  1. Well hello fans

    What did I do today? Oh, slept late, worked 4 hrs, planned on doing laundry (on a Sat. nite, isn't that just too SAD? But nothing on TV Sat nites anyway ...) The laundromat was closed so I took myself out for Fish n Chips, oh my gosh HEAVEN!!! So good!

    Rented 2 movies, the first was Deja Vu with Denzel Washington, I enjoyed it. I also got Night at the Museum but didn't watch it yet. Church x 2 tomorrow and dinner in between with my dad, stepmom, son (for his birthday!) and son's other grandmother (who is a peach!). Olive Garden. Mmm, I am being so good on my diet (Oh well at least I will have salad tomorrow! ha ha)

    What else? My kitty being most affectionate tonite, I don't know why? Usually she wants a lot of attention but when she gets it - she walks off and looks at you like you're stupid. Tonite she laid next to me on the couch purring and let me pat her for almost an hour! and then when she was on the floor she put her paw and her head on my foot - awwww...

    Anyway - question from Walking Rock:

    Quote from walkingrock
    How do you quote something from the day before?? I wanted to comment on someone's quote
    What I do is click on "multiquote" (or, if it's just one quote, you can click on "quote"). Then you will have a text box with the desired quote. I then "cut" the text from the text box, and then paste it in the next day's thread. There may be a better way to do it but that's what I do.

    I hope that helps! If not let me know!

    Good Sunday morning to everyone.......although it is still 30 mins away from Sunday.
    At work as usual, but only one more night before get to go home and am taking the youngest grandson home with me this time.
    Husband will go to Church without me again........must start taking some weekends off.
    I have not seen Deja vu, but want to and I am jealous.......I love the Olive Garden, and of course there is not one near me.
    I hope everyone has a peaceful day today........back to work for me.

    Good morning! :kiss

    This is my first weekend off in over 1 year. I decided to take this weekend off, because final exams for school begin in 1 week. I squandered much of Saturday, but I did manage to complete 2 assignments.

    Take care and have a good day!

    Just got in from Joshua Tree area (actually, 29 Palms), after a great evening of bluegrass music. Lots of ppl played lots of instruments and it was fun!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnddddddddd I just deleted all the piccys I took, except one I managed to save to desktop. Below is the 29 Palms String Band (dh is on the left, playing along; sorry it's so dark . . ):

    It was a nice evening, shorts-and-shirt sleeves temps, gentle breeze, and all those stars in the desert sky. . . Congenial group, some good food, acoustic instruments: what more could we ask???

    See you all in the morning, though, my bed is calling . . .

    Good Morning!

    Zoe, I was confused because I was thinking "Where is she? In Austrailia that she is talking about what she did today already" but then I noticed the time you posted and guess your talking about yesterday. More coffee is needed.

    Hmm, I tried the multiquote thing and I can't get it to work. I'll have to try again.

    In the meantime, dianah, I've been to Joshua tree park. My hubby and I went to Palm Springs this past September with friends and we drove out to the park. It was so neat to see. I'd never seen anything like it.

    I would say I can't imagine working every weekend TheCommuter, but I remember doing that waaaaaaaaaaaaay back when I was in school. Sounds like you've been pretty productive.

    I actually slept last night, chemically induced but sleep is sleep, right? Unfortunately, Oscar (dog) decided to emit noxious gases all night long and although he rarely sleeps in my room, he decided to do so last night. Go figure. Also got woken up abruptly early when oldest son woke up and noticed that his alarm hadnt gone off and he was late for work.

    Today is clean the house, bake and decorate a bd cake and prepare a nice roast beef dinner for my son's bd. His girlfriend and his best friend, and my sister, are joining us.

    My day was productive yesterday too. I sent off an article to a client that was only due on Monday, and two others to another client only due on Wednesday.

    Have a great Sunday everyone.

    multiquoting - ok, I just read a post on how to multi quote and it won't work for me. Pout. What am I doing wrong?

    Morning, clemmm. Glad you slept well.

    When you click the multiquote thingy, you have to wait until it turns red, then click, "post reply" on the bottom left. That will load all multiquotes. Try it.
