    One of the venues here in Houston is offering a St Patrick's Special: select shows at $10 general admission. I managed to purchase for the following shows:

    Children of Bodom, Swallow The Sun, Wolfheart
    Yngwie Malmsteen
    Victor Wooten
    The Winery Dogs
    Whitechapel, Dying Fetus, Revocation, Fallujah

    Including fees, it added up to a total of $59.63 ... that is $14 per show! :D

    Don't know where this fits, but I just watched a program on Dutch national TV about 70000 Tons. Still so familiar faces even though I've only been on the first four cruises, makes me want go back.

    I finally finished my P. Eng (Professional Engineer) application! In 9-12 months I'll know if I'm a fancy Professional!

    After 99 days of bothering people to actually fill out my damn reference form, it was FINALLY finished today. Now it's ACTUALLY going to move somewhere. Boy do people suck, but the worst part (for me) is over now!

    YAY!!

    I had a good few days woke up yesterday to an email saying I'd received an employee recognition award. Not a huge thing (will be able to get like a $50 gift card with it), but I was quite happy for the 'recognition of a job well done' aspect.

    But THEN, got another email later in the day from the big boss saying that I was in the higher percentile regarding annual bonus payments due to my performance! AGAIN, great from a 'recognition of a job well done' aspect, but also seriously good (and handy!) cashy money for that one :D

    And now, enjoying a public holiday today :)
