Still searching!

I've applied to work for the Civilian branch of the U.S. Army, working with families of deployed soldiers.

I've applied to be a part-time bookkeeper for a man who owns an organic apple orchard 100 miles from Chicago (the work would be in town, including farmers' markets). I figure it would be a great way to see the business side of running an organic concern, including the certification and paperwork behind it all.

I'm doing some more babysitting this week, and the father of the twins had mentioned me to other locals who need help with some Help Desk thing they are doing, on the office end of it. The couple's main business is sourcing talent for voice-overs and yes, the main goal is to see whether I can get myself into THAT action.

I am supposed to temp at the local convention center this weekend, doing something having to do with driving clients to a particular booth. Still have no details other than that the place will be crawling with urologists. Sexy.

Today am meeting with the Horticulture department head at Harold Washington College to talk about my bright future in plants.

And I'm still in my pajamas.

Yah. You know what? It's probably a good idea not to put all your eggs into the same basket. This way, you got a variety of things to do, no single one takes over and if one falls through, you still got the other sixteen jobs. I'm still trying to cobble together a life where bees, shiatsu and collecting degrees will prove viable.

Oh, and I might have a general idea about what I might write my thesis about.

I'm wearing panty hose and a frilly collar right now.

I've been meaning to tell you: not a good look for you.
