Rwhen yeah it's good to hang out with my daughter. She and I have the same taste when it comes to plays/ballet/opera. It will be fun. :D

My next project/s are small ones. Small enough to fit into an iPhone cover. It's fun and a whole lot quicker than the last project. :wink:
Yeah I hear ya. Sometimes my ideas for making crafty presents come way to close to Christmas. :roll:

:hihi:

we've made no decision yet. If we make payments, it's $458 per month (for both of us) until May 2015. Which means we have to come up with that much money each month. So we have to find a way to come up with roughly an additional $500 in income somehow. That's what makes me nervous about agreeing. We would also have to pay for passports (at $100 a pop) and then save incidental money for food, souvenirs, etc.

As long as we make the decision before the end of November we get the discount. And the cost will vary depending on whether we go to Switzerland, and where in Switzerland. And there is an additional cost if we choose one of the excursions in Austria (either visiting Sound of Music sites or touring a fortress)

We start in Krakow, Poland, then to the Czech Republic, then Austria and Germany. We can finish up in Munich, or go onto Switzerland.

Hamlet: ooo! Sounds interesting! good luck! :hug:

Sidd: glad you are doing good. :hug:

rwhen: how are things out your way?

Vana: :hug: good to see you!

:hihi: to everyone else! :D

HHEEELLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the house!!


One sleep until FRIDAY. Oi. I can hardly wait. Today should be a bit warmer and we should see the SUN. As I said, I might be frightened and run back in my cave. ;) But this morning is starting out very chilly....I have on a fleece over my shirt. Yeppers, fall has decided to rears its head.

Have a great day!!

Calma. I did post over to the MoME OOC. That is about all I have the time for at this point. Maybe as things settle I can visit more as the month rolls out. Hope y'all have a great MoME this year!!! :)

Siddie....Namaste!! :hug: Excellent to read, can't keep a good man down. Hope that you are feeling even better today. Alvida.

hamlet!! Well, I'll be hornswaggled!! Good on you. Take it nice and slow and let it develop at its own pace. Click away. Being the part time Yenta that I am, I have great interest in these things. ;)

rowan. Hello. Nice to see you post again.

SCRIBBLES.... :D :D YAY. Very good to see you, even if it is just to abuse the originator!!!!! *catches popcorn* ONE SLEEP. AMY DAY COMETH.

Telta. Are you making iPhone covers then? ;) I think I have to revise my plans and just go for next Christmas. But I still want to "make" my gifts this year....personalize them. I will ask for any ideas. *nods*

CR...and tomorrow two...and then by Sunday...OFF!!! Keep that chin up.

Iris!! That is one solid trip that you could take. Are those places that you would like to go. I mean REALLY like to go. While I think that you could do the payments and at some point in almost two years get the passports (which you should already have oh by the by ;) ) and do things to raise the extra money for spending, just make sure that if this is a once in a lifetime thing, that it is THE thing you really want. I am by no means saying that it isn't.....I am doing to mental math after seeing your figures, what it will cost you for the next two years investment. :hug:

basillllllllly....I hope the moderators can fix your sign in problems fast.

Vanadarlin' :hug: 143 :heart: See you later, get some sleep.

SHOUT OUT: Melwa, eari, BagginsGirl, Ladykat.

vison Alex

Well thanks, guys. :oops: :) We'll have to see how things go. This is, really, the first person I've met in these online things that isn't running out to some concert or function or bar four or five times a week or running to New York at the drop of a hat (which, by the way, costs a lot in terms of tolls and such).

Iris: I heartily recommend travelling. Don't end up sitting back one day and saying "boy I wish I could have . . ." when you had the opportunity. If it means a lean Christmas or the like, then it's definately still worth it.

I don't have a passport because I've never needed one, and didn't think it wise to ever get one if I wasn't going to use one.

We've discussed getting the cards so we can go to Canada, but if we get passports, it would be moot, wouldn't it? ;)

Germany, Austria and Switzerland are on my list of places I want to go "someday." As are England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and Israel. The woman (and her husband) putting the tour together is my high school German teacher...one of my favorite teachers in school. I was to go to Germany with them my senior year and then couldn't do it. :(

Hello, hello, hello!

Yes, Fraday can't come soon enough.

Iris---Trip to Europe? Great opportunity, hope you get to take it.

rhwen----apartment/house search is on hold for now. My landlord seems to be acting a little more reasonible, so what I really need to do is intensify my job search. If I get a better job, I can get a nicer place, and have money for the move.

No time to play now----gotta go.

Don't mean to be a downer here

Sheesh, are you paying to fuel the plane, too?

But if you decide to do then do it.

That are in play here.

Iris - Wow, that's a dream-tour. I think you should take it, even if that would mean a bit of budget-contsraint.

rwhennie - Thanks. Trying me best. Happy friday to you and get some rest! :hug: (ETA: Whoa, it rhymed???)

rowan - sorry to know you are busy. :hug:

Telta - show us the end result when it's done.


LK - Believe in yourself, that you WILL find a better job. Be positive, you can do it. Sending good wishes for you.

Bye!

Rwhen definitely iPhone covers. A lot of fun to do just got to decide what pics for who. Hmmm as for ideas what kind of crafty things do you like to do? I think that's the biggest question then who are you doing it for and what do they like then just how much time you want to spend on it. I know not much help but a start I hope. :wink: :D

Sidd how's the arm? Hoe you ared feeling better. And I shall endeavour to post a pic or link when they are finished. :D

All this talk of travel make me wish I were back in Germany....(lived there for 3 years and did some sightseeing...castles, volksmarches, Christkindlesmarkt ...but that was a long time ago.) :)

Hey everyone!!

Wow, all this talk of going to Europe sounds fun!!!! Switzerland! Germany! Ireland! Scotland! Sounds fun! I think I missed some countries you all mentioned in my list.....
Well, we haven't seen anymore bears around were I live, though the neighboring town did have to shut down some areas cause a family of bears was wandering around it, but no one was hurt so that's the main thing.

Rwhen, I know can you believe falls here! Its pumpkin season already!

Sidd, how's your arm doing?

Hope your all doing great!!!! Best of luck everyone!! :hug:

It's been warm and muggy here for the past couple of days. The temperature isn't that high, but the humidity is. I wish it would cool down to more fall-like temps. I'm not wishing for snow, but I don't like high humidity either.

Iris----WHOA!! :Q That is a lot of money! But if it's something you really want, I hope you can pull it off.

Hey, hey! A basil sighting! :hihi:

hamlet---so, how's the weather? :D :P

With all this talk of travel you will be needing someone with knowledge on this mission, quest, thing!! Now, where are we goin? :D I am up for the trip myself someday!!

I am surviving this nasty cold virus, bug thing that I got. It has been a week now and my throat is still so irritated. I can barely swallow! But I am a tough ol' bird and will make it through.

The plumbing is fixed and the sun came out today!! Was a fairly nice day after all!! I just need more days like this with time off work to sleep and enjoy the fall days!

rwhen I got the books and got right into them. I am so anxious to get on with the storyline. :D You just gave me one of the greatest gifts this fall!! I will have many hours of reading pleasure and will visit this place often!!! Thank you my SSoTH!! :hug: :love:

Hey Telta great to see you again too!! You stay healthy this fall and winter. I was just sick enough for us all!!! :hug:

Yes, I know you were kidding. I'm just poking fun at myself a bit, too.


And for the record, the weather here in NJ is unseasonably warm (i.e., Indian Summer) and ridiculously dry. Mowed the lawn the other night and it kicked up big clouds of dust. We're really hoping that the tropical storm down in the Gulf makes its way up here at some point and dumps some rain on us.

HHHEEELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the house!!!


*HAPPY FRIDAY JIGS*


We made it!!! 8 straight and then FREEEDOMMMMM. I sure do wish that the forecast would have been right yesterday, we didn't get the sun....just very cloudy and VERY chilly. I don't think it got but around 50. Today, they are saying the same thing. Sunny and warm. I will take it. Hmmppfffffff. Hope that everyone has a great weekend.

hamlet, I think the online thing can work, it seems to for millions of people. My sister has met many people through a certain site and she hasn't found "love" yet, but has had fun and no crazies found her. Give it time to see what happens. I am pulling for ya. :D

Iris. I have had a passport from when I was around 18 and always keep it current. It is a good source of alternate ID. And it stops the questions of....oh we could go "here" on a moments notice, but we don't have a passport. Always be ready. ;) I think that Austria and Germany would be lovely to visit. Good luck on your decision. I think it would be a blast. :D

Ladykat, excellent to know that you have a better living arrangement with the landlord. I hear ya on the better job thing. I MIGHT have something happening very soon. Keep everything crossed. Then I too will be finding a place, I miss all my stuff in storage. I wouldn't wish for snow either, did you see the upper midwest? :shock: Snow all over, roads already closed.

Calma, Friday Sable day. Give her our best. And to Gambit too. Have a great weekend that is SUPPOSED to be sunnier and warmer for us.

Siddie. Namaste. Great posts over in MoME. I think you are going to have a really fun time this year with Sauron and Co. Glad to read that the arm is much better, now to get some good rest so you can enjoy the back end of the celebration that is starting. Keep your nose in those books!! Alvida. :hug:

basilllllllly. YAY. Good that your got the ability to post again. Now I can faithfully call you out on thread. Glad that someone is enjoying the weather...though I do see tornadoes in the Wichita area. Hang on Dorothy. :D

Telta. Very good advice. My family is pretty diverse. I would like to do something with a Beatles theme as that is one thing we all have in common, our love of the Beatles and all things associated with it. But heck if I can figure out anything that isn't pretty expensive. One Christmas I got us all matching Beatles hoodies...that went over very big - but it wasn't cheap. I love the idea of the personalized iPhone covers. I swear I don't know what my brother is doing but he always manages to drop his in apple juice or peanut butter. Pfffft. ;) I also lived overseas for a period, Greece and I adored it. I didn't want to come home to be honest and still dream of it to this day. :D

BagginsGirl. Hey lady. We have a farmers market that around 3rd week in October they do a corn maze and have pumpkin patches. They are already starting it this year. :roll: So yeah, it is early. Oooffff. Glad you didn't get any bears where you are and hopefully they will be out for the big snooze soon enough. Have a great weekend.

LIN!!!!....I do hope that your birthday was fun in the City???? Got to hang at the Fairmount...sweet. We want to hear all about it soon. Good to see your face. :D

Vanadarlin'.... :hug: 143 :heart: OH SWEET. I am thrilled that the books arrived finally to you. Geesh with all the time, i could have driven them to you faster. So get on it and we will have much to talk about. YAY for the plumbing getting fixed yesterday, maybe this morning you will get a good sleep in that you need to get over that virus. Love ya.

Scribbles.....happy belated Amy Day to you!! Going to be a busy day for you!!! Good luck.

SHOUT OUT: Rowan, CR, Melwa, eari.

So I hear that if I don't stop by soon, I won't get shouted-out to! :shock: This cannot stand! Seems I missed the birth of a Shiny New Thread, too. Only time will tell whether October proves to be any less hectic than September was. The department has decided that our library needs a major overhaul, so that's one more thing I'm doing that I didn't forsee -- I've hit the point where I have to start saying 'no' to requests to do things if I want to get any dissertation work done.

Anyhow, glad to see that the Great Government Shutdown of 2013 hasn't had any effect on TORC! :P Does this mean we can safely assume that TORC is not actually a secret government project designed to do.....something.... sorry, lost my creativity streak. More chocolate, maybe. Gonna go make no-bake cookies!

Finally Friday... All I've got energy for is to sit here and read the forums, make a couple of posts, and crawl to bed. Thank heavens I can sleep in tomorrow! I simply feel that I don't get enough sleep on workdays.

But, if TORC turned out to be a secret government project to make more chocolate, I wouldn't be against it... :P If the chocolate would be good, that is. :D

I was just commenting to my mother earlier today that all the hot chocolate in our town in sold out, and was wondering who bought it all. But now I see it must be all you chocoholics! :) :lol:

Hamlet - :D I'll still cheer you on though.

Rwhen - Sorry, but I like cloudy, chilly, rainy weathers. I love it! :D I'm sure having fun. Picking Sauron and Gollum (who I like the best ;) ) is great. Because you could have more fun with villains. And there are always finger jokes when sauron and Gollum are together. ;) Ughh, I can't keep nose in the books. I do have to read, you know. Which means the eyes should be atleast 25cm from the page. ;) :hug:

I forgot to say before. Welcome eari!! :hug: You sure don't have to reply, just updates?

:hihi: Sil. I hope the work and grad pressure recedes soon. :hug: Those no-bake cookies taste sweeet! I want to be the Chairman of the Organization to steal chocolates!!! Vote for me!

Good to finally see you in your highest spirits, Vanaladiel. :)

rwhen, I know you are not here during the week end but I have to say I let myself get sucked into work right away. Even missed the beginning of MoME... Partly because things did not go as well as I intended during my vacation. But yes a story...
My husband and I went to the UK for Leoba and Dindraug's wedding; we took the opportunity to spend a week in London - which my beloved had never seen and I had never really visited as a tourist. We had a wonderful time and I did not expect to feel - as Bardy put it elsewhere - soul-fed. I had not seen Teherin, Edain, Berhael and Bardy for 10 years and it felt as if no time had passed at all in a way. Forget the awkwardness of 10 years gone by without seeing each other, that did not happen. I belonged there as if we had met every week for the past 10 years. I had the best time ever and Jaeniver came to Paris with us afterwards where we shared another three days of mini-moot. It was great.
Plus getting to spend an entire week in London was awesome; my husband haven't had the chance to do something just by ourselves when going to Europe since when we travel we usually go see my family. I love going there it is a way for me to go back to my roots but this time was special. The hotel was not great but we were together and spent a lot of time visiting and having fun. I think we did all the touristy stuff there is to be done :lol: and we enjoyed it tremendously. I loved how he had a hard time understanding the British accent it was really funny, and how he picked up some expressions within a couple of days like saying "mate" instead of "man" or "dud". He loved London and is intent on going back... Our time in Paris was short; 5 days but with Jae we rediscovered some places that we like; and I re-discovered that I cannot go to the top of the Eiffel Tower without feeling super bad - cold sweat and vertigo bleh :P :P :lol:. We had a lovely time and saw almost everyone. It was crammed and we did not sleep much :roll:...
Back to work and looking forward to the next time we can go to the other side of the pond ;)...

Sid thanks for the welcome ;)

:hihi: everyone :hihi:
Have a good weekend :D :D
Never forgetting those who have passed into the West :rose:

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good.


It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free

Hey everyone! :hihi:

Meant to get here Friday evening. Got the PC up and running, settled into my chair----only to find TORC wasn't co-operating. :(

Extremely long busy day today, should have been in bed hours ago, but I wanted to catch up a bit first. I'll sleep in tomorrow. Like Rowan, I don't get enough sleep on weekdays.

Bye for now. :D

Rwhen my youngest munchkin is a Beatles fan too. Anything Beatles is pretty much up for grabs when it comes to presents for her. She even has a couple of old records I found at my parents place this passed summer and now is the happy owner of them. Can't play them but wants to have them as keepsakes. :D

Vana hope you are still on the road to feeling 100%. :hug: :hug:

Sidd the same for you. Hope your arm is doing better. :hug:

Cool start of the day at -3c. Hopefully it warms up a bit. :)

Have a day everyone! :grouphug: :hihi:
