Kinda-Sorta-Not-Quite-Official-But-Still-Worth-Mentioning News

Yesterday Dr. SOB negotiated a contract with a hospital in Philly that includes a start date of November 1, 2007. It has yet to be signed, but I'm considering it a done deal none the less. We decided to stick around here for a few months while Dr. gets paid attending salary (quite a bit more than his fellowship pittance) so that we can buy a house right away. That way, we won't have to move into an apartment for a year and then move again into whatever house, and I don't have to jump from any tall buildings over the prospect of moving twice in one year. Needless to say, I am elated. Don't take it personally, Atlanta, but Philly is in my blood, and I need my blood.

I've been trying to find a way to express my gratitude to Dr. SOB, because in some ways this isn't the greatest career move for him. But it's not the worst, either. He'll end up being more of a big fish in a small pond back in Philly, but because of that he should be able to advance more quickly than he would here. So it's kind of fifty-fifty. He wrestled with the decision for a long time, and I know that my happiness was a major motivating factor in his decision. So the question is this: do I make him a lovely batch of chocolate chip cookie bars or does he get the world's best blow job? Most men might not even think for a second about that question, but Dr. SOB has a wicked cookie obsession. If I were a good wife, which I obviously am not, I would give him both. However, I have not gotten a full night of sleep since about fifteen months ago and I think I only have energy for one task. Perhaps I will flip a coin.

And lest you think I forgot, I have some more information for you regarding my upcoming contest! It should be up later this week, and it will be in quiz form! My one hurdle is the prize. I can not think of anything that is both cheap (or free!) and fun. I spent all of my money on the charity bully. If you have any good ideas, or have any goods or services to offer in exchange for massive site plugs, let me know.

This is great, and I vote buy the cookies and give the blowjob. To SOB, not as the prize.

Or for both. Whatever you're into.

I was going to say go ahead & splurge for the good Dr. Whatever you want to be buying is up to you.

Philly is much closer to NYC than is Atlanta....

and yay, contest!

So he stopped at the grocery store on the way home and showed up with cookies of his own, so I got out of that one!

des - agreed! There are so many bloggers I want to meet, you included!
