Can you check please? I think my fingers fell off...

I have been applying for jobs all day today! So far five applications submitted, with three of them being at the various hospitals around here and you know what that means--- profiles to complete, generic applications (usually 10+ sections long) to fill out, lots and lots and LOTS of typing.

Yeah... my fingers hurt and I have an ache between my shoulder blades from being stooped over so longer. I'm hungry but I don't have the willpower to drag myself into the kitchen.

Sad, I know.

I think I'm going to take a break and read.

Oh. that's my big news-- Micah and I went to Value Village on Saturday and someone was getting rid of what looked like their entire Star Trek collection of books! And what's more--- they were 95% Voyager books!! AHHHH! Do you KNOW how hard it is to find Voyager books? Everything is either Kirk/Enterprise classics or Next Gen. Now, I'm not too big on the classic Kirk, the originals are kind of cheesy, but the independent books set later in the timeline but about Spock, Kirk, Bones, Scotty and all the rest are good- not cheesy. Completely cheese-free, in fact. I do like Next Gen (mmm.. Piccard), but my true love is Voyager, the series I grew up on, was weaned on... sigh... I love them mucho.

But anyway. I got 1-18 of the paperback books, several hard-back indies, a collection of short stories, and a few NG thrown in for good measure. Oh, and one Christian Romance. Altogether the amount saved from list price: $180. :D

Okay, time to relax and hope the ache goes away.
