Yes, there is actual activity going on in the sewing room. It's been so long that I can't even remember the last thing I sewed for me. I think it was the plaid Magic Pencil skirt (which still remains an orphan). The skirt and top are all cut out. I'm going to jump out of bed tomorrow and get sewing. It's knits and not too many seams so it should go fast. And they had better turn out nice since I want a new outfit to wear for The Day Which Shall Not Be Mentioned (except to say I'm going out to dinner with some work friends to commiserate … I mean CELEBRATE … and the person who remains at home who also shall not be mentioned can just go suck it. Hah!).
I had to go into work today for a few hours, but I really like being there by myself with my music blasting out of my phone and the rest of the place so quiet. Since I still feel like I'm being paid to just play on the computer, it didn't feel much like work anyway. Plus, I just paid a big Alex-mustang repair bill (new clutch and linkage) and the OT will ease the pain somewhat. A word to the wise: 1965 cars will bleed you dry. ;-) Three candidates to work with me were interviewed on Friday but I don't think we found a keeper yet, so I'll continue to stay very busy. Honestly, we'll *both* stay busy even after this person is hired since there is so much new stuff planned that we're keeping on hold because there just aren't enough hours in the day.
Speaking of fun work stuff, I'm going to be interviewed for a magazine next week — "A Day In the Life of a Law Firm Graphic Designer," or some other more exciting title, as part of the bigger topic of "A Day In the Life" of various law firm positions. Cool, huh? Look Ma! I'm FAMOUS! lol
