I'm at the point where I haven't updated LJ so long, it's impossible to catch up.

Good things are happening at work - Boss from Hell is leaving, Boss of the Golden Age of the Department is taking over. Bright new software program on the horizon.

Otana got her green card today. ^____^ We celebrated with Indian food. There was a time when you couldn't have gotten me to try Indian food with a herd of wild horses; well, Otana made it at home and showed me it didn't have to be spicy, and when it's NOT spicy I enjoy it! It still has been a little spicy in restaurants, but the mint yogurt drink cuts that easily.

Speaking of food, Devil's food cake and carrot cake are among her recent accomplishments. Despite this, I seem to have lost weight... 6_6

Reorganization of the house progressing slowly but steadily. Big improvement getting rid of the oversized papasan chair. It was nothing but a gathering place for stuff, really.

Avon is going well, and has actually been a help financially. Now if only I can keep myself from ordering so many shinies that it negates the earnings...

So far, yes, I am still alive, which means I have (again - so far) survived my birthday. And I managed without descending 12 flights of stairs during today's fire drill (let's hear it for high-tailing it to the ground floor before the damn thing starts).

I'm just... tired. I guess I thought all the insane rushing-around and panicking was over with once we did the marriage, but this week proved that wrong. I would like to think that all the insanity is over with, because the only thing that's left after the AOS is the change from permanent resident to citizen, but I thought all the insanity was done for a while ago. I was wrong then, so I am too cautious to think that I am right this time.

This evening mood drop is getting really annoying.

On the plus side, I've gotten Hippo Birdies email from people all across the firm today, phone calls from both my mates, a fresh Nutella & strawberry crepe, an art supply baggie, a butterfly necklace, green tea & ginger hand soap, several hilarious cards, a big box from my mom and Sly Cooper 3. Despite the fantastic hassle of the last two days, it does make one feel surprisingly appreciated by the universe at large. I never expect anything for my birthday, that way I am always pleasently surprised; but this year's been particularly nice due to, if nothing else, comparison with the past month.

Well, petting the calico kitten in Bay Cities quarantine last night helped too.

Just spoke to Otana! Immigration at her point of entry was no problem - "So when are you getting married?" Stamp, stamp - it was getting her luggage that took 2 hours. Oi!

Anywho, her connecting flight to LAX is scheduled to leave on time!

A massive explosion will rock LAX.

It will not be terrorists. It will not be an earthquake. It will be composed of incoherent squealing and hugs. And perhaps indecent kisses.

All bystanders are advised to bring earplugs and insulin.
