holiday music: a unicorn in the veldt?

I don’t generally go for holiday music. If I forget to bring in something good, I might resort to a Pandora station based around some jazzy or piano holiday tunes. My usual fallback is Christmas Cocktails 1 and 2, with...

work: what me, hireable?

I had my “on-site” interview today, actually meeting the federal client and seeing where I might work. I’m still deciding what I want to do, but I can’t help wear a smile and perhaps a slight swagger. Being in-demand, professionally,...

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful day whether you’re spending it on your own or with friends and family. Cooking traditional dishes or kicking back with the tv and ordering in, doesn’t matter. Just enjoy the time off to relax...
