Got together with tamago today and we had a lovely time dishing ("Ever noticed how much our social lives resemble a visit to a zoo?"), looking at pretty rocks, shopping, making things with pretty rocks, pausing to create dinner, and finishing up more work with pretty rocks.

Tomorrow we are going to go get more pieces to go with the pretty rocks. In a way this is a last hurrah of unemployment, as I embark upon an exciting career in the field of airport security screening on Sunday. I expect to be amused, and very, very patient, and to be able to pay the bills if I am frugal. I am continuing to hunt for employment that will not require me to be quite so frugal (most recently I interviewed with murdoch, to our mutual vast amusement), but having this will keep me from tearing all my hair out (I like my hair) or going completely tharn.

In the meanwhile, there are pretty rocks. I am grateful to see my creative urge resurface so completely.

Hair!

I like your hair too! Though, I must admit, I also have a weakness for bald women. Mmm Sinade.

Yes, do keep from tearing all your hair out. The fact that Fang is anchored securely to your scalp is likely the only thing keeping the bay area from having to endure a ravening hair rampage. I know. I've nearly been eaten by Fang, myself, and escaped only through Ambar intervention and blind luck.

Fun to be close enough to flirt with death that way, though. :)

You've been hired by TSA? Which airport? How long ago? And perhaps if we work at the same airport you can come by my cage and throw peanuts at me.

SFO, and I expect you're going to be throwing peanuts into *my* cage. This coming week is training at the Westin, and Revelation of the Mystery that is my schedule. After that we'll be actually on-site.

Wow, airport security screening? A glimpse into a whole different world! Do tell what it's like! And... good luck on the hunt for a job that will pay more. I bet an entry TSA job doesn't pay squat. :-/

So far, it's been a lot like being treated like a drooling moron. But there were actual drooling morons, right there in the room with me, so it was understandable, and I got to practice being patient some more.

Look on the bright side...

At least it's a job... for now... until you can find something better. I'm starting MY new job on Saturday, and I know it's going to be a world better than the group home crap I'm dealing with. At any rate... you'll find what you're looking for. :) Hang in there, and gimme a call some time so we can hang out. :)

Go Ambar! Having even a frugal income and a job
is good for the sanity. And I suspect you will shortly
have the most *interesting* array of work anecdotes...

Pretty rocks! What kind of work with pretty rocks?
