And want to go commit acts of senseless violence and destruction really, really badly.

Normally, the fact that I'm renting this place furnished and with utilities included (for a fucking boatload of cash, but that's neither here nor there) is fairly convenient.

Except, of course, when Pepco (according to my landlady, in Cali-freakin-fornia) changes their automated billng system. In such a way (again, according to my landlady, who isn't high on my list of favorite things at the moment) that her automated PAYING system, well, doesn't. So that Pepco comes out and shuts off the power. Which, of course, inconveniences her not one fucking BIT, but sort of leaves me here sitting in the dark venting and wondering how long the various batteries in the various electronic devices will last.

God, I so hate my life right now. . . I need a new place to live, and a new job, and yeah, a new life, pretty freaking STAT.

I'm so sorry! If there's anything I can do, please let me know!

And if you decide you want to come soak your head somewhere quiet (for some definition of quiet) just let me know when.

If I could get out of here, I would be on my way to Boston, to watch the closing of the OVO Cirque show. Or possibly Pennsylvania, to take one of the weeklong weaving classes up there.

I'd love to spend a week at home, cleaning up, sleeping, and getting craft stuff done, but not in the works right now (certainly not without power).

Hmm...sounds like you at least need a new landlady.
So, I hear that a .357 can solve lots of problems...but that's also neither here nor there. ;)

What's the deal on the job?

So... you actively looking and applying? Got a headhunter on it? Though headhunters aren't too useful for government jobs, which is where I bet you'll end up.

I hope so too! The cat is hiding under the bed, but it's been the coolest weather in months yesterday and this morning, so I'm hoping she'll be all right without air conditioning.
