I don't know if I can keep my job as I'm too slow. I'm doing my best, and that's not good enough. We'll see what happens, I guess. to visually impaired people, this is a word of warning because I understand that this has been a problem for some of us in the past as I'm working with an autodialer making outbound calls. I can't do callbacks, fill out credit card forms, fill out feedback screens or disposition the calls quite as fast as the average sighted person, and they are being knit picky. Later all.

I just watched the Spinal Tap movie, and though interesting, there are a few famous scenes in which I can't remember exactly what happened. For instance, in the airport scene, where did the metal detector find metal, on the guy and why were the other band members laughing? I can kind of formulate my own idea, but I'd like to know for sure.
Anybody want a rotten cold? It's absolutely free. "later."

After going to the sound recording school called Recording Associates, and realizing that wasn't going to work, I went to Portland Community College for a while until a depression set in and I lost interest in schooling as well as my Pell Grant. I worked at Industries for the Blind for a few months until I found out that I was pregnant. Oops, there goes another career that I was going to persue. I had decided to become a massage therapist but decided that I would stay home with my baby for the first few years of his/her life and I didn't want to forget everything I learned. I realize now that there was probably a way around that, but again, hindsight is always 20-20. My daughter is now 20 years of age, and will soon be an assistant manager at a Sally's Beauty Supply store nearby. She has also graduated from Image Designers, a local cosmetology school, as an esthetician. She still needs to take her state boards.
In the summer of 1991, while crossing a very busy street near our apartment, with my daughter, Elise in my baby pack, I was struck by a car and suffered a broken ankle which needed emergency reconstructive surgery, as well as a broken collar bone and a hairline crack up my shin. How lucky Elise and I were to be alive. After a lengthy wait, a settlement was made with the driver's insurance company, and I purchased the manufactured home where I currently reside with my husband Steve, Elise, and my critters; a dachshund mix, four cats, three of which are Elise's, I might ad, :) a guinea pig, and a couple of birds. One of the is a canary and the other a parakeet. They live in the same cage which is downright strange. I guess nobody told them that a canary and parakeet aren't supposed to be room mates or even like each other, but they insisted on sharing their lives together.
I currently work at a call center since getting laid off from another in 2008 where I had been for 9 years. This center specializes in fund-raising. Though the pay isn't good, and we've had quite a battle with the software being used, it's rewarding. I've missed a lot of work due to my adaptive software not working hand in hand with the company's. My husband, Steve owns a CNC routing business near downtown Portland.
