One Perspective

"This place is a prison
And these people aren't your friends.
And you can case the ground
From the Cascades to Puget Sound
But you are not permitted to leave."

Update! Update! Update!

I've started my job/temporary assignment with the United Way. It's really great. I get to go around to people at their workplaces, tell them about all the cool stuff the United Way does, tell them about this friend of mine who came to Maine from Rwanda as a refugee and was helped by the United Way, and then encourage...

This whole "auto-comment" thing on sets... I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds it obnoxious.
evanx:
No, you're not.

Hey, I got your txt.msg but I was driving at the time, so I didn't think it would be a good idea to reply right then. ANYWAY, I have a few questions. How long has this S.O known this opposite sex friend? It's a tricky situation and I am sure you are feeling a bit apprehensive. You could handle it two ways which might have different results. If you make a big deal about it she could think that you are controlling, jealous and don't trust her. Not good things in a relatively new relationship. But then again she just may be testing you...to see if she does get a reaction out of you...you know... to see how much you care and if you DO get jealous. *shrugs shoulders* If it were me I'd ask general questions about the guy (if she hasn't already opened up about her good pal) You could jokingly say something like " Good thing you're such good friends with him...or I'd be one jealous man!".... or even.... "I'm gonna miss you when you're away! That's one lucky friend you've got there!" Letting her know that you're not jealous of him specifically, but of the time she's spending away from you! If it were me...I'd keep cool...even if it was KILLING me!
Let me know if this helps!
*kisses*

Saw the funniest thing on the way home from work today. An Escalade with the license plate, "BGJONSN". *eye roll* Oh brother. Is someone overcompensating?

I also have this annoying advertising jingle stuck in my head. It goes "nine-six-seven, eleven, eleven, come to Pizza Pizza, hey hey hey!" It's the "hey hey hey" that gets me.
graycen:
hey! hey! hey!
I miss you too damnit!
What'cha doing this weekend? Wanna make plans?

I was stuck in traffic next to a truck that had it's windows wide open and it was blaring country music ( as much as country music can blare I guess) Anyway, When it passed me I got a good look at the license plate which read: BROKBAK
*laughing*

TTYL & Happy 4th!

I don't know why guys are so wrapped up in the stats of baseball. Who can keep track and WHY would you want to?
I just watch it for fun....ummm... AND to see the cute players... AND to watch the butt patting... AND to check out the uniforms. Of course, this is all from a girl who decides who is going to win by the team mascot.

Miss you, damnit!

OKay, okay. I know someone put a lot of work into this new layout, and I don't want to complain about their hard work. But there are some things that irk me about the new format.

1. On the front page, that little applet window with the new sets in it sure is flashy, but you can't see the names without clicking on...

graycen:
Glad to see your back...even if it is to BITCH about the new format.
*grinning*
I've been MIA ( SO SPANK ME! OK?) and logging on to see the new format totally took me by surprise.
Yeah. It DOES take a few more clicks to get what you want accomplished, but GOSH DARNIT... AIN'T it PURTY?!

Oh. Uh... yeah, I didn't get it.
Now I'm on vacation.
Anyone want to hike, and know of some place where it HASN'T been raining for 40 days and 40 nights? Or anybody want a short-term houseguest in some city I've never seen?
graycen:
Sorry to hear about the job.
Wanna go out Sunday night? ( I can't tomorrow 'cause I have the kiddos)
Let me know!

Still no word on the new job. I'm all stressed out. They were supposed to let me know Monday, but they're dragging their feet, which I think means they're offering it to someone else, but keeping me in line as a fallback. Which, honestly, kinda blows.

Sooooo....
I applied for a promotion at work. It would mean more money, an extra week of vacation, more responsibility, a chance to travel (a little, within the Northeast... no further than Philly), and a chance to finally make the move out of the mortgage world. Wish me luck! I interviewed last week, and should find out today.
evanx:
Well, good luck! That's sounds like a good deal! smile

I've been feeling lately like this whole single thing I've been doing might not be the worst thing in the world. All my friends have been having big relationship troubles and they're miserable. Me? I got baseball. Baseball never has problems you don't understand. Baseball never leaves for somebody else. Baseball never has a headache (although there are the rain delays...
