Yep still here and trying my best to wear out the mouse instead of the bed. I ususally have a hard time sleeping after one of those days where I crash (not in the literal sense of the word). The darkness and silence of the night is very calming to me.

I have a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but I think it is fun to decide what one would do.
The situation: You are in the Middle East, and there is a huge flood in progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and structures destroyed.
Let's say that you're a photographer and getting still photos for a news service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes.
You come across Osama Bin Laden who has been swept away by the floodwaters. He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under. You can either put down your camera and save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of him as he loses his grip on the limb.
So, here's the question and think carefully before you answer the question below:
Which camera angle and lenses would you use?

I have zero energy to do anything. I have been opening PSP only to close it right down more times than I care counting, but I just don't have the spark anymore. Lately I have been finding myself just sitting here staring into nothingness, not hearing any of what's going on around me. *sigh* I really need something to happen soon. Unfortunately we won't be able to make anything happen until December 1st when we know whether or not Bob will get sacked or he'll be a lucky one who get to stay in his job. I think it's all the stress of the last month and the next couple of months which have made me feel physically sick the last couple of days.
Santa better show up with something really good for christmas.

I found out that in immigration cases souch as the one Dh and I are going through, the INS doesn't send out any NOA's. This means that we'll have no clue about our case until we get letters about fingerprinting, medical and the final interview. It is going to be so much fun sitting here waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting.

Two months and not any sign of life from Nebraska. I wonder if they are still there or if they're just working on an extremely slow pace. I probably outh to formulate a couple of q's about the pace of INS and have DH send them to our congress critters. Something is not right here. K1 people (Fiancee visas) can get the whole process from first application to greencard done in a couple of months.

Darn Looks like Topcities is about to go down the drain. They've been offline more than online lately. This might just be the time for me to pull my sites offline for good . :(

IT'S A BOY Yesterday my dh's brothers gf gave birth to a bouncing baby boy weighing in at 6 lbs something. We haven't got all the datails yet, but there is nothing as refreshing as new life in the middle of all the happenings lately. :) Now we're waiting for Crissy whose duedate is in December ( couple of days on either side of Christmas Eve).

I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm too human for my own good :(

God have mercy on us all, because I have the feeling this is going to get nasty before it's over.

I must be doing something right with the diet and the exercise I'm getting under my belt. :) We were out clothes shopping today because I needed pants which doesn't fall off me when I walk. When I got home and tried the pants on again (yes I always try the stuff on when I get back home) I discovered that the pants was not a womans size (or how it's measured here) but a petite version of my chosen size. :) That was an even greater pat on my back. *doing a little dance of joy* I still don't know how much weight I have lost (Remember we don't own a scale) so I'll have to wait for my next docs appointment to find out. Just cross your fingers that I'll keep being a looser (in the good sense).
