Birth, death, illness, new job, vacation...if it's happening to you and you want us to know about it, post it here. These threads are intended for announcements only. Want to offer sympathy or congratulations, or talk about anything? Take it to Natter. Any natter here will be deleted.
I'm going to be mostly-dark (but actually only gray) in the next ten days or so, due to some more Jewish holidays. I will at least lurk some, and will check my e-mail regularly.
Before I'm gone, here are some dates to remember in the next week, according to the Buffista Calendar:
Tomorrow (9/20) is Sue's birthday (that's Susan O's Phoenix name, right?), Saturday (9/21) is Sophia's birthday, and Monday (9/23) is not-so-little-anymore Emmett's birthday. What a lucky bunch of days. Hopefully, I'll be back by 9/28 to wish Elena and DH a happy anniversary in a more current date, but anyway, early wishes to all of them!
This evening at 7:45 ET I have my co-op interview. All good vibes are welcome.
Thanks for all the support. The co-op board accepted me and signed the acceptance letter right there tonight!!! YAY!
Now the lawyers need to arrange the closing.
I 'm at Brenda Mercer's house in Milwaukee, in the middle of my "world" tour. We (The Pee Wee Fist) have played half a dozen shows so far and every one has been fun (even in Philly where there were four paying customers, but one was a Brazilian guy who wanted to take my photo...). Tomorrow we have a big show in Madison at the University. I'm expecting an audience of 12, but someone told us earlier this evening that 1000 students may be staring at me & the silver suit. We'll see... Saturday is Chicago where I expect to see a Buffista or two!
Oh - I'm registered here! Looks great! Can an Admin please add me to the secret Admin club?
I got one of the editorial assistant [not to be confused with assistant editor, even when your eyes are blurry and sleepy and you're trying to scan the letterhead] intern slots at the American Poetry Review!
This isn't exceptionally important, but I didn't want it to get lost in Natter. For some reason AIM ate my buddy list, so I pretty much lost everything. For those of you who are AIM inclined, IM me at CybervixenHDN, and I'll add you back to my buddy list. I now return you to your regularly scheduled lives.
I just got a call from our NC Realtor. The appraisal came through. The mortgage approval came through. The inspection turned up nothing major.
Our closing is September 27th. As of October, we will (sort-of) own precisely one house.
This may be a little lightweight for Beep Me, but my first fencing tournament is tomorrow, and I don't know if I'll be checking in again before then. I could use some good fencing vibes, not to mention plenty of anti-falling-on-my-ass vibes, if you can spare any of those.
