I've gained 20 pounds in the last 5 months since I quit smoking :nosmoking: and I'm ecstatic. :bgirl: Now I just need to level out so I can buy jeans that might fit in a month. :gnoshing:

I found a cool thing for those that have Gmail accounts. If you sign up for anything at a web site and you need to put an e-mail address, just put +{the site} after your username and you can see the the details of who's spamming you:

Quote:
Find out who is spamming you: Be sure to use plus-addressing for every form you fill out online and give each site a different plus address.

Example: You could use
pinkyrocks+nytimes@gmail.com for nytimes.com
pinkyrocks+freestuff@gmail.com for freestuff.com
Then you can tell which site has given your e-mail address to spammers, and automatically send them to the trash.
It can also be used to generate unlimited addresses.

More info on 'plus addressing': GMail - Unlimited Email Addresses

Miscellany and overwhelmed for the better lack of words. Okay, something is getting ready to break here, but maybe it is because I am under the weather that I am feeling vunerable. I spent the first half of the week in Denver--sick....made it to the meetings, took shit loads of notes so I could remember what took place when I am feeling better. Back home but have been up most of the night. Found out that my classmate that I trusted to turn in my homework for me on Tuesday night only turned in half of it. I sent him everything, but not all of it got turned in. I have a standing rule of not missing class on tuesday nights, but this business trip had to be an exception. So, I sent everything to the teacher and hope things are now square. Spent most of the day yesterday in DOT meetings and working with a pipeline regulatory consultant. My job for the next three months will be to get my divisions regulatory procedures in some kind of order. Wait did I say some kind of order? I mean CREATE some regulatory procedures for the whole division. Not to mention I am in charge of getting their end of the computer S dirve in some kind of logical order. The structure system they have now sucks. I waste a lot of time trying to find things and so does everyone else apparently, plus they must think I don't have much to do. My field engineers are going to love me, but that's okay, it's my job. I want a BIGGER office and more fucking pay. Review time is coming and I don't have enough room to spread things out to look them over much less breathe. I need some place where I can concentrate and be able to talk to people of all titles in private. Don't have that.....need it... I have decided if I am offered a job in Denver, I will not take it. Great place to visit, but don't want to live there. I have several regulatory training sessions I must attend between now and March and with the possiblity of my boss being promoted in the next couple of months. I am considering taking a leave of absence at school and concentrate on work for about 3 months. I hate to do it, it will put me behind, but I am feeling the pressure as I work with different departments that are trying to get on their feet and I need to devote more time to getting a better grasp of my responsiblities. It is four thirty in the morning here. Dingfod and Roxanne are in bed and I am up and down because I am stuffed up, coughing, not able to sleep and worrying about shit at work. I think I will get a shower, dressed and head for the office, leave about two this afternoon. I have things I need to get done and have to be in Texas on monday. Don't want the railroad comission on my ass.
I will be traveling to Texas more often as well and sounds like I will be in Austin every couple of months for TRRC meetings and hob knobbing with some industry specialist.

Wow, that is a quite a few and varied issues you've got in the air right now, inland wave! I imagine being physically sick doesn't help stop the mind from racing from topic to topic, either. Sounds like things are hoppin' though, maybe a lot of it will propel you forward into areas that are good. It all sounds pretty exciting to me, yet understandably overwhelming. :hug:

My back hurts, my head hurts, I am tired and itchy, and I am coming up on my 24-hour anniversary of getting the song Winchester Cathedral stuck in my head.

I just thought everyone should know.

I was wondering when this thread would pop up again.

I am taking a big step with a female friend of mine. We've been meeting for coffee every Wednesday, and I had her over last Friday night. Now, I invited her to go hiking with me.

* quiet bear is a bit apprehensive about this whole situation.

Maybe they're being intimate, did you ever think of that?!

The only danger that dog causes is the danger of love.

They have a plugin like that. I read an article about it at work, but now I can't find it. Basically it's a network of people and whenever anybody comes across a poll or article about their pet topic, they push a button or something that alerts all their other people and they can go and like fuck with poll results and flame people all internet megaphone style. I really wish I could find that article.
