1) Today I answered my first question as a TA without desperately IMing the other TAs online and without frantically Googling "where does the footer go in XHTML?" It was pretty much the highlight of my week - I talked about XHTML Doc Structure, linking to CSS style sheets, title tags, and editing web pages with Pico. I definitely deserve a giant raise, don't you think? Two weeks ago, I had no idea what Pico even was. . .shh, don't tell my students.
2) Yesterday I went in and got two of my birthday purchases price adjusted. The skirt I'd bought at Old Navy for 50% off was now 75% off and the sweater I purchased was $5 less than it was a week ago. Hello money, so nice to see you back again. If you haven't ever experienced the joy of price adjustments, I urge you to try it out immediately. I've never felt so pleased in my life.
3) I've finished two books this week, which shocks me as I'm up to my eyeballs in work (both of the money paying kind and the school kind). Praises to my iPod.
4) Tomorrow, some friends and I are having a little birthday bash to celebrate all of our birthday which are, um, not at all close together. There will be homemade sushi. I will be bringing this (the dessert at the end of the post, not the chicken puff pie).
