    I totally forgot that today was Mr. Thing's birthday. T-O-T-A-L-L-Y! He wasn't too upset, but I am. I've never forgotten his birthday before.

    I just found out that one of my best friends left her husband of 25 years and her four kids (3 in college, 1 is 14 years old) and moved across the US to a town in the middle of nowhere. She's got a boyfriend who's a Brit, and she's working at a burger shop to try to make money to move there to be with him.

    You'd have to know her to know how utterly shocking this is! I've known her for over 30 years, and she's never done anything remotely like this in her life!

    I guess it was about time. Her soon-to-be ex-husband was a total jerk, anyway.

    re: the latest Cheesebugged newsletter, ha ha hee hee. I love the Norwegian write-up at the top!

    Vennligst legg pengene i kofferten. (Please place the money in the suitcase.)

    He might have said:

    "Is that the money in that plain paper bag? Please place said bag in the suitcase, thank you."

    Oh come on...please...what do you have to lose? I mean Cad, er...yes, you could adopt a lovely kitten, when I find the USB I upload the photos. They're so cute.

    WTF? How could my ex-best friend compare me to his girlfriend-- who scammed him out of all his money, aborted his child, despite his objections, and wasn't too sneaky about any of it (it was SO obvious she didn't love him)...

    WTF?

    "He locals". Heh-heh. How appropriate.

    Pray for my soul. I sent a complaint letter to my church over some issues with the pastor and youth leaders hushing up an incident that really didn't need hushing up. But now I've caught several of them in lies, and I want to know what's going on. So I sent a letter detailing my questions. They haven't responded yet. I may be looking for a new church by next Sunday!

    So.

    We received a letter from our city saying that extra garbage bins were going to cost $6/month instead of $1.60/month, and I was on the record as having an extra bin. I sent a letter and completed an e-mail form stating that I have lived here 22 years and have one and only one bin and they should not be billing me for 2 at all. I checked my bill and they have NOT been billing me for two. So begins the case of the Phantom Bin.

    A woman called from the City stating that they would be happy to pick up my second bin and could I please put it out at the end of the driveway. I told her, voice to voice, that I only had one bin and yada, yada - you get the picture. A man just arrived at my front door looking to pick up the second garbage bin. He was so nice, he said he tried to find it, but could only see one.

    Who wants to bet that they start charging me for an extra bin, AND they back-date the charges for 22 years!

    Government - yikes!!!

    Miss Thing is home sick with a cold. :sad::tongue:

    BUT--we got her state exam results, and she ROCKED! Out of a possible 400 points in each of four subjects, she got 400 on reading, 400 on writing, 395 on science, and 333 math. WOO-HOO! Those scores put her way ahead of the school and state averages. I was a bit surprised that the math was lower--she's really good.

    That's incredible!! congrats Mrs Thing!!

    Well, that was interesting. It goes on quite a way. I guess eventually you exceed the character limit, but I never got there, and I have more important things to do that to sit here with my index finger on the q key waiting to see how long it takes to make the scroll bar disappear.

    This "storm" wasn't much more than about a 15 minute downpour and some intermittent light rain, though it was windy enough this morning to bring down a small branch about 1" in diameter.

    This is only slightly sequitur so I won't "time out".

    I once filled in a job application with one of those personality tests. You know, the ones where you "do you feel this way or that way based on this situation".

    Well, the whole thing was worded so ambiguously (or I was having a bad day) that as I handed in the sheet upon completion I came to the conclusion that I answered every question exactly the opposite from what I meant.

    Needless to say I didn't get the job. I only wish as I was walking out I'd realized this and maybe fluttered an eyelid or gestured a tic in my right shoulder or something, just to throw them off!! They might have been extra nice (scared) and given me a free coffee, a mug with a company logo, or something.
