Thank you bargoo - 'twould be a rare man who forgot such an important date.

For those who don't celebrate, apparently it's a swell time to get a good table at an exclusive restaurant that would normally be booked solid. Or so it was said in my newspaper, although I wonder how they could find that out. Since everybody who eats is watching the game. And eating.

Did I mention that the local team is playing?

Today shall be a peaceful and quiet day at home. I refuse to go almost anywhere on drunken amateur nights. I absolutely refuse to let my girls go anywhere at all. My 21 more years of defensive driving experience means I am the one to go to the store or whatever in case of emergency. No going to the bars or whatever to watch either. This is Wyoming and a fight will break out.

We "cut the cable" when we moved back home and are living quite nicely on NetFlix and whatever streaming we need, so no Big Game at our house and we don't miss it. It was kinda strange at first not having the TV running mindlessly in the background at first, but we adapted fairly quickly. You have to actively choose a program to watch when the show you are watching is over or the TV just sits there doing nothing. Best part is you watch an "hour" long program in about 35 to 45 minutes because you aren't constantly having commercials forced on you.

My kids are also becoming more interested in documentaries and PBS type, thought provoking programs. I used to get the eye rolls and "Oh gawd, Mom" when I watched them. Now, they are the ones who say, "Hey Mom, you wanna watch ..... with me about the history behind .....". My youngest was even told she had to help with the other students in her Government class because she was way ahead of the others after she took the initial "See where the class is at" test the first day. She almost got into a fist fight with a kid in class that kept blaming the president for something that wasn't an executive power to institute. It was Legislative(Congress' job). Then she came home and did a little research and found out that the policy wasn't even instituted during that particular presidency. It was begun BY THE CONGRESS during the previous term. That's MY BABY right there!!! Smart enough to know what she's talking about and willing to kick yo' a** if you argue with her without the facts to back it up. :D

Awfully quiet in here today. I guess Bill is in mourning, my condolences, Bill.
What I find interesting after SuperBowl is the media coverage. There is more coverage of the Patriots than for the winners the Giants.

These people can't just stop for minute, think about what they are going to do and get a plan together before they all do it....all at once....without consulting each other on what they are doing. Then, once they have jacked each other over and have made the simplest tasks odious and reedunkulous, they go off and b***h about each other for weeks like a bunch of nattering, old hens. Then, they think I wanna hear all about, repeatedly, over and over again, as if I wasn't even there in the first place. :headache:

I come back an hour later and have 3 guys on man-lifts at the hall entry...and 4 f'n buckets of taping mud/water AND a radio...which is NOT allowed on a job where we are in the same showroom as the guys/gals trying to sell Mini-Coopers!!!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Working from home today, waiting for the furnace repairman. Our furnace decided to romance Murphy, and destroyed its motor 3 months out of the 10 year warranty at some point Saturday night. We woke up to a 48-degree house! :mad: DH stayed home yesterday - the tech came, completed the diagnosis, and then was given the wrong motor (1/2 hp vs 1 hp). And of course, the right motor was nowhere in the state. :dizzy: Hopefully, today is the day.

Just got some insider information that I may already be on the list of upcoming hires for a really great job that I interviewed for last Friday. I was one of only 50 interviewed out of about 900 applications. The guy is going to try to get a closer look to make sure and get in touch with me next week. I thought I blew the interview because I am so Safety conscious that I thought it might have turned the interviewers off but he said that it was a good thing because that's how they are out there and really don't want people who will skirt the rules just to Gitter Dun.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up in case he read the wrong list or actually saw a different name, but, this job could really make a big change in my family's lives and get us on the right track. Plus, I would be a miner again and back where I belong. Also, if I were able to get on the blast crew eventually, it would be even more technical and precise than what I was doing last time.

I really want this job!!!!! Oh please, oh please, oh please...........:crossed:

Read the paper then did a little work paperwork I didn't finish last night...

Second service today since Angie is playing bells in that one I really feel lost waiting until 10:30 for church...makes the afternoon short for me...

I'll be pulling for you. When will you find out ?

Operator265
02-19-2012, 10:02 PM
Nobody knows, Bargoo. My "inside" contact is gonna try to check it out and get back to me next week. The company, however, is well-known for taking FOREVER. I went to the initial intake Oct. 5. They sent me an email Dec. 24 saying that I was moving on to the next round and they would get in touch "after the holidays". Didn't get a call until Jan, 22. Well, that was "after the holidays". A looooooonnnnnnggggggg time "after the holidays". At least it felt like it to me.

My insider tells me they need at least 5 people for the position described to me in the middle of March. Thing is I'm not sure if they would want me for the position they described or one that is higher or lower. I have a helluvalot of experience on both sides. I can't imagine they would want someone with my equipment and blasting experience for a janitor, but who knows.

I'm sure they want women. Here, in WY, women aren't wanted to fill quotas. That's already been done. Here, they've found out the women tend to be better employees and actually seek us out ahead of guys. And, as it turns out, I said all the things that they like about us chicks. And to find a woman with the type of experience I have is pretty freaking rare. Plus, many of the folks out there know my X(a 30 yr. professional miner and Mine Rescue Professional) and how much influence we have on each other, which is a plus.

I'll let y'all know if the insider gets in touch and I will DEFO let you know if I get the official word. Heck, it will be all over the internet if MissTNT(thanks, EZ, I've taken that as my online ID since you started calling me that) gets back to where she belongs.

I've got the day off. Everyone at work loves it but I don't. I'm a temp, so I don't get paid and I have a lot to do since I just barely got myself trained to do the job and there is all kinds of stuff I need to catch up on so when the girl who regularly works there doesn't come back to a big ol' mess. I worked there 10 years ago and my best friend still does and it is still just as big a joke as it was back then. I swear she has the patience of a saint to stay on.

Sounds like fun BARGOO! We are thinking about going to the microbrew 1/2 mile from us today...an Itailian food truck from San Diego will be there...

depends on what time the son is bringing that GRANDdaughter by for us to play with.

All went as usual with my boss yesterday. He called my brother the night before to see how mad I was ...lol...He tried to keep his distance when he came to the job but I dragged him in to show him what I had been trying to get him and the project manager to look at for weeks....

he just said he was sorry for not "communicating" back to me as needed and, as usual, hoping I would make it go away like I always do. Oh, I made the problem go away...it just cost them more than they planned!

Ruthxxx
03-04-2012, 09:00 AM
What's the opposite of ethnically diverse? Is it incestuous? Anyhow I was at a wedding reception last night and think 3/4 of the folks there had the same last name! The food was the usual country "lunch" - cold cuts, potato salad and sweet cole slaw. Good thing I went for the wedding pictures, not the food. hope your meal was more satisfying, Bargoo. Around here you are considered weird if you use fresh garlic!

Gary, good for you in standing up to Boss Man. I bet that's not the first time you've done that!

What's the opposite of ethnically diverse? Is it incestuous? Anyhow I was at a wedding reception last night and think 3/4 of the folks there had the same last name! The food was the usual country "lunch" - cold cuts, potato salad and sweet cole slaw. Good thing I went for the wedding pictures, not the food. hope your meal was more satisfying, Bargoo. Around here you are considered weird if you use fresh garlic!


Down here we just call those folks kissin' cousins, Ruth!

Gary, good for you in standing up to Boss Man. I bet that's not the first time you've done that!

No, her sisters' names are Mercedes and BMW. Seriously!! They live here.

When my youngest was in grade school, there was a set of twins in her class named Porsche and Mercedes. Their mother told their father that he could name the next child too, but that he couldn't name her after a car this time. So, the smart@ss named her Bailey Marie and since their last name began with a "W", her initials are "BMW". Mom didn't notice until it was too late.

One reason why we weren't too excited (a feeling Angie and I and my ex and a whole bunch of other family members kept to ourselves) about my first GRANDdaughter being named KAIA....we thought it would be confused with KIA...

When I asked my son says they thought about it but weren't too concerned...we will just explain it's a long I and a short a for KAIA not an e sounding i and a short a like Kia...

We NOW love KAIA FAITH just as much as we love CLAIRE ELAINE....

However when we told my mother in law her new great GRANDdaughter was Claire Elaine she said..."Finally! a real name!

Now our family awaits the birth, in a few months, of Skyleigh....Jet's little sister....

don't ask.....

The key issue for this thread is to let one of the Gentlemen make post number 500, i.e. the last post before a Mod closes the thread, therefore the "Thread Killer." It all started as an innocent discussion about that feeling one can get when no one posts after them - the Seinfeld moment, "I killed the thread."

That said, there are rules:
RULES
1) The gentlemen on the thread are to be respected as the sensitive, feeling human beings they are.
2) Profanity and adult subjects are to be limited due to the sensitive gentlemen beings who might get the vapors.
3) NO ONE, EVER, is to cross da Operator as she is legally, as certified by the United States Government, allowed to blow thing up.
4) Sophisticated intelligent comments are always expected. This is not a low life thread.

:D Well, back in the olden days this was true....

EVIDENTLY!....with menopause issues and my snoring THAT is a thing of the past....;)

I'm not saying we have separate bedrooms but Angie usually starts the night in my bed then ends it in her yoga room bed :)

Gettin closer to finishing the house...

moved flooring to a week from Monday on a small cabinet delay...

allows me time to install new doors before floors though so that is good.

. . . 270 to go

<sigh> . . . folks seem to be having conversations and enjoying one another's company.

Let us not forget, closing this thread is the only thing. Ya know, like winning if you're Bear Bryant.

Proceed.

I spent the weekend with my 2 DS who were both having birthdays and baby Faith was celebrating her one month birthday. And food, miles and miles of food. And then there was Maggie, Maggie is my son's dog, a sweet girl but she does look like she has been put together by a committee, she has a German Shephard face and tail, a chow tongue and the rear quarters of a chow but she is loveable and smart and has successfully trained her humans to do her bidding.

EZ, you better be careful, or your DW will see you disparaging her color scheme (o:

Bargoo, did you know there are over 20 breeds of dog that can have black on their tongue? Everyone knows about chows, but I remember that list also includes flat-coat retrievers, german shepard, akitas (probably because I have owned each of those breeds during my life).

Oh, I have no problem telling her to her face! I'm much taller than she is :)

I'm not afraid of her :)

Not sure why I keep waking up in the morning with these bumps on my head though.....


Spending part of the day here moving an heating and ac vent for the crown mold around the cabinets and maybe try to fix the mistake the stove installer made :mad:

Got the kitchen sink in and dishwasher before Angie got home yesterday so that was good :)

Working again tonight to pay for my day job ;)

"Are you serious?! You just texted me?"

"I knew you wouldn't answer my call"

'I didn't think you knew how to text"

"I'm just learning"

"What do you need?"

"You to call me in the morning before you go to the Lexus"

"I'll text you"

"Call me"


"I'll think about it"

"***hole"

" :D have a good rest of your evening Chief"

Last night's 8pm text fest between my boss and I :)

EZ - in the words of my dear departed husband "A mental midget!"

Been horribly busy and a tad stressed so looking forward to a peaceful Sunday afternoon before I leap into the fray again tomorrow morning.

If I have to work this hard, I should get paid, right? "Great will be your reward in heaven" just doesn't cut it!

Yep Ruth, but if you didn't do what you do...

you'd have so much free time we'd probably find you...

drinkin' and runnin' wild in the streets at night...

not that that would be all bad.
