Back To Normal!
The long night is over. Or so it seems.
I was working at a two bit casino, doing security. And by "security" I mean chilling out in an office, watching over things left in my care by homeless people, bag ladies, and various other ancient people who did not speak any English.
You see, the casino is across the street from a K-Mart. So people would come in with all sorts of shit - blenders, cheap shoes, even groceries. Company policy was for them to leave the stuff with security, so they could go upstairs to gamble away all their savings without trying to sell the shit they bought at K-Mart so they could just get five more dollars to lose.
That would actually happen.
Needless to say the job was mind numbing, depressing, and not really something I needed to keep doing.
But there was nothing else. Really. There was NOTHING else. It is that shitty out there.
But just as I was closing in on one year at the casino, I got delivered unto a new and better job.
Actually an old job. Or at least a job I had sort of done before. The job title is different, but that is OK.
So I am back to the exciting world of diplomatic stuff. I am a front line ambassador of sorts. Sure, it is only for a county (as opposed to being the Ambassador to Norway or something) - but you have to start somewhere.
Things are back on track. And that is a very good thing.
