Today is a pretty good day. It did start off all wrong, though. I had this weirdass dream that kind of stuck with me. I was on my honeymoon and our tall was this huge building with a view of Central Park. They'd arranged a suite for us on the roof (there were like little condos on there and it was hard to tell where Central Park began and where the garden on the roof did). For some weirdass reason my family was present at the suite. I'm going with it that they were making sure I didn't run off as the marriage was kind of arranged. To top it off, the hotel was hunted and management would kill off anyone staying at the top floor. There was one window I kept trying to close the curtains to, but somehow they wouldn't stay closed and you'd see the ghosts of another couple running around and being chased down by something.

Yeah, I have no idea. Somehow things got less creepy when I started making out with the reluctant husband... Seriously, no clue. No wonder I was fucking tired when I woke up. (Though the whole being up too late might have something to do with that as well.)

Aaaaaaaaaanyway. Things turned up after that. I got called into a meeting with my direct boss, his boss and someone from HR to tell me that I'm up for promotion. There will be an interview and possibly some tests (they couldn't tell me for sure either), but they recommended me and my chances are pretty good. Normally, unless I seriously stuff things up, it should turn out okay. I'm nervous about jinxing, though. OMG! This would mean more money, bigger bonuses and possible a car...

I need to get my driver's license, but this could considerably help with the loan for the house. I hope. More moneys, please!

The last few weeks have been exhausting. Work is utterly insane and I don't know which way is up anymore. I think that means I need to make drowning noises towards the boss because if this keeps on, not only will my sanity be destroyed but this project is going to fail in epic proportions.

Most of the past week has been spent getting worked up and exhausted at home, and only having the energy to do some reading. Which has led without a fault to me falling asleep at 20:00 through to 23:00 and crawling into bed to sleep for real about midnight. I have turned into an utter wuss. Granted, the mistake is the whole lying down to read thing, but it's the only thing my brain seems to be capable of. That and that whole hospital game on lj. Damn you, lj.

My brain is stuck somewhere between The Lost Hero and the Nantucket series at the moment. The sequels don't have enough of my girl slash in it. Well, it's there, but not as much as I would like it to be, dammit. Oh girl slash. My search for a pb for Alston has led me towards Skin, Rokia Traoré and Ajuma Nasenyana. Which is me just rambling since none of you read the books. *shakes fist at you all*

And between all that I'm looking into getting a loan for the house. Which my parents are luckily helping me with or I would have had to waste so much vacation days for every single appointment. Granted, that makes me still spoiled and all that, but money affairs make me flail from here to eternity. *siiiiiiiiigh*

I might have just bought a house. Probably...

Someone pinch me?
