When I finally had steady internet that wasn't my phone, I saw that I had a lot of new readership! I was super excited, I thought, "This is finally it, I'm a celebrity now. I've made it to the big leagues." I saw that all my new traffic was from my blog-friend Miss Sassy Pants from A Few French Fries Short of a Happy Meal. In fact, she created her own blog award and gave it to me - ME! See:
Isn't it gorgeous? :) I'm pretty honored. She's super funny and has lots of good drunken/silly/possibly-unhealthy escapades. Not only that, but she has like 300 followers, so that's a nice plug for my bloggy! Miss Sassy Pants is highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. Herehereherehere!
So that was nice. Today was also my first day at my new job! It's pretty much exactly what I was doing in Arkansas - I'm an engineer - but with the added benefit of being around friends and family rather than hillbilly neighbor kids and loneliness. I know this job will be a good fit because when I got to my new desk and opened my drawer I saw the most amazing thing:
Anyone who's read my blog for any length of time knows of my fascination with weird thrift store mugs, and this certainly fits the bill. It is hand-painted and just overall interesting - the exact sort of thing I would buy at a thrift store and show off to you. It is even signed on the bottom.
I don't think that's English. I never thought I'd say it, but I'm really happy about the big black cock on my desk...
