Wherein the Author Becomes a Whore

Hello, my friends. I will tell you right off the bat that I have a very good reason for the paucity of posts since espana: I seem to suddenly have a real job. Granted, I have worked hard before, but I don't think I ever worked so consistently hard. I wake up earlier in the morning, have a longer commute and get home later in the evening. I ride the bus with smelly people every morning and (for the last week straight) get splashed by assholes in cars during the 20 minute walk. I have to wear nice clothes every day and they almost all have to be tailored and professionally cleaned. I have to carry an extra pair of shoes. I don't get paid for my lunch break. I can't surf the net at work. I certainly can't update my blog...

and yet...

and yet I am so much happier than I've been in a awfully long time. I really like having a job that is so challenging. There are endless meetings and work and work and meetings and work, but it's all for good reasons. I was surrounded by gross incompetence for the last year and a half, so it is just thrilling to be in a place where everyone has something to do and they each know how to do it.

So anyway, blah-di blah blah. I will be very excited when the rain lets up and softball starts. In the meantime, I have posted a bunch more of the Spain pictures. (Not all of them, of course; I wouldn't want to bore you to death.) They are with the others and I don't feel like linking to them, so be a dear and scroll down to the previous post if you're interested in seeing them.
