chirp, chirp…

I know, I know, I’m SO remiss on posts, I’d be surprised if anyone’s still around.

A lot going on, just not much time or energy to blog these days. I haven’t forgot about you amazing internets, I’ve just been a bit swamped.

I actually CALLED, as in, on the phone – spoke to a good pal of mine who’s been having a run of the yuck and the suck lately. Just because I was thinking about her. Feel free to go send her some sugar, m’kay? And um, maybe some shoe coupons, because we promised each other to go shoe shopping soon!

Did I mention that my 20, as in TWENTY year High School reunion is this summer? Thanks to Facebook, I’ve reconnected with a lovely handful of folks that I quite enjoyed, but never stayed in touch with. It also amazes me that some of the people that made fun of you, or teased you, or were general little shits are actually pretty nice people once they get a few years away from the walls of High School. I guess that applies to most of us, actually.

I’m still not sure if I can go or not, because well, there’s that whole “how many days of work vacay do I have left?,” and “I’m trying to plan a trip across the pond to see Amy,” and of course, the “oh yeah, right, I work for a Synagogue, and the end of August is WAY too close to the Chagim to even think of leaving my desk” time of year… SO time will tell. If I can sneak away for the weekend, we’ll see.

So in the interest of quantity, not quality 😉 I present you with the following meme – I stole it from Insane Animals – feel free to do the same:
