Well That Was Firetruckin' Festive!

....on new "swear words," Shawn's belated birthday party, and our makeshift Christmas decorations.

Yep....I work in a special place! LOL! No really, we're goofs and we love it. We recently had to come up with fake swear words because...well...I can't exactly remember the reason. So a few of us created a list and have been pretty good about following it! Except for Shawn, on the day he knocked over an entire skid of blueberries :-)

So.....if you're really, really mad at someone...for example, the other day, when Shawn wouldn't leave me alone, you would say... "you sugarcrispy, firetruckin melon farmer! Just go to the farmer's market!" You can take from that what you like.....we know what it means, and I'm sure you can assume hahaha.

We found out that Shawn's birthday had passed a couple of weeks ago and he didn't tell any of us. When we asked why, he said that he didn't think we'd care. So of course, since this is completely untrue, we threw him a little belated surprise party the next morning....here are some pics....

Our "decorating"...notice the little plate of cupcakes ontop the the salad pile :-)

I had "fun" fighting with Cora, my pineapple coring machine while waiting for Shawn to get to work

Shawn reading his card
Hiding behind a box to eat his cupcake because it's "against the rules" to eat in the backroom LOL!

Me and Holly!
 And finally...we were quite upset that we're the only department that can't decorate for Christmas (stupid health department rules!) so we decided to use what he had.....a branch that had fallen off the trees the floral department sells, a grape tomato, a twist tie, and a pineapple chunk...to make our own "Christmas tree!" here it is.....

And in the words of...us....isn't that firetruckin festive? LOL!

Now....I have an hour to stitch before I have to be at the museum :-) Have a great day!!


  1. You guys look like you had SOOO much fun. I like goofballs!

  2. Do you realize how hard that is to say three times fast and on one foot. Coz you know, it always means so much more faster and on one foot. What a fun entry Jodie.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. Hi,
