It’s not really any particular milestone, but I always forget to check that counter. Now we know!
The last couple days have been horribly, absurdly cold. 17 degrees at night and 35 during the day, if you’re lucky. Normally we try to avoid using the heaters, but even Kevin agrees that we need them right now. Apparently next week, things should return to normal – meaning 40s and raining – but I keep hoping it’ll snow.
I’ve gone to a couple more job interviews, both for temp positions in an office setting, which I would really enjoy. Video Store Job isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I don’t intend to keep it for very long. I’m hoping I’ll get an offer on these other positions, and then I’ll get to sequester myself behind a desk and sort through files and not worry about impressing customers.
And while I do appreciate the fact that Video Store Job is drama-free, I was sort of hoping that it would produce some entertaining stories. So far, though, things have been pretty quiet. My coworkers are nice, if a little eclectic, and I haven’t had to deal with any crazy customers yet. I will bide my time.
Outside work, things are still pretty quiet. I’m still working on getting the office organized, but I finally put up my bulletin board, along with a few drawings and some cool fashion shoots I tore out of “Vogue.” I’m beginning to realize that this room and I are destined for each other, because the heater mystically turns itself on, even though the controls say it’s off. I won’t complain until the heating bill comes.
We’ve also been putting up some decorations, and we finally got a Christmas tree!
This involved a truly epic battle with the tree stand we inherited, including a visit to the hardware store to get the right parts to hold the bolts in place. But it’s upright, and lighted, and my childhood ornaments are on it, and the cat hasn’t tried to climb it or anything.
