I just realized something.

I'm happy with my current job. Not deliriously-happy-dream-job-i-feel-fulfilled-as-an-individual happy, but reasonably happy. I don't hate it. And I know tons of people who do hate their jobs. Right now, the only thing I could see that would make me leave is if I got fired, if I got something that did fulfill my career dreams, or if I was to find something at least as good as this for more money.

I kinda feel bad saying this. I know so many people who are miserable at their jobs, so many people miserable at my company, and so many people who are miserable in this very department. But there isn't much I can do about that. I'd like to make more money, or get paid for knitting and surfing the internet, or painting with oil paints, or buying gel pens, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon.

I've had a lot of things I want to write about, but I don't think I'll get around to them yet. I was thinking about writing about Matt's grandfather's funeral, and my stepsister's upcoming baby shower, but I think I'll just try to ride out my job satisfaction, and not bring myself down yet. I also wanted to write about lost things, like bummy's tea cup and my necklaces, but that will make me cry. Instead, I'll write...

Just how much body jewelry does it take to set off a metal detector at a post - 9/11 airport security check? I've had this ring for, oh, 5 years now, and I really don't want to remove it. But I also don't want to have to have that conversation with the security guard, either. "Yes Sir, that's just body jewelry. Uh, Ma'am are you sure you want me to tell you where? I'll walk through the X-Ray jobby, or go out back for a strip if you insist," all the time in front of Matt's horrified parents. Hmmm. I had the brilliant idea to buy a new piece of jewelry, like some of that lucite stuff and get it switched. I would need a 12 guage 1/2" hoop. I'm also not amused at going to a piercing place and saying, "Hi, I have a captive bead ring hoop that I can't undo myself; can you switch my jewelry for me?" But I have to to figure, if at 18 years and 3 days old I could walk up to a strange, pierced, tattoed man and say, "Yes, I'd like a vertical hood piercing, please," I can do this.
