k00kaburra.

I now have two receptionist jobs, and they are awesome.

I started my second job yesterday. (As a testament to how hectic it's been, I haven't updated in forever. Oops!)

THIS NEW JOB IS SO SLOW!
It's awesome. I've finished reading a novel (Darkness at Noon by Arthur Koestler, very dramatic and intense) now I'm sitting around drinking tea and watching teenagers set up for a surprise birthday party.


It's awesome. I can't believe I get paid so much just to show up at 8, unlock some tennis courts and then lounge around. I know it's only my first day, so in later weeks I'll have projects to work on so there won't be so much free time, but seriously? This is the best job ever.


Did I mention how happy my book-geek-self is that there's a mini-library in the Clubhouse? My manager doesn't mind if I do homework when it's slow, or read books, or if I had a laptop I could watch Youtube all day. Now if only I could convince the Board of Directors to let me go swimming in the pool or play shuffleboard and billiards.


Whatever. It's still the best job ever.
