Today I had my first day working the register at my new job. You see, I was hired on the spot last Wednesday when I went in to fill out an application in my second round of job searching at the Mall. I came in for 6.5 hours last Thursday, to do a training and to help move things in the store before Inventory. My manager said shi would call Monday and let me know my hours, since I'm full-time.
Well, Friday I stayed home, and breathed in the fact that I no longer needed to spend my days searching for a job, I have one. It's a really lovely feeling. Except, it was freezing cold in my house. Like, only 60 degrees. Frigid, really.
Raven just brought up a huge bowl of macaroni and cheese, and pomegranate seeds. Yum.
Saturday, Raven and I looked for an apartment for hir. See, shi's been staying here for the last two months, until shi could save up enough for hir own place. Now it seems that I have to move, and so shi wants a place big enough so I can stay with hir until I can get onto my feet. It's been complicated. So, we've been looking for a place.
Because I can't live here, where the thermostat gets held at 55 degrees all day.
Sunday, we went to a friend's for ice cream cake and movies (we didn't watch any, but we did watch Elvira Kurt). It was a lovely time, and we had birthday pizza, and I got 100 colored pencils, which I promptly took from their holding box and color-organized, in all the colors of the homo rainbow ... Yes, it was a wonderful thing. Both dog and cat wanted to assist. It was discovered that I did not own a coloring book (to go with my colored pencils), so I was given one to assay the trouble of having 100 colored pencils, and nothing to color.
Today, I got to work for another 6 or so hours, and then Raven picked me up to go look at other apartments, then we came back to the house, and I made left-over pizza for dinner (first thing I ate all day), and now we're watching V For Vendetta and trying to stay warm. There might need to be a huddle later, to generate body heat to share. It's freezing!
It is so cold, there is snow inside my window.
