I took this...

while running on 3 hours of sleep and exhausted with worry.
I blame that...

Your Score: French Bastard

You scored 50Worthiness!

You're the French bastard. You have no idea whats going on, but you can taunt the hell out of anybody.

"I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough whopper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of eldeberries. Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time-a!"

I just hurt myself laughing at the Babylon 5 mashup. Unfortunately, they've disabled embedding, so you'll have to actually go to YouTube to get it.

Do *NOT* have food or drink in your mouth while watching this. You have been warned. My keyboard paid the price to bring this warning to you...

And because it was fun...

In honour of tomorrow....

Talk Like a Pirate Day!

My pirate name is:

Mad Ethel Cash

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You're musical, and you've got a certain style if not flair. You'll do just fine. Arr!

If you take the quiz, leave me a comment so I know your name too :)

Rant Warning

What is it with people trimming their nails in public? I just don't
get this. I'm not overly prudish. Very few things people do offend
me. But I'd like to think I was brought up with some manners. And
I'd never consider doing that in public. And recently I've noticed a
trend that's driving me nuts! Apparently, it's become totally okay.

Take the last time I was out shopping for clothes. While waiting for
Becky in the changeroom (she found a *gorgeous* dress) at Macy's on
Labour Day, a woman came and sat down beside me, pulled out her
keychain and started trimming her nails with the attached nail
clippers! And left all the bits scattered all over the bench! Given
the fact that she even keeps a clipper on her keychain, I don't doubt
this is a regular thing! It just turned my stomach. Hell, I give
Brian a hard time if he doesn't clean his 'bits' out of the sink at
home! There have been several other times recently where I've noticed
people doing this. Like at the Dr's office a few weeks ago. And now
this morning, I'm sitting here at my desk at work listening to a
coworker trim her nails at her desk. I couldn't imagine doing that at
work. I'm all for good hygiene folks, but please! Have some decency!

Rant mode off...

Welcome Baby Boy Taylor

My sister had a little boy today. They're both doing okay, he's 6lb 5oz, and that's all I know! I had a quick call from my brother that he'd had a text message. I've tried calling the house, but I'm not surprised to find out that Rob's not home to give me the more information I'm dying to hear! More updates as I get them.

I *hate* waiting

I'm waiting for more information related to that good news I can't
post about. And it's killing me. I have no patience. None at all.
And I won't be able to get any information for hours yet. But I know
it's happening right now and I'd give anything to be a fly on the wall
to watch. But I can't. Instead I'm stuck here at work trying to look
like I'm concentrating on what I'm doing. But I'm not. Because I
have no patience.
Waiting sucks!

No, that's not it...

After several email enquiring, let me concretely state that the
exciting news is *NOT* that we're expecting. I'd be shouting that
from the rooftops!

I've got more great news....

I mean huge, earth shattering (to us), wonderful news. Awesomeness even. But it's a secret to someone who reads this blog. So I can't share. But when I can (in a month or so), know that I've been bouncing since then!

We got them!!!

Our receipts from immigration that is. Finally...
Our application was delivered on July 2nd.
Ours and about 150,000 others. So it's taken until now to even get
the receipts that they did receive our applications. So, hopefully,
it won't take too long for Brian's work papers (EAD) and our travel
papers to arrive.
Keep your fingers crossed everyone!!!
