Wheee. Life.  
So, we have the date for the last book. Like most people, I'm somewhat excited but also sad. There have been plenty of other series of books that I've loved that have ended, and it's always a bit melancholy. The hard part at this point is that I have NO idea where to reserve a book. -.-

So apparently there's this big important football game happening on Sunday, and I'm supposed to care because one of the teams is from where I live. Uh, NO. I cannot possibly express how happy I will be once the Super Bowl is OVER, and I won't have to listen to my brother and father yelling and screaming at the TV multiple times per week. I truly don't care if the Bears win or lose. On Sunday I'm going to get my nails done and then going shopping - my jeans are too big again. That'll only take so long, so I think I may take the laptop and go to Panera or Starbucks for a while, too. Anything to stay away from the torture as long as possible.

I had my chat with the other hiring manager on Tuesday - it was just an 'informational interview,' but she definitely encouraged me to apply once the positions are posted. I wish they'd post them already!!

We got a revised 'Code of Business Conduct and Ethics' from the Big Company this week that we had to agree to. One of the updates was this:

Confidentiality/Blogs – We specifically addressed the issue of blogs, a new development since the original Code. We allow personal employee blogs to mention Big Company, but prohibit employees from disclosing any confidential information or material nonpublic information about Big Company or our customers on their blogs.

Ah, color me amused.

Philosophy does it again. This stuff smells soooo good, and the color is just perfect. Heee!

And finally... pretty please to be giving me Valentines?

Did I mention that the top two layers of our wedding cake are going to be red velvet??

AHHHHH YOU TRUE SOUTHERN GIRL!!! *raises eyebrow* ...you're just trying to entice me further, aren't you?

I need to get off my arse and email J, K and A to see if any of them might be able to pick me up and drop me off at the airport. I need to do everything possible to make this cheap if I'm going to swing it...

Which reminds me that I totally owe you email...

Let me do that now. :D

Email good!!

I'm not even rooting for the Bears. Ah, the blasphemy.

I'm with you on the book reservation. There's a Barnes & Noble near me, so maybe I should just do it there so I can pick up the book as soon as it's out and read it.

We shall burn somewhere together, no doubt.

Well, considering I hope to not be living here by July, it's a real crapshoot. And maybe I'll go to visit friends somewhere else for the release, too. I have no idea right now.

I have no idea about the book thing either. I can either pre-order it in Warragul and pay about $45 for the stupid thing, or I can try my luck at driving to the nearest K-Mart on the day and hoping there'll still be one left by the time I arrive. Decisions, decisions!
Vicki: Drake b&whermorrine on February 3rd, 2007 12:38 am (UTC)
My problem is that I don't know where I'll be. Will I still be living here? Will I be going to visit friends for the release? Not a clue. I'm really tired of my up-in-the-air life, let me tell you.

In that case, it's probably easiest just to try your luck at picking up a copy on the day. I totally understand how it'd be driving you mad, though!

The other team playing in the game is the team that I should be supporting, based on geography. Blue and white all over the damn place down here. I am so uninterested.

I don't think they've ever won, so it would be cool if they did, but I'm not worried one way or the other. What happens, happens.

Either way, I have other stuff I'm worried about.

I just want it to be over. Bleh.

I'm going to reserve my copy of HPDH at the same Barnes & Noble where I met you (Starbucks) for coffee last fall :D
Vicki: Cedric grinhermorrine on February 4th, 2007 05:32 am (UTC)
Cool! I need to see if I'm moving or traveling first...

ugh i'm so with you on the whole superbowl thing. my mom and i are going to the movies while my dad and my brother grunt and be "men". is it monday yet?
Vicki: Mrs Hafer/Drake OTPhermorrine on February 4th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)
No, sadly, it is not. At least yours only grunt - it's the screaming and swearing I can't take.
