Meme from alliterations

The rules are, list seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven songs.

I should probably talk about my new job. But I don't really want to go into it. I'm working on the Victoria Clipper, which is fun but I'm pretty jealous of people whose workplaces don't occasionally start rocking from side to side violently and making everyone on them sick.

Pick 10 movies/video games/literary works/TV shows/music and put their summaries from Better Than It Sounds (TVTropes). Without cheating, have your friends guess.

In other news, I have a job interview for working as an attendant on the Victoria Clipper on Wednesday. There's a pretty major job fair I'm planning on going to right afterward. And so now of of course course I'm coming down with a cold...

I KNEW IT!!!

I'm pretty sure it also inspired the name of "The Tigers Have Spoken."

I kind of have an interview! For a job! Doing data entry for contract @ Microsoft for 18 months! It would pay $9 an hour and be full time!

I'm not actually that excited.

Pros:
Full-time
Contract work and thus will not creep up and end up being what I do for the next 15 years, and I won't get laid off in 3 months
Seems easy enough
Can help "get my foot in the door at Microsoft"

Cons:
Redmond is REALLY FREAKING FAR AWAY. Preliminary Metro trip planning looks like an hour and a half either way.
Contract work and thus no benefits, no prospects for improvement, also I am stuck doing it for the next year and a half no matter how miserable I am
Seems mind-killingly tedious
I have absolutely no interest in getting my foot in the door at Microsoft, and this is in fact work that has absolutely nothing to do with anything I'd like to be doing long-term
The pay is a pittance, to the point where I find it seriously doubtful that I would be able to afford a car or an apartment in Redmond to reduce the commute crunch

I only have a kind of preliminary interview right now but they're rushing the hiring process, seems like they want to be done with it by the end of next week or so. So I should sort out my impressions now.

Good opportunity? Is my ambivalence justified or am I being picky? Should I be happy for any work at all and take it? I got the interview through a moderately sketchy website, so does any of this ring alarms for anyone? (It's a contract w/ Xerox at Microsoft through a staffing company... hmmmm.)

I walked around a loooooot yesterday. It was fun, but I spent too much money. College made me bad at not-spending money. I used to be so good at it. Bah.

Folklife this weekend!!!!! Those who are going, when will you be there?

Still feeling depressed. Eeyup.

Used the bike to get somewhere yesterday... i.e. to my bank and Gov Cup. Stayed on the sidewalk, but it was nice to have enough confidence to actually go places.

Saturday night was fun. India Palace, silly pictures while walking on the waterfront, and Milk. Good movie.

I'm supposed to be tabling for the Day of Silence with Angles, but I've had a lot of trouble with scheduling. First they sent out a schedule for this week this morning... with me scheduled to table at 11:45... two hours after the e-mail was sent out. I didn't wake up until 12:30, and they didn't mention that it was in Goudy anyway, so I went and looked in the UC and figured it had been shut down due to my excessive lateness. Now in the revised schedule they have me scheduled when I have class tomorrow... not just a little, almost complete overlap.

I feel pretty guilty, even though I don't think any of that is my fault. But I'm also irritated. I don't know.

Aaaah all the work/editing I've done for my piece for Creative Fiction (due this Tuesday) that I've done over the weekend has disappeared!

Who (or what) is your favorite fictional robot?

I'm going to have to go old-school on this one.



Maria is the grandmama of all evil robots. And most of the friendly ones. And she still freaking terrifies me.

I'm an aunt! Holy crap!!!

(I actually got the news around 5 AM this morning, but I took a moment to be shocked and then rolled over and went back to sleep.)

I told my parents about our broken microwave and my parents said we could use my sister's old one in the basement. I went and checked it out. It appears to work but is pretty dirty, makes strange smells, and has a semi-broken display that will probably make operation fairly bewildering. It's also pretty big, so I don't want to transport it unnecessarily. Do we want?
