    Judg, I did apply there, online. Went in the next day to show them my face in person, and discovered it was a 'secure site': no getting in without an appointment. Talked to someone via the intercom who said there wasn't anyone there I could talk to, and that I would receive an email if they wanted to interview me. Well, they didn't. I guess I don't even make the grade for a shipping clerk or custodian job.

    On to nicer things...

    The craft fair went great!

    First, I got a lot of chatting time with my friend on the drive up there. (And she brought kolaches! )

    Second, it was very cold during the morning. I could feel my legs just chilling down. Previous to my cold water baths, I would have thought this was a negative, but this time, I just thought, 'cool, I am activating my brown fat without even getting into the tub!'

    Third, managed to refrain from mentioning this to anyone, so I wasn't faced with THOSE looks.

    Fourth, got quite a bit of quilting and knitting done throughout the day.

    Fifth, many people liked my bags! Inner creative child feels validated!

    Sixth, I made $160!!!

    Seventh, wine and a cheeseburger at the end of the day. And someone else did the driving. Very nice. Then I fell asleep at 8:00pm, and slept through until 9:30am. Yep, you read that right: 13 1/2 hours of sleep!

    Today I am off to vote! I dislike the electronic machines (insert computer manipulation rant here!) and they no longer offer paper ballots at the local polling places(insert voter disenfranchisement rant here!) so I am driving up to the County Election Office with my voter registration card (insert don't mess with me, because I know the law rant here!).

    Since this is a trek, I am doing every possible errand that takes place on or near my driving route, to get the most from my gas. Ending with a visit with a friend on that side of town.

    Glad you made a good day out of it.

    No computer manipulation here. Votes are hand-counted in Canada. I've done a couple of them as a polling clerk, so I have direct experience of the counting process. And no, it is not inefficient. It only takes about half an hour for any one team to do the counting and reporting, political parties are allowed to have scrutineers supervising the process. Results are tabulated very quickly and the networks are calling the election as soon as polls close on the West Coast. It would go faster, but they're not allowed by law to declare the results before voting is actually over for everyone.

    I get 'chilled' here at work and always relish it even though being cold is less than comfortable. Every day is a CT day in my office.

    Cold thermogenesis, I think.
