I used to work at a sign company and my whole day was interruptions.  The office manager said she didn't know how I did it.  Due dates didn't seem to mean much.  Customers would come in early and I'd get pressured to get their job out instantly, no matter what, then get in trouble if any other jobs were late as a result.  >:(

I don't miss snow in the slightest.  I grew up in the Northeast so I got more than enough snow.  Granted I'll take a little bit for Christmas, but I love the climate here in New Mexico.

No, I spend the day basting a stuffed turkey and fixing the trimmings while watching Christmas movies.  :turkey:

Your sewer line, or the line you connect to is clogged.  I would start with vinegar and baking soda, followed by hot water.  There are natural enzyme drain openers that are non-toxic you could also try.  Then I'd try plunging.  If that doesn't do it there are drain snakes you can get at the hardware store that are reasonably priced.  Good luck.

I'm self employed, at home, so I don't have to go anywhere.  ;)

Anybody can buy things from a store.  Handmade gifts are so much better and more personal.  I'm a crafter through and through.

Krysten Ritter was just on The Talk talking about her series.  I'd like to see it, I like her.  She did great in Breaking Bad.

If my head won't shut down I take a dose of White Oak (Bach Flower).  Chamomile tea or supplements will help me relax enough to get to sleep.  :peace:

He was on Dr Oz talking about his situation.  Yes it's true.  I can't believe even he would lie about such a thing and cause so much grief.

All my kitties are former strays.  I had a couple prolific queens at my previous place.  There's a few stray cats around this place too.  :cat:

I work at home so I listen to music or books when the nature of my work permits.

Off-Topic / Re: Have you ever met a musician?

I met Donny Osmond and a few of his brothers in college.  I've also had a couple conversations with Gene Simmons and met several of the other members of KISS, when I lived in Vegas.  They were all very nice and the memories of those conversations have helped me through some discouraging times.  8) :star:
