"I have a small debt of $0.75"

June 30th, 2009 at 10:59 pm

Ale announced over the phone...

So, how do you plan to pay for it? I said.

I don´t think that was the answer she expected.

I just paid my taxes and my translation cheque is late, so, I have the amazing amount of $5 available.

And, no, I don´t think she should be asking for credit (either from the little store two houses down or from the people at the Martial Arts Academy where she is attending summer school).

So.... I guess I´ll have to wait until I get home to see if she´s come up with a plan!

I couldn't wait!!!

so here's ONE picture....
This one would look soooo cool in one of those "fake" magazine covers, don't you think?

Anyway... for the time being, it's my new favorite! ROCK ON!

Kinda figured the cloning thing! ;)

...delegation is a wonderful thing!

I asked the nanny to chop everything I needed for the chicken spread... I instructed on her how to cook it and then showed her how to puree it in the blender... ta-da! the chicken spread was ready...

This morning... asked niece to make the sandwiches... ta-da! I gained about 2 hours of time to work on translations!!!

This afternoon is "lost" to work, though, since, really, there is NO WAY I´m going to miss Ale´s Bday party!!!

by the way, here´s the guitar I made her for her rock star costume...isn't it cute??

I´ll post pictures of the bday party over the weekend (don´t think I´d be able to log on again until then!!)


Yes! Yes, yes! I am IN!!!

woo-hoo... the company I told you about, the BIIIIG company that wanted some translations? They sent me a (very) small job yesterday... I promised them I'd work on it and sent it after 7pm, as I would not have internet access before then (ture)...sooooo... today, they sent me a 9 page document!!! still a small job, but, that means they liked the first one and are willing to "try" my services!... They also have 10 other documents (about 50-70 pages in total)...sooooo.... I think I've got them!!! This would be my "foot in the door" with them... so to speak... WOO-HOO-HOO! (plus, its HR stuff, one of my "favorite subjects"! and technical tend to be very difficult for me...)
