Dirty baaaaaaabe

First off, you have to go see this--Savvy and I are considering taking our act on the road.

I can't believe I get to see her precious self in less than two weeks. We will both squeal so loudly that possibly airline security will arrest us. And maybe the Nazgul will turn up. Also I'll get to see Baby Ethan some more, which I'm very excited about since he was newborn the last time. And everyone knows newborns aren't real people yet.

Other good news for the day: I talked to my advisor and he says I'm in good shape and just need to finish the thing. So yay for that! In my euphoria must remind self that have not actually finished yet so cannot relax and begin the festivities.

Amyjane asked what's on my list for the next two weeks. And since I imagine (key word) you're all dying to know, here it is:

Dinner tonight at a locally famous chippery. It's in a nearby village called Rothley and you have to book ahead if you want to eat there. Lady J says if you want real fish & chips then this is the best place.

Housewarming toast for one of the YSA tonight. I'll be seeing people that I haven't seen in months, so I'm excited. It's called a toast because everyone brings yummy bread with something to put on top of it. I can fully support that kind of a party.

I want to go dancing next week.

I'm likely going to the Preston temple for a day to clear my head.

Wicked is next weekend. Cannot be more excited.

Goodbye-ish party next weekend or week after. Will distribute possessions among friends in manner of dying person or similar. Ladies, speak up now if you want the flat-iron with ceramic plates. Only used twice!

I have a honey-scented bath bomb and a chocolate scented bubble-bath bar from Lush. They, along with a nice long candlelit soak, are my reward for when I get the dissertation in to the binder.

If the Loughborough College opens up and has appointments before I leave, I'm going to get a massage and have my hair done. Otherwise I will resemble a frizzy-haired hunchback in all the wedding photos, and we don't want that. Better for people at the reception to ask me why I'm still single than to take one look and have their answer.

I wish I could do all of those things. Especially the part about bread and the part about Wicked. That one i will not be getting over my jealousy soon.
Also, seeing a new post coming: dumb stuff people say whilst at the wedding! Can't wait!

Nemmy, my only regret is that I won't be there to dothose things with you. We must figure out a way to go back somehow. Myabe you can come visit while cooldad and I are serving a mission there, or something. I don't know. Nice dance moves on the other blogsite. Can't wait to see both of you perfrom.

word werification: powjinqi

They must have seen the dance moves too!

I'm happy for all the stuff you get to do the next few weeks. What a lot of nice rewards for getting the thesis done. I saw Savvy's dance moves on your sister's blog. They're pretty sharp--you'll have to work to keep up with her. DesTot was pretty intrigued, too.

Those tub things sound like they should be eaten, not stuck in bathwater!

You sound like you have a fun two weeks ahead of you...except for that dissertation part. My husband's working on his master's thesis right now, so I think I have a glimpse of how miserable it is. Anyway, good luck with that!

Curse you, Nemesis. I have held steady.

In other news, congratulations on the almost-being-finished thing.

Seriously, those Brits better take you up on the giving away of all your earthly possessions. I totally cashed in on that last year.
