The kind of good news that’s not.
Posted June 21, 2011on:
scrolling through the blog for the last few weeks, I’m not seeing much of my favorite thing: book reviews.
do I love books less? no!
do I love scifi or fantasy less? hell to the no!!
has my personal schedule gotten a little out of control lately? ummmm, yeah.
here’s the personal post I promised myself I would never put out there, but if the face of this blog is going to change, I want you to know why. because I’m a damn egotist, that’s why. And because this is my little corner of the infinite interwebs, and I can do whatever the hell I want with it.
Say it like you’re professor Farnsworth and your pants are pulled up to your armpits and you’ve already forgotten which drawer you put the doomsday device in: Good News Everybody!
bottom line, I got a promotion at my job. Yez, is soopah cool. Instead of being a one person on-site contractor running my own department (I got a TON of reading done, let me tell you!), I will now be training a full time assistant and supervising 5 other sites. Means I will be traveling. A lot. and micromanaging. a lot. And not farting around on twitter and wordpress and blog hopping and such. Because I’ve got to, like, be a good example of professionalism or some such. The silver lining is many evenings I’ll be stuck in hotel rooms with nothing to do, but read!
and for like the fifth year in a row I won’t be home on my birthday. I’m not a big birthday person, but spending your birthday with your boss is seriously not fun.
In the pipeline is a review of Catherynne Valente’s The Orphans Tales: In the Night Garden, some manga reviews, and I’m sure some other stuff. It is all really slow going right now.
I’m geeked/flattered/thrilled that I got a promotion. Good stuff on the career path is always happy making. But I’ve been so spoiled with so much time to read and blog and tweet and follow and everything, that’s it’s going to take some adjusting.
Will there still be book reviews? hell to the yeah!
will they be as often? hell to the not bloody likely.
and because i found this on twitter, here are some pictures of owls making funny faces. I seriously LOLz so hard at this I nearly pissed my pants. Yeah, I know, they are just owls, but I iz a city girl, and they makes me laugh.
