2. I'm going to a jewelery party at a good friend's house this weekend. I'm not going to the party, or jewelery. I'm going to see her. It's been awhile. Do you like home parties? Usually I think they are over priced. In this case I pretty much have all the jewelery I need. I really would like to go to a Pampered Chef party. There is tool I use all the time that I lost. It's called the Mix 'N Chop. Sounds crazy, but I used the heck out of that thing. I used it to break up hamburger meat in the pan, break up cake to make cake balls and to squish berries for making jam. Somehow from my sister's house to my house I lost it. Other specialty kitchen stores don't have it.
4. I'm very thankful for my job. I love the students (most of them). We send a lot of students out into the world, and they get jobs. One frustrating bit is that they are 2 talkers in the office. One used to have class, but he doesn't anymore due to a staff member needing surgery. that's a whole other story. Anyhow, now they are both in the office at the same time. I swear they talk from 8 AM to the end of the day. I look forward to peace a quiet. I teach Tuesday and Wednesday. By the time Thursday rolls around I just want no stimulation. I just want to get things done. How do I, or should I tactfully tell them to shut up? We all share an office. Reading and writing tests for me does not sink in if I have a bunch of talking going on.
5. I had to call 911 for the first time on our trip. No worries. Right off the plaza strip we saw an over sized bag. I appeared to be a camera bag. It was the perfect size for a bomb to fit in it. I called it in. I told them that I didn't know if it was serious, or not. I wasn't expecting 100 questions. What's the street? What's the cross street? Where are you? What's your name? What's your phone number? Where are you from? I just wanted to report it, so they could come check it out. It was right across from a hotel (name given) and was in front of a look out point by the bridge. I seriously was ready for them to ask me to look in the bag already. They must have not been in a hurry to check it out because I kept looking back, and no cops. Have you had to call 911 before? What did you call for?
