Time... what is time?

I ask myself that quite often these days as my sense of time continues to deteriorate. Weekdays and weekends blur together as the calendar inches towards the new year. It's strange when you don't have someplace to be every weekday around 9am. Sure, there's the occasional doctor or dentist appointment, but overall I am having a tough time remembering what day it is, let alone what time it is.

Engineering Love?

Engineers seem to be drawn to date me. I find this fascinating and often wonder what it is about me that they find appealing. Not that I'm getting down on myself. I'm just seeing a pattern and am curious about that.

Keeping fingers crossed

I had a decent phone interview the other day with an educational organization that's doing some interesting stuff in the NY area. The HR person said that she plans to pass along my stuff to the department head.

I've often volunteered my marketing and media skills to help non-profit organizations, and if they want to pay me and give me health insurance, I'm hardly in a position to say no. It'd be an interesting change of pace from working in the media industry proper. But I don't want to get ahead of myself and get excited about such a nascent thing.

My large, clean studio is available for sublet immediately. There is a queen sized sleigh bed and full cable access. You would be required to care for my pet Siberian Tiger, who is generally friendly.
Zoo/veternarian related experience preferred, but not necessary.
