.....he knows when you're awake Is Santa really a peeping Tom? What about invasion of privacy??? Can we sue for libel if he puts us on the naughty list???
Last workday until Christmas for me Our division is having its annual party with bad food and boring entertainment. All the branches sit at their own tables and glare at the others. We usually ditch the party right after the door prizes are awarded and head to other division parties who have a lot more fun.
Hope everyone has a great day and look busy...Santa is watching!!!!
Dear Santa: Here is what I want:
Explorer of the Seas October 2013
Caribbean Princess July 2006, May 2010 & November 2012
Monarch of the Seas November 2008
Crown Princess November 2007
Celebrity Zenith November 2005
Enchantment of the Seas August 2004
Good morning from Orlando. Doug, we had our holiday luncheon yesterday and it was nice...no door prizes though but at least it wasn't the covered dish against our will affair of my old office.
Just a few stocking stuffers left to pick up.
I'm sitting here at my computer at work on a chair that is about a foot too short for the table. I feel like I'm a kid at the adult table.
I've got all my shop equipment all packed up and ready to go. When the tractor-trailer gets here, then I start throwing away all the leftover junk.
I tried to some shopping last night, but I'm at a loss to what I should buy. Every time I buy something "different", it ends up in a rummage sale a couple years down the road. DW is not much for jewelry, so it really is tough sometimes. But I'll figure it out. I've got like three days to shop! An eternity!
lovely picture -
Doug: your comments remind of an email that was circulated awhile back about Santa, will try to find it - I think it may have been written by CruiseCynic.
Good morning all and hope everyone is prepared and ready for the holidays; I'm not, but oh well....

Morning All, from Montreal, where the thermometer says 1C. Not very encouraging is it?
Doug, that photo is what I want from Santa too! That is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and I want to go back again!
Too bad your Christmas party is so dull. Ours was a scream. We had this very serious, never-crack-a-smile, almost to the point of sullen, waiter for our private room party in an Italian restaurant. His lack of Christmas cheer bothered all of us party girls, and by the end of the evening, we had him dancing with us and smiling for photos! It was a hoot!
Today I have a blessed day off, just for one Dr. appointment in the middle of the day. The rest of the day I will put to good use and (hopefully) finish my Christmas shopping!
I am going to make the trek to the supermarket today, to buy all I need for Christmas dinner. I want to avoid the crowds. Since we are leaving 2 days after the holiday, I won't overbuy, and will send home doggie bags.
My gift from my 2 co-workers was a lovely cyclemen plant. One woman was there, the other will be in today, so I left one bag on the desk for her, and put the other pretty bag, on this womans desk...where it stayed all day, unopened..I could never do that to someone. Wouldn't you think she would open it up in my presence? She is an odd duck, anyway, but.............different strokes I guess
Make it a good one.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Good morning from beautiful downtown Lakeland, FLorida, where it'll be near 80 degrees today. The Cruise of the Century is really sneaking up on us, as we've been so busy lately. Can't wait to meet everyone!
Good Morning Everyone!
Doug,I would like the same for the Holiday season.
The beach,sun,a cold drink,and the attachment in the chair that one usually finds at the beach.
I had the best Rum Cakes yesterday! RayB's granddaughter bakes them!
Y'All have a very wonderful day!!!
The temps have finally dropped a little bit here, so it feels a little bit more like Christmas. I didn't get much done yesterday... I was just dragging too slow. I did make it to the mall for the final gift cards I needed to purchase. Hopefully, today will be more productive. I'm going to meet a friend for lunch. I also think I'll make a pot of soup to take to my DS and DIL. They are both home today, under the weather.
I rested better last night. No answers to the problems with my MIL, but I have been able to share my concerns with some very nice people, and that helps a lot. (Thanks, Angela)
All of you getting ready for the Cruise of the Century, I feel your excitement and I'm looking forward to the day when I can sail you each of you!

Good Morning cruisemates! Relatively calm in Calgary with temps in the 40s F . Nothing much to do last night, and nothing to stare at the one "the tube", so falling asleep at 11 resulted in an early wake up this morning.
Spent most of yesterday making phone calls to finalize different things with suppliers from my business... and of course, each call takes extra time, because first you have to leave a message.
Then you get a number of .. "you'll have to call "so and so" , that's really not my dept.
Ah well... gives me something to continue on with on today
Good morning from a still-cold Southern California.
Doug, I've never been to the Princess Keys. Would love to see it.
Today I have a chauffuer. My DH will drive me to Pasadena so I can get some things for the cruise. He wants to go to his "guy" places which are away from the holiday bustle with its parking problems. Then he's taking me to lunch at Il Fornaio in Old Town, a pre-birthday lunch, so to speak.
Enjoy your day. CM's. Soon we'll be aboard the Century!
Good afternoon from sunny windy Florida. At least it was warm enough to go down to the inlet, and sit in the park with a good book for a while this morning. I took a nice walk, and watched some sting rays swimming under the footbridge. Couldn't help thinking about the dangers of those guys. I used to just see the beauty in the way they swim like angels. OH Well, another fairy tale bites the dust.
Have a good weekend everyone. One week from today we'll be heading to Miami and that fantastic cruise.
