    No no no. You're looking at this all wrong. You don't jump out a window. You THROW THEM out the window. You solve the problem, with no wear and tear on your own fabulosity.

    Pput those gah emoticons where the walk so they can slip on them and fall. It will be their own fault for being oblivious to frustration.

    yessum. Just have to move once more, but I'll have a car for that, which makes things easier. And I only have to be gone by six in the morning. Much better. And I'll have someone to help with the four hour drive.

    3.5 hours from the nearest major city. There's a biggish border town nearby, but they don't have an airport. It's not too bad, I'm used to the travel. Just not at 1 in the morning.

    I'm going to go take some drugs now.
    I hope you get better soon. There's nothing worse than feeling sick. And I hate twilight. Read the first book at 15, and couldn't stand it. I mean, come on. Stalking does not in anyway equal soul mates. Neither does any of the other creepy stuff in that book.

    Good luck with the editing. And what is shame about? I haven't been near a movie theatre in a while, thus no preview watching.

    Politicking are you? Well, if so, in all honesty he probably should have been prepared. Don't feel too bad about it. I'm sure you were polite about it.

    I like your outlook. Sounds like a good way to go.

    Junely has a point. After all, you did say coworker was flighty, but have you tested that?

    Do you guys ever find yourself writing a chapter at least three times before you get it right? It seems to be emerging as a pattern.

    Oh! With any luck, Project Save The Orchids will be coming to a close to tomorrow morning. The cord for the heater is in and they'll be here between 8:30 and noon to install.

    Of course, since I have to be presentable by 8:30, they'll come at 11:45...

    You getting a kickback every time someone uses that one?

    Because you're pimping it awfully hard.

    “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat. "We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
    "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
