Just thought I'd update you on my chillies.
Going to ask Dad if I can "borrow" a pot and some soil over the weekend.

Well, maybe.

What I was getting at was Bri getting it from Jesus, and I mentioned Pike.

Pike was played by Jeffery Hunter, who played Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar".

Soccer again....we are now 2 wins from 3 games...woo hoo.

Tman was best on ground today, 3 goals from him and he was everywhere when needed. We had no interchange today, so the little blighters were plum-tuckered at the end, but they just get better and better....and I guess I do too as coach.

Its just really a fun experience :D

Im also collating the results from all our teams and writing them up for the sports section of the paper. Team Captain/Coach/Journo ...weird.

DanaC 05-16-2009 04:42 AM

In that case....no I don;t get a supergeek badge...bah...

Kitsune and I are teaching our dog Tiny her first trick. (She already knows "Sit.") When we say "Yoga!" she stretches. She's gotten it right a few times, now -- I'm looking forward to trying it again later today to see if she really knows it or if it was just dumb luck.

ZenGum 05-18-2009 12:55 AM

Making me happy is the fact that the making-you-happy thread is now ahead of the upsetting-you thread in post count, as of RFN.

Yay the happy smilie things!

xoxoxoBruce 05-18-2009 01:00 AM

It has been my experience that the fetch trick is more easily taught when tossing pork chops.

Brave friends who take the time and put forth the effort to show their care for me by *acting* in the face of difficult and unpleasant circumstances.

I am blessed.

Queen of the Ryche 05-22-2009 01:07 PM

the SHOUT SHOUT therad actually literally made me LOL! Thanks Jim!

DanaC 05-22-2009 02:15 PM

I just sat my last exam and handed in my last assignment. yey!

Some stuff went a little awry as I approached the home stretch (silly errors born of tiredness) that have lost me some marks on one of my assignments (not completing the online turnitin submission properly. Didn;t actually go through so counts as 3 days late = 15 point deduction....but it's only 20% of the module mark. So...hopefully as long as I havent totally munched the exam, I should be ok :)

It's in the lap of the Gods now. Regardless of whether I get my 1st class grade or not...I. Have. Fucking. Finished. :)
Three fucking years. And my God this last one was a bitch.

*grins* so, having averaged one night's sleep in two for the last week and a half, i intend to sleep until I put down roots.




(and I know this is the happy thread...and I am happy...but I think I might just cry a little that Dad won't be at my Graduation ceremony.)

Clodfobble 05-22-2009 02:16 PM

Congrats, Dana!

DanaC 05-22-2009 02:17 PM

Cheers! *smiles* I can't believe it's three years.

skysidhe 05-22-2009 02:21 PM

congrats Dana !

Flint 05-22-2009 02:27 PM

I finally found a copy of the album Thunder Seven, by Triumph.


Queen of the Ryche 05-22-2009 02:32 PM

DanaC 05-22-2009 02:41 PM

Thankyou! I am currently very very tired and also very very hyped lol.

And...there are no exams in a research MA...so I think I probably just sat my last exam evah.

glatt 05-22-2009 02:51 PM

Excellent! Well done, Dana.

limey 05-22-2009 04:27 PM

morethanpretty 05-23-2009 12:19 PM

Good news about a good friend, who is doin good!

Crimson Ghost 05-23-2009 10:21 PM

Good going, Dana.

Clodfobble 05-24-2009 12:05 AM

1.) I went to a baby shower, and counter to my suspicions, it did not suck.
2.) I got a massage.
3.) I got my first pedicure ever (wouldn't have been my choice, but it was part of the spa gift certificate that got me a massage,) and discovered it's actually really nice. I didn't realize they do things like get rid of all your calluses and massage your feet while they're working. Plus, now my toenails are silvery-blue.
4.) Minifobette is officially weaned, which is great in and of itself, but it also means that I do not strictly have to be on her diet anymore. Mr. Clod went out and got me a big container of queso to celebrate. It was awesome.

Today was a good day.

lumberjim 05-24-2009 12:17 AM

tomorrow.....queso's revenge.

DanaC 05-24-2009 07:12 AM

I just had some soup and had a piece of bread with it:) That's the first solid food I've managed since Friday. I feel like I've eaten a banquet!

Tell me about it. And it's worth noting that I could only eat about 1/4 of the container before I felt far too full to go on. Back in the day (as in, anytime prior to the last 7-8 weeks) I could eat the whole thing. There's no going back unless I make a conscious effort to gorge myself.

Sundae 05-27-2009 05:22 AM

Going up to London today, the see a screening of the first two episodes of Psychoville, with a panel discussion afterwards (featuring the delectable Mr Shearsmiths).

Am also going to have my hair cut. Technically I can't afford it this week, but decided I'd manage. I'll have exactly 0.54 left! Poor hairdresser isn't getting a tip.

I'll run out of milk, but I can always get the 'rents to sub me - as long as they are buying groceries rather than giving me money they have no fear that they might be funding a relapse. Anyway, I know Mum has been looking at my untidy mop for weeks now with an exasperated air... She might not like it when I get back, but she will like the fact that I budgeted more of less correctly in order to get it done. She's rather sub me 1.66 than 15 after all.

Meeting my bro in London - although he lives in Aylesbury he commutes there for work. Which gives me a nice social aspect to the trip. I'm meeting him from work and walking over Westminster Bridge (Earth has not anything to show more fair/ Dull would he be of soul who could pass by/ A sight so touching in its majesty - I'll take pics!) and down the South Bank together. He has my Mum's punctuality gene the same way I do, so he'll understand why I have to be in my seat by 18.00 when the ticket says 18.15 :)

Shawnee123 05-27-2009 10:52 AM

So, the lady who took my old job quit. They contacted me to ask if I would be willing to sign on as a "consultant" until they get someone hired and trained and they get a little caught up.

I didn't want to do anything to jeopardize my job here, so I asked my boss, who asked her boss, who asked her boss...now it's all approved with our dept VP and human resources.

I start tonight.

The money will be really good, and consultant looks good on a resume if I ever need it.

I will just be a little tired. :)

monster 05-27-2009 12:45 PM

Bri's back.

Pie 05-27-2009 12:52 PM

Just heard a talk by D.C. school chancellor Michelle Rhee. She's certainly passionate about the subject, and doesn't mind breaking heads. I am happy to see someone willing to go toe-to-toe with the entrenched interests in our school system that are preventing some much-needed change.

Thats awesome - At least they finally see how much you are worth albeit too late. Just keep thinking of what you'll do 2with all that extra cash - Can you say Vacation AND car???
