Wednesday HodgePodge

From this Side of the Pond

Today's questions from Joyce.

1. When's the last time you had a heart to heart talk with someone? A change of heart? Experienced figurative 'heart failure?'

Heart failure?  That's an easy one.  I had some errands to run after work yesterday, so I didn't get home until about 9 PM.  As I drove up my street I could see a huge truck parked in front of my house.  A little investigation revealed that the truck belongs to our gas company.  There were two large holes in my lawn. The truck was still there at 4:30 in the morning. When I left for work at 8:30, the gas company truck was gone, but there were two trucks from the electric company on the street.  A third truck arrived while I was pulling out of my driveway.  I drove down to the end of the street, where I saw two gas company trucks headed towards my house.  Yikes! 

I don't know what's going on, but I hope they fix it soon.

here's what the lawn looked like this morning:

 2. Champagne, chocolates, flowers...what's your Valentine pleasure? Any special plans for the day?

All three, please.  Drew and I are going out tonight.  Kind of low-key this year, we're having dinner at our favorite Greek restaurant.  They're running a special, a three course dinner that includes a glass of wine. 

 3. Are you a hopeless romantic or do you fall more in the category of practical and pragmatic? What's a gesture you find romantic?

I pretend to be practical and pragmatic.

 4. Do you ask a lot of questions in life or are you pretty content with what you already know?

Never stop asking questions, you will stagnate and die.

5. Your favorite power ballad?

 6. Insert your own random thought here.

We celebrated Mardi Gras in the office yesterday.  King cake, pastries, chocolate coins, beads.  It was a lot of fun.  Maybe someday I'll actually be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, I have always wanted to see that city.

I hope you do get to New Orleans. Maybe you should make a plan for next year ;)
