well.. .   can't really post about it anywhere, because I know so many are suffering right now (certainly not mentioning it on FB). but this thread does seem to be the perfect place.

I finished my Master of Arts in Professional Creative Writing with a concentration in Professional Dramatic Writing from the University of Denver. Started in summer 2019 and finished mid March 2021. 

finally "won" the lotto. . . Austin Public Health announced that they were getting 4000 vaccinations in tomorrow, and they would open up the sign up site at 6:30 pm. my Spouse and i both got onli

^ Add to that, the house is all paid for, so we only have taxes (bleah) to deal with, and we're still on good medical and dental plans,

so although the traveling will be down (way down) from what it used to be (every year to every few years now), it's still good.

 

HA! So my deduction is (part of) your increase! You're welcome!

Happy Belated Birthday, Bill!

 

my Bday was yesterday (as you know), and the gift from my Hubby is now my favorite stupid thing I own:

 

the KISS: Time to Rock wall clock from the Bradford Exchange.

 

it not only lights up on the hour

it not only plays the entire 1st verse (and refrain) of "Rock and Roll All Night" on the hour.

 

but Gene's tongue comes out and stays out for the whole song-- on the hour.

 

it's awesomely stupid, and I love it (and I'm sure he paid way too much for it, as it's an official band merch).

Oh I guess I had read that all wrong, was thinking you were getting a raise. Oh well, I guess if you were expecting less and you got more than you were expecting, that's a raise of sorts.

Happy belated birthdays to Bert and Bill and congrats to you Andy on your promotion!

 

Michael surprised me and bought me tickets to see Bruce Hornsby at Artpark and tickets to see Beck at the Albright Knox art museum in Buffalo this summer...isn't he awesome?

^ I love it when the huz gives me something out of the blue, no "special date" attached to it.

We usually give each other $$$$ dinners out. Safer to pick, and it's a win-win for the both of us, heh.

 

And yes, Michael is VERY AWESOME to give that to you. Something(s) to definitely look forward to this summer!

David and Liz worked on her fence side (of our three in back) to reinforce all the slats, some of which have rotted at the base,

and slowly separated from the fence frame, itself. Looks great. Now all we have to do is convince our other neighbour,

that his one section is practically falling apart all over it! But I am sure he already can see that, lol. Hopefully, him and David

can work on that side and then the backyard is pretty much reinforced again!

Liz' fence side, with the bottom rot causing all heck. We've fixed it for now, hopefully for all eternity, heh. (o;

^ Have a great vacation!

 

I won a little instant money yesterday. Not a lot, but still better than nothing.

And then there was the nightly draw, so I'll have to check on that, soon.

I had my $20 seat upgraded for FREE at the Poison with Cheap Trick and Popevil concert I went tonight. Plus, it was looking like a bad storm was going to cancel the show but ended up giving us a nice breeze to rock out!

I planned on keeping my 2015 Subaru WRX-STI for 5-6 years. That was before it had an unheard of suspension and steering issue which I battled with for the last year and a half. I loved Subaru and we purchased three new, since 2013. I planned on being a customer for life until this issue happened. I swore off the brand forever.... then, they offered me $4,000 toward a new car before negotiations. Looks like I'm going to be back in my all time favorite car in the world. She'll also be the first one that we're driving off the lot completely paid for!!!

 

It's a car built for that track, which can also be driven daily. I have a fetish for driving cars like a grandpa that are made for driving extremely fast. I'm like the old guy who buys a Corvette and drives 5mph under the speed limit.

^ Very nice. Hope you enjoy it like your past cars. Except that last one, lol.

 

I'm about to go for my monthly French dinner at a marvelous around-the-corner spot,

that needs reservations at least a month in advance (which is big for this city), with

a changing menu of 3 starters, 3 main courses, and 3 desserts. I usually go for the

Starter + Main, skip dessert (and the creme brulee, omg) and have an Absinthe Cocktail.

 

Yummy for dessert, lol. http://absinthebistro.wixsite.com/absinthe

 

(btw, I'll be having the Braised Pork Rillette, followed by the Duck Confit,

my very first main course there, on our first visit to the restaurant!)

Hey hey! Just heard on the radio, although it was originally announced that "the green stuff" would be legal by Canada Day (this July 1),

The Prime Minister just announced that Wednesday, October 17th will be The Day of Legalization. This is apparently, to

allow the Provinces to get their act together about sales, no-nos, etc.

 

Hey. A few months' delay is a-okay by me.
