The Red Dragon is a vicious Mistress

But at least she's here. For the first couple of months co-habiting with Figaro I just ignored myself reproductively besides being pissed off when we had to be careful, but yesterday I reached the point of being madly delighted that the Red Dragon had finally attacked, even though it was followed within minutes with the feeling that I was a racehorse with terminal colic.

So that gave me a good reason to go home early, and in a burst of clarity and precious, precious fucking time (Is it a feature of being happy, that time seems like the dearest thing in the world? Or just of having a stupid full time job? Or a combination?) I put together the template of a letter for promoters, and most of the proposal itself. The letter should start going out today, but after some tweaking I'm going to send the proposal for vetting elsewhere - not as though it matters so much, since I can't send it out until someone agrees to promote me.

And if no one does, why, then I've got a great excuse to just be a normal whack job instead of an academic one. There's probably more money in it, after all. I want this opportunity quite a lot - but at the same time, I feel like either fork this thing takes can be appealing.

Going to work this morning is not.

Oh well.

It is so hard to go to work on Fridays. We need a four day work week. Then we wouldn't be so obsessed with not working when working. Maybe. Probably not.

Well, in France you can arrange your 35 hours quite easily so as to have a four day week (generally people do the Wednesday though, because elementary kids don't go to school Wednesdays.) And they're really productive workers. Not like me.

Wedesdays. That would be the last day I would request to have off.

I think maybe I would be more productive if I didn't have to work so much - or if I had any work to do at all. Maybe that's the problem....

I don't know, I think it's a good idea. "''ump Day'? Qu'est-ce qu c'est un ''ump Day?" Lucky fucking French.

Especially because institutions usually stay open Wednesdays, so you can get all your banking shit and shit done.

Sometimes I think I would be a more productive worker if the nature of my work was being a lazy slob.

Ha-ha! Wouldn't we all?! Maybe there's some study that you can participate in.

Congrats on getting your letter template going, you're really doing it! Not that I ever doubted you wouldn't, because I know you..

..and because I know you, I am pretty certain you will find someone to promote you.

Have a great weekend! I'll be busy with the family up and the b-day party etc.

Wish a happy birthday to the gorgeous munchkin. You have a great weekend too. We're going to go high and then go to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair! I can't wait!
