Not really. I just couldn’t think of a clever S title. 🙂

Okay. Some may take the fact that I’m not doing this post until 10:09 PM on Saturday as an indication that I’m lazy. Well, I am. But that’s not why this post is so tardy. I have had an extremely busy day that involved taking my NEW CAR (squee!) to the dealership for some finishing touches; meeting the contractor at the house to give him the retainer and discuss the next steps (they’re starting the demolition on Tuesday–squee!), and drive home and hang with Joe and Emmylou for a while. Then go grocery shopping. In my NEW CAR (squee!). And right when I got home I got an invite from my bff Clover to go visit so I drove to Keller in my NEW CAR (squee!) and Clover and her family and Joe and I all went to El Rancho Grande for dinner. Then I drove him, yes, still in my NEW CAR (squee!) and now I’m putting this post up.  See, while we did get a brand new new vehicle back in 2003, Joe bought it. But in order to get all my GMAC family bonuses and stuff for this car, I had to be the buyer. Yes, I’m [redacted] years old, and this is the first car I personally have ever bought. It’s gorgeous–a 2012 Malibu LT, mocha, and it drives like a dream.

Okay. Sorry for the sidetrack. Now, here, with no further ado, is Chauceriangirl’s own personally selected list of awesome things that start with S:

I’ve been very excited to bring you this first person.

Supergrover! Here to save the day!

Look at that cheerful face, the big smile, the cape billowing in the wind. Doesn’t he inspire all kinds of confidence?

Sarah-bear. We met when I started working on a temp assignment that ended up turning permanent. It seems like we first really began to be friends when I was going through all the difficulties surrounding the death of my youngest sister, A. She had lost a sister to violence as well, even though it was on the other end of the spectrum, and she was there for me. And we’ve formed a firm friendship, and I feel really privileged to have her in my life. She’s currently off work with a broken foot. I have instructed her in no uncertain terms that the next time she feels the urge to break something, to hurl a dish or an ugly vase or something, because it’s boring at work without having lunch with her. I miss her.

Sesame Street!!!  I watched it when I was a kid, back in the dark–strike that–golden age of Sesame Street. The days when there was no sickeningly cute Elmo. I watched it long beyond when I probably should have quit, but I babysat a lot. Besides, I have a weakness for Muppets and infectious songs about counting.

I always loved when the baker spilled everything all over the place.

Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip!

The Seasons, starring Prairie Dawn and other assorted Muppets.

Sodalite. One of my favourites. I usually wear two sodalite nugget bracelets every day.

Isn’t it beautiful? Of course, my bracelets are made from tumbled sodalites, although I do have a nice sized sodalite chunk.

Tune in Monday when we talk about T’s, and I give away a CD of music by True Blue. You’ll definitely want to enter into the giveaway.  Peace out!
