Yes, it's a great opportunity and of course, I will worry endlessly, until he gets back, but, I pray that it will make him look at what has happened down there and realize how bad things can really get and make him appreciat what he has and be a better person.

Talk about celebration!! I just received word, via email, that I am descended from Nigerian royalty-which came as quite a shock to me as I am about as caucasian as I could be!!!

Sadly, these relatives were lost in the tragedy of 9/11** (moment of silence please) But, evidently, me being the only surviving heir, their fortune (and it is sizable) is rightfully mine!!!

As soon as Mrs Smoke King goes to bed(she doesn't trust anyone!), I'm going to email my bank acct info to the barrister acting on their behalf, so that he will be able to easily transfer the funds into my account. Tomorrow at this time I am going to be rich!!!!

Woo-hoo!! My ship has finally come in!!!!



**Even though most of you realize this is tongue-in-cheek, for those who may be taking offense at this,let me be very clear that I am poking fun at the sleazy purveyors of these scams-and I am in no way minimizing the WTC tragedy. OK?

Now that you'll be rich, you'll be sharing the wealth with your fellow DCers, right? I hate those things. Most people know them for the scams that they are, but some people do fall for them. It is especially sad that they use such a tragedy to play on people's emotions.

You said a mouthful Barb. The sad thing is, people are still falling for it, and as long as they do, these rotten will keep doing it.

Today was my first day at work! Woohoo! I started substitute teaching in hopes of getting a full time position next year again in a nearby school. The wonderful thing is that the two schools I'm shooting for are a 2-minute drive from home. I'm happy that I have been asked to return tomorrow to sub in another classroom. Yey! I love being financially independent.
