Coming from living with a smoker/smokers 12-13 years, I can understand your venting Lisa, Vent away on that one to me. My aunt has not smoked for 3-4 years and there is still signs of tobacco around the place (walls, etc).

Oh my gosh, a huge YES!!!! Same thing happened to me last go round--can't remember who or which swap, but as I was pulling all the stuff out and laying it in rows, it was like WOWZA--this person smokes! It was obvious.

I've noticed it too! I always though tit was humorous on the B/S/T forum when people said that stamps came from a non-smoking home--until I noticed how the cards smelled from some swaps. It sure does make a difference.

Never had a problem from any Ho swaps smelling at all. I did get a swap when I first started with ash, a siggy butt, and a used tissue in it tho... Got an old bandaid too as well as candy wrappers, complete with chewed gum! >>

Thank you I have a hard time with the smearing too. I think for this set, I used Palette ink with prisma and copic markers - just avoided coloring in the image - whatever little gap you have in the coloring pretty much disappears when it shrinks.

YUCK!!!

And yes, I have had it happen. The habit is a personal choice, and because my sniffer is sensitive to the smell, I expect to pick up traces it of it with even the most discreet and courteous swappers, but to open the envie and feel like you just walked into an ashbox... UGH.

good soggy morning to everyone! It is a mess here! It continued to rain hard all night long. We have had almost 8 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. We are currently on a 2 hour delay for school this morning . I am hoping they go ahead and cancel it altogether. Hope everyone is doing well. DH is out trying to rescue our neighbor who is stranded on a flooded street.

Jackie~ I hear ya gf! I am SO tired today! UGH! Is it bedtime yet?

My best friend just left and Annabella is inconsolable! Hard to make her feel better when I'm overtired, hormonal, and feelin' sad myself! TG she has school today...that will help distract her (I hope!).

Title: AC DC - You Shook Me All Night Long lyrics

Artist: AC DC Lyrics

Visitors: 39336 visitors have hited You Shook Me All Night Long Lyrics since May 27, 2008.



Send "You Shook Me All Night Long" Ringtone to Cell




She was a fast machine,
She kept her motor clean,
She was the fastest damn woman that I ever seen,

She had sightless eyes,
Telling me no lies,
Knockin' me out with those American thighs,

Taking more than her share,
Had me fighting for air,
She told me to come, but I was already there,

'Cause the walls started shaking,
The earth was quaking,
My mind was achin',
And we were makin' it and you...

Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long.

Working double time on the seduction line,
She was one of a kind,
She's just mine all mine,

Wanted no applause,
It's just another cause,
Made a meal out of me, and come back for more,

Had to cool me down,
To take another round,
Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing

But the walls were shaking,
The earth was quaking,
My mind was aching,
And we were making it and you...

Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long,
Knocked me out, I said you
Shook me all night long,
Had me shaking and you,
Shook me all night long,
Well you shook me,
Well you shook me...

You really shook me and YOU!
Shook me all night long,
Aaaaahaaaahaaaah You...
Shook me all night long,
Yeah yeah you,
Shook me all night long,
You really got me and you,
Shook me all night long,
Yeah you shook me,
Yeah you shook me,
All night long.

Ever have one of those days where you just wanted to go home and enjoy the day? That is me today, I am typically too social at work to be honest, I have a tendency to go to lunch almost every day and I love it. But today I just didn’t want to deal with the politics of who I go to lunch with, what we discuss, where we go to lunch…I decided to go eat lunch by myself. So I drove to a nearby deli, picked up a sandwich, grabbed an iced tea, and made my way to the park behind the place I parked my car. Forcing myself to go back to the car was way too difficult. I really just wanted to stay there sitting under that tall tree and watch the adorable toddler soccer class that was going on….but no, I had to head back to the office, where I am right now. I am getting bored with work, too many meetings about nothing, too much wasting time, too many repetitive issues and projects. I know I should feel blessed to have this job, and I do, but a lot of things are just getting to me, and the worst part is that since I was sick for so long, I currently have only one vacation day, no personal days yet, and I have already used my sick days up for the year and it’s only April. So I can’t even take any time off, well I can, but then I don’t get paid…is it 6:00pm yet?! Sorry for the vent, I just had to get that off my chest some how…

So I drove to a nearby deli, picked up a sandwich, grabbed an iced tea, and made my way to the park behind the place I parked my car. Forcing myself to go back to the car was way too difficult. I really just wanted to stay there sitting under that tall tree and watch the adorable toddler soccer class that was going on.but no, I had to head back to the office, where I am right now. I am getting bored with work, too many meetings about nothing, too much wasting time, too many repetitive issues and projects. I know I should feel blessed to have this job, and I do, but a lot of things are just getting to me, and the worst part is that since I was sick for so long, I currently have only one vacation day, no personal days yet, and I have already used my sick days up for the year and its only April. So I cant even take any time off, well I can, but then I dont get paidis it 6:00pm yet?! Sorry for the vent, I just had to get that off my chest some how
I get it Jackie... same here!!! I want to go & sit at the park in front of the fire station AND police station! lol

Sounds fun, pick me up on the way

Joy and Jackie ~~~~ so understand what you are going through. I'm happy to have my job, but at the same time, all the NEW stuff gets assigned to other people in the unit (who have more time in than I have which is 14 years). I know they are doing this to be safe, they don't want to give off new projects to staff that *might not* be here if there are cuts. It's just frustrating. Right now I feel like I don't have enough workload where if the cuts are made, it would be easy for them to cut me. I'm trying to take anything new they will give me, just to stay involved, but it gets passed on to someone else who has been there longer than me. 8 people in my unit and I'm 3rd lowest in seniority (if you go by time in the UNIT I have been there 2nd longest)

So Joy and Jackie (and everyone else who has read up to this point) feel free to vent to me anytime. I UNDERSTAND.

Now, where are the cute mechanics?

I'm not worried about being let go or cut or anything, I just am tired of the way certian people treat others. I always knew it was a problem, but since I was away from all of it for so long its like seeing things through new eyes. Plus tomorrow I have a meeting about what we already had 3 meetings about recently, not looking forward to tomorrow....I think tomorrow will be an iced coffee day
