Oh Jay I'm so sorry. I can't believe that I forgot your birthday and it's on 11-11 too. Next to matching undies and biting elephants 11-11 is my favorite thing! I'm glad you had a good day. I haven't been on to play Word with you because my tablet is broken and that's were all my games are. Chris has let me borrow his, but he groans when I mention putting a game on it so I've been trying to get by with the horrific ones he has. I did download the Candy one, but didn't do the others. The part was supposed to come Friday, if it's not here today his tablet may get more games. For some reason I can't play them on the PC they freeze up.
I should be working on getting Amy's birthday present done. When I thought I might see her for her birthday in August I worked really hard, then when our plans fell through...I kind of put it aside. She knows I'm knitting her something with the look thingie that I got for Christmas, but it's so big and heavy it keeps breaking so it's much harder to do.
I need to finish the MS and proof Q's theology paper and only have a day or two to do both. I'm a bit stressed by it all. Plus I have had a bad headache and backache for weeks now. I can hardly see anything from the migraine and it hurts to strain my eyes. If I'm away from heating pad too long my bag starts screaming obscenities. Between not moving as much and replacing my rice cakes with PB cups I can feel the pounds piling on every few minutes. I made Chris promise not to buy me rice cakes and honey, now I think I'm going to ask him to do the same for candy. Then I'm also eat tortilla chips with melted cheese and oatmeal. Not very healthy which may be why I feel so cruddy. I'm eating my yogurt still though.
Has Becky been on since I hinted that the crazy family good be us? She either got extremely inspired by us or insulted that she would consider such wacky characters as us...or I guess she could be helping her grandparents. I mean she wouldn't be insulted because I suggested she use us as characters, she can be the queen oddball. I'm sure Amy would step down from her throne to let Becky be Queen Bonkers Beakers.
I used a lot of you when I was asked not to use my Wrigley character anymore because she was too recognizable. Okay I need to either go back to editing or bed, not sure which. Oh Pup the poem? I'm still waiting!
And Jay, if you would like a echt editor or just a plain proofreader for your 2000 word piece, I'd be delighted to do it for you. I can do a piece that short for free too, just let me know! Good lucj.
If any of you haven't entered the challenge in a while, you should really try. There have been a big decline in the numbers this quarter some in the low 40's and I know they really need people. Remember you get 4 chance for free if you're not a gold or platinum member. The topic is like living in a fishbowl and now they don't want a bunch of stories about dirty fishbowls or anything fishy just a story about people scrutinizing the lives of others.
