Well, I guess there are still a few of you out there...  Anyway, time for another drive-by update.  I kind of feel like they're all 'this week at work', but since I don't really have a hobby other than you guys (fandom), oh, well.  In the exciting life of Rhia, we had two more near-disasters with the Christmas tree (we've never had this many problems with a single tree before), got almost all the rest of the decorations up, and are working on the candied pecans.  I want to take some in to work, to contribute to the holiday fattening-up.  ;)

Speaking of work, I was terribly excited to find out that we do indeed have an office Christmas party, and it will be at a ritzy restaurant in town next Thursday night.  On the company expense account.  Susan asked us all what kind of wine we wanted with dinner.  o.O  Should be fun, as I really like all my co-workers.

Also, I'm putting this out to the Universe, as Wings says: one of my friends at work (an asset manager) told me that the company might be hiring three new AVPs (asset managers) and he thought I should let Erin know I would like to be considered, because I do such a great job at my job that I would be good at the AM job.  I was very flattered, and decided, 'what the hell, why not?' and let Erin know.  She said essentially she'd talk to Tom about it, but I figure I lose nothing by mentioning it.  I love the job I do now, but the AM job would pay more (and be a ton more responsibility...); if I don't get it, I've still got a job I love.

My cat is eyeing me with disfavour at the moment since I put some Burt's Bees cuticle stuff on my fingers earlier and she doesn't like the smell of it or the feel of it on her fur, or something.  Oh, well.  Everyone's a critic.  I actually semi-seriously considered kidnapping one of my cats to sit on my lap and keep me warm at work this morning.  It's freezing here, and the office is always somewhere between 67 and 71 F (way too cool for winter, when it's 20-40 F outside).  Alas, Mom thought it was a bad idea, so the cat stayed here and I froze.

Guys, I feel like I'm in that "Rats in the Walls" short story by the guy who wrote all the Cthulu books.  I come home from class last night (late; she kept us an extra twenty minutes more than usual) and one of my cats, Gracie, thinks she's found something along the wall of my room.  We check, but there's nothing there.  As I'm going to sleep a few hours later, I think I hear some scratching sounds; maybe it's Grace playing in the hall, right?  Nope.  This morning, the scratching sounds were back.  They were there, on and off, all day, in this one spot.  We got a guy to come out before dinner and he had to knock a hole in the back of my closet, because it turns out I had a teeny tiny mouse in the space between the sheetrock that makes up my closet and that making up the hall.  It was seriously cute.  However, an hour or so after he left, I heard the same scratching sounds, and so did Gracie.  So now we're pretty sure there's at least one more tiny mouse in my walls.  We spent almost an hour trying to locate it visually or through touch, and can't.  So I'm stuck with a hole in my wall and more mice in there until tomorrow at least.  Ugh.  Hopefully he'll get all of them this time.

So, Koko is on my bed with me, as he is most every afternoon, and he just woke up and stretched.  Sometimes that's a prelude to leaving (demanding food from the Food Lady downstairs), sometimes it's just time to change positions and go back to sleep.  I peeked down by my feet, and was happy to find I still have a cat on the bed.  I have realised, yet again, that my happiness depends entirely too much on the whims of a ball of Siamese fur with a loud mouth.  ::eyeroll::  I did sort of get him to chase after a slinky this morning, though...

Lolcats ā€˜nā€™ Funny Pictures of Cats - I Can Has Cheezburger?:I may have to get a poster of this...

And this xkcd strip is just too perfect to pass up, though it's on the theme of open source instead of cats...
