Houseboats

This houseboat, I want it. For some reason, despite it's incredible affordability and adorability, I can't quite sell Lady on it. Possibly because it's itsy bitsy and well, a boat? But it's on the water! And it's so adorable! Aaaaaahhh...

This isn't entirely serious, but I have started looking at condos and townhouses in a curious manner because, with our combined monies, we might be able to afford something small now. And it would be nice to be paying off a mortgage instead of shoveling money into the black hole that is rent. Even though by now I should be well scared off from mortgages, you'd think. Tja.

I accepted the promotion today, even though they couldn't quite meet what I was asking for in a raise. Well, it might have been slightly too much, anyway. But I can try. I don't know when it'll start, but I stipulated that I have to have someone well-trained in DILs first. My contact at BofA has come to effuse at me a great deal and I really don't want to leave her with someone incompetent. Especially since she's also from Florida. We Floridians have to stick together in this cold, dry North.

Lady seems to be doing well, now that she has her own computer and can work on files herself. I think it helps her self-esteem/confidence a lot just to have a job again. And soon a paycheck! I'll stop talking about money soon, I promise. It's just nice after these many months. I was seriously wondering if we'd surpass a year.

So - back to editing photos to upload to my flickr account and to make a photo post about SD. If not tonight, tomorrow definitely. And I'll lj-cut it this time, too.

But one more thing, since [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy has finally announced it. A few weekends back, I might have mentioned something about taking a lot of photographs. This was part of a super secret project wherein awesome photographer Kyle Freaking Cassidy recruited 23 of his blog followers to take a picture of whatever they were looking at when he sent them a text message. Thus resulted The Hive. Go take a gander - it's an interesting glimpse into the lives of 23 people. Some really awesome photos resulted and, naturally, some decidedly bland (mostly mine). See if you can spot Lady!
