I've been working seasonal retail at a neighborhood book shop for the last 2 months, and it will come to an end on January 1st.
I have to admit that one of the few bright sides of this has been the perverse pleasure I derive from greeting my law school professors with "Here I am, putting my [school name] law degree to good use. How's life on the hill?"

I'm a confirmed atheist, but the way I feel is best describes with "Let go and let God."

1 pint of forsen berries + almost 1 glass of whisky + immersion blender = boozy smoothie.

I am very pleased.

So apparently my partner is convinced that mis Russian prof knows my first language better than I do, and I am not getting the silent treatment for daring to assert that she was wrong in claiming that there is no plural form of занавескa, which is bullshit. The plural is занавески, it has never gone out of use and is listed as such in the Oxford. But because his cheapo dictionary and the prof say otherwise I am being disrespectful by asserting the truth.

I dont even know how to begin dealing with this.

When wondering about the origin of a late October fruit fly infestation, consider the far left cornet of the pantry. There just may be a completely liquefied bag of rotten onions back there.

I rarely do this, but a good friend of mine is a co-owner of an awesome comic book shop in Massachusetts.
The economy is shit, and they fell on really hard times.
In order to avoid closing, they've started a fundraiser and there's some pretty sweet stuff on offer.

Here's the link http://www.gofundme.com/4t5tbo

Please help them out if you can, and boost the signal.

What now?

Today I was sworn in and officially became an attorney.
There were lofty speeches and an auditorium full of other newly minted lawyers.
People were talking about how happy they were, and what a big occasion it is.

I feel none of that.
Instead of an unemployed law graduate I am now an unemployed attorney.
I still have a dwindling supply of money, no job and nothing on the horizon.

I should be celebrating, but all I feel is depressed.

damn it

Fuck the GOP.
Seriously.
Fuck them with that rusty pineapple that gets up Hitler's arse in Little Nicky.

They're holding the country hostage because they lost every battle over the Affordable Care Act.
They lost the in the legislature, they lost the presidential election, they lost in the courts. So now they've shut down the government.

Fuck them.
This is economic terrorism.
We don't negotiate with terrorists.

I was so sure I'd failed that I'm still trying to wrap my mind around having passed.

Was just talking to R, and it look like since buying Tumblr, Yahoo has set about fucking it up. Specifically, not communicating with users, and in a very shady looking move inserting ads disguised as posts directly into people's dash...

Smells like the shit that went down when 6Apart bought LJ...

There are days you thank the universe your MiL is not crazy.
And then there are days you learn that you share a fandom with her.

Shannon Larratt died today.

For those outside the body mod community, he was probably nothing more than a hacker and artist.
For people in the community, Shannon was a father figure of sorts. He founded BME in the early nineties, and by the time I was a teenager exploring body mod, Shannon and BME were there to welcome me into a community.
Shannon had been suffering from Tubular Aggregate Myopathy for the last 3 years at least, and I am glad he is free from the pain.
That said, we've lost a god man today. These are his last words.

So, Brooklyn College has signed on as a co-sponsor of a pro BDS event and is now taking the heat for it. The situation is not being handled well. My personal take is that it's the height of chutzpah for a group aiming to silence Israeli academics as a part of their BDS campaign to claim a violation of academic freedom in response to criticism.

It has already had the effect ( perhaps intended) or silencing and alienating Jewish students on campus.

So may taking a class on 9/11 and terrorism wasn't the best of ideas.
Sitting in class right now and am triggered up the wazoo.

I feel like unreconstructed death.
The fever broke for a bit around midnight, and R and I shared a sparkling cider toast which was lovely.
Now though I'm congested as all hell, the Sudafed ain't working, the chills and headache are back to boot. I think I may have to miss work tomorrow, despite how we can't afford the loss of income.

In short being sick sucks .

Oh dear

On the last day of old year, my outlaws gave to me
A flu and a lack of will to live.
Otherwise the season is going well.
Xmas was fab, with the exception of flu getting. And we got a potted xmas tree, so it can grow with us.

Now I'm in bed with an electric blanket and a cat, while R cooks.
