4. 'Cause it's *freezing* in here...
they set the thermostat so that it turns way down after 5 p.m. on Fridays, forgetting that there are people here all weekend, mostly at night. And by Saturday afternoon, it's COLD in here.

I s'pose we don't count.

7. Why do companies always put idiots in charge of managing the heat?

20. They believe....
mistakenly, I might add, that if you're cold, you'll work harder in an effort to keep warm.

What they don't realize is that it doesn't work like that!!!!

6. I'm 'switching' jobs with someone else for tonight...
because they need to have someone else who can do it in case I call off some day. So...usually I'm taking calls and faxes early in the evening and then putting it all together later. Tonight I don't have to put it all together.

Should be more relaxing -- less stressful.

So...why isn't it?

:shrug:

12. Maybe you are used to the higher level of activity.
For some folks that is more natural than working in a job that is more laid back.

No offense, people think I'm a man too. :P

13. None taken
When I first started to post, a lot of people thought I was a 'he'. Doesn't bother me.

Usually. Except for picture threads...then if someone mistakes me for a man, my ego might take a bit of a hit.

25. At least sheets don't take long to dry.
Now, get your tushie in gear and make the bed. It ain't gonna make itself, y'know. Hospital corners, too...

Have quarter, will bounce.

:hi:

:hug:

I've been busy...been a crocheting, knitting, stitching fool lately. In the past 10 days I've made a blanket, a teddy bear and I'm halfway through a sweater.

But my laundry's not done.

Oh well. It ain't goin' anywhere.

I hope.

33. That would be
my 9,000th post.

And the official answer is: 360,890, but that's just the metro area.

God, I hate saying that. Metro area. I can remember when there WAS no 'metro area'. When there was just Colorado Springs and there wasn't much of anything north of Austin Bluffs Parkway. Hell...back when Austin Bluffs Parkway was still Templeton Gap.

Sheesh.

31. Thanks CAPeggy. In fact, I just did notice that
and I've already sent a little pm out to someone who seemed to need it.

But you are wonderfully sweet to tell me so. Thanks a million!

28. As of this post
I'm still 1 shy of 9,000. This one makes 8,999

And there's no change from yesterday but that's okay. They're going to keep her pretty sedated until they can close her little chest so I don't really expect much before that happens.

Keep those good thoughts coming.

And you oughta be able to start a thread or post a PM by now, shouldn't you? I think I was doing both, well before I hit 70.

32. Sweet little girl.
My thoughts are with her and her family.

And I am able - it was, apparently, my post to you (thanks!) that put me over the magic number which must be 50.

She'll hang right in there, grandma! I'm glad to hear she's doing well.
