Like seriously, I am so addicted to Project Runway that exactly 9:55pm I am turning off my cell. Not taking calls.

I am backing Irina but Althea has some tricks up her sleeve. It's going to be tough tonite.

This is appalling :mad:

To me, today, that kind of makes sense ....so worn out from moving house and Christmas and big meal and big bottle of wine with family - I can accept any theory :D

But surely John Denver's birth was after peanut butter? ah nuts :)

You can interpret the axes any way you want! Even backwards. That's the beauty of this graph.

Live webcam of a very relaxing place. This is of monkeys who live at a hot spring in northern Japan, and it's real. Sometimes I wish I were one of these monkeys. :peace:

Lovely :) Thankyou for the link. Just how the heck would you ever get out of there and forage for some food??

Grow a beard and the monkeys may let you in.

For all the non--pro's lurking in here, check out the thread in the Pro Chefs Forum on "Stupidest Things" - it's a riot. We can't comment in there, but geez its funny.

2009 was a rough year for me. I was employed a total of less than 3 months. I'm still unemployed.

Part of it was bad timing for a career change. I worked in manufacturing at Hewlett Packard for 17 years. Then I got laid off from there in '05, went back to school and started a new career, heating and air conditioning service. When the economy went bad I got laid off due to lack of work, and now I'm a relative newbie in HVAC competing with a lot of more experienced people who are also looking for work. The manufacturing jobs, what I'm a lot more experienced in, are so hard to come by.

Now I'm hoping for a temp job in manufacturing, with a lot less pay and at a lot lower level than what I did, at the same HP plant I worked at for so many years. I'll be happy to get a job like that. It sure beats no job at all.

I hope my frustration with my work situation, which affects my life in a lot of ways, hasn't made me less fun of a person here. But I think it probably has. I'm sorry if I've been a downer or been rabid. This is a great site with a lot of great people.

Let's get out of the blues and have a little laugh...

The bath tub test....

During a visit to the mental institution, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be committed.

"Well," said the director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket, because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.

"No." said the director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

Lol my niece told me that one just today!
post #238 of 304
You may be unemployed but you are not unemployable, so don't beat yourself about it...you'll find something you love doing one of these days, not because you have to do it (that too!) but because you enjoy it...you are still alive and you can do something about it too if you want so don't lose hope. My family and I will pray for you...

And here...is a good Advice: Live your life like a dog...(though not neccessarily like so...)

If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout ... Run right back and make friends.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

And never trust anyone until you have sniffed their butt.
--o0o--

OK, Buddy???:smoking:
