Ladies and Germs, I am headed off to the Redneck Room. (That is just an affectionate term that another blogger named the room where we colleagues meet and talk so loudly) There is no such thing as a place in a restaurant called a Redneck Room. It is just what my blogger Pal, whom I miss very much, called it in a comment he made way back when. He said "I'll go get the Redneck Room ready" after I had written a blog describing how loud and happy we get, and how we run others out of the room who dare encroach to sit and eat their meals. They apparently can't abide our noise and constant laughter. His comment tickled me then-- and it still does to this minute.
I wish he would stop by again after all this time and see how enduring that one comment he made still is. LOL.
At the Redneck Room, we will have a very early lunch. Our bellies are still set to 1100 hrs. as that is about the time we ate (or still do, for those who are working) our lunch. When you start your working day way before 0500, you are really ravenous by 1030 which is when we usually tore into our lunches. If it was midnights instead of yucky days, then we ate about the same time at NIGHT--- 2230 (or 10:30 PM. )
We are L-O-U-D because it is a habit ingrained because many times, noise was such that you kept your radio almost wide open in order to hear crucial things. You could use an ear type receiver but it got in the way. And we are loud because we are happy to be together, working or not. It is a close knit family as no one does what we do. So we can trade experience and other related things that are ours alone.
So, I'm off to be loud...look as pretty as I can as there are few women other than me. (not a job for most ladies, very demanding in several ways).
Anyhow, I had a fabulous birthday (September 25th). My family showed up on Friday, two days later by choice as I had school Thursday the 25th till 2100. What a GREAT evening. I'm not allowed to say yet, as it is early on in my grandchild's development, but I got to know the sex of the baby, and what a celebration! I was squired out to a more upper end restaurant for my supper and ice-cream later with lots of laughing. Almost like the redneck room atmosphere. I have a Pandora bracelet with, what else, a kitty charm to start. I have an Apple brand (I'm a MAC person) new WIFI unit. My guy was at least 9 years old. And, I have a new purse, Hello Kitty! I LOVE it. It is not girly as there is a black background with small Hello Kitty faces on it. Generous size. It's going to the RedNeck Room today. And a card to being tears to my eyes it was so loving.
Seer you over there..let's eat!
