    I'm getting more chances and time with my brother's company to work on my programming and speed. He's being patient with me since i'm new at it. It makes me happy he's giving me this opportunity. It could turn out to be quite financially rewarding!

    I made a lady cry with joy at my window today. It's times like these that remind me why I love my job.

    This is really petty but I'm happy all the same.

    I was supposed to go in for a minor medical diagnostic procedure (see my recent health board post) that I really don't want to do because I'm just chicken that way. And the doctor's office called and said that they would have to reschedule me for next month because the doctor was called away and wouldn't be in the office this morning.

    Happy, happy, happy.

    This gives me another month to prepare myself mentally for the procedure. And a day to just chill the fuck out and enjoy the holidays.

    Well happy and still anxious. Waiting on my last grade to be posted so I can see my semester GPA. So far A's across the board. Meaning 4.0.
    All the hard work has paid off.

    Oh my gosh - I somehow missed all these and thought no one had responded! I always click the button to read unread posts, and it jumped to posts below these... I just happened to scroll back and see them today. Thank you so much, everyone!


    Thanks Moore! It's working out well so far. :)

    Right? Sometimes everything happens all at once. :) I had a great birthday, I'm loving actually contributing to our household, and I love the work I do, so... very happy at the moment, and ready for the holidays. :)

    thank you so much, Deacone! :)

    Thank you so much. :)

    Thanks, lady! :)

    Reasonably fast internets.
    We'll see how their billing and customer service works out.
    But, so far, so good.

    I spent Christmas Day with my bestie and her family which generously adopted me into their own. We have the same Italian background, so we literally feasted from the moment we awoke to the moment I left after midnight (I just got home) and they sent me home with bags full of leftover dinner and tons of treats and presents.

    Also, Lotus' former Daddy and Mom sent them a surprise box of gifts, all wrapped up and there were a few special things for me.

    I also got another big box chock full of baked goods from my friends Dee and John including a giant root beer candy cane, and jewelry that Dee made me.

    I'm extremely touched by the generosity of my adoptive family, all my friends both in person and here from Dims, my secret Santas, the cats' fairy cat-mothers, and a three day New Years Eve celebration invitation.

    Tomorrow another close friend is doing my hair as a Christmas gift, and Saturday or Sunday I'm going to meet and go to lunch or dinner with more Dims friends.

    Although I don't communicate with my blood relatives, the friends who've adopted me, and care about me have more than made up for it. I feel very loved.

    I just came online to check email since my bestie doesn't have good wifi, and the cats are playing with some of their Christmas presents, so many, in fact, that their full stockings have fallen off the 'mantle' several times.

    That my online supermarket had a good range of seafood (something that only seems to happen at this time of year)

    so I ordered 250 grams of each thing for a seafood feast

    I have alaskan king crab legs (pretty sure that will be like one or 2 at most)

    Balmain bugs

    and I am most excited about baby octapus


    also that I am blessed enough to be able to buy myself such yummy treats :)

    Also that I have started the process of sorting and storing my dies into their new homes :)

    Christmas is over, the stress of responsibility for having a perfect holiday has relaxed, and I can shop for groceries without being assaulted by "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" or "The Little Drummer Boy."

    Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum to one and all.

    Honestly, how could anyone think that latter song represented a good thing?

    Poor Mary's just gotten done with being dragged all over the Middle East for this Census nonsense, went through labor in the 35 B.C. equivalent of a parking garage without her family or even husband (Jewish -- she's unclean during the process so he's gotta avoid her), has to deal with three wise guys showing up with crates of potpourri, and probably wants nothing more than to finally, at long last, get some sleep.

    Then this kid shows up and starts banging away on his drum.

    Just the fact that she did not break the drum over his head and then stab him with the drumsticks is a Christmas miracle in itself!

    Had our Christmas yesterday. Though my sister and her boyfriend/niece were sick, and that isn't going to be fun when I catch it, it was a good time.

    Good company, fun games, Super Nintendo, card games and then watched Lord of the Rings later... I also got some Giftcards. One to Target, FlatTop Grill, Darden, and one for League of Legends (in game points). Also got a small tripod for my camera, a Dunder Mufflin (The Office) shirt, some lenses for my iPhone (macro and fish lense), a sticker for my car window, a mobile charger and some cookies my mom and everyone made the other day! So over all it was a decent Christmas for presents, and I got to spend time with most of my family.
