Not that it’s a real milestone, but if you count my old blog (and I do, since I only changed addresses because the shitstuffers in my AP class were making nasty comments that I had to edit out…) but today marks my 250’th post. I’m sure there’s a grammar nazi out there who will point… Read More

I saw the yarn harlot’s post yesterday (and, might I add, DAMN apple for hiding the darned link key) and it was about how she just powers on through the end of a book or a project and gets it done. An admirable way of approaching things–I love her for it. (That and for her… Read More

Okay–really, I have nothing to post about today. I told the folks at work about the interview and (with the exception of the Lady in Red who has my eternal adoration) they were so excited that they… Said not a blessed thing. You know, it’s a good thing I get my strokes elsewhere, because these… Read More

Lookit Lookit Lookit!

Okay–I’ll admit it–I’m really excited about this. Floyd, the guy who gave the interview gave me a VERY helpful list of things to look for while I’m proofreading…I mean, I’m so grateful to him, I may have to knit him something. And I’d like to seriously thank my buddy at work who took that picture… Read More

Several questions…

on August 24, 2007

I NEVER EVER want answered… * Why was it necessary this morning for the world to stop spinning on it’s axis, annihilate itself and disintegrate into powder when I took a bite of my son’s ‘apple’ (it was a nectarine) after he said he didn’t want it? * How many times have my children exposed… Read More

So, we’re taking the Cave Troll to the State Fair today after work–he has to tumble across mats with a puzzled look on his face proving, once and for all, that kids think the world is random and adults have done nothing to change their minds. His and Chicken’s dance/gym teacher get the kids into… Read More

Okay… today’s lesson is vocabulary. You give me the word (stop talking to her), the part of speech (please sit down), the synonym (spit out that gum), and the sentence (eyes front). I will help by giving (did I say sit down?) examples: incipient: adj. new or beginning (nascent)Yes, nascent is a real word…do you… Read More

First of all, I got this quiz from Tama, our beloved Mother of Chaos, and thought I’d share: This Is My Life, Rated Life: 7.7 Mind: 6.6 Body: 5.5 Spirit: 7.6 Friends/Family: 8 Love: 9.1 Finance: 8.5 Take the Rate My Life Quiz Apparently my ‘Love’ score was EMBARRASSINGLY high…they asked for my advice in… Read More

THanks for the pep-talk, everybody–seriously, you all know I couldn’t do it w/out you!!! But yesterday’s post was a little self-indulgent, so I’m going to ponder the vagaries of traffic for a moment… Tuesday–Left the house at 7:25, encountered a couple of slow downs and got to work at 8:20. This was a little later… Read More

It’s funny, how something stupid can prey on your mind… School’s going okay–I guess I’ve got the same number of shitheads, I’m just more pissed off about jumping on them. I’ve already written my first referral, and I followed the bullshit train and made parent contact, and I have a tardy log started, and really,… Read More
