+ First off, my advisor is going to check and see if I can actually take the Advanced Japanese Reading class that I'm not qualified for (and then sneak me the translations so I can keep up). It's fabulous having someone actually think about me and look out for my academics finally!
+ Oh, and the job continues to be fabulous. I find that I get stranger and stranger as the years go on, because I was actually smiling at the prospect of reorganizing her filing cabinet. But hey, some quirks are profitable quirks. Especially since I'm fully willing to own up to my own freakishness!
+ Neil's dad and grandfather are coming for a visit this weekend! It should actually be a ton of fun. I love them both as if they were my own family. And Neil swears that his grandpa wants to come and do work, so we may get handy-man services thrown into the visit to boot! This is the grandfather that, even before we moved into the house, had already sent us two boxes filled with tools.
+ I got awards! 3 pretty awards from Bodice Ripper Awards for the darker_giles banner! Thank you to every one involved in the process - mrsdrake, the judges, and everybody who voted for me for Reader's Choice!
+ summer_of_giles finally started today! And I've spammed the comm with entries since midnight. I hope they all don't start to hate their mod by the end of the day. If you haven't friended the comm, there are giles only icons here, giles/others pairing icons here, and giles manipulations here and giles wallpapers here! Phew!
