neverwhere: (BWEEEEEE [python/giddysquee])
[personal profile] neverwhere
After six grueling months feeling utterly depressed, dejected and an unwanted, useless failure I FINALLY HAVE A JOB.

It's only part time (sadly), and minimum wage (sigh), but somebody finally fucking hired me. The local Jewish Community Centre, to be precise. (I think [livejournal.com profile] newredshoes will be pleased I'm keeping up the Jewcy pride ;-) I get to answer phones and give tours of the facility and other various customer service duties. I could do this job in my sleep. But it's a job, and that's all that matters. I've been a recluse for months because I couldn't afford to go anywhere or do anything, so hopefully now that will change. :) I'm sure I will be far less depressed once I am able to leave my tiny, squalid flat. (The ceiling continues to fall on the floor, and I had to spend almost an hour on saturday scrubbing the bathtub because so much ceiling and wall crap had fallen into it and it was unusable, bleaugh. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET OUT OF HERE.)

Oh, amusing fact about the JCC -- Tim Russ, aka Tuvok from Voyager is a member. I hope I can bother him politely for an autograph sometime. *grins*

I really should update about Neil and things, shouldn't I. SOON, kittens. :)

I shall just make you all insanely jealous by saying how much I enjoyed reading The Graveyard Book. Bwahahaha. ;-)

Thank you! I wish it were more impressive, but honestly at this point I am happy for ANYTHING. :) Plus it is a nice (if rather clinical looking) place, and I get to use their gym for free, wooohoo! :D

From: [identity profile] angelislington.livejournal.com
A step up from unemployment is a HUGE step up indeed. ;-)

Does she get to be rude to people at the Lodge? Cause that would definitely be a step up from having to deal with crap all day as a waitress *grins*

Dude. Tim Russ. TIM RUSS.

I think his wife is a member, that may be the connection. But however he's there, I just hope I get a photo! :D

Mazel tov, bubeleh! Jobs are good, no matter how lame.

I'm giggling about Tim Russ, mostly because I hate anything to do with V'ger and I once saw him at a con and he was as boring as Tuvok was on screen (which is to say VERY). I'm sure he is a nice guy though. Also, you know there aren't that many African American Jews in the world so...yeah.

I'm so used to Unca Neil letting everyone else read his stuffs early that I'm past the point of jealousy. (Well, mostly. ;))

Tim does seem rather dull, both on the show and in real life, but maybe he'll be in good humour after a session at the gym. *grins*

You will read it soon! I'm going to get the UK edition as well, because I'm stupid. And a collecting fiend. MUST HAVE EEEEEEEEVERYTHING. Srsly. *giggles*

Heh heh -- he might be a nice guy. Most actors are (except when they're not!) That's pretty funny though. People always look at me funny when I tell them Shatner's a Jew. But Tuvok? LOL

I have it on order from Amazon -- did you know the fucking BASTARDS in NY State have now insisted that Amazon charge sales tax to NY State residents even though Amazon is not in the state (usually that's the rule). Amazon is fighting it but now I have to pay 9% more for everything. GRRRR!

Honestly, it's about bloody time. I was in such despair, thinking I was so unwanted by everyone. Bleaugh.

I wish it were a better (higher paying!) job, but at least it's something, right? :)

Congrats!! Been there and boy do I sympathize. Also I now have RENT running around in circles in my brain:

"Where'd you learn to tango?"
"With the French ambassador's daughter in her dorm room at Miss Porter's. And you?"
"With Nanette Himmelfarb the Rabbi's daughter at the Scarsdale Jewish Community Center..."

...yeah. I'm done now. XD

Neat!

I think part of my duties will be to help out with the afterschool programmes, but I hope I don't have anything to do with daycare -- nappy changing is NOT my style. ;-)

From: [identity profile] lego-the-eggo.livejournal.com
Yeah daycare would suck. :( I've felt your pain.

Luckily I've got the 8th-9th graders. I'm assuming they're potty trained. :P

Hoping...

Please?

SHUT UP SHUT UP! *hands over ears*

No, that came out wrong. Can I have my ears back please?

Also congrats! :) But isn't your landlord obliged to stop your ceiling from falling on you?

ps. sorry I've kind of let the scrabulous game slide. I just keep forgetting about it!

BWAHAHAAHAHAHAAAA *grins and taunts you playfully* :D

You're adorable. *gigglesquish*

My landlord is a bastard and the less I talk to him the better. He tries to accuse me of doing horrible things like flushing my dinner (and the contents of my sock drawer) down the loo, or setting up illegal cable tv. Stupid shit that I quite obviously have not done. And then when I try to tell him that my flat is falling apart, I have no heat, no gas, sometimes even no running water, he ignores me. Or says its my fault. Yeah, I HATE this place. But the rent is the cheapest in my area, so what can I do? :/

Plus, I'm moving to Brighton soon. SO WHO CARES. :D

If I could, you know I would. :) But since it took me so ridiculously long to get mine, I don't think you'd want my services anyway. *grins*
