Back working. And hopefully being paid. Apparently there was confusion about me working (in the mind of the woman who does payroll for the department), and paperwork went in a week after I started. Work has consisted of writing/editing a report and loading software onto my laptop (a girl needs EKKO View Deluxe, Matlab and GPRMax). Should get data to play with/model soon. Maybe even data collection.
Money is good, as my kitty got sick. Not seriously, but Barry has pinkeye (basically). I should have just asked for a tube (not sure if they would have given me some without him going in), but he's my special boy. And I'm glad that I had it confirmed that it is just pinkeye, and he didn't get into a fight. I also guessed the advice we'd get. Diet. Somehow 18.5 pounds is heavy, and diabetes is the new worry. At least vet had an idea of how to feed Grep without feeding the others. A box with a small hole (big enough for her, to small for the others). Lju really needs a diet.
Also bought a calculator. I was randomly surfing the swapmeet at larryville.com, and found someone selling a TI-82 for $15. I could use a backup. I've had my current calculator for 13 years now, and have bonded (his name is Turtle). But TI doesn't make 82s any more. I always meant to steal Jorge's, but forgot before he moved out. I think I'll name the new one Snail (not because they're slow, but because they have a hard shell).
Other good news is a job offer (part time). Which isn't something I need, as I'm down for 40 hours a week with GPR this summer. Yesterday I stopped by my local bead shop for some retail therapy. The owner found out I do wirework (was wearing my green wire necklace). Apparently she has several projects commissioned and she isn't good at wire work. I am no elisem
, but I want to try. She also was interested in selling my stuff in the store. I'm going in Friday after work to see what she wants me to do. I'm trying to not get to excited, in case it turns out to be scammy or a bad enviroment, but.. to get paid for my hobby would be awesome. And I didn't even have to push my work.
