Went a-huntin' for a job today. O woe is me.

Printed up my résumé all prettyfied, and got myself gussied up in my new clothes and hit the local temp agencies.

Manpower was first, where the woman seemed impressed and said I presented myself well, but said I may be "too hairy" for some offices, and the job market's flat right now. Whatever. I was still in their system, and she said it only said good things about my performance at previous job placements.

Kelly Services was next, where I got back on the active list, and got the contact info for the Kelly Tech office in Seattle.

Then I went to Express Personnel, filled out one an application, and handed it in with my résumé. The lady was impressed with my résumé presentation. She said they'd call me Wednesday to set up an interview.

Which is great, except that means I had to email Bruce and tell him I couldn't go with him to American Ridge Wednesday. I hafta be a grown-up. Whine whine whine.

Andreas (aka Strngelove) emailed me this photo he took of me, Haltia, Whoretense and SadieDog at the Shadow Falls campground in B.C. last week.
I'm back from Bellingham's 2nd annual Gay Pride Parade, and what a wonderful day it was. The weather was perfect: warm and sunny, but not too hot.

We assembled at Bellingham High School, and I stripped down to my skivvies and had people paint my body day-glo with finger paint (I supplied rubber gloves to keep hands clean). It was really tribal, and I had fun (even if a drag queen did graffiti on my back... ;-)

I walked with the Faeries... Whoretense wore a fabulous flower print mini dress and her dog Sadie walked too, [livejournal.com profile] teledildonix in chaps, Rick in a most amazing pair of metal mesh and leather wings, Bruce in his bow tie, and even Ted in his wheelchair!

We marched to the Depot Market, and we even had bible-worshipping protesters along the route this year! We've arrived! (Last year, we just got ignored.)

And me, once again I debuted a new Scruffy Rumbler outfit, a skirt made only of neckties! I was amazing. Lots of people took pictures of me. And I got cruised by a really cute guy in the marching band. *sigh* If only I had been able to give him my card :-(

I'll post/link pictures as soon as they're available!
