    Today the SEC filed charges on an alleged insider trading ring. I've been busting my keister on that filing, redacting litigation exhibits. Working overtime is a drag, but I will get a nice plump paycheck right before Christmas.

    After the press release was issued, The Boss sent an E-mail out to the office listing everyone's roles and commending them for their efforts. I was among the people thanked. That is what is technically known as a Warm Fuzzy.

    There was the girl right in walking in front of me when I went to the student center today, I don't really know her at all but she's pretty no doubt (her twin sister was in one of my classes semesters ago, but that's really it). She ended up leaving right after I was and I got to hold open the door for her and snuck in a "You're very cute, by the way." Doesn't seem like much but that's a big step for me. :news: Now next time I see her I'll just play dumb and think she's her twin sister. "I think you were in one of my classes a while back." :p

    Where is that from? I know Davo did his own version, I'd like to know if this came before, or after.

    The Muppet picture of Kermit on the lily pad and Jim at the sky was right after Jim Henson's passing.

    EDIT - I didn't know Davo did his own version of that picture.

    Okay. I just... Last night/early this morning was the school's yearly gala. Well, it's called a gala, but actually it's just one huge sparkle disco.
    Anyway, I went there, for the first time, and who was there also? Yep. I was totally embarrassed to death because I was insecure about pretty much everything about myself (despite the fact around 20 people told me I looked great...) and I was wearing a freaking dress, so I didn't dare to dance at all. I was just looking at the group a certain someone *nosebleed* was dancing VERY WELL. *more nosebleed* His best friend saw me looking at him, pointed, smiled, told him, and I practically died even more of embarrassment. I wanted to walk away, but then a girl from the school orchestra grabs my arm and shouts: 'Come on, why are you so shy?' I explained it quickly (also shouting, the music was very loud) and she smiles and pulls me with her. She said something to my crush and... The next moment I FREAKING DANCED WITH HIM. He was standing so close to me he touched me all the time, and we talked a bit (shouting also) and he was so nice to me! :flirt:

    Today, during my daily DDR workout, I beat my old high scores on Brilliant 2U K.O.G. G3 mix Oni and Butterfly Upswing Mix Oni. Very high full-combo AAs on both. To give you an idea of how strenuous those songs are, B2U burns off 19 calories in a minute and a half, and Butterfly burns 29.

    Not bad for a middle-aged broad, eh?

    Our local mall put fake snow machines on the top floor, and make it appear to snow down to the ground floor. It's so beautiful. :dreamy:

    The "snow" is actually bubbles.

    I went to the "A Fraggle Rock Holiday" at the Center for Puppetry Arts, and brought my Janken Fraggle puppet. When I put him on...well, you can imagine, it being a puppetry center and all. I had a great time talking to the kids, and posed for photos at the request of the parents. And, of course, I brought a bell and rang it during the screening of The Bells of Fraggle Rock.

    Afterward I was asked to join the Atlanta Puppetry Guild. :)
