I don't have much to say today. It is very rainy here and everyone is in a bad mood. Two of my co-workers are on holiday and we actually have work for two extra co-workers, but don't seem to find any.

Can't wait to read the article...almost lunch time now though!! I will read it after lunch!!! Awesome the concert was a success!
Yeah, I'll enjoy it. On top of that there will also be a day long tv show about the biggest airport in my country. Which is celebrating it's 60 year anniversary. The show will center about everything regarding flying, tourists, planes ect. Sounds very interesting and I really love this airport.

Countin down the hours at this point!
Is your company closing down? Do you have a new job already?

After all, it is the final 'Pines Day before our Thanksgiving here in Canada. Hopefully he keeps that in mind. Perhaps some nice tri-cornered hats with a few Thanksgiving specials... a mixture of Columbus Day and our Thanksgiving.
I think I should provide an update on my apartment/employment situation. They have both been solved. Kim and I are going to remain at our apartment until the end of April. Our friend Cassie is moving out of her place with her sister and needed a place to live until the same time next year. She plans on moving in with her boyfriend next Spring, but didn't want to quite yet as they have only been dating for less than a year. Anyway, she asked if she could move in with us. We really like the idea. We aren't forced into renting a place we don't really want and the market should be a lot better when all the students move out in the spring.
In regards to employment, I start a new admin position with an Engineering company on Monday. I had an interview last week. I didn't really think much of it, but they seemed to enjoy me. It's a maternity leave contract that lasts until the end of May. The pay is OK and I receive a $2500 bonus if I remain for the entirety of the contract. By my calculations, the bonus combined with my tax return should basically pay for my trip to Italy and a few places around Europe next summer. Just in case, I will do some savings at the position, too.
Well, including today, I have two more days left of unemployment. It's been a good run but I am ready to work. Luckily, I think I will be able to enjoy the comforts of MMC at the new job, too.
Have a great Thursday, everyone! We're really closing in on 90% and the Season is becoming more evident with each day that passes!
Congratulation to your new job and the apartment solution!

Heh, thank you but that's exactly how my timetable on Thursday looks like - no break between the lectures but I'm okey because of knowing that there's only one such intensive day in a week. :]
Thank you, dear. I surely did, and I hope your day was amazing too! :]
Wishing you feel better soon!
Yes, Holiday music always cheers up. ^^
Good evening everyone!
It was raining today here and I'm exhausted! Not physically, I guess, but emotionally. Anyway, the rain wasn't so bad, which is good, and my advisor of studies really made my day! I met her in study abroad information session and she told me that she had gotten in touch with the university of Amsterdam and had explained my case (one of the documents required to be submitted is academic transcript, and it often needs about 10-14 days, excluding delivery time from Glasgow to the city where I study and live, to be prepared and therefore, it's very likely I won't get it by the deadline which is in 11 days). The university had agreed to wait for my transcript a little longer which enables me to submit the remaining documentation by the deadline and be confirmed for the exchange. IT'S SO AWESOME!!! ^^ I already contacted my friend in Amsterdam and said that I might come there in January and she seemed to be pretty excited too. Yay!
I'm so happy for you! Congrats!

Moving right along:
Days to the Season: 40
Days to Christmas Day: 82
Now under half a week away from our final pre-Season Milestone marker, the 90 percent "Home Stretch" point.
After that, things REALLY start to get interesting.
(As past experience has shown us!)
It just keeps getting warmer.
(OK, OK. I was just kidding about it being too cool too early. It's OK to back off a bit now!)
We have started this fine Weekend Eve at 65 degrees here in the capital city.
Have a Fabulous Friday, Folks.
And may you have a Stupendous Start to your Wonderous Weekend this afternoon!
May the Calendar Keep Bringing Happy Holidays to You

My granddaughter will ask me from time to time if I can get my animated Santa out that plugs in and moves when turned on. I had it out yesterday for her. We had let our tortoise out for a "run" around the house which he enjoys very much. It was funny because he was making his rounds "running" all over the place and suddenly paused right in front of the Santa staring at him in awe. He stood there for a couple of minutes moving his head up and down looking at Santa then continued on his way trucking around the house. I could not stop laughing because he looked like he was really admiring him. He's a cute little guy that has no fear of anything and will walk right up to our dogs, cats and us trying to see what we are all up to. The dogs and cats seem to like him and will hang out with him.
I mentioned this as a childhood memory of mine in an earlier post...
For Festive Spirit & anyone else who wanted to watch this sweet cartoon!!
I just watched this and you won't believe it but I remember it now! When the little rabbit enters the house and remarks about the decorations I just suddenly remembered watching it as a child! Isn't that weird !
