Hi World,

I know, it has been like two days and I have not checked in.  I tried to catch up today.  God, you all are prolific.  There were a lot of blogs to catch up on! 

Congratulations to SS for passing the most difficult section of the CPA exam.  Congratulations to Becca for “Not Drinking Jello Shots”.  Sure wish I had been there for that. 

Joann and Dinners, glad to have you back in rare form.  Red and CB, thanks for being on top of things as alway….

So anyway, I’ve missed everyone, now let’s talk about Sandra Bullock but in a nice way…

Here is a nice person.  Never has a bad thing to say about anybody.  Always funny, always upbeat, totally a girl next door type that you can imagine giggling with over wine and tapas, and the media is all over her.  Because her husband did a bad thing.

It’s between them, media.  Leave them alone, give the girl some room, let them work it out.  There are children involved.  I don’t want to know the dirt, don’t want to see the other woman, don’t want to see his tattoos (even if they are quite alluring), don’t want to know how she is coping. 

We think we envy celebritites.  Really?  Think about something so private and heartbreaking happening to you and then think about parasites following you around night and day with the sole mission of  catching your every reaction and reporting it to the public.  I don’t care how much people are paid, it is really not right. 

And the ironic twist is, you almost can’t help but watch.  I’ve managed not to so far.  I’ll continue my struggle because, I like you Sandra Bullock, and you need your space. 

Ahhh.  Got that out of my system.  So, World, you have not heard from me because, as you may have heard, Rhode Island is in deep water.  Not metaphorically, for once, but for real.  On Tuesday my little state experienced the worst flooding recorded in 100 years.  I work for a very nice hotel located on the banks of one of the rivers.  This is the view from our restaurant window on Tuesday afternoon:

That area used to be a deck and lawn. 
Here is the view from our roof a few hours earlier:
Usually there is a bank there leading down to the water. 
I usually do not reference my job at all because I think it is generally not a good career move, but if I’m not able to show up again for a few days, I wanted you to understand why.  I would really, really like to make things funny, in the style of slurple Lexus, but this is the second flooding we’ve gone through in two weeks in our state and many businesses and home owners have been affected.  Because this is not normal for Rhode Island, many homeowners and small businesses do not have the insurance needed to cover the expenses related to flooding.  I can normally turn anything light.  In fact, I think my psyche depends on it, but this is one of those situations where you say to yourself, “don’t be a callous Ass, Chicken”.

So I’ll be back.  Please don’t unfollow me.  I’m just getting to know you, my little Chickadees.  Oh, excuse me, can I call you that? 

Take care,

Chicken out

    My heart goes out to all the flood victims in New England–but especially my peeps in my old stomping grounds of RI.

    As per your typically famous problem solving manner; I see you've already jumped in to collect food and clothing for the victims.

    You are a class act Chicken!

    Your Chickadee,

    Thanks CB. Coming on the heels of a hate text from an unsatisfied guest claiming, “you suck”, that means a lot. Some people need to blog more. Learn to express themselves in a different way, you know what I'm saying?

    God Bless Chicken. Prayers and blessings from my house to yours and to all the folks of the great state of Rhode Island.

    Oh my. You mentioned the flooding, but wow! Stay safe.


  5. April 2, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    Ditto. Stay safe. We had flooding here in Iowa a few years ago and it can be devastating.


  6. April 2, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Hang in there and welcome back!


  7. April 2, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Thanks everyone. We have sunny skies, so one blessing, check!


  8. April 2, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    My heart just breaks for Sandra and I totally agree with you.

    The flooding is devastating. Stay safe and I hope it stops soon.

    Thanks GND, we will, and hey, Hi there, Miss Morgan.

    Morning Chicken,

    I havent been around a lot lately . (I'm actually trying to get some quilting done ) so my comments and participation have been inconsistent (and maybe kinda crazy- but that's a whole 'nother story)

    Hope everything is well for you and yours and everybody else. Thinking of you and yours and everybody else too. Stay dry. I know chickens dont really like water that much.

    Totally agree about Sandra too.


  11. April 2, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Mrs. P. So true. Chickens do not like water but somehow God has not gotten the message. What's up with that? Maybe a letter is in order:-) Hope the quilting is going well and I'll be over to visit!

    Consider me proud to be a Chickadee.
    Good pluck with all that water (is that bad to say to a Chicken?)…
    And I agree about Sandra Bullock. She seems like a nice woman in a hard situation and if it was possible to form a human barricade around her to keep all the bad stuff out, I'd be part of it.


  13. April 3, 2010 at 4:07 am

    Aw LP. That's so nice about the human barricade. I wish she knew she has all this support amongst the masses. Thanks also for the good wishes against water:-)


  14. April 3, 2010 at 4:31 am


    THANK YOU!!!! I wrote to her, commenting on her site. I hope it helps. Do you know her? I'm worried now.


  15. April 6, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Aptly put. Form, in my case, is indeed rare…;-)


  16. April 10, 2010 at 12:27 am

    Thanks Joann!
    Dinners: You have great form:-)
