Adventures In Canning

I learned how to can things this year, and we had a ton of fun!
I made pickles, and peaches so far, and this week we were going to do tomatoes. Before we started tomatoes, my mom assigned me and aria the task of cleaning the big jars before she got home. No big deal right...Wrong!
It started off with aria washing the jars and I rinsed and dried them. We had the music blaring in the kitchen, and as aria was grabbing the jars on the bottom of the box, she let out a ear piercing scream, and there is where we made a new friend. We named him Fred the Fierce. He was a humongus wolfe spider. He had made his home out of one of the jars, and it looked like he had a mate for a while, and then ate her. We first thought he was dead, but upon sprinkling water on him, he moved. IT WAS ALIVE!!!!! After much screaming and freaking out, we sealed the jar, and left him on the counter. We made video tape of finding him (which I will on later). After that, we went back to washing more jars, no more suprises. We did find that Fred likes to dance to music that was blarring beside him. Aria, feeling more secure about this than me, grabbed fred in his sealed jar, and proceeded to "dance" with him. She danced, twirled and Moshed with him, until we felt bad and put him back to rest on the counter. Eventually we noticed he didnt dance as well without air. Instead of using a jar lid, we used plastic wrap and poked holes in it. He sat in the kitchen for the rest of the day, until mikaela got him, and when we unvailed him to her, she ran...hehehehee. We put him outside, and I hope he doesnt creep back in the house.
Oh fred, I will miss thee.

I switched to beta because I can, and because I am having a hard time commenting on other blogs now. Maybe this will help, or make it worse.

One good thing that brightens my day.....

I have the time off to go to Oregon coast and Alberta with my family this october!

This is how I feel on some days
Oh September...

School starts! Yea! Tony is going to his first class in UBC. Yesterday he was pretty nervous sounding before he left for Vancouver. Hopefully he got some sleep, and hopefully he doesnt get lost on his first day ( I would on that campus). I would be terrified if I had to get around that place. I am at work after a 3 day weekend. I loved it, but now back to working, and its getting annoying!

This job is so frustrating some times. I work at a call center, I do technical support for printers.
We have to troubleshoot the issues people have with the printers over the phone. The printers are on the bigger side, but they are easy to get into, and you cant break them easily. Since these printers are used by corperate companies, many people who talk to me think they are above troubleshooting anything, and demand technicans or replacement printers. I am sorry people, because you have a paper jam and needed this printer working yesterday, does not give you any reason to have a technician or replacement printer. They shout back at me that they dont "deal" with printers, and they are not opening the printer up to find a paper jam. They think its ridiculous to have to find a paper jam, or take out a toner and change it. Boo Hoo to you! I am able to walk ya'll through it, and have walked 90 year old grannies through it. They are more willing than you are to find a paper jam. I really hate dealing with people who think they are too good for opening a door of a printer. Bahhhh!!!
Had to rant a while, otherwise I will loose it. My coworkers and I are suprised that nobody had gone postal yet here.
