This is not the most exciting job, here in Google's legal department, but it could be worse. I did the stuff I was initially hired for and now I think I'm just being kept around for a few weeks to do any random things that the people doing "real work" don't feel like bothering with. Scanning, filing, mailing, whatever. But they're paying me (and feeding me!) for a while -- both better than at my last job -- so it's not too bad. There's a fair amount of down-time, so I can do other stuff, too (like writing on my blog). I don't know how much longer I'll be here, but I think it's at least through next week.

At lunch I finished reading The Mothman Prophecies, by John A. Keel, which was very interesting. I like a good dose of the paranormal once in a while, and this was cool because of the view it offered of the connections and relationships between different phenomena. There's a lot of really strange stuff in this world.

Tonight, Opening Committee is doing their pre-performance at the Pavilion dance. Good luck to all my friends in that group! I won't be there though, since it's conflicting with Friday Night Waltz (which I vastly prefer to the Pavilion) and I'll get to see them all dance at Viennese Ball anyway. Tomorrow I'm going to pick out my tux for the Ball. Okay, tails, since I know certain people out there are picky about that distinction, but I just call everything a tux. Tails are more fun, though. They fly around when you dance, but in a less dangerous way than Lacey's braids. Hmm. I tend to forget that she cut her hair when she's not around. But I guess it'll grow back to it's more lethal length soon enough.

Anyway, there's actually stuff I'm supposed to be doing right now, so it's back to work for me.
