Since I last posted, I:

-Left my job at Archiver's to begin working second shift full time at the science center, putting a dent in my social life but giving me health insurance and allowing me to sleep in every day.

-Spent the week before Christmas weak and dizzy, blowing my nose and coughing.

-Spent the week after Christmas playing Dr. Mario, shopping at Walmart, and consuming mass quantities of frozen pizza, boneless buffalo wings, and frozen hot chocolate with evelynnash.

-Had to work on New Year's Eve, but made it home in time to ring in the new year by blowing bubbles, drinking Cocomotion, and slow dancing to Sufjan Stevens on my patio with Dan.

-Made absolutely no resolutions whatsoever.

-Started watching movies with my friend Kim in preparation for her annual Oscar Party.

-Lamented the fact that my birthday falls on the same day as the ridiculous national championship football game, but celebrated the fact that Dan cares even less about "the big game" than I do and will therefore be taking me to dinner instead of watching it.

2nd shift rules. it makes me feel guilty because i get nothing done in the morning but light housework and the occasional flute playing, but at the same time i absolutely love having the option of sleeping in.

Oh? I didn't realize you were a fellow second shifter. Yeah, I don't plan to ever get anything done in the mornings. And I don't feel the least bit guilty about it, either.

i think that growing up catholic, i can't escape guilt. so even if i don't feel guilty for anything, i'll still feel guilty for that. might as well hate myself for something!

Ouch. Luckily, I grew up in a we're-Protestant-but-we'd-rather-sleep-in-on-Sunday-than-go-to-church family, meaning that I can do whatever I want without ever feeling the least bit of remorse. I'm truly sorry for your lot.

The upside of having your birthday on the same day as the championship game is that no one else will be anywhere that you want to be. No waiting for tables! No crowds! Life will be good.

I know! As long as I don't want to go to a sports bar. So.... I think I won't be having any problems.

Many Birthday wishes from me to you.

oh, heck. It's been so long. Did you end up getting my Christmas card? 'cause, like, I don't trust the postal system.

I so did. And before getting sick, it was part of my Secret Master Plan to respond not through Live Journal but with a real-mail card of my own. And, yeah. I totally dropped the ball. One of these days, baby. One of these days...

Congrats on the full-time. I didn't know you went FT. Very cool. Plus, the benifits are awesome. Love them!
