Sorry for going MIA last night...  
AIM was being evil and would not let me on noway nohow. I tried and tried. So... my apologies to all my rpg girls for my disappearance. AIM better behave tonight or I shall have to kick its scrawny little arse. Heh. Or something.

My Megs has posted the most delightful li'l response to the challenge at u2slash! *so proud* Her first fic in five years, and man did she knock my socks off. Also, melissa2u's and spicedrum's entries are pretty darn wonderful as well. Check them all out if you haven't already! You know you want to!

Not much to report on the personal front. I'm going shopping with my sisters, Sandy (twin) and Jeanne(not twin. heeee), on Saturday. Jeanne had given me a lovely casual suit for Christmas, but the pants look hideous on me. So, we're gonna go return them and try to find some pants that will go with the jacket and still look nice on me. I do love shopping with those girls! Mark needs to hide my credit cards, though...

We've decided -- this should sound familiar -- that with our tax return we will be buying me a computer. We just did this with last year's return (we filed late). But then the "new" computer suddenly turned into Mark's "new work computer." So now he's the newer computer at home claimed and the "new" computer claimed, and I'm still stuck with the shitty one. Grrrr... But I'm thinking I'll go with a computer that does what I need but has no dvd burner (since I can always go in and use the old "new" one at Mark's work), and then maybe look at the U2 ipod with the savings. Anybody who can talk to me about the U2 ipod and advise whether it's worth spending the extra money for that as opposed to any other run of the mill mp3 player will be loved all over.

Working on a terrible murder case at work. Fascinating and depressing all at the once. Ugh. But it's my last case ever. By the time I finish the report and opinion on this one, it'll be time for me to move on to my new job. Yay!

I really, really, REALLY want a U2 mood theme, preferably Larry or Bono. Anyone know where I can get one?

Happy Friday Eve, all!

You're making me very shy. *hides underneath things*

Are you going to write something? :)

Melissa's fic was fantastic. The Adamness sizzled. no one can lean casually in a doorway as he can, and he certainly had the last word. Yum.

Don't be shy -- You're an excellent writer and I'm proud of you. *snuggles*

I'm not going to write anything for this challenge, just because nothing has come to me. But when inspiration strikes, which hopefully it will do soon, I will write. I promise!

re: mood theme: Post to your u2 comms and ask around. I googled and found a few, but ya can't post without joining the comm, and I'm too lazy.

iPods suck. I got an mp3 player with the same amount of harddrive space and better features for about $100 less.

AIM sucks too. *nodnod*

No pics of Devon? :(

Thank you so much for the suggestions. I am officially a dork -- didn't even think to google. *feels dumb*

Thank you also for the advice about the ipod. That's generally the advice I'm getting. But... the U2 ipod is so preeeety and has everything they've ever done on it, even stuff not available elsewhere..... *sorely tempted*

I'm sorry about no pictures of Devon. I have lots from Xmas, but I have to be at my home computer to post them, the one that Mark uses, as that's the one we've downloaded them onto, and that's a tricky thing.... hard to get him off that computer long enough for me to get on. But I'll try tonight. I promise! *huuuuugs*

*tackles and glomps with lots of clingingness* OMG!! You had us Pop girls Worried 'bout you! Next time just post a li'l Ooc posting in the journal so we don't have to start thinking 'bout calling out the F.B.I and C.I.A the next day to start searching for you. Glad you're okay and everything on the home front is going well.
Much love to ya girl and I'll see 'bout getting outta work tonite ASAP

I am sooooo sorry, sweetie. I love you guys to pieces, though, that you worried over me. *snuggles all over* Next time I'll try to use my brain and remember the journals and that I can do an OOC post.

Oh yeah and one more thing... I've been scoping out the iPods and MP3 players, plus I've been asking 'round this place with people who own such devices. I've been getting a lot of ppl say that MP3's are a better buy. The iPod is just the name brand but not really any better. Though I'd go for the U2 iPod if I could only 'cause it has EVERY SINGLE SONG EVER CREATED BY OUR BOYS! EVEN THE STUFF THAT ISN'T ON IMPORT OR SINGLE!! regular wise. mp3 is what i'm thinking of getting myself babe

And I'm supposed to resist the U2 ipod how, now that you've told me what it has on it????? I'm seriously thinking I'm just gonna spring for the U2 ipod. It's what I want, so I might as well do it. I've worked hard to get into a good financial position, I should get to enjoy it sometimes, right? ;)
