    That.

    And Romney made an ass of himself. So that was nice, too.

    Really? I thought Obama came off as a stuttering fool. The constant ummm ahhh errr well... Uhhh was so distracting.

    I will be glad when it is all over though. I am so sick of the
    Sensationalism. Plus i can't vote'

    Better than Romney interrupting everyone, but never really addressing any issues.

    Sorry stuttering offends you.

    I actually felt there was a fair amount of interrupting and the moderator had zero control for both parties. Both did their fair share of interrupting.

    I said it was distracting... Not offensive. It really was distracting.

    I actually felt it was a pretty respectful debate though. I have watched some that were just blatant mudslinging compared to this.

    Jeremy had a spontanious job interview today (just a second job to offset his old one sadly) and if he gets it we are postponing our feb move and just moving 3 houses over until the end of next summer so we can save more and spend our time with everything instead of rushing. Its a 4 bed/2 bath with a screened in porch for 550/mo :D :D

    Glad to hear it! I had my first day today and I'm iffy too lol. But I think it'll just take time for me to learn my "place" and how the class is run. Because it's really all just routine... so we'll see. Tomorrow is "Fun Friday" so we are watching Tangled lol.

    And I suck at remembering names so that might prove to be difficult lol.

    Katalin is smelling like nutmeg and orange now! She finished up a bath and is looking and smelling wonderful. It took 3 people, 4 rakes, a slicker brush and 3 and a half hours - but she came thru it beautifully. A bonus is me getting $30 off because a friend of a friend of mine know the owners of the salon - yay! So this is the second good thing that's happened this year...

    One of my closest friends is a VERY VERY religious christian. I mean good old fashioned church every sunday/monday, is in the choir , fundraising, "May God bless you" every time you sneeze and buys a present for Jesus every year on Christmas doesn't have sex til marriage.. kind of Christian.

    Now, shockingly, we get along :rofl1: (she thankfully doesn't push her religion onto people and is respectful and kind towards just about everyone, including people whose lifestyle she doesn't agree with or whose religion is different, so it works) and today something happened that had us both literally rolling on the floor almost pissing our pants.

    Her: You know what I envy about you being Atheist?
    Me: Sex before marriage?
    Her: No.
    Me: I sleep in on sunday.
    Her: No.
    Me: Saying god dammit
    Her: No.
    Me: ..are you sure it's not the sex?
    Her: Yes
    this goes on for about 15 minutes until..

    Her: Ok, say you go crazy and rob a bank. Then they put you on the witness stand and make you swear on the bible that you didn't do anything. You could totally be like "HAHA!! SUCKAS!! I DIDN'T DO IT! ASK ME AGAIN! I AM IRON MAN!! ..you could say anything!!

    I was just like WHAT?!?! LOL I had to inform her that the bible isn't the thing supposed to keep you honest really (it's the threat of being convicted of perjury, which is a felony)
    and she was just like "Oh.."
    We could NOT stop laughing

    SO GOOD NEWS! That's what great about atheism! Being able to yell "I AM IRON MAN!" on the witness stand

    It was exactly the same with me. I had to get the hang of it, and now it's easy/fun. When you get to know the kids a little bit, you don't feel so awkward getting onto them when they're acting up lol.

    I suck at names too! Omg it's so hard. I can hardly remember the names of the 5 or 6 people I work with! O.O I just remembered today that a lady I work with I named Jackie, and all this time I've been thinking it was something that started with a "t". XD

    But yeah I think you'll enjoy it! I really do. I truly like it more each day. :)
