Lesson: don't go to school to laugh  
Can you believe I thought this line in the paper I read on humor and linguistics was the set-up to some sort of joke? "Lady [defined as] .... The triturating apparatus in the stomach of a lobster."

But it is not.

Academia is very funny. So are the people naming lobster apparati. Oh, and humor research isn't funny at all. It's srs bsns all the way.

So yeah, hey, I've been thinking about what I want to do with my life. The current list of career options is something like: artist, writer, graphic designer, teacher or professor (English, art, or film), mortician, curator, something to do with library science, narrating books on tape (I have a good reading/speaking voice, generally), video-editing/sound effects, or epic lemur adventurer.

Oh god, but I'm so fucking aimless.

Dudes, this is my cousin. I think. I think I also found her on facebook, but I don't want to freak her out.

This is really disjointed. I'm sorry, seriously, if you're still reading this. I know I disappear and shit, and I have a lot of reasons, but a lot of it is just dealing with medication and being ill and this all on top of real life. I'm trying to get some stability/consistency back in my life and so I've faded away from lj.

I'm sorry. :(

In that case, I'd better hop on this gravy train before it leaves the station!

Badum tiiish!

Yeah, the lemur stuff seems good to me, too.

And this is sort of random, but what is Dejan's last name? I'm filling out applications (ugh, strangle me) and I have no freaking idea. Argh.

Oh shit, okay... I want to say "Savic," but part of me thinks it has more letters in it. Like, uh, "Sajvic"? Holy crap, I'm really just guessing.

I can give you the phone number they're supposed to call and the code they can enter to get employment confirmation, if you don't have that...?

Yeah, that one with the "J" looks about right. I can always make it up as long as it's close. I was just sitting there staring at the wall and all that came to mind was "............Dejan..... Dejan?"

And the number stuff would be awesome. I never got that sort of thing because I left before the whole closing down fiasco. I doubt they'll call, since this is just a computer lab monitor, but good nonetheless.

Yeah, get it close enough and that should be okay. I'm not sure the J is in the right place, but it's probably close. :/

And the number I have is 1-800-367-5690, with the company code being 10554. And hopefully that'll work with you as well (I don't see why it wouldn't).
