Monday Memory
Share with us the first time you were allowed to stay up late, or do something out of the ordinary, because of something "special". Hmmm. Hard one. Trying to remember back. Well, dang I have no idea. Scary that I don't remember it. I suppse it's because I used to stay up late more than most. I'm a night owl. Always have been.

Participation Positives
Verizon fixed my cell phone bill so it's what it should be
I was brave and called and took care of something that invovled confrontation and I handled it well (normally I put off that sort of thing as long as possible)
I am watching Monty Python- and the parrot sketch is on! yay!
I ate a mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich and it was good
There is enough money in my account so that I will not be negative when my bills go through (*crosses fingers*)
Got a high score on Snood (played while on hold when talking to the phone people)
C's mom wants to commission me to make her some notecards and my step-mum wants to commission me to make her holiday cards
People seem to like my cards
I cleaned out one of the boxes in my closet (it's a start)
Get to see C on Wed.

PromoGuy's Monday Mission 2.29
1. Do you remember your first encounter with computers? Tell me about that. Had to have been...6th or 7th grade. Old school Apple computers. Used them for math stuff but also games. There was this waterballoon war type was fun. Taught angles and that sort of thing.
2. How late can you stay up and still be functional the next day? Do you do that very often? Depends. Usually when I have to be up for something I can stay up forever. If I don't need to get up for anything in particular the next day I tend to go to be at a reasonable time. When I'm working I'm usually in bed by midnight or so. Although lately I've had some insomnia.
3. When was the last really good hug you got from another adult? Who was it and what was the situation? Sunday morning from my sweetie. I was still in bed and he was leaving to go to work. He gives great hugs.
4. One thing about children is that they all like to draw. We all shared the same ability and skill level at one time. Do you still like to draw? (Not do you think you draw well, or do others, but do you like to?) If not, how come? Did you get discouraged at some point? I like to draw still. I doodle a lot but it's more of when the mood strikes me. I do like to paint. Although that's a more abstract thing for me. I don't do well with "realistic" type of painting. I prefer to go for a more emotional thing...using colors and shapes rather than just painting what I see before me.
5. I way overslept today. I had to head to work with no shower (don't get too close), and I am not in the best of moods. Have you ever overslept on a day you had something important going on? What's the story there? Hmm. I think the most resent one would have been a meeting at work (when I was working), that was at 8am. Normally we didn't have to be there unil 8.30-9am and I forgot to reset my alarm earlier. I pretty much woke up, felt my heart jump out of my chest and threw on some clothes and ran out the door. I ended up only a few minutes late thankfully. No one made a big deal out of it, and I was very relieved. When I got home I headed straight for the shower.
6. Ever go shopping for something you know you can't afford? You look at it and even think about how it will look when you get it home, somehow you justify the cost and believe it can happen? And just before you get to the counter come to your senses? What was the last thing you almost bought, but thought better of it? And why the heck do we do that to ourselves? Yes. Although I've been very good about it lately. I've just stopped going to the stores unless my goal is to purchase something and then the strategy is, go in, and get out as fast as possible. The last thing I did that with was with some clothes at BR. That place is such an achilles heel for me. There and any shoe stores. Why do we do this? I have no idea. Sometimes I feel like when I do it I'm trying to fill some void...or forget my worries. But then all it does is add more worries (financially) it becomes a viscious cycle.
7. (It begins again...) It's all such a blur now. I'd asked you to help me wake up but the alarm didn't go off. It was 10 till and just I knew I'd be late. Somehow you got me here on time. How did you do that?  Because I'm good like that.
BONUS: Can't you see, you belong to me? Yay the Police! I love them. I wish I had been old enough to have gone to a concert while they were still around. Sting was my first concert that I went to, and last year it was C's and my first date too.
