If she has to take the other job offer she has had, it will mean four hours a day on the road commuting. That's no good for her. It means she'll be a cranky butt when she gets home at night, which is no good for me either.
Remember that awful week when her cat died? It was immediately followed by all the politicians who had offered her jobs or job references, losing their elections. In fact, so many Democrats were voted out of office here, that her job prospects suddenly got cut by like 70%. She was networking like crazy and volunteering for campaigns...and then they all lost. That, combined with her cat dying, was really a shitty week for her.
This job she is looking at now is non-partisan and not dependent on any elections. Plus, she has been talking about this one as the job she wants. Since neither of my parents seem to be the least bit concerned that she is less than a month away from being unemployed, I thought I would show her some familial support here in LJ Land.
In WRITING NEWS - Last week I failed at meeting my goal for the first time since I started it, at the beginning of Nov. I only hit 2,143 words which means I came in about 1,400 words short, which is a pretty big shortage. It's the fic I am working on. It's like pulling teeth to get it out of me. The characters are so much fun to write when they are talking, but I end up deleting most of it, because it is moving too slow. Something needs to happen or it's just two guys talking to each other. Anyway, I think another 2,000 words will do it, but that's what I said 2,000 words ago, so...
Also, I need to be working on my Christmas stories that I want to write for people for Christmas. For at least one person, I have presents to go with the fic, so I better get it done.
And finally, in CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY NEWS - did y'all know that he is going to be in some wonderfully horrible ABC Family Christmas movie? It looks quite awful, as ABC Family Christmas Movies usually are, but look! Look, you guys! He's in scrubs!!!
Is he flirting with her over a dead body? Is he?!
Oh, ABC Family, just when I think I will never have reason to tune into you ever again, you give me The Chad in scrubs. I guess he finished writing his novel and went to get a real job. Or Jeff and Hilarie threatened to throw him out of the basement if he didn't start paying rent. Whichever or both.
That is all.
