I got a job

We had just about given up hope, but I finally got a full-time job. I start Monday.

The job is a research assistant with Operation PAR. PAR is a local drug/alcohol rehab. I will be assigned a federal research grant to gather data for study. I'll be working "in the field", which means my office will be in the jail. I do intake interview and then 6 & 12 month follow-ups. The rehab program is 3 months.

The pay is not what I wanted, but at this point beggars (literally) can't be choosers. Plus there are a lot of great opportunities for advancement after 12 months. In fact they don't want you to be a RA for more than a year, and help facility and train you to move on to other things within the agency. Maybe I can actually put this Counseling Doctorate to use. I will also get some opportunities to teach.

All in all I think it will be good. Wish me luck.

The fact that this actually got in front of a judge appalls me. This State Senator filed a lawsuit against God saying that, "God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha, inspired fear and caused 'widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

He wanted to make the point that should have access to the courts no matter how rich or poor. How exactly does this suit make that point?

I think the point he actually made is that he's a complete asshat who likes to waste taxpayers time and money.

Halloween has begun

I know it's only the 3rd, but I've started the Halloween decorations.

While husband was at work tonight, I broke out the candles. These are my Halloween Party Lite pieces that I love.

This is my Haunted House. It light up from inside. Very cool.

Mr. Bones and his dog.

Mr. & Mrs Jack O' Lantern...

Oh Halloween happiness.
