Posting on behalf of Connie Neil:
Her hubby's surgery to repair herniated disks in his neck was this morning; the procedure went splendidly, he was lucid and bitching half an hour afterwards, and if all continues going well he will be home tomorrow afternoon. They send their thanks for all good wishes and energetic vibing on the part of the Buffistas.
Though I've been fairly dim the past few weeks, I'll be going dark from tomorrow onward, as I am scheduled for every single hour between ten in the morning until ten in the evening on Thursday, and then on Friday I am leaving for a forensics competition in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which is close enough to my hometown that I'll be able to see my parents. Which is probably good. Unless the hotel has some nice way for me to connect to the internet, I will be quite dark. Sigh.
Wish me luck.
My mom's birthday today. Kind thoughts appreciated.
My placement agency is submitting me for a part-time games-related editing job, and I really really want it. Could the Hive Mind vibe employment goodness please?
... aaaaaand I just found out a former boss (the one I *liked* at the last job) just got asked by another former manager for my contact info, because they want to see if they can get me on their new team. Meep! So continued job vibe-iness would be spiffy.
My brother lost his house in last Friday's tornados here in the midwest. He's fine, even though he was in the middle of it. All the critters came out fine too.
Good Buffista vibes for him and SIL wading through the insurance maze would be much appreciated.
Right, so not only am I dim for the weekend, but my email's gone kaput until --- well, probably forever. Until this can be resolved, and I can get a new email address, you can reach me at sarah_throop (at) berea.edu. I'd rather not spread this one around though, as it's mainly academic.
The sale on the NC house just closed!
WAHHOOOOOO! No more payments! No more repairs! No more abortive sales!
I'm going dark for the weekend. One of my girls father died on Tuesday, and two of us are going home to see her for the memorial.
Not apocalyptic, but: I have two really pretty formal dresses, and two formal dances. Help me decide which to wear to what.
