The Planets Are Aligning

--I just got another happy email about our trip this summer -- we will be able to stay at the palace/castle where I went to school! I was really hoping to be able to show my family the place that I stayed, they are going to love it!

--JD got a solo part in jazz band. Just last week he was complaining how there were no solo parts for his position on sax. YAY, JD!
--And finally, It looks like there might be a full-time day opening at the library soon. I may or may not be interested in it -- and it may be out of my hands anyway. Current employees get get first choice. The woman who took the night position (the job that I turned down) has the potential of transfering into that job before I'd even have a chance to apply -- which would leave the night position open again; but we've already established that I don't want that job. SO, it looks like if I had taken that job, I couldv'e been in a day position by the end of the year. And you know what, I really don't regret my decision. So now I KNOW I made the right decision!

Saw this and thought of you Peep Show!!

Lyvvie, HA! That is hilarious! We didn't get around to doing our usual peepshow this year - but it may not be too late. We're not Easter people anyway. I think of Peeps as more of a spring thing.

Way to call it, Sylvana! Isn't it deliciously rewarding to take a risk and have things turn out for the better?

I just got the confirmation email on our stopover in Iceland --

We get to stay 5 days! I'm so excited! It's like a vacation appetizer.

Yay! Here's a game for you to play, count how many times they take a sudden intake of breath when speaking. It's a strange Icelandic thing they do, speak along and then, *gasp* continue to speak. I noticed it a lot when they came here for cheap Christmas shopping holidays.

Sylvana said...

Lyvvie, hmmm... I did notice that they were a talkative people, didn't notice the gasping however. Now that's all I'll be thinking about!!

I think they do it like a reversed sigh, like some people say, er or um. I noticed they do it when they're thinking or pondering. then again - it could've been just me. I know; I'll ask Maja!
