annie phone conversation

Figured out how to get those studs out, and put in my Apple earrings (Andrew brought them from California). I was a bit grossed out at the idea of poking something THROUGH my ear MYSELF, ugh. It might take me a while to get used to this.

Getting lots of work done.

My site was mentioned in Internet Tourbus and WebScout today (both are electronic newsletters surveying the web) and am getting lots of new traffic and new subscribers as a result, yay! :-)

Talked to Lloyd Landa today...his and Karen's album is coming along wonderfully. They're planning to make it to Allison's housefilk this Saturday.

I got a call from Annie today (1 1/2). The phone rang, I said hello, Ruth said that Annie wanted to talk to me. Followed by silence.

    ME: Hello? Annie?

    ANNIE: Hi.

    ME: How are you doing today?

    ANNIE: Hi.

    ME: (starting to sing a song for her, a song too silly for me to mention here)

    ANNIE (interrupting): Bye.

She calls me Beebee. (Jeff is Deff). I bought a "Build Your Own Gingerbread House" for when I babysit the girls tomorrow. I'm not going to phone Ruth for permission first because I know she'll say no. (I love being an Aunt)
