I am swinging wildly between elation and deep sorrow. F'r instance I startd this post with a big grin on my face, but I'm ending it with tears streamin down my face. Fucked up eh? :p

I really want this dog. Not as much as I want Pilau back. But that isn't an option obviously. I still can't quite bear the notion that I'll never cuddle him again. But at the same time, I imagine holding this little pup and my heart leaps.

Ha. Whaddaye know. The tears have stopped and I am smiling again. Funny old life this.

:biggrin: :thumbsup:

Happy today?

Aliantha 01-25-2012 11:25 PM's amazing how long it took to get here, but it arrived in the end, and that's the main thing.

Just in time for Australia Day actually, which is today! :)

Happy Australia Day, Ali. Is that like Independence Day in the states?

I am a scaredy-cat of tech support. I think a lot of it is that if I don't understand the question and if they are even slightly snotty I get tongue-tied and I can't even talk. I couldn't possibly WORK tech support, and I understand they hear the dumbest questions on earth, but I am the type of personality who feels like I'm screwing up their day by being an idiot.

So I had to call Verizon tech support today. She was SO helpful and SO nice and SO friendly I almost cried from relief.

Thank you Verizon for having such a wonderful staff!

I'm going to send an email or however you send them compliments.

Well...barring unforseen disaster, the little brown pup is to be mine ;)

Won't fully believe it til he's in my house *smiles* but everything went well in Guernsey, the breeder and her family were lovely and she is happy for him to come to me when he is ready.

And... cross fingers for J. Despite his conviction that he could never get another puppy after the grief of losing Pilau (he has a rescue collie as well, but it's a very different, though close, relationship), he was very struck with a couple of the little slate boys. He asked about the possibility of him having one of them and she seemed to like the idea of the pups continuing to have a relationship as brothers, which they would if we had two of them in the extended pack :P

He went home and talked to Janet about them, showed her some pics and vids and so on...and this morning emailed the breeder to say that they are very interested in taking on one of the slate boys, both of whom he got on very well with, and is now waiting to hear if that'll happen. It's a tense waiting game now! There have been quite a few enquiries made of the boys so am really hoping that having met and liked J, knowing that he has another collie and the fact that the pup would be in contact with a sibling and living in a place with lots of open countryside and heather dotted hills will swing it in J's favour.

Very pleased. For both of you.
You're both crazy of course.
Diz has just switched the printer on for the third time tonight, and knocked my glasses on the floor with his twitchy tail.

Who would have a pet, eh?

I've finished my last day at Big McHuge Hardware and Software Corp. Yay.

Start my new job tomorrow.

BigV 01-31-2012 05:15 PM


Wow. That's awesome. If you're all done with that old job, would you mind handing it down to me? What would you take in trade?

But... enough about me. What is your new job about??

Email from my ceramics teacher (who is not given to unnecessary communication) about 5 minutes ago:

Hi There, I couldn't help calling last night to tell how great they look. Outstanding!

So i look over and the message light is flashing on the phone. Message:
"I just took your tortugas from the kiln and they are.......... flawless"

:D :D :D

(almost) completely turned my day around -didn't take care of the IRS thing that was due yesterday that I forgot about :( -don't think fines are involved but ugh....
