I donated a prize for NaBloPoMo. The winners were all revealed this evening, none of which were Janie and she is very bitter about it. The blogger who won my prize is Esther from an illumination from glances. Congratulations!
Janie attended library school and graduated a year ago. She was offered interviews in California on several occasions, but since that time we saw that thing creeping across the road while on vacation, our life plans have changed and we no longer plan to move there. She’s going to be applying for librarian and other positions until someone realizes how bad-ass she is and insists on paying her so much money that I can stay home and watch my stories. We’ve decided to make the agonizing application process more fun so today we had an application party which consisted of me making potato skins and watching her drink gin and tonics. After getting nice and boozed up, Janie spent three hours working on job applications and cover letters while I made a roast duck.
The duck turned out well, but took a little longer than expected because I’m retarded and I left the package of giblets inside the bird for the first hour. Oops! When I finished my work, I came in and found her passed out and noticed several emails from local companies thanking her for her application. This was not what I expected, but I can’t complain. She offered herself up as the naughty librarian with promises to “shush you all night long.”
