I think I managed to convince the temp agency people that I am not a stinky misanthrope with club hands and poor dental hygiene. Since that is what I planned to accomplish today, I feel at ease and ready to tackle the two writing projects I have to finish in the next few days. If anyone knows of jobs that aren't overly concerned with words per minute, drop me an email.
Distractingly, I am reading Half Life by Shelley Jackson. I am loving it, especially when she zooms in on detals of the characters lives, like partial lists of their bookshelves' contents and press releases from aggressive factions of the siamese twin subculture she has modeled on San Francisco gay culture. Was that a spoiler?
So far, I would recommend HL to anyone who is horny for details or just wants to read more fiction (Matt S, I am looking at you) because HL feels like truth so far.
