A Real "Stinky" Halloween Cat!

As a good Engineer would do, and a good Engineer he is,
we had a "project" to ensure the turn out of Mr. Pumpkin's face!

The tools, ya gotta have the tools!

Me cutting "him" open


(yes I'm in my p-j's sorry,
but on a Sunday morning that's what ya get!)

We found a few seeds that were alread growing inside...
I'll try planting them so maybe next year we'll have our own pumpkin!

I had the Engineer carve! And I think it turned out quite well!!!

Oh what a day! My translation was a success! Mr. Beale (International Marketing & Sales Rep.) was more than enthusiastic with my translation. In fact, he thought I was EXCELLENT!
Moreover, I was able to meet with all the "big bosses" and authorities of the local Airport who ALL complimented me on my job and on how good I was at my translation. Some of them even asked me if I wanted to be their personal assistant and gave me their business card to send my résumé to them to have in case of need. I am so happy that this went well, and it was super easy for some reason...... I just hope that this isn't a lucky streak!

Lost in Translation...

Tomorrow I will be translating for the world representative of Steril-Aire at a conference here in Cagliari. Today I met with Mr. Beale for a briefing and run-through of his presentation. We "rehearsed" his speech and my translation from English to Italian. I'm glad it went quite well! Tomorrow will be more difficult as there will be OVER 100 PEOPLE in front of me! I've gotta remember to pretend they're not there! HELP! I'm getting the jitters!

This is what he will be talking about:

"Steril-Aire has solutions for nearly every building type.

Our multi-patented UVC Emitters™ are safe, yet powerful. Our UVC lights work within your existing heating and air conditioning system to kill both surface and airborne microorganisms and prevent the spread of infectious diseases caused by viruses and bacteria.

In addition to the health benefits, they also save money by reducing HVAC energy costs and eliminating the need for costly coil cleaning programs. Steril-Aire germicidal UVC lamps are the best equipment in IAQ technology today."

On their web site there's a cute video on "Mold Wars" that explains a little of what this Emitter does!

Nick's Homecoming

So my brother Nick went to RB Homecoming this weekend. A bunch of kids got together and rented a party bus to go out together for dinner and then on to the dance. They met at a friend's house and then all got on the party bus there. My dad & Nancy went over to take pictures. Nick's date is Channel Vasquez, she's in his Seminary class (and may I add, really cute! Way to go Nick!) I like how they coordinated their colors... good thinking!!!

Streptococcal Pharyngitis A.K.A. Strep Throat

No wonder I was feeling so tired and achey .... I have Strep Throat! I was getting a little worried that at the "tender age" of almost 30, I wasn't gettin' with the program anymore!!! I've taken antibiotics for 12 hours now and unfortunately, tomorrow I've got to go to work - no one is there to substitute me.... what a bummer. Well at least I got some rest today and I hope not to have a fever tomorrow and feel much better in the morning. I'll just be contagious to every one! I really hope it doesn't turn into scarlet fever which is common over here!

Randomness of Stinky part 2

I was making our bed the other day and for some reason stinky just had to help me make it! Every time I would try and spread the sheets out onto the bed he would run and bounce on them! After a few attempts I decided to close the door to the room and make our bed in pece..... I took the old sheets to the hamper and when I got back this is what Stinky did!

Can you see him hiding! ???

As I would get closer he would poke his nose out...
