Job Interview Today . . .

As in, yeah, past tense. I didn't feel like wasting everybody's pozzies by asking for them beforehand. I've gotten a wee bit cynical about the process by now.

It seems like it would be a nice enough place to work, but I don't have my hopes up. All I'm saying about it at this point.

Ran into Jim, the drummer for The Pinx, on the way out. He didn't recognize me until I prompted him with my knowledge of his secret life as a rock star. (I've been known to be caught equally flat-footed when I run into people 'out of context', so I don't blame him for being a little baffled.) He seemed horrified when I told him I'd been unemployed for eight months--he told me about the time he'd been unemployed for something like a year and half and it nearly drove him crazy. I assured him I was in a better situation than most and that I'd been keeping myself busy instead of tormenting myself with long stretches of unfilled time.

Which, to be honest, I have. I've gotten a little more product in the shop in Second Life and we're getting ready to roll out more soon now that we've gotten the process pretty much worked out. I've been getting a lot of writing done and laying the groundwork for a project I've been contemplating for some time. I've been doing research at the library and courthouse that have snared me some warmish leads to some potentially lucrative opportunities. (Knock wood.) In short, I've been getting as much done as I can manage while the "I don't have the time" excuse is still invalid. I've recently taken to putting the blinky insomnia hours to some kind of use instead of tossturning for hours and I seem to be sleeping a little more soundly when I do finally get tired enough to go to bed.

I'm still prone to occasional fits of What The Hell Is The Point Of Doing Anything, but I manage to talk myself down from them by doing just one tiny little thing and letting momentum take me as far as it's able from that point.

NaNoWriMo in a little over two weeks. I was going to fall back on something easy, but there's another idea that started to take a slightly clearer shape last night and it got me fired up enough to seriously consider it for this year. I just still need to figure out what exactly the obstacle is.

Oh, by the way, those of you Twittering at me, I changed my ID from @thewonderbink to @wonderbink. And I've set up an artsy-creativy blog at wonderbink.com, in case you want to check that out, too.

Today I took pleasure in listening to Groovelectric on headphones. Day-um.

Today I learned about the law firm I may or may not be working at.
