Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
This week I discovered Facebook. I know.....where have I been right?!!! I honestly always thought it was a high school thing. One of my friends ran into me and said, "You have to get on Facebook. EVERYONE is doing it!!" So, I caved to peer pressure again and joined.
I think I have been infected with the Facebook virus!!! It does something for your ego when people you haven't seen or talked to for almost 20 years send you a friend request and then tell you how great your family is, etc. It has been a lot of fun catching up with so many people.
My question for you you FACEBOOK?

I have been robbed!!!

Jaise and I get together with a couple of other girls for breakfast a couple of times a month.
We always go "dutch". So, we got our tax return back and me being the big spender that I am told everyone that breakfast was MY treat. Sit back, order anything you's on me!!!
Breakfast is cheap and there was only 6 of us and two of them were 3 year I figure $75 would be plenty of cash to have on hand.
So I proudly grab the bill and open my wallet.....I instantly start to SWEAT....where is my money?!! WTF!!!! They won't take checks and my debit card expired YESTERDAY!!!!
My friend grabbed the bill and said "I'll get it today, you can get it next time" It's a good thing I know her so well but I was still pissed off as to where my money was.
I went home and hopped on my treadmill to burn off some anger and then went to grab a recipe from the drawer in the kitchen and there is was....all crumpled $75!!!
My lovely 2 year old decided it would be better safe keeping in a drawer in my kitchen than in my wallet!!!!!

It was a double date with my friend Becky and her boyfriend. We went to pizza hut and back to her house to watch movies.
3. How many lurkers do you think you have that read your blog, but never comment?
I have no idea but there are probably a few.
Have you ever been successful at getting them to say hello?
If I don't know they are lurking, how do I know they have been here?
Do you mind the lurking?
I don't mind lurkers, although I do wish they would say, Hey!!!
Are you a lurker? Or do you try and comment every time you visit?
I comment 95% of the time. If I don't, it's because I'm in a hurry.
