This is convenient, since I picked up the next chapter in the Mebi novel. It's a good deal longer than the first part -- by about 26 pages. Ooooh.
I'm going to this career councilling/placement firm. (Who do not actually place one in jobs, alas.) We have this group thing where we practice communications for interviews and such. We had an exercise to tell a work success story, with a two minute time limit on the presentation to explain the situation, what the challenges were, what I did, and what the outcome was. Mine came in at one minute fifty-nine second. (Guess all that timing work from rally came in handy! :) It was also the only presentation that no one had any suggestions for improvement on. Score!
Being at home all the time means all the little random things that I think "oh, I should just spend five minutes and get that done" are getting done. The closet doors that I've been meaning to paint for a couple of years are getting painted, the kitchen's cleaner than ever. Last night I reorganized the fabric collection (small, by the standards of most people I know, but large enough that things were starting to get lost.) I ran out of time to organize the fat quarters, but at least it's all contained now.
Randomly, happy birthday to Watanabe Daisuke. (Yeah, I know it's tomorrow in Japan now. But it's today here, so it still counts.)
