HE DID IT!!!!!!!! Mark passed the bar exam!!!!! *so proud* Now he can finally, finally, FINALLY look for a job and take some of the pressure off of me. Unfortunately, at the moment there does not appear to be much available in the Lansing area, and what is available is nearly all for much more experienced attorneys than even I am, much less someone starting out. The jobs for new attorneys all seem to be in Detroit. But that's two hours drive from here. So finding work may not be as easy as we'd hoped.

In the meantime, I have a job interview next week at the Michigan Judicial Institute, which is part of the Michigan Supreme Court. It would involve researching the statutes and caselaw that pertains to the court and the judiciary and their workings, drafting and editing reference materials for the court regarding those things, and being the Institute's representative at various MJI programs and trainings for outside groups. It would be a 40 hour per week position, relatively low stress, within the court system and the same building even as my current position, and with the state so my benefits would not change. And the pay is comparable to what I am making now. *crosses fingers and says prayers* If any of you are the praying sort, please keep me in your thoughts, particularly next Tuesday morning, as I really, really, REALLY need this job.

In more fun news, my copy of U2 & I came in the mail last night. YUMMY!!!!!! I've only just given it a cursory glance, really, but wow! *is impressed* And yesterday I ordered a used copy of the the Alarm concert video "Spirit of 86" that I so loved when I was in college. For the whopping sum of $4.75. Heeee!!!!

Will not be online tonight, probably, as it is Mark's night with me. I'll miss you all! (I am officially an internet/livejournal/rpg junkie!)

hawkeyesmartini I have your baby book and supplies, or I will very shortly anyway as they are at my sister's house, just arrived in her most recent order. If you and ty are still planning to visit at thanksgiving (I hope I hope I hope I hope), then I'll just wait and give them to you then. If not, let me know and I'll get them ready to send off to you.

Thanks again to everyone who made my birthday so special, particularly themegs, melissa2u, and ladylardence, with a special thanks to lardencelover for beta'ing Melissa's story for me so late at night. Love you all! *huuuuuuugs*

Alright, on with the day.

*Oh, and the icon is chosen especially for you Megs. Looky what I found!!!!!! It's the deer in the headlights look! Heeee!

You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on November 8th, 2005 02:35 pm (UTC)
Congrats to the hubby!

*crosses fingers for you*

You're so welcome. I wasn't expecting to write more than just a wee little fluff, so that fic was a surprise. Thank you for being so understanding about the plot to keep you up *smooch*

Thanks, hon.

Understanding? Heck, I was soooo amused! And anyway Megs is always great fun to talk with. Heee.

That's fantastic! *squeezes* Congrats to Mark, and good luck to you.

You're going to love that book. ♥

I'll miss you tonight.

Love the icon. Poor Larry. He. Will. Dance.
nosferatuvoice: Bono Larry Minenosferatuvoice on November 8th, 2005 07:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks, hon.

Yes, I think I am. Yummy, yummy pictures. Found the one with Larry and his teacup (your icon) and drooled over it endlessly last night while we rp'd. Heeeeee So gorgeous!

I'll miss you, too, love. I may find a little time later to get online... I find I get very antsy when I can't get online, so I may have to talk him into letting me on for a bit. If not, I'll definitely see ya tomorrow.

Yes. Larry. Will. Dance. Heeeeeeee

One of my favorites is 1981 or 1982 Edge and Adam in the helicopter, with Edge looking very serious. ♥ They're adorable.

I'll be on. :)
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on November 8th, 2005 08:02 pm (UTC)
Heeee.... the one where Adam is smiling like he's amused and Edge has the headset on? Too cute! I squeeked at the Naked Adam picture, the one of him on his side, even though it's only from the chest up... just the thought... And then I squeeked louder at the Naked Adam picture from AB -- I'd only ever seen the x'd out version of it. Oh man!!!!! CPR please.
Megsthemegs on November 8th, 2005 08:05 pm (UTC)
Yes, Adam looks very amused. Shirtless Adam is quite sexy but he looks like he needs a nap and a few good meals. As for naked AB Adam...I saw that picture in person 6 feet tall. *falls over* After I got over myself, it's a gorgeous photograph. Mike thought it was stunning.

That is the cutest icon ever.

And also, I betaed for MELISSA. It was no trouble, trust me. :)
nosferatuvoice: larry blink animatednosferatuvoice on November 9th, 2005 01:59 pm (UTC)
Did I misspeak? I thought I mentioned that you betaed for Melissa? I did appreciate it. And the story. Twas a lovely and unexpected birthday present.

I adore the icon, too. Megs and I had just been discussing that scene, which I had never seen, and then I found the icon, so it had to be done. Heeee....
lardencelover on November 10th, 2005 12:49 am (UTC)
Nonono. I just meant... Melissa! It was Melissa and therefore no trouble at all. I was complimenting her... in a very poor manner apparently. LOL.

hawkeyesmartini on November 8th, 2005 05:14 pm (UTC)
Yay! We knew he'd pass. *'yay's for M.* And you will get the job you're after. There's absolutely no reason you shouldn't. Go in thinking that you will. I'm sure they like confidant attorneys.

And actually...Ty and I can't come. Sorry. Really, really sorry, but Dustin doesn't want pregnant me to go off in a Greyhound to Chicago and wait there for the bus to Michigan. Yes, I mentioned that Ty was gonna be there too, but he says it's gonna be colder, and what if there's a problem, and the baby might kick first then and he'll miss it, etc etc...I'm sorry girl. I SO wanted to see you and Devon. (Maybe we can get some PICTURES?!?!) Also, we'd have to leave the a night when Ty had to be at the college for one of his classes, and he wouldn't want to miss it...that's not as big a problem, but as much as I do want to see you and Devon (and M...don't want to make him feel left out. He and Ty would probably get along), I don't want to fight with D., and he might be right about a problem, and he's most likely right about the kicking (it's supposed to happen around that time), and...well, I like him being protective of the baby, ya know? It's a nice change from hearing him whine about how he wanted a boy (because I think it's a girl - how about that! You get my boy and I get your girl! We knew it'd happen!).

Anyway...I hope we can chat soon, 'cause I miss you. Maybe this weekend? I was going to leave you a message Saturday but Ty was over and we were busy with some things...I was going to congratulate you on your second 20th birthday, hee. ^^

nosferatuvoice: Bono Mad Grinnosferatuvoice on November 8th, 2005 07:59 pm (UTC)
Yes, we knew he'd do it. But it's always a worry until the official word comes out. Thank you God, he passed!!!!

I'm sorry you can't come up to visit, but I completely understand. I expected you might not want to travel while pregnant. I will miss you, but next spring we'll get together.

Yes, I bet you get my girl and I have your boy! Heeeee..... we sussed that one out, didn't we? :)

I've missed you too. I always check for you when I get online, but we never seem to be on at the same time anymore. All day saturday I will be at my sister's house, but hopefully I'll be online Sunday. Don't know if I'll be around friday night, as it's our avinursery.
i'm shifting into soup mode.: [bono/larry] the real tongueoffside on November 8th, 2005 06:59 pm (UTC)
Yay! Congrats to Mark :D And crossing fingers for you, as well. I hope something works out for you both.

And I still need to order that book, omg. Have fun looking at it :D

Oh, it is sooooo drool-worthy! Well worth the money. ;)
