I hope that all of your who celebrate Christmas are having a wonderful day with family and friends. And I hope that Santa was good to all of you!

I bought the kids a Wii. I am looking forward to seeing the SQUEE!! tomorrow when they open it.


I love my job and I am going to cry bitter, bitter tears of sadness and loss when this contract is up.

These are the prezzies I got from work yesterday:

* Being told that I still have a job for the immediately foreseeable future (when I thought that I would be unemployed just in time for Christmas - YAY!!)

* Getting a BIG FAT BONUS CHEQUE!! OMG. I love my job. I LOVE being a contractor. If I could get contracts this sweet all the time, I would never do anything else. This is going to spoil me *for life* I swear! After vacillating between between "meh" and "OH GOD KILL ME NOW HATE HATE HATE" in how I felt about my previous job, this has simply been the best job ever. I love what I do. I love that my managers hired me because they wanted my opinions and feedback. I love how I set my own hours, work as late as I want to, get to telecommute when I go away, and create my own work flow. I love pretty much everything about my job.

So. Yeah. Work wins at Best Christmas present this year. WHEE!


There will be a house filk at my place!

DATE: Sunday, December 27th
TIME: 2pm till whenever

I'll be posting directions in a filtered post directly after this one. If you're interested in coming to the filk and you are *NOT* on my filk/personal filter, please comment, or send me a message on LJ or ping me at the LJ email address. We'll get you fixed up.

I'd love to come, but its a bit of a commute.

For me as well - i.e. halfway across the US & then a jog north to Vancouver. ;)

However, one of these days I will get to meet the Great Shaddyr in person. *g*

I too would *love* to come, but it is just too ridiculously far away. *Sigh.*

Many Christmas-like thoughts your way, anyway. :-)

Wiii wish you... lots of fun!
I think they will love the Wii. I got mine back in late September when they dropped the price from $249 to $199.
Then a few weeks ago I got the game "Wii Sports Resort" which I absolutely love. As does the rest of my family and friends. It's also had the price drop recently, I bought mine when the price went from $59 to $49.
My favorites are Air Sports, Archery, Frisbee, and 100 pin bowling. There's something very satisfying about throwing a ball and hearing the sound of 100 pins falling. LOL
Have fun with the filk!

The Levy Lid Lift passed on the Nov ballot so our hours will not be cut in 2010 and we should be solid for about 5 years. Bonus check? hahahahaahaha The chief honcho sent everyone in the system a pair of Smartwool socks because we 'knocked her socks off' this year. (groan) Maybe I can get @ $15 for them on eBay?

Had my celebration with family last weekend cuz I had to work Wed and Sat so didn't have time to travel for Christmas.

Have a great Christmas with the Wii and the kids. Also have a great time at the filk on Sunday.
