    Congratulations, gracie! That's wonderful news for the new year!

    This is a little silly, but I did a football pool on a lark with USA today and ended up ranked in the top 500 out of over 12,000. I figure that at least a few thousand stopped playing halfway through, but that still means I ranked in the top 500 out of 9 or 10 thousand. Since I know nothing about football, not even their colors or mascots, I thought that was pretty cool. I was excited.

    See, you should have done more gambling in LV. You have a lucky something-or-another.

    I'm now gainfully employed I got a part time position at the Asian Exports (decor, jewelry) store at the local mall. It's about 18-20 hours in the evening once I get trained(which means I get to piddle around FoRT during the day like I'm used to) and I start Thursday to watch and learn the ropes.
