I'm at home today, thanks to my ridiculous new work schedule. I think my boss may have had some ill-conceived idea about specifying which three days per week I'll work, but I nipped that in the bud. The way I see it, I'm calling the shots here. This week, he gets Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I had told him last week that in light of the price of gas weighed against my loss of income, I'd be working from home. I changed my mind about that. Who in her right mind would want to hang around here all day, every day?
No nibbles yet from any of the editorial feelers I've put out. I am, however, toying with the idea of plunging into the business on my own.
I should by now be wise in the ways of bad mojo. God knows I've seen enough of it. Of course, I know what's going on here, and don't think I don't. There's a full moon Friday night, that's what. A heaping portion of nasty gris-gris in such close proximity to a full moon can produce nothing but bad mojo. It's been my experience that these things come in threes, too. I'm just waiting to see what falls on my head next. On the plus side, I got a tax refund check yesterday. With all the weirdness going on, it wouldn't surprise me if the check bounces.
I'm afraid to say anything else, so why don't we just beat the hell out of some Words Gone Wild?
