Yup, it’s true! Unfortunately today is a serious work day (weeds don’t wait) and I can’t really do much more than tease.

Maybe I’ll start a thread in BWW - if it’s still around - in a day or two? Just for the heck of it (because the details are MEAGER)? We’re heading out on a road trip soon which should give some time to post, at least when we’re in cell range!

I could not be happier for you!!! Very thrilling! And share when you can!!:appl::appl:

Someone sent me three dozen red roses (!) for V day... and I have no idea who!

The flowers went to my address downtown and I got them a few days ago when I ran by to check on the place. My name and address were on a sticker affixed to the outside plastic so I know they were actually meant for me, but if there was ever a card inside it must have fallen out. For the life of me I just cannot think of who would have done this... ?!?


@Dee*Jay , Did you find out who sent the roses? Is there a way to find out?

I was just asked to give a one sentance synopsis of my job for an inter-company newsletter article.
"Kick ass data fairy"
If they don't know what I do yet, why should I spoil the fun?

Hahaha LOVE it. And you sure are girl. You are the best kick ass data fairy ever. XOXO.

My boyfriend bought me a bouquet of mixed flowers from Costco -- the last ones in the whole store! -- on Feb. 13. Definitely not three dozen red roses, but I'll take those over "mystery flowers" any day. I'm still l flummoxed...

Haha yes for sure. Flowers from the boyfriend are way better than any number of dozens of roses from an unknown admirer. I am not surprised though that you have admirers. You are one great girl who rocks. :sun:

Callie, I can't think of how... If there was a note in one of those little envelopes it may have had the name of the florist, but without that... ? I asked the doorperson on duty, but we have about a dozen of them and the delivery was several days prior. When we get regular deliveries they go to the receiving room but he said on a day life V-Day with a lot of flower deliveries they bring them right to the door of the residence as a courtesy. If you have any ideas though, through 'em right out there because I have no clue!

Missy, you are far too kind!

There was a printed sticker on the outside of the plastic with my name and address, but it was just plain white so no identifying info. And if there ever was a card inside it's lost, so no clues there either. Very weird!

I just got a $1.50/hr. raise!
It may not seem like much to some folks, but it is a big deal to me. My boss thought I deserved more, so he told HIS boss that I was thinking of taking another job. Which I wasn't. He made up the story to get me the raise!

He's an awesome guy, and I'm lucky to be working for him.

It would be tragic to let you make such a self-sacrifice all alone so I volunteer to put myself at risk for you and @Dee*Jay. On the off chance that Bubbalah becomes offended by any errant jewels entering your home from anonymous sources and decides to emancipate herself, she is welcome to come stay with me and play with MrsB. I have the perfect spot on my forehead for her :D

@Daisys and Diamonds , Thinking of you as I‘m sitting here watching Jimmy Kimmel talking to Michelle Obama about how much she likes Bruce Springsteen. I’m sure none of what she is saying will come as a surprise to you, but it was nice hearing all the good things she had to say about him.
She definitely is a big fan of Bruce as a person.

I am constantly amazed at the total stupidity of some people. They are oblivious! Sat in the vets for an hour listening to to a girl tell her dog to stop barking and and screaming and calm down. I had a headache, it was way too hot in there and we had a very sick cat in a crate that was nervous. She (the owner) seemed to think it was so adorable how her dog was so wound up. I was at the point of offering her $20 to go walk him outside when they went in the office. I could have ripped every blue hair out of her stupid head...

Thank you for thinking of me
out here in the world we all loved the Obamas
And she did give him a ride in air force one

Mr Obama and Bruce have been doing some pod casts together
If you don't have spotify (i don't) the links are all in this thread in my Bruce Springsteen forum (im Daisey jeep)
They are really interesting
It would be really great if it widens Bruce's fan demographic even by one fan
His late great saxophone player Clarence Clemons used to scan the audience looking for black faces but only ever saw them working security

So I was driving down the freeway yesterday when I saw something that I thought should be called to the attention of the highway patrol. Although I was alone in the car, my trusty cell phone was right beside me. So I said, “Dail 9-1-1.”

I guess Siri misunderstood.

The next thing I knew, I found myself talking to someone at Diamonds by Lauren.

“Dail 9-1-1.” “Diamonds by Lauren.” I guess I can see how that happened.

I ended up picking up my phone and actually “dialing” 911 - ironically, somewhat illegally - to report the pedestrian walking on the freeway!



As an aside, just last week my sweetie and I visited Death Valley National Park. We were hiking in a somewhat remote canyon when we encountered another hiker matter-of-factly hiking in his birthday suit. We dubbed him Mr. Sunshine, because of his apparent deep appreciation for nature’s gifts, especially sunshine... but I digress.

When I called 911 yesterday the dispatcher asked me the usual questions in trying to get a description of the pedestrian on the freeway. When she got to “Clothing?” my first thought was, “yes.” After meeting Mr. Sunshine, I know better than to take that for granted!
