Is it Friday yet?

This is the third time this date has rolled around since the one that changed our lives. On February 29, 1996 [livejournal.com profile] hellbob & I packed all of our belongings in a U-Haul truck and left Fargo. Dad came up with the truck and I rode the 200 miles to the Twin Cities with him, and [livejournal.com profile] hellbob came after us in our little Mazda RX-7 with the two cats.

We weren't leaving under great circumstances. It was either pack up and move into mom & dad's house or become homeless because we just didn't have money for rent. We had some tough times in Fargo but we've managed to turn things around quite nicely.

[livejournal.com profile] akdar taught [livejournal.com profile] hellbob about working with computers and he was able to turn that into a career. We were able to first move out of my parents house, and later move out of our apartment into our own house. We've bought our first brand new car. [livejournal.com profile] hellbob has a college degree.

Yes, given a choice we would have liked to have made the move here on our own terms and in better circumstances, but regardless, it is one of the best things we have ever done.

It's not often you can look at one single event and see how much it changed your life.

This one changed ours for the better.

So everyone, raise your glasses in a toast, for I declare today to be a holiday!

Today is Fargo Hegira Day!

Hegira ( hiˈjīrə; ˈhejərə ): an exodus or migration. ORIGIN via medieval Latin from Arabic hijra 'departure,' from hijara 'emigrate.'

And one more thing today that deserves it very own post...

[livejournal.com profile] hellbob is done with college!! He just turned in his last assignment today and will soon be all graduated!!
And he made me all sniffly with his acknowledgments page for his final project:

Congratulations honey! I'm sooooo proud of you!

Sometime between today and tomorrow for that 1/4 of a second or so when time stands still it is a very important anniversary for [livejournal.com profile] hellbob & I.

February 29, 1996.

Ten years ago we packed all our belongings into a UHaul trailer and escaped from Fargo-Moorhead.
We pretty much didn't have a penny to our name but thanks to my parents we had a place to live here in the Cities and a chance at a fresh start.
The Sharon & Rick of ten years ago would not have ever been able to even dream of owning a house or a new car. They couldn't afford to go to college. And luxuries like Tivo & iPods & laptops weren't even thought about.
We also didn't know most of y'all.

It's not often you can look at one single event and see how much it changed your life. This one changed ours for the better.

So everyone, raise your glasses in a toast, for I declare today to be a holiday!

The internets are dead today. I'm at lunch and I didn't even have to go back on my friends page before hitting my posts from last night.

We got last Friday off instead of today.

If y'all haven't started listening to Coverville yet, the last few shows are good ones to jump in on since Brian had his listeners vote on their favorite covers. We could nominate one song, and then when the nominations were in he put together a ballot and we could vote on 5.

There were 5 shows with 8 songs each for the top 40 covers voted on by his listeners. #1 was Johnny Cash doing NIN's Hurt.

www.coverville.com

So go, listen, enjoy.

The song scramble contest that he had that I entered, I didn't win. But I was apparently one of only TEN people to get all six right. So yes, when he says Sharon Snyder when listing them, that is me.

Another cool thing... at the end of the show he's thanking people who've let him use their music, donated money or stuff, or just supported the show in some way. I was listening & completely surprised when he included me in the thank yous. That was pretty cool, cuz I don't really consider maintaining the uber-database of the show playlists to be work. Especially since updating it now consists of just copy/paste from the Coverville site.

So, if you ever wanna know if a specific song has been played on Coverville, or if an artist has either been covered or done a cover and Brian has played it, just let me know.


In other news, as you can see in teh pictures of [livejournal.com profile] lucky13charm's Jayne iHat, [livejournal.com profile] hellbob has his Nano. We ran to the Apple Store yesterday and exchanged the 2 GB I got him for a 4 GB (he was originally going to be getting a 4 GB, but they didn't have them in stock 4 days before Xmas...)

We just barely got to the store before closing, and while checking out I got to chat with [livejournal.com profile] s4 for a while.

Then we went and bought our copy of 40 Year Old Virgin, because Mark hadn't seen it yet. Funny funny stuff!


Pretty Gay Cowboys:
Southdale theater has Brokeback Mountain!! We need to go this week!! I don't know when. What works for you?

"If the snow on the roof is too heavy, you see, the ceiling will cave in. His brains are in terrible danger."

All that wonderful beautiful snow outside and Hellbob is out snowblowing instead of me. And he's probably hating every minute of it. *pout*
I'm a twisted individual. I actually LOVE snowblowing. It doesn't hurt my back like shoveling, but you are moving enough to keep warm.
But, what with the army of Martian Death Flu monsters living in my lungs, it would probably be a bad idea for me to be out there doing it. So he is and I know he didn't want to.

I finally made myself a sappy 'I love my husband' icon. I've been needing one for a while and since I'm here alone missing him I made one.

[livejournal.com profile] hellbob didn't sleep at home last night. He won't be tonight or tomorrow or Saturday either. He's staying in another woman's house waiting on a beautiful strawberry blond hand and foot, catering to her every need. *sigh*

I can't hate him too much though, because I love this other woman too.

Here's a picture of her )
