Blog Hiatus

You knew this was coming, didn't you? LOL!

I need to take a blog hiatus until after Labor Day (in the U.S. it is September 7th this year).

I'm still looking for permanent work. My temp gig ends this month, however, they are looking into extending the gig if they can get funding. In any case, nothing is certain until you are dead. Furthermore, I need to put together an analytical writing sample for a job app and I want to get that done by this weekend. I'm also expecting a house full of guests the weekend of the 29th so house cleaning!

Those are my excuses. I know Ray is going to rip me.

Prayers appreciated! I remember all of you in my prayers on a regular basis. For instance, I almost hit a rabbit the other day and immediately sent up a prayer for Terry! I saw a gal with multiple piercings the other day and prayed for Adoro! LOL! I see food and I pray for Vincenzo! Besides, with Angela on vaca there is no point in continuing.

What, you see a woman who is my complete OPPOSITE and it makes you pray for me? Weird. I have NO piercings! Not even my ears!

I'm insulted. *pouting*

Or were you praying that I'd get piercings? That would be weird

Adoro: No, just wanted to heckle you and it worked! LOL!

Thanks, Belinda, Adrienne and Vin!

Nothing is certain until you are dead.

Well, installment contracts from the FDLIC (Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company) are. They have an uncertain, but fixed date.

That's where I was today. I'm betting that I'll be able to throw a big party with the profits off this policy when that day finally comes. [GRIN]

Ray: What are you talking about? You are going to live forever. In any case, did you spell my name correctly on the beneficiary line of the policy?

Enjoy your "time off!" LOL!

Sounds like a busy next few weeks for you. I'll be praying for the job situation. I know I was in the very same place a year ago. God bless you and hope to still see you on Twitter from time to time.

Love it when you say: COFFEE! I always giggle!

Cathy - praying for you. Mainly because you know Terry, but also because you're looking for work.

See you in September!

Cath - wouldn't you know just when you are on hiatus a tornado hits Mpls and disrupts the Lutrheran Convention. What were the odds of that happening. It hit the gay area too, and prom dresses, tiaras, and shoes and wigs were all over the downtown neighborhood surrounding the Convention Center. Lutherans and the CSJ Associates are devastated.

I'm still chuckling. Terry gets his first LJ award, but only 3.5 LJ's.

I'm going to have to make up an official LJ plaque so you winners can boast at your awards on your blogs!

Blogger Cathy_of_Alex said...

Larry: I know. It's a penance and a mortification. lol!

Ter: So, did you score some new wigs? I know you are always looking for a deal!

Ray: I'm not worried. By next month, you'll have forgotten that you awarded Ter anything. lol

How pathetic - I saw your comment on Father's blog tonight. How desperate and needy. Some blog hiatus.

Ter: You needn't be bitter. Notice I've been shamelessly commenting on your fine blog AND I don't need to register with you (yet anyway!) to do it! 'course you already know my credentials: goofy, loony and dopey.

Belinda: Hon, you are supposed to lure ME with chocolate! lol

Vin: Nice try. lol

Blogger belinda said...

Yes, your right Miss Cathy.

So I decided to share this cake with you from the cake wrecks blog. It's perfect.. chocolate for Vince and beer for Mr.Terry. I hope that there's enough for all of your dear readers.

*If I were feeding all of my blog readers I would only need a package of ho -ho's. Vince, do you like ho-ho's? hahaha

Blogger Cathy_of_Alex said...

Belinda: Thanks! LOL! I'm sure Vin will eat ho-hos. Be sure to offer him some Haagen Dazs with that! :-)

I keep thinkin' - she'll be back next week! She'll be back next week! Will the lobotomy show? Will she be able to write? Will she have to drink through a straw? Will it work this time?

So much to look forward to!

Oh Ray - if you're goin' out - we need more ice!

Ter: You mean will the plastic surgery scars show? They shouldn't since I went to the doc you recommended! You know, the guy you use for your work.

You should've gone to the MIA with us. Ray was nearly crying.

Yes send me some.

Blogger Terry Nelson said...

Did that happen already? I was going to go and surprise everyone. Alas! I was going to do a lot of things. Pray for me!
