"A real carnage rodeo."

Richard Kadrey, Aloha from Hell


In other news, I'm still looking for work. I was actually offered a job as an emergency operator but they specifically wanted to cover overnights and weekends, and if you screw that job up, people die. Long story short, if you're losing sleep over a job before you start, it's most likely not the job for you.

I have some causal work coming up through a few sources, but things are starting to get a bit tight.

"She was almost sick with relief." -- _Red Country_, Joe Abercrombie.

I'm not sure how to take that.

Yeah, I knew doing this at work would end badly...

"It involved scraping cells from the cervix with a curved glass pipette and examining them under a microscope for pre-cancerous changes that TeLinde and a few others had developed a few years earlier."

I knew this wouldn't be good when I realised the closest book to me right now is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. All things considered, it could have been much worse...

"The years have brought us many different minifigs, from astronauts and cowboys to helicopter pilots and robots, wizards and witches, and everything in between."

I guess there's either something special happening at a cosplay event or there's one long year of roleplay ahead. lol.

Hope the job hunt improves soon.

"French, Latin, and Spanish language, and mathematics placement tests are also given at this time."

Well, that explains a lot.
