Thawing out... Almost

Greeting from a mostly thawed out Shaymless Aymless. Yes, it actually got to be above freezing for a WHOLE week (during the day). And there was even some sunshine. Whee! That cold, crunchy white stuff is all gone. But still nippy outside.

All those crazy people from around here, kept commenting on how "nice" it was going to be this weekend. Granted it was better than it has been for months, but still the HIGH was 50-ish (10-ish for you metric folks)!!! Which in my book is a cold winter day in good old California. *sigh* So instead of snow covered cornfields we have barren, yucky brown wanna be cornfields.

Okay enough about the weather. Got to do the whole court thing for the ticket from January. Not a bad outcome. Got a deferral (basically pay a court fee and promise to be good) and now have to be good (no moving violation) for one whole year (only have 361 days to do, not that I'm counting or anything).

Other than that, life here is fairly boring. Just hanging inside (where its warm) doing some knitting and ready and laundry.

What's up with all of you?

I Eat, I Breathe and now I Blog!

Sorry about the derth of blogs. So here the Reader's Digest version of my life since Mid-Sept and my arrival in glorious Bloominton, IN.

Started work in mid-September. Met a lot of people and some I still can't remember their name even though most people are required to wear name tags. My department is quietly rebelling and only our manager is wearing the name tag.
And very week more new hirers report to work . I can tell some big growing pains are starting to show up. Lots of people who don't know what to do and how to do whatever it is that they are supposed do to. Very must the "flow them in the pool and see if they can swim" going.

Still experience lots of culture shock.
  1. No recycle bin at home! Don't these people know that resources are limited.
  2. Fresh fruit just doesn't taste the same. No real flavor.
  3. A lot of people haven't bought meat in the grocery store in year! They go out the kill it and keep it in their refrigerator. Without skinning it! *Shivers* I'm continuing with being a grocery store carnivore. Skin it and wrap it up in shrink wrap and I'll think about buying it.
  4. There's a limit on squirrels. You can only kill and keep 8 squirrels a day. I don't even want one!
  5. Ice on my car nearly every morning since mid October. *brrrrr*
  6. Took up knitting since its an indoor activity and it so dam cold around that its wearable too.
  7. Missing my book/blog friend! I keep saying I'll blog be then something else happens.
  8. The adventure with the Indiana Highway patrol was exciting but I can't remember anything about due to migraine, migraine medication and Ambien. To keep the rest of the world safe, the Shaymless Aymless will no longer be taking Ambien. I apparently fall in the small catagory of people who sleep drive when on Ambien. Now I must find a new meds for the insomnia.
  9. I've officially have gotten 3 people hooked on some of my favorites. So I'll have lots people gab about books and a support group 'gotta-have-that-book-now'.
  10. I really miss warn sunlight. I think we had some sunlight was week and it was sooooo cold. Still below freezing.
Anyway.... I'm going to try to blog at lease once a week or so.

Also planning on going to RWA and hang out with some really cool bloggers. I still need to figure out rooming optiond.
