offer

Well, it's done: I got a real job.

The law firm where I'm temping offered me exactly what I was hoping for. After I get back from vacation, at the end of May, I'll start my new schedule: Friday, Sunday and Monday, 12 hour days. Very good pay (for this field in this city), generous vacation time and good benefits. The hours give me a rest of the weekday office environment, and most importantly, time to write.

Yay!

Hooray, L-girl! It's so great that you found just what you wanted! Congrats!

Congratulations! Wish doing 12 hour days at my job would make 'em let me take two days off a week. ;)

Awesome.

Confidential to LG: Message recieved. Han will be happy to help out Luke and Leia but he and the Falcon will be busy on a Kessel run their first few days in Mos Eisley.

Felicitations!

Good thing you live on the Lakeshore line and have hourly 7-day GO train service (I'm jealous).

Thanks everyone!

That's exactly why we live where we do!

And even better, I get a cab home at night. Either that or they pay for parking, but I'll take the cab. That's de rigeur for law firm night work.

One of the few advantages to being a wage slave. :)

Thanks Wrye! Message received and partially decoded.

BTW, how are you enjoying the Canadian tax system? (Anita says hi!)

I'm curious how you find it compared to the US system.

Hey congrats - I think I'd like that type of schedule also.

We don't know yet - we're taking care of both sets of taxes the week I'm off (week before our vacation). I'll post about it afterwards.

Thanks! It's cool to get it all over with at once. You can have more of your own life, outside work.
