Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...

...and if I had a fire, I'm sure it would be delightful.

Just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas... May you all get to where you are going, to spend the day nestled in the warm bosom of those you love.

Lots of love and festive smooches to you all

Celebrate Good Times...Come On!!!!!!

I got myself a job... oh yes... that's right... my fine ass has bagged a fine ass job!!!

The job interview went so well they offered me a job that was better than the one I actually applied for... it's like the kind of awesome thing that happens to other people... only it's happening to me.... I am so excited I could squee!!!!!!!

So I now have myself a lovely flat (that I will now be able to afford!) some lovely lovely flat mates and for the first time in my life what I believe may well be considered a good job!

So good in fact, that I think I will actually have people working for me... I have never had people working for me before ... I've always been the one doing the work!

I'm going to start dressing like a grown up and I have even let them call me Rebecca... apparently you can't have a grown up respectable job with an 'x' in your name.... unless of course you are Charles Xavier... one day, my pets, one day...

It's only a matter of time before I lose the use of my legs, all my hair and develop the power to control the minds of the entire population of the world and have a wild and passionate affair with an alien princess... gotta have a dream!

Oh I also got 100% in the first test I took for my tech support exams ... truly... life is good!
