I love my new job

Not just because I share an office — like a real one, with walls and doors and a whole wall of gorgeous, ceiling-high windows — but that's what keeps popping up every time I think about it. An office. For the copy editors. Dude. Nobody gives copy editors offices in this biz!

Commuting by bus also rules, including my morning sprint through the skyway with Puck. (He doesn't consider it a sprint, but my cardiovascular system would beg to differ.)

This is the first real down-time I've had, but I'm enjoying being busy after the long, long dry spell at the other job. I think the best part about being here though (office aside — oh, and did I mention one of my walls is purple?), is that everyone else seems happy to be here too. It's a really positive vibe. People like it here. Takes some getting used to, but it's neat.

I'm feeling very, very lucky.

New job changes

I've started clearing out my cube at work. Not much to do there, really. I haven't accumulated much even though I've been here eight years.

Found the place where I'm going to donate my car. Since Puck and I will both be taking the bus to work now, we're going to try being a one-car household for a while.

Still need to do some serious clothes-shopping. Yuck.

People keep coming by to talk to me, which is kinda weird.

But yay — in just over an hour, I'm outta here for the weekend and we're going to visit Ms. Huis & Mr. Kluges! Hooray!

I win!

Apparently all that was needed was for me to yell in my blog about how the new company had to hire me. 'Cuz they just did. YAY!

...yet I don't use my Twitter account

Not a fan of Starbucks coffee, but their pumpkin lattes are infinitely superior to all other pumpkin lattes and may be a tool of the devil.

The lake in early October with almost no other tourists is a wonderful thing.

Dear other company: HIRE ME ALREADY! SHEESH!

When am I going to get around to planting the nearly 200 bulbs I've purchased? And where? Eep.

Shut up, Sarah Palin.

Fire and melty metal this weekend! Crazy yay!

How long will it be before I can walk through the grocery store without sniffling every time I pass Newman's Own products?

Dear self: You don't actually hibernate and you live in controlled environments. Stop trying to store up winter fat.
