Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

I've been working...

...on that stuff about Shillings for hours already today and for the moment, I'm bored with it so I'm going to take a break. I've been calling restaurants all morning. My ear is getting soggy from sweat and the phone is about to start dripping so screw that for now.

Last night I went to my pool league. The week before, I was the only person from my team who showed up. That week I learned that our team had been dissolved because the captain was stealing the dues that we paid every week instead of turning the cash over to the APA. So, most of us were listed as owing the APA a LOT of money. Personally, I "owe" them $90. I never played ONE TIME without paying my measly 7 dollar dues.

Our team is sponsored by the guy who owns our home bar. When the malfeasance was discovered, he decided to pay the APA all the money that was owed and they began another team. Last night was the first night that we played together. We are the only ALL GIRL team in our local league. One nice thing about playing with a bunch of girls is the fact that we all seriously just want to have fun!

We have a few good players and a couple of new players, New to the game of pool, not just new to the league. One of them is a 65 year old woman with lung cancer. Talk about someone seriously out to have fun! That woman is the most pleasant person I've met in a very long time. The fact that she's on our team at all should give you an idea of her chutzpah.

I had planned on inviting my team to my birthday party but the team disbanded so I mentioned it to my new team. One of them works at Faces and she works Saturday as does at least one other team member. I've known them for a long time. Dawn, the captain, said that I should have my party at Faces on Friday night and if I do, she'll make a nice buffet for me.

They also have music so I think I'll just do it like that. I won't have to prepare hors d'oeuvres and I won't have to clean up my house the next day (which would actually BE my birthday). My birthday is the 29th of this month which falls on a Sunday. The party will be the Friday before that, the 27th. Anyone out there who would like to come to my birthday party can just come on out to Faces on Power's Ferry Road in Marietta on Friday the 27th of this month. The more the merrier!

I would just LOVE to be surprised by the likes of Anne Arky, Limerick Gal and Emily! Of course, I love surprises so I'd like to see someone show up that I never would have expected to show up. Even JQ could come to my party if he brings a nice enough gift. Who knows? After about 17 shots, I might even attempt to dance with him.

I really, really want to keep writing but I have something that I have to take care of. Let me get that out of the way so that I can sit here and write without other stupid stuff to mess with my head.

Okay. But I opened up my mailbox and didn't find the airline tickets that you were supposed to send me!

When I go over, I want my own room and for Stewi be in my room at nite.

Then when I wake up, I like my eggs fried over easy and one sausage and a hash brown to go along with it. If JQ is comin' - I'll have my breakfast in my room, thank you very much.

In the afternoon, I may want a hamburger well done with lettuce and tomatoes and ketchup with fries and a glass of ice tea - but not of the real kinds - of the canned powder ones. You can throw a couple of ice cubes in there if you want.

I'd also like a free pool lesson. I play pool, but I've never beaten anyone.

I may also need a small allowance of $20 a day in case I want to go outside and investigate my surroundings.
