The irony of my failure to keep updating this journal as planned is that in the past week or so I've actually had interesting things to post about. The first is my 35-hour mini trip to the Bay Area this past weekend to see Flight of the Conchords perform at the Berkeley Greek Theatre. The second is that I start a new job tomorrow after several months of unemployment. It's not glamorous, and it certainly doesn't pay well, but it's something. Because I didn't have any appropriate work clothes, my sister (who also starts a new job next week) and I went shopping today. The funny thing is that both of us have difficulty finding clothes that fit--she's too small to fit most straight sizes, and I'm too big. Luckily we were both able to find some things, and she made me laugh when she said she was really hoping to find some black heels that didn't have Dora the Explorer on them.
