sticking around

January 24, 2008

For the past few weeks I’ve really been considering not paying my hosting bill for the next year, and letting the site expire. I’d just been feeling defeated and like I didn’t have much to say anymore that hadn’t already been said by me, or said better by others. But for whatever reason, I paid the bill this morning. So you’ll have me and m y rambllings for another year at least. Aren’t you lucky!

Things are going pretty well right now. It really looks like we’re going to cycle in in April. This is pretty exciting. I mean, I still need to find a boatload of drugs (thanks to those already in the donation cycle) but I need more to actually make this work without having to eat Ramen during the cycle.

As for work – well, I really really like my job. Yes, I work about 10 more hours a week than I used too and I no longer have the entire weekend off, but, still, my emotional well being at my place of employ is about 100% better than it was 2 months ago and this is a good thing.

Have I told ya’ll what I do? I know I sent an email to friends but I don’t think I really mentioned much here. Without being too specific (as in, serarchable) I now sell vehicles made by an automaker who  has always shown itself to be a bigtime supporter of GLBT issues, as well as making really safe, cool (I think, anyway) vehicles. I love to talk to people, and I really like the product that I’m selling, and well, like I said, I’m good at it, and I’m having a good time doing it.

So far the best part of the job is that I found out that the “company” is sending me to the continental state that most Northeast residents consider to be the vacation destination during the winter months for a few days in a couple of weeks. When it will still be frigid here. This is a good thing. Even better? The whole reason for the trip? To drive the new cars. That’s it. Learn about and drive the new cars. Including the one “sports car” that my company makes. Apparently, I’m going to learn to drive stick in the next 5 weeks. I’m looking forward to the challenge.

Thursday’s are my day off. This is kind of cool as I get stuff done on Thursdays, and S gets stuff done on Saturdays and then Sunday is an easy day for both of us to just spend time together. I’m trying to figure out a excursion to W. Mass to visit friends on a upcoming Thursday, and I think it will work out well, eventually. Today, I’m going to take a drive to a certain fabric shop that a fellow blogger (I can’t link from this site, but ~d, you know I’m talking about you. We need to drink and craft soon) has mentioned a few times and see if I can’t find some fabric for curtains. Also, two of my favorite people are having big birthdays this year and I’m trying to work on a pretty awesome project for them.

So, that’s it. Right now, I need to do my weekly bathroom clean and then start my day. I’m thinking I’d really love a NY bagel, but I’ll take what I can get:) Happy Thursday everyone.


  1. woo hooo! SO effing glad for a post from you AND that you paid your hosting bill. Good. Now I can stop nagging you on that.

    now to nag you about the other thing. Did you call to see if you can use anything other than the F drug to cycle?!?!?!?!?!!?!


    You sound so damn good right now. I wish you could test that vehicle to my town.

  2. Glad you’ll be around for at least another year 🙂

    And the trip sounds like a ton of fun. I am curious what company, but understand if you don’t want to say.
