Big time mixed feelings here. Bob is thinking of taking the overtime he has been offered during the christmas holiday. The money is good and we could use them, but it also means that we won't be going anywhere or see the family this christmas. I don't know if I should look forward to spend the time alone with Bob, even he'll be working, or if I should dread not getting out of the house much during that time and maybe feel even more lonely during those days.

Dishes done, laundry done, dinner done. Anyone mind doing the packing while I get some sleep?

Still need to do the dishes (ewwwwww) but at least the laundry is done. Just need to start packing stuff. Thank god we'll only be gone for a couple of days and don't need a whole lot. I'm so envious of the weather in Buffalo, NY and all the snow they've got the last couple of days. Guess I have to be patient and hope it'll come to Iowa too sometime.

I watched Emergency Vets on the Animal Channal tonight and have been crying my eyes out since. There is something about dying animals (specially cats) that really touches the heartstrings in a mighty way.

Murton Library by Paul, age 10
What's it like now?
It's like you're sitting in your won house. They give you half an hour on the Internet. You are allowed to rent four or eight books at a time.
What will it be like in 2150?
I think it will have been knocked down because it is already thirty years old.
What will librarians be like in 2150?
I think that they will be dead because they are already in their twenties and forties.

I was so excited about finding that link in my referrers yesterday and wanted to share with those I thought were my friends, but they surely showed who wasn't by plainly ignoring my news. :~( So much for finally having any news to share. Screw them.

Obviously someone is still reading my personal page. I didn't know about this one until I was going through my site counter and noticed that I've got a large number of hits from one site in particular. WOW I'm a little besides myself right now.

I am really living a very boring life. Get up in the morning, turn on the beast, do a little "housework", sends hubby off to work, waiting for hubby to get off work and finally go to bed when he is back home again. And the next day it happens all over again and the day after that etc. Every couple of weeks I'm actually lucky to get out of the house to go grocery shopping or if Bob and I go out for dinner.
You see I'm an immigrant to the US and while waiting for the whole process I can't do anything but playing a tourist and that is hard to do when you do not have independent transportation. Yes I could take another walk round the neighborhood, but I think they would call the cops on me if they saw me walking around the neighborhood one more time. No immigrants do not get pampered or get everything payed by the government. At least not all of us who just want to live a quiet life with our families and maybe hold a job to have some kind of independent feeling. But I cannot do that yet and I have no idea how many more years I have to wait. :(

Finally got my butt to the hairdresser today and now I almost feel like I'm bald. At least there's not a whole lot of hair left. Bob wanted to get his hair cut too, but he bailed out and said he needed the hair to keep his ears warm through the winter *g*

Owieeeeeeee we got some more of the toys we had ordered earlier this week, so now we're almost ready to start building the server and try to get it online. Bob had also ordered some memory for the old, old 486 who only had something like 12 MB in it. We just wanted to get enough to give it 32 MB because that machine are on it's last days of life, but the company threw in an extra stick so it now are running with 64 MB. Nice company. And they give you an excellent service too and are very fast at handling orders. :)

A few months ago I picked up a copy of the book "Hannibal" which is the sequel to "Silence of the Lambs". And for the first time I've never been able to read a book in one go like I normally do. This book is so filled of hints about what could and could not happen to Agent Starling while investigating the case of Doctor Lector. This is scaring the sh*t out of me and I cannot read more than a couple of pages at a time and specially not while I'm home alone. Still I cannot wait to see what they do about the movie. Hope they manage to catch some of that atmoshere.

I woke up this morning thinking I was in the middle of a retake of the original version of "The Exosist" and I was playing Megan. The whole bed was shaking. It turned out that Shadow was just having a moment of impersonating the devil himself while trying to kill all the bedbugs under the blanket and playing race horse at the same time. Of course now that I'm out of the bed she's looking totally innocent while getting her sleep.

There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we came to have an oil
shortage here in the USA. Well, there's a very simple answer ...
Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low.
The reason for that is purely geographical. All the oil is in Texas, Oklahoma,
All the dipsticks are in Washington, D.C.

If money and distance wasn't a problem I would do all my furniture shopping here. Just got the catalog today and I'm drooling. I'm also kind of surprised to discover that they still have items they had when I was a kid and hardly could look over the top of the kitchen counter :)

The two little critters have certainly perfected the art of staying in their carrier even if it's being turned upside down and there should be no way they should be able to stay inside. I don't know how they do but they did *g* I wonder if it has anything to do with them being at the vet for their booster shots?

What is it gonna take to make either one of them accept the result even though it might not be in their favour? Are we going to see recounts of the recounts of the recounts etc? And no I do NOT believe the poll that CNN and Time released saying that 63% of the Americans wants the president to be elected by direct election. Imagine what will happen if we get a close race there too. Then they will not only have to make statewide recounts but nationwide recounts.

Somewhere I saw someone arguing that Gore should win the election, because it would be best for Europe and rest of the world. Scuse me, but that is a load of bull sh*t. The USA, the president (whoever it's going to be) and the military is not supposed to be the worlds saviour and peacekeeper. Maybe it would be a welcome change to get a president who isn't so fast to send the military around the world and do tasks which the military has never been supposed to do.
Read the constitution, there is no mandate there.
Maybe it would also be a wlecome change that the rest of the world try to deal with problems on their own instead of calling on the help of the US everytime someone farts and it becomes too smelly.

They're still not done and the prgnosis says it won't be finished today either. This is going to go on and on and on and on forever and ever and ever, if you catch my drift. And now there's also talk about possible recounts in other states as well. Thank God it's not all stations which is covering the election. Funny enough a Danish newpaper called the US in general and Florida in particular, a Banana Republic and I could tend to agree with them.
