Did Vern manage to repossess the beer, too???

Assuming that I have time to take a vacation (which is problematic in many years), I'd probably either go for somewhere in Door County, Wisconsin or else up near the Apostle Islands.

Bonus Question:

Thing?
Person?
This one.
Event?

Without going into a lot of details, I've been disappointed by some recent developments in family member's relationship.

Extra Credit Question:

sleep!
That won't happen until about mid-August.

Just for Fun:

I can now officially add
cat-herder to my "resume"?

The all-volunteer committee that plans and puts on the convention I work on each year is made up of several dozen highly intelligent, creative and talented individuals (we have multiple PhDs, JDs, programmer-analysts, etc. in the group), but the problem is that each one of them has their own idea about how to achieve any given objective. The committee chair's job is a lot like riding herd on a bunch of intelligent and independent cats. And I've agreed to take that job on for the 2011 convention.

It's a good thing it's No Pants Day--after celebrating No Diet Day yesterday I can barely get my pants zipped, anyway!

It's funny that we're celebrating the release of "Monday Monday" on a Friday....

I only get one? Hmmmm, decisions, decisions. Grand Cayman or Italy, I can't decide--so I guess he'll have to build me a permanent residence on one of those cruise ships that goes everywhere.
