Ranting on an idiot boss

Because we are short handed and I have vacation next week I worked thru lunch today. My husband was sweet and got me lunch from McD's. I had him get me Chicken Selects and a Shamrock shake. No big deal, hubby gets me lunch fairly often. So I'm sitting there at my desk eating and working when my boss comes up to me and decides my lunch needs some sort of comment. He mentions that he doesn't recognize them as something from McD's and I tell him what they are. He comments then that they are a more rugged version of the chicken mcnugget and how they would go camping. He then babbles about how the chicken mcnuggets would be taken on a camping trip but chicken selects would go camping by themselves. Yes, that's right folks. My boss thinks that McD's chicken selects can go camping without any human intervention. The man has finally flipped his lid, its time to put some chlorine in the gene pool 57yrs to late. Still confused in Wisconsin, Heather

Baking Leperachaun eyeballs - or what to do when your hubby's away

My husband is in sunny Florida while I'm stuck in dreary Wisconsin. So, how do I keep myself occupied? Why I hunt down Leperachauns and bake their eyeballs. I have a fabulous recipe if you are interested. Actually I'm just teasing you. Everyone knows you broil Leperachaun eyeballs not bake :) But in actuality I am making polymer clay beads for St. Patty's day. I am working on some pot of gold beads, 4 leaf clover beads, and leperachaun head beads. I am hoping to sell them on ebay when they are done. I'm also working on my newest addition to my business. I am going to offer polymer clay birthday parties for kids. I will bring a bunch of clay and tools and let the kids go nuts. Hopefully it will go over well. We have lots of kids in our neighborhood that are of the appropriate age so once I finish my brochure I will be distributing it to hopefully get the word out. Wish me luck. More later, Heather
