"Empress and Eydie think transference. In my recent experiences, people transfer to you what they actually are feeling or thinking. That doesn't mean that you are what they think...actually they are what they think you are. ..." ~ Ceara

I love this quote, Ceara, and find it really helpful. In the aftermath of my experience with this particular friend-no-more, I'd more than once thought that how funny it was that all the things she accused me of were exactly the things she did herself! And, of course, you are right, some friendships can't and shouldn't be resurrected ... but in a sense, I still DO regret the friendship, that lasted more than eight years and involved a whole family, not just one person. I will never leave myself quite so vulnerable to that again and I'm glad of that ...

Am excited as an auction we posted yesterday sold in record time. At least, its a record for DH and me. It was a special edition by Joseph Campbell, an Atlas of Mythology... I know how much I admire Joseph Campbell but am especially thrilled that it went so well...
We listed a "Buy It Now" price that we thought had 1/2 a chance...evidently the odds were with us....

Glad we didn't sell ourselves short by underestimating!
Sometimes things do go better than we expect!!

Question of the day :
"Do you sometimes sell yourself short?"

Here we go Monday, here we go!
(I can't here you!)
HERE WE GO MONDAY, HERE WE GO!


KETTLE IS ON!


PS- Have lots of comments but not the time..... friendship is tough...
Judit Virost claims its always in flux, a "Love/Hate" issue ...even more than in a spousal relationship...
but I must go...sorry, not dressed or fed... !!

Yay, K, here we go Monday (sigh)! I love Joseph Campbell also and am happy your sale was so quick ... he was a lovely man with a lovely mind ... wish he were still here to write more books and do more PBS interviews with Bill Moyers!

Frogger, congratulations on only FOUR MORE DAYS o' the job!!!!! Dinna fash thyself, lass, I'm sure you'll get a call from the agency soon ... the crystal ball is showing a phone ringing in Fredericksburg and Frogger answering it with a smile on her face at the good new the call be bringin'!!!!

Later, s ... I'm much improved physically and need to get to gym then to mountains to work!!! Later ...

Question Um, is it Friday yet?

Sigh. 'Morning.

**wait a sec. I'm going for a cup of coffee...**

Ah. If only it were that simple. I'm trying not to sincerely regret a weekend spent doing nothing but reading a new fantasy novel. Nothing!! Wish I'd at least done the dishes and a load of laundry. I'll have one of those Monday nights now where I'll turn into the housework dervish just to give myself a feeling of control over my own home. Some haven it is now...garbage is starting to smell.

Never mind. I'm definitely well-rested. Uh, except for the fact that Simone (beloved cat) raced around the living room attacking sundry noisy things and keeping us awake. Then Ramon and I got to talking (at 1am, in case you're curious), which turned into one of our marathon tussles - we have a contest to see who can get inside the other's guard and tap their face the most times - I invariably end up shrieking with laughter and Ramon trying to shush me and laugh at the same time. So, I'm bleary-eyed but feeling well-loved this morning.

Amarantha, I'm glad you're feeling better this morning. You've struggled with that sinus thingy for a long time now! I'm agog that you keep exercising through it all. Being sick is my favorite excuse for not working out. Not a good excuse, I know.

Frogger, your song made me chuckle this morning. I'm so glad you're almost out of there. Don't worry, something good is going to break for you this week. I can feel it! So, are you rushing around, making sure everything's tied up for your colleagues, or are you sittin' back, hanging out at work with a severe case of leaving-soon-not-gonna-lift-a-finger-itis? I've done it both ways...

Kaylets, you've inspired me to try tofu scrambles! It's strange that I'm an aspiring vegan and I've never had one. Never mind. I've got some firm in the fridge and will try it tonight. Sorry about your bed covers, dear, though I'm envious that you have 50-degree weather in which to dry them! It's mid-forties right now and I'm freezing!

Ceara, thanks for your funny crocus story. That "bless his pointed head" nearly killed me this morning! Give your lil' head a rest, OK? And Wildfire, to add to Ceara's wisdom, even if your kids don't have kids, you still get your revenge. At the age of, oh, say between 22 and 26, they'll suddenly and inexplicably get hit between the eyes with how much of a selfish little pig they were as younger people and will spend the next 6 months or so falling all over themselves apologizing. It happens. Trust me.

**whiny moment** Everyone just got their bonus check except for me. I just hired on so I don't get one. Never mind. Next time.

Anagram, I'm glad the party went so well. You sounded like you worked really hard on it. I'm sorry that one of your "kitchen foster sons", as my mom calls my brother's buds, is struggling health-wise. It's wonderful, though, that he has a living donor. Thanks for telling us about it. It's a good reminder to me that 38 isn't so far away, and I'm looking diabetes straight in the eye soon if I don't get things under control. Why is preventative medicine so hard for us to grasp?

Arabella, I'm with you on thinking about the "fairness" of life. It isn't fair, and all to often it's unfair in my favor, though I'm not complaining. You know, it's so hard to be courteous sometimes, especially in the bigger city. That quote usually catches me up short before I turn into too much of a gorgon. Geez.

wsw, I'll betcha you're smack in the middle of moving madness. We're all here for you, honey. Do what you need to do and check in when you're sane again. Or not. Sane, I mean. You, too, Punkin, Zadie.

Love to all - sorry I'm not more amusing today...

Hello My Honies!
Just back from WI, bloodied but unbowed. Up a pound this week, but -- since I know I don't deserve it -- I'm sure it will be gone next week, taking a fluffy pal or two with it! Nevertheless, I'm going to try to be EXTRA careful this week to make sure. I haven't quite come to journalling points yet, but I've begun counting them in my head...

Cerise, I want to express my extreme gratitude that your message was --perhaps -- just a smidgen less scintillating than usual. You're always so very, very amusing that I, for one, sometimes feel drab and boring in comparison.

Speaking of which I feel quite brown sparrow-ish today in any case -- maybe it's the season...

Love to all!

Talking

Oh, I'm a corker, all right. Hah. If you think I write a lot, get on the phone with me and try to get a word in edgewise! Right, Punkin? No, actually, Punkin held her own...

Arabella, you're an awfully clever writer to be thinking you're drab. I think the Royals will weigh in and agree with me on this. You're funny and wise to boot, luv.

Cerise-Those that I care for here are getting the preferental treatment. Things are getting tidied up and notes are being written on where things are and how things go. Those that have stuck it to me can fend for themselves as far as I am concerned. BOOO on them!!! LOL

I forgot to tell you all about my waterworks last night at the second job. Some idiot man came in and someone on the phone gave him the wrong price. So when I rang him up, and gave him his price, he flipped out and called me a ******. Repeatedly. Then he turns to the other customers and tells them I'm a ****** and can't do anything right. I had to walk away because I burst into tears. I had one of the guys send for the manager and he went up there and covered for me whilst I balled my eyes out. What a jerk that guy was. Then my sweetheart of a manager gave me a big hug and told me I should have called him up sooner because he would have thrown that guy out on his ear. I did get a nice response from another customer once I had returned to my post. He said he didn't know how I had such patience. He would have reached over and punched that guys lights out. The nice customer had a talk with my manager and told him what went on and how rude the idiot man was. I hope the meanie never returns.

Anyway, I'm sitting here job hunting online when I should be doing other things. But I have 4 days to do that. I do have my interview with the temp agency on friday which I am all excited about. The only thing is that they will test me on my computer skills. I get so nervous with tests. Hope I don't totally screw up! Or vomit. (Just kidding)

Just a quickie....

I was putting a bag of ice in the freezer at work and felt something pop in the middle of my back. Grrrr... No mind-blowing pain or anything, just enough pain to be annoying and weird. I keep trying to stretch it out and its better than it was, I guess.
Rushing around getting things ready for the beach. Cleaning up the house for my brother who'll be pet-sitting while we're gone, bless him.
Ceara, thanks for your kind, wise words regarding friendship. I'm trying, I really am. The only solution that I can see is for all of us to buy a big tract of land and create the kingdom for real!
Frogger, I'm so glad that you have only 4 more days at that stinky old job. And a pox on that out-of-control customer. How weird is that? Sounds like he definitely made an *** of himself.
Arabella, once again let me say how lovely it is to have you back!

Okay, I have to keep moving, stretching out the weirdness in my back. Love to everyone!

Eydie- Have fun at the beach... are you gone all week? Hope this snow forecast is just that, only a forecast and then the rest of the week be exactly as forecast... High to mid 50's by this weekend.... You know what I'm thinking about!

Frogger- I know folks who register w/ many temp places.. in fact, one lady I know, would call each one every day during lunch to find out if they had any thing new... We were both temps but she was looking for permanent they knew her voice after a short while... she was always pleasant, gracious, sometimes even funny .... and it did turn around for her...
THIS MUCH I KNOW IS TRUE.... The sense of relief about eliminating this long drive will open up lots of other energy for you... You will be amazed at how much more time you have...
I just hope you will still be able to stop by and talk to us...

You'll be in all our thoughts, every day... Keep smiling...
Since your pizza manager is such a doll I think you know you are in a good place...

And regarding DH's black outs... the one way to know for sure if its the electrical work ...is to try... I think DH is wanting to step up and do the Good Dad thing... for both Mom and the tadpole...

Empress- YOU"RE IN THE 140's!!! doo dah ! doo dah!
Empress is moving on down to the 140's side of town!
YIKES!
how did I miss that??


Seems like I missed the crocus story too..


Oh well, we just go warned of we are virus infected.. or the computer is..
you know what I mean..
must run the software now so..

I will be back in the am...

Yo! Just a flybye as I'm really feeling ill now ... have an appointment with dentist Wednesday as thinking now I have problems in that area ... Eydie, sorry thy back hurteth ... I think thy idea of creating the kingdom for real is a good one ... but I'd never be able to join thee unless everyone agreed to move out of the frigid northland and into the desert ...

To all, there's so many agreeable posties here and I've read them all, I just have to eat something and go to bed. Posted my paltry menu on the food/exercise thread.

Avanti!

3 more days of demon job...
do da, do da
my commute last night was as 4 hours long..
oh the do da day...

(I can't think of another song to do it to)

Yup that's right, it took me 4 hours to get home last night. Blast it all.

Good morning everyone!! I am increasingly is a better and better mood as the days pass here. By thursday I'll be deliriously happy!

Just wanted to stop in for a minute, I'll be back around lunchie.

Eydi-I hope your back is better today. I envy you going to the beach. Wish it was warm enough here to go. I LOVE the beach.

Yes Empress....toothie problems could manifest as a sinus thing. They are all interconnected up there.

Backs are strange things...a friend of mine did hers in once by lifting a 12 c coffee pot...just the way we turn. I've become very conscious of the way I work since my desk is so not ergonomically correct....and I don't hold the phone between my head and my shoulder either...that is so bad! Hope you loosen up before you go Eydie!

That's OK on the WI Arabella...next week will be good. I think our bodies just conspire to hold onto everything sometimes...but when they finally let go we see results! Your plan of attack seems to be a good one!

Cerise! What was the novel? Have you read Eragon yet? And how lucky you are to be able to walk to work...at least on sunny days. I wish I could do that...but since it is a nine minute drive I think it would be a much longer walk! I have considered my bike...but am not sure about the sweat factor and working.....

Three and counting! Frogger!

Anyway gotta go....coffee is empty and need

tomorrow! Wear your green!

Quickie again and apologies for not answering specifics ... just going out to walk/run as the idea of the gym wearies me today ... wanted to say hi to all!

Since thou asketh for QOD, K, how about one that I've only recently realized has a deeper meaning that the image it describes:

"The fog comes on little cat feet, it sits looking over harbor and city and then ... moves on." Carl Sandburg (ellipses mine).

To all of us s feeling down or negative: the fog moves on.
