I just registered for my last ever semester of college!

Well... not ever. I'll probably come back for a master's in a few years.

I just registered for my last-for-a-while semester of college! Woo!

I've got my first freelance translation assignment since changing my employment from full-time to part-time plus freelance ...:jig:
So if I seem to be taking an unhealthy interest in roads construction over the next few days, you'll know why ;)

Now, better start playing him Judy Garland records, so at least you'll still get to go clothes shopping with him in 20 years time!

Seriously, I'm very glad all is well x

Actually it's quite funny you should say that. When we left the doctors office, I was grumbling to Dazza about another boy in the house and then I said, "but you never know. He might be gay. That's almost as good as a girl."

Last week I put new tires on my motorcycle and just came back from a ride.

Nothing fell off.

It's 18F, with 30 mph wind gusts. My hands are numb.

Maybe something did fall off.

We made a bid on a third house. :fingerx:

@Ail: glad to hear all is well. But please tell us you'll love your son even if he isn't gay. :D

lol...I remember the part in Heathers at the jock boy's funeral. His dad says "I love my dead gay son." What a great dark comedy.

Good luck on house number 3, Pie. Isn't three a charm?

Only if you believe in charma.

I do think this one might work out, as the sellers seem motivated. And we got a wee nibble on the one we're selling in NJ. Everything seems to happen all at once.

Shawnee123 11-06-2008 12:42 PM

Everything happens for a reason. KIDDING, I KID! :bolt:

Hope it all works out, Pie.

This one will be made of brick, right? So the big bad wolf [no relation to our wolf] can't blow it down with a-huff and a-puff.

The gym sponsored a health fair, so my workout friend and I returned and got stuck for cholesterol and blood sugar. Mine was good! And the bloodmobile was there so I gave 'em a pint*.

*Probably the fastest weight loss I've had by going to the gym ;)

The dog is home!!! (Posted about her missing in the "upset" thread) Someone found her off wandering, saw the name of the vet she goes to on her rabies tag, and took her to said vet's office. The vet called HM's ex-wife, the ex-wife called HM, and HM called me. So I went and picked her up. She DID have to go to work with me, but fortunately the manager was nice and let me keep her in a grooming kennel so she wouldn't have to stay in my car for five hours. She's now pressed against my leg getting petted and being told Daddy will be home tomorrow and she's in BIG trouble!!

Pie 11-08-2008 10:12 AM

:jig: So happy for you, Treas. It is devastating when a pet goes missing.

Treasenuak 11-08-2008 11:17 AM

Thank you, Pie! She managed to avoid picking a fight with a coyote while she was gone, so that's even BETTER news lol!

Sundae 11-08-2008 02:29 PM

Congrats Trea - I personally know how it feels to have a beloved pet go missing. But mine didn't come back.

Remind HM to change the details at the vet's when he gets back.

I'm happy because I've found Harry Hill's TV Burp on youtube. It's about the only tv programme I miss on a weekly basis, and I was annoyed to find it wasn't on ITV catch-up. But in fact it's far better being on youtube because as Dana mentioned on another thread, ITV catch-up is far worse quality!

I have about 3 weeks worth to watch now - a veritable Burp feast.
