Greetings and salutations!*

Hello Gentle Readers!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday season - Happy New Year! How many of you have messed up your checks already? :)

I'm sorry for the long lapse in posting; now that I'm unemployed, I really can't be arsed to do much of anything (not that I was really arsed before, but I like to pretend that it's a good excuse!) And yes, you read that correctly: I've been discharged from the Ham Distribution Center! Actually, not many people buy hams after the holidays, so there really was no point in staying on. The Boss Lady told me to call around Easter, though, so that is promising. And really, despite the fact that the last two weeks or so drove me insane, it was a good lil job. If I have the time and inclination, I'll definitely try to go back next season. I made some friends there, which really helped cut out some of the boredom that comes with a lonely existence :)

I've been able to combat some of this lonely existence, though, with Jen's help - she's back in the USA (well, North America, as she's currently on the beaches of Cancun!) and she's been keeping me busy. Last week we drove to C-bus to catch up with our roommates from college. It was great to see the girls; we went to Applebee's and saw Kelly's apartment which looks pretty similar to Keller Place - the only thing that was really different was that we weren't counting the ceiling (one!), and, you know, there were Kel's two GIANT greyhounds: Vinny and Guido. It was a wonderful evening and I'm sorry that I missed last year's reunion!

Note to Jen: Casey wants me to tell you that Dorr is going to need a new 5th grade teacher next year, and she DEMANDS that you apply for it. I'm telling you here since I can't just call you up since you are in freaking MEXICO!!

Also: a slight request for those of you who are graphically/computer literate: I'm downloading a free trial of Photoshop and I'm totally in the dark as to what it can do. Do you know of any tutorials that I can use, or do you have any tips for me? Help a newbie!!

Alright, I'm sickly (blasted cold!) and tired, so Happy New Year! Thanks for reading :)

Gah! I can hear the line in my head, it's from a movie... but I just can't grab it. Damnit, it's gonna come to me while I'm sitting in my math class next, I know it!!!
