Snippets

My modem no longer has a drinking problem. It has had a feed of bacon, eggs and hash browns and been to rehab. I'm so pleased. Dial up isn't my friend, unless I"m really desperate.

While I've been away ...

Random men have been adding me as friends on Facebook. I guess it is one way for guys to meet women. On one hand, my ego loves the attention, but on the other hand, I think it is pretty creepy that they are trawling their friends profiles looking for women. I'm keeping my profile very limited, so only my friends can see the contents. And every friend I have I've met in person.

My family just got bigger. All of a sudden my mum is the youngest of 6 instead of the youngest of 3. My grandfather was a conman, with a taste for serial monogamy. His children have now identified 4 different names he used. Mum is very excited. I've lost count of all the excited phone calls and conversations with her. And the emails. My goodness. She is repeating herself a lot in her excitement. My stepfather is excited - he thinks he is going to see what mum will look like in 10 years.

Nothing new on the work front. They want me, but they can't afford me for a few more months. I don't know if I will go then - it will all depend. I might be happy again. Things may not feel as right as they did. They have poached my favourite sales guy though, and he is another good reason to go there.

My boyfriend's work hours have changed. They suck. He is now on the afternoon/evening shift. It is not relationship friendly. On the plus side, I get to have dinner with him on Sunday nights. On the minus side, I'm already noticing that the time we get to talk during the day is reduced. We are going to need to find a way to keep our communication up, because I'm noticing a difference and I don't like it. Any suggestions?

I'm madly working on the questions for the annual fund raiser for my parents church. This will either be the 4th or 5th year that we have done it, and it is really popular. I love doing the trivia nights, and have way too much fun trying to come up with evil questions.

I remember when I was nursing, doing 3 different shifts, and Math was also doing shifts, our relationship existed by post-it-notes. Hope the trivia night is a blast, I love doing them.

That's wild about your family! What a way to expand your relatives - heh. It will be fun to meet everyone, though!

Oh my! You covered a lot of territory in this post!

Facebook: Haha! I don't think I'll have that one to worry about...after they get a look at my profile!!

Increasing family: Hubs family had a 'surprise' nephew show up about 15 years ago. Caused a lot of excitement and interest. The nephew has become quite close to the family. Lot of fun!

Work relationship: Brought back memories. In the dating stage, I was going to school, hubs was working in the oil field. The only time we had was from 12:00 noon until 3:00 p.m....for several weeks! Strange....

I'm interested in your 'evil' trivia questions!! Be sure and post them!!
