Did you know that a vacuum cleaner is a great way to deal with an ant infestation? Last Friday (my birthday!) Luke and I came home from my sisters house to find a trail of ants leading from the living room all the way to the kitchen sink! While Luke made a late night trip to find some ant traps I spent half an hour sucking the the bastards into the bowels of our hoover.
On to other birthday goodies...
Luke got me The Great Muppet Caper, The Muppet Movie and season one of Doctor Who! I am so excited about all three! Good husband! I've already watched The Muppet Movie and I can't wait to start the other two. In case you didn't already know... I love Jim Henson Workshop. Also with the very generous gifts of all four of my parents (Marshes and Lucases alike) I was able to get The Muppet Show season two, the BBC's Pride and Prejudice mini-series and Big Brain Academy for the Wii. I really racked up this year... 25 is working out pretty well so far... Most of all I enjoyed having an excuse to talk to all the people I love. I heard from almost all of my friends and family either via phone call, text or facebook. I love birthdays. They're like your own personal holiday.
As for work... Things are going pretty well. I really can't complain. I have been well received by the staff and have made a lot of improvements to the studio already. I just wish that I could do more. But after working a 55 hour week last week I was definitely ready for some rest. My mom gave me a massage to day (which was amazing) and I'm finally feeling relaxed. I have today and tomorrow off before another crazy Patton Creek weekend, thank goodness.
