vacation starts soon!

Whoo! I can't wait for vacation. Not that I'll really be doing anything besides packing, but this is literally the first vacation I've taken since I started working in August 2003. The other time I had off - and, don't get me wrong, I'm so grateful that my work was so understanding - was always for recovery from my two surgeries (periacetabular osteotomy, then screw-removal) these past 2 years. So I'm extremely glad that I finally have a chance to take some time off solely for myself, and I'm terribly impatient for it to start. :) (Although I know it'll be over far too soon, too, ugh.)

Mostly I will be spending the time packing up & preparing for the move, but at least I won't have to do that on TOP of work. And then I'll have a long weekend to settle into the new place (Thursday is moving day!), which will be nice before I have to fling myself back into work (things are kinda crazy while we prepare to release the software, these days!).

Anyway, not much to report on right now. Last night Danny & I went to see The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which was hilarious. I absolutely adore Steve Carell, he is one of the best comedic actors ever (in my opinion; I'm sure many would disagree, but I find him nonstop funny). I have been especially in love with the guy (don't worry Dan, not like THAT) since Anchorman, and of course also loved him in The Daily Show, and even enjoyed his brief stint in the short-lived The Office. Anyway, the movie was great - yes, definitely full of adolescent sex humor, which normally I don't appreciate, but it was very endearing. And - bonus! - both Brian Fantanta and Champ Kind from Anchorman are in the movie (Brian much more than Champ, though)! Good times.

All right, well, I should probably get back to work for now. xoxo
