Friday Randoms

Some Friday randoms:

*We've got Martins.
What are Martins you ask? Apparently they are small rodents similar to a mole or weasel. They like nesting under the hoods of cars (yes, more car trouble) and chewing up everything in sight. We took Js car in this week and found out that the transmission fluid pressure switch is broken. It's a cheap and easy fix, thankfully. BUT we also found out that the Martins have been playing under the hood. We were told to fill up panty hose with either dog hair or moth balls and tie to the inside of the hood to keep them away. Can we say fire hazard?!

*Karma is a wonderful thing. J was heating up a cinnamon roll in the microwave. He was making fun of me and all the sudden I see smoke coming out of the microwave! He put it in there for 2 minutes! TWO minutes! Lol... It was completely burnt and smoking up the house. Now we've got all the windows open and are freezing, but I cant stop laughing! Serves him right!

*Ive gotten two job offer/opportunities this past week! My resume has been out there for six months and Im just now getting calls. Things move very, very slowly in Germany. I dont know if Ill take/get either one, but it's nice to know that my resume really is circulating out there.

*I lost three followers this week. =(

*It's cold, dreary, foggy and snowy here in Germany still. Im SO ready for Spring and some good weather!

*I am loving Adele's new CD! She has such an awesome voice.

*I received an award from Leah
 over at Leah Miller's Author Blog. Thanks Leah! She's such a sweetie. We met in 10th grade when her family moved to my hometown and were instant BFFs. Unfortunately, they moved away soon after but through the all mighty power of Facebook, we reconnected!

*Big news coming next week, so stay tuned!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Don't sweat losing followers! It's quality, not quantity, right? :) We're here for you!

My nerdy-biologist self wants photos of the martins though...and I hate to tell you what you probably already know: They are smart buggers. The hair in the nylons thing may work temporarily, but it isn't a permanent solution...

Ok, all I could imagine was a bunch of tiny Steve Martins running around in your engine. Weird right?

And how many people do you think are going to ask if you're pregnant?

We had those crazy rodents under our hood too. The guy at the car care center told me to put the blue things you put in your toilet tank in different places in under the hood and that helps keep them out too.

Sometimes I get bummed when I loose a follower and wonder if I offended someone, but then I remember that I'm writing for myself, not them!

Looking forward to your news!

Kate said...

I think I know your news and I can't wait!!!

We just had our car fixed for the same thing. Apparently they chew through the wiring because the insulation wrapping/covering is plant based and oh so tasty (to them). They told us they put rat poisoning around the area to hopefully prevent it. :( Because they've had several people (from the base) bring their vehicles in and it's all the same problem.

Congrats on the job offers! It can be so frustrating when you are waiting. I hope you find the job you want!

Dog hair? In pantyhose? Really? That seems strange! I hope they go away soon :)

Looking forward to your big news!

Jen said...

Yay for a job offer! You will have to tell me all about it as I will be in your boat soon :)

Hilary said...

looking forward to hearing big news... Don't worry about the followers. Better to have less and ones who care, rather than more that are just there

Newly Mrs. Cravinho said...

I wanna hear the news!

I always hate losing followers, makes me feel like I wasn't interesting enough, but I know for sure that wasn't the case with you. :)

PS, left you something on my blog.

Love the randoms here! Next time you'll have to photography the cremated cinnamon roll for us! Glad your CV really is getting circulated - I can imagine it must've felt like a long 6 months - although nice to know that things really are moving forward at least, even if you don't take either of the positions right now.

I have been having nothing but trouble with my car lately. Maybe I'll post about it. I could use a rant post anyway...who can't??
