Random 5 Friday – 12/12

It’s Friday! It’s Random! Here we go …

1.  I work with someone who lies.  A lot.  He lies so much he forgets which lies are which and gets tangled up in them, like someone trying to walk through a jump rope.  One of these days he’s gonna get busted and land on his face and  I kinda hope I’m around when it happens.

Karma's coming!

Karma’s coming!

2. Monday I endured 5 – count em- 5 hours in the Dental chair.  4 old crowns were sawed off and I was prepped for 4 new ones.  My face still hurts and soup is my new best buddy.  Bah!

3.  Speaking of today, I’m off to meetings at the Capitol.  Ever heard the term “Lame Duck?”  Quack Quack 🙂

4. It’s Friday and I am this happy about it!



Tonight we’re meeting friends for drinks & yums at a cool old burger joint downtown. Tomorrow night is bowling with friends and Sunday? Sunday I’ll just collapse :).

5.  Saw a great clip this week that helped me in my quest to dodge Holiday stress:


Happy  Friday! What’s on your agenda this weekend?

  1. Pretty cool #5. I’m going to share with daughters. Have a great evening and Saturday night.

  2. Starting my weekend with a funeral but it goes uphill from there. Four crowns at one time? That would take a lot of drugs for me to do. Hope the burger joint has soup (or maybe a blender?) for you. Enjoy!

    • Sorry to hear about the funeral … but you’re right, the day only goes uphill from there.

      9 shots of freezing later that’s partly why I am still so sore, I think.

      The burger was amazing but it took me a long time to eat it, brought 1/2 home for the kid. we had a great time in spite of my stupid dental pain!!


  3. Hey, love your list! I agree about the lying…such a bad habit, to say nothing of the lack of integrity displayed. Hope you get your wish and see the comeuppance! Sorry about the dental marathon…I know that’s no fun! Love your number 5…saw this one also just recently. Perfect! ~ Sheila

    • I don’t want to be too close by in case someone else loops me in with him — I hate liars! UGH!

      The dental joy continues but is slowly subsiding. It isn’t helped by the fact that I wear a bite guard b/c I clench my teeth in my sleep – so that clenching is aggravating things every night .. geez Louise.

      The # 5 was just perfect for me this week 🙂 Happy day to you, Sheila!

  4. Wow, tough week. I would have struggled to get beyond #1 and #2.

    • Thanks, David. #1 – going on for years, #2 – subsiding but still there … the rest? Muddling through 🙂 The burger Friday night was great but it took me a long time to eat just 1/2 of it. Maybe Dental Dilemmas = weight loss? Ha!


  5. Your Friday rambles are so interesting. Sorry anout the tooth thing and your lying coworker. But bowling and burgers followed by collapse sound delightful.

    • Thank you, Dor. I use the Friday Rambles as a way to purge all of the “at the surface” stuff from the week. Give Noche an extra cuddle from me, please.

      Off to the grocery store then cooking then a collapse 🙂 MJ

  6. I saw that same list on Facebook last week and it really spoke to me, so I shared it there. It’s a good one!

    Hope your dental pain is easing up!

  7. Five hours with the dentist? My jaws feel for you. #4 is priceless!

  8. I’m late to the party, but I’ll play. This week I’m making a few things to become Christmas presents. One of them is a few new flavors of lip balms and a new body balm. And I’m making a few pendants putting my nature photos under glass. Can’t wait to make the Cardamom Vanilla Lip Balm!

    Sorry you have to work with a liar. I do hope you get to see him running down the hall with his pants on fire. And I hope by now your mouth is feeling better. Have a good rest of your week!

    • I love that you make your own body and lip balms – nice!

      Your image of him running down the hall with his pants on fire made me giggle – good stuff!! MJ
