No Snow, No Gal Friday, No Pipes Allowed

Maybe it flurried while I was sleeping, but there's nada on the ground to show for the hoopla about snow. The VNA is up to its old tricks, lying about Gal Friday to me. I was told she was out this week, a lie, as I emailed with her last night. For whatever shenanigans they're up to, I get to have a woman who jumps on my last nerve today, and not get done the involved projects that GF and I are in the middle of doing. Good going, VNA. Send me someone I can't work with and see how little you get to bill for, cuz I can't use her for more than an hour.

I hope the snow stays away. (Who wants to see snow in APRIL?) Oh, and I'm not a geek.



I'm a nerd. (HA!)

A nerd. Hhehehehe.

What the! Don't send that snow up here.

Beest is quite the cat with all her vocals, btw. She's something else all right.

Glad it did not snow in your area, as it seems you are having quite a hard time lately. No one needs snow in April.

I used to put some things off a little, but mostly did chores when they needed to be done. Now, procrastination is my middle name.

No bagpipes...seriously? That irks me no end.

Susan- Haha!!
Oh and they've changed the forecast to rain. It's too warm for snow today...

Austan said...

Boo- I don't want it! My flowers are up!

The Beest is an animal unto herself. An enigma.

Austan said...

Arleen- I'm glad it warmed up, though this damp makes functioning a "challenge".
I mean to stop procrastinating, but never get around to it. ;)

Austan said...

Lawless, me too. I've half a mind to write a letter and tell them I won't come to Vancouver til they lift these stupid bans. Empty threat, but it perturbs me.

For some reason bagpipes always make me weep. I don't want them banned - but please play them out of my earshot.

Austan said...

EC- They do that to me too, but I like that. It's good to walk right into the music and stand there. But I'm a weirdo.
