Something Else

I realize I've been kind of negative lately, what with talk of termites, wedding woes, and gripes about America. I'm not going to do that today...

I just thought I'd let you know.

Shit That Rocks


1. Two of our fellow bloggers (and personal friends of mine), Newt and OneDaisy, are trying to raise money for MS. They're going to put those cute feet of theirs to work and they need some sponsors! No donation is too small. Have a heart, click over to
Feets Of Fancy. A special spork-themed award to anyone who participates.

2. My company's key account manager and I had geared up all morning for yet another long, boring webinar. But just as the conference was starting, and I had wondered aloud whether we even needed to be there, the webinar went down. "Maybe we should wait?" I asked. But the KAM was already shutting things off. "Looks like no webinar today!" He replied cheerfully. Before I'd even had a chance to move from my chair, he was out the door. "Where are you going?" I asked him. "Fishing!" And he was serious! Thank God for Florida living.

3. This place:

Obviously, since I don't own a helicopter, I did not take this picture. But it's beautiful, isn't it? Somewhere down there is Hoop's and my ceremony location. I should have pictures of it specifically in the next two weeks. Yay!

4.
"The Story Of Stuff", an awesome website that Mike sent me to. The video is 20 minutes long, but well worth it. My Mom actually thanked me for sending it to her and plans on incorporating it into an article she's writing for her business website. You should check it out. It may just change your life.

Tell me some other shit that rocks.

1) While I can't walk 200 miles, I can certainly contribute. (And not just because I'll do just about anything for a spork award!)
2) Brings new meaning to "gone fishing!"
3) BEAUTIFUL!!
4) Am in the midst of watching it now, but paused to say thanks! Now back to the video...

I'll watch the video from home tonight - it looks interesting.

I LOVE your wedding venue! It's even better than the other place, and I thought that place was cool till the crapped on you. What a gorgeous setting.

That picture of your village (or like the little Asian man in "When Harry Met Sally" says...willage) is incredibly charming.

Oh, that is a kick-ass location for a wedding ceremony! WOOT!

Other shit that rocks: my kids are both sleeping. Finally.

That's a picture? Hmmm...

I never get over how flat and wet Florida is...

Thanks for promoting the story of stuff Tink, it's the only environmental movement that has ever EVER seen the big picture and gotten it right.

You rock man.

Your wedding is going to be in a beautiful location!

Gorgeous location!

Here's something that rocks...

I was scheduled to be severely understaffed today, and was freaking out about it. My husband, who has been doing some freelance work for my employer, offered to sub in for one of my missing staff members. At first I didn't take him seriously, but he insisted. So he showed up today, worked hard, and basically saved my butt. Is that not awesome? I still worked a 10.5 hr day, but I felt happy the whole time.

Great idea for a post. I think it's easy to get into complaining instead of celebrating.

Your wedding location looks gorgeous! As for The Story of Stuff, I'm off to check it out now. Thanks for the link.
