update

Hello, hello. Feels like I've been neglecting LJ even though I still read my f-list. So, here's an update.

~~ Still unemployed. Should find out about one possibility tomorrow (the decision keeps getting pushed back, so annoying). Also, have come to the depressing realization after spending almost 3 months reading job ads and interviewing... I think I'm best suited for work in public practice *headdesk* If the aforementioned job doesn't pan out, I'll be expanding the job search into public accounting but, like before, no big firms.

~~ Spent the weekend with my visiting cousin & her 10 y.o. daughter, Ling. Saturday was Centre Island. Well, it was just Centreville (the kids amusement park). We never made it to anywhere else. I rode the ferris wheel with Ling and I felt queasy afterwards. Wow, I am getting old. Sunday was the Toronto Zoo. Bad day to go cause it was so bloody hot. 30C + humidex, it was pushing 40C. After Ling spent 20 mins touching the stingrays and another 20 mins ooohing & ahhhing over the polar bears, she was ready to go. You know it's hot when my born-and-bred Taiwanese cousins are remarking about the heat.

~~ I discovered that the AC in the car wasn't working back in June but it wasn't really needed so I let it slide. Yeah, that sucker is getting fixed this Wednesday. Thank goodness my friend's boyfriend is a mechanic so he's getting me a deal. Still going to cost a pretty penny though.

~~ Chopped off about 4 inches of hair today. My annual haircut, done.

~~ Matt Nathanson concert was fantastic. Good news, he's working on his next album. Bad news, he has no idea when it'll be done.

~~ OLTL and the Kish SL just keeps getting better. Today, we got a small glimpse of Jealous!Oliver when he sees Kyle is ready to move on without him i.e. chatting up a hot guy. Can't wait til tomorrow's ep!! and that's how sad my life has become lol

And yeah, that's basically it.

Keep 'em crossed. Still no answer. I don't know what they're doing over there.

Good luck with the interview! We're having the same heat-wave here and it really sucks :-/

I *do* have a good Christian/Oliver fic to rec you: http://rhiannonhero.livejournal.com/1575005.html?style=mine

I'm so out of the loop on OLTL I have no idea who those people even are.

Thanks for the Christian/Olli fic rec! I've only read a couple of fics and you know what? I guess cause I'm so used to watching the show in German, it's a bit strange to read a fic in English.

As for OLTL, Kyle Lewis and Oliver Fish are fairly new characters. They've both been part of other SL's but this is their first major SL.

Sorry, I gave you the wrong link! It's here at her fic journal

http://rhihero-fic.livejournal.com/tag/verboteneliebe

The story is finished but she's posting one part at a time, I believe it's 7 parts. It's a damn good story :-)

Also, the fic I mean is 'Here's looking at you kid', though there are other Christian/Oliver stories on that tag.

Okay, so is OLTL the one with Tim from One Tree Hill on it? Because it's always on when I'm on the treadmill at the gym, and I keep catching myself reading the subtitles (I don't have a radio to tune into the right station). I think I saw the scene you're talking about!!

Yes it is! I watched some of the Tim clips on YT and wow, did Brett Claywell look young! He's doing a great job on OLTL, totally bringing the angst which I love.

Hey, it's a couple of days after you wrote this: what's the word on the job? (I didn't see you post about anything subsequent so I assume it fell through...?) Or maybe you haven't heard back yet?

Also: I love the idea of an annual haircut! :D

The job is still up in the air. Talked to the agent this afternoon and hopefully, this will all be resolved one way or another by next week.

I'm so lazy. I usually end up cutting my hair in the summer to combat the heat and then just let it grow out for the rest of the year.
