April 20th, 2006

Ah. I gotta tell you something - those Caribou people and that moosing of coffee is a great thing. Two hours of sleep last night and I'm - pardon me - draggin arse this morning. I am surprisingly feeling fairly well though. I've had this numbness in my feet that seems to be subsiding on my own to which I am grateful. I've had my feet go the same "numb" before twice and both times were followed by the two nasty attacks I had last year. I am thinking that this will clear up on its own for once. I forced myself to work out last night. I am so glad i did because I made these silly Bisquick Cinnamon Swirl bisquits when I got home and they jumped in my mouth from the warm oven. Mysterious phenomenon, the jumping bisquits. Anyone else have this problem? Things just mysteriously jump from the oven to hungry mouths or even more mysterious - they evaporate somewhere unknown from the pan? It eludes me ;o) The new job is panning out well. I have officially been here six months now and counting. I have had an extra busy last two weeks to which I am being paid a little bonus. YEA! I must say it's really nice having a job where people actually appreciate you instead of take advantage of you. I have another question for readers. Ok, two questions. 1) Why the hell do people ask you to watch a freaking guest book during a wedding? Will someone steal it? Will someone mysteriously write say, Marilyn Monroe as an entry? What the hell is this guest book job? I'll tell you what it is. It's a job created by people who just want to throw you in the wedding for the hell of it. REFERENCE = punch server. 2) What the hell is up with functions being executed on Holiday weekends. My sister Holly's high school graduation is on Memorial Day weekend. I know she didn't plan it that way, but who is the jackass who decided this was acceptable? As if finding a babysitter for some people with little ones wasn't hard enough? Last year we had some friends who threw their wedding on Labor Day weekend. I think if you choose to throw your function on a holiday weekend one of two things should happen. The first - you understand that if I have kids or previous plans I will NOT see you, but good luck to you whatever it is you decided to do on my vacation. The second - if I do cancel plans so I can attend your function you forfiet your gift - no questions asked, end of story, you get nothing from me as a token of my appeciation for your incosiderate planning tactics. Anyone else find this completely and utterly out of line? For GOD sake, I get ten holidays out of 365 days a year of working all year long. Who the hell says a YOU can use them FOR me? Thoughts for Thursday- or venting, your call :o) Oooh, I feel MUCH better. Thanks for your silent ears people. You rock.

Having 3 children and being a full time nursing student i completely agree! Two of my cousins had their weddings and would not even allow children to attend. Well needless to say they had 1 less guest as well. Glad to see you're doing well

That was great! I needed a Smile today! :) I agree. I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would ever what to get married on a holiday weekend, it goes the same for birthdays. Why do that? I always thought it was strange to hear of people who got married on their birthdays, that is crazy! I would want the dates to be seperate, they have completely different meanings and neither should be overshadowed by the other....some people! LOL I am glad the job is going well. Please take care. I wish you well. Jaime

Glad to see you're baaaaack! Have missed your lovely quips and quotes...Guestbook guard are like ushers...I really don't need someone to show me my seat at a wedding. I already know where I want to sit, which is usually in the back where no one can see me making faces or raising my hand when the minister poses the question "If anyone objects..." I ALWAYS object, if nothing else, just for purpose! And if it's a good friend, I object to the new husband or wife taking up my time with their new spouse. Usually the only person I want to talk to at a wedding IS the guestbook guard because they are as disgruntled at the wedding as I am.

Glad you are feeling better...

Venting is a very good thing! Thanks for the smile today....a stressful week makes me much to miserable for my family to stand much of me. I appreciated the laugh tonight and so does my family! =)

I agree holiday weekends are for ME...not that I get them all that often (seeing as I live where I work).
As for the redundant jobs at a wedding I feel as those jobs are important...Yeah right.
I think they are for the family who you feel the need to involve in your wedding, that you don't know what to do with. For some reason over the years I have been the punch bowl watcher, the guest book babysitter, and the gift guard.
