I hate wrong numbers. I know it's not your fault that you dialed a 9 instead of a 7. However, it is your fault that you INSISTED that my name was JULIE and you misdialed me at 8 in the morning.

Maybe it's because I hate talking on the phone, period. Even to people I know. I'm a multi-tasker and handling the phone is a pain. Maybe i just like the quickness and ease of email. I like machines, they intrigue me.

My grandma's convinced that machines are going to destroy the world and goes out of her way to talk to a human first. My mother in law is like that too. She can spend HOURS on the phone. That's not for me.

Today I went to the post office and now they have a machine to send your packages, no human interaction necessary! Not that I am against human interaction, I'm just against standing in line to get human interaction. Now you just put your package on the scale, follow the touch screen, and voila! You're done! Thank god.

Jenny, Jenny...who can I turn to?

We get TONS of calls for "Stewart Green." He's so irritating, that Stew. I don't even know him, but he bugs.

I saw those machines, and I was quite intrigued by them. But unfortunately for me, they don't accept international global mailers -- BAH!

Saw your featured craft, did someone teach you that or did you think of it yourself. Thank you, I appreciated it immensly.

If you mean the jello, no, I learned to do that from a cookbook and have seen it at every Hawaii party I've ever been to.

As far as the pumpkins, yes, I made that up myself. I just took an x-acto and started sculpting away.

Oh Jenn, you know you and I are on the same page with hating using the phone. I'd be super perturbed to be roused from ym daily thing at 8am for a wrong number. In these parts, we get the rudest wrong-number callers who just hang up once we say they've dialed wrong. I suppose that's better than arguing that you are who they say you are, no matter what.

Also, I saw that machine at the USPS the other day too and wondered and pondered and still went to the person at the counter (no line). I just may do it next time though!

Hummm...I don't know that I'd use the post office machine, either. I'm just not into the "do it yourself" lines at places. I've never liked the check your own groceries line as well. Just call me old fashioned - ha.

Yeah I don't like do it yourself groceries either, I'm not a good bagger.

I'm not against human beings, I just hate waiting in line and them asking me what hazardous this that and the other I have. Nothing perishable, nothing liquid. Sheesh. You'd think I was transporting squid.
