  • Congrats!!

    Ah.... jeans.... I'm jealous! We do have a pretty lenient policy where I work, but serious, dressing up to sit in a cubicle all day with nobody seeing me just strikes me as DUMB.

    Nice... what a change it will be!

        • Goat soup for lunch. It had potatos in it, but I fished them out. Goat, goat stock, carrot, onion, cilantro. The stock had cardamom in it and thoat was soooooo tender.
          Salary's negotiated. Slightly less than I was making at the City ($5k/year less), but much better than their original offer, especially with promises of raises with increases in stature (getting my PEs, work becomes viable, etc.) The title is Engineering Project Manager. They said that I would be the person in the office getting things off the ground, coordinating between faces of the company, doing engineering work, and doing various manageresque/ grunt work things to keep things flowing more smoothly than they have been. There was also a tantalizing offer of stepping in as CEO of Engineering once I got my PEs in both TX and NM. I'm walking on air.
          While I was out thrifting/ antiquing with Guy Who's Allergic to Everything I found the perfect anniversary gift for Husband:a Chicago Bears pennant from 1940. For $25. He loves it.
          Alright, off to find clothing and such.

                • Thanks for all the congratulations folks! It's been a very good day. Joe, you're right, as per usual. That's one reason I've been kinda antsy for the past month and a half: no real CE outlet.
                  Malling went well, too. Well, kinda. The mall officially carries no work friendly jeans in my size for under $150. I did, however, find out that a size 5 in juniors Levis works equally well, if not better, for my body. A bit irked that my size went up from a 2 (not very much, it IS just a number and a conversion between size types, but it did tug on my pride), but, hey, I can wear Levis again (YESSS!!!) and found some decent work jeans for under $30 a pop (my preferred upper limit). Bought all 2 pairs that they had in my size and the work friendly style. Went to an outlet store and shopped the clearance rack. Got 2 sweaters, a lace t-shirt with satin underpinning, and another t-shirt for under $12. The burnout t shirt cost me all of $0.50.

                  • OH! I forgot. I finally broached the idea of PB to Guy Who's Allergic to Everything. He thinks it sounds interesting. Gave him the website and told him I'd let him borrow the book when he comes over Saturday. I may have a tentative convert.

                              • The ladies of MDA are always talking about the texts and the Skypes and the PMs. I get the feeling there's this whole chick Mafia thing going on behind the scenes at MDA that none of the men are aware of. More of the mystery that makes women strange and interesting.
