Yeah, it's snowing, and snowing a lot, and I shoveled at least 6 inches of snow off the front walk this morning, but SUNY Potsdam only cancelled classes until noon. I'm currently waiting for 11:30 to roll around so I can call the office (again) and see if I'm needed there. If not, I don't think I'm even going to bother to come to campus today. My only class is an independent study project, and I can work on that while I'm at home. Heck, I could work on it right now. But yeah. Not sure what's going on. All I know is that it's nearly 10 am and my street hasn't even been plowed yet. O_o This morning brought the longest list of school closings that I've seen since I lived in central NY. It's crazy.

Might straighten up the living room and then do some homework. We'll see.

edit: All classes cancelled. Freezing my butt off. Wondering if I have to go to work - called and left a message, since it rang a bunch of times and then went to voicemail. Hoping I don't have to leave. BRR.
purpleparadox: (Glee!)
I think this year has treated me pretty well. I got back into grad school and haven't had a grade lower than a 3.7, I got off unemployment and have a real job again, I patched things up with Bryan and we managed to plan a wedding in 5 months, and we actually have a place to live! On top of that, there's the whole PhD in Videogames thing (XD) going on. 2010 ended well, and 2011 shows a lot of promise.

Tonight's plans involve going over to Kit's with lots of wine, hoping that she's healthy enough to enjoy said wine, and spending time with some of my favorite people. Even Morgan's going to be up here! Bryan may or may not go, considering his opinion of Morgan, but that's his decision. I'm not gonna let it ruin my New Year's. I haven't seen Kit in ages, and I miss her and the dogs. And I haven't seen Morgan in about a year, give or take. It's gonna be a good night, I think.

I don't even have to worry about waking up for Levitt tomorrow! I'm still not used to that. At least my weekend shifts are now on Sunday nights, so not only can I sleep in, I can sleep in stupidly late if I wanted to. Usually by that time of night, anyway, I've run out of fun things to do, so it'll be my designated homework time. :)

But yeah. Happy New Year's Eve to everyone! :D
purpleparadox: (@_@)
Okay, so those 40 hour work weeks combined with 9 credit hours of classes and a million hours spent outside of class working on projects? Finally caught up with me today.

I am unbelievably exhausted. Totally, utterly exhausted. I mean, when my supervisor at work offers to let me leave to go buy coffee, you know you're beat.

In other news, Jacob actually apologized for what he said last night. I never expected him to - he doesn't seem like the kind of guy to apologize for things. He blames his medication for the way he acted. Figured he'd do that. Still doesn't stop what he did from sucking.

Part of me honestly wants to sleep through the next six weeks, and just recharge for the coming semester. At least I found out my work schedule for the Levitt Center for the spring - pretty much the same schedule I have now, but with two nights of Robert the Awesome Co-Worker instead of just one! It will be very awesome. I also have my requisite shift with a Gamma Sig girl - I think it's my punishment for quitting the sorority. (Yes, I was in a sorority. It didn't end well.)

But yeah. Tonight is going to be spent watching Bones, wishing my fishtanks weren't on timers so I could zone out on watching the fish-ohs swim, and waiting for Bryan to come home.

:D

Word count: 25,171

Outline: Rewritten from chapter 6 on to make more sense with what my characters have done with themselves

Sanity level: I'm two steps away from speaking in LOLcat, oh hay guise i wroted a novel


I promised myself a NaNoWriMo coffee mug if I managed to get to 25,000. Since I hit that tonight (which I didn't expect), I bought the mug! If I get to 50k, I'm getting myself a t-shirt, and Bryan is buying me something as well.

Someday I want to be able to donate a ton of money to NaNoWriMo, so I can get a phone call from Chris Baty, and go eat pie with him. XD

I really can't believe how quickly this is going. I may have to bring back some more of the old RP characters and write some short side stories that take place after the end of the novel, to keep me busy until December.

In other news, if you hear about a disgruntled computer lab worker setting her co-worker on fire tomorrow, that would be me. I hate working on Saturdays, solely because of my co-worker. I hope I get to work with Robert and Nathan for all my shifts in the spring. Today was crazy at the non-credit office, my main job - two of my co-workers were out, and my supervisors were busy all day, so for most of the day it was just me. It was crazy. And lonely. I hope Michelle's having fun in NYC!

For those of you on my NaNo filter who may have missed it, I posted a bit of story up. If you feel like reading it, go ahead. Leave comments. Or something. ^^;
purpleparadox: (Cranky Em)
Oh my lord. I found one of my backup CDs, back from when I first figured out I should be backing up my important computer crap. This thing is like a time capsule! It's got the first version of the story I'm rewriting for NaNoWriMo, a million pictures that are so tiny now that my monitor shows things in 1600x900 resolution (instead of 800x600), bad fanfiction, and loads of pictures of people I used to talk to online back in 2002 and 2003. Wow. This thing is a friggin' goldmine. XD

In other news, I applied for a job. I don't think anything will come of it, but I need to get a job other than working as a student assistant. I'd be working tech support for one of the local ISPs, which would actually be something in my field, rather than working in CLEAR. I love it there, don't get me wrong, but I think working for Fused Solutions might be a better career move, yanno?

Speaking of work, I get to work at Levitt tonight. Yaaaay.
purpleparadox: (Default)
I've been quiet lately, I know. I spent the weekend in Lake George, and purposely didn't bring my laptop, so that explains this weekend's absence. I've been reading everyone's entries, but haven't really had much to talk about.

I've re-discovered my love for Dream Theater. They're a prog-rock band that Justin introduced me to back when we were dating, back in 2001. We got to see them twice in concert, and I really love their stuff. I fell out of the habit of listening to them when they took a turn towards the metal side, and I wasn't a huge fan of metal back then... Now, my tastes have changed, and I'm rediscovering them and remembering old favorite songs, and it's awesome.

I get very frustrated when the girls from the sorority I was in call me directly and ask me to cover their shifts at the computer lab. They expect me to take their shifts because I'm a 'sister'. I don't want to work for them because I literally can't (I'm working 40 hours a week for the college, and I can't work any more), and I don't want to work for them on principle - they ONLY talk to me when they need something, and usually it's covering one of their shifts. Just because I'm working at Levitt doesn't mean it's my only job, and I can't drop everything to work your shift. Plan better, and post to the damn email list. It's there for a reason - so you can find someone to cover your shift.

I'm bordering on the edge of wanting to hide for no reason. Yesterday afternoon, all I did was curl up in bed and watch Bones for 5 hours. I'd like to do that tonight, but I have to go to yoga. I'll feel better after yoga.
purpleparadox: (Dexter)
I swear, Lily Allen sounds like Lila from season 2 of Dexter when she talks in Knock 'Em Out. It's cool and slightly unnerving, considering how friggin' psycho Lila was.

I have no life whatsoever anymore. I am defined by my jobs, my classes, and that's it. I am Bethlynn Hoey, Graduate Assistant. I am "one of the Hoeys", good at videos and graphic design and 99% of what is tossed at me in class. There's no time to be myself - the me who likes to sit and watch TV for hours, and read books, and do crafts, and drink wine and sleep in late and watch old anime. I feel... stifled, I guess.

Why the hell did I think working 40 hours a week in addition to taking classes was a good idea?


NaNoWriMo is going to be insane. At least while I'm pounding away at the keyboard I can be myself. I can ramble about nonsense and call it noveling, I can live vicariously through my characters and have some fun.


My friend Alex is coming up next weekend. I'm somewhat excited - I haven't seen him in, what, four years? I'm not getting my hopes up too much, though - he said he was going to come up in April and never did. It'll be the first time we've slept under the same roof in 6 years, too. (Yeah, Alex is an ex boyfriend as well as a friend. He's one of the few exes I'm actually friends with.)

I don't want to go to work.
purpleparadox: (Fall)
It's Wednesday, which means it's my early day. I get out of work at 1:30, and done with classes at 3:15, which means I can do some midweek cleaning! I've also got my first yoga class tonight, so here's hoping that goes well. (At least I know if I don't like it, I can get a refund)

My counseling appointment yesterday was a disaster. It got to the point where I was stuttering, couldn't get a coherent thought out, it was miserable. I've started writing stuff down I want to go over in counseling, so I can spit it out more coherently instead of sitting there, fidgeting, and going "ah shit I can't form a sentence". I almost cried at the end. Ugh.

Work yesterday was okay, though, once I calmed down. And class was fun - I spent three straight hours drawing up stuff for my flash project, and putting together the beginning of my game. Once I put the music in and stuff, I might put the intro up here for everyone to see! :)

I get to work the farmers market this weekend with Bry, since one of the girls at the computer lab wants to switch shifts with me. I missed working the market. It's nice to be outside for a few hours, soaking up the sunshine and talking to nice people. And now that I know how to sell wine, I can actually help Bry instead of just sitting there working on punch embroidery.

Watched the first episode of the new season of Dexter last night! It was intense, and a little depressing. I liked it, though. I've been waiting for this since January, hahah.

I should probably brush my hair and get ready for work....

ps- I'm back on twitter. If you've got twitter, follow me: bunzilla82.
purpleparadox: (Poupee Girl)
Well, I survived a second week of classes and work. I'm amazed!

I'm going to work on getting brave enough to wear Loli to work or class. I used to wear it nearly every day in the spring - granted, I didn't wear it to babysitting, and I would get some strange looks in class, but the professors didn't bat an eye. It's half tempting to set up my portable closet in my office in Dunn and hang all my Loli clothes in there, and just change before class.

Speaking of Loli! I bought some theraputic ruffles today. I bought this skirt, this blouse, and this jumperskirt. Bryan will probably give me 'the look' and say "Well, it's your money, dear." I haven't bought anything new since springtime, so I think it's time. I'm hoping to wear the red skirt to the office - not sure if it'll fly, but it looks a lot tamer than my Alice in Wonderland skirt and my puppy skirt. (It should fit better than they do, too.)

Anyway, meme time! I'm going to catch up today and do two. :D

Day 06 - Your Day

I'll tell you about my day yesterday, since my day today is only three hours old. :P

Yesterday, I woke up at 3 am, when Bryan's alarm went off to remind him that he's gotta work the farmers market at 7 in a town two hours away. I rolled over and slept until 6 am, then crawled out of bed, put my bathrobe on, and internetted for two hours. (I also got dressed somewhere in there.) Then, around 8, my friend Michelle came and picked me up for work, and we went to work. Beth Ann was using Michelle's computer when we got there, so we wandered off to get coffee, and then came back and worked all day. It was insane yesterday - I didn't realize we had two events on campus today, so I was doing a lot of extra stuff in addition to my usual answering the phones and charging credit cards. It was busy, but fun. (We've got a triathlon and a piano competition happening on campus right now.) At 3, I finished up at CLEAR and puttered around for 15 minutes before giving up and going to the computer lab to wait for my shift to start. My co-worker, Umer, had the same idea. (I used to be a little afraid and very annoyed with Umer, but now that he's opened up and talks to me, I actually don't mind him too much.) I worked from 4-6 at the computer lab, and Umer talked my ear off the whole time, alternating between telling me about his family and wishing he had money for one of the new iPod Touches. Then, at 6, I went home, dealt with a grumpy Bryan, talked to Michelle online for a little bit, gave up on the internet, and crawled into bed with my iPod and Dexter at 8. I watched the gleefully gruesome misadventures of Dexter for a few hours before I passed out.

And that was my day!

Day 07 - Your Best Friend

I don't know if I have a best friend anymore. I used to. Her name was Rin, and we were very attached to each other. We used to spend lots of time talking to each other online, and sometimes we'd talk on the phone. I think the reason why we started drifting away initially was work and stuff, but when I had some issues with Bryan last summer, she told me I should dump him. I ended up doing exactly the opposite, and she is still of the opinion that he's not good for me, so she stopped talking to me before he and I got married. I'm still bitter about that, honestly. I mean, none of my friends thought Franco was good for me, but they still stuck around, even when I was being really dumb and sticking with him.

I guess the closest I have to a best friend right now is Michelle. We work together, and we're a lot alike - both socially awkward, both into nerdy things, and we both ramble on about random stuff. Michelle would fit in perfectly in my family, eheh. I'm pretty comfortable around her, and she always listens to me, just like I always listen to her. I hope I don't scare her off.


The rest of the days )
purpleparadox: (Default)
It still has the same effect - too much, not enough, still a zombie. I'm nursing a cup of french espresso roast coffee in hopes that the possibility of extra caffeine will wake me up.

I think Bryan's expecting me to microwave breakfast. I dunno. He's sitting at the other side of the kitchen table, looking at his computer all cute and sleepily. I wish I could read what goes on inside his head. I bet you it's something like "lol internet" or something like that, to be honest, but you never know.

I am very frustrated with one of my co-workers. She's a temp, she only comes in three days a week, and when I went to go do her morning duties since she wasn't here, I noticed that not only had she not checked the phone messages since last Thursday (!!), she also did absolutely nothing on Monday. I mean, it felt like I did nothing on Monday, but I actually got a lot of filing and data entry done. Filing just seems like I get nothing done because the actual folders are such a mess, and I keep having to correct the other student assistant's mistakes. It frustrates the everloving crap out of me. But finding out that the temp did nothing, when she actually had work to do? (She had a batch or two of credit cards to run - usually we don't run them unless there's at least 5, and there's 10 sitting in one folder and another folder's got at least 4) And finding voicemails from LAST THURSDAY? Ugh. I'm just a graduate assistant, but if I were higher up, I would say something. But I can't. And it frustrates me.

Anyway. I should find something to eat, or take a shower, or both - not necessarily at the same time. Guh. Do I have to be awake?
purpleparadox: (boop)
It's Monday! Which means back to work again. I'm feeling a lot better, but that's probably thanks to the medications - I'd probably still be in bed right now, and would have spent the weekend in bed, if it weren't for the prednisone.

I did a LOT of cleaning this weekend. The house sparkles like Edward Cullen now. Even the kitchen. And the kitchen was nasty. Now I'm not ashamed to have people come over now! :D

Also did some weddingy stuff last night - printed out place cards, and started replacing the boring old plain cards in the frames I have with the cute new ones. I'm gonna try to get pictures of everything soonish, so anyone who cares about the wedding can see them. :) I've also printed out invitations to mail down to Kathy, so she can pass them out to the friends we didn't mail them to. (Hey, if they're paying for the reception, they can invite as many people as they want!) I've got a long list of stuff that's got to be taken care of in the next month... I hope I can pull it all together. I hope people actually come to my wedding.

Ah crap, I forgot to feed the fish. BRB.

*rushes off to give fishy flakes to her little fishkids*

Ahh, now I have happy fish. It's so fun to watch them eat! They're all so darn cute. :D My friend Mary is going to come over to see the fishies this afternoon, so she can see how to feed them when Bry and I go on our honeymoon - she's going to be our fish-sitter. She's currently fish-sitting for a couple down the street - they have a ton of fish in a dirty tank with hardly anything to play with in there. Poor bored fishies. I spoil my little fishlets, just like Mary spoils her dog Chowder. And oh lord, Chowder is getting big! He's only four months old, and he's already up to my knee! He's gonna be a big charmer when he grows up. :) Ahh, I can't wait until I can get a dog of my own....

Well, time to do a tiny bit more internet surfing before I go to work.
purpleparadox: (Gaga)
Back to work today for one of the shortest work weeks ever!

Turns out I have bronchitis. That combined with asthma = BAD THINGS. I had a nebulizer treatment yesterday, and student health sent me home with a new inhaler and some prednisone to help me breathe and get this crap out of my lungs. The prednisone is making me feel like I can take on the WHOLE WORLD OMG. No wonder why the last time Mom was on this stuff for any length of time, she thought it was a wonderful idea to get two Cocker Spaniel puppies. After she got off the pills, and was exhausted and feeling cruddy and was left with two boisterous little Cocker puppies, she wondered what the hell she was thinking. XD (Honestly, though, I wouldn't trade in Aubi and Levon for anything. They're sweet little boys.)

But yeah. Work today, then if it's cool enough (haha) I might do some cleaning when I get home. Tomorrow's the epic farmers market, since this weekend is the Potsdam Summer Festival - Bryan and I may check that out later.

I hope it rains like the weather report promises. (Then again, it has to rain - we have a flash flood warning for the next day or two. That usually means rain, right? :D )

I wonder what'll happen if I add coffee to the prednisone. I'll probably be crawling up the walls! XD Tempted to see what'll happen.
purpleparadox: (Weeeeeellll...)
the highlights OF my weekend (lord, I shouldn't type when I'm half awake and very sick)

Saturday
-went to the farmers market with bry. watched him sell a lot of wine. packed the car and went to lake luzerne. read a lot. slept well.

Sunday
-woke up with a sore throat. went to lake george. found out that the fireworks cruises were sold out. found out that our favorite restaurant has a $50 limit to sit on the deck for dinner. ended up spending two hours guarding a table in the heat, waiting for fireworks, with an increasing headache. beautiful fireworks. not so beautiful migrane. bry drove me home while i hung my head out the window, in case i had to throw up. passed out when i got home. think i had heat exhaustion.

Monday
-ran around, did a little cleaning, felt a bit sicker. went to the mall in glens falls. had a campfire, drank wine and ate marshmallows.

Tuesday
-woke up really sick. laid in bed and wheezed for a bit. went downstairs and wheezed. laid on the couch for pretty much the entire day. bry drove us home, and i couldn't get comfy because i ached so much. i think i have the flu.

today
-last night my friend michelle told me to call into work. so did my other co-worker, katie. brittany, another of my co-workers, sanitized her desk again upon learning i was sick. i am in bed right now, wishing walmart was not sold out of air conditioners, and wishing it didn't hurt to hack crap up.

EDIT: We've now got an air conditioner! We had to drive out all the way to Massena to get it, but we got one, and since it was a floor model they took $25 off the price! I am now basking in the cool breeze of the AC. It's really helping me feel better - I don't think the heat's been helping my cold/flu/whatever at all. Now, time to download some old Law and Order episodes if I can, and work on feeling better. (If I don't feel better tomorrow, I may go make an appointment at student health, and see if they can figure out what this is and how to make it go away.)

Wow. I can hardly believe it's 90something degrees out. I will probably wilt and die the instant I leave the bedroom, haha.
purpleparadox: (Artemis)
-New job is going well. I love the fact that there's always something to do. And I also like that while I'm the youngest person in the office, I'm only the youngest by a year. The other office girls range in age from 29 to 35, and Nancy (the boss) is older. All the office girls are really friendly, and I really like this job. Part of me hopes it might turn permanent, but then again, with the economy and the fact that I'm a student assistant, it's not likely to happen.

-Dad said he'd help me with school. Not sure how much he'll be able to help, but even if it's just cosigning a loan, it's enough. So, no worrying about school for now.

-My night class is killing me. It's not the work so much as the late hours, and the fact that by the time the class ends, I've spent 12 hours straight on campus with maybe an hour's lunch break. It's not fun. Also, I have a group project to do that I have no idea what my part is. I really hope my group doesn't say "oh hey, let's stay after class and get this done!" Noooo. I have to go home and sleeeeep.

-I miss working out. Once my official work schedule gets set up, I might actually have time to get over to the Body Shop, but until then, I hardly have time for my computer when I get home. I usually go home, check Facebook and the news, and then drag myself off to bed to watch Law and Order until I fall asleep. Merf.

-The new fishies are doing well. Sephie's fin is growing back, and Diana's being... well, Diana. Artemis is a happy chubby fish, and Gus loves it in his big tank in the bedroom. Yes, I spoil my fishies. Speaking of the fishlets, I should feed them...
purpleparadox: (Down)
My resolutions for 2010...

- Work out 2/3 times a week. I need to get healthy.
- Track what I'm eating, how much of it, so on and so on. I need to eat better.
- Get my depression under control.
- Write in here once a day. Writing is good therapy, and I also want to get more in the habit of writing. I've been a bit of a failure at my fiction journal. Maybe I'll set aside one day a week for stories.
-Try and make more friends, or at least be more social with the friends I do have.  I know, it's kind-of cheating on this one considering I'm living with one of my best friends, but I do have other friends that I hardly talk to.  I need to get out of my comfort zone, and get better.
- Get a job.  This one needs no explanation.

I'm going to make these my goals to work on for the new year.  I'm going to take this time to myself I've been given and try and make something constructive out of it.

zoning out

Justin sent me a new album to listen to- Supernature by Cerrone. It's one of those albums that I just want to curl up in the dark and listen to while I drift off to it. It's a disco album ("the best disco album ever", Justin says), and I have to admit, I'm enjoying it. I want to light some incense, dim the lights, and drift off, haha.

Student teaching in three days. I'm not sure whether to be excited or utterly terrified. I'll probably spend the next three days slacking off while I can- I work at the computer lab on Sunday night with my friend Kayli, so I might sit around and watch Sailor Moon for five hours, if I can swing it, and work on making scarves.

I think I might just go curl up in bed and zone out for a bit. This album almost makes me wish I'd downloaded it earlier so I could listen to it while I was all woobily on Benadryl. That would have been interesting.
purpleparadox: (Escaflowne: wonder)
Yeaaah.

Anyway, here I am, procrastinating on getting ready for my last day of work. At least until school starts again, anyway, and I work at the computer labs again, keeping an eye on all those wily computers. I'll tell you one thing that's definitely for sure- I felt so out of my element at Financial Aid. I mean, yeah, I've worked jobs that weren't CTS-related during my time in college, but most of the time I was hip deep in computers, either hauling them around or fixing them or showing people how to use them, and I loved it. (Heck, there's even a picture on here somewhere of me being attacked by a mass of wild tangled computer mice!) I enjoyed working at Financial Aid, to a point - I got to meet lots of people, I got to see lots of people I know (and got a lot of confused looks from them and comments like "Hey, aren't you supposed to be working in the computer labs? Hey, are you going back to the Learning Lab job in the fall? We miss you!") and learned more than I ever needed to know about how financial aid works. (If I hadn't learned about the budget adjustments for computers, I'd be typing this out on Snowball!) I just felt so confused almost all the time I was there. I was working with people's financial aid packages, and that made me very nervous. (And working with people's kids doesn't make you nervous, Beth?)

I'm very excited for student teaching. I just have to try and get the butterfly unit done before school starts, so Mrs. Burnett can look it over - I'm going to try to make each lesson work so that if I have to shuffle the lessons around in a different order, it'll work.

I'm going to try to make a post in here every day this semester, starting today. (Since, technically, my semester starts tomorrow!) I've been neglecting DW and all my DW friends, and I'm going to try to get out there a little more. I think writing in here will especially help if/when my seasonal depression comes back. (Apparently Callie's mom's SAD came back early, and she's a wreck. With the weather like it's been lately, it's no wonder. And that might explain why I've been a bit of a mess lately, too.)
purpleparadox: (Escaflowne: eeeehhh...)
I know, I've been mysteriously absent from Dreamwidth lately. I'm not entirely sure why, but sometimes that happens. I'll go and post in my journal every day for a month or two, and then drop off the face of the earth. I wonder what that says about me.

Anyhow, I have a tumblr account now. http://purpleparadox.tumblr.com is where to find me - if you've got tumblr too, feel free to add me.

I really should be getting ready for work, but I'd much rather sit here in front of the computer. I don't know why, I know I'm going to be sitting in front of the computer all day, but sometimes it's nice sitting in front of your own computer, y'know?

urgh

So, apparently all the student workers at Financial Aid got notices to not play games on the computers at work or we'll be fired. So you know what the other two students do? Play games. I probably wouldn't have even been included in that letter if I hadn't played Sorority Life on Facebook that once at work. Oi vey.

Anyhow, I had HORRIBLE allergies yesterday. So horrible that I took some allergy medicine when I got home and was out like a light by 6 pm. YEEP. I slept 11 hours!

Tonight I'm going to watch Amanda perform at Open Mic Night at the coffee house. Oh man, it'll be like I was back in college again, watching Seth perform his emo goth depressed music. Apparently Amanda watched Seth too, when she went to college here. It's a pity that she graduated JUST before I got here, but oh well- we're friends now, and that works for me.

I need to take new pictures of my Sailor Moon collection and post them in [community profile] sailormoon at some point. I've added a lot of new things to my collection, and I like being able to look at all the bits and pieces in one picture and say "Holy cow, I have a LOT!" My collection's nowhere near as big as it used to be, but it's getting there. I sure have added a lot of random stuff to it, that's for sure- I just got a Sailor Moon picnic mat in the mail yesterday (I'm going to use it as a poster), and I have a set of drinking glasses too. Once I get the 11 inch older style Venus, Mars, and Mercury dolls, and the Crescent Moon Wand, I think I'll be satisfied for a while. :D

I really should make my Chibiusa rag doll a new school uniform.
purpleparadox: (SM: sparkle sparkle!)
Not like the Twitter updates didn't tell you that, but yes, I am here, sneaking on at work since there's literally nothing for me to do for another hour or so. Ah well. I'll deal with it.

I made a new friend! Her name's Amanda, she just got hired at Financial Aid as a counselor, and she's married to my old boss Romeyn. She's not much older than me, which is nice- just about everyone I know is either a lot older than me (especially in the office), or a lot younger (especially in the Elementary MST program). She likes geeky things, and we were in the same clubs in college! (She was just in them earlier.) It's so nice to have a friend who appreciates my geekiness. Elizabeth, my other new friend, is alright with me being a dork, but she's not as bad as I am - she's actually pretty normal in comparison.

I should probably hop off DW before someone catches me. :O
