Homework update for PaxDigita. And also because I got a shitload done this week and demand whuffles from the rest of you![More:] Outline on ethical implications of scope of practice, due Tuesday? DONE! Paper on conversion disorder and the brief therapeutic interventions who love it, due Thursday? DONE! Culturally sensitive case formulation of person with some sort of diagnosable mental health problem, due Thursday? DONE (mostly. Er, ok, not done, but only 2 pages of "personal reflection" left, so it's more or less done).

The entire semester? FIVE DAYS TILL DONE! WOO!
I'd whuffle you, but I smell real bad. So I'll just stand over here and applaud politely, yet with enthusiasm.

Yay, smelly whuffles from a distance!

I'll settle.

Belay my much later FPP above. Bravo Zulu (aw, hell, Google it) on work evolutions carried out smartly!


In other news, I had my first manager-type interview -- as opposed to Yet Another Meet 'N' Greet With Yet Another Recruiter (grrr) -- hey, recruiters are pipples too, but they're not who'll say "When can you start?" I'd hoped to find another business-analyst position and this is a technical-writing one, but it'd have benefits. Do you guys know how long it's been since I had benefits?? My son, now in middle school, was a first grader then.

I think I did OK in the interview despite not having written end-user documentation in over five years, but hopefully I conveyed OK that I've Been There and Done That & remember the moves. I've been a technical technical writer -- I like to autopsy developers' code and database tables -- and I think that's a plus for this job.

Mgr wanted to ponder interviews over the weekend, may have add'l interviews for all I know; the key question is what sort of "water walkers" I'm up against. Meanwhile I'm waiting to see whether I get called in for BA interviews -- my rez is on like seven different desks around town, so it's a function of how urgent people's needs are. Std by.


In other other news, AFAIK I am officially divorced a/o 1500Z20070509 and on war patrol. Er, available. Weirdly, I've already been invited to a "singles again" divorce-support dinner, so I need to bake spanakopita for like 20 people. I am not Greek but appreciate the cuisine; have purchased ingredients and scheduled accelerated mess-crank (Google that too) activity -- have looked at several recipes and averaged them. I hope it comes out OK; I haven't cooked much for anyone else in the last few years. And at my age, dating is a lot more like interviewing for a job than anything else, but a group setting like this helps to keep expectations appropriately low. Like, non-existent. So, if I remember not to get my hopes up, I can only be pleasantly surprised.

1n another 15, time to rack out and get in a dawn-patrol speedmarch! Woo hoo!

Good luck, Pax. It sounds like there's forward movement, which is always a good thing.
