My friends, the unthinkable has happened and I am once again gainfully employed! I couldn't be happier. A long period of loneliness and couch-potato-ness comes to an end, and now I shall once again be a hard-working, disposable-income earning Special K of days gone by. I'm going to be working at the local university, as a "Training Specialist". I can't thank my good friend DeBordian Perruque enough, because he hipped me to the opening, then very kindly told glorious tales of my ability to multi-task, how well I work with others, and of my striking penmanship.
Me, on the way to my interview

Had a great weekend, celebrating my new job with friends, celebrating the b-day of the very sweet Sweethealoha, and today, mucking about in the garden, raking and rejoicing over the tiny buds that are finally sprouting up. The weather in Chicago was absolutely amazing this weekend, and everyone (including us) has been going crazy running around outside. Mostly we looked like grizzly bears emerging from our caves, grumpily rubbing the sleep from our eyes, unshaven, with twigs hanging in our hair, trying to find someone to feed us brunch at a sidewalk cafe.

Wanna see some cool stuff?

I am so happy for you. Is this part of your teaching job also?

I'm also glad all of the snow has melted and you can get outside to see your flowers budding.

You're going to rock this job, and J. is going to be so glad to have you working there.
Thanks for the shout-out, but no thanks are necessary, as I think it'll be a good fit for both of you. I certainly didn't tell them anything untrue.
The weekend was pretty fun, but I've been paying the price since. I can't believe we got 25 people in our tiny apartment!
