Well as it often goes I searched the forum, I was devastated to discover that a thread on this theme didn't exist! - So here goes!
I'm celebrating catching up with a friend I haven't seen in years! Yay!
If YOU have something to celebrate let the community know about it!
My boss has agreed in principle to putting air conditioning in the office at work. It may take a while, but hopefully it will happen before the weather here gets worse.
Getting my stolen bike back. I've had it it tuned up with new tires installed too.
Now I float like the wind!
@3 You must have very thoughtful criminals in the US. In the UK they would never put new tyres on (!?)... Seriously - Glad you got it back.
Celebrating my eldest daughter's new life starting in the far east. We'll miss her.
Great to hear you got your bike back Cris!
@4: LOL about the tyres!
I'm celebrating both the approval of a new image (I hope people find it useful!), and the purchase of a Depeche Mode album (Sounds so good!) for my "collection"!
wow so optimistic I like it!
today all boys in Poland (I don't know if any other countries too) have got good reason to celebrate - this is their day! We are preparing small gifts for our boys
( even they actually do not attend kindergarten from more then 40 years...) - this is not only for a children :-)
So best wishes to you all here :-)
We have Father's day, but not a day for boys. I hope you balance it out with a day for girls, too! :)
@7 Of course Dez, we do! 8.03 is for girls! We have got also Father's Day, Mother's Day, Grandmother and Grandfather's Day, Teacher's Day - any reason is good to celebrate :-)
Norwegians probably think in the same way, because today we have got here in Norway "farikal day"
this is traditional dish , prepared from lamb meat and cabbage - very easy to do - you need just meat, some pepper, salt, cabbage and water - should be served with boiled potatoes - I have try to do it few days ago and it's nice ;-)))
that is the way to celebrate season for lamb meat here
for those who are interested - link with instruction, please use translator or just watch what this buddy is doing and do the same :-)
Lamb stew with cabbage - sounds delicious. Lamb is my favourite meat. I prefer it roasted with roast potatoes, roast pumpkin, greens of some sort, and gravy. Better than a date with Tom Cruise.
@10. I quite agree. A date is only one mouthful, or two at most. Lol!
I'm celebrating my wife recovering so well from a very bad illness.
@9 So you dropped Matt Damon for Tom Cruise? Or maybe lamb stew with cabbage is not better than a date with Matt Damon. Suppose Matt took you to dinner where they serve roasted lamb with potatoes??
I'm celebrating Pat Burrell's homer last night that brings the SF Giants one step closer to being the NL West Champs in this final week of MLB's regular season.
@10 Glad to hear she is doing well.
Kevin, that's excellent!
Cris, there was a series of ads in this country about people giving up a date with Tom Cruise for a lamb dinner. Peter will understand.
Matt Damon is my poster boy, still. *sigh*
@9 A slug sandwich is better than a date with Tom Cruise...
@10 Kevin, that's one of the best reasons to celebrate I can think of. Hope the recovery is a swift one.
Hey hey! it's raining (AGAIN!) in Armidale, NSW Australia!
While the farmers may celebrate I still gotta' walk in the stuff!
Rain + Wind = Frozen Hair!
@14 A slug sandwich is the best you can come up with Wolfie? - More like a slug burrito! (en masse, of course!) *evil laff*
For you Peter, we have the banana slug croissant.
You don't even have to deal with Tom Cruise to get yours.
@12, 13, 14 Thanks for your good wishes. In celebration of my wife being well enough to travel once again, we're off to Madeira in a few day's time for a week's rest and sunshine. Though I am taking my camera... :-)
@16 where's my banana slug soufflé? Yum, yum!!!
Note: any damages claims from individuals attempting to prepare and consume the "banana slug soufflé" will be ignored. - This is a general health warning! *evil laff*
Secondly, Cris where do you come up with these ideas?
The banana slug is the official mascot for University of California, Santa Cruz.
It's indigenous to the Pacific Coastal region of California.
@17 Looking forward to seeing the piccies. Have a lovely time both of you. :D
@19 I don't know what I should feel. Have they inherited this mascot due to "sluggish" performance??? *evil laugh*
Mind you, I can't mock such a "delicacy" as the Banana slug! (Now with 8 essential vitamins and minerals!)
@21 SLUGZILLA! — Walk away in fear of the giant mutant slug before it "assimilates" Manhatten! *terrified screams* the buildings cannot escape! They have no LEGS!!!
This is getting out of control...
I will take control, then. I am celebrating a successful and delicious apple pie and vegan custard. To die for, and I made them. I've had three helpings, and I care not!
Kevin, I hope you both have a good break. Nothing like a holiday to make you feel better - even if it's only to appreciate home! LOL
Take care, Dezzie. Those banana slugs look like they could easily pass themselves off as custard slugs. Then, duhn duhn duhnnnn, no more vegan custard...
Looks around shiftily...
Splutch. Splutch. Splutch.
Hmmmmmm. What's this? The custard seems to be stirring itself...
Way to spoil a girl's day, madam!
