holy cow the job is official 
4th-Oct-2010 09:42 pm
So effective this Wednesday I'll be officially hired. Permanent. No longer temp to perm. And while I didn't really believe that they would let me go - it wasn't official until it was official! I am so damned happy and relieved. I want to spend money now.

Too bad I don't have any :)

Did I mention that I'm actually strongly (SERIOUSLY) leaning towards the SAMSUNG FASCINATE as my smartphone purchase? Because I am. But then it's going to take me awhile to replenish the savings that I had to draw from to get the new tires and new clutch for my car. Who knows WHAT will come out by then!

In regards to TV, I'm happy to report that while I'm dreadfully behind - I have successfully addicted my mom to SGU. She started watching last night and is now on episode 12. Oh yeah baby. Hardcore addicted. I also did finally watch the season finale of Eureka. Gah - still love that show. It's gotten REALLY solid in the last 2 seasons I think. I wonder if we'll have to wait another YEAR for it to come back?

Now I have to return to my budgeting..oh! But thanks for the coding help bangaboomerang and purecreation!!! I really appreciate it!

Awesome! Congrats! I'm so glad you finally have a permanent job - I know you've been stressed about it, so I'm glad it's finally happened.

Thank you so much Brandy! You are so right - I've stressed and not stressed and then stressed some more! Very happy to have THAT done with!

Thanks Lisa! I feel like those old L'Oreal commercials - "..and you're worth it"

awesome on the job :)

i'm still on the fence about SGU. we're watching it. but i'm still waiting for the bottom to fall out hehe

Hmmmm bottom to fall out - what DO you mean by that exactly? I'm totally hooked.

it's not like the other SGs. it's a different format. not saying that's bad ... it's just different. i'm waiting for something to happen on the show or not happen on the show as the case may be, for me to just want to chuck it. so far, it's good ... it's just not great. for me.

Maybe that is what draws me to it so much. I only watched a little of the original SG, then loved the fun, silly, adventure of SGA and of course was a huge fan of the very dark and realistic Battlestar Galactica (I know not a Stargate show). But this show has that more muted tone to it that BSG did ...

Man I need to increase the font size.......! :O

Thanks Julie! As I sit here I'm trying to remember if you did find something else.......? *squints as she tries to remember*

I really liked Eureka this season, too. It wasn't as funny as last season, because I felt like there were fewer one line funnies. But I really liked the twist of the season and the dynamics it created and the different character stuff. especially Jo and Zane.

and congratulations on the job! security can be an very good thing, though it reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from BSG: When you were CAG, you protected your people; made them feel safe enough to be brave.
I always like that - feeling safe enough to be brave.

OH my heart is breaking for Jo. But I do like seeing her grow and their relationship perhaps get to be rebuilt...?? and in a different way that she is more than ready for. Before he just was always a few steps of her so this could be good for them in the long run. Since I LOVE them as a couple and HATE the little flirt he is doing with Zoe. ICK So I cannot wait to see what happens.

And I'm glad that while Dr. Grant is gone - it doesn't mean he's gone for good. I loved seeing them bring Beverly back after 2 seasons of her absence. Nice little switch up. And for Alison it was a lovely gift to have her son be able to truly communicate with her. So it was a great season. And of course if they hadn't have done the time jump, Carter might STILL be pining for Alison in his lonely office.

Plus? We get to see Kavan Smith regularly again!

I have to agree - I hadn't thought about Jo and Zane getting to rebuild their relationship with her in a different place - but that's totally possible and would be really interesting. You know me, I just like when it's tangled and painful so that kiss at the end that was such a good kiss and then he asks why didn't it feel like a first kiss - I loved that so much. The longing and the chemistry and her guard up and his curiosity - it was all very interesting.
and, yes, even though he even said he's just milking Zoe's crush to mess with Carter - still wrong. though, could be interesting to see how he's going to break her heart.

what's wrong with me ;)

I like them bringing back older people - like Beverly - but I despise Beverly so much, not quite as much as Rush but definitely more than Camille - that I'm never glad to see her.

and yes - Kavan Smith! totally fun.
