Sunday night Supreme Leader was watching a National Geographic special on viruses and N1H1. There was a lot of cool animation showing how a virus spreads and how your body reacts to it. Cool until I was on the bus the next morning imagining the invisible swirling vortexes of doom created by the ventilation system, the cracked open window and the passage of disease ridden commuters. Then I sat around staring at my fellow commuters and wondering who was patient zero and trying not to breath. National Geographic sucks.
Why was I on the bus in the morning? Because sixty-three days after beginning my search for a new job I finally got a call back. Tough job market? A little. It's not even part time, it's seasonal for the Christmas rush with the possibility of being kept on afterwards if I make a good impression. I'm not going to go into details on what it is yet or who it's with, I'll get a lay of the land first and decide what's safe and what's not. Whatever, it's a job. Like I told my interviewer who was concerned I was overqualified for the position, my mortgage doesn't care.
A few weeks ago I won a book over on Carolyn...Online but hadn't got around to mentioning it because, well, shit happens. Anyway, the book is called To: A True Story In Letters which is a compilation of blogs and emails between Carolyn and Darcy Mayers of MsPicket To You. I haven't actually read the entire book yet due to the monstrous back log of other books I have to go through, so I pawned it off on my assistants.
I just got off the phone with Supreme Leader who is coming home from work now. Apparently the mac & cheese I ate for dinner should have been thrown out already. That would explain why my stomach feels this way.
Go to this site. I'm not going to go into a spiel about why you should accept to say that it's waaaay cool and you will be too if you go look at it. Unless you're at work and don't have sound on your computer in which case forget about it because it won't make any sense. Make sure you come back after work though. Seriously. You'll be one of the cool kids.
Now, get ye gone to the land of Keelydom, see all that is wondrous and good.
