Dear Flist,

Anyone know how I can find a part time job in one of the busiest cities in the world, with only the possibility to work nights and weekends, in one week? CAN IT BE DONE?!?!?




Oh, who am I kidding?

For Kathleen, who doesn't like Russian authors, specifically Dostoevsky...

“I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world’s finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, of all the blood that they’ve shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

See? He's Russian, but he's an optimist at heart... After lots of suffering...

I live! And look! I can prove it! A book meme! *dances*

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. Tag five other people to do the same.

"'Then, five-and-seventy years ago, I was the youngster whose head they held over this selfsame basin; that was in the dining-room too, and the minister spoke the very same words that were spoken when you and your father were baptized, and the clear, warm water flowed over my head precisely the same way - there wasn't much more hair than there is now - and fell into this golden bowl just as it did over yours.'

The little one looked up at Grandfather's narrow grey head, bending over the basin as it had in the time he described. A familiar feeling pervaded the child: a strange, dreamy, troubling sense: of change in the midst of duration, of time as both flowing and persisting, of recurrence in continuity - these were sensations he had felt before on the like occasion, and both expected and longed for again, whenever the heirloom was displayed." - The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann.

What's that? The Germans like really long sentences? You don't say... *grin*

This is the book I should be reading instead of doing silly memes... *sigh*

*returns to the grindstone*

Pushing Daisies. It... *whimper*

The Facts Are These.

On the plus side, comics! And maybe a movie! But... No more weekly dose of clever and cuteness! And it ends on a cliffhanger!

I suppose I would be taking this better if I hadn't heard this news after watching an episode as awesome as "Oh Oh Oh... It's Magic," but this latest installment just confirmed that this show is the best thing since sliced... pie.

*lip wibbles dangerously*

What will I do without my pie-maker?!?!

*goes into mourning*

I just watched his speech, and I think it is summed up nicely by this yoinked pic...

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!

Guys, I'm ecstatic right now.

I'm not dead yet! *dances*

I did, however, show up for work two hours early because no one told me the hours are different on the weekends. Myranda = not pleased. If it wasn't such an easy job (and if the consumers I've worked with hadn't been as awesome as they are) I would be very tempted to stomp about and give people a hard time and/or quit. Between them cheating me out of overtime and being an uninformed monkey to the company's whims, I'm getting a wee bit impatient. But, I'm learning that virtue thing, so I might as well suck it up. I'm no worse for ware, after all!

Also worthy of note: The intrawebs no longer work at the consumer's house, so no more midnight updates (woe).

All that established (and in spite of my griping), both of my jobs seem to be going fairly well. I feel a wee bit useless at the Water Boards and I don't really do much with On My Own... But I'm pretty content and incredibly busy, so no harm done!

In other news, the "Doctor Who" finale sort of killed my soul (and we'll leave it at that for now), although I'm not nearly as fatalistic as many others in fandom are. Still though... Sad Myranda.

And, between shifts, I've watched all of "Firefly" which is, quite frankly, freaking awesome. I can't believe FOX was such a dumbass and canceled it. Seriously some great storytelling and what do they do? Get rid of it. *headstrike*

Hope everyone's having a great summer, and that I manage to get some good hanging-out time penciled in before I have to head off again! I haven't seen some of you lot for far too long!
