Good stuff happens in 3′s right? I’m going to say that today.
The good things are:
This is neat because I can attach it to a chicken, a cat or…my kid. I plan to attach it to my daughter for Kumoricon. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Kumoricon is an anime convention held in Portland, Oregon on Labor day weekend. This serves a dual purpose for us – it gives us something really cool to do just before school starts again, and gets us out of going to the family gathering that same weekend. Sounds mean, but given the options, I’ll pick hundreds of oddly-dressed stranger-geeks over too many family members.
2. I did a survey thing and got a $60 gift card for Amazon – for real. Awesome because it got me a new coffee cup warmer, egg/fruit slicer and a 15ft HDMI cable (perfect for watching downloaded anime on the 42″ flatscreen the roommate got recently), as well as some seatbelt webbing and tights for my kid’s Kumo cosplay. She’s going as Dita from Chobits – and has a friend going as Dita’s partner. Kinda cool.
These are all good things. Hot coffee, sliced eggs, happy child. Who could ask for more?
This brings me to:
3. I got a job.
At least, that’s what I hope to be saying in a few days. I’m going in for an interview tomorrow, sadly I was half asleep when they called so I’m not sure what location or what position, only that I need to be there. It’s at St. Vincent de Paul, where they have an actual job of being the librarian. That’s what I applied for, hoping that’s what they want to talk to me about. They just opened a new location that’s very close by, so…
Anyway, it’s like a dream job until I figure out what my dream job would be. Sorting and shelving books in a thrift store? YES. Especially one the size of the St. Vinnie’s around here. My mom actually has that job in another town, and loves it. Hard work, but she loves it. She actually recommended it to me, and I was able to use her as a reference. So, cross fingers and keep them crossed for…2-3 days?
Anyway. Those are my 2/3 shiny things for this month.
