Applied for unemployment and learned that with some part-time teaching and some contract work I’ve already arranged to do, we can live pretty normally and probably even spend the first half of the summer at the beach while I look for a job with people who at least try to seem sane and do not operate out of an entirely imaginary office for a client who does not pay them.
Played 2 hours of Wii Sports with the kidlet, am now aching all over and am relatively sure that home-schooling would result in a homicide. Good to know as I think through where he’s going to be next year.
Successfully ducked Neldon, Tamara and Heather – all recruiters – who believe they have found the perfect job for me. I am fairly certain they have not. I am not moving to Utah. I am not working at clown college. BTDT.
Had a phone interview with a company that was a client for a job I think I would like. I could commute to Baltimore, right?
Watched Zero Dark Thirty on demand. Twice.
Had a bag of M&M Raspberry chocolates and a glass of white wine for dinner.
Spent 2 hours doing some contract copyediting and then felt really guilty because I probably earned more doing that than the guy on the phone at unemployment earned all day.
Yeah, I gotta step up the search. This is going to be intolerably boring after about 3 days.
