here's a nice big update on everything that's happened in the past couple weeks.

Christmas: spent with my family. Went to the 11pm service at St. Matthew's, which is always nice. Unfortunately, in the crowd, I didn't get to see everybody I would have liked to. Adam made me feel inferior in my gift-giving with his generosity, but hey. He has a steady job that pays way more than mine. Plus, he got a raise recently. At least everybody seems to have liked what I gave them. Only downside to the day was Grandma getting a flat tire a mile from my parents' house. She decided to just drive the rest of the way (including several stop signs and speed bumps) on the rim rather than trying to get help. I think she finally realized how useful a cell phone can be. Needless to say, she was pretty shook up by the whole thing, and thus not the greatest of company, but I can't really blame her for that. I personally received several things I had long been hoping for, such as the complete Monty Python's Flying Circus, Batman:The Dark Knight Returns, and High Ruhlain, the latest Redwall book. Also several other books that I am unlikely to have the time to read soon. Oh well. Add them to the ever-growing pile that I'll get to eventually. Like, in 45 years when I retire.

New Year's: Drove up to New Jersey on Friday the 30th to spend New Year's with Jess at her Mom's place. IT was fun and relaxing. I watched 15 straight hours of the Twilight Zone on Sci-Fi.

And now: Jess came back with me to Fairfax, and we've been sending a good deal of time together. I feel bad leaving her at home while I go to work, but it's unavoidable, I'm afraid. Will be taking her back home this weekend, as she needs to go back to Allegheny. I've watched more Starsky and Hutch than I ever thought I would in my natural lifetime.

Work: So, things have been afoot at work as well. After a stagnant week between Christmas and the new year, things are picking up again. Greg has been "let go," and while it saddens me, it's ultimately none of my business as to why. Also, I've been informed that the same fate is due for me any day now. This isn't that surprising, as my posistion was always meant to be temporary. Problem being, I have no job to go to after this, and no idea when I'm going to need one by. Moving back in with my parents is looking more and more financially appealing these days. Still haven't heard back from the AZA, where I put in an application a month ago. Finally got ahold of a person at their office, and was told they don't take calls about jobs. So I just have to sit here and wonder whether I'm even being considered or not. Bah.
