Hurray for PartyMarty and Pirate_Kate being able to go out before the twins are born!

PS- I've always liked the name Kimberly for a girl. If you'd REALLY like to show your appreciation. :wink:

I'd forgotten how satisfying it is spending a Sunday morning with a power drill! Finally got round to doing things that had been bugging me for 3 years. Very satisfied :-)

iScream

Not available on the App store since it is still a beta.

It is a non-serious record keeping app for tracking those moments in your life when uScream.

And also a reminder of how you got to that point.

And yes, when we talk about 'those little moments', we are talking about those little moments specifically.

:oops:

And remember, I just write code. Someone ELSE is responsible for the concept. Although I do admit to helping out with some of the funny comments (not shown here).

Say what?
Working for an English "school" that would throw me contract-based jobs every over month or so and only paid me €12/hour. The wage wasn't that bad since I didn't have to do the legwork in getting the job and could use that time towards my studies. Not really a mitigating factor, though. I had two bosses and the one I spoke with thought she had full control of the company, but in reality it seems the other did. She used to call me up and would talk my ear off and complain about whatever was making her angry that day and vent. Typically not fine if you're a friend, but she wasn't a friend and she had a habit of calling late in the evening.

What led to said firing, however, was the latest contract I had. It was this 16 year old Turkish student who is failing almost every class he is doing because his English and German are both horrible so he came to us for language help in both languages. We set up 6 meetings about 2.5 weeks in advance and during this set up he got mad because one of his suggested appointments didn't fit my schedule (I had a test, can't really get out of that one). Then he cancels another appointment or two shortly thereafter and then a week, week and a half before we were supposed to meet, I found out a second test that should have been in the afternoon was now taking place at exactly the time we were supposed to meet. I obviously had to cancel. A day later I get an angry phone call from his sister, who is paying for his lessons, and she says I have been canceling a number of appointments and calling me a bad person. I then have to call my boss and defuse the situation and she believes me and I send her all the emails I had exchanged with this kid to prove I was telling the truth and this kid and his sister are spinning everything around and blowing it out of proportion. 5 days later or so I get an email from the other boss saying my services are no longer wanted or required.

I'm just like every modern woman trying to have it all. A loving husband, a family. I only wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. That's all.

T in your endeavor tonight, may you have much success. Make sure you have plenty of H2O in the morning with a healthy dose of aspirin.

We will keep our fingers crossed over here that better things will come along.
