All I Want For Christmas
Inspiration struck while listening to the song "Can't Stop The Rock." I think - no, I know - that Derek & Heather have gotten me a giant cardboard figure of The Rock! Heather told me that they were going to get me another big wall hanging of John Elway but they found something better. And what could be better that The Rock???
I told Jess about it and he couldn't hide the smile. I told Heather on the phone that I knew and I could tell from her voice that I was right. She's just not a good liar.
I'm so excited! I expect to see The Rock in my basement on Christmas!! Merry Christmas to everyone!!

But he's doing well. Thank God.
Here's a fun story for you, though: Last week Derek & Squatchy were over and we got to talking about weird names that people have for their children. I decided that the rule would be you had to name your kid after an herb or spice. The concensus at our house was Corriander Sage, Corri for short. What would you name your kid if those were the rules?
Aaaannnd....my kids & husband might disagree with this but:
You Are Not Scary
Everyone loves you. Isn't that sweet?
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Missing The Rock
Derek's wife Heather (Squatchy) came with me. We always catch the Park-n-Ride in Parker so that we don't have to deal with game traffic in Denver. We usually get there in plenty of time to hit the restrooms, get a snack and get settled before the game starts. Not this time.
There was an apparent hit & run accident on I-25 which brought us to a complete standstill. We could see the stadium, we could see the parachutes that flew in, we could see the fireworks...but not the game. It started while we were still sitting on the bus.
Heather took the time to call Derek on her cell phone. This is what I heard:
H: Hi, whatcha doin'? I wish I was watching the game. We're still stuck on the bus on the interstate. Really, The Rock?
I couldn't help myself. I yelled, "The Rock? The Rock is there?? I'm missing The Rock? I love The Rock!!!" Everyone on the bus was staring at me. It turns out that yes, wrestling superstar The Rock, whom I adore and think is very cute, was at the Bronco game for the opening segment, in a Bronco jersey, saying "Are you ready for some football."
I never get to see famous people. And I would have only been more disappointed if I had missed John Elway.

A Tribe Called Tortoise?
I have a tribe. It doesn't have a name. We need a name. I suggested The
Tortoises since our tribe motto is "Slow & Steady Wins The Race." I got laughed
My boss says "You want to be a TURTLE?"
I manage a Big Lots store here in Colorado Springs and our boss has decided
that we all need to play Survivor. Like the TV show. It's based on sales
percent increase blah blah blah BUT! Now I need to come up for a name for my
tribe. I can't think of any and I'm hoping you guys can help me! Something
clever, something funny.
Even though I've never watched Survivor, the one thing I knew was to form an
alliance and do it early! Six of us have banded together and last week we got
to kick off two (2!!) managers....they were banished to Loser Island. On
Loser Island, the Big Loser has to do something really embarrassing but we don't
know what yet. We kicked off a guy from Denver & a guy from Washington and
boy were they ticked!! I just laughed.
Our district manager tried to figure out who my alliance was with but found
it difficult since EVERYONE voted those two off!
I'm really really concerned about forming an alliance within the alliance.
The people that are in my alliance are actually my biggest threats. So...drama
is in the future, I'll keep you all posted and don't forget to help me think
of a name!

Quee-gee Ouija Spook-Out
I've never seen any ghosts or anything. But I am intrigued by the prospect. I
believe it exists because I have seen sheer terror on Derek's face when he's
experienced "a happening."
When I was in college someone gave us a Ouija Board for Christmas. An old
friend of mine was visiting from Denver that holiday season and we decided to
try it out. After we'd messed around a while with it, we decided to ask it if
there were any spirits in the room. The Ouija planchette pointed to "YES." Of
course we had to know who it was so we asked, "Who's in the room with us?"
Now my friend & I lived 300 miles apart, didn't know the same people, hadn't
gone to school together or had any contact with each other for several years.
I know for a fact that I was not making the Ouija move & she swore that she
wasn't either. However, when the Ouija answered us that "BOBBY WARREN" was in
the room, I really got spooked.
Bobby was a classmate of mine that died suddenly when we were seniors and my
friend knew nothing about him or his death. I know Ouija Boards aren't real
but why did Bobby's name come up and not one of our grandparents or someone
that we both knew who had died?
Do you believe in the mystical Ouija?
