Paul Anthony Stewart & Sheri

Oh my!

It was all kind of ironic (and a bit tragic), but my boss thought it would be a good idea to get one of my male co-workers a goldfish for Christmas as a secret santa gift this year. It was incredibly sweet of her and she thought it might help to foster a sense of responsibility in him since he's 25 and claims to have no intention of EVER settling down or having a family... Well, this morning we came in to work... and his poor goldfish was dead! :( My poor co-worker felt horrible!! We kept an eye out for my boss while he made his way to the men's room for a private funeral service (i.e. flushing it down the toilet) and the entire day we all hoped and prayed she didn't ask, "So how's the fish doing?" So much for nuturing my co-worker's sense of responsibility, he couldn't even keep his poor goldfish alive for one day! :(

In happier, "non goldfish killing" news, we just came home from an evening at the in-laws visiting with Mark's cousins who are visiting from Colorado for the holidays. They brought their two adorable sons with them and it was so nice to see them since we only get to see them all about once a year. :) I also had fun speaking with Mark's cousin, Tricia. Mark's family and I usually don't have ANY similar interests, but Tricia and I have always seemed to get along really well. We both share an interest of theatre and scrapbooking and we can talk endlessly about both. :)

And finally, I was interviewed by kathyselden:

1. Leave a comment saying you want to be interviewed.
2. I'll reply and give you five questions to answer.
3. You'll update your LJ with the questions answered.
4. You'll include this explanation.
5. You ask other people questions when they want to be interviewed. And it just keeps going, and going, and going....

Hope you all have a nice evening, I'm off to try to push the fuzzy dog off my pillow so I can get some sleep. :)
