In today's Tulsa World, there was this birth:
Ellen In-The-Woods and Jeremy Jackson, girl.
Any guesses on the origins of that surname?
Speaking of births: it would suck to be a single mother. It would suck even more to be a single mother of twins or triplets, though.
Hourly wages suck. Not for the conventional reasons you may think, though. The reason is that I compare most of my purchases with hours worked. "Wow, Rachel, you just spend 6 hours pay on that and it was that boring day at work." And it doesn't matter how much I make per hour. I could be making $600/hour and I would still be thinking "That electric bill was x minutes of work." When it's REALLY bad for me, though, is when I'm eating something. "You realize that stick of gum you just ate was 30 seconds, right?" When I was in Houston and was salaried, this wasn't an issue. Probably because I spent like 80% of my waking time doing work and never had a chance to buy things. And last year I couldn't really factor in the work hours consistently. One week might be 80 hours, another 60. I doubt I'm the only one that does this, but no one else has ever talked about it.
