    USA, USA, USA!!! Thursday #656!

    I am going to open the bar for TWO weeks, in honor of the Olympic/Pet games.

    I am jazzed and ready to go. I am a huge fan of the games since my dad introduced me to them when I was very small.

    I think some hot dogs, hamburgers and Apple Pie is appropriate?

    Done and Done!!!

    Oh! Canada!

    Everyone's welcome.

    The opening ceremonies were pretty cool. I liked the projection/floor.

    Geez, what national drinks would be appropriate?

    Perhaps we need a batch of these: Caipirinha (k-eye-per-reen-yah) is the name of the drink: Cachaca (kashasah) is the name of the alcoholic spirit/liquor used in the drink. Cachaca is a Brazilian distilled liquor that starts from unaldulterated sugarcane juice (unlike rum, which is made from what is left over after the main sugar removal process).

    Tried it when I was in Brazil in 2008. Very potent.

    Gosh, are there any medals yet in the kitty Olympics? And what Brazilian treats have people had, or want to try? The Olympics are always so amazing - these people started out just like the rest of us!

    It's pouring rain tonight in my part of Chicagoland, and I'm taking a break from watching swimming. Go, world!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Details?? Ok. I lost my job last year when my company was sold. Due to the downturn in oil and gas it's taken me a year and over 300 resumes to finally land a job. I start August 29.

    I'll gladly take a lashing with Angel's tail. And maybe get a snuggle too!!!

    congratulations.

    I honestly thought 'what is taking so long?, There have been times that I have thought about you and your search.

    I know how you feel and glad all your efforts have been rewarded.

    What do you like in your lunch, I'll have the ORC pack one for you on your first day.

    LOL,
    did you plan it so that you could start work AFTER the Olympics?

    I wondered what was taking so long also. I interviewed for one where they had 200 resumes and I made the top 20, but went no further. Lots of people out of work here.

    Think first day lunch will have quinoa and fresh veggies.

    Planned the start date for after my move. Had to give up my rental as I had no job. Moving in with a friend for now.

    Thank goodness you didn't mention 'tofu', the Orc is a carnivore!

    Congratulations, can we say that this is your Gold Medal Moment?


    Another round for the house!!
