I guess the holiday season has officially kicked off with the first few parties. Friday night we took 3 friends up to DC for the annual party Q's minister and his partner throw, which was quite fun. Saturday Q had to work, and I spent the afternoon doing the bulk of the rest of the Christmas lights (a lot of lights for our little house). Some friends came over and we watched "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which Q and I hadn't seen when it was in theaters and we enjoyed a lot. Sunday I went to the college's staff Christmas party, but it was hardly worth the effort (I did meet the President and one of the VP's, though, so that was nice).
Put in my application today. We shall see what we shall see. It would be uber nice to have that much money, but as it is what I have will do us just fine for the near term (although my first paycheck can't get here fast enough - we're even delaying Christmas with our friends here until after the new year because everyone's broke).
Otherwise life is good. Yay good. Yay life. Yay me. :)
