w00t-on-toast! - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal
I have a new job! (Subject to references.)

My new job will be Rural Transport Research Co-ordinator for Cambridgeshire ACRE. ... Good grief, that sounds like a real job title! The sort of job a grown-up would have!

They're a charity, so I'll actually feel like I'm doing something useful for a change... and they'll still pay better than my current job. And I'll get paid to learn stuff, and actually do stuff, and make things happen! Which is pretty damn cool really. And I'll even be able to claim that reading cam.misc and cam.transport is work-related... ;-)

HUGE thanks to julietk for a crash course in giving presentations on Saturday, and thanks to all the people who've been listening to me whinge on irc for the past few days, and who've sent motivational email and text messages etc. And I'll shut up now before this sounds like a goddamn Oscars acceptance speech. :-)

Current Mood: w00t!
Now playing: tATu: 200 km/h in the wrong lane

Sorry, no, something eleven syllables long CANNOT be a 'real job title'.

But hey! Congratulations!

OK, so when I see "badger crossing" all over the County, I know who to blame? :)

Well done. Be proactive and use pto452 for an on-demand travel scheme.

(Hmm, rural transport an 'age-old dilemma', eh? Choosing to get out of the countryside strikes me as a no-brainer...)

I go off livejournal for two days, and janet goes and gets a JOB!
