Maybe I am enamored of the lady who works at Subway yes she is somewhat heavy of frame and icy of demeanor but irregardless she's got an adorableness to her (and smiles to me, even though not to others). Tonight her hair was red, even though in the past it was blonde (yellow).

The cost of the program is cheap and they take care of food. Some trips provide cabins and others you have to set up camp on your own. It's a really worthwhile and fun endeavour and you meet some great people. They have dozens of trips a year all over the country. Check it out if you're interested.

No fires in national parks, Stitchy. We will have to snuggle together for warmth.

Hey guess what y'll bittays, my colleagues have all started calling me "Man of Tasso Elba" on account of how I bring elite threads into the workplace environment (high quality clothing).

I did purchase a gift that I'm reasonably confident will bring some happiness to a person who's been having a tough time lately. (If you guessed that it was a gift of Bible, you were on the wrong track it is Chanel.)

None, strictly speaking.

What do you mean, you don't get vacation?

When people talk about a certain amount of "vacation" they're talking about getting their normal salary for a certain period of time despite not coming to work. I don't really get a salary. My compensation depends on the firm's overall profitability and my relative productivity. I can take as much time off as I want; it just means I'm going to make less money.

Well, that totally sucks that you don't get vacation!

...

And the fact with portable electronics, even when you get away, you are never away. Half the time I am on the phone or a computer dealing with some nonsense. It makes traveling a real PITA, as it is never relaxing as it should be. I then get pissed bc I spent the money and got nothing for it.

you are asking about the son finding out on a forum or the mom finding out the son found out on a forum and are you implying the son did not know beforehand?

I was in a blech mood, but then Eine Kleine Nachtmusik began playing on the classical station I listen to. Feeling much better.
