Hi! Just taking a minute to pop in and tell you all that MY SISTER GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!

The one she wanted. The one she has been talking about for weeks. The one that means no four hour a day commute and is not based on any sort of election - (like her current job). The latter means that she could conceivably have this exact same job until she dies.

Which sounds morbid, but working in politics, as I have discovered since we started living together, actually means every time a politician is campaigning for their job, all their employees' jobs are at risk too.

She got the official word today - the job is hers - YYYYYAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!!

Also, The BFF finishes up her last big assignment for law school this week - omg, it feels like she has been in law school FOREVER - so I am unbelievably happy and proud for her!!!!!!!!!!!! Like you have no idea.

The people I love best are having exceptionally good weeks.

/knocks on wood, cuz yes, I'm that superstitious./

In my life, house-guests have arrived. Family is here every second. My Aunt told my yesterday that I look like Hilary Clinton - wtf is that? I'm 32 years old, I would hope to god I don't look like Hilary. I like Hilary fine, but she's got several years on me, you know.

Anyway, I know I have been absent from LJ a bit. Just know that I am reading your posts - but replying and commenting is a no go right now. Which sucks, because it is very hard not to talk to you all. I miss my LJ friends! And I have things to say about important things like Chad Michael Murray!

I also have things to do, lots of crazy Christmas projects - so my LJ fun will be considerably less, until the holidays are done and over. I mean, I'll be around, but just, you know, less.

That said, I am sure I'll be back here on Friday night, to scream about NARNIA!!!!!!!! Wanted to go on Thursday to the midnight showing, but the sister wants to go and since she is celebrating this week, I figure we can wait until she gets home from work on Friday. So, I'll squee at you then.

PS: Am totally listening to Steve Carlson's Christmas cd right now!

This is such EXCELLENT news! Send my congrats to your sister and the BFF. (I feel like I know them through you! LOL.)

And don't feel bad about the commenting and such. It's the freaking holiday season and RL (and family!) have that way of taking up our time.

You don't look like Hilary Clinton. No way. Nobody deserves that sort of . . . uh . . . comparison. *g*

Buuut . . . you have to reply to my last post. I need your address! (Or you can PM or email me. You got to!)

Thank you. I am happy when my peeps are happy, you know.

I don't feel bad about not having LJ time in that I don't think people will understand - just in that I would rather be LJing than doing the things I have to do. Like sit around with my family and stare at the baby - she's cute and all, The Canadian Niece, but for how many hours a day are we expected to watch her play in the middle of the room? (I know, they won't be here forever - I feel like a bad aunt. /sigh/) And I put off my Christmas list of shit for too long, am never gonna get it all done. Have to cut some things out of it, I think.

And I don't even get how she thinks I look like Hilary Clinton anyway - I am 5 foot tall, 100 pounds, with a full face and I have started growing my hair out. Plus, that whole like 30 year age difference. It was the most baffling random thing anyone has ever said to me.

I will PM you in a second, woman.

\o/ that is awesome for your sister!! I'm glad she got the job she wanted. Life is much happier if you're doing something you enjoy. And the BFF finishing up the last of law school. I had a friend in law school and he was there forever it seemed so I know what you mean.

Hope all your family stuff goes well. Don't feel bad about not commenting and stuff. Real life comes first (unfortunetly lol :)

ps: I had Steve's christmas cd playing in the car yesterday too!

Thank you! I know, The BFF has been doing this law school for so long - she is going to be so thrilled to never have to answer the question again, "When will you be done with law school?" "How much longer do you have to go to law school?" etc. I am tired just from watching her go to law school - I can't imagine how tired she must be.

I know, RL comes first. /pout/ Want to be on LJ. Want to talk about Christian Kane. Boo.

And then, my sister was all, blablahblah and I was all, "I can't hear you, I am listening to Steve Carlson serenade me with Christmas music right now!" Of course you were listening to it too - it's December, and it's Steve Carlson! And we are both awesome like that! ;)

Oh, so glad your sister got the job!!! :)

Hilary Clinton
O_o Lol!

Am totally listening to Steve Carlson's Christmas cd right now!
I didn't even know he had one.

Thank you. Her stress level is already noticeably better, which makes me all happy-face. My sister has way too much stress in her life.

I don't even get the Hilary Clinton thing at all. I look nothing like her. It was so bizarre. I console myself with the fact that my aunt is buckets of crazy.

Steve's Christmas album is called "An Auld School Christmas" and has about six/seven tracks on it, but they are all great. I highly rec it. Big surprise, he could make an album of bird calls and I would highly rec it. But as a Christmas album, aside from a Carlson album, I highly rec it. :)
