jeff bdy again

Ack...Drowning in work. Nevertheless, Jeff and I are both swearing off all work from 4:30 pm on so we can celebrate his birthday today. Jeff has been putting in a LOT of hours for Inkspot lately, the sweetie. We both need a bit of a holiday. Anyway, if any of you have a spare minute, could you please send him a surprise birthday message? His real birthday's not until Friday, but he won't be around that day. Thanks!!!

Allison is also drowning in work this week, doing report cards. I volunteered to help her write them, but she turned me down (can't imagine why). Anyway, I'm SURE she'd appreciate helpful suggestions on useful "report card phrases"...please post them in the blatherchat (where, incidentally, I've noticed a pineapple-on-one's-pizza war beginning, woohoo! I'm definitely a Pro-Pineapple person, as is Jodi, Scott & Amanda Snyder, & Randy Hoffman. Anne Walker, Lissa Allcock, Rand & Allison seem to be in the Anti-Pineapple camp --- they have no idea what they're missing!)

Here's a song for you all (I spent hours on it, as you can tell):


    Pizza needs pineapple

    It adds sweet crunch

    To you anti-P types...

    You're out to lunch!

    THE END (evil laughter fading into the distance)

Jeff put the Ariel doll on his computer in his office at work. He's already received a lot of interesting comments.
