She sent me some oyster crackers (we can't get 'em up here anymore), a Dove bar (and I know there's something else hidden under there - just haven't unwrapped that parcel yet). Then nice stick antiperspirent (sp) that looks like it could make Matthew Mcconaughey smell good and assorted magazines that I'm really interested in! Especially the one with Fran Drescher and her pom on the cover!!!

And like Sarah's parcel, mine was covered with all sorts of great stickers! She doesn't just send you something - the presentation alone is a gift! It gave me an idea for what I'm going to do to the parcel I'm going to send her next! Also - the U.S. Post Office is getting rich off of our Janice. I think we should take up a collection to help her out. If you can imagine, the box cost her $26 to send to me!


Then, I had my 2nd job interview today. It went GREAT! The VP said, "Well, I'm Sold!". He just wants me to meet with him, the president and another VP who I'll be working closely with sometime next week. I whipped my thank you email off just before this. I know we'd get along great! He loves dogs - so right there he had me! LOL
The recruiter thought they might not be able to meet my asking salary, but he had no problem giving me what I wanted, plus a couple of added perks (like getting benefits immediately) - and this is all after hearing that 135,000 Canadians lost their jobs in January alone.

This is why I say, no matter how done I get sometimes, there is ALWAYS light just around the corner. You just have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get to it. Once it's happened a couple of times, it does get easier to accept each time it happens!

Yay for me!

Wow, Janice is great!! But you can't get oyster crackers anymore?! WHAT is that about!?

I know! I don't get it myself. I grew up with them in the 60s and into about the mid-70s - then WHAM! Off the market in Canada! Christies used to make them here - they came in a red box. I love them in tomato soup!! If you use regular soda crackers, you have to crunch em up and they go soggy really fast - these guys just float along on top there and if you want them softened, you just sink 'em! LOL My cats and dogs also love them.

It really fries my back bacon that we can't get certain things here in Canada. When you ask, the company will tell you there's "not a big enough market" WTF is THAT all about? 33 million people isn't enough???

So yes - I've been reduced to getting them "contraband"

It's like when I send asprin with codeine to my aunt in Texas - I wrap them and claim them as "salt & pepper shakers". We get them over the counter here, but it's by prescription in the U.S.. The only reason I send them is that I know they're for her only and she's a retired nurse so she knows what she's doing.

That's insane! I can't believe they are using the excuse that there's not a big enough market. My dog loves them, too. Soda crackers are not the same at all! I'd be annoyed if that was my only option.

Aww - a sympathetic friend to the South! Thank you! Yah - they're great - you dip them in peanut butter or cheese whiz and the pets go bananas for them! They could market them for that also - pets are a huge industry these days afterall!

That's also why the Olive Garden closed here (or so we were told when we wrote to them). Never made any sense. There used to be lineups out the door both at lunch and dinner. When I worked close to one, I'd go there at least 3 times a week. We now have to make it a day trip over to Lewiston, New York to get to the nearest Olive Garden. And we've done it a couple of times. The border guards just look at us like we're nuts cuz when they ask, I usually go on a rant about products and services being discontinued up here.

I've also hit Tops "Friendly Markets" when I've been in Buffalo to pick up other grocery items you can't get here.

A few days ago Janice sent some special treats to me for my little dog Snuggles who has cancer. I was so overwhelmed by it that I just started balling when I opened the package. I'm SO blessed to have such a wonderful friend!
