Hey everyone, been a long time

Sorry I haven't kept up with my page. I've been really busy at work, so I keep forgetting to get on here.

Anyway, some good news first. I finally got hired on at Caterpillar after a year and a half of doing contract work! I'll be doing the exact thing I'm doing now, except I'll be a Cat employee instead of going through an agency.

Besides that, I haven't really been up to that much lately. We've had just about the worst winter in about 10+ years so I'm hoping for some warm weather soon.

I can't wait to go to Seattle to see Jamie and David, and hopefully Lindsay and Craig if they can go at the same time. I haven't seen those guys in a while so I can't wait to visit.

Hope everyone is doing well!

    Glad you took my email to heart :) Congratulations on going full time! That's really exciting! You're welcome here whenever you get a ticket and get out here! Our weather has been pretty mild...50s and sunny this week. :)

New post finally

Hey everybody, we got our first real snow so I'm stuck inside for the night so I thought I'd make a new post.

Anyway, I moved into a new apartment a couple of weeks ago. It's soooo nice to be on my own. I was going to move in with a couple good friends from church initially, but they can't right now so I got my own. I'm lovin it, though, so I might have to reconsider the whole roomate idea.

Anyway, I'll get some pictures up sometime so everyone can see my decorating skills haha. Hopefully I'll remember to come on here more often because I always seem to forget to.

Hope everyone is doing well!
  • DessertDiva
    IT'S.ABOUT.TIME!!

    Let me know if you want to learn how to post pictures.

    Start posting more often! We'd love to hear from you!

  • stylinmama
    Hey. I'll comment even though I'm not one of your "friends". :) Congrats on the apartment! Hope your job is going well!

  • whipsmile
    well finally! I don't need pictures of your decorating skills, I'll just stop over. :-)

    I don't want to hear it - I'm jealous :( You're not allowed to have fun without me!

  • dragonqueen95
    boring.......i know i snowed bill but the snows gone already and u need to make another post about hoow green it is but still how freezing it is.
    by dragonqueen95 at 01/06/08 2:52PM
  • dragonqueen95
    and im still not on your friends list.....wats up with that!!!!
    by dragonqueen95 at 01/06/08 2:52PM

Not Bill

This is not Bill. This is Jamie posting as Bill because he can't get motivated to post on Pleonast. We still love him.

Bill needs friends. Bill also needs a woman. So hook a brother up.

Why do I have a feeling that this post will be deleted by Bill? Can't blame a girl for trying.
Bill's coming to Seattle to see me in 2 weeks! Wooo hoo!!

A little about Bill...

He works as a Mechanical Engineer for Caterpillar LWL Hydraulics in the Wheel Loaders and Excavators Division. I just copied that from his signature on his email.

He turned 26 on July 1 and he loves to spill things and knock things over. Call it a hobby.

He's the most loyal, dependable, trustworthy, Godly friend. I can't say enough good things about him...he's my brother from another mother. He's also very funny - rarely does he not have a smile on his face.

Ask anything else you want to know and I'll answer the question for you or get Bill to do it himself. Let's rally him and get him to post!!!!!!!

EDIT:

Hey guys, thought I'd finally write something on here since Jamie hacked into my page. I've been really busy at work lately, but I'll try to get on here as much as I can.

My sister and a lot of people I know have been on here quite a while, and I've been meaning to join up but I'm a HUGE procrastinator (just ask Jamie) so I never did. I have a lot of friends, but a lot of them are pretty worldy, so it's always nice to meet new Christians.

Even though Jamie said so, I don't spill things as much anymore. I just got a bad rap after I spilled some chocolate on her couch that never came out (Bill stain...lol).
