Infi's back, Sarge is on the mend, or at least on the track to it, Sam is making progress in the job hunt, Hebe is turning into a fish, things are good.

Now if Wolf and Toad could just land something lucrative...

Wolf and toad? maybe featuring roles in one of Aesops Fables?

Don't forget the minifobs on the mend

Knew this earlier, but forgot to tell you's.

Going to the Family Fun Day on Saturday. It's in a local park, arranged by a coalition of local churches and the council (AVDC) I have no issue going to a church sponsored event. I work in a faith-based school. Jebus is okay with paying my wages, he can deal with me watching kids on a bouncy castle.

I had already arranged to go with Tennant's Mum (and Tennant).
I sent Tiger a postcard back in July, and followed it up with a handwritten card last week - including a recipe I thought his Mum might like, and of course an invite for Saturday.

Tiger-mum called me today to say yes, yes, yes. And I could hear Tiger in the background, wanting to speak to me.
Being an autistic child (and five years old) he said his set piece all in one breath - thank you for my card I look forward to seeing you at school and on Saturday thank you goodbye. But I was happy that he wanted to speak to a disembodied me.

Tiger-mum is seeing Tennant-mum tomorrow - the birthday party of a child who will be in my class next year - and will confirm arrangements.

It could be that something has come up and/ or she can't make it.
But at the very least (and it's not the least at all) I will see Tiger.

I'm so happy I can't tell you.

I'm happy because the roofers are here, the roofers are here! I am FINALLY getting a whole new roof!!

Sounds like roofer madness.

For me, I'm going to be Infinite Monkey Unplugged for a while this weekend. My bro and sis-in-law bought some land in Hocking Hills (beautiful part of OH...not the flat crap like around here) and I'm going to drive down tomorrow and spend the night.

Unless you climb a hill, there is no cell reception. There is, however, a really nice cabin/house, A/C (gonna be a scorcher this weekend), my sis-in-law's cooking, clear night skies where you can see forever, many critters, and good company. Oh, and their chocolate lab who I luvz.

The things that WON'T be there: students yelling at me. Traffic. The same four walls. My anxiety.

Sounds like fun!

infinite monkey 09-02-2011 08:12 AM

I think so. :)

I just had to add, he was giving me directions over the phone, and the last part was "turn left at the pile of rocks."

Now THOSE are some directions I can live with! :lol:

I'm off work all next week ( official holiday here thursday )


It's my 11th Wedding Anniversary Tuesday !! :) :) :)

Sundae 09-02-2011 09:25 AM

You go girl - have a wonderful time.
Sounds like just what you need.

Re directions...

Another pleasant day in the countryside
Has ended up in tears on a stormy night
'Cause you can't follow my directions home
But don't stop now

God knows where the satellite's taking us
I can't tell what's right in front of us
But I hang on every word
And don't stop now
No, don't stop now
You give me something I can write about

You get fooled by the lightning every time
See the after-image of my outline
And you turn the wrong way 'round
Well, don't stop now
No, don't stop now
You give me something I can write about
You give me something I can cry about

In a church house ten miles out of town
Is the devil gonna track me down?
And travel through a tunnel in the trees
Just remember that's how you get to me

There's no number on the house
The birds are heading south
Sometimes you have to turn
The wrong way 'round
Sometimes you get too close to nowhere now

This is helpful in the silence
I wait with a blank piece of paper on the top of my head
And all I want is something I can write about
All I want is something I can cry about

Bananas - just as good as I remember.

Sundae 09-06-2011 12:38 PM

Sometimes I just feel valued by Dwellars.
I don't make a big deal because it would sound like fishing for further compliments.

But in this last week I've had some people who I really like and admire being very kind.
And that makes me so happy.

Kind of what?
