I did not write last night because I was tired. How are you doing? What an interesting past couple of days! I already told you about Beth and Jill, running into them that night, and my new friend.
Last night was an incredible poetry reading, probably the best ever, after all these years! My own reading went qutie well, but this group from Wiston-Salem headlined the most amazing set. My God. They’re Rastas, and called themselves AcousticPoetElectric. Very nice guys, the both of them. My mystic friend I was telling you about, was there actually, and got up and told stories about poetry in the old days of the Lower East Side with Ginsberg, and so on. He even went into talking about Anarchism, which really impressed me. Though this guy is a little pushy as far as giving advice is concerned, I like the old codger. 🙂
Your check came in today. I’m about to go deposit it. $2,176.25.
I have a job interview set up in the morning. And some other company called: a woman from the HR dept of some packaging company; asked me kind of basic questions, and then said she would pass these on to some manager. That particular position is for “quality control” or something like that. Anyway, this interview I was telling you about: I talked with the guy at this company called InfoSeal, and the position is for “Machine Operator.” He said he was impressed with my background and asked me if I knew anything about OS X. Haha. I dropped some science on him about all that. He was saying down the line he would like to transition me into second designer. So I’m going there in the morning to talk with him about the two positions, the more immediate one, and the one on the horizon. However, I’m really shooting for the Roanoke Times at this point.
So Ki, your check is in, and it looks like I’ll be employed with someone very, very soon. We may be sitting well very soon.
Bye for now, sweetheart.
