After months of searching, with increasing desperation* and hopelessness**, I have landed myself a job, and a job that I'm interested in and qualified for, to boot!

I shall, at long last, be a union organizer! In the Pacific Northwest! I guess it's time to finally read "Sometimes a Great Notion."

I'll be working with nurses, which is great because I have tremendous respect and empathy for nurses, and if any group of working people on earth deserves a better deal than nurses, I don't know who they are. Previously, I was working at a union for construction workers, who are somewhat harder to have sympathy for, as a whole.

So... yay! Hopefully, this development will re-ignite my creative wellspring, which withered somewhat dramatically during my long employment drought.

* so desperate was I at points that I started a business plan for an escort service.
** so hopeless was I at points that I contemplated moving back to Chicago. !!

I guess it's time to out myself as living in the nation's premier hotbed of communism and indie-rock: Portland, Oregon. Et vous?

Bumfuck Conservative Backwoods Hell. Oh, also known as Spokane, WA. I have family in Portland, and a dear friend who is a Union Organizer in Seattle. So yes, we're all here in the Pacific Northwest. Either surrounded by hippies (in you case) or Republicans (in mine).

I will be around, but don't know how my free time looks, this job apparently demands a lot of overtime. Call me when you get to town!
