Hmmm....I don't remember....

sending one of those hokey good luck chain e-mails on....

Oh, wait........that God person I claim to believe in? Oh, so He's the one responsible - well why didn't you say so? Duh......

Today was my performance review. And the verdict is on overall job performance - I exceed my job standards. This = 3% raise, on top of the 100% increase I'll see when I go from 20 hrs to 40 hrs. Ca-ching $$$...

Then, as I just got home, I opened the mail and there is a letter from UCD telling me I was awarded a $250 scholarship for the spring semester. There's some interesting history to that one. 1.) when I applied for admissions this fall, the lady who markets the program sent me a scholarship application and a deadline of October 15th. 2.) the scholarship administrator says, "uh, no, all 2006/2007 awards had a deadline of April ? 2006." Between that and the fact that most are need-based and I was not a "need based" scenario, I didn't turn it in. 3.) but then I got an e-mail from the dean and the scholarship lady saying that I should turn the scholarship application in b/c sometimes when a student with an award doesn't return, money becomes available. Yada yada....I figure what the hay and turn it in, not really convinced anything will come of it. Bada bing - they turned water into wine folks. Cheap wine, in the grand scheme of things, but nevertheless wine from water. Can't knock that now can I? Yay!

Now.....if only this good fortune would land me, say, free maid service for the rest of my natural life? Whaddya say Big Guy? Pretty please?????


  1. Sounds like things are going your way......because you DESERVE IT!

  2. Anonymous -

    Don't know who you are - but if you know me well enough to say I deserve this stroke of luck, you probably know how much I suck at receiving praises. Especially anonymous ones...feels a bit stalker-like to me.

    Would you be so kind as to clue me in re: who you are? E-mail works nicely. :)

  3. Congratulations! And. Ah. If you cash in on that whole maid-thing, could you please put in a good word for me, too?
