bandaged__iris found my journal on a Random search the other day, and left me the following comment:
Hey there :) Found you with random search nice to see so many "Cheerful" entries. Aint enough of that on LJ :)
Yeah, I guess I have been relatively cheerful lately.
Life is going pretty well, new job is going well (more or less), I've adjusted to Boston/Cambridge, and I've got a few projects in the pipeline to keep my hands busy.
The prosicated isn't having an easy time of the end of the semester, but we'll pull through it. She's almost done for the summer, and she's going to get some Nora-time next week which is always good for the soul. Now we just need to keep fingers crossed for a summer job to pull through for her, and we're set until the fall. (more or less.)
Had a fucking shitty commute this morning, nearly cursed out some stupid 50ish woman who was being a complete fish.
I bought 2 sketchbooks and some drawing supplies, I'm keeping one at work and one at home, so I'm going to try to get myself to start drawing again. oceanic has inspired me to try to pick it up again.
Missed Eilis's trip through Boston this weekend (sorry!), but did meet up with the Badgers for Passover. (It was like going back to my childhood. My best friend growing up was half-Jewish and had half-assed passovers and such, so it was slightly familliar but new at the same time.)
Rereading Transmetropolitan, starting in on Wolves of the Calla, just cracked open Alton Brown's I'm Just Here for the Food, and a few other readings materials are on my radar.
There's a Honey Wheat beer in secondary in my closet, the primary fermentation was very sulphuric, so hopefully it mellows out some in the secondary. *crosses fingers fervently*
My new stereo amp(s) should be arriving here today, looking forward to noodling with them.
And life continues...

Have no fear... I'll make another appearance in the foreseeable future. My husband has friends up in Jamaica Plain, and one of my absolute favorite people from Penn will be primarily residing in Boston this coming year while he completes his dissertation and works at the MFA. Add to that that you guys are up there and I haven't seen you in ages, and that Boston/Cambridge is generally a pretty awesome place to visit (not so sure about living there though), and I don't think you'll find me being a stranger.

I will do my best to soothe the savage prosicated. :) I think just the ability to take a long hot bath may do her wonders.
Glad I'm inspiring you to draw! That makes me happy. Sketching with pencil (or pen)? I spent the majority of this weekend meticulously drawing a human skeleton (and didn't even get half done). Welcome to my strange little world. :)
I've always been a pencil sketcher, so I'll stick with what I'm good at.
Although I got a couple brush-pens that I want to play with too. ^_^
