New Jersey seems to like calling me…

December 31, 2008

Got ANOTHER weird phone call from New Jersey: 1-973-406-2024, anyone? Raymond almost gave me a heart attack (AGAIN) when he started a conversation with me through Gmail chat. I’m going to have to bug him about that later, haha! Talked about his brother Albert, Nate’s plans tonight, wine, diapers changing your NYE priorities from clubbing, […]

Apartment rejection / Quintuplets!

December 31, 2008

Why am I up so early? I blame my upstairs neighbors being louder than usual when going through their morning routine… that, and the weird noises I keep hearing which sound like the heater! (hope it’s not the MICE again!) Rejected a possible apartment because it wasn’t central enough… I should probably have taken it, […]

Post #4900: Let’s wear togas to the wedding!

December 31, 2008

Post #4900 – only 100 away from 5000! Earlier today, I got a weird phone call from New Jersey: 1-732-526-0154, anyone? Via Gmail chat, I learned that Raymond also wanted to give up in our current Wordscraper game. However, I won’t permit him to do that. He’ll just have to rack his brain for 100-point […]

Razzle-dazzle! / BAD COHO!

December 30, 2008

At least my last commenter did what he said he would. Andrea called me later in the afternoon, and we were off to Chuck’s with a detour at her place so she could pick up some pepper and change out of her wet clothing. Stepping in slushy wet puddles is definitely not a good thing! […]

Crybabies and Christmas cards!

December 29, 2008

Bingo of the day so far: CRYBABIES (100 points) – against Alice P. High-scoring word of the day so far: CRYBABIES (100 points) – against Alice P. [bingo; 2W] Got a weird phone call from New Jersey… 1-908-394-6094, anyone? I have six Christmas cards in my mail today – I won’t mail my own late […]

We WILL make plans for the shindig and New Year’s Eve!

December 28, 2008

LJ and Blogger were not working as expected earlier. JG added me to Facebook – hey, at least I know who she is! Called Andrea to see if I could arrange transportation to Chuck’s shindig tomorrow. I don’t mind being there early – she has to confirm things with Johnny first, but it should be […]

Dream: Blackberry porter on roadsigns

December 28, 2008

Decided not to go to church today because of the snow / slush conditions outside, so got some lovely sleep instead. Talked to Raymond for a bit over Gmail as well just now about marinated spareribs with Coke / Pepsi, plus Australian red wine. (it’s for Chuck’s shindig tomorrow – he wonders if that’s acceptable […]

I am a responsible (if jealous!) adult / Name generators galore!

December 27, 2008

I’m jealous of certain people and their gifts! UGH! Since I am a responsible adult, I decided to check the status of my various bills, and sign up for electronic billing where appropriate. Good thing, since my phone reconnection fee wasn’t on my last bill! Now I am finally free of the money problems created […]
