It's been almost a month since anybody posted, thought I'd pop in and say hello to everybody I've been in Oregon for 3 weeks, just got back on Sunday, and I start working again at the corn maze tomorrow and Saturday... and I'm applying for a bunch of other jobs, so we'll see how it all goes... I'm trying to work through my novel and finish it before I have to start a new one for NaNoWriMo... Also, trying to get the wheels moving to start graduate school in library science... In order to do that, I need to take my GRE... In order to do THAT, I need to study for it.... on top of writing my book, prepping for my new book, applying for jobs, and working at the corn maze...
It's a little bit insane right now...

Sep 9, 2010Omna15 posted a message on The Coffeehouse - cradle of the Enlightenment, crucible of culture & arts since 2006!Hey Stuff, it's great to see ya in here.. So i have some bad news... I got rejected for the Department of Defense job.. HOWEVER , i DID get a job at the local corn maze- that's temporary however, and i have NO idea how much I'll be making just yet.. My first day is Friday.Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
I also need to fly home for 2 1/2 weeks to help my mother recover from a hysterectomy procedure to remove some precancerous cells from her uterus.. so I'm going to be taking care of her while she recovers from that.. A lot of stuff kind of came down on my head all at once, sooo yeah.. Fun.
Hope everyone else is doing better these days...

Glad to see someone popping by in here.. Things've gotten sorta slow here these days.Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
Aug 23, 2010Hey fellas! I'm BAAAAAAAAAACK Sorry I haven't been around much lately...but this morning I was groggily waking up and not looking forward to making phone calls to the credit agency and the rental office, for maintenance issues...Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
Meanwhile I'm STILL waiting on the government job... I flew to MD early this month for the polygraph and psych consult, and when I got back, according to my friends who also work for that same branch, they all said it'd be about 2-4 weeks/a month before i heard whether i have to fly to MD again and retake the poly... (it was kind of ridiculous... they thought I had done drugs, when in actuality i swear, i've never touched the stuff!) and so i might have to take it again, which apparently isn't that big a deal cuz most people have to retake it at least once, and they allow you to, no problem... but sheesh. I didn't lie about anything! Sooo yeah. We'll have to see. But yeah, I came back and asked my HR rep about how much longer it'd be before i heard about the next step, and he said "expect to hear from us again in 2 months" TWO MONTHS!??!?!? AGH! That means I won't hear anything until OCTOBER?! But my boyfriend made a point, that it might just be "UP TO two months" ... which is what I'm hoping.... and cuz I have a lot of credit accounts from when i was young and stupid in college, not paying off all my hospital bills... so my Dad paid off a big chunk of them but apparently i still have two or three more that i had no idea about, that i need to call them again today and make sure they send me the forms so i can fax them to the gov't and etc....OY.
Meanwhile, I got a canvas letter from a public library in the area, from when I took that civil service exam back at the end of April, and so I intend to apply for that, so I just need to wait for them to contact me about an interview... I sent it early last week, so maybe I'll call them again today too.
Well that's pretty much what's going on with me... Hope everyone's doing well:)
I promise to check back in more often
Jul 5, 2010Heeeylo Lorthos! Good to see newcomers!Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
To Purple- I just saw Toy Story 3 last weekend and I have to admit, it was AWESOME I loved it It just dealt with Toy Story's entire story arc absolutely perfectly
Hope everyone else is doing well and that your 4th was equally as great Myself, I'm relaxing at home and just waiting for the gov't to get back to me about my job so obviously I'm a little nervewracked
Jun 17, 2010Well, not enough people were consistent with it, so Yukora stuck a fork in it and declared it deadPosted in: Retired Clan Threads
As for the NHL stuff.. I didn't follow it, but my boyfriend certainly knew about it.. I didn't have the channels it was on though..
I made some BBQ chicken last night... Great recipe- put two bottles of bbq sauce, two sticks of melted butter and a dash or two of Honey Brown beer... Damn good sauce if I say so myself... We're bringing some of it with us tonight for the finals game..
Oh.. and I GOT A CONDITIONAL JOB OFFER from the Gov't in Maryland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Edit: Congrats to Purple on the 100th post:D
Jun 17, 2010Oooh awesome, about the car, Ally!Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
And PURPLED!!!!! It's awesome to see you back! Of course you have my eager sponsorship I'm hoping maybe we'll all become a bit more active... things have been busy for me so i haven't popped in as much as I used to, but hopefully with more activity that ought to improve
Well, tonight is the final NBA finals game, Boston Celtics vs. L.A. Lakers.. Personally I'm rooting for the Celtics.. since I love Boston and all. We're going out to get some beer for the game and stuff to mix with for a dip to munch on during the game, plus some salad dressing since I forgot to pick some up yesterday when I went shopping.
Anyway, I need to pee then we're going to the store.. I'll pop my head back in here when i get back
Good night, though if I don't get a chance to say hello again before tomorrow
Jun 10, 2010Heyo Yukora! I sure do... I'm on LiteratureCrazy most of the time, but sometimes I forget to sign on... I don't really use MSN Msgr all that much these days tho.Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
How's everybody doing? I'm really glad to hear that you (Starr) got everything (or almost everything) worked out... We just ordered pizza and buffalo wings... i'm starving.. it's gonna be goooood.. Then prob gonna watch either Hunt for Red October or Goldfinger Gotta love Netflix
May 24, 2010We try to stay family-friendly, so no hard alcohol herePosted in: Retired Clan Threads
As for being a casual customer... once you stick around for a while, then you can
May 19, 2010that's true, Starr.. it does have a lot of history and its really difficult to (for me anyhow) whittle all that down....Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
For me, the image that comes up is a place that kinda mixes together a few coffeeshops in my history.. One was an internet cafe in downtown Medford (my hometown in Oregon) that has long since shut its doors.. it was always great cuz I would stop in there after school and hang out there until I walked to the public library to be picked up by my mom... It had computers, comfy couches, amaaaaaaaaaazing cheesecake.. it was light and airy too, a lot o' windows, with a back room for the computers.
Yet another spot that kinda comes to mind, and was always kind of the epitome of the coffeehouse was Java's in downtown Rochester, my college town and where I live now. It was a classic artsy type of cafe, lots of organic sandwiches, and crazy decor, art and mirrors on the walls, real dark and intimate... a steel bar that you ordered the greatest drinks at.. My favorite was a Terrapin, a kind of caramel, hazelnut coffee drink with pleeeenty of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on top. Ryan and I went there a couple times and always kind of toasted each other in honor of the CoffeeHouse..
Then again, there never quite seems to be one that completely fits what I see the coffeehouse being.... I imagine a wide open space (like the internet cafe) with plenty of room to talk to each other, conversations being thrown across the room, Alacar manning the diabolical cappucino machine, a huge list behind the counter written in chalk (like Java's) and everyone just feeling completely at home in one or another comfy armchair or beanbag, like PurpleD... and who could forget some of the antics under those invisible blankets by the fire.... (that's another thing... warm cozy fireplace too)...
Its amazing the amount of memories we have here, and the things I can imagine happening, even if they never "physically" happened...
btw Starr.. you and I were one of the first to meet up in real life.. Was i what you imagined when you met me? Always been curious- and maybe we talked about this before lol. but its fun to recall
May 17, 2010I agree w/ you about the random cuteness... I think if i revamp, I'll remove that portion completely, the holiday parts, that makes sense too..Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
May 15, 2010What items seem awkward?Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
And why wouldn't it be a good idea to keep the titles that have been there since the beginning?
May 10, 2010Heh good morning all.... A chai latte? sure thing Here you go *hands Chai Latte* Hope you enjoy!Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
I wouldn't mind sprucing up the first post but I really wouldn't know where to start... Alacar has usually helped me with that kind of thing in the past... i don't know where he got off saying "I'm sure Danica can take care of it.. she's good at that kind of thing"
Give me some suggestions all, and when i have a free moment i can try to do something about it..
May 6, 2010Hey folks... Just finished watching my TV shows of the night.. yeah, folks, I know we need to revamp stuff.. but I'm kind of an old reminiscer about the days of old... I'm a sentimental softie, what can I say...Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
oh and is anyone interested in buying my cards?? i'm kinda hard up for cash nowadays and wouldn't mind getting rid of my whole lot.
Apr 30, 2010I'm here and accounted for as well! First post cake to SGT Chubbz CongratsPosted in: Retired Clan Threads
Nice to hear you're still trading, Starr... Seems you're still doing well now, with living in Canada on terms of Magic Is there much difference in the Magic reign from the States vs Canada?
I've been playing a lot of golf lately... I'm going to kick myself for doing this but I found an awesome set of new ladies, lefty clubs for 200 dollars and since I'm gonna be playing a lot more often, I want to have a good set Sooo we're just hangin' out then going to the golf store in a bit to pick up my new clubs, then going to the driving range to try 'em out

Mar 12, 2008I would recommend not quitting, but like others have said, minimizing your involvement.. Its the kind of thing you can still enjoy when you can... I personally have no one to play with, and I miss it a great deal.. I toyed with the thought of quitting, especially seeing so many posts about decks that I have NO clue about, but I know I still love the game, and if I could just find one or two people to play with on a fairly regular basis, I would still play. Honestly, that's one big thing I miss about Ryan's and my relationship because he was always someone I could play against....Posted in: Psi's Blog
Feb 10, 2008Hey... interesting.. I remember feeling kinda like this when i went to Europe.. For me, I was totally into the whole trying new foods thing so i didn't exactly not have my appetite... but I can imagine it would be different there because of the vast majority of unrecognizable foods... AND the fact that you were living there and significantly homesick at first.Posted in: The Weary Gaijin: The Chronicles of Mr. Stuff
In any case, bravo on trying the new stuff!!
