What's up, all? I don't ever post anymore, wah! But things have been busy and finally I'll get a couple of months to relax before a trip to the UK in August. :)

First off, I got a new job! I've been there three weeks. It's actually an "old" job, sort of-- I'm working at the IU School of Medicine genetics lab that I left in 2002 when I moved to Las Vegas. Same office, different position. Gotta say, the benefits are awesome at the university. I'm still working a few hours a week at the law firm just to help out, so it's been busy.

Also, we finally had my dad's memorial gathering yesterday. Man, what a lot of work! We had it at my house because I have a (mostly) nice back yard for socializing in and my house is easier to clean than my mom's because it's less cluttered to start with, haha. So there was a week of cleaning and the planning and the inviting and the food. The foooood. Mom and my bro took care of getting together pictures and stuff. But we had a great turnout - about 70 people in my little house! My daddy was a popular guy. :) And I got to see cousins I don't get to see very often at all. [personal profile] chorus_of_chaos came over and helped me get ready, bless her, and man, I'm so wiped right now.

So that's my excitement. How you all?

Congrats on the new job. Non-profits do have better benefits than most for profit businesses. Your trip to the UK sounds wonderful! Where are you going?

I'm glad you and your family were able to make that memorial gathering happen. *hugs you*

How is Fuu doing?

Nice to hear things are going well.

I'm glad you and Rhiannon have these chances to connect.

It's great that you have that job ... I'm assuming that you are pleased? It's hard to tell, sometimes, when you're going back to a place you left in the past. I expect the job won't be quite the same, and benefits are good things.

Have fun in London with Whymzy!

It's excruciating to find out how many candidates apply for each and every little position, and how much it's like going on a matchmaker style of first date to get to the interview. Contacts and relationships are so important. I'm very glad you found a decent job, though, and completely NOT surprised. I'm also glad that there is enough in it to keep it fresh for you. It's always easier to 'sell' things we believe in. Congratulations and good luck!
