Flashbacks, version 5.5

Because I'm a conscientious recycler with lots of (ancient) material, I'm participating in a rehashing, linking exercise Monty passed my way.

The rules are simple: post 5 links to 5 previously written posts related to key words, then tag 5 more people to do the same.

Family - my parents kick ass, Feliz Navidad & Honey, we're home

Friends - an ex-friend after this fight, To Wipe or Not to Wipe

Yourself - Speed Racer crashes, No Fault

Love - love in the drive-thru, I SAID Super Size

Anything I like - Finger Prick

Now to pass the torch (I'm a giver - that's what I do). If they know what's good for them, the following people will also participate: Pirate Kay, Slicksumbitch, fellow cat-lover Haphazard Kat, Brenda aka Junquedujour, and my sexy 6 cousin Kelly.

I'm living large* this week in the 17th largest city in the United States at a conference with 1632 other attendees. Louisville, in case the brochure tagline wasn't an obvious reference.

*not so much large as FAT. There's something about having my company pick up expenses that causes me to eat several large meals per day, including Crab Ravioli with pesto and snacks from Starbuck's. I might possibly need an intervention.

As I was walking through the hallway in the Conference Center this afternoon, I passed by a familiar face (conveniently attached to a body) that I knew from somewhere. I turned around to stare, as he did the same. My first sergant from Ft. Lewis, Washingon in 1988 (!), here from Ft. Bening, Georgia. He asked if I kept in touch with anyone else from our unit, but other than awkward, accidental yearly visits with my ex-husband, sadly, I did not.

The husband of one of my friends/co-workers is a contestant on this season's "Biggest Loser", so we all gathered (and dare I say bonded) together last night while watching the episode with with beer, pizza, and chips. Ironic, no?

Thought for the week: do not, under any circumstances, attempt to shave your legs in the bathtub, while talking on your cell phone. It will end badly.
