Not fit for human comsumption...
I've had the plague.
Well, I suppose it was more a cold with plague-like tendencies. It started about 10 days ago or so and has been, I must say, the worst most disgusting cold I've ever had. Fun. Anyway, it's a good thing I'm not working right now, because I'm not sure I could have. It was that bad. It even kept me away from my computer, that's saying something.
I had a job interview last Saturday and they decided to go with the other applicant. I really suck at interviews, though I'm certain that the spectacular coughing fit that came over me in the middle of it didn't win me any points. It was that sort of cough you try to fight, to somehow swallow, but that somehow only makes it 10-times worse when you finally do unleash it. Once I got it under control again (as controlled as possible without water or tissues), I'm sure I looked a mess and getting out of there was all I could think of. I'm sure I made a great impression... *sighs* I'm starting to lose my confidence about finding something, I mean, I thought I'd at least be working a temp job by now. The thing is, the area I live in is a beach community, so there are lots of people here and not so many jobs, so people are willing to work for less when they do get one. I like to think that's the problem, competition and a dearth of available jobs, rather than I suck and no one wants me. Maybe we'll move back to the other side of the state, where our families are - it's something we've talked about since Sparky's mom died, but in terms of a few years. Bigger city, not so tourist-y, lots more jobs. I just don't know.
Fandom-wise, I considered the Snarry-a-thon over at snape_potter, but none of the prompts jumped out at me and I haven't even a tiny grain of an idea of my own. I do have a Harry/Draco idea, but it doesn't fit any of the prompts over at hd_smoochfest, though I haven't checked the list in a while. Maybe I'll just write it myself, though I kinda need the deadlines. (I have a Neville fic I started years ago and have no hope of finishing.) We'll see. I'll probably just wait until it's too late then I won't have a choice - the rewards of procrastination.
