Man, have I really not posted in here since September? *brushes dust off of random flat surfaces*

Things I could post about but haven't been:

  • Recipes! I have recently made, among other things: low-carb kishka, sugar-free and dairy-free chocolate ganache frosting, and whole-wheat sourdough bread stuffing.
  • Books! For some reason, this year I've been reading a lot more new things than I have in previous years. Including finally picking up the Hunger Games series, which oh my god, you guys.
  • Music! I have been living on the acapella offerings that my wonderful friendslist supplied me with back in the summer, further fortified by the various albums available on Spotify. (College acapella has changed some since I was in college. Everybody has vocal percussion now, apparently.)
  • TV! Doctor Who is on hiatus, Supernatural has not been making me as happy this year as it has in years past, and ... truth to tell, most of what I've been watching lately has been older stuff. Some of it much older, including original-series Who.
  • Writing! Seriously, did I never even post links to my purimgifts fics from last year? WTF, past me?
  • Work! ALWAYS FUN.
  • Homestuck! I got sucked into this webcomic about a year ago and have been mildly obsessed with it ever since. It is bizarre and amazing and there needs to be filk about it. Speaking of which:
  • How much I miss conventions and housefilks. But that's a sad topic. :(
  • Another sad topic: how much I miss my mother.

It's been getting better.

I was talking to somebody recently about why I haven't posted a lot, and it seems to be at least in part that I have lacked the energy to polish anything I write -- and the inclination to post anything I haven't polished. As my dear [ profile] sdelmonte says: the perfect is the enemy of the good.

This post isn't perfect, but it's going up anyway.

Hi, gang. You know I love you.

So today at the office there's a conference call.

Co-worker, over phone, says: "...and once we change the agency number in the database, we'll have to also change that number in all the payments, because we don't want to end up with floating data."

I, with immense self-restraint, do not say brightly: "In the event of a water landing, I can also be used as a flotation device."

Sometimes I worry me.

After just over a year of part-time employment, I have officially been hired as a full-time employee by The Claims Conference.

batyatoon: (might as well dance)
Hey, look, everybody!

Demon fishies!

In other news: I win at work today. GO ME.
batyatoon: (might as well dance)
So, that new job.

I'm an administrative assistant at The Claims Conference. Currently an hourly-paid temp, with the option of a permanent hire at the end of three months. Nine to five, Monday through Friday.

I started yesterday. I'm doing well so far, I think.

Hello, money. Goodbye, preferred sleep cycle.

Am back from Lunacon.

Am not dead.


More when I am conscious.

It's come to my attention that I really do need a This Sucks icon. But I don't have one. So for right now I want you all to imagine that I have one, and I'm using it.

Which is a really roundabout way of introducing the main theme of this post.

Which is that, as some of you already know, I've lost my job.

Back in the job market again, o joy. If any of y'all in the local area know of anyone looking for a competent secretary, drop me a line, okay?

I am also actively soliciting hugs and encouragement and the like. Because this sort of thing is hard on the ol' morale.

... I have a job offer. And I'm taking it.

Fulltime. Office secretary at a local Jewish girls' school.

This spells the end of my happy-go-lucky half-the-week-free part-time-job existence. This is a serious commitment. This is looking perilously like a career decision.

This will earn me more than twice annually what I'm making now.

I'm terrified.
Somebody hold me.
