    ROCO Friday – What’s the 411?

    You Bring Me Joy (What's a 411 edition without a little Mary J?) <insert a low, almost rumbling, soulful humming, southern baptist church style here> Good people of the ROCO congregation: We have come here today to celebrate the day that is ROCO Friday.  A day that is looked upon as the best day of the week.  A day that knows no black or white.  A day that is equal opportunity for everyone!  Let the congregation say ROCO! <TESTIFY!> We have traversed the trials and tribulations of another week and are able to hold our heads up high! (Until we go drinking tomorrow night and hang our heads down low,…

    ROCO Friday – 4 squared

    Wow, that just took me back.  We used to play four square on the playground when I was in 5th grade.  Four square and Release.  Release is a version of tag.  Good times. The end of our week of quiet is near.  Tomorrow we pick up Kiddo from the airport.  The weekend is stuffed to the max with things to do.  Paper writing, airport trips, baseball games, shopping, returning, helping, Keys(!), banking, feeding, whew!  It's one busy weekend.  ROCO! So I missed last week's edition of ROCO Friday, but rest assured that I was partaking in a ROCO…or someone was…ahahahahaha! This week has flown by!  We've got the summer vacation dates…

    Let’s Get Ready to RrrrrrrrrOCO Friday

    With all due props to Michael Buffer. We have successfully negotiated our way through another week, let the congregation say ROCO! So, Kiddo didn't get into the cool school.  She's stuck now just going to regular school.  She had somewhat prepared herself for the rejection though.  She saw the art submitted by the other kids trying out and realized that they kinda blew her out of the water.  I think she still had a little glimmer of hope but she wasn't all torn up about not getting in. Lovey and I had decided that if she got in, we would stay here another four years, but if she didn't, we…

    ROCO Friday – the first March edition

    Greetings to the readership.  And the readership said, "ROCO!" It's a ROCO Friday and even better since it's payday.  I get to pretend like I have money for about a half hour until I pay my bills then it's back to reality.  But, I'm still thankful that I've got enough to pay those couple of bills and have a few bucks to spare.  And the readership said, "ROCO!" Today, the Shynerscope said that grounding energy might be working to smother my fire.  I will not have that!  I am burning brightly today, so if you're a wet blanket, stay away!  By all means, the best part of today's Shynerscope was…

    ROCO Friday – delayed

    And so, since no one rocks out on Monday, but hopefully you get your cock out if you've got one, here's the slightly delayed version. Last week was wonderfully calm and quiet.  Basically, it consisted of getting my classes all straightened out so that I can graduate with my AA in December rather than February.  Baby steps people. I refuse to be a slave to Corporate America for any longer than is absolutely necessary. We came to the realization that it's gonna be four more years in Miami, unfortunately (barring lottery wins or other huge piles of money falling on us).  Kiddo has an interview for her magnet school coming…
