I'm employed! Well, for 4 weeks anyway.  Just a temp job with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, but I am VERY excited!  Cross your fingers that they will recognize what a diamond in the not-so-rough I am and hire me full time (I don't even think that's an option, but hoping can't hurt).  Also, to clarify: I am not pregnant.  I thought it'd be funny and get all the sparks flying across the blogosphere.... It did not.  I think three people asked me about it.  That's cool, guys.  I guess April Fools jokes are on their way out.  Also, I got an Iphone, and it is ahhhhmazing.  I'm not totally sure why I resisted for so long... well, aside from the cost... and the fact that it's silly and not entirely necessary.... but the maps are incredible, and they helped direct me to this interview, thereby getting me the job, so bang.  It's already paid for itself.  Happy Good Friday/Easter!

So, I guess now it's official, and I can finally share our big news; we WON THE LOTTERY!!!!!! Our last-minute ticket frenzy paid off, and we won!  We'll be splitting it with two other winners, but still - one third of $640 million is a lot of money! We've already contacted a lawyer and have our payout all set up and will be receiving $119 million after the lump sum and taxes.  Wow. I still can't believe it.  I am in total shock......

Yeah, yeah, April Fool's.  I know, it's not a very great one this year, but I didn't have much to work with.  I was going to go with the standard "I'm pregnant" line, but as I just found out that's incredibly true at the moment, I had to scramble for something else.

For the record, we actually did win the lottery - a whopping $9!  We only paid $6 for the tickets, so I'd say a $3 profit is not too shabby, considering the overwhelming majority of the tickets sold were worthless.  Anyway, sorry for the lame joke.  I'll come up with something better next year.  Or am I getting to old for this?  Perhaps.
