You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

Snopes currently lists it as "undetermined".
Well, I'm a believer. Went up to visit a friend tonight and this is the house across the street from her. It's insane - there are little puffs of "smoke" coming out of the chimney, the snowmen are throwing snowballs at each other, and yes it is all perfectly co-ordinated to the music.

And yes, as neighbours, they are not fans. More because of the traffic it attracts than the lights themselves, though.

It's definatly true... the snopes articale is also updated to reflect that.

Completely forgot this was coming, but my job pays back your unused Paid Time Off... So I just got a check for the 64 hours I didn't use this year. Sure I hate my job and probably could have used those hours to regain some sanity and hate it less, but it's nice to have an unexpected 80% paycheck :-) I think this might go towards a new computer finally.

Not working is kind of depressing, but there are obvious benefits too.

1. I slept until 10am this morning. Woke up, ate cereal and FWed in my PJs. I have mere moments before this starts getting depressing again.

2. My new house is REALLY coming along! Two months ago, this place looked like the aftermath of the setting for an acting out of a sin in Seven. Now, it's like a home and stuff. Pictures, to come.

Found a 1939-s penny on the street today. Not often here that one finds things lying around that pre-date WWII. It was scratched up a bit, and thus probably worth less than the 2003 dime I discovered next to it, but still, literally, a rare find.

plus what makes it extra rare is that no one else picked it up after all this time

I had a tuna sandwich for lunch and I only ate 1/2 of it, saving the rest for later. A co-worker (female) came over to my desk and was talking to me and (seeing the mr. goodcents wrapper and most likely detecting the smell) asked if I didn't finish my lunch.

I replied, "no I didn't. were you afraid the smell was you?"

Man, I am so funny I am like the carrot top of my office only without the big hair and most of the props.

Just finished with all of the orange flags...I haven't been on here in almost 2 weeks! I've been extraordinarily busy with school starting back up...I also got transferred (against my will) to another store, where the store manager is 44 and 5 months pregnant. Needless to say, I'm doing a lot more of the physical labor than I'm used to. Anyway, this is supposed to be things that make me happy, not things that make me miserable...so...yeah, ummm....the whole flags thing, yep. That makes me happy. :lol:
Jake will be here until I feel more creative again.

I've got 2 things that have made me very happy! I've been dieting, and last night I lost 8lb (in 7 days) which means I've lost just under 2 stone since September.
and today I got offered a job that I interviewed for on Tuesday, working as a secretary to an MP!! I'll be working at the Houses of Parliament!!!
I'm so happy..... :D

Congratulations on both counts.

I'm happy because I'm being sent over to South Africa for 10 days, to do some work. It's summer in SA :banana:

Yeah, so I had to get up at 5 to be here for that client's financial results upload this morning, but now I find out that I can leave at 2. That's just one more hour! What will I do with all that extra spare time!?

wd & wd!

As a fellow dieter, I know what it feels like to lose a fair bit of weight. I've lost 2.5 stone (35lbs) since this time last year. Could have lost more, but I was enjoying being two dress sizes smaller and drinking beer too much. Back on the wagon proper now - only gained 2lb over Christmas, and doing yoga again. And I'm gonna get one of those PS2 EyeToy workout game things. Got a dance mat and it's a great way to exercise :D

Hey Coco - you can see Punisher while you're down there. Have a most excellent trip!
