That's right, I've gotten BUSY! Yay?!
I'm an employed woman these days. Which, sadly, feels almost as exciting as the days when I would blow my paychecks on beer and handbags. Sigh. Maybe I should think about scheduling an extra session with my therapist.
ANYway...I guess I don't technically have the job yet, because I'm still in training. It is paid training, however, so it kind of counts. And it's sure as hell going to give me more than your measly Google-ad-clicking has. (But no, really, I'm very appreciative!)
After reading all these training manuals, however, I'm kind of getting the vibe that I'm working for some subversive, powerful bastards.

I can't really talk about my job because it's an ONLINE JOB and they're totally already running a background check, and if I'm lucky enough for them to skim over those dodgy months in Alabama, then I shouldn't ALSO think that they couldn't find my blog (because they're technical wizards and I'm NOT ANONYMOUS) and thusly FIRE me, hurdling my plight and writing talents to the headlines of CNN.com.
That's why people get online jobs, isn't it? Wish me luck.
