Before other topics, fandom (as always with me)...

Assignments have gone out for the mini-Yuletide exchange Night on Fic Mountain, and there are some pinch hits urgently needed. The fandoms are Avatars - Tui T Sutherland, The Little Lady Agency - Hester Browne, The Trouble With Kings - Sherwood Smith, Eon - Alison Goodman, Being Human (US/Canada) , Intelligence (US TV 2014), Saving Hope, and Life (TV). If you can help with any of those, well, help would be appreciated. See the Night on Fic Mountain LJ and DW communities. I believe the third pinch hit has been claimed.

The new job is going really well. I'm still working through training materials and have yet to do any real work, or so I feel, but I am assured that that is fine. I'm here for the long haul. Better to really understand the material. It's a friendly office. It has knitters and people with little Tardises on their desk. People whose favourite colour is orange and who like cats. There's a bake-off on Monday. There's a person who does Yuletide.

(That was a surprise. The HR advisor led me on a tour of the upper floors - I walked into that person's office with my hand outstretched ready to shake - and then did a double-take. Oh, it's you, distant fandom acquaintance!)

80~90-person office and there's someone else who does Yuletide. THIS CITY.

(I mentioned online writing communities, in a coy way, in the personal profile I had to submit for the departmental newsletter. I was mainly thinking of Jukebox, though. It was the last day of sign-ups and my grin was splitting my face at the idea of 54 AMAZING PEOPLE, YOU ALL ARE THE BEST.)

I am adjusting okay, I think. Like: yesterday I went to main job and came home and had dinner in the oven at 5:40pm and cleaned out the cat's litter box and arranged with Spark to cancel my landline and ate dinner with Joel and went to work at job #2 and worked approximately between 7:40pm and 10:20pm and came home by 10:45pm and.... stayed up wasting time on the internet, but apart from that, highly successful adulting. I have had a few days like that. Good. Today I forwent work at job #2, except for a related social thing, in order to catch up with a friend, which was really nice. Not sure if I'll be able to work tomorrow evening, especially since I'm taking my long-suffering laptop in to have the trackpad fixed, but in its turn, that will motivate me to get into work early on Saturday and Sunday, because of limited access to home internet. Meanwhile, in this dearth of internet, I'll work on my Once Upon Fic (plans A and B, competing) on paper. And so it goes.

I think I can I think I can I think I can I think I can.
