This!
I'm on parole for 12 1/2 more hours before I have to return to Mordor.
Fortunately I have Caturday and alcohol to make it tolerable.

I get to sit in a windowless room tomorrow, and supervise Middle Schoolers who are in trouble..oh joy.

Holy Mother of Pearl!
I don't envy you at all! I can't stand the little &%#$**'s when they're across the street, never mind being cooped up in a class room with them.
/ear plugs and a big stick!


They all think I am that nice sub they see in the class room. Until I lay dwn the law. The Assistant principal likes me to sub this job, because I can usually keep them in control. But oy! A looong day!

CooperDaKat: yobbery:

Am I old if I consider that 74 Pontiac as one of the 'newer' Pontiacs? I'm only 53???


Just WTF is going on this week?!?!?!?!?!?!

1) I'm not far behind you at 47
2) 82 year old neighbor says "I didn't know you were that young"
3) Checking out at the grocery store...grocery bagger: "Do you need a cart, Sir?" Nah, I'm fine. Second bagger walks by: "Do you need a hand out. Sir?" **GAHHHHHH** No thanks! Have a nice day!

I get stuff like that at times and I hate it, but sadly the only choices are acceptance or depression. What the hell, it's just part of the journey.

Goodnight all.

yobbery: John Buck 41: yobbery: While we're on the subject, this is my current sweetheart. I just need to do a little work on the rear resonators and she'll be back to her old silent self.
1967

/the trunk alone easily seats four.

How many miles on her?

58,000 gas guzzling miles. The car weighs 5,500 Lbs. and has a 462 with a four barrel. I never did calculate gallons per mile...been too ascared. :o)
I can't really afford to drive it much anymore. I have the timing retarded (which eats more gas) and it still pings like a jackhammer on anything less than premium. I won't use lead additives or octane boosters, they just make things worse in the long run. I might sell it and get back into old VW beetles or something a bit more economical.

...and a cat

58k miles on a 45 y/o car? Holy crap.

Sorry I have not been around as much as I would have liked, but once again RL is intervening *sigh*

Thanks to all who responded to my inquiry regarding the furminator, both in the thread and via email, your input is greatly appreciated - and Dragon is thrilled that the popular opinion seems to be... NO.
And on that note,

Goodnight, and I hope see you all again in a few days... :o)

It's prom season, with wedding season quick to follow. That means I get to read Caturday in between working on dresses.

My boss for the last 6.5 years has decided that since I'm trying to get my own alterations business going during the off-season, she'd like me to work contract for her instead of hourly. That means I don't have to go into her shop except for wedding gown fittings. I get to do all other fittings in my own shop, sewing either at home or at my shop.

One of the upsides of this is the ability to visit Caturday during my I-can't-stand-it-I-need-a-break times. At the bridal shop, there's no way for me to browse the internet during my breaks. (my phone is a phone, not an internet browsing device)

If you want to check out my projects, go to: My Site (pops)

Here's Penny helping me check out a set of cushions:

*Slight threadjack*

Today I got myself some actual, gen-u-ine Kitty Lovin'!!!

There's a neighborhood calico wandering around.
She has a collar, but I don't know where she lives or who she lives with.
All I can tell you is that she was walking across the yard from the house to the north toward the
house on the south.

I did a "Here kitty-kitty" and made a sound kind of like a momma cat makes to kittens,
and she walked right up the steps onto the porch and came over to me.

I honestly haven't gotten to pet a cat in over 10 *years*.
She let me give her skritches, rubs, petting, and she gave me head bumps and rubbed
against my legs. I was dumbfounded!

I just had to tell somebody.

That's what I like about this crowd, always ready to help!
I was going to recommend this Link but I figured Dragon would have both of our harbles if you got one.
/likes my harbles where they are, thank you very much!

Finally got to chorus celebration of our 3d place overall last wkend. Plumbicon let me have his car, against his better judgement, esp considering the blood glucose adventure of early eve. I did get up to 105 so I could go, then was 297 at end of eve from all the fruit juice I'd had to drink to boost it so I could go. Tried not to eat very much but was able to bring home a flocka leftovers!
(Too Much
is always brought, didn't even put mine out bcs I got there 2 hrs later than I should've.)

Found one that now I don't recall exactly what it's saved as; " c u Purrsday" is within the caption but don't think part of the title. With that sentiment, I'll bid all y'all adieu til next time. Sorry for wonky lines; left small on too long.
