1. CVS is currently displaying Halloween items... and also Christmas ornaments. What is happening why is happening

2. However, they also have at least three cards specifically for same-sex weddings, which is new since I last looked. So that made me happy. Maybe they finally figured out they needed them when gay marriage became Officially Legal Everywhere No Really 4 Srs Now?
2a. There are no same-sex anniversary cards, which made me roll my eyes for a minute until I remembered that anniversary cards for one's spouse tend to be written in first-person and "I" is not a gendered word.
2b. Are there languages in which "I" is gendered? Interesting question. I'm glad I don't have to buy cards in one.

3. The 5:55 Needham Heights train is chronically delayed lately and I Do Not Like It, mostly because if the T can't get its shit together when it's 95 degrees out, I shudder to think what the winter will bring.

4. These are the sorts of things that would really be better posted on Twitter. Sorry, LJ.

5. Another thing that would be better posted to Twitter, and better still not posted at all: I was in Target over the weekend and they were selling posters of Anna and Elsa with the caption "An act of love will thaw a freezing heart." You know, from the hit movie, Freezing. I am Frozen trash and could not rest until I told somebody this.

6. Happy Wednesday.

Man I am glad that someone else found the "Freezing" thing funny because I was full of eyerolls and subdued giggles when I saw it in the store but I didn't think anyone else would care.

If your friend's son is looking for a transcription job I believe my company is hiring, but I'm sorry, I've forgotten the exact details of what kind of job your friend's son is looking for. What are the details again?

At this point in his life, what he's looking for 'is a job in Boston.' He does computer design, and IT type stuff, wants to be a writer some day. I think the transcription thing would be SO perfect for him, though.

Can you email me details, and I'll pass it along? That would be so great!

Well, ATC's seeking-jobs webpage is here: http://www.audiotranscriptioncenter.com/transcriptionjobs.html and I think it has all the information he'd need. There's a link to the online application there.

Thank you!

I sent it on to my friend. I think he'd be a good fit there, I really do. And he so much wants to get back to Boston. This would be so great.

Good! I hope I'll meet him soon!
