Cool prop, viceroy and comfort food

- Co-worker Nick's motorcycle, after being stolen, recovered and then considered "totaled" by the insurance company. Looks OK to me. He placed it in the nether regions of the printing warehouse for safekeeping for now. I use it to prop on when making private phone calls. :)

- Playing "Words with Friends" with a former co-worker and a (missing) blog friend. And a little thrill yesterday when I played a 72 point word and WWF named me the "Viceroy of Vocabulary." Woo hoo! Isn't "viceroy" a fun word?

- Fake meatloaf and real mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy (swoon) at the natural food grocery hot food bar. Comfort food and the couch at the end of a long day.

Dear Madam Viceroy, your vocabulary should NEVER include "fake meatloaf". And, be sure you only prop yourself on a parked motorcycle and not a moving one.

Fake meatloaf does not sound good in anyway. Mashed 'taters, I'll take any day. Yay on the BIG word. You rock the schoolhouse!

Granny Annie -

It is some sort of soy crumble that resembles beef. I like it because it has peppers and onions in it and ketchup on top. Yum. :)

happygirl -

It's good though! I thought I would die from joy when I saw those potatoes. They are perfection.

The big word was "diatribe" - I had it positioned so that it counted triple.

I love words with friends too, all except the ads.

Lynn, I am on the left side of the photo, with gray hair.

I don't think pancakes can suffice this morning after imagining that meatloaf with peppers, onions and gravy -- even if it is "fake" sounds pretty tasty to me. I'd be the Viceroy of vegan with that on my plate.

I have not heard of that game "Words with Friends." Something online, is it?

The schoolbus has come and gone. I think I'll go lie down for a while! :)

"Fake meatloaf and real mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy;" Wow-- that sounds good! Groovy cycle, too, Lynn. Love that red!

Lynn said...

Judy -

Yes - that part drives me crazy, too. It's good to see your face - I guess your other readers know you a little better. I just wasn't sure which one was you. :)

Jannie -

Hehe on the viceroy of vegan. :) Hope that lie down was good!

It is groovy. Nick is very cool - he had a leather jacket and helmet to match that motorcycle. I don't understand exactly why it can't be ridden now.

oOoOoOo! PLESE take me to lunch with you, Lynn. You seem to find the most wonderful places and meals.

What happened to the Braves?!? I hope they get in!

Gone and back
Now no more
A prop to call home

A viceroy she rained
With a seventy two string
Not thought of in Rome

Natural food and a hot food bar
(swooned her)
like a fine-tooth comb

Nice motorcyle. I wouldn't mind leaning on it (or riding it) as well.

I used to love playing Words with Friends. I'll see if I get the app again and look for you. Wouldn't that be fun?? :)

Have yourself a great night, amiga!!

My co-worker Damien has a bike that looks just like that one! But still runs- Hope it gets fixed up soon- must be bent or motor dead-
We aren't allowed phones while on the clock- Sounds like the Scrabble game? Good for you-
I like real meatloaf- wish I could afford it more often. Yep- Hungry again!

You mean you think the fake meatloaf sounds good? :) Come on down and we'll go to lunch. :)

The Braves season ended last night with a loss to the Phillies. Such is life... The good news is - I get my friends Kim and Robert back. They are glued to the Braves on Friday nights.

Ellis -

I like it! Thank you for my poem - it made me smile. :)

Ily -

Since we are facebook friends, that should be easy. Let's do it!

Snaggle -

It's a cool cycle, no doubt. Not sure what is wrong with it.

The last time I had meatloaf was in the "Cheesecake Factory" in AZ. All I remember thinking was who manages to eat this much food??? It was nice though, but one slice was enough for me!

Lynn said...

Joe -

The Cheesecake Factory has portions that are too large. I wish restaurants like that would cut the portions down and charge less.
