To the residents of the yellow Victorian who sell tomatoes:

You may have noticed the silver trailblazer driving slowly by your property twice a day for the last month or so.  If you have, I would like to take this opportunity to assure you that we are not canvasing the joint.  You have many adorable cats, and as people who have a rather nomadic lifestyle, we don't have the opportunity to own cats of our own.  Instead, we have taken to naming yours and watching out for them each day.  So don't worry about your possessions, and please pass on my compliments to Boots, Socks, Tiger, Fluffy, and Mr. Orange. 

Yours Respectfully,
Me

Dear Buttahatchee River,

Please stop overflowing you banks and causing your tributaries to do the same.  It's February and I need to work outdoors near you.  It is too cold to be wading knee-deep through any water, no matter how nicely named. 

Thanks in Advance,
Me

Dear People standing next to me at the Druids parade tonight,

    You should really remove your child from the ladder before you relocate it.  An adult holding each side of the ladder does not really provide enough stability during the moving process to guarantee that your child will not find himself on the ground.  Thankfully it worked okay this time.  Also, when relocating the ladder, you should check to make sure there is no one currently occupying the space into which you wish to move.  Should someone be in that space, as I was this evening, you should either refrain from moving the ladder or offer and excuse me and a reason as to why it is essential that you move the ladder.  Simply bumping into someone's side as shoving them out of the way is not sufficient.   Hopefully, these suggestions will help you during the next  six days. 

Respectfully,
The person standing next to you at the Druids parade, who you shoved out of the way while relocating your ladder

Well, I am once again in a place with no internet access.  Yeah! Farmerville.  But luckily the library in Ruston, which is only a half an hour away, has wireless access.  So I will be sharing various things from the last two weeks. 

First a letter:

Dear CSI Powers that be,

Why must you try to make Hodges likable? Why must you almost succeed? And even more, why must you do so to "Mr. Bluesky"?  I love that song, please don't ruin it for me. 

Yours till the end of the season (if not longer),
Allison

Second, a conversation:
PM (Project Manager): How long have you been here?
Me: Three months.
PM: Would you like us to get you a plane ticket home for one of the four-days
Me: That would be nice.

I will let those interested know what develops

Third, a rant:
Shovel testing sucks ass when your sick.  Wednesday morning I woke up with a sore throat which I thought would go away once I was up and about.  No such luck.  Instead, it got progressively worse, my legs started feeling shaky and I had the hardest time forcing myself to walk to my next shovel test, not to mention digging it.  Of course, this was an hour from our hotel so there was no way I could go back and by the end of the day we had ended up doing two miles.  GRRR.  Plus I had to sign my life away in order for Walmart to give me drugs.  Damn Methheads!

But on a happier note Walmart had Christy on DVD which was my favorite show in fourth grade and really stands up to repeat viewing.

1. I knew as soon as I accepted the job that other things were going to come in. So now I have archaeological people emailing me for interviews. I already committed to the other one, but now I'm going to be wondering if I could have gotten started in my actual field. Grrr. Why can't people get back to you in a timely manner?

2. Said guy who emailed me spelled my name wrong. How difficult could it be to get it right? I wrote it at the bottom of the cover letter that I sent him, and its in my email address. Obviously he sent the email to the correct place and spelled my name correctly there. Why not in the actual body of the email?

3. I listed my first item on ebay as I am trying to get rid of some of the clutter in my room. We'll see how this goes and then move from there. So, if anyone is in the market for a bank shaped like Big Ben with Peter Pan and company flying across it you should totally check it out.

4. A letter to Blockbuster:

Dear Blockbuster,
Why did you raise your prices? I was quite happy with you being cheaper than Netfix. There was no reason for you to go and be the same price. And, no, the coupon for a free previously viewed DVD does not make up for it.
Yours,
Me
