Back to your regularly scheduled program
Day 2 of the job search. Considering that it has hardly been 24 hours since I've applied for everything I'm not expecting to hear anything back yet. To be honest, being summer right now, I'm not expecting to hear anything period. Either way, I still have Mary Kay and I really should set up a meeting with my director so taht we can start to plan my business and get it off and running. Who knows? It might be so successful that I wouldn't have to work at a regular job at all. I mean, what's more flexible than your own business?
Yesterday the cats hid my glasses. This is particularly disturbing because if my glasses are not where I left them (or in the general vicinity anyway) I can't exactly -look- for them. So I spent all of yesterday in a half-blind stupor, which is very good for appreciating both sight and a neat household. The apartment is in semi-disarray right now, with unfolded clean laundry, stacks of dirty laundry and a slowly growing pile of dishes. I don't want to do anything about the dishes because we had tuna last night and everything smells terrible.
Today is my errands day. I figure that two days is enough spent moping around the house. (Not that I had any choice really, BCYC left me and several others with a nasty case of food poisoning in which we were all pretty much chained to the couch) I have to go to CallTrex and get my final cheque altrered (it says "Hanna Tan" not "Johanna Tan") and pay Tom for Fort. I'm also going to talk to Tom about getting my old job back, although I will be honest with him and let him know that I'm really looking for a job with lots of down time which would let me study. That's certainly not something that Pet Habitat can offer me, but what it can offer me is a regular cheque. I'm pretty firm about not wanting to return there, but who knows...if I get enough hours I can't say that I won't.
BCYC 2004 was amazing this year. Barring that the conductor was quite full of both himself and annoying Hallmark platitudes I had quite an awesome time. The people this year were friendly and open and I got them to all sing Happy Birthday to Jim over speaker phone (in full harmony no less!) after I explained that I was missing his 21st birthday to be there. It says something about the kind of people that were there that I was comfortable making that request. I also had the chance to play psychiatrist which is a wicked awesome game. If anyone wants to play it drop me a line. This game works best with people who have never played it and don't know anything about the game. All I'm about to say is that they got me asking some pretty incredible questions and there were answers that I didn't really want to know about. I hope this same crowd shows up again in Duncan for BCYC 2005 and that the food poisoning won't!
If anyone's wondering, I'm eating a strict diet of chicken porridge and nothing else. I know I'm blowing Atkins, but I really can't stomach anything else. I will go back on induction once my stomach rights itself again.
