On the verge of something incredible happening in my professional life. Every step of this process has been uplifting, and a very important target was hit today. The spring weather in NYC isn't hurting any, either. It's a beautiful day.
Raleigh lacks in a lot of ways, but I can't imagine any other place where you can leave your office, drive to the DMV, register your car, get a new title and tags, pick up lunch at the Asian market next door, drive back to your office with no lunchtime traffic, put the new tags on your car, and eat your lunch all in 55 minutes. Seriously awesome.

As of 5:00 I am off until next Tuesday. Heading down to New Orleans for the 1st & 2nd round of the NCAA tourney. That helps my mood considerably, but just the fact that I will go almost a week without looking at an Excel spreadsheet is great.
An Anna's Hummingbird has built a nest right by our bedroom window. We watched her build it, and set up a tripod and camera to document. She's dutifully sitting on the nest right now - there's one tiny egg - but she makes me nervous because she seems to spend more time off than on it (they're supposed to spend 50-55 min per hour on the nest). I'm so hoping to see a baby hummingbird in a few weeks!
And we've got a pair of house finches building a nest in one of the hanging plants on the patio right now as I type. In front of the sliding glass door, in full view of the living and dining area. This is so cool! Spring is bustin' out all over.

That's so cool. Thanks for reminding me about baby bird season! I love watching for nests. When we lived in an apartment, hummingbirds had built a nest in our neighborhood, and it was fun to watch the nest from its inception up until the babies left it.
Beat this! I had an absolutely amazing day. Today, I had my second interview for my dream job, but the whole day was great. Not a spot of traffic all the way from San Diego to LA. Absolutely nailed the interview. Got on famously with the hiring manager. Took a beautiful twilight stroll through the tree lined back roads of Beverly Hills. Helped an old woman cross the street who thanked me and told me that I reminded her of her husband as "he was dark too". While waiting on a friend to join me for dinner, cruised through West Hollywood with the top down, a balmy breeze blowing and In Rainbows blasting. Pretty much 99% sure I saw Charlotte Gainsbourg at a stoplight in Hollywood. It looked just like her, she had the same accent and she had a driver. I was singing along to 'Down Is The New Up' while our cars were waiting at a redlight. I turned, made eye contact and did that squinty "is that who I think it is" thing. She rolled down her window, yelled out to me to turn it up and then started singing along with me. "Doooowwwn is the new uuuuuuuup!" Had an amazing dinner with a friend I hadn't seen since college and drove all the way home to SD without a spot of traffic and with a smile plastered on my face the entire way. Good fucking day.
