Soreness, etc.

So I spent the weekend out in the woods, at Mick and Auralee's wedding. That was fun, and they seem to be happy together. Besides, we camped out and got drunk and ate entirely too many toasted marshmellows. What's not to like?

And me and Heidi got a little closer. It was kinda funny, on the way there she leans over and tells me that she just realized that we are doing a lot of 'couple' things, and that it's pretty cool, which I agree with. It's going to be so incredibly hard to let her go (yes, I will do it, it'll just be hard), and I am lobbying harder and harder (but quietly and subtlely) for her to come back in a year. Damn....

Aw, YEAH!!!

Turns out that 'meeting' I just had to leave for was my 6-month review. And I go looking over the review papers, and everything there says that I am just the shit when it comes to my job...(*giggle*)...and the sad part is that this is including all the time I basically fuck off at work! So I straight-faced hand him the papers back, and he asks if I have any questions or comments. I carefully say no, because it's still too funny to me. Or maybe I'm stil missing sleep from this weekend; as discordian knows, I'm finding all KINDS of things funny today. Anyway, much to my happiness, i discover that this review came with a pay raise, not great, like 5-and-change percent, but any more money is good right? Hoo-Ah!
