Yep. I am.

Employed, that is.



Lots of changes have occured this week at Diva Central. Paul and I both got new jobs. In the same place. How cool is that? Of course, we'll be working opposite shifts because well, while Abby assures us that she can "control" her two younger siblings, we're just not all that comfortable with leaving our 10 year old in charge and frankly, DHS isn't either. We're okay with the oppositeness of the shift thing. I'm only working part-time and on the days we both work, our paths will cross in the drive-way. This may help us to avoid a lot of fights. Unless we resort to leaving nasty notes to each other in the break room...

The hope is that he'll get to work the day shift (we hear he will) and then I'll take the swing shift, working abbreviated shifts from 6 to midnight a few nights a week. He's full time and I'm part time. He's working Security and I'm a glorified computer geek with a walkie and an earbud. I say "to-ma-toe" and he says "'mater". I say "po-ta-toe" and he says "tater".

Wish I could tell you where we're working, but that Nondisclosure Agreement we signed kind of has us by the cajones, ya know. I will tell you that it is in a Native American gaming establishment, though. It's up to you to figure out which one. Gamble often, gamble much in search of us, my friends. Those of you who are local should be able to find us fairly easily. And if you're not local, well, then I guess it kind of really doesn't matter which one because you're not like, all here and stuff, huh?


I am smack dab in the middle of furiously writing two papers for Comp II and have one for History and one for Psych to write as well, but to those of you who are interested in the writing challenge, I am going to tackle setting that up over Spring Break. In fact, before today is over, I will post the list of words for the first challenge here on this blog. You can write your stories this week while I try to pull my life together into some semblance of sanity and we'll start posting stories late in the week, week after next.

Got it?
Get ready!
Stay tuned!

Congratulations on the new job! I hope you can have a little fun while doing all the official, worky, business-type stuff.

When do you start?

We....the people
