Better get used to this...  
Me posting on a regular basis, that is. Until I have more to do, I suspect I'll be posting a lot. LOL

So I finished my development stuff - we'll see if my boss likes what I've done. I'm not too worried - the process is new to all of us since it's from Big Huge Corporation and none of us have had to do it before. The expectations, dare I say it, are low. I also ended up talking to two of my three managers on the phone today, one about the next process I'm going to learn (implementing a particular data stream that will work for multiple products), and the other about home office stuff and our on-site visit in two weeks. We also discussed wardrobe, so I finally tried on the clothes that longtimegone gave me while we were in Georgia. Everything fits! The shirts are a bit snug for the reasons we suspected they might be, but the trousers and blazer are great. Thank you so much!! Now I can just buy a few more shells to go under the jackets I have and I won't need to buy any more businessy-type clothes until go down another size or two. * ♥s longtimegone*

I'm hoping to have a place to live sometime next week. Really, really hoping. I also need to buy a set of luggage, because I don't own any of my own. I've also realized in my recent trips that EVERYONE ON THE PLANET has black luggage. Therefore, I'm buying a different color. I'd like red or purple ideally, but I'll have to see what I can find.

It's funny how if you say, "HELLO, MOVING AWAY SOON" suddenly everyone wants to hang out with you. My social schedule is suddenly really ridiculous. I'm seeing two people tomorrow, having a goodbye party in a couple of weeks, and have an invite to another party - and that's not even everyone who's requested seeing me! Plus, throw in the fact that I'll be gone on business for one week in there... time's running out quickly.

Well, the stupid snow has finally melted and it's actually gorgeous and sunny outside, so I think I'll escape the apartment for a while. I gacked a few quizzes from jlh, so have a look:

You Are Rouge Red

Of all the reds, you are the most energetic and vibrant.
You never need to recharge, and in fact, you often recharge others.
Gutsy and brave, you've never let your fears stop you from doing anything.
You figure that life is all about experiences, and you'll always take that leap of faith.

You Are Grape

You are bold and a true individual. You are very different and very okay with that.
People know you as a straight shooter. You're very honest, even when the truth hurts.
You are also very grounded and practical. No one is going to sneak anything by you.
People enjoy your fresh approach to life. And it's this honesty that makes you a very innovative person.
I feel: satisfiedsatisfied

My luggage is bright teal blue. Besides the deliciousness of this being my sig-nah-tour col-ah, I have no need to affix anything to the handle in order to tell it apart. Always handy at the baggage carousel.

Exactly my reasoning! I'm going to be traveling at least once (if not multiple times) every 3 months, and since it'll be 3-4 days at a stretch, chances are unlikely that I can manage to get away with a carryon. I'm tired of having to guess which one is mine amongst all the black luggage!

Yay! I'm glad the clothes fit! Those pants were just languishing in my closet, about 3 inches too long, and I'm too lazy to have them hemmed, so I'm very glad they have gone to a good home.

Suits are win because you just buy some snazzy shirts to wear beneath them and instant wardrobe!

The pants are slightly long for me, but not so much that it'll be an issue, you know? I'm sure that when I have shoes on, they'll be fine.

Definitely! Thank you again!! ♥
