Friday Night Has Come

Which means Doctor Who is tomorrow. *iz excited*

Job news was at least not horrible -- we get our "employee selection guides" on Monday, which is a form we have to fill out to keep our jobs. Since our unit is down to about eight people and they will need 54 imaging employees (50 regular, 4 specialists), we assume all of us have jobs no matter what we write in our ESGs. HOWEVER, since I'll be trying for one of the 4 specialist positions, I have to just hope I can get the bump up -- but I'll be happy enough with a plain lateral move. They'll at least TELL us by May 12, I hope.

More of the Cultural Center Garden:

I feel often that I should read A Game of Thrones and the rest of the series, but firstly I'd have to find all of Barb's copies, and secondly move it to the very top of a stack of, um, ten or so books I deliberately set aside "to read next."

Surrounded by a wrought-iron gate:

I must make scones tomorrow morning, because we have jam to taste.


And what a good way to watch Doctor Who (even in America), than with scones and jam?

So far, I have to say that while I don't usually do much (anything) with Facebook, it has, for me, been pretty good -- I've gotten in touch with a lot of people I actually WANTED to hear from again, and recently found an old roommate from college I've wanted to touch bases with again. Nifty.

My scones are cooling even as we speak, and my mouth is all watering waiting to taste! :)

Doctor Who is today now! [beams]

YAY, Doctor Who Day! :D

I have to say, I was wary of Facebook at first, but it's become the lifeline to friends that are out of town, and has allowed me to re-become friends with people I hadn't seen since high school. I recently got together with a friend I've known since 1st grade, and that was all due to us getting in contact via FB. Damn Zuckerburg and his genius.

I hope all goes well with the job thing. I know it's anxiety-provoking when jobs are up in the air.

You need fish fingers and custard!! I might just be eating the fish fingers tonight, however, there will be no custard because that just doesn't sound appealing. I really need some Eleven icons...

I don't care for the games and all the other crap that comes with FB, but yes to getting in touch with people I haven't seen in 20+ years. It was fun with this guy, too, since he didn't actually have any pictures of himself on his page (he's an anime editor/translator in Japan now and everything on his page is art from that), but I looked at his profile, saw he lived in both Upstate New York and Tucson, which seemed a bit of a coincidence if he WASN'T my old roomie, and I posted on his wall. Yep!

The only way I could have fish fingers is if I made them myself with very light breading and a real fillet of something, because Barb does not like fish fingers! (Or custard, for that matter.)

So it's win-win bigger with the job. That's excellent! And I love the photos.

Pretty much, for people in my position (I still have "The Worries," but I think they're mostly just my own "I suck" erroneous concerns...).

glad you found some of your old friend on FB

good luck with the job stuff

I LOVE that gate

I tried Game of Thrones. I wasn't sure I was up to an unfinished series where each book is 500 pages long. I tried it. Didn't like it. I found the beginning sort of predictable and misogynistic but given the people recommending it to me and their sensitivity to that sort of thing it probably didn't continue long on the hard on women path. I might try it again. I wouldn't mind seeing it on HBO. I even had that free for a month but can't remember when the thing is on

Sometimes FB is a good thing.

Isn't it pretty? It's really a lovely little garden, and it has a lot of information about the regions of China each area is emulating. (Although the plants are limited to what will grow here...)

Game of Thrones is recommended by people I trust and admire, so I figure I'll give it a try.

And the last book has just hit the editor (by all accounts, LONG anticipated), according to nutmeg3's journal...

I wouldn't mind seeing that garden some day.

Like I said, maybe over the summer I'll try again. Yeah I've heard people whining about the last book's long delay

Good luck with the job.

the very top of a stack of, um, ten or so books I deliberately set aside "to read next."

If only mine were that infinitesimally tiny.

Seriously. I was trying to find my favorite Patricia MicKillip book to take to NorWesCon to get signed, and I actually counted one of the four piles near the bed that are my "read next."


And it's only one of four piles.

Oh, dear...

Read carefully, there: I DELIBERATELY set aside. That's not counting the dozens and dozens and DOZENS that are already shelved that I still need to read! I did this in order to make some headway in the piles of piles! :)

I did read carefully. These are only my deliberately set asides, too. Not counting who knows how many more shelved that I still need to read.

Juli-sans-e has us beat. Here goal from year-to-year for some time now is to try to keep the deliberately set aside batch to under 500...
