Promotions and weird stuff

I found out yesterday that I got my promotion, so (hopefully) starting next week, I will be a librarian II. yay!! It mwans slightly better pay, a better title, and just generally makes me look cool, yeah?

I also started using twitter the other day. Basically, I wanted to follow Neil Gaiman and Trent Reznor. I also ended up subscribing to Wil Wheaton's twitter, too...he really is a nerd.

Also, will pople lend me money, please? I really need it for this: Come on people, for $10,000 I get to hang out with Josh and Jeordie AND get a car!

Also, had a dream that Mike Patton and I fell in love and I left Mika for him. That's what I get for fawning over my picture of us together with Emily (still one of the coolest nights of my life)!

So, I got a comment from Emily today, which made me realize, once again, that I forget to write here. I'm pretty sure I say something to this effect every 5 entries or so. *sigh*

So yeah, not much has been happening, other than work and trying to find fun things to do in Baton Rouge. Trust me, it's none too easy. However, I do have awesome co-workers (for the most part...) who have become good friend, so it makes it easier to live here. I do miss Texas though, especially at this time of the year. It doesn't get wintery enough here for my taste. And Oriental Garden's Pad Kee Mow sounds so yummy right now.

In other news, I think I'm going to make it my goal to get through at least half of my books that are scattered throughout my house this year. People have given me some, others are advanced readers copies, and they are all unread!! This just should not be.

Also, isn't my new user pic pretty? Yay for mark Ryden!

Also...boobies. That is all.

We had a mariachi band play "Another Brick in the Wall" at our table. It was perhaps the coolest thing ever. I think the singer was just waiting for a young stoner-looking dude with long hair to come in in order to sing it. Seriously, he looked so happy.

In other news, colds suck. IN other other news, i'll be in Denton next Friday (26th) so....yeah, tell me if you want to meet up. I'm totally having Oriental Garden for lunch (if it's still there....will someone please tell me if it is?!)

I did it...

I was crazy, stood in line today, and bought an iPhone. Dumb? A little. Worth it? Oh yes. It is one sweet phone. I've ben making ringtones for it in Garageband all afternoon and browsing random websites. So..if you have Facebook, my new number is there. If you don't have it, comment and I shall send!

Tomorrow is Potterstock at the library (four Harry Potter tribute bands...) and I think I'll be completely, utterly drained afterwards, so wish me luck!

Fear the evil Miso

Seriously...I'm bored, and I miss posting on here. Everything has been going well, but I've just been so blah after work that I don't get on much. I do read though, I promise!

More later....

So.....catching up

Yeah, it's been ages since I've posted anything hasn't it?  Sorry, I've just been busy and stuff...but I have been reading all of your journals!  I do almost evey day.

Let's see...what's happened since the last time?  Well, I got married to Mika in a small ceremony January 5th in Paris, Texas (after going back to Australia for a was heaven!).  It was just perfect :)  Soon afterwards, I had t go back to work and school.  I was swamped in both, taking 4 graduate courses, practicum, and my computer lab job.  I had hardlly any time to just relax!

It all paid off though, because I have now graduated with my master's in library science, and will be starting my job as a youth librarian in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on!

Moving to the new state has been a lot of hassle, but it's been worth it.  Mika and I got a nice condo to rent, and we already have a new family member!  She's a 4 month old calico kitten named Miso, and she's the best cat ever.

Well, I hope to talk on here a little more.  Sorry about the big gap!

Here's some pics from the wedding and from Miso:
