Wedded Bliss and Other Tales...

Laura and William, my sister and brother-in-law finally got back in yesterday, and I helped them move into their new apartment, which wasn't too difficult considering they have no furniture! I did offer to loan them my bed and sofa, which have been in my storage unit collecting dust, so that may kill two birds with one stone--they won't have to shell out for furniture right now and my stuff isn't moldering away. They also bought a new Toyota Yaris tonight and came by in it--pretty snazzy and futuristic. 

I applied for a job at a small, local hardware store today. Sounds crazy, I know, but it's close, the people who work there seem really laid back, and it doesn't involve worrying about whether the class I sub for is full of cool kids of future delinquents. They sounded like the job was mine if I wanted it, but it wouldn't start until mid-August, after the summer kids have gone back to school. In the meantime, I don't know if it is the right way to go. It is full-time, so it leaves less time for dissertation, but I need to make some extra money to pay off the exorbitant out-of-state tuition bill for Auburn I still have from last fall. I could also go the temp route. Sigh. Any insights?

I'd think the job would be terrific. It is hard to beat steady income, and I find that landing regular work after a period of more off-and-on labor does wonders for my mood.

No insights - that's just me!

Shalom, y'all!

The job doesn't seem like it will be overwhelming--mainly helping customers and restocking shelves. The hardest part would be occasionally helping customers load up 80-lb sacks of concrete. But hey, I'm still young, right?

Thanks for the advice!

Just think of the bulging biceps in your future! :)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs
Or torn biceps--ouch!

By the way, did you receive anything interesting in the mail lately?

Johnny Illuminati

Shalom, y'all!
