The weird thing about working for a temp agency is that you get a great job – and decent pay – BUT, you get NONE of the benefits of the company and you get less money than the permanent employees since the temp agency gets to take a cut in on the action…..this of course I have no problem with on that level, as that is their bread & butter. I just hope and pray for the day when I make the jump to being permanent at the job I’m working at now. So far there are no other real good jobs in the area I’m living in that would make a change worth it.
I’m off tomorrow (yes, I do work at a banking place) due to the holiday, but I’m working my 2nd job (that is, unless they say it’s dead and they don’t need me – which doesn’t make any sense in hiring me in the first place). I just need a MOO-NEY! Yanno how it is when you have to make all your pennies count for something….
There is still so much to do before we can breathe easier again, but at the most, it’s a couple of things….but they are rather important things, so we gotta get those done. I think a day on the beach would be wonderful, and someday we’ll go there again. At least it’s easier to get there than it was in Denver. I still wish some of my friends from Denver were here right now…..that would be soooooo cool!
I found out that Mari cancelled her appearance at Fanime this year, but will be doing gigs in Japan…I wonder what that’s all about. I hope it’s not because I live in California right now…that would be stupid. I’m probably tripping….it’s probably because of something else, but I’ve not received any responses to my E-mails to her in recent weeks – not that I’ve sent very many. Ah well….wha-chaa gonna do. I watched “Torch Song Trilogy” again today, and it’s still as wonderful of a movie as the first time I watched it…..I so love listening to Harvey Fierstein and watching movies he’s in. I do hope to meet him someday….that would be super-cool!
After all……this is the land of dreams – in California, right? I hope so too.
