Random Thoughts Thursday 163

By , January 11, 2018 6:51 am
  • EXCITING NEWS! After all my whining (mostly on here), I found out at the end of the day yesterday that my detail is being extended by thirty days! Yay! That gives me enough time to finish some of the projects I started with my team. And my bosses said they will discuss it again at the end of those thirty days. Thanks for reading/listening, and your input and support! I apologize for being mopey AF, but I did NOT know what was going on with it, and I was starting to feel frantic.
  • Besides the Chewie and the porgs poster, Andrew also got me this framed comic from Poorly Drawn Lines I had asked for. Gah, it makes me laugh every time I look at it!

  • I hung said Chewie and the porgs poster up! I wonder how long until Steven asks me to take it down. Ha!

  • We still have all our holiday cards up in the kitchen. I think I’ll take them down when we start getting Valentine’s Day cards…

  • And speaking of Valentine’s Day! I found my favorite candy in the grocery store (it’s kind of hard to find). Yay! I bought six bags, and the cashier says to me “where’s all this going?” I rubbed my belly and said “right here.” Muah ha ha ha.

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy to hear you at least get another 30 days of your detail! I hope the discussions at the end of the detail go in a positive direction for you. Congrats on the small victory for now though 🙂

    Chewie looks so cute with his porg friend and his sweet portrait! How nice of Andrew to have that commissioned.

    Ooh, the framed poster looks nice. I like simple black frames; they look so classy. And why would Steven ask you to take down the porgs poster? Did he not like them?

    • kilax says:

      Thanks! That is my fave kind of frame too.

      Ha, so the porg poster is the only thing hanging in the living room… and it looks kind of… college dorm-y? It would look better in a theater room. Steven liked the porgs! 🙂

    I’m leaving my Christmas cards up for a while because I enjoy looking at them. But I did take my Christmas lights done this morning finally because I needed the outlet timer they were on.
    Yum, jube jels!! At which grocery store did you find these? I might need to go there.

    • kilax says:

      I like looking at them too. LOL that you needed to use that outlet!!! Ha! I have all the decorations down except the cards and the garland on the mailbox, oops.

      I found them at the Jewel Osco in Grayslake. Last year I found them at the Target in Gurnee. Let me know if you find them elsewhere!

    Yay!!!!!!! I love the porgs I wanna go see them (aka puffins) on Skellig island (the island in the movie) next time I’m home if I can.

  5. Katie says:

    ZOMG this shirt is available TODAY ONLY! Saw it in my inbox this morning and thought of you 😉


  6. I’m so happy your detail has been extended!!!!!! That’s SUCH great news! And the fact that they’ll discuss at the end of your extension sounds (hopefully) very positive as well. Yay yay yay!!

    Your little Star Wars corner is so perfect. I love your porg poster! And your stuffed porg!

    • kilax says:

      Thank you! I am so happy too! I was (obviously) so bummed about it ending!

      Thanks! I love it too. What’s funny is that this toy is the whole reason my BiL started joking about porgs – we were laughing cause we didn’t know WTF it was… and now I bought it for myself. Ha!

  7. Shelley B says:

    Chewie and the Porgs sounds like a 60s rock band.

    Yay for your detail being extended, and for having extra time to figure out your next step. 🙂

  8. Amy says:

    Glad your job situation is working out! Hopefully at the end of 30 days they’ll realize they need to keep you doing that.

    Love the cartoon – LOL!

    And the scene with Chewie and the Porgs was probably my favorite scene in the whole new Star Wars movie (yep, finally saw it)

    • kilax says:

      Thanks! I hope so too!!!!!!

      If you are on instagram, they post more funny cartoons!

      Yay! What did you think of the film? Chewie and the porgs really cracked me up!
