Actually after having children, it turns out I'm the one who keeps on giving.



Wouldn't trade it for the world though.

i don.t expect any christmas presents


but some people also cry about the comercialization of christmas!

Hi Orange, too bad you get a Christmas present anyway - our smiles and well-wishes. Plus all the virtual drinks you want.


I didn't mean to give you a hard time about the apostrophe-period thing -- and I was right, it was a German keyboard weirdness. On US keyboards the apostrophe doesn't require holding down shift. Personal strangeness - I know way more about world-wide keyboard layouts than any single person should...

Wow.

Could be both.

Of course...it could be neither as well.

hi ian,

i don.t mind.
since i am just chatting and influence you with my opions i will do as i did before, use the dot.
when i write something "official" like a debate, ha than i use the '.

international keyboard layouts that would be great, good idea.
you know at the position of the y on an german keyboard is a z and vice versus, but some other characters like / or [ etc are also different.
when i have to boot my mac in secure mode it switches to us-keyboad and than i am lost!

thanks for all the good wishes dear and virtual drinks
i think today i will buy a real bottle of wine and drink, if about 3pm ESZ/12am PST something strange with my posts will happen, its the wine than!

ex is very nasty today

I brought some snacks this morning for everyone.

The joy of chocolate meets the joy of Kentucky bourbon.

Yahoo, and thank you nyk! That is what I call breakfast! Although since I got out of the wrong aside of the bed at 3:30 AM, and clearly am going to have a terrible, truly awful day, I think I can call it lunch.

*grabs Ky Bourbon, pours it in a snifter to be fancy about taking it neat*

*pops a few chocolates, sips whiskey*

Double dipping, I like it!



I usually make my bourbon balls with quite a bit of bourbon, so they're usually too strong for a lot of people. I've actually known a few people to get a little tipsy after eating a couple.

Ooh!! Thanks Nyk! I was just wondering about Breakfast!!!

Gah. I just looked outside. Its not even 8am, and theres already a foot of snow (but not really beacuse I'm exaggerating because I'm overreacting about it). I want to cry. WHY did I decide to drive back to Alberta TODAY?

Freakin' Canada.

I wish what we got last night would have been snow.

Instead, we got about 2.5 inches of solid ice from the sleet.

Made my morning commute wonderful!

Eeeek!!! Ice is something I'm not so much a fan of!! How far is your drive back and forth? I know its just snow, and its the first solid snow fall this year...(all the rest usually melts by the end of the night) but since today its snowing it makes people on the highways paranoidal. Which means my drive is going to be a pain in the #.

Not like I'm the best winter driver, but I'm more familiar, then others, with the highway I take back home to my parents. Its a less popular highway and its usually only semi-trucks and logging trucks. Seriously I wish I could count how many times I've driven it in the winter. I despise being behind anyone when driving in the winter. It makes me nervous.

I don't have a real long commute at all. I think it's like 23 miles from my house to work, most of it highway.

The only issues I ever have are coming out of my neighborhood, which is a little off the beaten path. The ice builds up pretty good there, but once I'm out I usually don't have problems.

Must just be me though, because I passed the cleanup efforts of 3 wrecks this morning on the way in.

Ah 23 miles isn't too bad, but with the ice that sure makes for a longer ride. I don't miss the driving to work-asepct of being unemployed right now lol. I also used to commute to work back in Alberta about (25kms so less distance). It was, off the beaten path. A Hotel outside of town, privately owned, 40 rooms out in the country kind of place.

It used to get really icy at the end of the driveway that meets with the highway...then you drive accross 2 lanes to get to your propper lane. I used to hate when at midnight, I'd be on my way home and the road was covered. No way to see where the road started or ended on either side. Once it took me an hour and a half to get home.

They had 2 rooms set aside in the winterime for staff if they decided not to make the drive home. I had an overnight bag packed with an extra set of work clothes and all that stuff, but I never had to use it - thank god.
