..........~~sigh~~...........i'm here........barely..........

It is now 5:45 pm on Saturday and I do believe I am going to live.
"What the heck are ya talkin' bout, Debbie-doo?", you might be asking yourself. (If not...just go ahead and do it...okay?...I'm in no mood for games here!)

I have spent the most of the day, fighting a really bad horrendously awful hangover bug of some sort. I'm going to blame my friends at The Friendship Force of Nagasaki because they kept putting those cans of beer in my hand at their International Party last night!! lovely British friend and some other British bloke that was also there at the party and I went to this really fun Country Music WE had fun...not sure if the other customers there appreciated our 'charming wits and sparkling personalities', but....who cares. Between the three of us, we have been in Japan for 57 years....we deserve to "get a little crazy sometime"!! (and I'm thinking that I might have actually sang "Crazy"...ala Patsy Cline with the band....hmmm...ooh...more Motrin, please!!!)

Anyway....I'm going to live, was pretty debatable earlier in the day. (I hope my friends are okay...I better call them to check!!)
So....I didn't get to the weekly Friday Feast last night will do some "leftovers" for know what 'they' say.....sometimes stuff is better the next day, anyway!!!

When you drink soda/pop/coke, do you prefer to drink it from the bottle, a can, or after pouring it into a cup?

I really like a Coke in a tall glass filled with "soft" crushed ice....throw in some rum and lime and I'm a happy camper!!!**I remember, when I was much, much dad would buy a bottle of Coke and pour a small package of salted peanuts and cashews in it....sounds kind of *yucky* was actually really good...especially on a hot, summer day!!!

What television show are you willing to stay up late to watch?

Oooohhhh.....Gray's Anatomy or House...definitely Dr. House!!

Name one person, place, or thing you think of as brilliant.
The person who thought up the idea for those little sticky note pads!! I have those things all over the place...without them, my life would be just a mess!!! (You knew I was a blond, right?? Sometimes I am living the "blond joke" life and it really isn't funny!!!)

Main Course
Would you be willing to work 4 10-hour days instead of 5 8-hour days in order to save
Hmmm....hard to answer as I don't work a true "9-5" kind of job....but...IF I did...then...sure...I'm always good for a 3-day weekend!!!

If you were a superhero, what would you call yourself?

(IF?? Who's saying that I'm not already?!?!)
Well...since Wonder Woman is already about....the Blond Bombshell!!!
Actually....that sounds like it could be my "Bad-Ass Roller Derby Queen" name!!!

One more thing before I go through the 91 posts that have piled up in my GoogleReader and do the 'read /comment' dance on some of the best writers' blogs that I have found....I wanted to tell you about a contest that my friend Gina is having.....she won't do the drawing for a very beautiful rug (that really....will look fab-u-lous in my tatami room!!!) until she has 100 people entered.
So click HERE....go to her blog and join...please....the sooner you do that, the sooner she will pull my name out of her "random number generator"!!!! (I'll make sure that one suitcase will have room for it when the boys and I return to Japan!!!)

The upside?

It's only 7AM here ... you'd just be starting the nursing process to cure that darn "bug".

Sounds like a fun night though!

Karen MEG said...

Tsk, tsk, tsk ... you party animal!

Hope you feel better soon.

And I'll have that salad with you any day!

And we've got post-its all over the place. I even use them to "photoshop" LOL!

I just saw this article about "monster parents" in Japan and was wondering about your take on it. I hope this link goes through...,2933,364265,00.html

I feel your pain having recently had the bottle flu myself! Hydrate and sleep.

I hope you are feeling better now! It sounds like a fabulous Friday night but I'd hate losing a Saturday. Take care!

Bug? Debbie dear, are you sure it's not the germ called 'hangover'??? ;)

I'm kind of stuck on "The Friendship Force." It sounds totally made up, like something from a Christopher Guest movie.

Anyway. I love pop the best in a glass with crushed ice too! And sticky notes are to die for indeed. Kindred spirits...

Be well!

I'm glad you had fun at the time. That day after bug is a bitch. The one that always makes you say, "never again", but then we do it.

Isn't the peanuts and coke thing a southern thing?
There is a Tim McGraw song called "I Miss Back When" and he references that very thing!
