How is it possible that it's Monday all over again, and that my week long vacay is over already?????

This was me all weekend!  I kept telling myself that I needed to get up and do something productive from Friday morning on.  And it just never happened...

Well, I did email out a crappy paper for my workshop that was due this morning.  I only needed to get a passing grade for it, since it's only a pass/fail credit.  I didn't put in an excessive amount of work on it, so hopefully I'll pass.  I worked on it for two days - meaning, I opened up the Word document, then found any and every reason not to work on it.  I'd spend two minutes on it, then four hours doing anything else.  And then the cycle would repeat itself several times into the next evening.

I had such high hopes for getting shizz done over the week off from work/school/internship, but alas, laziness phoned in and said that I needed a break from the world.  And so that's exactly what I did.

Just three more weeks and I shall free again for Christmas break!
Took this from here.  

1.  In what month did you file your tax return this year?  

I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think probably March.  That's usually about the time I file them.  I like to do them then so that I can use my tax refund to pay for the chi's annual shots.  

2.  If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be?  Describe it.  (Bonus points if you give a recipe!)

Ice cream, extra butterscotch syrup, and sprinkles!  (That's a recipe, right?)  Or anything with sprinkles on it, really.  It would be called *Sprinkles Delight*.

You KNOW it had to have sprinkles!!!  

3.  Why is it important to have good manners?

I have worked in customer service in one way or another for a number of years, so I can easily and honestly answer this one!  If you're rude to me for no reason, I will lose respect for you.  I will not go out of my way to help you.  In fact, I will be willing to do a lot less for you.  If you're nice, I will probably go above and beyond to help you out in any way that I can.  

Plus, doesn't it feel good to leave a good impression?  You never know when you might run into that person again, even if you think you might never seem them again.  If you're rude, you an bet they'll remember it.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
My very first thought was that it looked like ruins from a Greek temple.  When I clicked on it to save it, it was named Parthenon.  So yep, that's exactly what it is!  Read all about it here, and see a better picture of it there too.

We are taxed on earnings directly on the payroll here so most people do not file tax returns. A cocktail would be nice and as for manners well as the saying goes manners machete man. That pic makes us think of a holiday. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

All our paws are crossed that you pass your paper. It is so hard getting motivated to do stuff - that's probably why my dress has been sitting there 6 weeks waiting for me to hem it!

Sometimes you just need to relax and forget the to do list!
