Personal Stuff
« on: April 18, 2018, 09:41:25 am »
HOW ARE YOU ?

Personal stuff from me:

I moved on Sunday.  During the worst ice storm in a couple of years.  It went well. 

We got flooded in the basement on Monday, and Bell f*cked up our move and Mrs. Joan Hardner was in tears.  Living out of boxes still, which is stressful.

I am less stressed as time goes on, though. 

More big changes coming soon: employment for me & Mrs.; other things

I had to spend the day without power because of the ice storm. Not pleasant. And the IPhone drains very rapidly without WIFI when you use it. If I'd known how long the power would be out I would have gone to my brothers and not lost a day of work. But hydro always says "soon". On the plus side, I do have an emergency battery charger for the phone, and lots of batteries for lights and the radio. Now I'm looking into getting a generator or at least one of those big backup batteries which could power both my computer and my modem. They're kind of ridiculously costly, though.

I was the successful applicant for a permanent position in the job I have been doing as a temporary assignment since last August.  The position is challenging and very, very busy but I do enjoy it a lot.  Also comes with more money, though being government, not much.  Anyway, I am thrilled to have won this competition.  :)

Congratulations!  That's awesome!  :)

Last Saturday, we were invited to go along in a hummer-limo thing with 10 other people, driving 1.5 hours away to have a steak dinner for someone's birthday.  It was totally worth the drive - google Bruce Hotel and check out their steak dinner, mine was the size of a softball.

Anyhoo......it was mostly neighbours of the birthday girl (us) and some of her friends.  One neighbour (I'll call him George) brought his girlfriend of 6 months who also happens to be a neighbour (I'll call her Evelyn).  I've met George on a number of occasions when we've helped neighbours move or put up quansets, etc., never met Evelyn before Saturday.

Evelyn had no interest in getting to know me at all, which was fine.  I kind of hit it off with another lady there.  But Evelyn did seem to have a real interest in my boyfriend.  I didn't think much of it until on the drive home, she was sitting next to him and I was on the other side.  I was facing away from them because I was talking to someone else on the other side of the limo.  When I looked back, she had her leg draped around my boyfriend's leg.

I thought, "Hmmmm......my best girlfriend could do that to my man and it wouldn't bother me, but I don't **** know YOU."

I don't think I'm a jealous person.  I considered reaching over and flipping her leg off him. 

They will be at another birthday party we're going to this Saturday, so I'm going to chalk this one up to lots of booze and the loss of inhibition that sometimes goes with it.  But I'll be keeping a bit of an eye on her.  HAHA

I finally understand what flipping someone off means, I am slow that way.

In her defense, I don't blame her.  He's very handsome.

@Goddess.  As MH, kudos to you for not making a scene, and yeah keep an eye out. 

My approach has been that my partner/spouse will keep unwanted ladies at bay.  If he does not, thats on him, not my job to keep the ladies off, imo.  Can't anyway, if he returns her interest.

Clear case of media bias right there!  :)

I wish you well in your endeavor.
I recently got a nudge from a fellow I used to work with who's current business keeps expanding and he want's me to get my ass off the couch and help him manage and teach at his flight school. I'm thinking seriously about taking him up on it so I'm just now trying to recall just how to engage in the classroom part of that. I'll admit I'm nervous.

I did glance at him -  both hands on his drink, sitting still, not talking. I think he wasn't sure what to do either.

We have an agreement but I realize now it's a bit one-sided - he doesn't step in and make a scene unless I indicate I need help.  My last booyfriend before him, used to cause scenes everywhere we went if anyone so much as looked at me and that was a large part of why we broke up.  We will have to come up with something for when the shoe is on the other foot, LOL

If you've done teaching before, I bet it comes back quickly.   Could be fun and I wish you the best.  :)

Well if I was still in Nfld. I would head to the front of the class and say "Ok bys, off wit your glits" but I'm on the west coast now so they wouldn't know what the hell I was talking about, so I'll have to think of something else.

Thanks

Evelyn sounds like a real winner.  You could have asked her assertively but calmly to please take her leg off your bf, totally appropriate in that instance, she was clearly flirting, booze or no booze she had interest.  And why did your bf let her do that?  I'd be dead if i did that LOL.  One to keep an eye on for sure, and i hope you had a chat with your bf LOL though i don't know the whole context.
