I am here!

Day 2 of the job. The lady I work with is trying to be super nice and not overwhelm me with a bunch of stuff all at once but I think I might need her to. I mean, I was ORGANIZING the office today. On my second day. I cleaned. I made copies. I put together some welcome packets. I only had to answer the phone 3 or 4 times. It's almost like they're paying me to do nothing.

Btw, when I met with her the first time (before I got the job) she told me to bring a book for the slow times. I brought my Kindle but I'm not quite comfortable enough with what I'm doing to lounge around and read yet. Instead I checked Twitter on my phone and played Sudoku. Because that's so much better.

If I need to delude myself that being paid to read on my first week on the job is doable, I can always pretend that people think my Kindle is a computer tablet like they used in Star Trek. What? It kinda looks like one.

Okay. Books.
Book #54 - Bitter Night (Horngate Witches #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis - Another book in the urban fantasy genre that was fun and fast. It's currently free over at Pocket After Dark (until 2/14, I think). You have to read it on the computer, but it's totally doable. Heck, I did it.
Book #55 - The Bite of Silence (Biting Love #2.5) by Mary Hughes - Umm ... I think I would have understood what was going on a little better if I had read the first 2 books in the series.

Okay. I am done.
Later.

lol! Yes, I've heard others say this around the internet. That when they hold their kindle (or iPad) they feel like Captain Picard in his ready room reviewing something on his PADD. I do think that the idea for iPad and Kindle came from Star trek though. It wouldn't be the first time Star Trek influenced real science.

As for your job, glad it's going OK even if it is a bit boring at times. It will pick up I'm sure as you are there longer. :)
