    Been feelin' a little 'nostaligic' of late.

    Been listening to a lot of Scorpions
    Watching old black and white movies (just watched "The Hustler" again. Paul Newman, Jackie Gleason, George C Scott... need I say more?)

    Studying like crazy for the exam.

    Need to be going to bed soon....
    Stomach has been acting up. Hope I don't fall sick :stone

    Here's some breakfast:
    Bagels:


    Waffles:


    Fresh Fruit:


    Condiments, cheese, butter.

    Coffee:


    East meets West -- a glass of Indian Tea on the left and a Coke on the Right:



    Enjoy

    Hello Roy!

    I'm too full to eat breakfast yet . . .. and I just had a bowl of ice cream.

    I found some photos of me preggers with my 5 year old - standing next to my little redheaded girl, the one who now walks around the house with her black and white hair, her tight jeans, her iPod, her cell phone . . . I miss my baby

    One more day off and then I work one day and on call for OB the next day. It is cool here tonight - in the 50's but was hot today, almost 90. One nice thing about the mountains. I just came in from putting bikes away and stopped to listen to the river rushing down the mountain . . . very lovely sound.

    I'll be glad when you've taken that darn test and passed Roy.

    Good EVENING from me here "Down Under"
    Enjoy your wednesday everyone!
    I'll try and pop back later after tea.
    Have been busy busy busy lately! Preparing to fly to sunny Queensland on friday!
    That'll be flight number 11 since May! 2006 is proving to be a year for travel for us!
    Ok, gotta dash and cook tea.
    Cheers............

    Good morning. Hopefully today will be better than yesterday. No, I don't want to talk about it for all to read.

    Thanks Roy for the food, although us women tend to watch the carbs. Can't have a bagel and waffles. The fruit looks good. I'm trying to diet - really want to try getting into the Navy after school and I'm not going to boot camp unprepared. People tell me the Naval boot camp isn't that bad but I still prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    I'm hoping to go job hunting today. Have a few places in mind. Want to keep my current job as much as I despise the politics and back stabbing of the place. Just need a second job so I can save for school next semester, besides, I have no life so I may as well work!

    Hope everyone has a great day!!

    I'm jealous!!! I LOVE to fly. Nothing better than taking off really fast and stopping on a dime in a mega ton aircraft. Ahhh, it's better than sex!

    Thought about being a flight attendant, but no way could I wear heels on a plane. Plus, the pay is not that great and I always dreamed of being a navy pilot, not an American Airlines pilot. The more G's the better!

    Just had some ice cream too although mine was Weight Watchers. Still tasted good.

    What??? Black and white hair??? Did I miss something? How old is your daughter and does this wash out? I guess you gotta let them be free a little. At least it's not permanent. Make sure you take lots and lots of pictures like this so you can embarrass her in the future. Hehehe. :chuckle

    I have to admire anyone with the self esteem to do that. If I did that in high school I would have been made fun of until I was crying. She obviously has a strong sense of self or is just following a crowd.

    Interesting nonetheless. Black AND white hair. I'm sure she's still beautiful and she will always be your little baby. Now cut the cord already!!!

    Good morning Roy, steph, Grace, and bethin!

    I am getting so sleepy, but I was hoping to stay up and watch a movie tonight. We'll see.

    Just got in from taking a drive, so relaxing. Did I tell you guys I got a new car a few weeks ago? It's my first new car ever!! I just love it! It's a 2006 Mazda 3 ..... it's sweet I've been driving my lil '96 Ford for so long .... it was a great little car, but it's so nice to have something new that actually has a CD player and other nice things. And it has some power .... lots different than my old car, where I would step on the gas and it'd be tuttin' along, going 0-60 in like 5 minutes Anyway, I'm just happy with it ..... it's my first big purchase since graduating last year. I'm proud of myself for waiting a year, even though I would have liked to have waited a bit longer ..... but I just couldn't wait any longer!

    Roy, good luck on your test! I am not sure what test it is, since I am out of touch but knowing alot of the posts I have seen of yours, you are a smart one and I know you will do great!
    Hello Grace, have fun on your travels! I think you've been around more this year than I have in the past 10, but I am planning a trip to Vegas for my 10 year anniversary next spring. I can't wait!!!
    Mornin' bethin, hope you are doing better today. Good luck on the job hunting!!
    Hello there rain dreamer. I have to tell you that I love your picture under your name! It is absolutely beautifu!!! I wish I could see a sunset like that more often!!!

    Good morning everyone!
    Whoopee...I am off today. It will be a day of running errands (bank, grocery store) and reviewing the EKG workbook in preparation of class tomorrow and an exam on it in about 3 weeks time.
    Thanks for the coffee Roy but it was empty! Did you drink it all? When is your test again? I'm sure you'll do just fine.
    Well, my real life coffee machine is beeping that the coffee is brewed. BBL!

    Morning all!!

    Good luck on your test Roy - go ACE it!! Thanks for the tea - I'll take the waffles & fruit too!!

    Hope the job hunt goes well for you Bethin. Black & white hair - how funny! Sad our sweet little children have to pass through such trying ages!

    Hope your car works out well for you Raindreamer - my current car performs about as well as your previous one!! Hubbie says no point changing it if we're emigrating next year. Trouble is I'm not sure it's gonna make 6 months let alone another year!! Oh well!!

    I've been accepted by one US agency for placement in Florida just waiting to hear from a couple of others beore making a decision.

    Everyone have a great day wherever you are! Stay safe & be happy! xxx
