I'm not sure how he got it where I found it, but I did find it. YAY.

And it served the secondary purpose of forcing me to clean the living room, particularly under the Entertainment Center, where I fished out four dog bones, four tennis balls, about ten or fifteen miscellaneous cat toys (including fluff balls, plastic milk jug rings, and wine corks), and an undetermined amount of dust bunnies largely formed of cat hair.

So double YAY.

I didn't mention earlier this week my bosses granted me a special bonus for Exceptional Service, which gave me enough extra money to pay for my car battery that's been sitting on the CostCo card for a few weeks (oops), some flowers & candy (I'm sentimental and predictable), and for our extravagant Valentine's dinner last night, where we ordered a lot of sushi and ate until we were stuffed; then later we had little slices of the Trader Joe's chocolate torte (which I had with Zinfandel port I also got at Trader Joe's on the recommendation of the wine guy, who said it "went with chocolate" -- he's right, it's PERFECT with chocolate, but Barb didn't like the taste). It was a good Valentine's Day.

And it's been a pretty good week, overall. Had a few minor kerfluffles which were rapidly repaired, but our work is still pretty low, so there's no chance of overtime, and we have a little time on our hands to work things through that we didn't have time for before, so... kerfluffles. But on the whole, really, a pretty good week.

I haven't been doing a lot of writing, and I'd like to remedy that. I still haven't heard from Harper, which does things to the back of my mind, since I know most everyone else who submitted at the same time as me has already received their rejection notice (as we all expected). So since I haven't received a rejection, the back of my mind going "It could be!" is fighting against the front of my mind which is going, "Never in a million years."

I am very unhappy with this new format. WAH, again.

I wish LiveJournal would actually LISTEN to its paying customers once in a while.
Feb. 16th, 2013 01:36 am (UTC)
Now why would they wanna do that?

Oh, I don't know. I have this thing I call "common sense" I like to use, but I know it's a rare mutant skill....
Feb. 16th, 2013 02:56 am (UTC)
It really is! :D

I'm glad the ring turned up unharmed.

Best wishes for Harper!

Thanks! :)

Well, now I know to keep smacking down LJ's offers of the new format whenever they pop up. I was already doing it on principle, but your reaction firms my resolve.

I kept it on "switch to old version" until they stopped offering it.

Yay for finding your ring and for a cool Valentine's Day.
Feb. 16th, 2013 02:27 am (UTC)
Thanks! Happy weekend!

glad you found it.

sounds like a nice Valentine's day

and hey you haven't heard back so it could be good news

also yay to the bonus

Very yay, even if I have spent it already. :)

I don't know if you can ever find San Tan Brewery beer there, but if you ever run across "Sex Panther" chocolate stout, I REALLY recommend it. I know you like a good beer, and this is pretty awesome (if really strong! I only had two this evening!).

cool, I'll be on the look out for it.
