today i am celebrating columbus day with this letter:
Dear Ms. Walter:
You applied for the position of Library Circulation Desk Assistant (part-time) at blah blah Community College. While the college received a number of applications, the search process has been completed and a candidate was selected for the position.
We will keep your application on file for one (1) year. You may review our open positions by visiting our website at blah blah.edu, and contact us if you wish to have your application activated for any advertised searches.
If you have any questions or wish to apply for another position, please do not hesitate to contact me at blah blah.edu.
i am still 99% sure i landed another job. though most people would say that it isn't the kind of job a woman in her late 30's with a college degree should have. but you know what, fuck 'em.
dan is at work like a good non-supporter of this holiday. tashi is coloring and talking to herself. i am wrapped in a towel, having recently stepped out of the shower. luna is clinking about in her big shiny red heart shaped name tag. loki is asleep on the nearby futon. he snores.
here is a petition you can sign if you think there should be federally paid "native american day" holiday, rather than columbus day. and check out the good voices of some native americans here.
our goal today is to figure out if tashi should be aphrodite, athena or artemis for halloween.
