My sister got married so she and her boyfriend could actually be together and not on opposite sides of the world. My mom got married so she and her five kids (us) would be able to inherit from my stepmom should anything happen to her. Also, I don't know how this works in other countries, but here, sometimes being married can be the smartest choice financially.

What made my day: getting some of the best mail I've had in all my life from Jetske. I got a mix tape! :D

I'm moving this summer to room with some friends and I just found out there's a comicbook store next to their apartment. ;D

he is doing his final signing tour this summer and is making a stop in Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so freaking excited you guys.


In my head
it will be a magical moment and I will tell him how wonderful he is and ask him for a hug. In reality I will shuffle along whisper a polite thank you, blush furiously, and try not to cry.

ah i see! cool. you can do it! i'm sure he'll be nice and stuff, so don't worryyyy


day was made by: AFP date in vienna! there wasn't even a vienna date scheduled before all the dates were cancelled, so where did that come from...
plus the show is open air at the beginning of my summer holidays and, in mini-festival manner, together with Calexico! pfff thank you universe! gonna buy my ticket first thing in the morning.
i'm even considering to go to the other austria show as well...it's 2,5 hrs by train, the night before the vienna show... OPTIONS.

I met Neil Gaiman at the book festival here a few years ago. I think I'd only read Stardust and a few of his short stories at the time, so while it was a lot of fun, he wasn't any kind of idol for me yet. Always seems to be the way with me, I met Richard Taylor and Guillermo del Toro before I fully appreciated them, too.
Anyway, he's lovely. Don't be nervous.

Seeing daughter perform today made my day (the band, I don't have a daughter). You all should check them out if you don't know them, they're perfect and amazing!  :love5:

Multiple things related to finding a job. One of them was quite day-making. I feel bad saying more because I am far more fortunate than everyone else on the Shadowbox who is trying to find a job.
Me too, actually. Temp job extended further into the forseeable future than I thought it might be, and a positive interview about a potential part time job. Lets all share and give our fellow unemployed boxers hope?

They are supporting an artist I'm trying to see here in the States...so it's very possible!

Edit: BAH. It's sold out.
