INTERN has been posting a little less frequently these past couple weeks, because she is starting her new internship in exactly seven days and has been taking advantage of her last little bit of time pre-full time internment to:
-gossip w/Hippie Roommate re: Vampire Roommate (Apparently, the girl who had INTERN's room before INTERN got on Vampire Roommate's bad side (or the VR got on *her* bad side) and they spent the last three months before said girl moved out hexing one another. Says Hippie Roommate "I was always tripping over bowls of salt water and rusty nails." INTERN is glad she dodged that bullet. Sheesh!)
-scrounge together some kind of acceptable outfit for a fancy reading she will be working at as part of her first week at Venerable McPulitzer Publishing Co.
-help Techie Boyfriend construct an astrolabe.
-gossip w/Techie Boyfriend re: Hippie Roommate's new manfriend (a soft-spoken, generous, intelligent 45-year old businessman (!) whose moodlit apartment contains no furniture, only yoga props) and speculate about how this will affect her dumpster-diving ninja ways.
-do as many odd jobs as possible (life-modeling, deck swabbing, tutoring, etc) because there will be less time to do those life-sustaining things once said Internship has begun.
-visit friends, read books. revise novel.
In any event, INTERN expects to be back to a more regular and predictable posting schedule in the near future.
PS If you need something to read right now, you might want to ponder this intriguing article about the pros and cons of free books on Kindle. (via INTERN's forward-happy dad)
