The last week, and the weekend, were filled with calls, meetings, questions, answers and negotiations, but the end result has been worth it. Beginning January 2nd, I have a job doing blog stuff and helping to edit other stuff, and writing still other stuff for the company my former boss owns.
I never worked for that company, as I was in his mortgage brokerage, instead, but we talk from time to time, and we trust each other, and he lets me have nearly complete autonomy, which is cool.
And between now and then? I’m delighted to have my own version of Christmas vacation, to get the house ready for the parents, finish some fiction projects, do some baking, and practice a lot of mime – space and object work – and, oh yeah, I play at ComedySportz at least once each weekend between now and the end of the year (12/09, 12/15, 12/16, 12/22, and 12/30), as well as having Lessons and Carols at church on the 17th.
It’s really too bad I’m not busy, or anything.
If only DFW had Trader Joe’s and BevMo, I’d be almost completely happy.
