And the day after my car blew up in the middle of Norfolk, Virginia, I was accepted to a PhD program.

The end.

Using PIRA tactics to cow them into submission? Good work.

Congrats on the PhD acceptance!! That shit's hard work!

What program are you joining?

It is a 4 year PhD in History, with a focus in Digital Humanities/Public History and Material Culture. So basically my MA on steroids. It's at the University of South Florida, and I'll be within 45 minutes of my immediate family. Since my mom is starting to show signs of early dementia, we decided it was best that I consider getting back to the Tampa Bay area for a bit and help my siblings out before my dad retires. Mr. Suu will completing his career in the Navy here in Virginia.

I've been awarded full funding with a tuition waiver and an assistantship stipend.

God won't let you have nice things until he poops on them.  Trust me on this one.

At first I thought the car blew up because Mr. Suu decided he doesn't want to listen to his wife when she goes, "Hey, the Mazda sounds kinda funny, can you take it to work and see if it's acting up or if it's just me?" Then I figured it was because all of the Tampa Bay teams have gotten to their respective finals this year and this is my price.

Head gasket. The magic smoke came out. I freaked out, pulled over, got a tow truck which involved much drama of having a gas station owner yell at me and a cop yelling at the gas station owner for not being helpful to me when I was visibly in distress.

Then I went on base, got Mr. Suu's truck, which also has the check engine light on and needs brakes. I'm scrapping the Mazda this week and using the cash to pay for those fixes.

The PhD is at least fully funded. The hilarious part is getting the new car and getting back down to Florida in the summer.

Jenn feels awful about the whole thing.  "Poor kitty!"

I can't stop laughing, myself.

That's because she has a heart of gold.

Harald is fine. He was eating dinner and didn't even notice. Since his coat is so long I bet I can follow a trail up to his bed.  :lulz:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Lloyd J. Austin, a West Point graduate who rose to the Army’s elite ranks and marched through racial barriers in a 41-year career, won Senate confirmation Friday to become the nation’s first Black secretary of defense.

The 93-2 vote gave President Joe Biden his second Cabinet member; Avril Haines was confirmed on Wednesday as the first woman to serve as director of national intelligence. Biden is expected to win approval for others on his national security team in coming days, including Antony Blinken as secretary of state.

Biden is looking for Austin to restore stability atop the Pentagon, which went through two Senate-confirmed secretaries of defense and four who held the post on an interim basis during the Trump administration. The only senators who voted against Austin were Republicans Mike Lee of Utah and Josh Hawley of Missouri.

We need to have words with Hawley.

Out back.

In the woodshed.

It went on a national tour trying to find our new address through forwarding. As a result, half of the glitter on the front of the card got knocked loose. I felt this in the envelope before I opened it completely and rushed to the garbage, but it was to no avail.

Tell Jenn she sent me a damn pipe bomb of glitter. My kitchen is now coated in green, sparkling herpes as only I can expect from a card from Tucson. It landed on the cat, OH GOD, IT LANDED ON THE CAT! On the bright side, it's a bit of an improvement here in Hampton Roads, it gives the real Herpes Simplex 2 out of Virginia Beach a bit of pizazz.

You ARE right, Dok, you do live in a better place. This coast has too much fucking nature. There's a reason why all Holy Mentm come from the desert, after all.

Also, your sons look just like you and I literally thought your oldest WAS you and needed to make a double take. Holy shit, we're getting old.

There might be retaliation, which is a cheesy way of saying I'm going to give you my new address with style.

Okay for now,
Suu

I greatly hope there's no crazy violence come inauguration.

Well, we'll see in about 19 hours.

Yep.

My stress is touching the fucking sealing. Mr. Suu is not home, so it's me, the cat, chain locks on the doors, and the 12 gauge tomorrow. I don't fucking trust anybody after the MAGAs were rolling into off-base military housing in FL before the election.

Sure, they rolled right the fuck back out when Navy Police came in, but they had to be called.
