I have a phone interview with an(other) archaeology firm tomorrow. (!!!) I have already quizzed M (who works there) about what I should be saying and what I should expect (both from the interview and the type of work they do). I'm optimistically terrified. So think good thoughts for me tomorrow afternoon (PST)!

Some other thoughts to keep myself from brooding:

- I don't like the latest update of iTunes. The reason I started using iTunes was that I found it really intuitive, and the way they changed things around this update has ballsed it up (IMO). So I thinking about switching over to using Zune more, since I have to use it for my phone too. But figuring out new software is annoying. And I do still have an iPod. Blagh.

- I need a book to bring with me to work. I want to read Tanya Huff's The Silvered because I got it for Christmas and haven't started it yet. But I don't want it to get any butter on it. Because it is a nice book and a massive hardcover. I wish it was out in paperback so I could just grab a cheap copy. Bah.

Also, picking books for reading at work is hard because it has to be something I actually want to read, but also something that I don't feel weird reading in front of co-workers. - This might be lingering issues from that awful summer job I had where my coworkers were rude and bullied me about reading Stranger in a Strange Land because it was an old '70s SciFi cover so it looked really wacky.

- I went to yoga yesterday for the first time in a while. And it felt really good, although my muscles know I was working them today. I was sure that I would need to spend most of the class in child's pose (resting), but turns out that I'm not in as bad shape as I thought I was. I have been playing hockey though, and it's interesting that I can feel which muscles are hockey muscles because those poses are much easier for me than even some of the "easier" poses that don't use hockey muscles.

- I really want to do more writing, but I'm terrible without deadlines. I've figured out that I need to finish my Teen Wolf fic before Season 3 starts in June because it's a pre-series story and I know from spoilers that they're doing a flashback episode. I'm torn between being super excited to see the canon Hale family and a little sad that they aren't going to be the same as the Hale family that's been hanging out in my head for the past few months.

And the other day I picked up a Star Trek XI fic I started years ago and wrote a couple of scenes because they were just in my head. I have no idea why since, while I'm excited for the new movie, I haven't been reading any fic or even watching any of the other Treks. Whatever, as long as I'm writing I don't really care.

Random person on the internet wonders in regards to reading at work, perhaps a book cover? There are cloth ones the size of paperbacks and "I don't want to get butter on the cover" could be a good line.

That would make butter take some avoiding, I imagine!

I read some of your journal a while back tracking down Yuletide prompts I believe. (Am not actually sure I could manage to ride anything based on Tanya Huff's works, but I do like reading others ideas.)

Reading is good, writing is good, phone interviews are eep!

I read at lunch at work, and for the first month I always took mystery books from the library and when people came in to use the microwave each of them asked once what I was reading and nobody's ever asked again. So now I'm reading a Mercedes Lackey with goopy non-representative art on the cover, but nobody's asked. Hah.

Also, someone pointed me at a source of what looks like very bad romance/erotica/porn sorted for having Canadian themes (one with a polar bear shapeshifter for example, and several with mounties) and I bought a few for the kobo, including one promising steamy locker room scenes between two male hockey players, but unfortunately my kobo cable is missing so I cannot tell you whether I had the nerve to read them at work.
