    Writing update: If this were Nanowrimo, I have succeeded. Wrote 50k in the past 26 days for Zero Requiem.

    But the work is half done.

    You were expecting a 6.66 GPA, weren't you?

    My goulash would like a word with you.

    Since it is the season, I can also recommend grilling some of the vegetables, bell peppers in particular. You can either stuff them or put them on the grill by themselves. Or if you want to have some meat with them, make some shashlik.

    Never tried goulash before. I'll have to give it a go at some point.

    I really like bell peppers stuffed with goats cheese. It's indulgent as fuck, but oh so good.

    TOMD:

    Remember that? I just got an email saying that “circumstances had changed” and they’d found someone for the permanent position, so no internship either.

    Great.

    Ah, sorry to hear that dude. But since they already offered the position to you, are they even legally allowed to retract it?

    No idea, tbh. I’ll talk it over with my parents in person later today, because my mother is reasonably well-versed in these things and see what can be done.

    The way we talked about it last week was that I’d do the internship first, and if all parties liked what they saw we’d talk about a permanent full-time position. I didn’t sign anything, but I would argue that there was an oral agreement to do the paid internship.

    I would also like to add that I haven’t replied to their email yet to keep my options open.

    It's extremely bad form, so name and shame. Unfortunately, a corporation has no obligation to honor any agreement when you haven't even signed a contract. They can withdraw their offer at any given time for any reason. I'm very sorry this happened, it's an incredibly shitty thing and absolutely not your fault. You don't want to work somewhere where they do this sort of thing. It's really quite terrible behaviour.

    Try Mendeley for citations. There's also a few others, but that's my personal favorite.

    A customer came to pick up a parcel that he'd had delivered to our office today. Unfortunately, either he or the company he'd ordered from made a mistake, because rather than being dropped off as a customer collect parcel, it was given to us as part of our mail, so we opened it. He wasn't thrilled to discover that all the staff knew about the butt plug and fluffy handcuffs he'd bought, and I suspect he won't be a repeat customer...

    Nope, just told him to be more careful picking his mailing options in future. Although to be fair to him, I did wonder whether it was the company, not him, as it's not the first time this has happened - the last time, I had to explain to a woman that yes, we had seen her double-ended dildo.

    Latest in my adventures with shared living: my housemate eats a packet of 20 bourbon biscuits almost every day. Seriously, at least 4 days a week.

    I've got twenty packets of twenty for less than a fiver thanks to the wonders of Asda's own brand products. Some kind of prank is definitely in the works.

    Potential ideas: build a jenga tower out of bourbon on the countertop and leave for him to find. Hide biscuits everywhere in his rooms, in all his coat pockets, inside his shoes, inside his motherfucking socks. Gather up a few people, hide inside a room, then pelt him from point blank range with all 400 biscuits.

    I'm open to suggestions if anyone has something to donate.

    TIL Otters lives inside

    Anyway i've had a some what hectic week, finishing up everything at school and getting ready for graduation, and working on applying to a state college nearby, kinda happy I'm able to actually still get in. Anyway, also been tossing around an idea for a fic, that may or may not get written up. Best to consider Loughleagh abandoned.

    One day, some of us will have to lie to a documentary film team and say the signs weren't there, and we had no way to see it coming. You terror.

    A arrange the bourbons in the shape of a cat. Then simply leave this friendly note in Gingerbread Man blood:

    TOMD: Finished the last chapter of the first part of my story at 61k words in 31 days. This is the most words I've ever pumped out in such a short amount of time (the closest ever being 30k in 30 days back in 2014). I'm a bit sad I'm going to have to cut this short in order to study for my CFA2 coming up next month, but hopefully I'll be able to pick this pace back up when I finish.

    I'm not saying there's a correlation with the GoT episodes dropping, but this does seem fishy...
