This Avalanche, I'm Not Afraid


And it's been a while...again. I have some earlier posts and ideas written during the Christmas season (and before) that I probably need to put down on here. But honestly, being unemployed for so long generated fewer interesting stories than you'd think. I'm happier having a job and not so much free time than I am with the converse.

After much searching, I managed to land a job at a local wine retailer who shall go nameless for the moment. I've had bad experiences coming out and naming the places I work--even when everything I said was positive--so I think I'd rather this one remain anonymous for now. Perhaps I will give it a whimsical and amusing name later, but only if I'm feeling particularly creative. Right now I feel more particularly tired than anything else. However, that could be a function of the massive tasting we did today. Many, many representatives from wine distribution companies came in all through the afternoon and we sampled their various, and sometimes multitudinous, wares. Luckily--or, rather, unluckily--we have to spit while working, so there was no on-the-job drunkenness.

Rather unfortunate, in retrospect, but oh well.

Anyway, I'm planning on updating Half the Bottle Down sometime this week, as working at the Unnamed Retailer (I told you I wasn't feeling particularly creative) will no doubt provide me with a lot of good material. Until then.



(I'm still flying.)

Congradulations! For many of us who often tie our identity to our profession, long stretches of unemployment can be extremely stress.

Thus, 2008 has started well.. May it truly continue!

Indeed, they are wearing--but they make the times when you are gainfully employed in a job you love all the sweeter.

Thanks for the wishes. They are reciprocated and then some.
