It looks like I've been accepted to my Masters program in Organizational Leadership! (YEA!) Just got a phone call today from the Admissions office at Gonzaga. Now it's time to figure out how much debt I'll have to get into to pay for it! :lol: (It'll be well worth the cost, though :) ).

Congratulations!! Well done Malia - I hope all your efforts will be worth it.


I've decided to turn this into 'The good news thread' if you don't mind Malia.


Please post here something positive that has happened to you, one of your family or friends, your country, or the world in general.

We need cheering up in these dark times.
:P

I don't mind at all! That's an excellent idea, Saturn :)
Let's all spread some good karma around!

Ummm, I wrote two more poems?

Is that good news? Or is that considered old news now? :lol:

I have another happy thing to report. Four years ago today, we had an addition to the family.

Yes, I brought home a little brown bundle of fur--a kitten named Chewie. Over the years, he has terrorized dogs, ordered his humans around (like a proper King), pouted, purred, prowled and played paw ball.

For those of you who have pets--especially cats--you know all too well that it is best not delude yourself into thinking you own your cat, for we all know, he owns you! (That's certainly the case at our house :) )

Happy Anniversary, Chewie (aka: Chewmakamai, Chew Chews, and Funny Bunny)

Congrats on the addition, too, Malia.

Ok, no. I do have news. I snagged a grad student-worker job in the English Dept. at St. Thomas yesterday (my school)--atta' way to get half a toenail in the door, eh? :wink: :lol:

Perfect way to start networking yourself up the ladder of professional scholarship! It's always *who* you know, isn't it? And it's always easier to get to know people from the inside.

OK, I'm not making any sense. . .a latte and 5 cups of tea and 6 straight hours editing a document have reduced my brain to mush. :roll:

Excellent advice--and I shall take it! (Especially the bit about the wine ;) ) Did I ever mention that I live in the heart of Washington State wine country? Washington State is on the same latitude as the Bordeaux region of France and our climate is perfect for wine making. We have dozens upon dozens of wineries and vinyards out this way--both beautiful and delicious. (Keats would have loved it ;) )

Saturn, you use the word dagnabbit too (I clearly spell it differently, but that's beside the point)?! Yay! :D

Other than that little discovery, I have no news at all :?

ooooh. We could start a wine thread for all of us romantic, vinous souls...

wine (aside from my beloved TEA) is nectar of the gods.

I'm loving Chateau St. Michelle's Reisling right now--from Washington, I might add. :wink:

Dagnabbit...that's good; I'm rather fond of "dadgummit." :wink:

:lol:
