|11:42 pm - Greece, as always, is the word|
This entry must be short and sweet, for I am off to Greece with my mother in the morning! OMGWTFBBQ!1! This is the trip I've been wanting since I was knee-high to a hydra (what? I was tall when I was a kid, too) and I'm so grateful to be going on it. I probably won't have a chance to get on the internet while I'm there, so no one do or say anything too exciting, okay? Just remain in a gentle stasis til I return, bearing tales and trinkets and maybe a prophecy from Delphi.
My birthday was wonderfully celebrated at the Pickle Barrel with my mom, Claire, Ana, and Emily, and then again at home with my family. I received thoughtful and charming gifts, including a beautiful girly music/jewelry box with a dancing fairy inside. It is the long-awaited replacement for the frilly, lacy, beaded pink music box I had when I was five; iinside it had a little plastic ballerina wearing a tiny tutu. Then our dear young calico Zebby started getting her big-girl teeth, and began chewing on everything. First she ate the tutu. Then she came back for the ballerina. Ate her right down to the plastic toe-shoes.
As for school, I wrote my last exams and essays some time ago, and all that remains for my undergraduate career is the graduation ceremony when I get home in June. I was accepted to graduate school, and my doubts about my desire to go there were mostly quelled by the receipt of an Ontario Graduate Scholarship for a one-year Master's Degree. It doesn't pay for the whole tuition, but most of it, and I didn't want to look such a gift-horse in the mouth, no matter how filled with sharp, pointy, academically intimidating teeth that mouth might be.
It would seem this update is ridiculously full of good things in my life. I should watch out for the scourge of hubris and its attendant divine retribution, especially where I'm going. If I come home with no eyes and a galimony suit from my mother, you'll all know what's gone wrong.
Coolness, hon! Have an absolutely wonderful time. Protect those eyes, at all cost. ;)
Sounds like you got a great haul for your birthday. Many (belated) happies.
Congrats on the acceptance to grad school. You'll do brilliantly, I have no doubt.
Hubris? Nah. You're going through a good patch and long may it last. You've cheered up my day a treat with all the excellent news, so thank you!
*hugs back hard* Thank you, love!

Have fun and be careful on your trip. Congratulations on your scholarship. After this summer session, I will have my master's degree and am looking forward to having some free time. Before you get started on your master's, please try to do some more of your Angel/Wesley h/c fiction. I am not above begging; I have missed it so.
Wow, how tremendously flattering! Thank you! Congrats on your degree, too. Supernatural fandom has eaten my brain so I haven't thought about Angel and Wes for a while, but hopefully I'll get inspired again soon.
