It has taken me this long to say Thank You to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday - two weeks ago. How pathetic is that!?!

Well, any way....

Thanks! It was really quite extraordinary. I've been around so seldom that it really surprised me.

Having your birthday fall on a major holiday kinda sucks. At first I thought it would be cool to have it on Easter because I would be with family and everyone would would be in a festive mood.

I was wrong. So very wrong.

I did get a cake though and it's surprising how much better everything seems after cake.

I've been corresponding with a lovely person who translated a couple of my fics into German and was kind enough to translate reviews for me. It made me remember how much I missed this fandom and how badly I want to finish the half written stories sitting on my hard drive. It also made me realize just how much I devoted to fandom. It was basically my drug of choice for 5 years.
Just sitting here, taking ten minutes out of my day to say hello feels so very good.

Anyhoo....

The house hunt continues. We have a realtor. We are also considering going on a tour of foreclosed housed. I am not keen on the idea of profiting from another's misery. There's too much bad Ju-Ju already in my life. We'll see.


I also got a call from an ad agency looking for me to interview there. My job is killing me but who's to day that one will be any better. There is must too much to think about right now.

I have 10 minutes before I have to be at work. I might just nap.

Later Days, mi amigos.
  • *glomptackles you*

    Miss you!
  • Aside from the "bad Ju-Ju" aspect of buying a foreclosed house, there is a LOT more paperwork and effort involved. I wouldn't recommend it for a first house just because it is typically a much more complicated transaction and takes a few times as long. That said, if you find a good deal and are diligent with your homework/follow-up, it can be a good idea for you.
  • I spent my 50th birthday last month drinking an "effervescent saline laxative with a pleasant lemony flavor" for my emergency colonoscopy the next day. The label lied about the pleasant part and my colon was in excellent health.

    Good luck on the house hunt! Remember, decor can be changed. That awful wallpaper in the downstairs bathroom shouldn't put you off a great house.
  • OMG!
  • It's going to be awesome!
  • Hi, could you please unadd me? The previous owner of this journal gave this username to me, so I'd really aprreciate it if you unadded me.

    *And in case you added me because you thought I was the band Paramore, you're wrong. Their journal is paramoreband.
