6. I think I'm going to leave work early today. Just because.

  1. Floaties for the cats...I think I'm more worried about the dogs than I am anything else.

  2. Haha, your stock portfolio makes me laugh. Hilarious!

  3. Funny. I picked my stocks because it was stuff I use -- Whole Foods, Exxon...

  4. At least you don't enjoy the smell of bus exhaust like Dude. If you didn't have the gig, I'd invite you to come stay up here until the hurricane past. Kick butt on your run tomorrow, if there is one!
