quickes (and I mean it this time)
  • We had our annual (which is to say this is our second, so it looks like it might be a tradition now) Chanukkah Party.  Whoopie!  I made Chinese food and BOY WAS IT GOOD!  Yummers.  Not a morsel of food was left.  I will post more info about the party later.
  • I am going to Florida tomorrow to see my father, stepmother, and some friends that are visiting from Scotland.  I will return Friday morning.  It's a quick trip, but it should be fun, and I don't have many opportunities to see the friends from Scotland.
  • I picked up my father's album from my photographer yesterday (yes, I really did get married over a year ago and we still haven't finished ordering pictures).  It looks fantastic.  It's gorgeous.  I'm so happy with it and I can't wait to get our album.  Except...  Well, except that the imprinted date on the front isn't exactly right.  I got married November 3, and it says November 13.  Only one digit off, right?  Could be worse.  If it had been anyone else's album...  But no.  It had to be my father's album.  So it wasn't my fault, and the photographer will get it fixed at some significant expense to her, but still, it was her fault, so I can't feel too badly about her expense, can I? 
  • I have been kicking some serious butt at work lately.  In a good way.  I'm getting through my work with amazing speed and agility.  And I'm producing quality work, which is the best part.  Most importantly, I'm modest about it.  Ahem.  Well, look, if I'm doing good work, I deserve to pat myself on the back about it, right?
  • My boss has also noticed my hard wook and I've been getting special kudos from him lately.  Also from his boss.  So obviously word is getting around.  Yay for me.
  • I have a bit of a stomach flu and I'm not really looking forward to getting on a plane tomorrow if I still have a fever and nausea.  Here's hoping I'm better by then. 
  • The only reason I'm at work is because I'm just that devoted.  Oh yeah, and I have no vacation time available.  But that's not the point.
  • My sweetie rocks.  A lot.
  • Car thieves are evil and should be punished.
  • Especially ones that set cars on fire.  They are especially egregious.
  • Book sales rock.
  • I've spent a lot of money at bookstores lately.  I love books.  A lot.
  • I think we need more bookshelves.  Or more storage space.  Heh.
  • My iBook is still at Apple waiting for a new logic board.  I am unthrilled.  I sent it to them on the 18th of December and it's looking like I won't have it back until next week.  I am most definitely not happy about this.
  • Did I mention that my Chinese food totally rocked?  Next year I'm going to do it again.  With even more variety.  So there!
  • I have to wash my sheitel tonight.  My dad's never seen it and the whole concept (I've never even told him about it) is going to seriously freak him out.  So at least it needs to look nice!
  • I almost said the concept would wig him out.  Then I realized that was a very bad and somewhat unintentional pun.
  • I now need to get back to work.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Ooh, tell us about the food (when you get a chance, of course).

Good news on the work front! Maybe next time they'll treat you better come raise time.

See my next post. If you want more details, let me know.

Maybe next time they'll treat you better come raise time.

Once we get through the rest of this crunch, my boss is going to try and push through a promotion for me.

Is there a photo of you in your sheitel somewhere?

weirdness. I was CERTAIN I was logged in as me when I first responded. Anyway, I didn't mean to respond as Seth. So here's what I wrote as me:

Not yet, but there will be soon, I'm sure. I pretty much look like me in it.

Speaking of your Sheitel...

Do you have a pet name for it? (I would if I wore one...) =0)

Yummy kosher chinese food...yum... And bad iBook...

Hope you feel better soon...we all look like the walking dead here on the West Coast.

Re: Speaking of your Sheitel...

Um, come to think of it, I don't have a pet name for it. Never occured to me. Any suggestions? I just washed my sheitel. I don't have the energy to dry it. It currently looks like a wet cat. I'm hoping I get to blow drying it before it dries in that stupid hairdo!

Yes, the chinese food was yummy. And kosher. And did I mention yummy?

I'm already feeling better. Yay for me. Hopefully this will be a trend that continues through the weekend.

Re: Speaking of your Sheitel...

Well, I'd name my "Harvey" like the rabbit, 'cause it's supposed to be unobstrusive, no?

Yes, yes -- we want to hear more about yummy, yummy kosher food!

Glad you're feeling better -- I hope it continues through the weekend. I'll say. This year has been nasty, nasty for the flu...
