I went through my inbox ruthlessly to clear out the detritus and so I could actually /see/ the important things which need responding to. That responding to is on the to-do list for tomorrow after the requisite fresh batch of omg-give-me-a-job-already emails littered with the appropriate action verbs. The humane society down the street is hiring for a position I'm over-qualified for, and paying roughly half than the places I'm at round two on, and that one's looking like a no-go. I'm beginning to fear I am jinxed for everywhere I actually want to work and devote my energy towards. Seriously, nothing sucks more than seeing a fresh post for a job you applied for a week prior. @_@ Job hunting drives me crazy. So much crazy that I'm actually looking at the design field again and considering going back to selling my soul and dying inside for infuriating clients with zero morals. I remind myself that I have a cute illustration gig in the meantime for a perfectly nice client.
Aside from sending off resumes to die in a big black void somewhere in the intertubes and also cleaning up my emails, I biked with J to the marina today. We were riding against the wind on the way there, and my knees felt it by the time we got off the road. I sat on a bench and squirrel watched for a bit while J lazed in the grass. There was a baby squirrel which was the Cutest Thing Ever, and after that scampered off, I moved over onto the grass too. Lazing felt supremely nice, and it was kindof adorable when the mama squirrel came up so close as to nibble on the bike light strapped to my backpack. Hee.
The rest of the housemates joined us in going to watch Iron Man again. Unf. Second viewing retains high level of omfgwee. So amazingly sexy, in so many ways. Pls to be hurrying up with sequel so I can fangirl to death over War Machine.
...oh man, suddenly it occurs to me that I should totally draw some Tony Stark/War Machine. :x
ETA: Did a quick Stark/Rhodes doodle. Um, haha, pardon the scrawl. Next time I want to draw Stark crawling naked all over Rhodes in War Machine and oh, I don't know, sucking on something phallic, but this'll do to sate my fangirling for now. :3( [PG-13] - Iron Man - Stark/Rhodes - How's the Fit? )
