Three Things

Welcome to Three Thing Thursday, where everyone's encouraged to share a minimum of three random thoughts.  Some of us have trouble selecting which random thoughts to share, while others of us have trouble sticking to the suggested number of three.  Since all her thoughts are random, Chesapeake Bay Woman struggles with everything both. 

Let's begin.

1. Yesterday at 4:00 as I left my office, I actually kicked my feet up Rockettes style and blew kisses to my coworkers on my way out the door.   This is because I am officially off from the paying job until July 11. Although there is plenty of work to be done, including some never ending lingering issues with the book and lots of work to do around the house, I am so looking forward to next week when I'll be spending quality time with my extended family including my two crazy sisters.

2. Another reason for my jubilance was that I was going to meet a friend I hadn't seen in 25 years.  The story of this friendship has all the makings of a great movie, and one of these years days I plan to write it all down. In the interim, I am sharing a link to a clip that my friend sent me which perfectly describes our unusual friendship.  Click here to see it - it's worth the click.

3. My laptop, which was on loan from another friend for purposes of doing the book, is dying. So the past few nights I've been using my ancient PC which is slower than molasses in January and eaten up (or ate up, as we like to say around here) with problems.  At the same time, the cell phone which I've had  since Alexander Graham Bell invented it for over four years has been alternating between dying on me and running so hot that it's burning a hole in my head hand.  All these signs point to one conclusion:  CBW hates change and would rather endure the agony of eternal loading times than buy a new Anything CBW hates change and would rather endure the agony of scorched flesh and eternal loading times than buy a new Anything.

Now it's your turn to share three things.  If you can't think of anything, perhaps you could think of an unusual friendship that withstood the test of time.

1. I shall be kicking up my heels as well.. tomorrow afternoon I leave for a rendezvous on the Eastern shore with a really hot fireman for a week long roller derby training camp followed by a tournament at the end.

2. In light of above I am dying my hair pink and cutting it in a awesome cute spiky do.

3. Also in light of above the translation of the sentence is DON'T LOOK FOR ME I WON'T BE FOUND.

the end

1. I have finally bitten the bullet. After 25 years of dyeing my hair.... I have gone back to my roots (haha!). Yes, it is now suddenly, entirely, and quite shockingly, 100% silver;

2. I have dislocated my coccyx. Again. Not related to the hair thing;

3. I would totally, TOTALLY lend you my Macbook Air if we lived several hundred miles closer. Not, I realise, that is any help whatsoever.

1. Trying to figure out how someone dislocates their butt bone. I have several theories, none of which are accurate I'm sure.

2. I am heading to Deltaville today after work with the kiddos... I will be there until Monday the 4th so if anyone is bored, give me a holler.

3. Looking forward to Heritage Day Saturday in Dville... promises to be a great time with vendors, a parade with every shriner in VA riding every kind of mini car imagineable, a ballgame in a 1940's ballpark and fireworks.
