My god, it's been so long [Aug. 5th, 2014|07:28 pm]
Never mess with the sacred chickens
So I made a pathetic attempt to catch up on people's journals and gave that up to be ventured upon again at some other time. It's been so long since I've been on, that I am ashamed that it was only during watching the magnificence that is the film Mortal Combat that I felt the irresistible yearning to be on LJ again.

Summer has gone in a snap. Did some travelling, much of which was stressful in different ways, had lovely visits and not lovely visits from people, took on a new admin position at work which has been ridiculously stressful for totally dumb reasons. And now I am here watching Mortal Kombat, having watched about 5 movies with the words 'mega' and 'shark' in the title over the past 2 days, and thinking about what delights will await me at work tomorrow.

So, how are all you lovely people?

I hope you were also able to catch Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda. *g* Also, it's good to see you!

I missed that one. :( But I did see Sharknado 2, which was a thing of great joy.

I've been meaning to get back to actually using my journal for more than downloading random jdramas and seeing what my (dwindling) flist is up to. Someday...

I have not seen a kdrama or jdrama in far too long, alas. Just bad shark movies these days.

I love that everyone spends both Mortal Kombat movies asking Liu Kang if he is ready or telling him he isn't.

Doing well!

Never update my journal these days anyway.

I have not seen the other one. I am a purist where my bad adaptations of video arcade games is concerned. :)

Glad to hear you're doing well.

Well, I leaked it here first, after the offer but before the contract came, so you probably did not get back that far (the big FB announcement was a few days ago) . . .

but I FINALLY have a full time academic position. I will be teaching at NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology) and running the Writing Center there. It's in NJ, but totally commutable by public transit, so we are not moving, which is even better, since we just moved last year and I plan to keep this apartment forever.

I handed in my health insurance forms yesterday. My husband is already nagging me to schedule a checkup, something I haven't had in years and years, since the US does not believe healthcare is a basic human right.
