Why Yes, These Glasses Do Glow in the Dark

For those of you who missed the BC, you will have to beg Grandpa and Jesse to do an encore of their toasts at the next family gathering.

You will also want to admit the following into the Cousin Council archive:

The Booze Cruise

Dear Cousins,

It is not often that I, the self acclaimed VP of the CC and Co-President of the LHC would miss such an event as the Hillman Booze Cruise. Even as I type this my heart aches. Due to unforseen moving delays I am TN locked this entire weekend waiting the arrival of my belongings from New York.

HOWEVER, I did want to contribute a few quotable quotes to you for this coming Thursday. Please assume characters as you so decide amongst yourselves. Obviously Jim will be Jesse by default which then makes Rachel, Pam...or Karen. Perhaps Liz is Pam and Rachel is Karen?

I vote Nathan as Dwight and Pike as Michael Scott. You know this really adds another dimension to the Hillman holiday....
If each Hillman had to be a character from "The Office" who would be who? This is your mission CC - let's figure this out!

Dear Cousins,

Michael Scott: In an office, manager ranks higher than captain. On a boat, who knows? It's nebulous.
Dwight Schrute: Don't worry Michael, I'm taking us to shore!
Michael Scott: It's a fake wheel, dummy.
Michael Scott: I see the sales department as a furnace.
Phyllis: A furnace?
Jim Halpert: How old is this ship?
Pam Beesley: How about the anchor?
Phyllis: What does the furnace do?
Michael Scott: Let's not get hung up about the furnace, it's just, I see the sales department are down there, they are in the engine room, and they are shoveling coal into the furnace, right? I mean, who saw the movie Titanic? They were very important in the movie Titanic. Who saw it? Show of hands.
Jim Halpert: Not really sure what movie you're talking about. Are you sure you got the title right?
Michael Scott: Titanic.
Pam Beesley: I think you're thinking of "The Hunt for Red October."

Ohio friends,

You are welcome to come see our house Friday and grab a bite of lunch. Say, 11:30. It's an old house, with numerous problems [aka "character"], so now may be your only chance before it falls down.

And remember to be careful about the deer in Michigan. Deer accidents are common, even when mowing your lawn.

Is this real life...

Well as some of you may or may not know......Danara's and my work lives have switched places. She gets to work from home now and I am stuck in an office for 40 hours a week. I've been in "real life" (as mom would put it) for a little over a month now......and at this point I sit for a good portion of the day trying to device a plan of how I can escape "real life". If you have any suggestions please send them my way!

Here's a social networking site that I might actually maintain. Check it out. It's fairly quick and easy to set up.
