Some Things I Should Probably Mention

I lost my job a week ago. Please don't be distressed on my behalf--things were at a point where I was more relieved than gutted. (As I put it to my parents, I was rather hoping that particular chapter of my life wouldn't be guest-written by Franz Kafka, but no such luck.) Within about six hours of having the boom lowered on me I'd landed an interview at the law firm where Lawyer Awesome moved to. If you want to send any prayers or pozzies in my direction, send them towards me landing that gig because it would be the sweetest possible revenge.

I should hear back by the end of the week, so in the meantime I'm putting my house in order and filing for unemployment, just in case. But I can't escape the sense that this week of freedom may be all I'll get before I'm back at a desk, so I'm making the most of it.

Today I took pleasure in a second cup of tea.

Today I learned a cheap way to get rid of fruit flies.

Sweet revenges are... sweet, I'm crossing everything for you!

ETA: Oh, and what is the cheap way to get rid of fruit flies?

Apple cider vinegar and dish soap. Fill a jar or bowl to the brim with apple cider vinegar and add a bit of dish soap. When the fruit flies land on it, the dish soap breaks the surface tension and they drown.

I've got a bowl in the sink right now, though I seem to be taking more of them out by whacking them against the sides of the sink than actually drowning them. Whatever works.

Alas, my revenge was thwarted, at least by that particular route, but I still have quite a few other law firms I can apply to with my accumulated experience.
