Bid list submitted a few minutes ago. Let the freak-out commence!!! What, you thought I knew what I was doing?? Top factors were working in my cone, getting off language probation, and (hopefully) security & quality of the Mini-Menace's education. I think I had a pretty decent mix of highs, mediums, and lows, so I'm hopeful that I'll be assigned a high or medium-rated post. My absolute top choice isn't, I think, a terribly desirable post, so I'd like to think I stand a pretty decent chance of getting it; but I could be completely wrong. Sadly for the Mini-Menace, the Bahamas were (was? singular or plural? My brain is fried!) not on the list, so he started lobbying for Tijuana. Why? Proximity to Legoland. I wish my decisions were that easy.
Also from this weekend, another entry in the annals of Red Menace High Quality Parenting: letting my son listen to Cee-Lo Green. Think that's balanced out by watching The Bad News Bears? You might think so, except for having to explain that Walter Matthau was a drunk and that "Blow it out your bunghole!" should not be repeated at school.
