Here I am again, saying useless things.

But you guys like reading my useless things, right?  I figure you must if you're reading this.  I recently gave the link to the sister-in-law cause I was unhappy and she wanted to talk but I don't like talking on the phone so I figured hell, I'll let her read what's been on my mind lately.  That lead to the brother-figure also reading this........nnnooottt what was intended, but hey, the more the merrier right?

It's fine.  If anyone in the family would be understanding, or at least shrug off the odd things I say, think, and do it would be my brother... and vicariously through him the sister-in-law (I hope).

I can't really tell you I had any reason for this post, just as I had no reason for the last two.  I guess I'm just feeling chatty?  Restless?  Who knows.  What I DO know is that I'm making good strides on my current project of choice.  In an attempt to beat Lydia at the NaKniSweMo competition we wrangled ourselves into, I've started the first sleeve.  But the increases on the ribbing are really boggling my mind, you just can't increase the way the pattern says and have it stay a 1x1 rib.  I don't really want to but I think I may have to alter where the increases go just to make it work.  Not sure yet cause I haven't done them.

Hmm... not a lot else going on in life at the moment.  Really itching to get my sewing machine fixed cause I have some good Christmas flannel that I wanna make a skirt out of.  I saw this thing on Etsy that's a Victorian bustle inspired skirt and I really want to try and replicate it, it was super cute.

In the mean time, I'm still waiting to find a permanent job, hoping this Broadcom thing works out ASAP, having no money to get Christmas presents this year..... again.  I swear to Sagan that one of these years the family folk are gonna get BOMB X-mas presents from me to make up for the.. oh..  15 YEARS of the nothing at all I've gotten you. 

Damn... those presents are gonna have to be super bomb, aren't they?

I think I just trapped myself into knitting everyone a gift next year.  >.<

.... three posts for three days in a row, that's lucky, right?

Boredom

Yup, I'm posting out of boredom.  I don't think I ever mentioned it but I'm now signed up officially with a temp agency called AppleOne.  They're a temp agency with a very good reputation and they're known for not calling back everyone who tries to sign up.  Somewhat picky I guess, which is good for me because I got called back in September and I'm one of their employees.  My account manager is a very kind girl named Jen and she found me this really good assignment with a local major corporation, Broadcom. 

They make semi-conductors.

While I only know in laymen terms what a semi-conductor does, I DO know that I am in love with this company.  Professional people, calm atmosphere... an HR department!!  I most definitely highly value HR departments after that last debacle someone calls a job...

I have come to the realization that as much as I enjoy the intimacy and personal interest in small businesses, I am most definitely a corporate girl.  I like the anonymity, the knowledge that the business isn't going to just up and fail, knowing that policies won't change frivolously from one day to the next, that the boss can't directly scare off the customers while asking me why I'm not running through the parking lot to get them back to give us twenty dollars after they just ranted to me about how they will never come back again because of how they were just treated by that man....

Did I mention I enjoy having an HR department?

It's a really good assignment, with very good pay.  I'm currently waiting for some upward movement to get underway there because the word around the soda fridge (Free drinks for employees! That includes temps!) is that there will be a full-time reception position open soonish.

And according to Jen, it's very impressive that they keep asking for me to come back and cover shifts.  This makes me a happy Bon.

It's nice to feel appreciated, even if it's only temporary.
