I am in the best mood ever. Today I got a job and, more importantly, a new laptop. If you've never met my laptop, you probably can't fathom how much this means for me. Basically, it's been a complete piece of crap for the last two years. A few months ago, one of my housemates, P, came to borrow a lighter. (A smoker who never has cigs or a lighter. Wonderful.) As she stepped through the door, she looked around in surprise and asked me what "that noise" was. I told her that it was my computer. P: "Oh my god, I've never heard a noise like that in my life. It's so loud, it sounds like an alien ship or something." And it really really did. DID! Hah! Now I can totally have more than one application open on my computer at the same time! I'm giddy.
Oh right, and the job? My new boss walked up to me as I was doing a crossword puzzle and eating egg salad in my pj's. He seriously told me that he thought this would be good both for me and for the company. I gazed up at him, removed the fork from my mouth, and said, "Um, ok. What am I gonna get paid?" Because really, what else matters?
Funny story: I tried some new fancy-schmancy no-fat, low-carb frozen yogurt after dinner. I got a flavor called "Oreo Cookies 'n' Cream." As I started eating it, I thought to myself, "Hmm, this tastes familiar. What does this taste like? It's kinda of like, oh god, what is it... [5 minutes of intense concentration ensue.] Oh right. Oreos. And cookies and cream ice cream. Wow, that probably would have been quicker if I just remembered what the flavor's called." And I seriously thought that.
I Am Still Alive. Basically.
