The perfect place for general chat (non-writing related). Please, no political discussions.
Did not anyone read the monthly newsletter that Faithwriter's puts out on the first of every month??? Let me see if I can do a link from here.
I cannot do a link, but here is the excerpt:
Portland Oregon Conference
The winner of our drawing for a refunded registration fee goes to Jesus Puppy.

Yay for Pup! That must be a nice blessing.
Deejay, I've been watching Call the Midwife on watch-tvseries.net (which is also where we're watching Doctor Who). It's 8 episodes, which is 2 more than the first season. BBC shows have fewer episodes than American shows and they have fewer channels in general as well. I think it leads to better shows, because they put more thought into the writing and editing.
Obviously I am here but it's because they put me on standby again. And it's now 5:20am, so I'm probably not going in. Thankfully I will work the next two nights. Can't afford to keep losing hours like this. It's because of the travelers again. If I'm scheduled the same night there's two or more of them, their contract limits their cut hours, so I get the cut rather than them. Unfortunately I also can't see when they'll be working so as to arrange my schedule on days they'll be off. It's frustrating. I realize we need them when we're busy but when we're not it hurts us regular staff. So I have to arrange my vacations to limit my time off so I can save up PTO, just for days I get cut without requesting.
I did some cooking and baking tonight, and last night too. Trying to keep the eating out budget at a minimum at least until I get paid next week. It's good to try new recipes, though. Some are great, others meh, but at least the more I experiment, the better I get.

Hey now, I paid fair and square. I didn't know anything about that drawing. What, are they trying to make me feel bad? It must have been rigged, someone should complain.
OOOOhhh Becky. How would you like to do me a favor?

Ya... way to short. Their are a few shows that only have 3-6 shows a season, most are about 10, then make you wait the whole year before they show new ones. At least Doctor Who has 13 + specials, and they break it up a little time-wise through the year.
Then too.... I can remember when.. you could sometimes get a show every week through the whole year, not just their dumb season stuff they have now. Every Saturday night at 7:30 I could turn on the TV and watch Doctor Who. (and contrary to what Leah would tell you.. It was GREAT!)
Just so you know, that I know... you know.. I didn't say a word.
But I sure thought of a couple.
Oh cool! I didn't get mine this month. I didn't think about it until just now though. So he gets a free conference? I'm doing my happy dance!!! Now you have extra money to make fudge for people who wish they could go to the conference but are afraid they might have a panic attack in the airport causing the TSA agents to taze them and tackle them to the ground, even though they would go with their FIl who may just happen to have a thick accent and gets targeted every time he travels so the agents would also tackle him and taze him while this other hypothetical person is rocking back and forth and screaming "I want my mommy!" But I won't even go into how crazy it might make that person look if the TSA people knew that potentially their Mommy passed away almost 2 decades ago.
Oh and Pup I warned you about thinking!
I don't know if I would trust him Becky he can be a slippery one!
I'm beginning to wonder just how efficient the TSA is in stopping terrorism. I'm starting to remember an old anti-war protest song from the 60s--"Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?"--referring to the average age of 19 of Vietnam War soldiers. Only I'd revise it to "Hey, hey, TSA, how many crooks did you catch today?" (Terrorist wouldn't fit, and that's all I could think of.)
Seriously, making handicapped and elderly people in dignity panties (aka adult diapers) take them off for inspection, feeling up little kids--there has to be a better way.
I don't even like thinking, most time, it waste too many brain cells.
Haven't fallen of the planet (not that any of you might be wondering or anything). Been super busy. Sent the monkeys home last week, so that frees up a little bit of time.
I just bought a plane ticket to someplace called "Oregon." Heard about a gathering of a group
of strange writer-type folks. Thought I'd lurk around there and maybe meet some of them.
Yay for you, Seema!
I wished now that I was going. However, I don't want to be far away from my mom as she has no one else to call on should something come up. She is supposed to get results this afternoon from breast biopsy she had last week.( The same goes for visiting my family in North Carolina.)
You weren't being ignored, Shann told you not to pay any attention to me. And I haven't been doing well this week, pulled something in my back, so sitting has not been much fun. Doing better now but still bothering me.
As to the favor.... I thought that was obvious in the statement. I wanted you to write in and tell them I was complaining.
Seema, great to hear you will make it. Oh wait.. you aren't another of those chocolate loving people are you?
Well I'd take your free conference and go in your place, Puppy but my friend is getting married that day and I'm in the wedding.
So while you guys are having fun, I'll be in shoes with heels designed to torment and a dress that will probably make me sweaty cause it's summer time and hot out... blah blah.
BUT, I have a cool idea.
I don't know if any of you have skype maybe we could work in a way to have a video chat while you guys are all there. I don't know if Amy has it or not, and if it would work out. But it'd be kinda cool. Anyway, Just an idea.
