampering is due for many of us.

    Wonderful Weds. for All. Appreciating blog buddies and those that need our thoughts and prayers and positive energy.

  2. Thanks, Lisa. I do like some frozen yogurt (Stoneyfield Farms Java, frex) but for my birthday I had a different "sweet" treat -- a birdy bar (sunsflower, sesame and flax seeds and nuts, glued together with a little honey, cane syrup, and rice syrup). So not to worry. :)

  3. Andi!!! We missed your birthday?? Shame on us. Hope it was utterly fabulous!

    I'm v. glad it's Wednesday and one day closer to the weekend. I've been working on updating HR policies/benefit program info, etc. and omg, soooo bored. Most of what I've been doing is transferring the information to our company wiki, so a lot of my day is spent cutting & pasting text and reformatting it.

    Sigh. The glamorous life of an author, right? ::g::

    Thanks for the kind words yesterday, I really needed them!

    Here's hoping the rest of the week will be amazing for us all.

  4. I discovered Pinkberry in San Diego, Lisa - yum yum. Good thing it's not around the corner!!

    Glad you had a good day, andi!

    Just think job security, Maria...

    Meeting a blog buddy for coffee this morning, then a HS friend for lunch. Tomorrow early I drive to Fairhope, AL for a weekend music fest. Where I should hear my songs played for the first time live, woo hoo! If I can figure out how to take a video on my camera, I will.

    Have a great hump day, y'all! Waving from Houston...

  5. Happy b-day, Andi! Other end of the month from Mason's…

    Lisa, do you think the kiddos would respond well to frozen yogurt?

    Maria, I know what you're going through. i'm trying to document this gateway configuration system, consisting primarily of "get" and "set" a huge steaming pile of variables whose descriptions are sketchy at best. I managed yesterday to take what I'd done already and make a big CSV-formatted database out of it, which loaded easily into a spreadsheet for further editing and control (i.e. some of the variables aren't supported at the moment). The fun part is getting back out… looks like the best way to go is export as CSV again, then use a script to convert that back to table markup. Fortunately, I found a CSV parser so the heavy lifting is already done. The rest is grunt work.

    Beth — YOUR songs? What have I missed???

  6. Happy birthday, Andi! Hope you had a wonderful day.

  7. Happy Hoary Marmotini,(pasta) Andi!!

    I bet you're still getting carded at the pub.

  8. Thanks for the birthday wishes, everybody. And for those who like to make permanent notation of such momentous events, yesterday was the actual date of my birth.

    Janet, the only place I want to get carded is the Social Security administration ... and alas, I have two more years to go for that.

  9. I'm writing songs for my friend John Reno - the singer whose dog I watched this winter. He does the music, I do the lyrics. I think 5 of my songs are on the new CD. I'll be sure to make it available once it's out, and anyone who wants can buy one and hear my stuff. It's pretty exciting! Who knew I could write songs??

  10. looks like I'm very late to the party, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Andi!

  11. Whoa! That's really nifty, Beth. Can't wait to hear the results of your collaboration.
