New pic

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

I’ve been lurking around a couple of men’s longhair boards lately and decided it was time to join them officially. This requires a pic proving the length of one’s locks. My sponsor still hasn’t asked for his digicam back, so I propped it on the back of the couch, aimed it in the general direction […]

And in other news…

I found out the position at the Appellate Court library is one of the most sought-after postions to come along in recent memory within library community. Apparently, a lot of actual librarians are applying for the position, even though it’s a giant step backwards to be a circulation clerk. I expected competition to be fierce, […]

Department of General Mayhem and Comic Relief

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

We needed a name for my little hidey-hole at Presbytery. I was in the middle of surgery on an old PC we found in the attic on Tuesday when Susan, the Resource Center director, wandered in to find PC stuff all over her table. “What’s this?” she asked. “General mayhem.” She laughed. “And comic relief,” […]

Next step

Wednesday was Staff Appreciation Day at the library. Although it’s normally one of my days off, I went in at noontime in order to be appreciated. There were six pizzas, a veggie tray, chips, several varieties of cookies, and assorted soft drinks laid-out in the Children’s Room. Along with this year’s collection of grab bag […]

I want candy

Friday, April 15th, 2005

I make sure I go to The Corner Store on Thursday nights. There’s a guy who works there who’s kinda interesting. He works more than just Thursday nights, but that’s the only part of his schedule I can remember. At first I thought he was just friendly. Then I thought it was because he’s a […]

Things you don’t see every day

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

I was out on the fire-escape having a smoke when I heard a scraping noise behind me. This man was pushing his kangaroo out into the alley to paint it. Apparently the city is doing another one of those animals on parade things this year.

One disaster averted, three to go

The Presbytery is my oldest, most loyal and most important client. They literally pay my rent. Half-a-large is electronically dumped into my business account on the last day of the month. I transfer it to my personal account on the first and write the rent check on the second. My performance on the Presbytery site […]

Cleaning house—part 1

Sunday, April 10th, 2005

Despite the nice weather this week, every day I felt lower and lower. Yesterday I rarely left the couch. I started considering treatment options. Inpatient? Partial hospitalization? See my shrinks? I awoke this morning after the best sleep I’ve had in weeks. I spent a long while lying in bedtrying to figure out what time […]

Looky look

Friday, April 8th, 2005

The new look is due to a new default theme with WordPress 1.5, not due to any tinkering on my part. Although I did change the color of the header background graphic. Someday I just might get around to making it look like the old Scenic Route. My sponsor lent me his shiny new Canon […]

Short goodbyes are best

Sunday, April 3rd, 2005

“Where are you?” asks CBC. “Home. Where else would I be in the middle of a rainy Sunday afternoon? Where are you?” “Pearl Street. I had to drop off some stuff for [the gay couple who helped her move]. You gonna be home?” “Yeah.” “I’ll be there in ten minutes. Should I come up?” I […]
