Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

In which my dad proves he's a big old softie

It's no secret that my dad and I have had a...contentious relationship for the past 23 years or so. There have been lots of knock down, drag out fights between us over the years, but in the last two or three that relationship has mostly been on the mend. Sometimes I still think he's a bonehead, but for the most part, he's a good guy.

I was talking to him on the phone today since yesterday was his birthday (no, I'm not a bad daughter. I called and left a message, but they just changed phone service so there was some weird stuff going on with the machine), and in updating him about life I mentioned that every time I get off the subway to go to work, I'm greeted by an advertisement for the museum featuring Jim Henson and various Muppets, including Gobo, Wembley and Sprocket! And then I complained that the various museums are too darn expensive. So Dad asked that if he gave me $50 for my birthday, would I go to the museum. I told him of course I would, but he didn't have to because he and Mom already gave me $200 so I could fly back to Ypsi for my bridal shower this month, but he's insisting.

So for my birthday, Billy and I are going to the Museum of Modern Art. Thank you, Dad :-)
