Hand me downs

A large family equals lots of hand me downs. Unfortunately CEM is so picky that the Skinners were the happy recipients this week end

Google it

This weekend we were trying to determine Bryan Adams age (he is coming in concert and we were trying to determine if he was 43 or 80).

So I asked the back seat to google it. We quickly determined his age. CEM then says ,"why doesn't anyone ever say - yahoo it"

If you care he is 51.

Oh $%#@&$

Tarzan is a self proclaimed car clean freak. Not happy at the JS's trunk he decided to help clean up.

What he wasnt prepared for was the heads smiling at him hanging out among the mess.

The tools of the hair dressing trade turned into amusement for all for what was admitedly an oh &$#$ moment.

Open letter to Howard Schultz

Ok, I buy into one store, one barista, one great cup of coffee.

I do not care for the new fall drink slogan "Take comfort in rituals". Why not just say "We want you addicted" or "Let us be your habit of choice"

Boots in the City

Originally I was going to post a picture of this outfit with the title Goodwill in the City (leather jacket $9.99, jeans $6.99, boots $7.99 / second picture posted for effect) posed in front of Pier 39 in San Francisco.

That all changed when I saw these Uggs. 2011 Laura may splurge on the $140 boots (shut up REM and Sydney).

This morning while doing my hair I declare how much I hate it (hair appointment 10/2). CEM says,"just do that thing where you rat rat rat to get volume then pull it up, it always looks good".

Since I am not a certified blogger for the company I work for, I must put a disclaimer that this is the opinion of one amused employee.

In the new recognition tool the nominator and manager have the ability to print certificates for "on the spot awards".

In all available languages and 160 countries, the descriptive thank you is in latin.

The company logo was not included in the photo

Happy belated Labor Day

If you weren't a Young is Mesa here is what you missed:

-7.5 hours at Sunsplash (at least 8 times around the lazy river, old fashion slide riding with the 40's crowd, Master Blaster too many times to count with Eathan and Camdyn, the red/white neck ripper as loved by Clark and Miranda, the new ride as loved by the 30's crowd and Rachel, the lily pads with Sophia and Raea, wave pool with stupid life preservers for poor Herston and Larissa, the mom who wouldn't stop and the dad who gave great wisdom at base camp
-Dinner for 18 at Garcia's

Great time had by all!!!!
