Thanks Luke!

While I still have a few hours left of November where I'm at, I might as well make a post on here now.


Should I lock the November one, or would that be unfair to folks in the US, such as me?

Keep it open for a while longer as it's still November in the US (this is a predominantly US board after all)

That's true...after all, I'm in the US, as I always have been.


I may or may not be back online later, though. I hope I'll have an opportunity get online tomorrow.

Still got a few hours of November here, but TOMORROW I will be standing in line at the post office to buy stamps and mail christmas cards out.

Also I hope to put my tree up tomorrow and do dishes (once again) I don't know how we get some many dirty ones so fast.  I swear I don't cook that much.  ;D

I went shopping for my gift exchange gift here, but could only find a few small things.  Nothing especially exciting.  I wish I were a better shopper.  At least I got my mom and dad crossed off my Christmas list.  NO idea what to get my brother either.  *sigh*  :-\\

I moved these quotes from November because I think it very important that Howard get this.

Quote from: Howard on November 30, 2007, 03:11:12 PM
I'm having a good day so far.I was talking with my job coach and he was telling me things to do with all my saved money like invest in gold nuggets,sell my Michael Jackson memorabilia,Penny Power magazines or just go on Ebay and buy stuff that'll go up in value many years from now.


Quote from: Gis on Today at 05:11:13 AM
Howard this man is not a very good job coach judging by things you have told us on here and he DEFINITLY does not know what he is talking about when it comes to finance! Please don't listen to him!



Gis is absolutely right.  DON'T DO IT Your coach is way way off base, this is so egregious your job coach should be reported.  I have worked in investments, and I am a collector and am very familiar with the collectors market.  Investing in collectibles is the absolute worst thing anyone can do because it is subject to the whims.  Remember Beanie Babies? Remember Cabbage Patch Dolls?  Well people who were foolish enough to get caught up in those collectible frenzies will never recover.  Even the proven collectible market, like stamps and baseball memoribilia has its pitfalls. The collectibles market it for people who already have money to burn, because that is what happens a lot, they get burned.  Considering your income bracket the best you should do is putting your money in IRAs' or CDs' at your bank. If I was there I would be tempted to punch your job coach in the mouth.

I think Howard is worried about investing it in CDs or in the bank because Social Security can track investments thru banks and once you aquire so much in assets, well then you don't get Social Security disability anymore (or at least a very reduced rate anyways).

That is my guess why he wants to do it in tangible goods even if it isn't the smartest option.

That is just an assumption, of course.

Disability works differently.  He is not on welfare so different rules apply, it would be better for him to speak to someone in the Social Security Office, or have his parents handle the excess, they, I am sure, have his best interests at heart.  That job coach still should be reported because the idea of suggesting that his money goes into collectibles is still egregious.

Holy crap, I didn't even realize it was December yet.

I'm excited! On Friday, one of my favorite musicians, Orion Rigel Dommisse, is coming to a town that's about 20 minutes from where I live, and putting on a show for $3. I just found out that I am, indeed, off that day. Hopefully I can get someone to go with me. Oh well, though. If not, I'll be glad to fly solo. Not many of my friends would like her anyway.. =P.

I agree with Danoota, Howard. That is the worse investment you can make. Most people know that I collect coins. I don't collect as an investment, I collect because I love them-and that is why most people collect whatever. Things are only worth what someone is willing to buy it for. You may have something that some people value at so much money but if no one is willing to buy it for that price-then it is not worth it. You should talk to someone at your bank. Most banks have financial advisers who KNOW what they are talking about and can give you some GOOD advice as to where to invest your $$$. Even putting it in a savings account would be better than investing it in collectibles.

I'm going to try to find a new mattress and box springs. Shopping for these is as big a deal as buying a car, so chances are good I won't have anything tonight.

The warranty finally came through on our "old" (read: 8 months) pair that is so badly bowed it's like sleeping in a hammock.

Thing is I really don't feel up to it today.

I told Rice that if he gets a good tax return, we are trading in the beat down mattress we have. That thing is messed up. :P

We went to IKEA today (44 miles away in Schaumburg). When we left, it was just overcast and cold. We come out of IKEA (where I managed to spend $100 without trying), and it's snowing a tiny bit. We hit the mall to eat some lunch, come out of there, and there's a freakin' snowstorm! Needless to say, it took almost an hour and a half to get home.

Now I'm here, willing myself to clean up this place. ::)

No sleeping in today, geez, Diane woke me up at 830am. dang!!!  So we took a morning drive to San Jose & picked up Julie for the weekend. She's now crashed out on the couch, Diane's out shopping for garland for our Christmas tree (hallelujah!) no more tinsel!  I went and bought a Oakland Raiders tee shirt at JC Penney to wear to the game in Oakland tomorrow against the Denver Broncos. My pal always takes me to one game a year with his season tix, and tomorrow is the day. those fans are stupid crazy there  :D  

Got my haircut the other night in downtown Danville and they have all the huge trees and some business's decorated with lights so it looks awesome at night. I'm gonna try to get some pics, especially of the one giant oak tree in the middle of the road. I think Jessica & Rice have seen this wonderful visual.

Well, a new mattress will have to wait. Apparently only the box springs were warrantied, and the store di not get the fax from King Coil yet with that tidy little bit of information.

In the meantime, I've been reading more on buying mattresses - I've found out some pretty good things which will help when we do get a new set.

Can't wait to hear Phillip's report!  I bet it was a great concert.

Mike, I'm glad you are happy with the tree, but I'm guessing you are feeling a wee bit sentimental when you saw the Baby's first Christmas and baby pic of Julie?

We had a great day except that Micah isn't feeling well.  We did the Dawg Days at Ferris, got the cake, and checked into the Holiday Inn so Micah could finally have her swimming party.  They swam for quite a while (I did the jacuzzi for a little while), then we walked down the hall to Bennigan's for dinner.  Unfortunately, we were so late that the servers had all left, so there wasn't anyone to sing Happy Birthday to her.  Back in the hotel room now, waiting to see what the weather is going to do because it will affect our plans tomorrow (whether we go to GR to the mall or not).  The funniest part was my mom calling to make sure we weren't out on the roads tonight (and she thought we had called her).  She also needed to vent because my dad is getting worse mentally.  I feel so bad for her and wish I could be over there more often.  We are going over next weekend and I'll do all the cooking and give her a break with my dad.  Of course my brother called simply to ask about the weather and tell them it is 80 in FL.  I know he thinks it is funny, but for me the novelty has completely worn off.  We are in MI and he is in FL, it is December...duh, of course it is nicer down there than here!!!  He needs to realize that not all of us are in a position (unemployed) to drop everything and move across country to live with someone we met online.  Besides, someone needs to be close to the folks now.  My mom simply told him that she was talking to him from the garage because she was trying to scrape a path to the back door and since it was snowing, sleeting, etc. she really didn't have time to talk.  :)  I was proud of her.

Happy December everyone--I think it is going to be a wonderful month!!!!  :)

I tell you what, I sure hope my daughter is as caring and concerned like you, when I'm an old man needing attention, although I'd rather be in good health. I applaud you for your love for your family.

Well, in the time I was gone, I have been dedicating my time between family & getting the band promoted.

Mom is on a "mini-vacation", which means we get our lives back for a bit.

On a good note:
I have been able to get the band promoted into 2 top-spot gigs for February.
I was put in charge of promotions for the band about 1 1/2 weeks ago.
In that time, I lined up 2 gigs and have about 5 more I'm waiting to hear from.

And I have spent more time on family matters....so my time away has been well-spent.

So I was busy last night.

Me and my friend went out to watch the Mizzou - Oklahoma game. Anyway, one thing led to another and as per usual we were way way too drunk to drive anywhere.

So, he called his girlfriend to give us a lift.

She came up with a friend of hers and ended up staying at the same bar we were in for a while.

I go off to play darts with a guy I'd bumped in to that I knew from a while back.

I'm playing for about 20 minutes before I get a tap on the shoulder and my friend starts going in to this great diatribe about something or other, I won't go in to details but needless to say he was pissed off. Well, if said actions had in fact occurred I'd have been pissed off as well. At this point in time I figured the chances of my getting a ride were slim to nill so I did the normal and drank water for the next hour or so and shoved some food down my face so I'd sober up a bit.

Anyway, I turn my phone on this morning when I got up about a half an hour ago. Apparently this has been an on-going saga because his girlfriend is pissed off that we go out drinking so much. As he pointed out to her, both of us haven't lived in town that long and thus when either wants to do something, the list of possible drinking partners is limited. She'd managed to spin a web of lies and get him that pissed off at me but apparently it all became clear some time last night and he told her to go f**k herself.

If we were 13 this would be funny.. however at this point in life it's just a bit pathetic.

We went to a brunch that was put on by our accountant/friend for all his clients for his 20th anniversary of being an accountant. Man, there were A LOT of people there-in fact, they had 2 different times. We were all sort of counting the people and thinking if this guy made so much $$$ off of each one- :o :o :o  But, him & his wife are just super-nice people. In fact, I graduated with his wife and Carlos used to work with him. We also saw a lot of other people we haven't seen in a while. When he came around to our table, he joked that it was the "college" table because that was where most worked.


At least I was able to fit into a dress.  :D ;D ;D

I just got back from the Oakland Raider game, had a great time. got to see the rookie QB JaMarcus make his NFL debut, the Raiders beat up on Denver, and I even got to snuggle up with a Raiderette cheerleader for a cute lil pic, just her & me. They come up into the stands for photos with the fans. maybe I'll post it. now as soon as Julie has had dinner, we're driving her back to SJSU, which coincidently is where the cheerleader graduated, same school my kid goes too. that made me feel old, like her dad  :o  wait a sec.

Can I swing this round here for a moment? How would you feel if 3 or 4 nights a week, EVERY week, Lady Di went out with a friend and got completely wasted.? Iin between she would be a hungover mess and when she was feeling ok on the phone to her buddy.

I hardly think the girlfriend was being unreasonable here and I'm pretty sure that this morning she's glad to be an ex! It's not a case of choosing friends over partners but making time for both.

;D  just kidding Gis and of course if the shoe is on the other foot, things look different. I've had that perspective and thinking thrown at me by the Lady herself and yeah, time for both, but your mate or spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, SO  should be a priority.   i know it's one thing to say this, and another to do it.  my best friend at work is divorcing her hubby, a good friend of mine because he'd rather spend time with the guys than her. over the years it got to be too much and she's done. it is sad but he could have made some changes and not been so selfish. oh well  :(

yeah, she probably did, and was just adding anotherangle (2 cents)  & I felt a wee bit defensive, just wanted to make sure that my joking w/Davey is perceived as such and it probably was.  However, when my wife is brought in as an example, then that makes me feel like a point is being made  ::)

In either event, points were indeed made, and humor was recognized, at least in my view.

we drove to Boston yesterday to meet friends.  We went for an interesting lunch - it was a chocolate buffet.  I tried not to overdo it, it was lovely.  Then we went to the children's museum and had fun.  Today we went orienteering near Boston.  It was so cold.  Dai and I had underestimated quite how cold it was going to be and had to borrow snow pants for the children from our friends.



Ohhh, sorry that you came up here on a cold, cold, day.  Boston can be gorgeous on a nice fall day, but yesterday wasn't it.  What did you see in Boston?  I could recommend a couple of offbeat things if you are interested.  With kids keep in mind this for the spring(if I don't mention it now I will forget).  On Mothers Day they have a "Make Way For Ducklings" parade.  All the little kids dress up in duckling costumes and have a little parade when they return the bronze ducklings to the Public Garden.  It is great fun.  I don't know if you know of the book, it is a kids favorite over here.  It would be nice for your kids, I would advise it for Christmas.

Can I swing this round here for a moment? How would you feel if 3 or 4 nights a week, EVERY week, Lady Di went out with a friend and got completely wasted.? Iin between she would be a hungover mess and when she was feeling ok on the phone to her buddy.

I hardly think the girlfriend was being unreasonable here and I'm pretty sure that this morning she's glad to be an ex! It's not a case of choosing friends over partners but making time for both.

We only went to the hotel for lunch then across to the children's museum.  On Sunday we went to Houghton's Pond near Blue Hills Reservation.  Dai did the Blue Hills Traverse race and I took some children around the children's orienteering course which basically just went around Houghton's Pond.  Then the children were on the playground and I was trying to keep warm until Dai finished his race.  The friends have invited us back for another visit (date uspecified).

That Mother's Day thing sounds really sweet!  Not sure if my two are a bit old for that now.  :-\\

Today was a late start day for the schools due to the black ice.  We can't get a car down our driveway (Dai tried!).  It seems to be thawing a little now, though it's still foggy/damp out.

Mom is on a "mini-vacation", which means we get our lives back for a bit.

On a good note:
I have been able to get the band promoted into 2 top-spot gigs for February.
I was put in charge of promotions for the band about 1 1/2 weeks ago.
In that time, I lined up 2 gigs and have about 5 more I'm waiting to hear from.

And I have spent more time on family matters....so my time away has been well-spent.

Yeah Amy, I'm very sentimental when it comes to my daughter, and you know what it's like. She's 18, she took off in her car tonight to go to her friends 18th birthday party. Now I feel like pulling out some old photo albums of her when she was a little kid and sitting with Diane and tearing up together.  :\'(

I tell you what, I sure hope my daughter is as caring and concerned like you, when I'm an old man needing attention, although I'd rather be in good health. I applaud you for your love for your family.



I know what you mean, Mike.  My daughter turns 18 in 20 days.  I was putting her senior picture in the frame that holds all of her 8x10 school pics and pulled out the photos from years past.  The physical changes alone are completely amazing...yet I can still see my baby in her.  I'm glad you have someone with whom you can sit on the couch and tear up with....

Thank you for your kind words and compliments.  I don't know that I deserve them as I am just doing what any adult child would do if they lived close enough.  I do love my parents, though, and would do anything for them.  It's funny what my dad's fall has done to my family.  Of course I grew up knowing my parents love me, but my mom has said the words more in the last few months than in the first 40 years of my life.  :)  She is also asking my help to figure out the medical bills that are piling up.  I'm pleasantly surprised that she thinks I will be able to figure them out (although I do have some experience since I am still getting University of Michigan and Priority Health insurance to work together to pay Micah's hospitalization bills from LAST fall).

I hope you enjoy good health for many decades to come and there is no doubt in my mind that Julie will be a caring, loving, attentive daughter.  After all, she has you and Lady Di as her role models.    ;)

Yes, sales tax varies between states.  Here it's about 6% I think.  You have to pay attention to this because most prices displayed don't include tax.  So in a shop when I'm making a small purchase I get the right change ready and then need to scrabble around for a few more coins!

I wouldn't risk it Karen. Ice and snow like that are treacherous. I had to walk through that mixture the other night to get the dog to go to the bathroom. I almost fell five different times.

As for sales tax, I wish I had yours. We have one of the highest taxes in the nation over here, 9%, plus a 2% food tax. And they're thinking of raising it. :o

Today I'm going to finish up my tamales. I made the meat mixture last night, now I just got to make the masa and steam them up. It smells so good whenever I open my refrigerator.

Don't know if anyone remembers me -- I used to go by M.e.l.h.i.  (without the dots) around these parts... and still do, everywhere else.  I used to be a regular parody contributer and editor on AmIright.  I sent ChuckyG an e-mail a few months ago to resign the last of my editor positions, explaining what's got my schedule too full and he asked that if I got time, I stop in and let some of the old gang know what's had (and still has) me so busy.  So, I had a few minutes, this morning and thought... what the heck. 

Since my last post to inthe00s, I ran for public office, at the County level, and in a very "red" district where 16% would have been an excellent showing for a Dem, I got 40% of the vote.  Not enough to win, but  more than enough to come away feeling pretty darned good.  Almost immediately after my election was over, my own campaign manager threw his hat in the ring for Mayor and asked me to serve as his media coordinator -- I did and, unlike me, he won his election!

I'm a pretty fortunate person -- everything seems to have a way of working out for the best for me.  While I was running for office, I got involved with my county's Regional Planning Commission's effort to create a private county-wide cooperative Economic Planning & Development Corp.  This is something I've wanted for my county for about 20 years.  I was asked by the chair of the RPC to serve on the Steering Committee that was formed to draft the framework for the corporation and, in all, I spent more than a year helping to build it.  When Steering folded and the corporation's initial board of directors was selected, I fully expected my involvement to end, but I was asked to serve on the board of directors as a representative of my City and also asked to serve on the board as a representative of the County at large -- obviously, I can't hold two seats... and I am better suited to the at-large.  After I was appointed, I drew a three year term and I have the distinction of being the only female on the board.  I cannot hold public office concurrently with an at-large seat, so I won't be runnng for office again for at least 3 years -- which is fine, because I'm where I want to be, where I can effect the most good and my plate is too full to fit in a campaign, anyway.

Two years ago, almost to the day, I decided it was time to put my creativity and my addiction to politics to work for me and I have a few POD stores scattered about and summoning forth the spirits of dead Presidents for me.  Don't worry, I'm not going to advertise any of them, here, but if someone who remembers me is curious and wants to have a looksee at some of my designs, my main shop is on CafePress,  just tack my old nick (the one mentioned above -- but all lower case and without the dots -- onto CafePress's url.  If I type my nick correctly, here, it will automatically convert to MooRocca.)

Finally, my good friend & business partner, Samuel, and I have spent the last 10 months building the USBuyBid Auto Wholesale Network - a (in the process of being patented) system that's going to revolutionize the automobile wholesale industry. Samuel and I are both wearing a LOT of hats through the build and have both worked almost around the clock on this, for months on end -- we've been in software development for the last 6 months and our launch is tentatively scheduled for Mar. 3, 2008... and as busy as I've been with it up 'til now, I'm going to be a LOT busier the first 3 to 5 years after we launch.

Of course, my husband and kids still come first and always will... without them, what's the poiint of anything else?  Speaking of kids, my oldest is engaged to a young man I couldn't be more thrilled to welcome into our family!  :)  So, this is a busy, but joyous time in my life. 

So... that's why I never get time to pop in anymore and probably won't again for a long time... work, work, work... and yes, I know it makes me a dull girl.  Speaking of which, if I've bored you all into a group coma -- aim those torches and pitchforks at Chucky -- he put me up to it!    :)

Really gotta get back to work, now... take care everybody!  (Hope I picked the right thread for this -- sincere appologies if I did not!)

In what way?  ???

Some things are (or seem) quite cheap here.  Things like clothing, electronic/electrical goods, bikes etc.  Food shopping is expensive (though a friend suggested it was because we tried to eat the same/similar foods to we would in the UK rather than adopting an American diet) but eating out is cheap.

We're supposed to get 3 inches of snow tonight, which isn't really anything for this area.  The only problem was that the fluid for the windshield/screen on the van wasn't pumping out anymore, but the tank was full.  No problem, took it to our trusted mechanic.  Several hours later, it turns out that the motor for the windshield fluid burnt out and burnt some of the wiring as well and because my van is such a pain in the patootie to fix (whomever designed was a masochist), the part cost $35 but labor was $165!  *sigh*  It's always something.  lol
But as I said to my husband, we might have been able to get by without the fluid but I know just as soon as I got on the highway after a big snow, the sloppiest truck would splash the windshield with slush and I'd either have to pull to the side of the road to handwash the windshield or drive with my head stuck out of the side window.

Hubby helped me with some of my card envelopes today.  It is so nice to get some help.  Well basically he more or less stuck stamps on the envelopes and signed his name to his relatives cards and my parents card.  He also sorted out the envelopes that are going out of the country.  HOPEFULLY if I get my butt in gear tomorrow, I will finally get them in the mail.  I'm not promising though.  lol

I have more to sort and clean in this apartment but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  Even if it's a small pinprick of light, I'll take what I can get.  Hubby says he will help sort books and boxes too, his goal is to have it all cleaned up by Jan. 1st.  I think he's being a little too optimistic on that one.  lol But miracles do happen, I suppose. 

Hoping you are all doing well today.

I am furious.

So I've been making tamales for the past three hours or so. The steamer that I just bought is basically a big pot with a removable bottom that sits on a ledge right above the water. I stand the tamales upright in the steamer like I was told to do and let them start cooking. About an hour in I go to check on them. I notice some are sliding down. So I try and pick them up again, and the whole bottom collapses into the boiling water, splashes my arm, and renders my tamales inedible because they dropped into the water (the masa is basically melting because they're not even close to being done). Fifteen tamales and about an hour's work. Gone.

And my arm hurts now. Dammit. :P

Whoa, a mile and a half away?  :o  Good thing it wasn't in your immediate neighborhood!  And how fortunate no one has been reported to be injured or killed.

"The tanker's driver, Chad LaFrance, 30, of Dover, N.H., was cited for speeding, but the investigation was ongoing." (AP)

I had just read the news story before I returned here to inthe00s.

I heard some of this when I was listening to the radio at breakfast.  Thankfully no one was hurt though it's not much comfort if your home is gone.  :-\\

About 1 PM (PST), I have to get back to the grind of promotion.

As stated previously, the cards were purchased last night, so some of them will be sent off today.

Had to go to Teela's school, for a minute.
She had a small mishap, and it required some parental attention.
All has been resolved.

Anyway I'm going shopping today to search for inspiration and to get Dai something from the children and a birthday cake of some sort.  Also looking at getting some curtains for the house - there aren't any downstairs so once it gets dark the house gets very cold.

Yeah. I came in last night at 5:00, and she said "If Sylvia can't come in tonight, you have to work the overnight as well" Plus, I had a meeting from 10:00-1:00 the next morning. I said "Well, I only got about three hours of sleep the past two days, because I've been working days and overnights", and she didn't even offer to call anyone else. She didn't do any laundry, the garbage was literally overflowing onto the floor, and the dishes weren't done. Then she's all "I need you to shovel the driveway, sidewalk, and porch tonight, when you get the guys to sleep." That's all fine and dandy, but they could have at least shoveled the past two days, it wasn't touched at all!


The good thing is, Sylvia ended up coming in, so I got to go home. I'm going to that other place in Shippensburg today, to get an application. I really hope it doesn't take them long to call back.

What I'm getting at is.. doing all of that is fine, because It IS my job, and I get (under)paid for it. But.. no one else does ANYTHING during the day, they let things pile up for my shift. I try to do the same thing, but I just can't leave that many dishes in the sink, and I really can't let the garbage overflow like that. Everytime I come in for my shift, they're sitting on the couch, watching tv, barking orders at me. And that's what makes me upset.

Ok, here is the situation: My dad sends me a holiday gift (Hanukkah, Christmas, Solstice, whatever) which he sends every year. I do appreciate it. However, this year he sends it me via PayPal. I have mentioned a few hundred times how much I REALLY hate PayPal. He sends it my PayPal account that I haven't used in years because it is not "verified" and I refuse to give them a bank account #. So now, I have $$ in that account. I try to get PayPal the account # that Carlos & I have set up just for PayPal-but it they won't accept that because it is being used by another account. So, I tried to send the $$ to our other PayPal account. It won't do it without bank info. I try sending it back to Dad-again, it won't do it without bank info. So, I have to give PayPal a bank account info that I really don't want to do just to get this year's gift. And Dad is thinking that I am being unreasonable because I don't want to give PayPal this info. (Quote: "You and your brother. The rest of the family uses it with no trouble, as does most of the world.")

Have I mention how much I REALLY, REALLY HATE PayPal?

I just got an email from him: Oh dear. I didn't mean to cause you so many problems. Sorry


So, Am I being unreasonable? I just wish that he asked me BEFORE doing it that way.

Anyway, needed to vent-and yes, this doesn't help my headache any either.

Just said goodbye to my little brother, he helped me repair our backyard fence. It sure is good to have someone you know and trust and knows what the hell they're doing.  Took a nice long hot shower, made some tea, popped some Tylenol and am now giving my body a rest. I'm gonna be sore tomorrow.

not really. I sit at a desk on my ass all day, so fence construction is a bit more rigorous than what I'm used to.  thanks for the advice.  I can't recall the last time I took a bath  :o  I have an excellent Hot Tub on my patio that I haven't used in a year. I need to clean it up and fire that sucker up. that would be so nice right now.

Well I would not suggest doing it now. With the workout you put your muscles through, I would wait until day after tomorrow to do that. Just use a bathtub in you home. Trust me it will do wonders. When I do things that I am not usually use to that is what I do.

I am enjoying a mother's day off, but for the wrong reason. Rice and the boy went with some friends to the Museum of Science and Industry to check out the Star Wars exhibit. I was going to go as well, but I'm sorta ill, so I elected to stay at home and rest up. I was feeling okay enough to sweep our nasty floors, but now I'm exhausted, so I think I'll go park myself in front of the television and finish watching Gone With the Wind.

We were also supposed to go downtown tonight and check out the lights, but we're going to get freezing rain at some point, so I don't think that would set to well with me.

TSO is well worth the ticket price, not a bad price by todays standards, $50.50 per ticket. they have two parts to their show,
the first half is a narrative between songs, all Christmas oriented. The second half is kick a$$ music, most of which is classical
oriented but put to a heavy metal beat. Almost 3 hours in all, no intermission and pure energy. If you get the chance, I highly
reccomend you see them.

...oh yeah, cleaned house today and had friends over for Poker. At 5:30 we began the night with pizza, then started playing cards at 6pm and didn't finish until  about 1am. I got lucky and won it all tonight. woot! $82.50 and sadly I beat Diane in the final round, but she won $20, so that was cool. I won $30, $27.50, and $30. not a bad night for the house. since I did so well, I didn't ask our friends to chip in for pizza   ;D

The good things of this month include talking to my personal trainer Tamara at the gym a couple of times. On Tuesday, I showed her my holiday pictures that were taken in Majorca and she liked them a lot. When I was I was on the treadmill, I felt a tap on my shoulder and it was Tamara. I spoke to her for a bit befoe she had a 1:1 session with another member.

I was thinking of getting tickets to see them but don't know enough of their music to feel confident about enjoying it all.  They are playing a couple of dates here (Connecticut) sometime now but I heard them advertising ages ago on the local radio.

Do you think it would be suitable for my children (currently aged 9 and 5)?

Quite a busy weekend.  It snowed on Friday so we built a snowman on Saturday although it was "the wrong sort of snow" to do a decent job.  Saturday evening Dai and I went out to his works dinner.  It was a good night.  We had a nice dinner and there was a live band afterwards for dancing.  We were discussing the last time we went out dancing just as a couple and decided it might be when Dai was best man at a friends wedding in 1993!

Yesterday we went shopping for a new coat for James.  His suddenly seemed too small for him.  Of course he liked one of the more expensive ones!  Still it looks good and warm.  We also bought ELizabeth some waterproof gloves for the snowy weather.  The we queued for ages to eat in The Cheesecake Factory.

An ice storm came overnight - the driveway is like polished glass - so I'm stuck at home.  There is something happening in James class to day that I'd like to get to so I'm going to phone another mum who lives nearby to see if she is going.

I've been feeling kind of ill lately, but thought the fresh air might do me good, so Jason and I took a stroll down 53rd. We made it almost halfway to Cottage Grove (a road that runs north-south and is the western boundary for the Hyde Park neighborhood). On the way, I stopped into Border's for a bit so the boy could run around and look at books. I found a copy of "The 10th Kingdom" (don't know if anyone remembers that NBC miniseries) on DVD for cheap, and I really wanted to buy it. I have to wait until the end of the month though. Then we stopped into a Chinese restaurant so I could get us some lunch. They make a mean banana smoothie, lots of fruit, very little sugar, and some ice and water. It's delicious.

Now I'm just sitting here, finishing off my lunch.

I've been feeling kind of ill lately, but thought the fresh air might do me good, so Jason and I took a stroll down 53rd. We made it almost halfway to Cottage Grove (a road that runs north-south and is the western boundary for the Hyde Park neighborhood). On the way, I stopped into Border's for a bit so the boy could run around and look at books.

My in-laws have a copy of "The 10th Kingdom". That was a good mini-series!

As for me- I have to get on the beat, as the band has a "promotional" gig on Saturday.
I have been asked to put fliers up, so I need to actually create them!

Melissa just got home from her 1st Finals (Business Law)- she thinks she pulled at least a 'B'.

Today i am going to school in a moment to see the winter concert.  9.30 strikes me as an odd time of day to have it.  In the UK they would do one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

Thanks all. The weather is starting to get really nasty out there and I really don't want to be out on the roads tonight. Carlos has already called the doc's office to see if an alternative can be done-like a "conference" call since this will be a consultation with another doc. He was told to call back later.

You're right.  It is an important appointment, but not worth it if it puts both of you in jeopardy.  It is getting worse here.  Micah's school called me (I had called earlier) to tell me that all afterschool/evening activities were cancelled.  Now I don't have to worry about her driving after the basketball game tonight (esp. since it is going to get worse tonight).

Like I said, hopefully they will let us do it over the phone-since it is only a consultation. The receptionist said that she never heard of anyone doing it over the phone. It is not the ideal but much safer than being on the roads tonight.

Today was spent running between schools, first I drop of Megan and then I dropped off Hunter then I went back to Megan's school to do an art project, I finished just in time to run back to Hunter's school to watch his Christmas show, I put him in the car and went back to Megan's school to pick her up.  I'm worn out.

It wil be much easier when they're in the same school. 

Over the next few days I'll be doing more volunteer work at Megan's school.  It seems like I'm the only parent available.  I'm watching the class during a teacher's luncheon tomorrow, Thursday is the day I help some kids with reading, Friday we have a class trip to the Library (that should be interesting!) and on Monday I'm working at the "Santa Shop".  Somewhere in between all of this I need to wrap presents, take Megan to have her cast removed, clean out my car and pack for our trip to Florida.

It sounds then that Carlos most likely has an isolated and treatable form of cancer and now you guys have to decide whether he wants surgery, or surgery + chemo.  Most likely they'll ask you to consider some chemo, which really sucks...gotta start working on a better "cure" :P

That is odd.  Up here if they don't call it in the morning before school starts, they can't call it at all.  Too many kids would be going home and, if their parents are at work, they would be left on their own.  I don't know how your school system could allow it. They have never done something like that here, which is not to say that I may turn on the television and find out that has happened.

I worked an overnight, and now they're making me stay until God knows when, because the roads are apparently bad. I looked out, and they pretty much just look wet to me. I walked out, and tried to slip around.. nothing. She said "You probably won't be able to go home..", so I told her I had an appointment, and she couldn't keep me here all day long, plus another overnight tonight (Like they think they can do..).

Well, I'll tell you what. I predict the roads are going to be undriveable tonight, and I won't be able to work another overnight. Screw these people, and their long lists of crap to do, that no one else does but me.

That is odd.  Up here if they don't call it in the morning before school starts, they can't call it at all.  Too many kids would be going home and, if their parents are at work, they would be left on their own.  I don't know how your school system could allow it. They have never done something like that here, which is not to say that I may turn on the television and find out that has happened.


No, the e-mail was sent out before school started.  Apparently if the weather turns nasty during the day you are supposed to ring the board of ed special number to find out if they are closing the school early.

In the UK we listened to the radio whilst eating our breakfast praying they would mention our school!

Anyway it started snowing about 11.00 this morning and hasn't stopped yet.

Do you have a Christmas tree.  Some of them can be allergenic.  I have a fake on, that is a problem, too.  After being in the damp cellar all year it must have gotten some mold and has to be sprayed with vinegar put outside for airing out.

We just have to watch the news or check the website.  Sometimes we know before we go to bed, sometimes I find out when it is posted at the bottom of the TV screen before I wake Micah up.  They use the 4 main stations in the area plus 3 or 4 local radio stations.  If they close during the day, there is an arrangement between the schools and Ferris that FSU employees get notified via email (because so many have kids in the school systems).  It is also announced on the local radio station.

My nose is pierced, but you can't tell unless I have the ring or stud in it. The studs are a bit more inconspicuous than the ring (and prettier if it's just a tiny diamond), and they're pretty common nowadays. Rest assured, I bet Julie will get tired of it in a few years.

It was gross, it was the first time I've ever seen roaches in a restaurant (I've heard that even the fanciest places can have them). 

The school picked this place because it was the only restaurant that could feed 100 kids at one time (all of the 1st grade classes went.).

I was going to call yesterday but I didn't get home until after 4:30 and of course the office closes at 4:30, they are closed today but first thing Monday morning I'll make that call.

I heard that!

We got back from a quaint Christmas party up in Napa California, which is fondly and aptly named "Wine Country". ate all kinds of goodies, and I had this horrible little dog barking and nipping at me all night. The lil' f*cker hated me  ;D  and liked everybody else which was weird.  they decided to go Christmas caroling which I had told Diane I wasn't going to do and if that was on the agenda, she could count me out. She said they weren't going to carol, but they did anyways. I'm sure she fibbed to me just to get me to go  >:(  so I went out with them and they sang and I froze my ass off just so they could sing to their elderly neighbors.    nice attitude, huh?

It doesn't help that the weather here has gone from a record high 78* two days ago down to 36* and raining now. My sleep has been so screwed up the past few days.

I have 5 days left until the annual Christmas party at the college. I bought a new dress for the occasion back in May? But, because I quit smoking a bit over 2 months ago, I have gained so much weight that I can't fit into it.  :\'( :\'( :\'( There is no way I am going to lose that amount in 5 days. I doubt I will get a chance to hit the stores before then.

Well, I have back-up dress #1. Even though I wore that dress a few years ago, it is a classic little black dress that I can get away with wearing again. However, the same reason as the first dress, I do need to lose just a bit-I would say about 5 lbs or so. It is possible to lose that much in 5 days-of course that means fasting-and the question is, do I want to fast just to fit in a dress?  :-\\ 

Then there is back-up dress #2. I wore this dress about 4 years ago or so-which is possible that some people may remember it. It does FIT (it is spandex so the last time I wore it, it did FIT).

I know this sounds so stupid to worry about but I'm sure most people around here know that I live for this 1 night a year when I can dress up.

Here is last year's dress.

Backup #1 - nope, this is the holidays, it is against the law to torture yourself on holidays

Backup #2 - Oh stop it! Who cares if anyone remembers it? Anyway, you can always change the accessories to change the total look.

I know how it is when you don't go out often and want to look great, on the other hand you want to have a good time without worrying about "wardrobe malfunctions"  Where what fits, have a good time.  :)

So me and Diane both have tomorrow off so we can pick Julie up from her dorm so she can come home for winter break. She has her last final of the 1st semester in the morning. and then come home and do some present wrapping and mail out more cards. We may try to see a movie matinee before we pick up Jule's, or maybe just go and have a nice lunch somewhere.

I have 5 days left until the annual Christmas party at the college. I bought a new dress for the occasion back in May? But, because I quit smoking a bit over 2 months ago, I have gained so much weight that I can't fit into it.  :\'( :\'( :\'( There is no way I am going to lose that amount in 5 days. I doubt I will get a chance to hit the stores before then.

Well, I have back-up dress #1. Even though I wore that dress a few years ago, it is a classic little black dress that I can get away with wearing again. However, the same reason as the first dress, I do need to lose just a bit-I would say about 5 lbs or so. It is possible to lose that much in 5 days-of course that means fasting-and the question is, do I want to fast just to fit in a dress?  :-\\ 

Then there is back-up dress #2. I wore this dress about 4 years ago or so-which is possible that some people may remember it. It does FIT (it is spandex so the last time I wore it, it did FIT).

I know this sounds so stupid to worry about but I'm sure most people around here know that I live for this 1 night a year when I can dress up.

Here is last year's dress.

Yeah I was diagnosed a little over a year ago when I went into the hospital for emergency gallbladder removal.  Isn't it interesting that they can take body parts out of you and you are still ok?  lol

I've sometimes felt similar to that...especially when an unexpected error message pops up on the screen. Earlier today I couldn't get online; something must've been wrong with our connection. So I shut down the machine, disconnected the ethernet cable for about five seconds, then put it back in. An hour later I started up the computer again and the internet connection was just fine. Of course our homepage, the AOL homepage, takes forever to load. ::)

I'm in this job permanently, however she is not.  Long before I asked her out, she told me that she is only working this job temporarily while she looks for employment in the field of work she longs to be in.  The day she gets a better job, I am definately going to ask her out.  Up until then though, it's going to be very difficult to work with her, but I will do my best. 

She's just so beautiful that my knees buckle, and I get butterflies in my stomach everytime I see her.  I've never felt this way about a girl before, and honestly, I can picture spending the rest of my life with her

Carlos was also diagnosed as a diabetic about a year ago.  He doesn't have to take insulin but does take meds everyday. We are lucky enough to have a doc that will give him the meds (samples). He does have to buy his test strips-which are covered by his insurance-he just has to pay the co-pay.

Jason- It's a tough situation, but I have to agree with the others on this one.
As rough as it is not to think of her at work, it's probably for the best.
Perhaps you can reach a friendly compromise with her- Office parties, etc.

Just got off the phone with my brother.  He was practically in tears.  Things aren't exactly working out the way he had hoped and now he doesn't know what to do.  He was worried about not sending birthday & Christmas presents to Micah, but they are facing numerous shut offs.  I told him not to spend a dime on us, to focus on just doing what he needed to do to get them back on their feet.  I'm so worried about him.  I truly wish I had some money to send him, but I don't have any extra (still trying to do some creative accounting of my own so I can get my squeaking brakes fixed).   :\'(   :\'(  I thought he was doing so well and was so happy.  According to him, she just came to him with their mess this week (she wanted to be "in charge" of the finances and since it was technically her money, he agreed) so he is still trying to get his head around it.  I feel so terrible for him.   :(

Do you have her phone number?


No, but she's probably in the book lol


You're probably going to think about her for months.  I've been in your type of situation more than once.  I don't think there's really much you can do.


I'm already thinking about her non stop.  All I can do is hope for the best that one day her and I can date

I am keeping my chin up.  She said she doesn't date guys she works with, so on the day she gets another job, I am going to be right there ready to ask her out.  I don't think she'll say no for she'll get a free meal and a movie out of it.  I hope that we will end up hitting it off, but if not, then I don't think I will be sad for atleast I'll know that I had the chance to take a beautiful woman out on a date :)

I am feeling very sad and scared today :\'(

So there's this girl whom I work with that sits right behind me.  For nearly 3 months now, I've had a little crush on her, but fearing that it would get awkward in the workplace (and also that I am super shy), I never told her I liked her.  So yesterday, I finally got up the courgage to ask her out, but she doesn't date guys she works with for the same reason that I feared, so it was a polite no :(

I was a little heartbroken, moreso than I thought I would be because all along, I knew that what I had for her wasn't just a little crush, but a big crush.  So big that I haven't been able to stop thinking about her.  I just don't know what I am going to do :\'(


Bro, I talked to at least a dozen girls at the club tonight.. then I hooked up with one of them, left her place about 45 minutes ago and got back to my place about 15 minutes ago. It's the persistence of time dude.

awww...Jason, I've never heard you talk like this before...you must have fallen hard for this girl? Listen..I know how it feels to be love/awestruck with someone that you can't have. It's gonna be ok...and if it is meant to be...it will all work itself out. Chin up, Jaso! :)

I never usually share these kinds of feelings, but I just had to let it out because I was just so scared, I didn't know what to do.  Today at work she didn't really say much to me like she normally does, so I am starting to feel that maybe she feels a little uncomfortable about the situation I put her in, and it now scares me even more to know that I could lose her friendship :\'(

Though I still like her, I'd rather have her as a friend then to not have her at all

I was just going to say the same as Erin. Just keep acting as you always do and she will relax and things will go back to how they were. I had this same situation at my work when one of my collegues asked me out , I didn't fancy him at all and things were just kind of happening with Ian so also said no. Things were a little awkward for a while but now we get on fine.

Not trying to give you false hopes but now that you asked her it may be that you have put yourself in her mind so to speak.

As to the dating at work it's a difficult one. I have seen it work,two of my friends have been married 14 years now, and I have seen it fail which has usually resulted in one of the two persons concerned having to leave.

Oh yeah, but I did actually have a point - Jason, it's all about persistence, bounce from one to another.

You know that's it's totally almost impossible to meet "The right person for you." Think about it, there's only you and said individual in the world that are perfect, right. Well, 6.5 billion people, in a busy day.. you might see.. 1000 different people? Maybe more, but most of them you don't really 'see' they're just blurs passing by. So, to see all those people, you'll have to live for something like 18-20,000 years, which frankly.. isn't easy, so.. you just gotta go with it.

I had a somewhat similar experience happen earlier this year. There's a woman who works in the office at my job, and we flirted a few times and I wound up asking her out and we went on a couple dates, and things went OK. However, rumors started going around rather quickly (I swear, my work is almost as bad as high school when it comes to gossiping) and my instincts told me that this was a bad idea, so I ended it before things got too far and we still remained friends.

As far as your being attracted to this girl, and then working up the courage to ask her out only to get shot down, well, that's a major bummer. Still I have to give you props for at least having the guts to ask her out.

But yeah, having to go to work every day and see this girl has got to be really tough. You've been rejected and understandably you feel like sh*t. Just remember that these feelings are temporary and eventually they will pass. 

Also, you WILL have more opportunities with women. Don't let this one bad experience discourage you too badly. Keep trying, and eventually you will succeed.

Yummy Dim Sum. We finally found a place in Chinatown that is comparable to what you find in the Bay Area. Thing is, you have to get there before the crowds. :D

We went shopping for the last of the ingredients that I need for Christmas dinner. What a pain in the ass that was. I was hoping that because it was a weekday, no one would be about. HA! Some dumb b*tch in an SUV sped through the Food 4 Less parking lot, hitting a puddle, and almost doused me. I was hoping she was going to stop at the PetSmart so I could go rip her a new a$$hole, but she didn't.

Then we almost got broadsided by a taxi near the airport. He was gesturing and honking at us (God forbid, we stopped at a red light), so when he passed us by to turn right, I flipped him off.

Gotta love the Christmas season. :D

Yummy Dim Sum. We finally found a place in Chinatown that is comparable to what you find in the Bay Area. Thing is, you have to get there before the crowds. :D

We went shopping for the last of the ingredients that I need for Christmas dinner. What a pain in the ass that was. I was hoping that because it was a weekday, no one would be about. HA! Some dumb b*tch in an SUV sped through the Food 4 Less parking lot, hitting a puddle, and almost doused me. I was hoping she was going to stop at the PetSmart so I could go rip her a new a$$hole, but she didn't.

Then we almost got broadsided by a taxi near the airport. He was gesturing and honking at us (God forbid, we stopped at a red light), so when he passed us by to turn right, I flipped him off.

Gotta love the Christmas season. :D
I want more dim sum. maybe I'll try to find some to take home to the girls, I would score some major points for sure.

I have a very low tolerance for stupid drivers and it puts a damper on my Christmas spirit too, but those types of social interactions happen year round  for me.

My Kind of Man!  ;D

So....yesterday I got out early to finish off the shopping, but first I went to have coffee.  I was in line at Panera and there were a few, maybe five, of us waiting in line.  One person was taking and filling orders and on the register, and a few were standing yakking off to the side. The woman at the register was filling a large order of pastries for the person at the register, the rest of us were standing getting aggravated.  The guy behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said "block your ears"  I did and he let out one of those ear splitting whistles.  Everyone looked, of course, then he said to the yakkers, "do you think you could help her(pointing to the woman working the register), and us"  "oh yes" and "we are sorry" all around.  It was beautiful. 

That wasn't all.  Later, my last stop I was in Best Buy waiting in a long line.  They went through asking for people who were paying with debit/credit cards.  Seems they set up the registers to take either debit/credit or cash, not both.  Only two registers were taking cash and four debit credit, but it just happened that most of the people in line were paying cash.  I was surprised myself.  Anyway the cash line got longer.  The manager came out and said if anyone would like to pay credit/debit instead of cash there were more registers open for that.  Well, it looks like the beginning of a grassroots consumer movement because some guy asked him what was wrong with a good old American dollar in America, no one defected, and we demanded he open another register for cash(he did).  I tell you it made my holiday season  ;D

The party last night was great as usual. There didn't seem to be as many people this year (and they didn't have a band  :\'( ). The governor didn't show this year like he had in previous years. We saw a lot of friends there. And we ate and ate and ate. You don't think you eat too much because they have these little paper plates but lots of different kinds of food in EVERY room. So, you go around from room to room to room sampling all sorts of different foods. Carlos and I hung out around the shrimp and must have filled up those little small plates a few times with shrimp. (Carlos just said that he ate about as much shrimp as a whale would eat. lol) And of course we both a few strawberry daquaris. By the time we left, yeah, we ate A LOT!!!

I'll post the pics of our outfits in a bit.

When we got home, there was a message on the machine from my sister. We finally connected this morning and must have talked for about THREE HOURS!!!!  :o :o :o

Some of you may not know, but I got a job in accounting at the VA Hospital here in Boise.  I love the job, but it's keeping me very busy with the kids and all, but it's nice to be bringing in some money.  I have four days off so I though I'd drop in and see what everyone is up to.  I've haven't been doing much but working.  My mom died on Dec 10th, add that to Christmas and it makes for a very busy, exhausting time.  I'm still having a hard time with the realization that she isn't alive anymore, such a weird feeling.  Despite this I feel very happy...I have my husband, my two girls and my two sisters...and snow! :)

I usually have the "holiday blues". There have been many, many years in a row where I just couldn't get into the holiday spirit. Yeah, I went through the motions-putting up the tree, buying/wrapping presents, etc. but most of the time, when Christmas came around, I found myself alone. Just like last year, this year it will just be Carlos & I. Of course we will be going to my step-daughter's on the 27th to celebrate. But, we didn't get a tree or put up any decorations-well, I think we may put something up tonight just to take down in a week.  ;) 

Anyway, what I am trying to say, is that it is normal to have the Christmas blahs. And if you need to talk, you can always PM me.

I got off work early  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/beerchug.gif  & finished my Christmas shopping, stopped for groceries on the way home & just now had a nice appetizer.  Julie baked this incredible looking dessert for tonight, it's an Apple-Caramel-Cheesecake bars with strusel topping.  I am so proud and impre4ssed with her cooking and baking abilities. I told her she should consider culinary classes if they have them.

I usually have the "holiday blues". There have been many, many years in a row where I just couldn't get into the holiday spirit. Yeah, I went through the motions-putting up the tree, buying/wrapping presents, etc. but most of the time, when Christmas came around, I found myself alone. Just like last year, this year it will just be Carlos & I. Of course we will be going to my step-daughter's on the 27th to celebrate. But, we didn't get a tree or put up any decorations-well, I think we may put something up tonight just to take down in a week.  ;) 

Anyway, what I am trying to say, is that it is normal to have the Christmas blahs. And if you need to talk, you can always PM me.

thanks Cat..I really appreciate it. I'm having a pretty decent day today....so that's a good thing. :)

so we did the immediate family Christmas Eve dinner at my bro-inlaws house which is only 2 blocks away. Ate some delicious food, and then I endured the Christmas present/gift time for the kids and the grandparents. Opening gifts tonight were Julie and here 5 cousins, Diane's mom & dad, and her aunt and older cousin. The suffering part is that each one has about 4-6 gifts and they always have one person at a time open 1 gift, starting with the youngest until they have opened them all and sometimes the older folk want to describe how they will use the gift and me with my little patience am feeling like this http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0S020nZxHBHRj8B.C2jzbkF/SIG=12dkkfe4n/EXP=1198659161/**http%3A//www.nickaddeoenterprises.com/rodneydangerfield.jpg

other than that, it was nice and tomorrow is the big gathering of the clan.

Have finished playing "Santa".

Every year, I have "helped Santa write a quick note" to Teela.
He also leaves a different hint as to how he's "visited" our home.

This year, he's leaving "bootprints". If I can get a pic, I'll post it.

She is so staunch in her belief of Christmas.
She knows about why Christians celebrate it, and yet is also understanding of others' "sacred" or "holy" days.
Example- My band's guitarist is Jewish, and therefore doesn't celebrate Christmas.
Therefore, Teela wished him a Happy Chanukah.

She also attends school with many Hmong children.
Therefore, she also understands about "Gung Hay Fat Choy".
Which I feel is a most marvellous thing.

Well, "Santa" needs to get some shut-eye....Morning comes awful early!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I'ts been a long day, but a fun day from start to finish. woke up, made coffee, then I threw a log in the fireplace, got a fire going & then got to cooking hash browns, biscuits & gravy & sausage, scrambled eggs & fresh fruit, my favorites; blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. Julie got up around 11am. We ate & then opened presents while watching A Charlie Brown Christmas. After that we just rested & relaxed until it was time for the big gathering at 530. musta been at least 50-60 family members and friends there and the food was fantastic and I finally got me 2 servings of Aunt Mary's famous yams, and they were good. The roast beef was outta this world, it was super good. now I'm wore out, I have to work tomorrow and not feeling like posting. I need me some couch time with a cup of hot tea and then bedtime.

It was fun...but really only because I made it that way. This year there were only 3 of us.  tom, my step father, just lost his ex wife and mother...and buried his only son end of november in the late 80's...so there was that anniversary.  he's not really in a celebratory mood.  typically my mom does enough to keep every one in the spirit and happy...
this time it was my job and it was difficult.  We went to Brendan's mother's house and there was a great turkey dinner, but the family declined to partake in gift trading...they all want to save money for trips and stuff.
so we came home and watched TV...

I enjoyed my little xmas, i just hope everyone else did. i can't tell.  I really did my best to get really great, personalized gifts for people and it really  made a difference.  It was worth it.

Now...I have only 2 days of work this week- but to make up for time we were closed we'll be there 2 12 hour days.
it never ends!!!  Glad my flu is gone!

That's the news..hpe your holidays were happy!!!

So I put my grinch head away for a while and made sure everyone had a good day for the most part.

Did Christmas with family and friends, probably about 35 people, I did a great job with the gifts I picked up, I tried to find stuff that you can't get in the UK and I think that was appreciated.

I didn't ask for any gifts or anything, I just said if anybody wanted to contribute to the "New Furniture Fund" they could. (I need to spend probably a couple thousand on furniture because mine is just awful.)

Huge Christmas dinner! I left most of it to the real cooks but I made Christmas chille in the evening, with festive red and green peppers.

Oh, did I mention I started drinking at 8:30 in the morning and by the time everything was done I was so far gone.  ;D

Best present - A two and a half pint glass, for todays alcohol dependant businessman on the go.

I think I fixed the link now, I got a little overzealous with the address (I apparently cut and pasted it twice into the url code). 

It was nice, the Chinese food on Christmas.  No christmas carols by the waitstaff, but instead the Americanized young 20ish year old, showed us a video that he is going to put up on youtube of the Chinese cook doing Benihana tricks with the sharp knives.  :o  He asked "What should I name it so that it gets lots of hits?"  I didn't want to be insulting but it seems that the only things that get millions of hits are rude stuff, so I was gonna suggest something awful like Chinese with knives...  But I did not want to be offensive.  Hubby suggested the Steel chef.  I guess we'll see if he actually posts it.

Food was really good, and I had plenty leftover for snack last night and finished it up this afternoon.

Back to the grind, I'm afraid.

Yesterday was quite nice-

Teela woke everyone up. We got up- with no coffee- and opened presents and cards.
It was nice, and I enjoyed everything I got. I think we all did. Teela exclaimed that each present was "just what she always hoped for".

After, went to my oldest sister-in-law's house, and had the family exchange there.
Got a gift card that I have to register online.

Dinner was held at an old friend of my mother's, in Sacramento.
He is quite the jovial Italian, when he loosens up.
I got embarrassed, when I bled on my new dress shirt, and when he offered another shirt, I bled on THAT one. (Got a nick in my finger, somehow)
However, dinner was good. He is rather knowledgable on wines and cognac.
We had fun there.

All-in-all, a good Christmas. I hope yours was as enjoyable.

Bird top left - Are those seeds in your pocket or is it that your nose is blue?
Bird bottom right - What's a pocket?

I'm the guy behind the first bull attempting to hand off baton to that big brown fellow there with the horns.

Things didn't turn out as originally planned. We went up to my step-daughter's house in Burlington (about an hour and half-two hour drive depending on traffic/weather conditions, etc.) My step-daughter had a shower to go to so we figured my step-son and my youngest step-daughter would be there. We got to her house about the time we said we would and it was locked up tighter than a drum. So we waited a few minutes and then decided to go to dinner. We had a great dinner and then went back to the house-still locked up. We were trying to figure out what was going on. We thought that my step-son maybe working (teaching dance), we went to the dance studio-THAT was also locked up. So we went back to the house. No one was still there. Carlos was very frustrated by this time and said, that was it, we were going home. He left our granddaughter's Christmas gift right by the front door and left. We got about a half hour down the road and thought maybe he needed to go shopping or something, so we turned around and went back. Again, no one was there. I asked Carlos if we were supposed to meet them somewhere. He said no and at that point, we decided to just head home. We weren't home for about 10 minutes when the phone rang and it was my youngest step-daughter saying, "You are STILL home??" We explained that we just got home and yes, we WERE supposed to meet them at a restaurant in Burlington (where my step-son works). He sent us an e-mail a few days ago. We did get it but it just didn't register. The next morning (yesterday) we drove back up there-this time everyone was at the house-complete with 2 new people. It seems that my step-son and youngest step-daughter both have a new significant other.

From that point on-the day was great. We opened gifts, went for a walk on a golf course in the snow (which was coming down quite hard), and had a GREAT meal-and best part was the fact that I didn't have to clean up afterward.  ;D ;D We stayed a bit after eating until we got back on the road again. The snow had been coming down for hours and it was a long haul back home. We thought about staying overnight but Carlos had an appointment this morning and he didn't have his meds. We took our time getting home and got home safe & sound.

BTW, Have I ever mentioned that I really have the greatest step-kids?

Left the lake this morning (didn't want to, but no choice).  Got home at 11:30, left at 12:30 to go to Grand Rapids.  The forecast was for heavy snow--they weren't kidding.  Took almost an hour to get to neurologist appt (about right for the location).  It went fine.  She thinks everything is normal (oh, really) but wants to do an EMG on the 21st of Jan.  Great  :( (not a pleasant test).  It took an hour and 20 mins to get home (expressway was pretty much one lane), so I went right down and got my injection.  Got home about 4:30.  Am slowly getting things organized.  Will take the shovel and put the decorations back in the storage unit tomorrow.  I figure I can get down to business on the apt, etc. this weekend then relax for the rest of my break (I go back the 3rd).

**********NEW INJURY UPDATE!*********

So I was sweeping up after having some people over last night, the broom split in the middle and one end sort of shattered (plastic broom) and went straight in to my wrist. There was blood spurting everywhere and it took ages to stop it bleeding. As per usual, I just fixed it in the kitchen, bandaged it until the bleeding slowed, then used some hydrogen peroxide, gauze pad, loads of athletic tape, job done. Still, it bled through that within about 3 minutes so I stuck a couple more pads on and it seems to have calmed down. It dosen't hurt all that much and there's no more blood coming through, plus, I haven't passed out or anything, so it can't be that bad.
I will however take the badages off in a few hours and check it, last time I had a really deep cut, it was on my foot when I cut my toe off, I left it for about 3 days and it started to rot, like trench foot, all the flesh went black, so I'm not keen to repeat that.

Did you never hear about when I cut me toe off.

Long story short - I cut my toe off, wrapped it up myself, didn't see anybody about it. It rotted, the flesh on my foot started to rot, the smell became awful, I took the bandage off, caught the bus to the hospital and had the guy cut a load of dead flesh off my foot.. it felt weird for a few days then I was back to normal.

Hmm.

Anytime you bleed profusely for that long of a period of time it's a good idea to go to the hospital or call the EMTs.  Eek.

And if you lose a limb, at least get your lighter and cauterize the wound if you're not gonna sew the toe back on yourself :P

Wow Davey sure knows how to party!  :o  Seriously though, I'm with everyone else, you should go have it checked out.  I think I'm getting sick just reading about your injuries.  8-P  I'm such a wuss.

We've been sick this whole past week with something we caught while visiting the kinfolk back home.  Some days are better then others healthwise, but nothing nearly as dramatic as Davey!  Yilkes.

I didn't manage to get my tree up this year, so I guess I don't have to get it down, so yay for small miracles.  We are sorting thru boxes of papers and stuff still, I swear that stuff mates with each other and reproduces while I'm not looking.  I think we're going to take our car in to get looked at (once again) on Wednesday after payday.  The starter is starting to act a little funny just like it was this time last year, but we thought it was the battery not holding a charge (last year) so anyways, we know it's not the battery for sure this year.  Always something, you know?  On the good side, my cat is being especially affectionate lately, I don't know if she's been lonely since we traveled last weekend, or just mellowing out for a change.  It's been nice to cuddle up to the kitty with her healing powers of the purr.  lol

Growing up, we lived a block from the high school (you could see it from the end of the driveway!).  I went to the high school dances and my dad would either send my mom or brother to "escort" me that block.  My brother, bless his heart, stayed back a little because he hated it as much as I did.  My mom did what she could and like she said "It could be worse, it could be your father walking into the dance looking for you".  I love my dad very much, but yeah, HS was hard enough without something like that!  :)  Didn't have to worry about parties as I didn't go to any in HS and I went to college 2 hours away from home.  My friend Lisa & I would get together whenever our breaks coincided, but she always did the driving. 

Oh, I forgot a warranty on the camera wasn't an option so I stopped looking for that.  Found the others, now they are where they belong (my mom has the one for the printer as I forgot to bring it home; she'll keep it in a safe place).

Just posted "a parody entitled "Screams of Our Italian-ness We Rant" on amiright.com.  It's the Billy Joel OS of "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant".  Not a spaghetti Western - more like a Spaghetti Eastern.

I listened to some music on the radio; KLOS 95.5 (a station specializing in classic rock in Los Angeles) was playing its songs alphabetically by title, so I listened to some of that while I looked at some Triple-A maps that I got for Christmas.

**********NEW INJURY UPDATE!*********

So I was sweeping up after having some people over last night, the broom split in the middle and one end sort of shattered (plastic broom) and went straight in to my wrist. There was blood spurting everywhere and it took ages to stop it bleeding. As per usual, I just fixed it in the kitchen, bandaged it until the bleeding slowed, then used some hydrogen peroxide, gauze pad, loads of athletic tape, job done. Still, it bled through that within about 3 minutes so I stuck a couple more pads on and it seems to have calmed down. It dosen't hurt all that much and there's no more blood coming through, plus, I haven't passed out or anything, so it can't be that bad.
I will however take the badages off in a few hours and check it, last time I had a really deep cut, it was on my foot when I cut my toe off, I left it for about 3 days and it started to rot, like trench foot, all the flesh went black, so I'm not keen to repeat that.



Why'd the broom split?  ???

We are going to our financial adviser/friend's house for a mega party they put on every year. This will be our second year. He & his wife are the nicest people you can ever meet. I graduated from college with his wife and we had a couple of classes together. He used to be a colleague of Carlos so we go back many years. (Carlos knew him first and I knew her first). 


Oh yeah:

CONGRATS JESS & RICE

Today I finished sorting out all my clothes and shoes. This morning  I took two huge sacks of clothes to a charity shop and then came home and took photo's of the stuff I'm going to try selling on Ebay. I have one more bag of stuff to take to charity next week.
Himself's best friend was meant to be coming to stay tonight but he cancelled at lunchtime so it's just the two of us and some pizza.

Thanks everyone! It's hard to believe I've already been married for three years. :) But we are living proof that online relationships can work out, no matter the crazy circumstances.

I guess we should thank ChuckyG too for running this place. Without it, Rice and I would have never met, which probably would have made my mother in law happy. ;D

We saw 4 sets of friends altogether.  Each family has a child Elizabeth's age (or thereabouts) and a child James's age.  Three families are friends from school (or even from nursery).  I posted a longish spiel in the January thread about everything.
