However, before I do, I have some special announcements:
1. What with this whole LJ user interest search resurgence, I've been told that I'm appearing at or near the top of a whole bunch of people's lists, and so I've discovered that I've got some new friends. Hello, atl, bigrob, carina_s, discome, jimf, and stereogum.
2. My formal job offering has still not taken place - NYU is holding up the works, big-time. My company just needs proof that I actually have a college degree. Of course my parents are in California this week and so are unable to get me my college diploma, which would come in handy. BUT, my supervisor called me up this morning to ask me if I would mind having my name added to the phone directory. Now, if that's not saying it's a done deal, I don't know what is. Of course, I don't know what my starting salary will be, either, and that's sort of a huge thing for me to know right now...
3. I think I've decided to give quitting smoking another shot, effective immediately. I don't know whether it's tooth-related or not, but for the last few days I've started gagging and feeling nauseous whenever I've even *thought* about smoking. I finished my pack last night, and now I'm gonna attempt to cruise through the rest of the day.
4. "nauseous" might be the single-hardest word for me to spell.
Y'know, I'm glad I did all that, because now I really don't care about what happened this morning. It sounds kinda silly, anyway - I'm not sure that I could accurately describe how hellish this morning felt if I just listed the kind of crap that I had to deal with, although some of it involved:
WHEW. OK. End of rant. I'm eating animal crackers now and I'm gonna go see Death to Smoochy with the woman after work tonight - these are good things.
