Yes, I'm still alive...

It's been a really long while since I've updated my blog, so here it is folks. Yes, I'm still alive and kicking, though it seems that despite my best efforts, my typical winter hibernation mode is starting to kick in. We can NOT let this happen! Now, granted, for the last two-three weeks I have been working every day, long hours, and even going in on the weekends, which kind of negates the possibility of a "life". However, this weekend will be my last weekend having to go into work! (at least until another study like this one comes up in the farrrrrrrrrrr future) So yay for overtime, but I'm damned ready to sleep in one morning instead of getting up at the butt-crack of dawn for three weeks straight.

To recap as succinctly as possible the last several days. Firstly, Steve and Kathy's Halloween bash rocked! There was much fun had by all, and the kitty litter cake was awesome! I especially liked the tootsie-roll turds.... mmmmmm, yum! Thanks for inviting me guys, you're great!

As for non-work stuff.... that's the extent of my "fun" for the last couple of weeks. Yeah, I know... I've got to get me a life, but hey, I can do that now that I'm not going to be working on the weekends again. :)

As for work... going strong and going great! Though there were a few minor irritations with projects, on the grand scale everything seems to be rocking together nicely. By irritations, I refer to a few like the following: the formulations department not having the compound ready on time (necessitating a delay to me by about 1 1/2 hours to an already 10 hour day), no oxygen for the anesthesia machine (which I found out about the morning OF the study I was to begin running, even though I had ordered the O2 delivered DAYS before), formulations putting the compound that they made up into vials that I could not get the syringe into so I could draw it up to dose (yeah, and these are PhD's???). All in all, though, I have to admit that these minor irriations and delays won me some bocu overtime, so I can't complain too much! :)

I won some yarn on ebay that is absolutely to DIE for! It's a handpainted lace-weight yarn done in natural browns... absolutely beautiful and 2000 yards of it! I've got a couple of bids in on others, and I'm hoping I can win those too. I've already delegated Yule gifts for everything, but the handpainted yarn is going to definitely become a wonderful shawl. I've also just realized that I have WAY too much yarn than I know what to do with. Unfortunately, I have to admit to a sever case of YAS (yarn acquisition syndrome).... I can only hope they find a cure in time, before my home is overrun moreso than it already is! Geesh, half a spare bedroom already full to the ceiling with yarn and I still want more... what's a girl to do?

Can you believe I actually drove home in SLEET tonight? Arguhhhh, noooooooo.... fall is not allowed to be over yet! It's the first real fall we've had in years and it's my favorite season! Damn it, I'm not ready for winter yet! *sniffle*

Well, that's what I've been up to for the last few weeks. Not really exciting, I must admit, but thankfully, I'll have the opportunity to "get a life" now. So, call me, email me, hell, send me smoke signals and let's party! ;)
