Totally OT, but my 16-year old just got herself her first job. At McDonalds - and she's a vegan.  :D
Well, they do have salads, and there's always the fries!   ;D ::) ;)

Sex, drugs, and rock and roll.  Preferably all at the same time!   :o 8)

I need to go to bed, but don't want to. It's always the same. I somehow can't seem to switch off the "stuff" that's going in inside my head. It's not bad stuff, mind you. Just thoughts. But I can't stop them and that means I don't sleep well.  ::)


I refer to my aforementioned statement,  and hope this doesn't offend you. 8)

I just read that, and it sounded all wrong.  That was in no way intended as a solicitation.  If you believe it to be, then please open your etiquette manual to pge 25, article 4 section b4. ;)

Time to go walkabout, eh?

Gyppo
You're right there.  I can't get enough of driving through this country to see what's over the next hill and what's around the next bend.  It's a big place and I've seen a lot, but a small percentage.
I won't go overseas until I've seen most of it, so I can be an ambassador and tell everyone what it's really like in Oz - the coast and the desert, the beach and the bush.
They're so far apart, so it will take a while. Chris

I really really really really really need to use some adverbs.  I got tired of kicking them all out of my novel.  Well I have some in there, but not many.   So hopefully and sincerely, having done all this editing, clearly I need some adverb therapy - really I do!  So apologetically I write this with some glee and maybe I can put in a few unnecessary words as well, to round it off and feel extremely better afterwards.


Phew!

Adverbs?  ADVERBS, we don't need no stinkin' adverbs! ;)  I've done the same thing before, so I can relate.  They're deceptively descriptive little buggers aren't they?

Da*n that Gyppo for ever getting me started on that "buggers" word.  It's addictive! ;D

What?  Oh yeah,...ahem.  What I need right now a little more sleep.  The wifey took medication at bedtime and kept me up most of the night doing her moose impression.  Snoring sucks! 8)

Speaking of adverbs...

I need to turn off my writers' brain (which I didn't even know I had) so that I can enjoy reading one of my favourite author's books without noticing the overuse of adverbs and passive voice :-\

Damn you and your helpful ways, MWC  ::)

I need to get supper started so my 16-year old will finally stop nagging, but I think I'll just tell her she can bloody well make it herself. She's got a job at McDonald's, for goodness sake.  ::)  


a job at macdonald's, nel? I am surprised.

I need a way to stop my own "freight train" at night. My snoring wakes the bride, and she's none too happy about it, so she wakes me, usually with a sharp elbow. Then we're both wide awake. 

Buggers!  ::)

Yep. As a vegan.  :D

It's obviously not her dream job, but hey, she's only 16 yet, and it does not only bring in money, but also provides her with some nice work experience.

She gets on really well with her colleagues, and overall quite likes her job.


yes it's all down to experience at that age. My daughters going to have a year off after she does the "Matura" in 2011. Probably send her off to my sisters in the North of England. Now that will be an experience  ;D

I need a good dose of I know you can do it-ism to get me through this site building process.  I wanna get back to writing.  Looks like it's going to be article promoting the website mostly, but I gotta pay the bills somehow.   8)
