Holy crow, new Blogger interface.
Initial response: NooooOOOooOOooo! Where the fuck is my blaagghh?!
Now: It's rather pretty, this.
But yes, after my initial knee-jerk reaction of [Hissss, resistance to change], I think the new look is quite nice and streamlined. So cheers to ye, industrious Blogger team!
H'okai, so. In March I tantalized the world with a mention of some good news, then never explained what it was. You have all, I am sure, been waiting on tenterhooks for me to unveil my big secret. As I've recently been sent this... braggadocio... graphicky badge thing... I suppose it's safe to share:
What that actually means is that I've been accepted into the University of Washington's Masters of Library & Information Science program. I'm gon' be a librarian when I grow up!
I'm pretty thrilled. If you happened to be at the tattoo convention and saw a giddy Asian kid dancing across the hotel, this is why.
And yes, yes, okay, I've seen this
and its sequel and I TOTALLY AM THAT STRIPEY-SHIRTED BEAR, I accept and embrace this. It will be difficult, of course, to turn my back on the glamorous lifestyle to which I've become accustomed
but I am willing if not entirely prepared to face the challenges that lie ahead. For the children.
This also means that I'll be moving to Seattle this summer! (Trust me, if my pride allowed it, I'd have tacked on a bunch more exclamation marks to the end of that sentence.) I don't own any furniture, so I'll probably be falling back on my tried and true relocation method of drag-a-couple-over-stuffed-suitcases-onto-a-plane-and-mail-the-rest. (Though as "the rest" consists mostly of books and plastic kitchenware, it might actually be cheaper to buy what I need there.)
Joe was accepted into the Science(!) program in Iowa City, so we'll be doing the long-distance dance again, but that's old hat for us, and at least this time we'll be in the same country. Plus, I have unlimited texting = unlimited opportunities to annoyyyy him.
