it's the light you're after because light moves faster...

It is a bleak and blustery winterís day. Big storm Ďa-brewiní. The wind is blowing fast and hard and the torrential rains should be along any second now.

But thatís OK Ė itís Thursday. Iím done with school, I have two short projects left for work and Iím 75 percent done with my Christmas shopping.

Oh, and I came into work today and found out I was getting a $50 a week raise.

Just because theyíve got money in the budget and theyíve been wanting to bring my salary up for a while because they think Iím doing a great job and this will have no effect on my annual merit raise in May.

Damn.

GB says itís because I made a good impression at the Holiday Office Potluck.

Hee.

Oh, and thereís one other thing I donít want to mention because Iím afraid of jinxing it (yes, Iím superstitious like that), but I just found out that said thing is one step closer to happeningÖ..

Double hee. (i.e.: hee hee)

All this and Iíve got a Survivor finale tonight and a post-Survivor trip to the Club for celebratory drinks and good music.

And itís not even my birthday yet! Shoot, at this rate Iíd be willing to forgo any birthday or Christmas presents and just be very very grateful for all the good things that have happened in the last two days.

But, um, you know I wouldnít want to disappoint anyone whoís already gone to the trouble of getting me something, so um, yeah.

Anyway, I should get back to work before they think twice about that raise.
