So, just shy of one year since I was hit by a truck (by an asshole fiddling with his phone.  Which is why I *will* start to avoid your calls if you insist on calling me while driving, and I damn sure won't ride in a car with you), the final bits of paperwork were signed and my medical bills and other expenses are all taken care of, plus a little on the side.

(The irony that I am now filling out paperwork and dealing with doctors for a new head injury is not lost on me, but at least THAT chapter in The Adventures of Head Trauma Girl is over).

Work has been...interesting.  I need to write about the power dynamics, but my brain is not up to it today.  I'm getting more hours and some actual cross training (okay, I'm a stooge when they need catering help.  However, that's more hours, more job knowledge, and more job security), so that's good.

I'm still looking for another job, but I am taking this one as a way of putting all of those hours of watching Survivor to good use.  If nothing else, I WILL outlast J, who is the one who seems hell bent at driving me out of my gourd.

In other news, Kent had a job interview today, and it seems like it went really well.  *crosses fingers*

Still no word from Santa Pete.  I've yet to be able to get patched into his room at the hospital, because their switchboard (or whatever they call it these days) system is a joke, and a poor one at that.  I keep getting disconnected.  I may have to march up there after work and pretend to be his granddaughter.

Oh, and in some really awesome news, I got an email from Jamie Anderson asking if I want to volunteer for the We Aren't Dead Yet show this June.  *bounce*  This will be year three of attending, and my second year hauling amps.  *bouncebouncebounce*  I was really afraid that, with the political fucked-upness that is NC, they wouldn't come this year.  I'm so happy!

So, RuPaul's Drag Extravaganza is May 22, my birthday is May 27, and We Aren't Dead Yet in June 4.  Now THAT is a birthday blowout if ever there was one!

Tomorrow, I have a birthday party that involves goths and Skee-ball.  Saturday, I get to decide if I want to go to see Abbey Road Live!, go to a David Bowie tribute concert (I'm kind of leaning towards that)....or just come home, put on my pjs, and not leave the house until Tuesday.  We'll see.

Goths and skeeball sounds perfect, tbh

AND there was a free beer tasting at the place downstairs (also owned by the bar owner). It was a great night!

Wow, I am hella jealous of your party life.

Good to hear work is...good? Job security at a bad job...hmmm

And I looked up Ain't dead yet, and now I"m more jealous. Have fun!

Glad to hear you got the medical bills sorted. I won't use my phone when driving. If it's important - that's what voicemail is for.

Enjoy your weekend! I hope Santa Pete is doing well?

He's one pissy old man atm, because all of his problems seem to stem from ignoring his diabetes. Which means he needs to straighten up and fly right re: the way he eats RIGHT NOW.

Need I mention he's set in his ways and not used to having to deny himself (he was the only, adopted child of wealthy older parents. He can be a bit of a brat at times)

Glad the medical bills are being sorted. Your description of work makes me miss The Biz a little...

I'm sorry the job is being difficult. It's so hard to work somewhere where you're not respected or valued!

Sounds like lots of fun stuff coming up, though!

I so want to bear more about your goth skeeball event.

There's talk about cops maybe getting a "textalizer" to check for phone use (after an accident). The texts themselves wouldn't be reveled, just the time stamps.

Already the whining is up to 11 (Invasion of privacy!). Wouldn't surprise me if the majority of protesters fiddle with their phones while driving.
