Did it have buttercream frosting?

I'm completely convinced a proper birthday cake must contain copious amounts of buttercream.

No fondant, no marzipan flowers or royal icing.

But that might just be me. Blush


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That's how a couple of friends and I have begun to write a new chapter of Exodus about health care reform and we're both too stubborn to back down. It makes me both want to laugh and cry, but does bring a sad smile to write.

Friend 1: Exodus 23:25-26

25 worship the lord your god and his blessing will be upon your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you
26 as long as your provider is in-network on this high-deductible hmo did you get that test preauthorized

Friend 2: 27 otherwise your 80-20 doesn't count and the visit shall be full cost and shall credit to the deductible 28 unless it is specialist care, then it shall not

Friend 1: 29 maximum 7500 shall be your out of pocket excluding either out-of-network providers and prescriptions costs, which are not included

Me: 30. For out of network expenses, the LORD demands a burnt offering of the firstborn of your family. For the aroma is pleasing unto the LORD.

Friend 1: 31. If your firstborn has a pre-existing condition he shall not be good for sacrifice and his aroma is displeasing to the lord

Me: 32. Even as you offer reparations for this displeasing offering in the form of 20000 shekels of silver and a dozen unblemished lambs as a burnt sacrifice, you shall not grumble about returning to the land of Egypt, where you had universal health care under Pharaoh.

Brilliant! Thumbsup

Just got back from orientation for the job. Sorry for talking about it a lot, I promise I won't much more after this but it was great. Got my Employee ID so I can start getting discounts. Just got more orientation and computer training before I can actually start real training.

I thought about you first thing this morning and was hoping all went well!

Congrats...I know you have been looking for a while for a job. Thumbsup

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
I went to a farmers market by my house and treated myself to an $8 bouquet of flowers.

(Oh and $2 worth of asperagus)
