i got a papercut on my pinky finger, right where the guitar string sits when i'm playing, so a simple little paper cut, horrendous in itself, is now bandaged up and briiight pink (the skin, not the bandage) after playing guitar at practice last night (norsican is our guitarist, but she's out of town, alas...).. so i'm typing with 7 fingers, and doing double duty with my left ring finger. all things considered, i can still type pretty fast.. (on a 'normal' day, i type about 75 wpm) my coworkers, in fact, tease me for typing fast... *shrug*

aaanyhoo, the main reason for this post is to, first of all, thank lines for the wonderful handwritten letter she sent me *grin*... maybe one day i'll get around to writing again, both creatively AND letter-y. (can you tell my coffee hasn't soaked in yet?)

seecondly, the hollyday season is coming up, so i would like to start getting everyone's addresses together for my yearly job of putting those postal workers into overtime...

if you would like a card from me in a month or two or four, email me your address at akeating@icegallery.com and i'll put you in my big honking black book..

i forgot about this until i was talking with dreaxo about something, then i had to post it here:

last sat at my friend peyton's band's show, my ex manager was the bartender/owner, and announced over the p.a. to the restaurant... "we have an extra special guest tonight, sitting in front of me, we have miss aubrey keating, who is not only just a friend of the band's, but also an established travel agent, so she will be able to assist you with any of your travel needs tonight.. let's give aubrey a hand..."

hee.

today is my 3 year anniversary here at ICE. three years ago today, i started in accounting by doing nothing all day but typing up cruise receipts and calling cruiselines for faxed confirmations.

about 3 years ago, one hour from now, is when my partner they hired me to work with that was confident and knowledgable about everything that would take me under her wing had a severe nervous breakdown and locked herself in the office sobbing about how she couldn't take it anymore, shortly before running out the front door and never coming back.

i should have known. i should have taken a hint, or gotten a clue. *wink*

and, cool name of the day that i booked on a cruise : Ms. Ling Long Hwang.
