    So meaning that if we pay attention to the chatter on the thread when we get our secret partner's name, then we can do what they like. Got it.[/QUOTE]
    Yes yes - thats what I thought.Figuring what colors the person wants an making a nice runner for them. Snowflakes are always a good thing for me! So many possiblilities!when do we get the name??
    And didn't Miss A say she had a hexagon table???

    Nope.. I has a round table! I'm just making a hexagon topper for someone else cause I figure it will work on any table they have.

    Alrighty, fingerprinting done, voting done, BF harassment done, I need a nap.. Gotta read some things and write a paper today/tonight. Need to make some progress on projects, or cleaning. Meh.. cleaning can wait til tomorrow. hehe.

    Some people have put suggestions with their color scheme on the questionnaire so that will help. Hold your pants on, if people would stop signing up I might close it early but nope, still getting at least one sign up a day so you got 9 more days. We're getting quite a turnout for my first swap. Sweeeet.

    That said, Here are the players as of today

Just saying......

    I thought I posted it here? huh.. Well it's a long term temp position at Wells Fargo reviewing foreclosure documents. It's second shift, pay is what I'm used to, has benes, and it's by my school, so it's near perfect. it'd be super perfect if it paid me as much as my last job but sure that job only paid that well to cover the therapist fees.

    I've worked in their mortgage division twice and their securities division once, so I'm used to working there. I was hoping for a call from my old boss about a permanent position I applied for with them but the hours wouldn't be as good of a fit, nor the location, but the pay was a ton better and I"m sure the benes would have been kicked up a notch too. but whatever works.

    I am broke.. simply put.. soooo broke.. and I got an international secret santa so even more broke. And I have too many projects to get done by mid november, plus school so I just needed a break.

    Good luck to your interview! I suck at them. Kinda why I like temp agencies, they're my interview so I don't have to. It takes lots of pills for me to handle an interview.

    Table runner is due in the mail Jan 15th. So lots of time to deal with holiday stuffs.

    I just have to finish quilting the table topper for my secret santa and i"m so over it right now hahaha.. I want it to be magically done. I have to go write a 750 word paper due tomorrow now. yay me. I can't even focus on reading the thing I'm supposed to read, or the instructions for how to write it. I'm so over this set of classes. haha. I'm soooo over a lot of things, it's hibernation time.

    Brenda didn't know you were trying to find a job also, so good thoughts about that for you. One advantage Anastasia to that part time, not quite as much pressure for school, I know it's hard to work full time and go to school too. Benefits count for alot these days, not to many companies even give those anymore. Put myself in that owner position because of my business for many years, gave benefits and automatic pay increase, some thought I was totally nuts, but had very loyal, honest employees. That was worth its weight in gold to me. Glad I don't have that anymore, retirement is very good. I'm beginning to like those long coffee breaks you know? I wish you all kinds of luck though also and hope you both get jobs. Well as long as you keep sewing too, I would get lonesome without you!!!
    We definately need to have that tequilla party at your house and get stupid, fall up the stairs or down, we won't care, backsides might be a little black and blue but that's okay, it'll mend in time, my old skin takes a little longer you know. Then I'll let you know another thing you need......

    Nope not part time, full time, but the hours are great for school and if I'm right about the location, it's 3 blocks from school! so even better. I love when temp agencies offer benes, THAT is rare.

    Hehe Tequilaaaaaaa.. I think tequila is definitely in order this weekend.. hmmmmmm.. Is that a misappropriation of unemployment funds? eh who cares. hehe I will still sew, and I'll still check in on breaks and night owl hours and probably first thing when I get up. Sewing will have to be after work I think. We'll see how this all plays out. I don't particularly enjoy doing 2 things in one day cause then I have no time for anything else. But since school is part time, hopefully I'll have some days that are free to myself before work.

    Where are we going? I'm not sure if I want to go - I've heard about some of the things you do - remember we spent lots of time on the bench in Sept and Oct - fortunately it wasn't the 'naughty corner' of the SS group. LOL

    Hey Brat! I miss your chatter, prayers going your way! Hope you got your coffee!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Hi A,
    So glad your job worked out for you with your school stuff!! I just gotta say if I would've had a drink of my coke, I would have choked on it when I read "it takes lots of pills for me to handle an interview"...simply because it sounds exactly like something I would have written!! LOL...So, anywhooo, congrats again...
    Sending good thoughts your way too, Brenda...
    Regards all,
    Kif
    aka as KA (per Anastasia)...

    KandyApple They are legally prescribed pills at least! I'm all jacked up in the head, if you haven't noticed from my posts. haha. Mostly in regard to dealing with humans. I don't do it well at all. I'm pretty good at handling it on my own without those pills when I'm not constantly having to deal with humans. Another reason why this job is pretty perfect.. I will be left alone to my own devices and virtually no human interaction. I suppose I should call to verify..I could possibly continue to sit on my arse for awhile longer if I don't eh?

    Honestly if you got a theme and color, it'll probably work if you want to get a head start, but then you're going to miss all the fun laterrrrrrrr...

    Oh Vanogay you hurt my feelings, I wasn't naughty, actually I thought I was on pretty good behavior. We're going to crash in on Anastasia and celebrate her new job!! Didn't mean to forget you maryt, I know tequilla will help those blisters, you won't even feel them anymore. We need you there, pick you up when I get the "Brat". Dang she's suppose to call me, sure wish she would. Been thinking of her all day......

    Jaba, didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Whilst we were on the bench, it was all the things we thought of, but didn't do that I was referring to!!! Ready to head for A's when you call - meet you in St Louie...

    Lucky for you all, I actually kinda cleaned today, did some laundry, did most of the dishes took out all the garbage. This is excessively productive for me. That's apparently what unannounced guests do. Haha. My brother woke me up knocking on my door at around 2pm and just finally left at 8pm, so I had to entertain him, feed him, let him use my washer/dryer, then he got his kid and brought him over so then I had to listen to his kid, feed his kid, smell his kid (he's a new cologne/perfume salesman) listen to them argue over my head to each other to then pass on via text to my other brother ... I have a headache.. But the kitties are happy they have food, and the dog is happy he has food, and my mom is happy cause I brought her the rest of my super delicious lasagna, and the fish will be happy once I put him in his new home and let him have some of his food. I figured he survived a water change and lasted 2 weeks, he must be pretty hardy. The prettier fish I got before him didn't even last overnight, they sold me a fishie with parasites. grrr. He was sooo pretty and rare. ohwell. this one gets super excited when it sees me.. you know how puppies act when you get home? yea like that. So I decided he needs a little bigger home than the containers they sell them in. I kept him in it past the warranty date so that if they try to say it's my water I can be like.. lies.. heheh but he survived. I suppose I could go sew.. but now that I was so productive on the homefront, I feel like doing nothing.

    We have a HUGE blizzard on it's way by midnight tonight... they're forecasting 11-14" in the next 24 hours (there's no snow currently - it was high 60's yesterday). I am keeping my fingers crossed that the snow isn't too deep tomorrow morning... if I can get out to the school where I do my observations on time, when I leave at 3:05 pm, I will be DONE DONE DONE DONE DONE!!!!! for ALL my observations for this semester! WOOOOO.

    And if it snows... well sh!t. That's going to be a problem. But if I can physically get to the school, I'll get to teach the 7th graders how to convert metric weights tomorrow! How much fun is that! I had to go and learn metric weights this morning so I could write a lesson plan about it. Geez louise. We really need to either go metric or go home. It's too darn confusing learning all these different measurement systems. No wonder kids are all, "uh... what?" when you ask them to convert!

    AND!!! If I get to school, teach my lesson, and make it home alive, then I can start finishing up my boom blocks, my row swaps, and my table runner... on Saturday! And then again on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday! Man o man I cannot wait to have 4 entire days off per week! I'm doing the 'so happy I don't know how to not be a dork about it' dance!

    Oh vanogay you are so funny....I think I got you on that one, I liked sittin' on that bench with you. Cross your fingers we're not there this month or then we'll know we really ticked someone off! Anastasia we could have taken out the garbage, etc. but now thanks to your work we have a little walkway. Promise we'll take it all out again before we leave. and mama hauser yup, it's coming our way too. Jeezs I hate that snow anymore, well not the snow it's the cold and wind that goes with it. You better send me a work sheet from class , serious, 'cause I don't know jack or jill for that matter about metric. I have to google it every time to find out what they're saying..Glad I'm not in your class, I can see you shaking your head and saying she needs lots of help. Didn't like math at all, I'm an english major, yet minor in business. Figure that one out..I sure can balance those books and pay the US though, learned that very well.

    Yea I really need to start thinking in metric units for all my science stuff and I can never remember the conversions. And we did a lot of dimensional analysis (conversions) in my chem class.. That was the hardest part for me. Good luck on the snow.

    The one that got me was when I had to be admitted to the hospital for my foot surgery - they asked me how many stones I weighed. I really don't know the answer, but the bed they put me in did. Figure that one out. I managed to get a Masters degree without any really high math - no physics at all. And of course I'm retired now, so I really don't give a flip - except if I can get a meter of fabric for the price of a yard, I'll take it!!!!!!

    Stones?! I *think* that's like 20 lbs. Or 20 something... I dunno. Who uses "stones"? That sounds like a third-world unit of measure (I'm being judgmental here, of course).

    So... I got that lesson taught and I did in fact survive the drive in almost 2 feet of snow (it started at lunch... 2 feet in about 3 hours!)... and they asked me to join the sub list (aka, the people they call when the teachers call in sick or whatever). That's HUGE!

    So I'm giving myself tonight off from homework, sewing, and doing anything that requires brain cells as a reward and then it's fingertips to the grindstone tomorrow!
