We Have A Winner

By a vote of about 14 to 5 (with a few non-committers),
Special K is the preferred choice.

I still think I prefer "The K" but now that a few of you mentioned it, I can't seem to get "The Donald" out of my head when I say it. Lord knows I don't need to be associated with that crazy hairstyle. I have enough hair issues of my own. So the name has been officially changed.

By the way, this really was a nickname of mine that started in Jr High. It was back during the height of 80's rap music. When everyone wanted to be ghetto fabulous. My then BFF and I had sweatshirts made with our nicknames. She was Little D and I was Special K. She was 4'11 and still is, hence the name. Hmmm...funny how if you wait 20 years things always come back into fashion. Here I am Special K again in all my ghetto fabulousness.

Been a busy week so far. Going to the gym regularly now. Yay for that. Usually 3 times a week. Still working twice a week at my second job. So my weeknights are most definitely full. Tomorrow night after a full 8 hours at #1 job and a couple more at #2 job, I'm going to visit a friend who retired from the #1 job and moved to Minnesota. In fact, I think he's your neighbor, Julie. He mentioned that he used to drive over the bridge every day on his way to work. Anyway, he and I used to be partners back many years ago. He just recently got re-married. They're in town for the holiday weekend to visit family. Looking forward to tipping back a few with him and the new bride and reminiscing about the good ole days.

Then spending the weekend getting ready for vacation. Which I am so looking forward too! Only 8 more days until I'll be laying on the beach with my frozen margarita.
Not like I'm counting or anything. :P

PS- I still like "THE K" better- these people have no taste. :-)

Gym three times a week? You go, girl. Keep it up! It can be a challenge when the weather is hot. I'm following suit - feels good, doesn't it?

I like Special K, but I think it's because it was my nick for a while as well. Gotta love K names. :)

wow....too funny. when I first moved to Portland 11 1/2 yrs ago, one of my colleagues at work named me "Special K". He left the company before I did, but we're in the same industry & have been good friends over the years- everytime I see him or get an email from him it's always to "Special K". No one else calls me that, just this one friend....funny.
So...I'd say...good name!!!

I soooo live for vacations!! I love Mexico - you are so lucky. Ahhh...Marg's on the beach....nothin better than that. Maybe a hot cabana boy will serve them? Even better.
