Sorry about falling off the planet again. My gravity boots must be malfunctioning.

So...yeah...new job is awesome. I am loving my work and the people I work with. I had to work from home last week due to the BART strike...but that's been at least postponed until August.

That cold I caught the first week was killer. Nearly three weeks before the cough went away. But away it did finally go.

We are embarking on insanity. On tuesday I decided to go to Tucson for the long weekend to see my [livejournal.com profile] darling_lisa and my dad. Kidnapped my niece and took her with me. We drove down to Tombstone and Bisbee on Friday and drove up Mt Lemon on Saturday after having lunch with my father.

Cut for rambling about the travel to come )

I'm tired just thinking about it.


What else?

Um. Let's see. I'm in training again this week.

And my old job has managed to continue to fuck me over. I was supposed to get my severance check on Friday, delivered via fedex to my new work office. The idiot in payroll didn't put my company name or the suite number on the check, so fedex couldn't deliver it. Hopefully, after calling them, it will be redelivered this morning.

In other news, it was nice to sleep in my own bed last night and cuddle my kitties.

And now, for a random list of random:

1) the view out my window in this training room is nice.
2) my elbow and wrist hurt
3) There is a book next to me with pictures of food on the cover. It is making me hungry.
4) My tea is cold
5) My tummy hasn't been completely happy at all since like Wednesday
6) I love the integration of my voice/email systems at work.
7) This coffee is awful
8) Boobies!
9) Shenanigans!
10) And my hat!

I REALLY want this job, despite the fact that it would involve a rather lengthy commute into the city.

It is a content development position for a company that does business intelligence stuff. It would combine my writing skills and my data analysis skills into a position that would offer me 80K/year.

It IS in San Francisco, but is literally a block away from the BART station, so public transportation is totally an option.

I just had a phone interview with the hiring manager and I think it went very well. She's going to have me come in next week to meet the team and I need to come up with a writing/presentation sample between now and then. I just have to figure out what to write.

I REALLY, REALLY would love to get this job. Inviting all positive thoughts/prayers/mojo, etc.

I didn't mean to fall off the map like that.

So much going on.

You would think not working would mean I'd have more time.

Not so much.

I spent most of last week cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc. It was nice and relaxing. The weekend was spent in wine country. It was a good weekend. Well, aside from turning my ankle late in the day on Saturday. It's better already.

Monday I spent part of the day revising my resume and uploading it to Monster. I applied to five jobs. Today I got a phone call, tomorrow I have an interview. Tech Writing job with a minimum 1 year contract. It could be I'm working before I'm officially unemployed.

In other news, I have completely taken leave of my senses.... )

Anyway. I think tonight might be a good night to open one of those bottles of wine I bought this weekend and kick back.

My interview is tomorrow at 2pm my time...if you'd send up some energy/thoughts around that time.

For the third day in a row, I woke up with a headache. Right now the only thing that has me functional is my TENS unit working the spot just under my neck, and heavy doses of BOTH Tylenol and Ibuprofen.

Today I am working on this damn manual that has a ridiculous deadline. My frustration level is very close to "fuck it all and go home".

And, the coworker that went out on medical a few months ago (the one who was so sick and losing her shit mentally) is due back to work today, and they're moving her close to where I sit and I'm dreading it so very much. I do not want to get dragged back into her drama. I don't want to know about her family and her issues and all of that. I don't want to gossip about all the crap she's missed.

I want to hide in my cube and ignore the world exists and try to get this work done.


Okay. Now that I've got THAT out of my system...

1) What is one thing you look forward to every day?
2) What is one thing you dread?
3) What do you regret?
4) What do you fear?
5) What do you want?
6) What do you need?
7) What do you think about at night before you fall asleep?
