In that last one I can't tell if she's talking about substance abuse, schizophrenia, or both. But I can tell we're going to enjoy ourselves this evening. So glad you're still around, alternative!
Can you guess which of the two pieces of green glass is a "plant"? A couple of women have tumbled broken household glass and added it the harbor. Which stinks.
I'm almost done with my sorting. Everything still has to go into clear glass bottles, however.
(BTW, the plant is the one on the left.)

I'm sorting my glass yet again, getting rid of pieces that are insufficiently frosted. I'm also getting rid of pieces that were planted on the beaches/in the water -- more on that later.
I got a call tonight about the Haverhill job. They want me to come aboard, at least for Oct to Dec. They wondered, however, why I would work for them, when I worked for them before, and at my exit wrote a "scathing" (their word) letter about the experience.
Shades of a family member here. I remember writing that I hoped that my daughter would be placed at a facility administered by the company. I also remember writing that my sometime supervisor was not consistently appropriate, in different and perhaps aggravated words. Well, so be it. I had a feeling that the letter was potentially inflammatory, and I wouldn't write another one like it. However -- sorting through my memories, at least -- it was the truth.

I made flight and hotel reservations, and I booked a car. We're looking forward to it. And now we're ESPECIALLY looking forward to it, b/c Jon Stewart & Steven Colbert will be there with us.
Imagine my surprise to watch The Daily Show on Thursday and have Jon say that a) he's holding a rally, and b) his rally will be in D.C. on 10/30. We arrive at 10am on 10/30. I'm PSYCHED.
There are days when I feel like toast. And I'm not even working!
Every weekend for the last six or seven weeks we've been out sailing, though. Bless sailing.

For my birthday present (it's today), you must give me 33 minutes. That's how long it will take you to view the videos at the site above. Wonderful work, starring Johnny Knoxville, of all people. Having watched, I feel invigorated.
Y'all know I'm originally from Michigan, right? Flint, Michigan.

I was staying in a hotel that charged more for supplying a cable than this cable cost. (Internet was free but, as a home/school/business wi-fi user, I don't carry cables with me.) I added it to my briefcase in case I run up against this problem again.

And here is my yard, or the blooms and produce in my yard at the moment. I also have lots of yellow and didn't photograph anything yellow. Why? Who knows. I feel like everything LOOKS so yellow that I have to document the other shades.
For the record, the yellow is perennial sunflower, black-eyed susan, and something of which I don't know the name that creates sprays of ecru, next to my blue bush (pics of that 2 below).
