No More Empty Fortune Cookies!

I'm So Excited!

Wanna know why? I'm the luckiest Fortune Cookie in the world right now. Work is going great, the boss is recognizing that I got skillz, school is going well, I have the love of my life by my side and now...I get to go to a super cool art class with one of my all time favorite bloggers, Real Live Lesbian!
Not only am I psyched about the class, but I'm especially excited to meet Real Live, in real life. I think she's one of the best bloggers I've come across in the blogosphere. She's genuine, honest, and intriguing in her writing, and she's a fabulous artist as well! I look forward to drawing much inspiration from such a talented person. I'm hoping a tad bit of her talent will rub off on me through osmosis.
The art class is a focus on releasing negativity through art. Oh boy! With the current political climate, the state of the world's economy, and the latest string of extra preachy, end of days, god's punishment themed emails I've received, I could certainly benefit from releasing some negativity! Hell, who wouldn't?

You wanna know what else I'm excited about? Wifester's mom. Rewind. Have I told yall what a terrific Mother in Law I have? If you've missed it, she's FANTASTIC. Words can not describe how lucky I feel to have such a loving, caring, intelligent, open, and accepting mother in law.
I've long admired her for her poetic artistry, and her ability to make the Wifester's knees shake with just one look (something I've yet to accomplish) but now, she's gone and started up a business to assist builders in building Green Buildings. See, she took this really hard test from LEED, The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
I'm really proud of her, and I think that she should be really proud of herself too. She's making an impact on our planet, by teaching others and helping others to build buildings that are more earth friendly. Now that, my friends, deserves some kudos, if you ask me.
I feel privilidged to have such inspiration in such close proximity to me these days.

What's going on in your world?
