Pssssst . . . it’s El Guapo’s birthday!
He’s keeping pretty quiet about it, just as he’s keeping pretty quiet about posting lately. He wants to spend more time with TMWGITU & who wouldn’t! But I can’t let this day go by without acknowledging what a good friend he has been to me. So Happy Birthday to the true gentleman of WordPress & may you have many, many, many more!

If you like to get free books head on over to: http://www.feelingbeachie.com/holiday-book-giveaway-thirteen-different-authors/ where you can find a fabulous book giveaway from fellow blogging writers! I hope I win!
I have an update on my NaNoWriMo adventure too – I finished my November writing with a little over 30,000 words. Not as many words as I had hoped, but a lot more than I had ever written at one time before. This was a big accomplishment for me, especially with Kelvin hanging around 24 hours a day, a case of pneumonia, followed by a reaction to a new antibiotic and then a worse reaction to a new puffer to counteract the symptoms from the antibiotics. It’s a case of no luck except bad luck for me lately.
So anyway, I’m back & hoping to get caught up on all my reading in the next few days!

How great my 2 year blogiversary should coincide with the American Thanksgiving, so no one will see this post until tomorrow anyway because they’ll be stuffing their faces with turkey & pumpkin pie (yum!)
I would like to thank all my blogging buddies for making these last 2 years such an enjoyable part of my life. I had moved to a new province, leaving family and friends behind & had no new friends except for a couple of people I worked with (who disappeared as quickly as my job). I was starving for friendship, to be able to talk to someone other than Kelvin & try my hand again at writing. What I found were the best people in the world, so supportive & friendly, who welcomed me into their worlds. So this post is for you (& you know who you are, even if you’re one of the ones I follow who doesn’t follow me back) Thank you again!The StudTwo priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates.St. Peter said, “I’d like to get you guys in now, but our computer’s down. You will have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can’t go back as priests. What’ll it be?”
The first priest says, “I’ve always wanted to be an an eagle, soaring above the Rocky Mountains.”
“So be it,” says St. Peter and off flies the first priest.
The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, “Will any of this week ‘count’ St. Peter?”
“No I told you the computer’s down, there’s no way we can keep track of what you are doing.”
“In that case” says the second priest, “I’ve always wanted to be a stud.”
“So be it” says St. Peter and the second priest disappears.
A week goes by, the computer is fixed and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests.
“Will you have any trouble locating them? he asks.
“The first one should be easy,” says St. Peter, ”He’s somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult.”
“Why?” asks the Lord
“He’s on a snow tire, somewhere in Saskatchewan “

Hints on how to liven up your idle hours …
2. On all your cheque stubs, write ‘ For Marijuana’

4. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.
5. Sing along at the opera.
6. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream ‘I Won! I Won!’
7. When leaving the Zoo, start running towards the car park, yelling ‘Run For Your Lives! They’re Loose!’
8. Tell your children over dinner, ‘Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.’
And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity:
9. PICK UP A BOX OF CONDOMS AT THE PHARMACY, GO TO THE COUNTER AND ASK WHERE THE FITTING ROOM IS.

Tomorrow will be my one year Anniversary posting Tickle Me Tuesday posts! These posts originally started out as Monday Mirth but then Hotspur started Romantic Mondays & I voluntarily moved to Tuesdays. Of course because of NaNoWriMo, I’m late posting this. Progress update: Not too good. Migraine on Sunday – no writing done; doctors appointment on Monday – no writing done. I’m hopeful to keep going if I can keep Kelvin from bothering me too much. In the meantime – enjoy!
