hello and welcome to crissy alone at work on a friday afternoon. i have been left to my own devices. and to decide at what point (before 5) to leave. what is respectable but fun? perhaps 4?
i have a new & beautious flat screen monitor which makes my once-too thin desk seems loads bigger. brava brava.
read Away Laughing on a Fast Camel yesterday/this morning. vair vair amusant and marvy. so much better than that evil romp in idiot land that was the Gossip Girl book.
next up some ecw catch-up: Fiction for Lovers (not erotic fiction as it sounds) and maybe Pontypool Changes Everything by Tony Burgess (who i spoke to on the phone today), then perhaps Hoyden.
when one is left alone in the office, does one lock the door when you leave to go pee? this has always worried me. well, since that time that i was alone at bitcasters on a saturday and locked the office to go pee. then there was the out-on-a-day-pass man who peeked under the stall at me peeing. oh joyous day of violation! then running (with trousers up thank you) back to the office, i had to fiddle with the lock to escape the potentially violent criminal. of course, he was neither violent nor a criminal (of a major degree) but still. frightening. to lock or not to lock. i think the answer is to hold one’s pee until 4 pm. 39 minutes. that i can do.
in other news, i like hockey poetry. well not all (i ‘ve only read one collection). this week i had the at first daunting task of copyediting a book of poetry about hockey. i don’t read poetry; i don’t play hockey. i do know how to use a dictionary though and thankfully the canadian oxford includes many a hockey term. but the poems were very accessible and moving even w/ my utter lack of hockey-know-how.
in deutschland news. i could possibly move there immediately to work for an animation company (english language) with laura dundas of nelvana days. well, i don’t have a job yet (i’d have to interview for it). she’s contacted me out of the clear blue (berlin) sky asking if i am looking for work (in deutschland). as it is to start immediately, i think i shall decline but say think of me in the fall. wouldn’t that be tres bizarre and loop-dee-loop to pick up and go to east berlin for some production coordinating?
in codfish-a-gogo land news. looks like the trip to the east coast / carbonear will be taking place over the canada day weekend. i will only be going for 4 days while the other 2010s will stay a week – 10 days. ah well. such is life. i suppose i shall throw a massive party while they are away and dance on rooftops wearing disco-era platforms.
allergies have started. yesterday i sneezed once and just knew. now i am medicated. mmm reactine gimme gimme.
tonight roji arrives in advance of the amrit bday party at rattlesnake point tomorrow. i think roji, erin, sarain, russ & i will sit on the balcony and have a beer & some macaroni. (not positive about the macaroni bit)
