Other than that, though, I really enjoyed the book. I think if I could find fiction meant for adults that grabbed me as much as that series did, it would be a good thing -- seeing as how I am not 12, teach grade school or have an 11th grade reading level.
I made it. It's my first try. I have big plans to make it better soon. In the meantime, you can enjoy some Microsoft Clip Art photos that I found under "seniors."
And if you happen to know anyone who wants to write down their life story, have them contact me.

Your Score: Busy Body- ENFJ
73% Extraversion, 60% Intuition, 46% Thinking, 73% Judging
You manipulative busybody! You're what some might call the "backseat driver" of life. You know, the one who knows exactly what everyone else is doing wrong and how they should go about fixing it. You're always trying to change everyone else.
The strange thing is, you can generally get whoever you want, to do whatever you want. What's that? You want me to stop insulting you...well, alright...but only because you asked so nic...WAIT A MINUTE!
Stop sticking your cumbersome nose where it aint't wanted. You're like an oversized sniffer dog, trained to sniff out everyone else's problems, yet oblivious to your own.
For one you worry excessively. The fact that you're also incredibly sensitive to criticism probably has you on the verge of tears right now. Get a grip.
You have powers of manipulation unlike any other. You know all the gossip and you know how to ultimately use it as blackmailing material.
You could potentially be the ultimate evil villain... if not for the fact you choose to use all of your powers for good, rather than evil. How honourable. How admirable and praiseworthy. How pathetic.
While you're helping others out and pushing them into the limelight, you're left in the background to inhale the dirty smoke of their success. Nice one.

Did lots of work on the ol sticks n bricks in the past couple weeks.
In the "before" photo, you can see a blank white wall on the left. That's the wall we painted.
And in the updated pics of the dining room, we added a darker color of green on the wall and a new light.
Next stop: the bathroom!

This was the fear: A pair of men's white briefs that someone (construction worker? previous tenant?) had left on the top shelf of my storage closet.
I decided to tackle it with this tiny broom I have. The handle is maybe 3 feet long. So I carefully hooked the undies on to the end of the broom and walked with it dangling in front of me to the dumpster. That was when I discovered the second pair. I HAD thought there was just one pair. No. Two. So yet another trip to the dumpster, with some neighbors eyeing me cautiously. Oh, and one dirty white sock, too.

"Now since I'm a professional hobo," he said, "I have a service to provide." His services featured mostly window cleaning. And he pointed out the difference between a hobo - who is willing to work for his handout - and a bum - who just wants to leech off people.
Well, his scheme worked. I didn't need the window washed, but I did need a little karma. PROFESSIONAL karma.
