Well, I didn't see anyone actually living in it, but I did see Yellow Submarine for the very first time.
Strange film. Lovely film for being strange, really.
Seeing the soda bottle marked "Fizz" elicited a snicker from me.
relsqui was kind enough to make dinner (Farfalle with a cabernet marinara). I was kind enough to pour kiwi-strawberry juice for myself and a glass of milk for her.
One annoying bug of a two story house is that downstairs tends to get cold quickly.
The upshot of that is after you've gotten adjusted to downstairs and cuddling under a cold blanket, we return upstairs into the the sauna created in my room by two computers running and the door and window shut tight.
Really, really lovely 8)
I had a brief moment of depression and despair this afternoon. As I had begun to suspect, the job in Seaside is going to someone else. I have to drive down there tomorrow to pick up my check for the work I did on their systems. Bleah.
It was so bad that no amount of game playing or book reading could quite bring me out of it. So I did the logical thing and napped.
I hadn't meant to actually sleep, but apparently I did, for I awoke refreshed to relsqui returning.
Well, no problem with that in my book 8)
I've applied to a couple billion more jobs. Maybe one of 'em'll turn out? I got a strange questionaire from UCSC marked with a job # for an application that I apparently sent out. It's the standard race/gender/yadda demographics thing. It's been a long time since I applied for that job and didn't get anything indicating a negative.
So, maybe that's a positive? I'll keep looking for those four-leaf clovers just in case.

THREE computers. My poor forgotten Underground. :)
Mf, my poor sweetheart. I'm glad I didn't manage to wake you (though I did I good bit of trying).
You make it sound like I cooked, love, when in fact I boiled water and poured sauce out of a jar. But I DO use all fresh love--maybe that's what you were tasting.
We will see what happens with current prospects, but you will get a job, and simple optimism makes me think that will be sooner rather than later. Remember what happened last time you despaired about it--two calls in a day, a third shortly thereafter, and now this one from UCSC (which is essentially a pre-interview callback... can you claim Native American heritage on this one?). That's Fate hitting you over the head with a fish and saying to be patient, at least in my interpretation.
Meanwhile, sweetness, I will enjoy all the leisurely hours we get to spend doing nothing but each other.
I can claim Native American heritage, but that's not a callback. It's just them being interested in the demographics of their applicants. It's also optional.
the working world will bend to your will, phil! it will be so!

Re: all da best
I can't find a picture (although I can find numerous references to sightings), but there exists a Volkswagen Beetle with the license plate "FEATURE"
That makes me happy.

Re: all da best
I was thinking that as I wrote the entry. While I was downstairs, it was a bug. When we came back upstairs, it was sooooooo a feature 8)

Re: all da best
I always think of it as a feature. If you're too hot, you can go cool off in the basement (in my case). And if it's too cold out, go sit in the attic.
