<quoted text>sucks. No new job yet. No word on when the hammer drops or what, if any , severance there will be. At least i squeezed some addotional training in. Had a class this week that was scheduled and paid for before the big announcement.
If there is anyone on here that sticks with things, it's you. You'll get a job. Probably a good one.

"My husband and I were married last May 11. My new brother-in-law is now engaged, and we are thrilled, although we do not know his fiancée very well. They have picked dates for both their engagement party and their wedding: May 11 this year and next year."

WEll, that's dumb. Because if you got married on May 11, 2012, on a Saturday, then their engagement party will be May 11, 2013, on a Sunday, and their wedding will be on May 11, 2014, on a MOnday. Who freakin' does THAT?

Check the calendar. LW got married on a FRIDAY. So BIL is having engagement party on saturday and wedding the following year on Sunday.

This makes me think of a Gnarls Barkley lyric from Crazy

"Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control"

I feel like saying to her

"Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think anyone gives a rat's ass when your wedding date was?"

Its like LW thinks that moving forward, this day is going to be a date that is celebrated by others and is upset that she will have to share that weekend with BIL. Bless her soul. Ain't that cute.
Pretty soon, she'll realize that her anniversary will be recognized by others with a greeting card or not at all.

Wow. What a group of letters. What is that chick THINKING about her brother? She's worried he's going to lose his kids? Maybe she shold be glad.

That whole date/wedding thing is weird. But I agree with Prudie -- no one ever really remembers someone else's wedding date.

I loved Prudie's instructions on how to address down that women in that guy's office. They have come out with stuff for dark circles recently that actually works, but I don't think it works THAT well.

My bro and SIL got married on September 3, 1979.

Our ister got married September 3, 1990 because it was Labor Day weekend.

Bro and SIL still married.
Sister and that husband are not.

Jinks!

I remember my sister's, but that's because several other things of significance happened to ME on that date. One occured before the wedding, so they're stuck together permanently in my mind.

But her's is the only one.

In case you haven't heard of this, two guys at work recommended this to me this week:

appsgonefree

You get 10 apps offered for free downloads each day, apps that normally cost money. Once you download them, you can delete them and redownload them later again for free.

End of month happy hour at the office. I'm buzzed on one nice sized bottle of Thistly Cross Whisky Barrel... which does not mix well with an IPA. Yuk!!

Now we're getting drunk on Thursday night!?

Taxes are done and I'm getting a whopping 5 dollars back from the state!(strange because I've always owed or broke even and taxes went up last year. Guess my last tax man was screwing me.)

Gonna have to hold off celebrating til tomorrow though! Some people have to work

Why would you delete an app and then download it again? Actually I dont even have one of those apps that read the square codes that are on everything now. What am I missing?

You delete the app to free up memory space on your mobile device.

I tried to say something about the 20% pay cut I'm facing and Topix said I can't call our Beloved Leaders anything derogatory. It wasn't profanity...I said clowns. But apparently, putting that word and the city in which they play their games in the same sentence is bad.

Apps are pretty small things though (but maybe with their data files...) Anyway, wouldnt you free up more space by deleting some songs and pictures?

If you download enough apps, it can make a difference. I just cleaned off a bunch of games I'd downloaded for nick's kids.
