Hello, LJ-Land!

Hi! Okay, so here is my life lately:

* WORK, WORK, WORK. I am still recovering from the Christmas madness, but slowly getting back to my routine. I should be back to normal by the time... Christmas comes around again.

* Traveling! I went to Vancouver last week. LUSH does this thing called "Three Wishes", where they ask anyone who's been with the company for more than 2 years what their Three Wishes are, and they can be anything from "I really want to get my own sticker made!" to "I want invitro fertilization!" and then they try to grant that wish. It's really cool, and as far as I can tell, they're doing everything - someone got their damn wedding paid for, for chrissake. I think it's an employee-retention type thing. Anyway, one of my wishes was to work with Nic at some point (check your LUSH stash. You probably have something he made), so they sent me to Vancouver for a few days to hang out at the factory and make stuff. SO FUN.

* More Traveling! I am going to Scottsdale, AZ on Sunday for a week of Manager Meeting fun times. I'm there for work, but you can bet I'm going to get my ass in a cab and find an ULTA somewhere on my off-hours.

* Yet More Traveling! When I get back from Arizona, I have about ten days to regroup and then they're flying me off to New York City for a shop visit to the Herald Square LUSH. It's not far from the MoMA, so I'l probably be spending my off-hours weeping with joy in front of GREAT PAINTINGS AND WHATNOT. Yes.

* A lot of dentist visits. Not too interesting.

* Trying to train the cats to make me tea and get me my slippers. They aren't really into it. THIS IS WHY I NEED A DOG.

* Totally obsessed with The West Wing. I have no idea why we never got into it before. The women on that show are just outstanding. AND STOCKARD CHANNING IS THE FIRST LADY.

* Getting excited for the Hunger Games! It blows my mind that Woody Harrelson is Haymitch. THAT WAS TOTALLY MY IDEA!

So. What's new with you guys?

I, too, am looking forward to The Hunger Games. And I'll be in Arizona for a week in March, when it comes out. (A bit after you'll be there, but still. Woo, movie, and woo, travel!)
