It's getting cold out.


I'm still continuing a very painful and discouraging job hunt. My dream jobs keep being taken by people who have more experience. I don't know ... I think general talent is kind of important, too.

Meh, well. Something's gotta take at some point. I hope. The sorts of jobs I'm allowed to work are a bit (read: lot) more limited than they once were, so the main stress of the hunt becomes my ability to actually find anything to hunt after.

However, I'm too tired at the moment to be too affected by that. And the South Park movie is on Secret Stash. If you have been, I did warn you.

Ah Maive, Maive, Maive, Maive...

Ah, so wow. First nice day in WEEKS Saturday. I mean the first time we've seen the sun in this area for nearly 2 weeks if I'm not mistaken. So what happens? Everyone and their mothers decide to come to the park today.

By 1PM we hit a 5 year record for attendance [over 20K in the park] and by 4 we had hit capacity or pretty damned close [capacity is when there's no place to park. You could probably park somewhere close and walk to the Scotland parking lot and catch the tram and still get into the park, but...]

Admittedly some HOS stuff started at 3:30, but it was still rather ridiculous. And traffic! BAH! The interstate was a parking lot. And having to commute an extra half hour to take care of parents pets makes Mich a very unhappy person.

In other news, I think I'll continue on with my trivia question idea. I'll come up with some nifty prizes later, but as I'm not an artist, that's a bit harder.

So the first question we have so far is: What am I now claiming 'Mich' stands for?

Question two is: What language is Mai'lu from, and what does it mean? [ok, two questions, bite me]

I've got a few more, but I'll add those later.

If you have been, don't forget to say hi to Kara's weird uncle!
