SUSHI ROLLS

Cooking group was both a failure and a success today. We were supposed to be 5 people, but 2 never showed and didn't bother to call, which I find inexcusable, unless I find out later there was blood and hospital visits involved. :( We had a ton of food leftover, therefore, but that's okay as it was SUSHI. Martine brought the largest cucumber I've ever seen in my life. We made california rolls, spicy tuna rolls, cucumber rolls, tuna/mayo rolls, rolls with spinach, rolls with avocado, rolls with omelett and carrot and they were all GREAT. I'm a master at sushi roll-rolling. It's all in the thumbs.

Still no one for President in our club and elections are rapidly approaching. I talked to Jennifer today and she hadn't heard from anyone (out of over 100 people, arrrgh!!), but has a prospect (who is having an even tougher time of it than she is right now) to at least talk to about a co-presidency if nothing else. I'm stuck with my AWC work as the nominee question makes a difference for the website, the newsletter, the ballots and the presentation, so everything is on hold. And WHY can't people check their emails at least once a day and respond to them?! Is that really too much to ask?!!

My good-and-far-too-far-away friend, knuckie sent me some scrapbooking supply links today and one of them, DiBona Designs has some lovely ephemera sheets that are, alas, much too expensive at the moment.

Busy week ahead: Parent Meeting at the school on Monday, Book group on Tuesday (for which I have not read the book), and either a tupperware party or choir on Wednesday depending on if the tupperware party gets cancelled, which seems likely at the moment. We do however, have the trip to Brio to look forward to on Sunday, and we get PAID this week, hurray!

Question for gale_storm, thesidhe, reebert or anyone else who might know: how do you go about gluing things from transparency sheets to your collage pages? Doesn't the glue show? (glue issues AGAIN)
