Well, that was a fun 12-hour day everyday since Saturday work week. And I may have to go in tomorrow, as well. Time for a little shut-eye. Happy 11/11/11 everyone! bounce

I celebrated Guy Fawkes Night last night; there is nothing quite like burning the effigy of a catholic to bring the family together. It is a strange custom that gets more and more sinister as I mature. Fortunately I am a man and we don’t mature too much.
lol!

My niece loved the fireworks. She is only 18 months old and now knows where the moon is, next up; The Cassiopeia and Andromeda constellations. We’ll make a stargazer out of her yet. Laughing

I hope everyone is well. Very Happy

For those of you who have to do this, don't forget to set your clocks back one hour tonight.

I just got out of work. I have to work tomorrow as well. At least I'll get an extra hour's sleep... Sleep

Hey, nice Twister dress. I had no idea those were made.

I haven't played Twister in about thirty years. If I tried now I wouldn't just be sore, I would be hospitalized. Razz lol!

Who else used to play Twister? It's an awesome game, though I just wish my body didn't become sore afterwards!

Ohoho, I was actually 86 until yesterday.

October was a busy month for me for me as well but I am getting by. We all do somehow. Smile

It's great to see you again, Louisa.
Actually, October was way TOO long for me, but that's only because I spent the majority of the month cramming for probably the most important exam of my life (so far). That was on the 20th. Sooner or later, at some arbitrary date, I will begin to study for next year's exams. But for now, I'm just taking some time to pursue things that interest me.

Of course, I'm also looking for extra teaching jobs. Once I find enough, I'll probably begin to study....

I must have missed you 80th birthday...
:p

Just so you guys know. I hope to be back on here soon, when things cool down for a bit. (Look for Thanksgiving and Xmas break!)

.... and that's my 1000th post! WHEEEE! Very Happy

We'll miss you, Lilli, but we understand you need to take care of your workload. And we look forward to you coming back! Very Happy

"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is one of my absolute favorite short stories. Any movie or story that has a "twist ending" owes a dept of gratitude to this Ambrose Bierce work.

I remember you suggesting Bierce a few weeks back. I finally got round to reading “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” on Sunday; Thanks Paul, I really enjoyed this piece, it was right up my street Very Happy

Yes, that's what I learned from last year. Stress+pain+suffering=good grades. I clearly need to be committed. cyclops cyclops cyclops

It's good to hear you're not a murderer yet, Lilli. Though I fully understand how work overload can tempt you to become one. Twisted Evil

Well, I finally broke down and got myself a snow blower. After years of breaking my back and risking a heart attack shoveling snow, I figured it was time.

I've been busy studying, although I will have more time to visit this site and read (hopefully) after my exam on October 20th. I do hope to work more after that, and continue studying just to keep myself occupied until I get into university (next year).

I agree, Paul. Life is way too hectic nowadays. A boring life means that I would have the time to read every novel I've ever wanted to, and that can't be bad. Wink
God, I feel old. Time to hit the nightclubs textbook notes and dance study late. cup

I'm glad the premiere went well, Laura. And I hope the complication un-complicates itself. At my age a boring life is a happy one.

Here's a hug for you too, Lilli: huuuug You are one of the most intelligent and capable people I know, and I know you will come through your mid-terms with the proverbial flying colors!

Sometimes I work Sundays too, Ben. Fortunately for me those don't come around too often. I hope you get a pay differential for working Sunday hours!

Take care, all. Very Happy
