Not you lot, but these shoes.

Off with the old Rockports, on with the new Doc Martens, in preparation for my new job. 'cuz, after all, there's noe biz like shoe biz! Also, have some Sam Vimes. )

So now it's time to get rid of these old shoes. As you can see, I pretty much wore them to bits. This is the longest time I've ever owned a pair of shoes, I think, and after all this time it almost feels like I should be giving them some kind of funeral.

New job starting Thursday…and apartment-hunting travails. )

So, anyway, got me some butterflies.

Well, yesterday was an eventful day.

My adventures from here to the northeast end of Indianapolis and back, and the obtaining of a job! )

Anyway, that's the story of my adventures yesterday. Looking forward with trepidation to this coming Monday. It's going to be a different, possibly difficult experience getting back into the harness…but this time it's finally going to be a job that makes full use of my talents. I can hardly wait.

Greetings from the "Business Center" of the Westport Sheraton.

How yesterday and this morning went. )

After the interview, I went over to the Panera Bread (or is it still called St. Louis Bread Company up here in St. Louis? For some reason, I seem to remember it being SLBC still, but not sure) across the way and had a souffle for breakfast. Called my friend [ profile] tbutler, who's working at his company's office in St. Louis at the moment. Turns out he's only about 3 miles or so away from my present location, though since I'm on foot at the moment I'm doubtful I could do anything toward dropping by. But I stopped at a magazine store nearby and asked if they had any bus route maps, figuring that it might be possible to take a bus if one could be found going the right way. They didn't have any, but suggested I go over to the hotel and ask at the lobby.

When I got to the hotel, the clerk said that they didn't have any maps, but they could be found online, why don't I go down to the business center and look. So I did, and discovered that this particular business center isn't one of those where they charge you so much per minute, or even have their computers secured at all. So here I am, banging out a journal entry and waiting for my brother to come take me to lunch at the nearby Drunken Fish sushi place.

Ah, life is just better with Internet access.
