    I don't have a pic of the RHPS. My cousin might, but I don't think I let her. the "costume" referred to Halloween this year.

    Dinner: Chili's
    chicken fajitas, (chix breast, lettuce, guac, green bell and onion)
    onion and jalapeno deep fried mess (not worth it)

    Dessert: Frozen choco pudding
    1 frozen banana, mashed together with cocoa powder and pecans. That hits the spot.

    Congratulations. That must be a load off your mind and stress level.

    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.
