I'm so so so excited!  I just accepted a position at a non-profit here in Minneapolis in accounting. 

For the past few years I've been doing administration for my husbands business and we just opened a second record store that I co-own here in Minneapolis but new businesses take awhile to start turning a real profit (although ours has done well so far, we're on month four.)

The best part is that I'll be making more than I made at my last banking job and on salary even though I'll only be working 32 hrs as opposed to a full 40.  I had my second interview at 1 pm and they just called me back at 4 pm and said my references from the community bank I used to work at had nothing but outstanding things to say and she thinks I would be great there.  And it's less than 10 minutes from my house.  Oh my gosh, so excited!

Yay, congrats! I'm getting a new, better paid job starting in July, too. #feelsgood

Thank you!  So far it's been great and my wee little office has a window so I'm super happy.  Congrats to you too!

Worked a double today, first half of the day covering for someone who was half way to Disney land before figuring out he needed his shift covered. Second half was hosting an amazing 100 person wedding, the Bride and Groom both children of house, so their DJ kicked ASSSSSSSS.  They even had a story in their speeches of the two of them hitting up Velde when she was 30 weeks pregnant to see a certain DJ hah, my kinda people.

Home now and thoroughly enjoying the last episode of westworld.  NOMaNOMaNOMaNOM

I had an idea that has me writing again. A good idea. I'd say an original idea but it's not really original, so much as it's not been done quite like THIS before.

Like how stories had messed with story structure prior to Memento, but none had ever done it like THAT, you know?

Anyways I'm just getting lost in it. I'm still world/concept/narrative structure building. It's all very bare bones, but I get started and after I get up I've realized hours have passed. Writing has never been like that for me before. It was always a chore but now...well I don't want to get ahead of myself. Maybe it'll wear off. But for now it's making me happy.

Word came down that my long-delayed promotion from troubleshooter to senior troubleshooter is on its way.
"I have seen him show most of the attributes one expects of a noble: courtesy, kindness, and honor.  I would also say he is one of the most bloodthirsty bastards I have ever met."

Sweet! I'm going to a gothic masquerade ball that's going to be held in a former monastery, but the date is set for October. It's a pretty long wait.  :(

I wish we could somehow shrink the world so you can hop over for a night, Bebop  :-*

Oh my god!  So cooooool.  Where is this?

Also - do you get to go into the library and chapel?  If so PLEASE TELL ME you have some masked counterpart to make out with there or you will find one!

Yes and presumably yes. 8)

The former monastery is a 30 minute drive away from my home city, Bern. We have so many old castles and monasteries around here, it's awesome! And there's a once-a-year goth party in many of them...

That's so rad.  Tonight I am boarding a yacht for Yacht Goth.  Meaning there will be lots of Cure and Joy Division on a yacht.  I will also be trapped with my husband for this three hour tour and my real life name is Ginger.  Pray for me.

I've actually written enough that I like that I feel like I have to back it up. That's a new milestone for me.

A few local bands. It was in a basement so I smacked my head on an air duct about 3 times while moshing.
