Well back to another day of archaeological excavation.

It's been a nice short vacation... one more day to enjoy it!

DH and every other Englishperson I've asked absolutely can't stand peanut butter - how about you??? Your kids?
Peanut butter is hog nasty. gross stuff. Kids only rarely have it, too.

I really need a floor lamp for my living room. If you sit on the couch it is so dark you can't read. You have to sit in the special chair by the table lamp to read.


Have been looking for a floor lamp off and on for a couple of years. Wrose, where did you find yours?

Since y'all asked, first here's a bit of background about Farquaad: During marching band season the last several years, during breaks in rehearsal and during meals before home games, he's usually been hanging with either upperclassmen (who are now all graduated) or with the band teachers (both high school and middle school), the drumline instructor, and the color guard instructor.

So ODS came home from his first pit rehearsal and told me who all was playing in the pit. He named several students playing trumpet, piano, guitar and bass guitar, and one playing miscellanous percussion (bongos, triangle, wind chimes, etc.). And he mentioned that the middle school band teacher was also playing percussion, and his wife was playing B-flat and bass clarinets, and another middle school band teacher was playing drum set, and the color guard instructor was playing flute and tenor sax and B-flat clarinet. And of course, the high school band teacher was directing the pit.

I noticed he wasn't mentioning anyone on alto sax (which is Farquaad's original instrument before he decided he was an equally amazing drummer)*. That surprised me a little since Farquaad acts like he's SUCH BFFs with the middle school teacher and the color guard instructor. However, Farquaad is also a choir student.

So I asked, "What about alto sax? Or does Farquaad have a part in the play?"

And ODS responded, "Well, since he didn't get the role of Seymour, he said he didn't want anything to do with the show."


Diva much?


*eta: In Farquaad's defense, he genuinely IS an excellent alto sax player, and he's not too bad of a drummer.

ACK! Although I admit I pretty much only like it alone, on sandwiches.


I don't prefer chocolate and peanut butter, or anything else. When I put it on a sandwich, I prefer crunchy and as thick as the little bits of nuts. Ergo, I don't have peanut butter too often. It's not exactly low cal. lol


Ever use PB2? I do like that. Surprised me, but I like it. Basically just peanuts and a bit of sugar, you mix it with water. Apparently mixing with oil is just for preserving it long enough; if you use water, you're supposed to use it within 48 hours. But holy cow I was shocked I liked it so much.

Ha ha ha, there's a commercial for Colonial Penn Life Insurance on, several older women who are lunch ladies, talking about it while they stock the lunch buffet or whatever it is.

DH goes, "Where are their hair nets?" lol

I said, "It's a commercial, they don't have to wear them."

I've seen it at our local grocery store too, shocked me. It was in the International Aisle, which is usually 99% Asian and Mexican foods. But there it was, a teeny British section.

I really like peanuts. I just don't like them when they play the role of peanut butter.

On the other hand I can't stand olives but love good olive oil. Weird, huh?

Coconut I don't like in any form whatsoever.

Have been looking for a floor lamp off and on for a couple of years. Wrose, where did you find yours?
Well ... since you asked.

We went to Lowe's first, I told DH they tend to be most helpful. They had a whole aisle (on one side at least) on display. Lots to look at and choose from. After walking back and forth and discussing various pros and cons, we chose one. Can't find it. Get a person and he checks, none in the back, four on order, will be here in 3-5 days. I tell DH I can go back for it later this week.

Go on to get the yellow jacket bait, and they didn't have the cartridge refills. I suggested we just go to OSH for that, a local chain, well, maybe a CA chain, I think now owned by Sears. Smaller place. Didn't go there for lamps initially because I didn't think they'd have too many. So we go there and I said, let's see if they have any lights. They do - but no display. Just a few in boxes. But guess what. They had the exact one we'd picked out at Lowe's! And two dollars cheaper! Of course I could have used my Lowe's card, and I think it would have been 5% off. But I get up to the register and OSH now has their own little "Club" so I traded my email for 15% off this purchase! w00t! Oh, the price was $62 at Lowe's and 59.99 at OSH.

Anyway, there you go. I would guess Home Depot also has a huge display; I didn't go there first because it's at the mall and I didn't want to deal with traffic. And parking.

Mine has two lamps, the upright one and a smaller reading lamp on a flexible "hose." They come with the bulbs now. It's a law, here at least. I remember when it started, DD told me Target had to go attach bulbs in little individual boxes to all the lamps they had for sale. Now they are coming packaged with it. There sure are some interesting floor lamps out there.

I couldn't tell, the little bit they actually did, the food looked intact and one of them was just fiddling with something. lol

I don't mind coconut in stuff but I never seek it out. DH can't stand it.

I only like green olives with pimiento, and I only want about one a year.

lol

Those are kinda a top three for me!
I have two types of olives in my fridge right now. Love PB but have stayed off it lately in the hopes of getting rid of my gut. Coconut candy, coconut pie, coconut atop fresh fruit. YUM!

Really there arent' too many foods I don't like. I don't eat broccoli because if I do I'll be doubled over in pain in about twenty minutes.
and I don't like store bought applesauce. Really most things that feel prechewed I could give or take.

So this morning I had an interview with another placement company. learned a lot. hopefully something will come out of it. Of course this particular morning for some strange reason(ok not strange, the reason is I had to get up at a specific time) the kids slept in. I could have been sleeping until after 9! But NOOOOO I had to be up and dressed and primped and on the road by 9:30.

So now I'm here hanging out completing registration paperwork waiting on some quiet so I can take some software and typing tests.

Diva much?
If I had to guess, I'd predict that he will grow up to develop a killer instinct for just which manager loves the feel of a warm nose in that happy place where the sun never shines, manipulate the manager to ensure he gets credit for work other people do, and see his career stall out the moment he hits a department managed by an individual impervious to the happy feeling of a warm nose there. While he may have some genuine capacity to succeed through hard work or intelligence or whatever, and may in fact do so from time to time when mgr is watching or he's cornered like a rat in a trap, he won't be satisfied with merely prospering because he'll need to be the star.

Unless he has outstanding talent he'll doom himself not by lack of ability but by lack of ability to make himself a genuine part of the team.

Holy cow. I've worked with folks who have that attitude and this sounds like the high school version of that behavior.

But NOOOOO I had to be up and dressed and primped and on the road by 9:30.

So now I'm here hanging out completing registration paperwork waiting on some quiet so I can take some software and typing tests.
Good luck V!!!! You sound excited! I hope they find you something!

I'm not excited. I am hopeful-ish.
The first sentence of their information is something like "we know finding work is like a full time job and can be disheartening" Uh ya think?

But I liked the lady I spoke with and I hope I made a decent impression. I have a lot of drive and skills and desire. Now to get in somewhere and show it all off.

Not sure when anyone wants to eat lunch around here. I'm totally thinking of doing a breakfast for lunch thing. I have linguica and eggs in the kitchen. Wish I had some spinach.
