I started a new one of these to keep track of all the stupid shit I make up, usually when I’m groggy. http://imaginarybullshit.tumblr.com/
Real True Stories of Stultifying Actualness
So it’s been a tumultuous couple of weeks working for the old census. My crew leader got demoted to a mere assistant crew leader, which I thought was dumb because she was obviously the nicest person working there. Nicer even than Nice Guy perhaps. I knew for sure that I liked her forever when I was at a meeting and Awful Woman was wheedling away about some kind of nonsense that upset her and...
I work two jobs now and it is really, really hard to want to sit down and use what little free time I have to blog. But at some point I will. This is not that point. This is the point where I say I haven’t abandoned the blog but actually I have to leave right now and go do some more censussing so I can have all the dollars.
Return of the Blog
Heyyyyy, look at me. I’m blogging. I assure you I haven’t neglected this thing for any reason other than being too ding dang busy. I’m trying to get a second job that will actually last more than two months. The whole process involves a lot of ferrying paperwork across town and getting tested for TB and carpal tunnel and such. Turns out, I totally don’t even have any...

There was terrible traffic on the way back and I had a million tiny freak-outs and showed up twenty minutes late. As far as I can tell I didn’t miss anything that...
Everything is ridiculous forever
So yesterday was the first “real” day of training. It was largely uneventful. I had to drive on the highway to get there which super stressed me out seeing as for about the past eight years I’ve only had to drive when I’m at home visiting my parents. Until recently I probably hadn’t driven since some time in 2006. Despite ridiculously unclear highway signage I managed to find the...
Un Trabajo Que Cuenta!
After nearly two months of unemployment, days upon days of not getting in the shower as early as I had planned, I am mostly working again. Not that I’ve done any actual work yet. I’m employed by the 2010 census, a job that should last about two months. Friday was my first day of training. Really all I was trained in was how many hours to work and how to get paid. The latter is...
