Oh, haha, that would make more sense! Arts in UCC. I don't really want to do it, but couldn't make up my mind for anything else. I don't want to be a teacher though, which is what everyone thinks when I say Arts. We'll see what comes of it anyway.

So I got to work and everything was off the floor in my office. Some of the stuff I had removed yesterday because I was told the cleaners were coming in to strip the floors. but EVERYTHING Was off the floor and either on my desk or in another room. Once I cleared that off and found my chair I thought things were back to normal. Then I went to use the bathroom and the garbage can was on the toilet. So i go to take it down and one of the sides of the garbage can fell off (it is metal) and sliced open 2 of my toes! Now I have to go and get a tetanus shot this afternoon so that I dont get an infection since it was a metal object in a bathroom that could be covered in all kinds of gross.
This is a fun day.
ps- toes HURT!

Kristy, maybe you'll have to trade in your ballet flats for some steel-toed boots. Maybe you can claim workman's comp!

im wearing sandals :(
Flats would have prevented the injury.

Given that everything should be covered by the government, and if some odd reason I need a prescription, by my work medical plan, there shouldn't be anything for workman's comp to cover, BUT I should get kick ass steel toed boots anyways!

Sure! With a cute plaid lining! Or maybe you can invent a whole new genre of footwear: Steel toed ballet flats, for the fashion conscious woman who occasionally encounters occupational hazards.

yesterday, it snowed in Munich.

SNOWED!!!

There was SNOW!

In September.
SEPTEMBER!!!

Of course it turned into rain after a few minutes but people instantly started talking about Christmas.

Which made me think about last year.

Which leads to my question:

is there any demand for another Christmas Exchange? Or maybe a REAL "Secret Santa" exchange this time?

And if so, who wants to take over from the scary elf (haw haw)? ;D

I was wondering this, myself. I'm always up for a boardie exchange. Maybe start a new thread to attract attention and guage interest. It seems the board has lost a lot of people since Facebook has taken over, but we might still be able to do it. We didn't do a spring exchange this year, did we? It's time!

We went to the apple orchard today. Picked half bushel. Got fresh cinnamon donuts and apple cider. Mmmmmmm. Colder than gee whiz today, though.
