Booya: From This Day Forward I Pledge To Use This Word At Least Once A Day

Booya motherfuckers! Guess who got a job? Guess who bought herself some glittery sandals to celebrate? Guess who's booking herself a massage today? Guess who's treating herself to a real grown-up haircut complete with scritchy scratchy scalp massage to fix the wrath of Supercuts? Guess who desperately needs to buy new bras so she can stop wearing the same pill-y nude one every day and can now afford to do so? Guess who's boobies will be oh-so happy? Guess who's officially off COBRA, off unemployment? Off her freaking rocker?! Booya www! That's me! Me! Me! Me!

This image has no real relevance to my post other than it came up when I typed "booya" into Google images. And maybe this is just a little bit how I feel today: as if I am oiled up and wearing leather gloves, tipping my hat to the ladies.
Of course I wouldn't be me, exclamation point and all, if I also weren't guessing who's having just a teensy bit of buyer's remorse. Guess who's already nervous about the first day? Guess who's worried she oversold herself in the interview? Guess who wonders where she'll eat lunch, and with whom? Guess who wonders if using "with whom" makes her socially un-lunchable? Guess who is scared this means she'll never write a book? Boo-yeah, that's me.
But more on that later, motherfuckers. (And I only say motherfuckers tenderly, as a term of endearment, like punk ass bitch, which is Bryan's pet name.) You all helped me in ways you couldn't even imagine these last few months, what with your comments and support, making me laugh when I felt as if my mouth were made of stone and debt. I love you. I honestly love you.

Pop quiz: Did I include this photo because a.) it showcases the finely coiffed layers of my Supercuts haircut? b.) I honestly love you a la Olivia Newton-John? c.) I love me some turned up collar? or d.) all of the above?

Off to celebrate!

Ooohhh! Let me be the first to congratulate you. And, if you need a reference for your skills as a lunch date, you know whose name to give out.
Love,
Rosalie

Your bro

Megan said...

Yay! I hope they know what they got,the best, clearly.

erkamu said...

CONGRATS!!! I also send you oodles of kudos for using the "BOOYAH" - it's a fave of mine...a guilty pleasure. I like the look of confusion on people's faces when I say it - One part embarassment, One part pity, One part AWESOME.

Lest I forget:


Biggity Booyah!!!

I *Heart* You said...

congratumotherfukinlations!!! that is awesome! can't wait for the stories about your new co-workers and their weird habits!!! and thanks to your bro- we now know someone is seeing what you are really worth! hope they are paying you a million!

L said...

WHOOP! WHOOP! HOOOORAY!!!!!! Congratulations!!! Oh, I remember how I felt the day I was offered the job I have now: health insurance, financial stability, etc. It's AMAZING! Girl, you go kick some ass out there, because YOU CAN and YOU WILL!

You are FABULOUS DIVA WRITER! And I will be first in line to buy your books.

Hooray for you! Maybe I'll buy some glittery sandals for myself to celebrate your new job. This is just fantastic. Congrats!

Erin said...

Yay! And I choose D:all of the above.

hej said...

Can you lend me twenty bucks .... tide me over 'til the weekend?

Judy said...

I am so, so proud of you and very happy....but, I get in line behind your Bro to say, "I told you so". Talent and intention will out...and you have both. Any company would be glad to get you at any price but I'm glad this has happened so your anxiety level can abate a bit and you can relax with your worst fears of being homeless and unable to buy new clothes put to rest. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU....and now that you make a lot more than I do (again), will you buy me some clothes too? Love Ya, Mom

zakary said...

You Rock! I knew you'd get a job soon. And don't be afraid about not writing a book. Now that the pressure to write is off the creative juices can start flowing.

Congrats on the new job! Booya! Awkward fist bump!

I saw that you've already been to Anthropologie.

Thanks for the comment at my blog. I've been wondering what happened to your blog. It was just gone...

Robin said...

CONGRATS!!! I am sure you will do great even with the first day awkwardness. I am also sure you will write a book some day...and that I will buy it! Enjoy the glittery sandals and I am sure the answer is 'D' all of the above.

Jessie said...

Woohoooooo! Let's throw a party... can we throw a party?!?

I'm with Robin and Jozette on the ONJ quiz. (You really put us on the spot with that one, though.)

I am so excitedly overjoyed for you and your fam, and I can't wait to hear about all of the new-job adventures to come. You are the amazing-incredible-talentedly-wonderful and should never second guess yourself on that, because we? We are your PROOF!

Love to you, lady! Booya!

Aw, girl, that's excellent news! And more money than before? Crazy! Even better news.

Now go give thanks to the gods by giving a chunk of change to a worthy charity of your choice. It's only right.

Yay, you!
