Hilary using Streets =
Obama using City of Blinding Lights =

Don't know why, but it bugged me to hear Streets being used in a campaign.

I can see the temptation. Just make sure it has everything you want/need, if you do succumb. Price is not everything..........it is a lot of it, but not everything.
I know....I believe it does have everything I want, which is just a standard mac without any fancy bells and whistles other than a dvd burner.

I need to figure out how much I am getting paid a month from my new job. After my first paycheck I'll be able to determine if I can do this.

tomorrow is my very last day ever at LE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to be bad and where a shirt that's not on the approved list of things to wear :rebel: It's from the store but it's not allowed because it's too casual. I've always said if they sell it, we should be able to wear it. I'm also leaving early. There's no way I'm working the entire day there tomorrow. I'm too anxious about next week to stand in one spot for 7 hours.

cool, arw the rebel

What are the long term employment prospects of a pastry chef ? Do you plan on being somewhere for, like...... years?

Congrats on moving on & good luck!

depends on the place. A lot of Chefs stay put for years, just like any other industry. But most new Chefs in general move around a lot the first few years to gain as much experience as possible. I don't think I'd want to find a place and stay there for a long time. I'd get bored. My long term goal is to work in the field for a few years, hopefully in the resort industry, and then find a culinary school to teach baking and pastry.

Sounds like a good plan.
Figure out how to make really good low fat pastries I'll be your guinea pig

Phoenix sounds like a good place to start, with all their golf & resort hotels.

The big, bad weather warning for today and yesterday turned out to be a lot of nothing. So far, not even thunder.

I hate it when weather people overhype stuff

they asked if I wanted to leave early today. I thought I'd have to put up a fight on my last day. And.......they also got a letter from corporate for me, unrelated to my departure, that I just became elibible for 4 hours of personal time for my work in 2007. So I'll get paid a whole $36.00 extra next week

Nap time!

We overhype snow here. The weather people are all, "Hey, youz guys seen what happened in Wisconsin? Yeah, we're getting that and MOREZ!!!!!111!" and then we get 1/2 an inch of slush. And the best part is...they STILL believe the weather man and my coworkers tell people on the phone we might not make it in the next day.

In other news...
*My dad is doing great and got out of the hospital Monday. He turns a youthful 58 tomorrow. Thanks again for all the good wishes.
*I am stressed out about the show my new skating club is putting on Saturday. The president does a lot of talking but not so much doing, and I'm hoping it's not going to be a disorganized mess, and I'm going to lend some very helpful suggestions from someone who skated for the 4th largest skating club in the US for most of the 90's which featured a world-class synchronized skating program. If WFS could do it with 400+ kids and 6 synchro teams, SISC can do it with 50+ kids and 1 basic skills team.
*I'm not buried in snow, but I'm tired of being cold. Spring now, please?

why yes I was! No one said anything....I knew they wouldn't. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to be out of there.






I have to go to the dentist for a cleaning in about an hour. I'm just really not in the mood for someone to stick their plastic gloved hands in my mouth and start digging around with their annoying tools. There's going to be a little rumble with my dentist however......he's going to lecture me on my refusal to get my cavity filled or x-rays done. If he wants to pay for them then by all means have at it but until I get real insurance again, a cleaning is all they're doing to my teeth.
