As a chronic insomniac, I understand.
Just didn't want you to think anyone was going to beat up on you if you didn't produce!
No need to be nervous.
When I'm up above someone looking down at them like a panther about to drop -that'd be time to be nervous.
If I was slithering along quietly on the ground behind someone, that'd be time to be nervous.
Yer sellin' a house, time for celebratory drink and laughter.
Produce? I have plenty of years for.. what? Oh, right.
I'm actually quite eager to write more. For once I have
a story that I CAN continue. I'm sure you & Monkey
Face will be excited over that, it's not another cliff
hanger like the others I'm so good at.
We will stamp his forehead with his name.
Well,I hear that, sweetie, and ordinarily, I would agree...
but the last time we thought we had a sure thing, we went out to dinner the night before, and they flaked on us AGAIN
( despite REal Estate Shark saying "This time for SURE!")
And THEn it was a real mess having to tell Caitlin, "No honey, the deal fell through... " And she has been SO good for nearly a year now, not asking for stuff, and helping where she can.
So i am REALLY reluctant after all of this to get out my dancing shoes.
"Um, wooden shoes, yes, but only in the tourist traps."
I had the good fortune 20 years ago to meet a couple from The Netherlands who were on a driving tour of America. The had enough money to bring their vehicle (VW bus) with them, and enough that they could live for $5 a day, for the six months they were here. But they had no money to get their vehicle back to Holland.
They bought a HUGH box of small wooden shoes, which she painted, and they sold for $5 a pair. They would also meet people at churches, and after hearing their accents, would, of course, ask where they were from, etc.
The story usually, (almost always, in fact,) prompted an invitation to lunch or supper. He was a cook on a sloop, and she was a maid for a well-to-do family. I have a beautiful little pair of hand-painted wooden shoes, that cost me $5, and some warm memories of a very brave couple...I wouldn't trade either item for anything in the world...:-)
He stated that the constitution doesn't work for us anymore.
He's stated the 'need' for a national ID card, claims it's not a Democrat backed idea.
(It is, just like the draft was.)
He's really.. out there.
"I make it a point to understand the functionality (I plan on getting a CPA this year just for the heck of it)."
I can remember when a CPA was needed in our house. Now, I'm lucky if I need a caluclator! *snort!* ;)
Bad luck can't continue forever though.
Even I, a nexus of bad luck and negative chance, can't have a losing streak forever.
LOL...The only ones who believed the Draft Scam were the lefties who thought it up. It is really scary when you start to believe your own lies:-)
Yeah, that was quite an amusing thing to see.
They were all blarting out their methane ware and then 'sniffing the political winds' they were passing to gauge what was going on.
(I.e. as you said: they believed their own lies.)
The thread where he says the anti-constitution stuff.
We ought to roundup a few of our favorite left wing suspects eg, "The forehead", Kerry, Carville, et al, and take them to Vegas for a stand up revue. The customers would be rolling in the isles!!
Would be great.
Begala: "Everyone knows Bush has started WW3! It's been proven by...........
Kerry: "We are in a depression that rivals 1929...I have a plan that would.......
Somebody would throw popcorn on stage at them..
And soemone would pipe up with, "You're mean-spirited!"
To which there'd be extreme laughter while another of the delusionites would be blathering ridiculous hatred at the same time as the above comment...
Oh Boy! The computer crashed before I
could save the new sections of my story.
I was so upset. Lucky for me Word
Perfect had a backup file 'cause it didn't
shut down right. Talk about relieved. Now
I'm paranoid & am saving every few sentences.
Most states have programs for "aides" (being called other names of course, such as "helpers" or "providers") and the requirements differ from state to state. Some require as much as six months of school, and others require only basic training.
Most are not live-in, but the experience can be good (or not) depending on the person one is assigned to. The most important thing is to get a GED, and, if you later decide you want or need it, you can always get your diploma.
With either one, you should be eligible for many kinds of financial aid if you want to get into a technical school or go to a regular college. And there are always people who would be willing to take in a student for a little extra help around the house once in a while.
Of course, I'm just offering what I know...;)
Congrats, you! :-)
