payday

Hoo-rah, my first paycheck from the new job. It’s not stupendous, but it’s a check. I’m sort of struggling with the fact that not only has my household income decreased by half (without Nate), my personal income has decreased by half as well. So I’m living off of 25% of what I had two months ago. It’s OK – just an adjustment. Thank God (or Busey) for a brilliant employee assistance plan – I’m in need of more “professional” clothing and can’t afford it on my own.
Nearly done with How Proust Can Change Your Life by Alain de Botton. It’s a good time. And no, I haven’t actually read Proust. Suck it. I started The Matisse Stories tonight at the library – that’s what happens when you have to wait around for a computer. It’s really lovely and is giving me lots of ideas for my NaNovel. Actually it’s mainly just lovely – I have no ideas.
Two words: Philip, wow. I’ve always wanted to be a muse. 🙂
I feel like all the things I have to say these days are either totally random (like the weird bird on my phone) or totally irrelevant or totally hyperbolic and ridiculous. Or maybe all of the above. My apologies. Hope it doesn’t keep any of you away.
Oh, and if you don’t have anything planned for next month and don’t particularly value your sanity, you need to check out NaNoWriMo. It is carefully organized insanity. Or something. I’m the Municipal Liaison for the Champaign-Urbana along with Robby, henceforth known as Bearded Library Boy. So if you’re here and you want to play (or, again, don’t value your sanity), you should sign up. It’ll be funnnnn……
