I just re-read this. You put the bowl in the fridge, I first read it that you put a bowl in the freezer. I tried putting a cup in the fridge under where there's a hole leading from the freezer and all the water missed the cup. Maybe I just need a bigger receptacle. Although I really should just have a fridge that works right and this shouldn't be happening.
I put up with this for almost a year, just because I didn't feel like dealing with the landlord. Then my stove up and died and I *had* to call him. Got a new stove AND a new fridge out of it. j/s

Look at you, taking hand-outs like the very scumbags you so revile. Oh well, no one ever accused you of being consistent.
Number one, I never said I revile scumbags who take handouts, number two, you bet your @zz I'm gonna take advantage of whatever I can get. I've been paying into the system for dam near twenty years.

They re-open the mall today, it's been closed down since the shooting. Aside from weather and sports, it has been almost the only thing on the local news since it happened.
Today is my last day for the year with the young man I care for. His mom is off now until the seventh of January, so I get a full three weeks vacation.
May take the new house out for a test run and visit our friends in Seattle & Tacoma, as long as the weather holds to just cold and rainy.
I think that sounds like a great idea!('.')

Twenty years? Aren't you like 30? So you were a child in Dickensian London then?

Oh, that's right, you've voiced support for tax-funded programs that support the jobless and disadvantaged. My apologies, I guess I had you confused with someone else.

I'd like to get my hands on that twatwaffle for a few hours, see how THEY like that.
Because I would SO give them a reason to cry, and then some.

Last time I checked, workers do not pay into the unemployment funds, employers and governments do. Not employees.

Yeah, I knew that. Just him saying he's paid into "the system" (or anything for that matter) for 20 years struck me as odd given his age and everything. <shrug>

SO I get home last night and open my mail, b/c one looked like a check through the window. It wasn't. It was a collections notice saying that i owed them $18K and change for four different student loan accounts.(I've never had a student loan.)

I just moved, and my mail is still being forwarded, but this had my new, correct mailing address.

I called and just told them what I'd gotten and that it wasn't mine. She said "is your birthdate 3/31/something?" NO, it's 2/5/68. "are the last four digits of your SSN ####?" No, it's ()#). Oh, then it's our mistake, we'll take it off, you shouldn't hear from us again.

ME: That's all it takes? You'll take my word for it that this isn't me? I mean, it's not me, so I don't have any worries, but it's just that simple?

She laughed and said yup.

I think I'll be checking my credt reports soon.

I make a distinction between those who abuse the system and those who legitimately need help to get back on their feet. Contrary to popular belief, conservatives are not opposed to helping those in need.

In light of the Connecticut shootings, I will NOT renew the gun control discussion.
I do think we should re-open the insane asylums and lock these sob's up before they get near a gun.

My bias is that I live in Hubbard Woods and I was home the day of that school shooting.

Damn!

No amount of gun control would have stopped that insanity. I head the shooter is dead (yay), but my heart really breaks for those parents. I just cant imagine how their lives are shattered. Think about it, going home, seeing the presents you have for you child under the tree.... I would lose it.

27 dead so far, most are children.

This may be the first time a mass shooting has made me cry.

I can't read anymore about it now that I know that so many kids were killed. Last I heard, it was just a teacher wounded.

I don't want to cry at work.
