Wow end of 08 already?

Seemed to just fly by. Here's hoping that 2009 is better for everyone than 2008 was. I would say that the national and international news couldn't get any more bleak, but that would just be asking for trouble!

Happy NewYear, everybody!

Every year

in American Studies (a 2 hour AP English & History combined class for high school juniors) there was an assignment to unmask "Deep Throat". I'm not sure how many years they gave the assignment, or what they did once he decided to unmask himself. I guessed Spiro Agnew. I don't know why. I don't know if anyone ever got it right, I'm sure someone did over the years. It's just a shame that the assignment can't be done anymore.

Has it really been a month? How times flies when you're not doing anything! I have learned that I don't do "free time" very well. Besides looking for a new job, (and doing my current job) I haven't done anything constructive over the last 40 days.

On the job front: I think my official stats are: I've turned down one job and two interview requests. I've been turned down for two jobs and one potential job is no more due to budget cutbacks at the University. I'm glad I have a job right now, or else I might be really concerned! The search continues. One of my good friends was recently let go from her University job because of budget issues. Scary stuff.

In the meantime, before I was a librarian......or a lawyer.....or a resident of Indiana.....I was a musician. So, to take up some of my free time, I'm going back to music. Music lessons right now because I could definitely use music lessons. Then we'll see. That should be enough to keep me out of trouble right now.

What's new with all of you?

"He knew what he was doing when he gave me the Deluminator, didn't he? He -- well," Ron's ears turned bright red and he became engrossed in a tuft of grass at his feet, which he prodded with his toe, "he must've known I'd run out on you."

"No," Harry corrected him. "He must've known you'd always want to come back."
