Soooo, pictures? Okay?*
*This is me not blogging about the one topic that has been consuming all of my thoughts for the last week and a half, namely a job (a really awesome perfect-for-me job that I found online and have been actively pursuing since then. As in, showing up at the department office in a suit, resume in hand on Friday, emailing another entire application *now with bonus proposed course syllabus!* on Monday, and several really dorky sounding voice mails).
Hell on wheels, this one is.
Because I don't want to get my hopes up and am fully expecting a "we're just not that into you" letter any day now. For now I am trying to be "professionally annoying" which is what I guess you have to do to get a job. The trick is to not become actually annoying. Which might happen if after showing up once and emailing a second application and leaving several voice mails I show up bearing donuts and coffee today (mmmm donuts and coffee). Fortunately there were no drop-off spots for Wes today so I don't have that option. Unless showing up with donuts, coffee, and an infant would help me. Given Wes's recent prediliction for screaming as though being dismembered, I don't think it would.
