Mike listens to me about anything electronic or technical, so when I told him we needed wireless internet service, he looked at me blankly and nodded his head and agreed. I immediately ordered service through the phone company, sat back, and waited. A few days later, we got a package in the mail with our sweet sweet wireless information, including our new modem. It was like Christmas in January! You see, I am a nerd. The next day, we received a phone call from James Earl Jones informing us that our wireless service had been activated! Oh, happy day! We each got on our computers and walked throughout the apartment, sending each other instant messages that said, “Can you hear me now?” We totally nerded it up. But now we can both be on the Internet at the same time, which is crucial. And as a totally awesome bonus, I can now sit on the couch and job search at the same time! The fact that the TV with the DVR just so happens to be a few feet away from the couch is, uh, totally irrelevant.
So, of course, right now I am sitting on the couch, watching recorded Simpsons re-runs (Bart & Homer, not Jessica & Ashlee), while my yummy dinner digests. Mike loves his BBQ, and tonight he made some delicious steaks while I grilled garlic shrimp. Mmm mmm good, my babies. I am feeling rather content at the moment, despite the fact that it was a sad and icky day here in Los Angeles. I am happy because this Friday is my last day temping for my former company. I have taken a step back and realized how good it was that I temped for them, and I am glad I was able to do it while I was re-adjusting to LA life. At the same time, I am excited at the prospect of a new beginning. The temp agency I’m with will probably place me with another company, and I think it will be cool to try a new place and meet new people. And, if they don’t, that gives me more time to job search and, uh, not work! While I’m worried about the financial aspects of not having a job for an undetermined amount of time, I’m really looking forward to having the time to sit back and figure out what the hell I want to do with myself. It’s also fun to daydream about some amazing opportunity coming my way that pays a lot, so I can get out of debt and also buy pretty things.
Anywhoodle…I’m just settling back into LA life. After my brush with the law yesterday, I have decided to be low pro. You know, since I am normally so “out there.” I have a busy few days and weekends coming up. I can’t believe next week is already February! Mike’s parents are coming down tomorrow, and then I’m off for the weekend with Brianne. Then the next weekend is the Superbowl, followed by the Grammys, and some bridal showers and bachelorettes and weddings and then I think it might be Christmas. It’s going to be one of those years! It should be great.
