New Years x 3  
Remy's out of town this week, so I'll try to ignore the gaping temporary void in my life and be industrious at home. I've already vacuumed and dusted and gotten dishes out of the way, now I just have to snip the stringy, frayed bits of carpet in the corners of our apartment that the cats have been tearing out to chew/gag on. Ah, yet again, I'm tasked with preventing the lovable little morons from killing themselves. Also got a copy of TurboTax over the weekend, so I'll try to get a jump-start on our tax return. First time we're married filing jointly, yay!

Lots of New Yearsage in the near future. Sometime around the 18th, Remy and I want to go to Plum Blossom- a half Chinese New Year/half birthday thing (I already told him, though, that the only present I want is him not traveling the following week). And the month after that, of course, is Nowruz- Persian New Year, on the spring equinox. It's in the middle of the week this year, but Mom has offered to throw a private celebration at her house the weekend before. So, we're planning to take a long weekend off work and head out to Pittsburgh on/around St. Patrick's Day weekend. There promises to be lots of good food, dancing, good times with the family, and of course the beautiful sofreh-yeh haft-seen Mom sets up every year. This'll be the first time Remy gets to actually celebrate Nowruz properly, and it's been years since I've gotten to, so I'm pretty jazzed.

Nowruz is going to ROCK. I'm so excited! I get Nowruz twice this year! The weekend I'm going to Chicago for the Fark Party, we're going to have dinner at Reza (Persian restaurant in Chicago!) and celebrate it ourselves, too!

Aideh shoma mobarak!!!

You and Remy were in my dream last night. Blade and I were visiting you guys at work; sort of. You guys were both working in this building that was next to your apartment; it was part car repair shop and part software development company. You two shared a cubicle, and were totally enwrapt in each other/your work and we never even were able to get into a conversation with you. Nearby there was a larger group cubicle that you could only get to over a bridge; seven people were working in it, and it was filled to within a foot of the top with water. Somehow they were able to breath without any real apparatus, and the water didn't hurt the workstations. It was apparently some sort of isolation state to help everyone in there concentrate entirely without distraction.

And everyone had scooters parked outside, like the character Zach Braff plays on Scrubs.

Eee, chinchillas! =D

Wow, heh, I almost never remember my dreams in that much detail- and when I do, they're way effed-up! We have to meet up with you guys again at some point, it's been way too long!
