What's up at Chez Crazy

Sorry I've been absent lately. Things have been busy at Chez Crazy.

Moe turned 17. How is that possible? He was a baby just the other day.

He used to look like Cindy Lou-Who's brother.

Little Moe, who used to be so cute and sweet, is now almost 6 feet tall. He wears size 13 men's shoes. He is LARGE.

Moe had specific requests for his birthday gifts. These were his specified needs:

  • A replacement mp3 player for his crappy broken mp3 player - does not need to be an Apple product.
  • 2 cans of Spam.

"If I get these, I'm good!" he told me. What's a mother to do?

Of course he got these little things, plus a few more things which he was very pleased with. What a good boy!

The big news at Chez Crazy is related to me. After many months of on-again, off-again job hunting, I have finally landed a terrific job! I start Monday working at an international business consulting firm. I'll be supporting their internal Accounting functions (I'm an IT geek). The pay is really outstanding - I feel like I've won the lottery! And bonus - some international travel! Probably a week per year in London, maybe other places. Woo-hoo!!!

Many at my old office are sad to see me go. And I've been there for some time - 7.5 years is really a long time in the IT world. So I'm being thrown a little party today and having a big going-away luncheon tomorrow. It's really nice to know that you've been appreciated.

Want to see a few things Larry's come up with? His Superheros have rock bands!


And Red.

I don't know who won his battle of the bands.

I leave you with my little sugar maple in my front yard. If you look carefully at the top, you'll see a wren puffed up on a branch.


  1. Hey! Hooray for the new job!!! I hope you just love it. I'm pretty certain blue won the band battle (blue's my favorite color, so it just stands to reason to me).

  2. Wonderful news! It has to be a big relief! You will be missed, they will finally realize your talent! And now you can visit Jane! How exciting! I'm so pleased for you! And Happy Birthday to Moe! Larry's rock bands are clever, and I DO see the wren!

  3. Congrats in the new job! I'm so happy to see something good happening for you.

  4. Congrats on your new job, 7.5 years IS a long time to stay in one IT job! Enjoy this fresh start!

  5. I hope you'll be very happy in your new job!

  6. Congratulations on your new job, if you come to Bath or the West Country we can meet up.
    Amazing how they grow one minute little children the next off out into the big world, I hope he had a great birthday.
    Good luck for Monday.

  7. Woot! Woot! FanTAStic! A going away party and a great place to go. I don't think the world gets any better than that. Congratulations. You have earned it!

  8. Awesomely awesome new job. Have a wonderful time. Happy Birthday to Moe.

  9. CONGRATULATIONS on your new job!
    And happy birthday!
    So many good things in your world...I'm glad for you.
