My life exploded so here’s some pictures.

Tonight I’m in Fredericksburg, VA because there were 4 accidents on I-95 between DC and Richmond. Despite my best efforts to avoid the traffic, Route 1 was also a complete clusterf*** and there’s no other alternates. Needless to say, I can’t wait to go to Waffle House in the morning and get to drive more than 55 mph tomorrow.
Two more days of driving till Miami, and then it’s time for Salute to Vienna! Because who doesn’t love Viennese waltzes to ring in the new year? I’m already practicing my Viennese offbeats (and looking for new books to load on my Kindle…) 😛
Today is our last performance of the Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s The Nutcracker. What a great week it’s been playing with all these wonderful people!
I haven’t officially started my trial at Automattic, but reading about Burrito Friday in the Field Guide just gave me a great excuse to try Lime Grill in Midtown. I got a “naked” Big Cali burrito since I’m gluten free, and A got the legit one all wrapped in tortilla goodness. I don’t think it was quite SF mission style, but damn. It was good. Lime does a 2 for 1 special on beer and sangria too, so A and I enjoyed some adult beverages. Yum!
I’ve been hired at Automattic for a trial period as a Happiness Engineer, and I can’t wait to get started! My official trial start date is December 2, and I’ll be able to work alongside the other Happiness Engineers bringing joy to the interwebs. I’ll still be keeping my Horn in Real Life blog about my “other” life as a professional horn player, and putting bits about WordPress and other random goodness over here on erinapaul.wordpress.com.
For now, here’s a picture of a cat in Croatia.
