“I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done.”
Luke and Vangie came to Worcester yesterday. It was lovely to see them both, and while we were sitting around the apartment talking after a lunch at the Sahara (I recommend the Port Saied Chicken and the Hummos sandwich), they suggested checking out some flash animations. Because part of the nature of a blog is to share these things, I simply must link to them:
1. EPIC 2014: a serious flash asking, Could this be our future?
2. Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me: Sad bunny
3. Magical Trevor: Cows (beans beans lots of beans)
4. Magical Trevor 2: Pigeons (look at the mess in Aisle 2)
5. Magical Trevor 3: Chinchillas (gets out the petrol and gives it a soak)
These are well worth the 10 minutes they take to watch. Go, click and enjoy!
Update: I am having a hard time adjusting to break. Fortunately, I am easing into a less stressed life slowly since this Advisory Board speech still looms large before me. I have spent the day alternately saying my speech aloud (it takes between 5 and 6 minutes to give) and looking for jobs. I found a job with ERG (yes, I know it sounds like a bowel movement or a frustrated fat man) that sounds right up my alley:
We are seeking versatile, highly motivated science writers to research and write documents on a wide range of environmental and health topics. Science or engineering degree and strong written and verbal communication skills are essential.
The only downside is that the job is in Lexington, MA. Although in fact that may be an upside, since Ian has a compelling possible job at Raytheon in Sudbury. This is the first job listing I have seen that sounds really compelling, and I keep getting my hopes up that they might want me. Then I try to squelch those hopes, because I expect to hear nothing. But it sounds like they wrote that job description for me, honestly. Gah! Gah! Gah! It actually sounds fun, interesting, and I get excited just thinking about doing that type of work. But they probably won’t get back to me. Why would they? Gah! Gah! Gah! So hopefully they’ll respond to my email within two weeks, because that’s how long Ian has to make his Raytheon choice.
But at least I know there are jobs out there that don’t require css, Java, or xml skills I don’t have – which nearly all the Tech Writer jobs I’ve seen demand. There is hope…
