the season of sneezing


So I got fired from my job. It was jackassery. Basically saying that I was going to be out of town for a two days a month in the future was unacceptable. The whole thing was pretty much a fiasco all around (the job itself included). This morning, at a temp agency, the recruiter was going over the details of a job I hope to get and I mentioned that I’d be out of town at the end of the month and she said, “I’m sure it’s fine, I mean, it’s a part-time job and a wedding,” her tone implying that everyone would understand where the importance was in that situation. Which, yeah, sums up how I feel. Giant events in loved one’s lives or shitty-ass easily replaceable job? Hmm…

But job hunting is the suck and money is an absolute necessity, so I do need to find me some of that and fast. Keep your fingers crossed for this job, or I’ll be here trying to guilt y’all into buying jewelry for everyone you know so K and I can continue to have electricty and, you know, eat.

Speaking of K, her new book comes out April 3, so you better go pre-order in case the world gets wise to her genius immediately and it sells out all fast.

Also, it’s spring, there’s no denying it.

Spent a lovely weekend in K-town with Rhi and Mr. Rhi, Jed, Pun and Sir Pun, and Rhi’s delightful pixiebabygirl. It was lovely and the food and company were good. What more could anyone want? Well, I got my first sunburn of the season too, which is excellent, as, you know, SPRING!

  1. Oh man, that SUCKS. I’m sorry! I can’t believe you got fired because you’re going to a WEDDING. Ugh.

    On the jewelry front, I still want one of those leaf necklaces. *G* I will pay money! Promise! Do you have any of those gorgeous little leaf beads left?


  2. Yes, it does. Buy my book; pay our rent. /guilt

  3. That’s absurd, and sucks mightily.

  4. That is the most jackassed thing I’ve ever heard of. Your ex-boss FTL.

  5. I know. It’s just jackassery. And job hunting is the suck!!

    I have some leaf beads, but I think I only have four of the iridescent ones left. I’ll send you some pics tonight, okay?

  6. Thank you! I really just wanted sympathy. 🙂

  7. *shakes fist at universe* I’m sure it’ll all work out for the best, but I want to not have to live through the miserable jobless middle time, ya know?



  10. Yeah, that really does sound unbelievably frustrating.

  11. Okay! That sounds good. I’m willing to be flexible on the design, I just want dangling leaves. *grin* It was SO pretty and green and spring-timey.

    Job hunting IS the suck. I’ve sent my resume to two headhunting places in TN as of last night, so we’ll see what happens, but the whole idea of going through it again just makes me want to crawl back into bed and die. However, it sounds like you’re better off without that sucky place. Ugh. And I bet you’ll find something much nicer.
