All tremble at the coming employcalypse.
Brandon, Brandi, and I have all decided to take a stab at different work options.

I am going to leave brightworking. Why? Because the hours are way too sporadic, and my commitment to the work is making it more difficult to find other options.
So, um, yeah. Does anyone have any promising leads?


  1. Raz, I think you would make an awesome high school tutor. I think you would deflect the stinging rays of teenage disgust well and pester them into either thought or assault. Also, kindergarteners. Raz would do well with tiny things that can’t help but frustrate you and make you creative.

  2. Welcome to the employcalypse. Good luck.
    Hopefully I’ll crawl out of it next week.
    Next I just have to crawl my way out of Everett.

  3. What kind of work do you want to do?

  4. I like people and I like public service. I like working with my hands too, but realize that frequently working with one’s hands can be difficult work to break into around here.

  5. dude. crisis line. it’ll be your new hobby.

    the low income housing institute is hiring

  7. what are you doing tonight at around seven or so?

  8. Dude, you guys missed the real employcalypse, that was two months ago when I quit my job.

  9. also:
    This seems like fun. I am going to apply to it because it satisfies my sense of fun, but I think *you* should apply to it because it suits you better.

  10. you should come pumpkin carving at my house! or are you hayriding?

  11. so your day in the want ads, my friend

    dude, so perfect

  13. Oh man!
    I’m not hayrding tonight- I’m working on that for tomorrow (are you in, m’dear?) I was planning a night of staying in and doing some catch up work, and was gonna invite Raz over for some tea (since sedate is pretty basically what I am up to today in terms of socializing)
    But- pumpkins! Carving them! At your house!
    Can I perhaps not come tonight but we can maybe make plans for next saturday having a drawing party of some sort?

  14. that sounds good. lovely.

  15. No leads, but I’m hunting too.

  16. for you- look either in the seattle weekly or the stranger- one of them has an ad for a box office manager that I think would be great for you!
    also, the environmental thing that I posted in this fine journal would be great for you, too

  17. i think i’ll join in this show of joblessness by.. staying unemployed. but now, with more emphasis!
