Is that this week or next week? When you emailed me, I was getting FLOODED. Thanks to FB, WaPo, and caring bridge, I have over 300 pages of emails in my in box.

If you want to email me again at hotmail, I will pay better attention and answer you tonight or tomorrow.

And now that I'm sick, I drink like a Baptist! ;)~

Whoo hooo! I got a new chair!!

I know, I know it's not really a big deal, but as a civil servant, we rarely get anything new so when it happens it can make a person a little giddy.

:D

I'd love to see snow but gah----so cold.

It is the little things.
I'd be happy with a projector that worked. When I am fired, the headline will read, "Veteran Teacher Pitches Computer Off Roof!"

In semi-related news, the fire folks trolled through looking for things to whine about: apparently, the cute little things I have hanging from the ceiling are a fire code, but attaching them to the wall is not.*blink*

overhead sprinklers, perhaps?

I've often joked that if our windows opened, we would be short a copier or two. A girl can dream though...

And I suspect Toj is right about the sprinklers.

It is snowing! I think it also will snow tomorrow, but it looks like it won't stick in the downtown areas. The northern suburbs and north of there likely will get some snow to stick.

If we get seven inches of snow, I doubt that there'll be more than an inch on the ground at the end of it.

Hee hee - the way the headline is phrased, it looks like it is a bill that will allow gay people to marry the governor.:D

Without in any way diminishing the importance of this bill, it is a deflection from the much much bigger problem of unfunded pensions and lack of budget constraints. Illinois has the worst credit rating in the US.

I am watching to see if they tackle that problem next

Yes, because gay marriage is MUCH more important than... I dunno... solving the 100 BILLION pension deficit problem?
