Ramblings, again

In my last comments Natalie says: I've never shot a gun. If I did i would hit my foot.

I had to laugh at that because as I'm carrying the damn thing from room to room it's usually pointed at the floor and I've thought on more than one occasion, "Katrina, make sure your finger is off the trigger and laying along side like M**** showed you because you don't want to shoot your damn foot off!" There's no safety on this thing people, it could happen!

The application has been sent in. The one that's going to the same place, but not the same job, as H Ditty. I have a feeling I won't even be considered. In the ad it says that due to so many applicants only the ones that will be considered for hire will be interviewed. That's how I'll know if I'm even in the running. Don't know how long they'll go through the apps before they start calling for interviews, hell they may have already started doing them. It's been running now for at least a few weeks and tomorrow is the last day to send them in. Keeping my fingers crossed. Wish me luck.

17 days until he's home! Woo Hoo!!!

I'm a little ways into book 5 of the Harry Potter series. It's a huge book, the largest of them all and book 6 isn't a whole lot less. There's no way I'll have them done before #7 comes out Saturday. I suppose I could go and get my band number from Borders right after work tomorrow which would give me my number in line if I want to stand in it at Midnight. But, nah, I think I'll just go get it in the morning when I'm doing my shopping for my nephew who's birthday it is on Saturday. Anyway, I think I'll take a page out of
Debbie's book and not go to any sites what-so-ever or anything else that I can help so nothing gets spoiled for me. At least to those places that I know other's read the books too. I may or may not update again for the next several days either so that way I can concentrate on reading the books. I probably will, but who knows for sure.

The chick on the other side of my cubicle wall has the best smelling hand lotion. It's some kind of berry, strawberry I think, mixed with something else. It permeates the room. Yummmm She just used it by the way, that's why I mention it.

Ok, gotta go, time to start winding down the clock.

Ok, I'm back. I'm at home now.

There's this pond in the business park where I work. From the moment the ducks and geese came back for spring and summer it's had them in there. But this past week, until this afternoon that is, one goose has been there all by it's lonesome. I don't know how to tell the females from the males in the Canadian geese so I'll just call it a him. He's been standing on the side of the pond now every morning and evening. In different areas mind you, but still, just standing there looking all forlorn and shit. I've been feeling really sad for him. Sad enough that I want to pack him up and take him home with me. But then this afternoon I saw him on the North end, still standing on the side of the pond, but lo and behold, there was a little family of ducks sitting right by him. A male, female and little mallard ducklings. Seems late in the season for ducklings but there they were. So now I feel better, he's not all alone. Hopefully next year he'll have a mate.

Alright, I'm outta here, thought I'd have more to say when I got home but I'm too hungry to think of anything else.

You're so sweet to feel compassion for that one goose! Hugs to you for that.

Canadian geese are pests all over the US. I just got back from Oregon where (at least in Bend) they introduced a couple of swans in the river near Drake Park to keep the geese in check. They're arch enemies apparently. :)

Aww, thank you.

Yeah, they definitely seem to be in many places. But this pond definitely belongs to the ducks more than the geese. There were about 6 or so at the beginning of spring but now it's just that one lonely little goosey.
