* We've been taking advantage of spring break to go house hunting. Neither of us is in a position to apply for a loan, hehe, but we figure we might as well look anyway, should a job/jobs suddenly come our way. (One of the houses we looked at was being "babysat" by three very sweet cats. All of them were cute and loving and purred lots- quite a contrast to Tootsie, Ray's tonkinese. Tootsie is very pretty and is nice when she wants to be, but is generally scared as hell of everyone and everything!)
* To that effect, I was downtown yesterday taking a programming aptitude test for a help desk position (yeah, I don't get that either, but I think it worked out to my advantage, LOL!). It was basically mathematical expressions, decision trees, and a little section on base 8 arithmetic- no problemo whatsoever for me. But I think a lot of the other people there had no clue what they were doing, hehe. I finished the test before anyone else, and as I'm sitting there waiting for time to run out, watching all these middle-aged people still struggling over the thing, I'm thinking, "How's it feel to have your ass beat by a 22 year-old?" ;D
* I ordered our wedding rings! They're being made by a custom jeweler out in Colorado. They're the "One Ring" from LotR (we've had the idea to do this for a couple years now); this guy hand-engraves them based on the text found in the books (the text found on the movie ring is different). We've shopped around and seen machine-cut 10K gold "One Rings" being sold for $550+ EACH. This guy is making the pair of 14K rings for us for $400. =D The bargain hunter in me rejoices mightily. And lo, my credit card despairs! ($400 still hurts, but I can cover it). I can't wait to see them.
