Wow! Congrats on this, expat! Besides her "big mouth", she must be freakin' smart to get that fellowship!!!! And just think, when she's a lawyer, you can really cut loose cuz she'll be able to get you off in court!

sorry, y'all for some reason, the link above ends with --she's and will not work. If you delete this, it will work. I will try it one more time below but if the same thing happens, that will work.

LOL I didn't notice this second link, but I worked my way around the site and found the article. I really admire all she has done. I can give a speech, but debating is not something I could ever do.

I finally got a job!!!!
Three dollar raise from the last job!!
Full time instead of 8 silly hours a week!!
9 miles from home instead of 18!!
Nicer cleaner office!! Quiet with no car noise or paint smells!!!!
Very casual, I can wear jeans and tee-shirts!!
