Caffeine induced, Iím sure, but I donít care.
Undaunted by my sullen, grumpy daze,
They serve my cup of joe without despair.
It shames me now to think that this first draught
Is what I need to greet the day with joy,
That change is all I have to praise their craft,
That their spirit is what I should employ.
I sit. This simple mug, it should affect
A calm to pause, to think, and to reflect.

This deserves a BIG BRAVO !! xo

Also, just found out that the store I applied at is doing reference checks on me!!! Yeah, that means I most likely will make it to the next round of interviews. This will be nice as it is closer and will not be as hard on this old bod to stand and do cashier stuff instead of what I am doing now.
Good luck!!!

So cool. Re-living memories, especially Christmas ones, are so special. Sort of like CAH's home movies!

He brings back so many childhood Christmases.

I feel the same way, Xmas. I remember when these guys were still alive!!!

I wish I had some of my childhood Christmas stuff. It was all lost years ago between all the moves we did. I guess that is why I try to find old stuff that brings back some memories and why that Time/Life commercial means so much to me.

Here's wishing you the best of luck on this job! I thought of you earlier when I made a mug of hot chocolate using the mix and fresh marshmallows from Hell's Kitchen. Total yummo!
