    Well, I for one was without power and access to a computer for 11 days due to the hurricane and now dealing with the aftermath. I've posted a few times in the last week or so but no one even acknowleged my posts so I'm pretty much back to lurking and reading. It's not easy throwing yourself out there when you're a newbie and you're among a group that knows each other and has participated together before. It can be a bit intimidating IMHO.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    So I am in the corner, trying to get the cork out of the Pinot Grigio (no wonder, it's a screw top). I just got a call from my bank checking to see if I really DID charge $5,573 to my credit card for a plane ticket on Brazilian Airlines. How do people do these things????? So now I am without a credit card till a new one is issued in 7-10 days. If I'm at the North Pole, why would I want to fly to Brazil? Hoping SS box comes soon so I can mope around something exciting.

    Blondeslave, I apologize. I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings. I know there are many people who have been affected by the hurricane. I know where my package went, and it wasn't anywhere near Hurricane Central.

    Cherrio, I am also sorry about your precious kitty baby. I have a big ole white cat (charley), and I am not quite sure how old he is, because a former student gave him to me, because he had allergies. We have had him about 9 years now, and they had to have had him a bit, and he was given to them. We do love our little fur babies.

    I am glad to see some others have got their secret santa packages, and I hope those waiting will get theirs very very soon. Now, for the waiting game. lol....

    I saw mommy kissing santa claus. da da da da da da da da da.....

    Christmas toys all over the place
    Little Shelby wears a funny smile on his face
    Shelby has a secret
    And the secret he must share
    He wants to tell somebody
    So he tells his teddy bear

    I saw Mama kissing Santa Claus
    Underneath the misteltoe last night
    She didn't see me creep
    Down the stairs to have a peek
    She thought that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep
    Then, I saw Mama tickle Santa Claus
    Underneath his beard so snowy white
    Oh, what a laugh it would have been
    If Daddy had only seen
    Mama kissing Santa Claus last night

    well I'm going to need a rather large bottle of TEQUILA if you have that kind of money to spend.

    Hey there! I was whipped by Sandy as well and by the time I got here there were zillion posts. It is fun lurking as well! Here, have a glass of Molly's on ice. It'll make you feel better. Cheers!!!

    LOL same thing happened to me. Hubby called from work to see how I managed to get to Bangkok, charge our card, and come back, all within a day. Bank reimbursed us, but we were without our cards for a while. Good luck! I wish I were in Bangkok, I bet it is much warmer than here!

    This is my first SS too. I do the secret pal , this isn't real different except the waiting. I go forever and don't post and then just have to say something, and this morning naturally it was about gin. Maybe that's because last night I had a couple of tequilla and tonic's. I have to ration those out, tequilla very expensive anymore so usually vodka tonic until I can't stand it any more. The box is on my dining room table and it really doesn't say a word, but I know there is bells and whistles in there. I'm trying to convince myself that what I need now isn't in there so just telling myself to get over it...heehee.
    I hope your home wasn't damaged to badly in the storm, but I'm sure being without power for that long is bad enough. I really just can't imagine, my heart goes out to everyone that has to go through this type of ordeal.
    That identity theft is horrible, went through that once and never want to go there again. You're lucky to have caught it soon enough. Okay ladies better get something done around here, have a great day.
