Feeling pretty good about it all
I paid off my new computer today and stuffed a ton of moneys into savings, so I'm a-ok! Also bought the 'writers block' shirt from Woot. Tonight, I'll be resplendant in my Gryffindor scarf as I paint the town red (and gold!) with my workmates at the Harry Potter opening night. My coworker Rosa is dressed as a Slytherin. She's done a fantastic job - custom house pin and everything - but it has to be said, she looks like a Nazi.

Me and a few of the others are working late tonight. Joe and Mark are hanging out together in the Indooro library... geeks. :D Rosa is lusting after a hamburger bed (www.hamburgerbed.com) and it looks as though my Cintiq will be returned to me in working order tomorrow night. Sadly I have to haul my computer (box only, at least) in to the helpful fellas at Harvey Norman, but the upshot is they got the Cintiq working on one of their machines today and they think they can do the same on mine.

Jangles got shut out of our room last night, and when we let him in this morning he was ridiculously affectionate. Nibbling and licking my hands and face, kneading the pillow, my arm, anything he could reach - it was a nice way to wake up. The boy and I have been having a few late nights lately... this may or may not be because I have got him hooked on Animal Crossing. Today he texted me just to tell me he'd caught an ocean sunfish.

Work has continued with the 'frustrating' schtick and I continue to hang in there. I have not yet instigated 'Operation Get-Fired'. Logic is telling me to cool my heels and stay put 'til the end of the year. That's another five and a half months of managerial bullshit, however, and I've only got eighty-odd years on this earth. Hmm.

On the other hand, what would I do with myself for the intervening months? Too late to enrol into a second-semester TAFE course. I would HAPPILY write the time away, but that wouldn't bring in any income whatsoever, and while Joe and I could get by just fine, I want to have savings when I head down to Tassie. Sensible Tania wins for now, but I'm not calling it a definitive victory just yet.

Man, I need a massage. Or some wizards n' shit.
