Sucks doesn't it? I'm working evenings this week so that means I see one kid for about 15 minutes each morning (if I can haul my butt out of bed in time!). I just couldn't do this shift for too long, I'd have my lip sticking out so far I'd trip on it.

Qsis, I completely understand where you are coming from in terms of grammar issues. I prefer to see correct spelling/grammar too. I am fascinated with the changes language goes through though so sometimes that overshadows my irritation with some of the other stuff. Linguistics is so cool.

Sure does...........just can't understand why I those stinking little power balls don't try harder to match my numbers .....that way I wouldn't have to worry about working a regular job.

I always forget to check my numbers. I'll be the one that has the winning ticket laying around for weeks to a month and decides one day to finally check them on the computer . I just check one today from Nov. 18th

Whatever you do, just don't forget your tickets stuffed into your trousers pocket, which are destined for the washer... just in case!!

Yep. Pook, you need to go back to square one today. Yeesh what a morning!

My vent is weather. Its is cold and blizzardy out there today. Its not FREEZING, but the wind is really nasty and the snow is making the visibility really really bad. Its also polishing up the roads nicely and folks are having a heck of a time driving. The news has been about nothing but accidents today. Ken has to be out driving all day today and I just hate that. Hope all the nutjobs stay far away from him.

I don't mind the snow, pds, usually. Tonight I was supposed to have a class but it was canceled. So, today I don't like the snow.
