I have...

some great news that I didn't want to post on Facebook and had forgotten to mention earlier.  After five years without a raise at work, including a 3% pay cut from which we got 1% back...The Powers That Be have decided that it's time to reward the long-suffering staff by giving back the rest of that pay cut plus 3% more.  So I'm getting a 5% raise in August.  I realize that this works out to 1% a year when you consider how long it's been since my last raise, but still...I'm pretty darned happy that we're finally getting SOMETHING.

One other thought, completely unrelated and very weird...and I've been meaning to post this as well, but again not on Facebook for obvious reasons: Sometimes I wish that male brothels were legal.  I swear I really do.  Because I have been involuntarily celibate for so long (since 8/2001) that at this point I would almost be willing to pay someone to have sex with me.   :::sigh:::

I know he's gotta be out there somewhere.
