Countdown: 8 Days

And it was 10 Days, and I wanted to post, but I was very busy yesterday, by which I actually mean Friday the 11th. That was my last day of work, and we all went out to Panda Express for lunch and Craig got my lunch which was nice. I didn’t actually want to make […]

Lactose and GMAT study (in which our heroine perseveres through unnecessary difficulties)

Don’t expect this post to be thrilling, dear reader. In fact, if you have an expectations of an interesting read, please dispose of them now, before continuing any further down this landmarkless road of an entry. *Thank you.* Now… I am mildly lactose intolerant. However, last night at the grocery store I felt the need […]

Countdown: 1 Week, 6 Days

…and only three more days of work. This weekend is supposed to be the official “going away” party, and we’re seeing my friend Niki for brunch on Saturday, and maybe the Long Beach Lobster Festival on Sunday. Plus, there’s football to consider. Thursday is getting together time with my mother, next week is our last […]

Good times

Even though we’re eager to get out of here, I’m having a good time in these last weeks in the States.� Sean and I have been seeing so many more movies than we used to (“No more movies.”� “Yes more movies.� So many more movies!”� cf party cat)–and they’ve treated us well.� District 9, Gamer, […]

New Feature & Countdown: 2 Weeks, 1 Day

So I realize I’ve been tweaking this install of WordPress a lot, and I think as soon as I do a WordPress upgrade, it’ll nix all the changes I’ve made, so I’ve started keeping track of the backend PHP changes I’ve been making. The point of the changes, of course, is to implement the new […]

Countdown: 2 Weeks, 3 Days

…and only 4 more actual days of work! It’s almost finished! We successfully got our Visas, good for 60 days at a time, 4 times a year, so effectively we can stay there for 8 months even if we really mess up our longer term Visas; we’ll just have to leave and come back in […]

Records

My relationship with this blogging enterprise is a little iffy.� Not that its goals need be defined from the get-go, but I wouldn’t mind if they were.� Or, perhaps, if *my* goals were.� (I *have already* been giving it time!!) I like the idea that this will serve as a record of what Sean and […]

Validation & Countdown: 2 Weeks, 6 Days

Ok so it’s a little geeky, but I finally got this page to validate, both the html and css. I also transitioned the javascript from mootools and prototype to jquery, which I am more familiar with. I’ve also properly formatted the code in all the pages I’ve edited. I must say I’m surprised. I really […]

Countdown: 3 Weeks, 1 Day

Maria’s sleeping next to me right now. It’s hot, but the fan’s kind of nice. At least it’s nice for her. I’m not entirely sure it’s doing anything for me. It’s actually almost exactly only three weeks away, but I’m writing this just before. I’m giddy I think, and it’s keeping me from sleeping. We […]

Countdown: 3 Weeks, 2 Days

So it’s getting close. So close it’s driving me crazy. There aren’t really that many things left to do, but for me, it’s like the last week doesn’t count because we’re going to head up north for a little vacation, and I work during the week until then and I’m sort of counting those days […]

Countdown: 4 weeks, 1 day

So I’m changing the countdown. It had been until September 11th, 2009, which by the way I’ve been horribly off on; apparently it would have been “Countdown: 2 weeks, 5 days,” only 19 days to go, “to go” being until I leave my job at VSM; I thought it more appropriate to countdown to the […]
