It's winter here, so I get to sit inside my lovely warm office all day. It takes a while to heat up because we have mega high ceilings, but we have two space heaters and the airconditioning on hot and it finally gets nice and warm.

There is a patisserie next door to work and they are lovely and I don't have to even tell them what I want anymore. I love being a regular.

My Mum is my boss, so I guess I get to hang out with my Mum at work all day!

The job itself is pretty awesome, I get to design advertising for this company (real estate) and make sure things get to the newspapers on time and I have internet and I can have music on at work.

Also, it's less than 10minutes drive from home.

Um, one of the guys I work with is going on vacation tomorrow, and my birthday is next week, so he's going to bring me a birthday present tomorrow. :)

At work today other teams were trying to poach me to come work on their project (it's a biggish company where there are lots of separate teams of people working on different projects simultaneously.)  That was pretty cool.

Oh I guess I should mention that I'm at a different job from the last time I posted in this thread.  I'm making almost double what I made at my last job, so that's pretty cool too, although this is a short term contract so in a month I may very well be jobless, and that part's not so cool.

This is a positive?

So I'm applying to my first job at Einstein Bagel. The hours are shit but I don't mind the morning shift. I'll be spending monday, tuesday, and depending on how much I drink this week, a wednesday from 5 to 11 in the morning. Any advice?

I am doing a "What's On" column to help out the events listing section of the paper and people keep trying to bribe me with free tickets to stuff. It's pretty awesome.

With cake ownership set to C and cake consumption set to K, then C + K = 0.  So indeed as one consumes a cake, one simultaneously deprives oneself of cake ownership.

I <3 einstein bagels. My gf and I would always go there for breakfast during college, bacon egg and cheese on an asiago cheese bagel. mmm. their orange juice is pretty swell too.

Depending on your location, get ready to see a lot of attractive people starting their mornings.

Nah, never taught there, nor have I quit any of my teaching jobs.  Those all ended at the end of the semester naturally (hoping to pick up classes in the fall again,) the job I left was a freelance game programming gig.

Also, your av fooled me!
