I called the high school in the county back home that has a program for deaf/hard of hearing students to see if I can do observation there over the break. I'll be excited if I can. I'm hoping I can observe in the total communication classroom!

Roadie, I can safely say that wasn't me. I was bidding on a fixer-upper American Girl doll (I want to redesign it into a character. A male character). Actually, I got a lot of people on a doll collector message board in a tizzy over that (they saw the pics and deemed the hair "too nice to cut" and therefore I'm a rotten person for doing it).

I just mailed off Christmas presents to my family in California. I also wrapped everything for the in-laws (who are not arriving until Thursday now!). I am completely done shopping, and once I have Starlet help me write notes to her teachers I'll be completely done with Christmas present-related stuff. There are even a few little things left over for the last minute "emergencies" that seem to pop up each year.

I'm very pleased that I stayed on budget and I was able to find thoughtful presents for everyone on my list.

Ouch, Elphaba. I also got a paper cut on my cornea once. It happened when I turned the page while reading the newspaper.

I drove myself to the doctor who gave me ointment and bandaged my eye. I then had a very scarey drive back to work with no depth perception.

If you go to the doctor get someone else to drive.

I NFBSKing hate Internet Explorer! I am doomed to use this piece of NFBSK at work, and I have had it up to here with it! Even pages that are "optimized" for use with IE look like NFBSK in it. And pop-ups. Holy God, the pop-ups are driving me crazy, not to mention the lack of ad-blocking and tabbed browsing (and no I can't download google toolbar).

Gaaaaaaahhhhhhh!

I had a really strange dream last night. I dreamt that my ex-boss and I had to go to Sacramento for some kind of emergency meeting, and for some reason, my son came with us.

We got to the hotel, had no reservations, and I was really concentrating on my laptop, trying to get something *very important* done for whatever purpose we were there.

My ex-boss checked us in, carried our luggage up to our room, all the while I was typing away on my computer. We went into the room, and I sat down in the chair working away while he (ex-boss) put the bags into the closet. He then said something, which I didn't really pay attention to, and left.

I kept working away. My son took a shower, and came out and hopped into bed about 10:45. About this time, it dawns on me that there is only one bed and this futon-looking-thing. It also dawns on me that my ex-boss had mumbled something that I recall as "I'll be back around 11:00." Whaaa?

Seems we were all sharing one room, as that was all that was left at the hotel. Since my ex-boss was an older guy with a problem leg, I was trying to figure out how to neaten the bed back up so he could have it, finish my work on the computer, pull out the futon and get it made up, shower and get ready for bed before he returned, since I'm sure that's why he left - to give us some time and privacy.

Woke up with shivers from that one. Odd.

What does it mean? I mean, other than no more black tea before bed.

So I was ordering this clock for myself for the holidays (officially from DD, but she doesn't have a credit card). And on the same website, I came across this clock.

It amused me to think that someone, somewhere, would consider the second one just as perfect for them as I consider the first one for me. Infinite diversity. . .

I love the way you drop these little tidbits and then go away (so to speak) leaving us all going "What did she just say?"

Were you wearing the shirt at the time?

Yes! It's my friend's hedgehog, and I was holding him (the hedgie) while my friend was cleaning the cage. Hedgie was grumpy that night and bit me a few times, then started chewing voraciously on my shirt. He didn't put any holes in it, thank goodness.

But Hedgie has a habit of compulsively licking people, and we can't figure out why. My friend put a salt lick in his cage, and gives him specially-labeled Hedgehog food with occasional nutrient supplements. Yet he still can't stop licking the hands and faces of everyone who picks him up. He just started doing this in the last few months (he's almost 2 years old). Does anyone have experience with hedgehogs? Is there a reason he might be doing this?

Also, can anyone recommend a good way to cut down on a dog's gas output? I think I'm cursed with one of those dogs that's a perennial fart factory.

An update of sorts--

I've been on the new job for a week and a day now. I love it! The department has more structure than my old department, and there's no one trying to push their work off on me. I worked the weekend 2nd shift with my trainer in the ER triage area. All I can say is holy crap--people do some really stupid things! And certain cultures apparently like to fight as well, as I observed one girl who was attacked by her own mother, and another girl who came in with a most wicked black eye.

I fear that I made a dreadful mistake though in leaving my "old" department. I told them that if they had questions they could contact me. What I wasn't expecting was them to call me every NFBSKing day I've been on the new job with questions! I was asked today if I could "stop by after my shift was done tomorrow" to help my former coworker out with one of the computer programs. Yeah...right...there is someone who she can meet up with, and that's his actual job. It's not me!

I think they are realizing their mistake in getting rid of me. They are also realizing that I actually did not sit on my ass all day doing nothing, but I actually *gasp!* worked. I'm done with them. I feel that I was pretty generous with allowing them to call me on my new job the first week, but this is ridiculous.

Julia is adorable!

Mickey, I love the "magic nap button" on the clock you linked to.

The "Sensory Assault Alarm Clock" sounded horrifying to me -- I generally wake up to a clock radio at minimal volume, and sometimes the "click" of the radio turning on will wake me before the music starts. But I guess it's just perfect for somebody somewhere, just as "Peaceful Progression Alarm Clock" is perfect for me.

Give them a time limit for which you'll do this and insist upon getting paid for your time. When I left the organization I used to work for I gave them my end date (I gave 6 weeks notice when I was only required to give two) and told them I would be available to help out after that date but I would charge them a consulting fee. It's fine to want to help to make the transition as easy as possible for them, but don't let them take advantage of you.

Eukanuba dry kibble. No rawhide or consumable toys other than an occasional dog biscuit.

A few times a week I'll add chicken or chopped carrots to his food, but the gas does not seem to coincide with this. He does have a nasty habit of eating cat poop (and recently he's started eating other dog's poop) but he was a gassy dog even when he was living at the adoption center without access to anything but dry kibble.

Well, in theory, I could. However, all such customizations are cleared each evening when the system is backed up; even wallpaper has to be reset.

I suppose the proper thing to do would be to just not browse the internet at work. *chortle*

I was horrified to discover a spider on me this morning after my shower. It must have been on the towel, on the side nearest the wall otherwise I would have seen the beast. It wasn't a small one either, it's one of those horrible large ones with the thick legs and the huge body, although in this case I'm pretty certain it wasn't fully grown. It isn't going to get the chance to get any bigger either - after emitting what sounded more like a squeak than a scream I shook it off into the bath and applied hairspray until it curled up then I squished it with kitchen towel.

It's an improvement anyway - in previous times I would have gone through the ceiling. I'm still feeling like my flesh is crawling though. No naked arachnophobe needs to find a large spider on them before they've even had a coffee in the morning.

I hate it when spiders land on me, too, Cinnamon. No matter how much one tells oneself that they are harmless, the visceral reaction takes over.

We had a camel spider join us at a desert picnic the other day. Seven adults and eight children ran in various directions (including right into a bush filled with scorpions [Eek!] ). The only person not to flee shrieking in terror was Mrs Fizz, who preferred to have the beast scuttle over her boot rather than spill any of her champagne.

We got an email at work yesterday saying "Do NOT upgrade to IE7" and recommended using Firefox. We use Lotus Notes at work (a whole other rant, there) and evidently IE7 doesn't play nicely with the calendar in Notes. They sent out an email today saying if we had already installed IE7, not to uninstall it. I can just imagine all the fun the IT department has been having the last couple of days.
