Busy Week

So, last week was eventful, mostly in a good way, but, also in a "huh" kinda way,  which, clearly demands explanation. The first part, which relates to job stuff, I'm not at all sure what to do about, and then there were interesting potential developments on the Buffy game front.

*Warning: long post*

So, Slayerfest starts *tomorrow* and, I'm so behind. I'm going to have the dinner outside so that we can free up inside tables for games. If the people who arrive on Friday night are not interested in games, we may just plunge ahead to the watching of the show. 

The new job is going fairly well. The people are very nice, the work's, well, not terrible exciting. It's not difficult. Most of the time, I feel mostly like an overglorified secretary. But, maybe that's because I've not yet seen all the things I'm supposed to be doing. Afterall, it's only been a week, right?

Anyway. So, between work and Slayerfest, I'm not doing a whole lot else. Sorry I've been, sorta, incommunicado.

...but, not from the job I'd been working at. 

Wednesday I had an interview, and it resulted in a job offer. After some consideration, and talking with my current boss, for whom, I'll still be covering some things on a part-time basis, and maybe doing some writing (racking up some more billable hours), I decided to accept the job. The people seemed very friendly and knowledgeable, and it'll cover the bills, so I'm not worried about homelessness or starvation.

I'll be working as the Career and Professional Development Coordinator at the Financial Planning Association, which a few of you might remember as the place [profile] srotu27 works at. Thanks to her for sending the listing my way. I start Wednesday. 

All of this means that my other projects, well, are even further behind. 

Anyway, that's the way it is for now.

I'm meeting with my boss tomorrow, and the agenda is my contract, benefits, and, most importantly, *when* I can expect to get a check.

I had a phone interview last week, and one today. So, whatever happens, there's a light at then end of the tunnel, and I *will* have a paycheck. Hopefully, before the unemployment well runs dry. Which is soon.

I did get a few more Slayerfest votes, and the people have spoken. The marathon will be: (I almost feel like there should be a drumroll...)

Buffy and Angel: The highlights! Run through the story of the televised Buffyverse in 56 episodes! (Although, we'll probably only get through half that.) It was hard to pick the episodes that could tell the story. It boiled down to 36 Buffy episodes, and 20 Angel episodes.

The special event episodes will be: (this one seems to be okay without a drumroll. Go fig.) Buffy vs. Hollywood.

Anyway, I'll post the details soon. Oh! And I'm thinking of having tuna/wasabi skewers this year, but, am afraid that I won't find good tuna steaks in this state. Any ideas on this?

I'm probably going to do the Friday night as G&C again this year, with the Buffy games. Unless everyone hated that.

The last week or so, I've been pretty unproductive, and I'm sorta feeling guilty about doing a journal update instead of work. It's been hard to be motivated to work, hopefully, it'll be better after tomorrow. There's another retreat on Saturday, and I hope it's as good as the last one. It's already better in my book, since it's not in Outer Smongolia Aurora, but, rather at Regis. Woot!

I guess that's it for now. I should go to bed. My dad's coming up tomorrow.
