    I rather like that name, Umbrage©.
    Maybe I'll take it

    Hey, kellintulsa, I hope you're okay, and I'll answer your email tomorrow.

    I was Umbrage.
    One time I told bc(iah) the following, as Umbrage:
    "Are you giving me bobcat(in a hat)?
    He told me I was warped, which of course is true!

      Warped is a vey good way to be. Eveyone I deal with never know what I'm going to do next. That includes me. Talk about spontaneous.

    Hi Bobcat and yeah I am starting to really like this site and the people on it. The new job was a bust he didn't want to pay me an hourly wage just wanted me to work for tips in a restaurant that isn't that busy and I would have been lucky to make 15 bucks a day if that. Have a great lead on a job for 10 an hour just have to hold on until Monday.
