Survived my first day at work. XD Augh but getting there was a hassle though. I left early with the intention of getting the early bus - except it was late, which meant I missed my second bus and then in turn, missed the third. -_- Then when I finally got on to the bus that would get me to the industrial estate, I ended up having to walk the long way around to get to it. I got there just in time, all the same, but it was still annoying.
I'm not the only one starting though, which is a bit of a relief. I have someone to talk to when it gets too boring or when we're on a break. ^^; It's pretty dull but it could be worse. And it's work.
Also took me until this morning to get through to the jobcentre to sign off this morning. >.< God, but that was irritating. And then I was put on hold for a while... I ended up signing off about fifteen minutes before I had to leave the house. Not particularly happy about that but at least I finally got through. I get my last payment off them this week, thankfully. I'm pretty much down to my last pennies. What I get from them should last me until I get paid and then... well, we'll see. This isn't going to last too long - I have no real hopes or expectations of getting a permanant job out of this and I'm not sure I would take it even if there was. ^^; Maybe if I didn't need to catch three buses to get there, I would but... I want something a little easier to get to.
Anyway~ Have a meme~ I yoinked it from moggy1644
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.T
here was a newcomer in the village. New people were always a source of interest and speculation among the Them, but this time Pepper had impressive news.
'She's moved into Jasmine Cottage and she's a witch,' she said. 'I know because Mrs Henderson does the cleaning and she told my mother she gets a witches newspaper. She gets loads of ordinary newspapers, too, but she gets this special witches' one.'
'My father says there's no such thing as witches,' said Wensleydale, who had fair, wavy hair and peered seriously out at life through thick, black rimmed spectacles. It was widely believed that he had once been christened Jeremy, but no one ever used the name, not even his parents, who called him Youngster.
- From Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It was literally right next to the monitor, from when I last checked details before posting Aziraphale's app at The Wake. XD
I tag... ffff... whoever wants to do it, I guess? XD
