If I Could Save Time In A Bottle.....

I'd have extra days to enjoy the new local Japanese buffet featuring all-you-can-eat crab legs!

I would never purposely ignore anyone. In real life I have an annoying habit of not realizing that somebody is speaking to me and I'll turn my back on them. Sometimes I even start to walk away before Papi calls my appalling social gaffe into attention. I'm worse than a deliberately rude person because I'm cluelessly rude. The blog world is different though. I don't have to think as hard on my feet or have my mind wander off aimlessly into a million directions so that I miss what's going on right in front of me. So, when you have a perceived notion that I'm rude because I don't respond to comments right away or take little blogging absences, it's not you. It's me. My Papi is finishing up school and has a grueling schedule along with an insane amount of work. I toil away at three different part-time jobs along with the joy of my 6 homeschooled children who demand that I feed them occasionally and rent Ninja Turtle videos. Due to Papi's overloaded course path this semester, I also inherited the privilege of taking over one of his part-time jobs twice a week too because my life just wasn't full enough. Idle hands are tools of the Devil, you know. Factor in basketball/soccer practices and ballet classes to the mix and you can see why I'm too exhausted to even pluck my overgrown eyebrows or extend my middle finger to inconsiderate drivers. I'm so tired during the middle of the week that I can't even perform my motherly chicken dancing duties with the kids. Weep for them. Anyway, thanks for putting up with me. I love all the comments. I am honor bound to reciprocate all comment action, it just takes a little longer for me to get around to it these days.

Enjoy the Infidel Jam Of The Day , "The Mating Game," located in the sidebar. There's a fabulous martini bar groove working throughout this slinky little jazz like song. Fans of Grey's Anatomy will likely recognize it as it's been used in a couple episodes.

And I thought I had issues with finding the right job. You, Madam Elastic, are a true champion.

I'd give you a hug but my metalness dictates I shan't do so lest I fear the Gods of Metal shall strike with me with lightning.

But I'll give a virtual hug nonetheless because I'm a person first. Whee!

Good night nurse!! When do you have time to sleep?! Or blog at all for that matter? It seems that the devil doesn't even have a chance to catch up with you--so maybe your calling and election is sure?
Absolve yourself now of any bloggy guilt!

One of my favourite muppet movie lines is, "Peoples is peoples." I'm not quite sure what it means, but I use it often regardless. You're a people! Got that?

And I regard responses to comments as extra gravy...completely optional, but oh so yummy.

Oh Elastic, you've never offended me! You're such a busy lady, I can't believe you have time to blog at all!

I tend to interrupt in conversations so if we were speaking together I'd probably think you got offended by my interrupting and walked away! LOL! :D

You just keep those funny posts coming girl and don't worry about commenting on comments.You can ignore me all you want just don't take my Elastic away.

I don't always respond to comments either - but you're a lot nicer than I am about it. I just leave people hanging. I should probably apologize - but forget it.

I don’t watch Grey's Anatomy, I love this song.
I LOVE your new player, it doesn’t start automatically (and thus disrupting my own super cool jamming tunes I listen to while I surf).
Thank you Elastic, once again your Infidelity and Smiliness proves you madam are an exceptional Blogger, truly devoted to your craft, your readers and your groupies.
No need to comment on my comment.

As long as I know you thought about me.

Elastic, Do NOT click here. Just don't!

Yikes Ewbl, three jobs to do, six kids to educate and a demanding blog public. I will lobby, nay demand, that a monument is built to you in Romford's market place!

is the shiz shiz shiz shiz shiz!

James Brown may have been the hardest working man in show business but I'm the hardest working woman in the making-ends-meet biz.

elizabeth- I rush in where angels fear to tread..... I'm a working fool!

kimberly- Homemade or store bought? Gravy in a jar, podwered gravy mix, or canned gravy? Brown or cream? I'm picky about my gravy, dang it!

suzanne- Let's join forces and alienate all the civilized social peoples everywhere!

carronin- We here at the Elastic Institute Of Misery thanks you for your fine support and words of encouragement.

millie- True blogger love means never having to say you're sorry..........

NCS- I often have my speaker volume cranked waaaaay up and some blogs startle me. Especially at night. I'm trying to break my audio code habit now but my new little video place, slack time, doesn't offer a lot of coolness for me to pick from. Although, they DO have White And Nerdy, just for Millie! I looked at the link despite the fair warnings not to. Curiosity killed the elastic. I like Rachael's new fluffy and delicious looking necklace in that picture though.

jams- I am but a mere woman. A mere fat woman. A monument of me would likely exhaust most building material resources in England and halt the thriving construction market. That would weigh even heavier on my already guilt laden conscience!
