Lanette is...

- stealing this multiple status idea from Kelsey

- supposed to be at work in 14 minutes but is going to swing around to the Starbucks before she heads to the office where she'll be the only one working because it's a PTO

- saying don't feel sorry for me, I took last Friday off in lieu of this Friday

- wearing her brand spankin' new Enderby Fire Department hoodie because she hearts her daddy (especially for getting Kels and me these lovely hoodies)

- wishing she was sippin' on a Pina Colada in the Dominican...where she was exactly one year ago today

- cheering Happy 1st Anniversary Penni and Brendan

- glad it's the weekend

- heading to work now.

Care for a drink?

Brodie says this contraption represents the best 15 bucks we've ever spent. He was not leaving Wal-Mart without it.

From left to right: light rum, dark rum, vodka.

PS- one pump equals exactly one shot. I do have to admit, it could come in pretty handy

Music to my eyes

Obviously I've been feeling uninspired lately (and by uninspired I mean completely bogged down by freaking work!!!) because it's been almost two whole weeks since I've blogged.

Don't get too excited though, this post isn't inspiring. Rather, it's a little fun, and comes from a little post Nick made two days ago called "Trivia Time".

In copycat fashion, I'm going to follow his lead and do the same. Below, you will find the first lines to 25 random songs generated not by my I-pod, but by Windows Media Player. You may find it shocking to know that I'm one of those people who doesn't own an I-pod and really has no desire to own an I-pod. Perhaps I will write a separate post on that topic one day.

For now, I'll stick to the game. Take a look at the first lines to the songs below and see if you can guess 'em. Put your answers in the comments section at the bottom of the post. And, in Nick's words: try to avoid Googling everything you cheatin' [expletive]s.

1. Children behave, that's what they say when we're together
2. You're a real tough cookie with a long history
3. Sometimes I just feel I've got to run away
4. We are the crowd, we're c-comin' out
5. Get up, Get up, get busy, do it
6. I'm not lovin' you the way I wanted to
7. Oh my love, my darlin', I longed for your touch
8. Gravity is workin' against me
9. Just as I thought it was goin' alright, found out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
10. Boys call you sexy, and you don't care what they say
11. When the road gets dark and you can no longer see, let my love throw a spark
12. 5:15 a.m., snow layin' all aroud, a collier cycles home from his nightshift underground
13. Let me tell y'all a little story about this time I was downtown
14. Is she really going out with him? Well there she is, let's ask her.
15. It's hard for me to say the things I want to say sometimes
16. On a lonesome highway east of Omaha, you can listen to the engine's moaning out a one note song
17. Does he love me? I want to know.
18. Well you've filled up my head with so many lies, twisted my heart until something snapped inside
19. Give me just a little more time, and our love will surely grow
20. When you light those candles up there on that mantle, settin' the mood
21. I don't want to be the girl who laughs the loudest
22. Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leavin'
23. We got problems, we don't know how to solve 'em.
24. I never had no one I could count on, I've been let down so many times
25. An address to the golden door, I was strumming on the stone again

And, one big P.S.:- this took A LOT longer than I thought it would
