now that our busy season is upon us at work i think the bulk of my blogtime will be after hours. i'm sure there will still be the occasional midday update, but i've got to spend my hours shoveling group pnr's (ah! sorry- travelspeak) into the furnace all day or else massabossman go cross.
i barely knew what to do with myself tonight when i got home from work. school's done. exams are over. i didn't even have any transcribing waiting for me (my part time job). it was exciting and slightly unnerving all at the same time.
so i did my chores- laundry, trash-taking-outing, homemade chili and cornbread on the menu... and i watered the plants:
i know- you're probably thinking 'laadee fucking dah- it's a picture of a properly hydrated poinsettia a few days before xmas..'
but it's not just a picture of any ol' store bought poinsettia soon to be tossed in the xmas trash once the gifts are unwrapped. i rescued this one 4 years ago from the travelgulag (aka grand circle)- i think we were both pretty emaciated at the time, so we shared a special bond of general deprivation.
this poinsettia has moved every year with us for the past 4 years and a couple of times had some little red flowers happening- but always in the middle of summer. this is the first year that it's doing it's poinsettia thing at the appropriate poinsettia time. i'm so thrilled and so proud of my little poinsettia that could (and finally did!)
topping other news this fine and frosty evening...
i still can't believe i survived 5 classes on top of a full time job and a part time job.
i have my grad school interview tomorrow. i remain convinced that even after getting my BA in australia and taking 16 classes at bridgewater state college to make it equal to a US BA, that during tomorrow's interview i'm going to be told that since i never took the developmental psychology of mongolian salt miners i'm going to have to go back to school for another year before they let me in. i suppose that remains to be seen- undoubtedly there will be a post after the meeting, so stay tuned.
i guess that's about all i've got for now. j.mo will be home soon and i'll be face down in my bowl of chili, so i should go put some eatin' clothes on.
