Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself

James Bond and his penis (or possibly phallus?) will have to wait a little longer. I got a job! Finally, after being out of school for just over a year, I have managed to become employed by somebody other than Civic. I'm going to start working at a flower shop in my neighborhood on Monday. I imagine flowers are not, so to speak, lily-white in terms of human rights and environmental issues, but for somebody who was desperately starting to wonder if working at Borders (or, god forbid, Starbucks) could be all that bad I'm feeling a little less righteous than I might otherwise be. Besides, since I've come to terms with the fact that I have to be employed somewhere and soon, I've realized that I could come up with something awful that was linked to practically every place I considered applying, at least the ones I had a chance in hell of actually getting hired at. At least I'm not working at the tanning place, and I can stop having nightmares about fruitless job hunts.
While I'm on consumerism etc., I must mention that I'm also on that Blockbuster Total Access thing, so I can rent as many movies as I want every month. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Have you seen "My Life Without Me"? I really like that movie. Did I ever show you "Baraka" when I was on my show-everyone-Baraka kick? If not, that's also a must.

Congrats on the job!!

Heh.
