Getting Ready for the Academy Awards

"I would like to thank my director - Dan, my assistant directors, my boss - Eileen, who had such faith when she hired me in 1981 and my supervisor, Andrea who believes in me. To my co-workers who have stood by me and taught me much about the use of the computer, I thank you. I also would like to thank my loving family - my parents for giving me the gift of life, my sister who is my best friend. And, to Wes - I love you, man! To Anne for her supprt and patience as I went through my "bad jumper" phase. To John, for not throwing me out of the car when I brought him to high school wearing those embarassing sunglasses. To Jed, for accepting me as his MIL in spite of my bad cooking. To my friends, near and far - you know who you are! To all those "little people" (literally...they are between the ages of 2 to 5) I have worked with over the years. If I have forgotten to express my gratitude to any of you who have made me the person I am today, I beg your forgiveness. For all, I thank you from the bottom of my heart with "love, peace and soul!" Oh, and thank, you Don Cornelius!"
So, if I ever am presented with a really big award, I will be ready! For now, it just had to be the prize of getting a plateful of chocolate/chocolate chip cookies for being the winner of the random raffle drawing for replying (along with many others) to our staff blog. I'm the luckiest girl, am I not?

I will never be able to keep up with you, Deb - you are the blog queen. Sorry I missed the festivities - did you save me a cookie? ha ha

Ha! Hilarious, Deb. I thought you at least "won" Employee of the Month, or something. But hey, way to go with the cookies. And hang on to that speech for next month's Employee of the Month contest. ;)
