Whew!

One trip to the Georgia Department of Labor Career Center later, my unemployment insurance payments have now been straightened out.

Went out on Friday night to the Highland Ballroom to see The Pin-Ups, a cover band that covers all the songs off of David Bowie's Pin-Ups album and then throws in some classic Bowie tunes for good measure. Got to see Hot Mod Boy again, wish him a happy birthday, and even kiss him goodnight. (I aimed for his cheek and he intercepted with his lips. No complaints.) Also ran into Christian, a guy that azewewish and I knew Way The Hell Back When. He didn't quite remember my name; I barely recognized his face. The sheer awkwardness of the encounter sent me slipping into the night perhaps a bit sooner than I would have otherwise. (Though he was kind enough to give me the business card of a friend of his who might know somebody looking for a paralegal.)

I've been poking about Facebook a bit more, though I tend to keep my contacts confined to people I genuinely know or would like to get to know better. I don't particularly feel the need to friend people from high school who I barely spoke to at the time, not even for the petty vengeance "check out how cool my life is now" factor. Especially since my life is running a bit low on the coolness at the moment. Will have to work on that.

For those of you who expressed concern, thank you. I am improving.

On my way to bed now, methinks.

Today I took pleasure in a cup of tea with my breakfast.

Today I learned what the graphics program GIMP is like.

I still can't believe you ran into him. Talk about a blast from the past, man. *laughs*

How's he looking these days?

He mentioned he'd been working at the same place for twenty years now. That should give you something of an idea.
