I have a job! I'm going to work for the Lewis County Conservation District, doing culvert surveying for the Quinaults, and then maybe nutrient management and farm planning too. I'll be moving down to Centralia or Chehalis in a month or so, when I find a place. Excitement!

That WSDA job didn't come though. Sounds like I was one of the last couple candidates, but they offered it to someone else. Sigh. Off to apply for the weed job.

I went digging for razor clams last Sunday for the first time, and Bryan said I'm a natural. Find the 'tell' (mark the clam leaves in the sand), dig straight down really fast, reach arm down and feel around, grab clam, carefully work it up out of the sand. It was like a big party of hundreds of people spread all up and down the beach, kids, dogs, gulls overhead hoping to get a treat. Cleaning them isn't as fun, but not too bad, and they are pretty tasty.

I leave tomorrow morning to visit my mom, and my neighbor is watching the critters for me. I just got an email from the people I interviewed with last week, they haven't made their decision yet but expect to by the end of next week. My old boss also invited me to apply for the weed inspector position for this year, so hopefully I'll be working again soon.

The interview seemed to go very well, but now the waiting is killing me. I talked with my grandpa John, and he said that Grandma has pneumonia, but that she is recovering and should be released in a couple days. Why do I only ever hear about this stuff almost a week after she was admitted?

Hurray, I'm working! What am I doing, and what am I making? I am ringing bells for the Salvation Army, and making minimum wage, around 8 bucks. It's mostly ok, chilly, but one lady last night gave me hot cocoa, so that was nice. And most people are friendly, but I'm really glad that I'm doing it here and not in Wisconsin, though we are supposed to get snow this weekend. I'm going to go dig clams in the ocean this Friday for the first time, anybody got a good recipe for razor clams? I'm guessing a little different from wading in the Mississippi and feeling around with your toes. You couldn't pay me to wade in the north Pacific this time of year, I want to keep my feet thanks so much...:)

I spent Thanksgiving at bobmage's place, had good food, talk and tickled a large cat. On the way home, I made the mistake of going via Shelton and so was on a twisty, 2-lane road most of the way. Now I remember why I don't like driving at night, bright lights coming the other way suck.

I'm going up to my aunt's place today and we'll be going to the movie with Hugh Jackman, cause he's a hottie :)

Another dumb quiz

Susan Ivanova

Fiercely dedicated to bringing an end to corruption and exploitation, you are a strong-willed and courageous force of light.

"Ivanova is always right. I will listen to Ivanova. I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God."

Susan is a character in the Babylon 5 universe. You can read her biography at the Worlds of JMS fansite.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?



I don't know enough about TV/media characters to know if this one is any good, but I'll take it. I'd like to see on based on book characters, that one I'd be interested in. If there is such a quiz, and it's a good one, Mike would surely turn out to be Harry Dresden, but I'd probably turn out to be some hokey elf or some such crap.

I must say that I am very happy that our next president is not a complete jackass like our current one. I bet Bush is planning all sorts of nasty last minute surprises. Obama'll have his work cut out for him, hopefully we can maintain the momentum so that he'll have the public support he needs to get things done.
