Back on Track

After I attended the funeral for a sweet friend yesterday morning, I came home and took a six-hour power nap.

Good thing I decided to get up today. I had two phone calls before 8:30 AM.

One was someone telling me she "can't help at church tomorrow," because she got a chance to go sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Who can blame her? Well, me, I can blame her, but really, I'm sure everyone else sees her side. Fine friends you all turned out to be. Harrumph.

I've told several other people that I had enough folks to help me with the task of cleaning the church kitchen top to bottom, so they don't need to bother themselves. Now, I have to think about whether or not to call one of them to see if they can still offer their services. Sometimes I think I'm better off doing these things by myself.

The other call was AT&T. My bill is automatically paid by being billed to my VISA. Something happened in the "auto" part starting in July. Well, not something. My card was "compromised". As in: some bank somewhere in the world had their system hacked into and my card number was one of thousands which was stolen. So new card, new number equals no payment to AT&T. I thought that the credit union was going to handle transferring any automatic payments to the new card number. Silly me. That's what guy told me when I went into the credit union. He had nice eyes though. That's all that counts. Look good, say anything. You'll get away with it.

Good news is that dddragon and I will be working together today at the church, painting the mural that she designed. That will be pure fun. For me. Probably just work for her.

You won't believe this, since I'm a Unitarian, but I have not had coffee yet. Unitarians worship the coffee god. I'm off to pay homage.

Painting with one's daughter at church sounds like a perfect way to spend the day.

Have fun, and I am envious that you can take a 6 hour power nap!

Enjoy a day of rejuvination today.

Praise Java. Sorry to hear about your friend.

Why can't phone calls sometimes be about somebody who wants to GIVE you money, instead of the other way around? Huh? How about that?

(Dueling Banjos IS an excellent tune. I didn't remember it in time. Frankie Laine was o.k., but probably not in my top 10.)

dddragon seems to be very talented like your whole family. We'll be interested in seeing the mural in a pic if possible.

Goa'uld said...

The mural is coming out very well :D! Though, I haven't seen it since you've worked more on it...can't wait 'til the pictures :).

I think everybody that has to wake up before 8 worships the coffee-god, and his followers are constantly growing in numbers. It is a sweet addiction!

Six hour power nap - you must be pretty powerful by now! And yes, I pay hommage to the coffee god at Starbucks every day. Bow down to the coffee god.

AP3 said...

Sorry about your friend's death. She sounds like she was interesting.

Good luck getting the help you need! Oh, and good luck getting help at the church too! Hahaha

AP3, you little smart @$$! LOL

Yes, Lee Ann was a sweetie. But she lived to a nice old age.

Anyone interested in the mural can see a couple of pix at dddragon's Randomness site.

Sorry about your friend. I hope we'll get to see a picture of the finished product.

Yea, coffee is ok. Not great, just ok.

You need to try the Green Tea Frapachino at Starbucks! Those things are great. 400 calorie great. Ummmmmmm!!!

The airport has a dozen or so Starbucks stands scattered about. They are inside checkpoints, outside of checkpoints, upstairs at arrivals, downstairs at depatures. And there are at least twice as many cuban coffee places at the airport. Cuban coffee is like expresso, only more concentrated. You consume it as shots. It is usually LOADED with sugar.

Something there will end up killing me. But I have cool insurance if I keel over on the job. Someone will get a bunch of money. I will get a pimpin casket, with neon lights and flames painted on it.

As a mother, I am going to ask you to please put in a word with Ap3. Even with glasses, it is becoming difficult to make out those letters on the post. What does that say? Read this in conjunction with my post about remembering the Stones from 1965..

Unitarians! Such filth!

Jamie Dawn said...

Maybe the Little Bar of Soap will come over and help you clean the kitchen at the church. That way she can witness to the Unitarians and leave Jesus is Lord pamphlets in the bathroom stalls.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

So many offers of help, so few people who are actually in the area to help. *sigh*

Barbara: I'm afraid I have no clue what we're talking about here. Do you mean those crazy verification words?

GodlessMom said...

Jamie Dawn! LOL!

The mural is really looking wonderful. I can't wait to see the finished product.

And speaking of the Coffee God, you just reminded me I have yet to worship this morning. Shame on me.

natasha said...

Luce, I haven't had much to say on your blog lately, and you've been commenting all over mine! Sorry! I'm still here and reading, but usually when I get here, my witty little remark has already been said! ;)

still life said...

whoever heard of someone blogging in the early morning without the aid of coffee and then referring to themselves as a unitarian?

hahahaha you're so funny

Meegan said...

Mmmm...coffee. If worshipping coffee is a religion, then I'm an extremist.

Doug said...

That's funny, Meegan.
