The most epic moment was finding a huge rat on my kitchen counter trying to open the covered dish I'd left out to cool. Insert scream. Thank goodness for boyfriend.

Then there was the neighborhood cat that decided to check out the house. Chased him out with a broom.

Another time, I was doing the dishes and Fred & Ethel came in all happy and tail wagging. Talked to them and asked them what they were excited about. They had happy little faces but something wasn't quite right....

Called in David (ex just doesn't sound right now) and asked him to figure out what was wrong. He just looked at me blankly. I told him to count the noses. Yep, we had an extra dog. Alfie from next door had dug under the fence and come for a visit.

Next house, no dog/cat doors. None since.



Our worst episode was when the cat brought in a mouse, dropped it, and said mouse promptly ran up inside an upholstered chair. Didn't think we were ever going to get it out.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

dontwantaname wrote:Had woot bad dreams last night.

Hubby was just in St Louis for a day.

Dreamed that I was invited to a woot formal party.
I didn't remember when it was.
Hubby and I were in a restaurant and I said, how formal would a woot formal be? I bet we can wear tee shirts.
For some reason I was wearing a nice dress at the time. I never get dressed up to go out to eat.
Then a woman comes over to me. For some reason I recognize her as I think Dave's wife, who now works for shirt.woot. Professor hot pants?
She is drunk (because I know she worked at the bar they all hung out at in St Louis...not that I think she is a drunk. Was it the Royal? something like that) and she is telling me, No, you can't wear tee shirts, this is formal, you need a really nice dress or gown. Nicer than what you have on now.

So now I don't know when it is and I have nothing to wear. Plus hubby never wants to go to parties.

Somehow the hotel closet had all our clothes from home. But it was too messy to walk into.
(This idea came from son's closet where he decided he has to keep his guitars and keyboard because the basement is too damp or cold or something like that. So with 4 guitar cases and the keyboard case and stand, you can see the clothes, but you can't get to them.)

I see gowns back there, so I try to reach them. Most were daughters so way too small .
I find one that is my size, but there is no room to try it on and see the mirror. It might need to be ironed, but I can't try it on.


At this point in the dream I switch scenes and somehow I meet Mavyn. Who I also recognize. Why Mavyn? Damn if I know.

Do I ask her what she is doing in St Louis, nope. I ask her if she ever weaseled out of a party because she couldn't find a dress.
She says no, she loves parties and would never try to get out of one.

So now I'm thinking when the hell is this party? I better find no1 and ask if he remembers anything posted about it.

Then I decided it would just be easier to wake up and end the torture.
So I did.


Gee, that was a lot of anxiety just because I lost the page that would tell my how I lost out on crap this time. I didn't close any page, I have no clue where it went .



Which killed the thread for an entire day.

No, I've eaten enough crap today.

Although if you find a good piece, I might have some.




We were in New Orleans for a wedding. The entire family....like 20 people .... were looking for a place to eat in the French Quarter. It was late, on a week night and we found one place still open.
A waiter, who I sware looked just like Johathan Winters, took our orders.
They didn't have anything. It was all off the menu, even stuff on the special board that was written in chalk and could easily be erased.

At the end of a awful meal
(waiter, this bread is cold, can you heat it up?
No, when we do people complain it is hard)
my daughter got a piece of cheesecake.
She said "This is the worst cheesecake I ever ate.
We then passed it around the table and all 20 people agreed that it was the WORST cheesecake we ever tasted!

So don't buy it there.


Honestly, this was 14 years ago. If it was a good restaurant, we never would remember it. But we all remember that place!

Well, I have celiac disease anyway, so I have to make my own cheesecake when I want it, anyway.

Good morning everyone from rainy Seattle. The Seattle Times clock said 48 degrees, but I think it's stuck on optimism and lies. (Did not feel anywhere near that.)



Today we were a gorgeous 83 degrees with dew points around 40, so it really couldn't have felt better. It was a perfect day to hit our favorite local frozen custard shop for flavor-of-the-day mint chocolate chip!

You're welcome!

Thanks!

She did say that she didn't want me to go anywhere, but understood me wanting a raise. I'm still under the impression that they will open a job for me, but no one is really allowed or willing to actually come out and say that. They have a few months before it really matters.

So if you don't get a raise there, you might transfer to another place or change companies altogether?

I'm a consultant, and the whole organization is changing how they're doing Level 2 support. So, current contract is through 2012 with a one year extension. Possibly will have something ongoing here for the apps I support, or end up going elsewhere. Change, either way.

If it doesn't happen, I'll be applying to other jobs in the IRS. I'll basically be switching projects. I could probably make more money outside of the gov'ment, but lose the stability and working hours.
