If you do decide to come back, welcome backsmiley - smiley But either way... smiley - hug

I swear I'll try to remember to call again sometime--your number's buried in my inbox somewhere (I really should write it down...)

Thanks, Amy.

I still haven't really decided. I enjoyed writing EG entries and, based on my looking around in Peer Review, think that there's still a lot I could contribute. OTHO, I still have some hard feelings about the way some of the regulars here treated the persons I loveand, by extension, me.

I'm also not sure that my being around wouldn't result in old news being rehashed.

For now, I'm just sticking my virtual toes in the virtual water here.

"*waddles like the wind*

smiley - laughsmiley - laugh

Well, it looks like I'm going to be hanging around for a while. I've got two entries in Peer Review that I wrote just so the entry I *wanted* to write will be able to link to them.

I can't wander around when I'm supposed to be working. smiley - grr Neither workload nor the level at which internet use is monitored will let me.

You know, if Paperbaby decides to show up ten days ahead of schedule, we'll share a birthday!

Well, I certainly can't *run* right now...smiley - winkeye

I've learned of more people with July birthdays the last few months...smiley - laugh Probably should've written them down, as most are friendssmiley - erm

If you want, if I'm not 'busy' (smiley - winkeye) you might get a call (since I seem to remember it being said that you don't generally like be reminded of your birthday, but you're the one that mentioned it, so I'm a little confused--the fact that it's 7 am has nothing to do with itsmiley - tongueout)

It's not that I don't like to be reminded of my birthday, I just don't like an inordinate amount of fuss being made of it. I'm planning on spending the day with my mother. We'll both be making a donation to our favorite casino, over the course of many hours.

At least, that what I expect the outcome to be. Last time we went gambling, she came home about $150.00 ahead! (Note that I'm not saying how I did. smiley - winkeye)

7 am is no time to be trying to put words together in any sort of order that another person might understand, you know. I hate it when I'm scheduled for early morning meetings at work. I keep pressing for a rule exempting old hippies from having to talk with anybody before noon. No luck, so far.

We were actually on at the same time last night, but when I came over to talk, my computer froze upsmiley - sadface

Anyway, by the time you read this, you may have read the last appointment update, but if not, it's in the journal of U211555. As you'll see, you might have someone sharing your birthdaysmiley - bigeyes (Though I do think it'd be smiley - cool if July 11th was the day--that's my h2g2 anniversary...)

Actually, there is no chance that Paperbaby and I will whare a birthday. You see, I read "*wandering around when she really should be w*rking, since after all, just because she *plans* on w*rking until July 15, there's no guarantee that PaperBaby agrees *" and foolishly took that to mean that your due date was the 15th. I know. It doesn't say that, or anything like that, at all. It says that you're planning on working until the 15th. So, I still need to work on my reading comprehension.

In any case, my birthday, which was on the 5th, went well. I didn't end up donating any money to my favorite casino after all. They donated money to me. Not much, but enough for me to go home smiling.

smiley - weird

Somehow, I'd gotten it into my head that the 5th was your birthday, and then I read this thread again and saw the 10 day comment, and so (erroneously) came to the realization that it was the 10th... I was all set to call, too. Well, can i wish you a good unbirthday?

Oh, and, um, with how I've been feeling this afternoon/evening, let's just say that the 10th would be better than the 11th after allsmiley - winkeye

Now that's smiley - weird... I must've definately posted on the 9th, because I had a grand total of 4 contractions before going to the hospital (thought my water'd broke during a nap) on the 10th, and they were in the morning...

smiley - doh

Timezones strike againsmiley - blush

In case you were wondering why the 11th (which it turned out to be after allsmiley - bigeyes) was smiley - cool... that's my h2g2 anniversarysmiley - smiley

I think I saw you doing more than saying hello in another thread. I'm still wading through the backlog (just two days worth, and I have to wade!), but do want to at least have the courtesy to wave back at you here. smiley - winkeye

Take good care of yourself, paperbaby and Tom.

I will, though sometimes Faith doesn't agree about how well she's taken care of. Tomorrow's bath day again, and, well, let's just say I tend to wonder what the upstairs neighbors think I'm doing to her with how she screams while I'm washing her hairsmiley - laugh
