Sunday post 6
As you can see by the back-to-back Sunday posts, I got no blogging done at all last week. But I also only just finished Bad Feminist today, and The Winter Soldier on Friday night, and chose to spend my Saturday playing Dragon Age and hanging out with spawn.
Oh, and finally starting season three of Hannibal. :)
The upshot is of course, no posts. (Also I'm very very very lazy. Have I mentioned that?)
My supervisor returned from Raratonga so my work week was far less fraught than the one before. Coming up - my very last week of work before redundancy kicks in.
I had a meeting with a job search consultant last week (aside: I had no idea that was a thing). The company is paying for six sessions and basically what they do is help you identify your strengths, update your CV and, hopefully, ultimately, get a job.
The guy I spoke to was very nice - approachable and optimistic about my chances to find another job, which is nice to hear. I have a bit of "homework" and another session on Thursday morning.
Let's see. ... what else.
Oh, that's the other thing. I spent yesterday morning dealing with a charming infestation of nits, which meant showers and baths and an absolute truckload of washing. *Sigh*. So by last night I was really only fit for gaming or watching TV - lol.
I finished Bad Feminist, as I said, and found it very thought-provoking. I'll do a review some time this week, but I am nowhere near as eloquent as Ms Gay, so we'll just see how that goes.
I'll also try and do a review of The Winter Solider. Well .... review/rant probably about how it's so much better than Age of Ultron and - wait, never mind.
I've been picking away at Dragon Age; Inquisition and it mostly highlights to me how absolutely terrible I am at games. But. There's a new DLC coming out on September 8 and even though I'm like, 10 minutes into Inquisition, I'm super super excited. Just. Because.
Friday is my last day - and effectively the last day for two other workmates who also took the redundancy offered, so there will probably be awkward speeches and then everyone will decamp to the pub. The pub normally isn't my thing, but I'll make an exception just this once.
Before that, on Thursday, we have spawn's school's production of Red Riding Hood, which should be hilariously entertaining.
Other than that, I'm going to keep working through Hannibal, The Sunne in Splendour, and I also started Our Endless Numbered Days, which looks like a very promising read.
How's your week looking?
