Working For A Living

That’s about all I’m doing. Hell, I’m not even working for the weekend because I’ll be working all weekend.

Happy 11/11/11
I should have closed on my mortgage today, it would have made writing the date that much simpler. So hash ladies, is there an “All Chicks, No Dicks” hash today? It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been nearly 5.5 years since (06/06/06) since I was unceremoniously booed out of Graveyard Tavern for having the gall to show up where that hash ended while I was trying to chat up someone in whom I had much interest, only then to head home and encounter a bout of food poisoning from the dinner I had eaten earlier at Lettuce Souprise You (or maybe it was Cooties from being around all of the female hashers). It’s even harder for me to believe that seemingly every time I go onto Facebook it suggests that I become this woman’s “friend”. If only Facebook knew the anger I harbored when she told me on the phone that hanging out with me one night was a mistake. Ah technology…

Happy 3/3/3
There are only 10 types of people in the world — those that understand binary numbers and those that do not.

    You do know you can permanently kill a Facebook suggestion, yeah? Unless you like the torture.

    There IS a Chicks No Dicks hash tonight indeed. Decatur, and the on-after on-after is the H5 Happy Hours…so look! Things have changed in 5 years. We prefer dick at the end now. 🙂

  2. Martha says:

    Say it isn’t so Stacy. I did ACND last year (or was it the year before?) there were no dicks in sight, I was irked it ended up being a ‘real’ trail, I had to carry poor little Nibbles for about half of the trail (it was still pretty warm out).

    Good lord Paulie, let it go. I saw that person recently and you aren’t missing a thing. I never cared for her anyway and couldn’t figure out what you saw. Eating a grilled chesse sandwich with a knife and fork at Gravity? What the hell??

    I think the ‘quote’ is there are only 10 TYPES of people in the world…

    And yes, we probably did give you cooties but it’s your own fault for not getting your cootie shot 🙂

  3. I did not know that I could kill the suggestion. Thanks.

    I am like an elephant, though not as large, in that I never forget.

    There are 10 people in the world — those who can correctly edit their own work and those who cannot. 😀

    Thanks for correcting my math and grammar, ladies.

  4. Stacy Fox says:

    I totally want to know who eats grilled cheese with a knife and fork. They need to be punched in the face.


  5. She is/was a germaphobe (or whatever the term is for one afraid of germs).

    Years ago I knew (and should have dated) a girl named Sherri; she was as neat and proper as one can be. At a group lunch once I watched Sherri eat a portion of a large chunk of lasagna with a near surgeon’s precision and then was summarily horrified when the waitress took Sherri’s remaining lasagna and plopped it into a to-go container. Sherri’s reaction of disbelief was priceless.

  6. Barb says:

    I’m with Stacy – grilled cheese with a knife & fork? what the hell?

    I’ve been so busy with work, I didn’t even look up the All Chicks hash, but I have dinner plans tonight anyway. Schneider (a Green Bay based company – I’m sure Stacy knows that 😉 is taking me & Allan – I made them invite him too -& some other co-workers out to Ray’s on the River. Nice expensive bottle of wine & food are in my future.

  7. Martha says:

    No Hash for me either, leaving for Columbus this afternoon.

    Gravity is probably not the best place for a germaphone (or anyone really) to grab a bite to eat….

  8. No hash for me either because, well, I can’t “woman up”

  9. Stacy Fox says:

    No hash for me – I’m fixin to put up my Christmas tree tonight (hey! don’t judge!).

  10. StIt was already my Friday offeve says:

    I don’t know what eating with a knife and fork has to do with being a germaphobe. I’m sure she washed her hands before eating if she was a true germaphobe. I don’t get being a hasher and a germaphobe.. either you’re into dirt, or not.

    It was already my Friday off, but to have the day off anyway and a holiday is sort of a bonus. As long as the rest of these folks get out of my way.

    I thought GT was going to pull it out last night, but it was not to be.


  11. Steve says:

    Apparently my cursor jumped…

  12. Funny Steve, I had to approve your first comment because your cursor jumped into your name field.

  13. Barb says:

    this message is specifically for Besty – I just got back from Zaxbys & thought about you………
    And- ready to do BRAG again next year? I’m sure we can get you your Zaxbys fix then.

    And- anyone else that might be interested in BRAG – looks like it will be a northern route, Chattanooga area down to Roswell for the overnight stop, then back up north to Lake Hartwell. I think it will be fun, and oh so nice to get to go home in the middle of the week (drop off stinky clothes, sleep in my own bed with a/c, etc.)

  14. bets says:

    ZAXBY’s…….ZAXBY’s… (said like “BRAINS” by zombies)..Nothing will be like my first in Metter, Georgia June 2011….sigh. Thanks for thinking of me Barb. I

    I was around for that 6 6 6 ACND hash and believe that was my first and last one. 5.5 years ago? ….good gravy. And if I recall, Paulie, you were gently chided for being there, not booed unceremoniously. Furthermore, if my wine-addled brain recalls, me and this pariah person invited you.

    and please please let the past go. drop it like a hot coal into the fire. poof!

    And I missed something about gravity and the grilled cheese knife and fork thing. I don’t really have an opinion. Just am now sort of craving a grilled cheese sandwich.


    good luck with Soldier’s Marathon Martha–In your honor I’ll be toddling along on the Serenbe 15K trail tomorrow. Good chance you’ll beat my time.

  15. bets says:

    English major insert: “This pariah person and I invited you.” Had to self-correct.

  16. Jenka says:

    Good luck on the marathon tomorrow, Martha! You are lucky you didn’t go to the gym today, the Veteran’s Day WOD was PURE HELL. You would’ve loved the 70 wall balls.

    Betsy, my friend Di is also doing the Serenbe tomorrow. Have fun!

  17. ’tis true. 😉

    Betsy, I’ll give you confirmation if it is going to happen, but I’m being told that I might be shipped out to Denver for Wednesday and Thursday next week. Ugh.

  18. bets says:

    Shipped out to Denver? Like you’re a canned ham or a fruitcake?

    Tell them that is not possible and this conflicts with Top Chef Texas and the beginning of BetsyFest.

    They will understand.

  19. Rational thinking has escaped people at my company. I’ll be back by Friday ready to help you continue with BetsyFest.
