*tiny squeaks of joy*  
Bestest thing the first: JAKE 2.0 on Sci-Fi tonight!! I have been elated about this all week, because it is THE MOST JOYFUL SHOW EVER and I have been kicking myself for not obsessively taping that one poor half a year that it was on the air.

Bestest thing the second: ... I GOT MY RAISE!!! And there are details and compromises and I didn't get scheduled time for real estate classes and my overtime privileges have been curtailed but NONE OF THAT MATTERS because they TOTALLY gave me more than I ever thought they were going to!! And I get a suhweet bonus if I get my real estate license (on my own time, since no scheduling help) by April 1.

I am so buying a breakfast bagel for lunch.

And then TONIGHT, I will take sister out to celebrate, probably at The Only Sonic Restaurant Within The State Of Oregon That Just Opened Only Two Miles From Our Apartment Because Gira Made A Deal With The Devil. Then home to watch Jake 2.0 and work on bestest thing #3: FABULOUS socks I'm knitting from expensivo Socks That Rock yarn that I got for Christmas! I'm designing the pattern as I go, which involves a lot of ripping back and re-knitting the heel turn until I find the one I like best. (Dutch heels? Not so much.) After doing sock knitting on two circular needles (which I admittedly thought was The Best Invention Evarr at the time), I can't tell you how blissful it is to be working on bamboo dpns (also for Christmas from The Second Set Of Parents). No tangling and searching for ends and... it's just delish. The colorway is awesome, and there will be pictures when I'm done and a pattern if anyone's interested!

Congrats on the raise! WOOT!

Also, I would kill to have a Sonic within driving distance!

Every time Gira saw a Sonic commercial she would start wailing and beating on the furniture in great distress, I swear. The apparently addictive properties of this fast-food chain frighten me.

Yo! Did you ever get my message asking for more detailed job info that you wanted, so that I could pass it on to that dude I know??

And yay! We will speak at some point soon, and it will rock.

PS... Does a raise mean you're able to come to PI?!?!?!?!?!?!!
