I've been asked to be the godfather (Don 'Door) for my nephew. I'll do it but I'm would be extremely uncomfortable if I have to say anything that pertains to my belief in a god. Being who I am, I would find it wrong if I have to profess a belief in god when in fact I don't. I do want to do this for my family, but this does hang over my head. What should I do?
I've just come back from three days in Camperdown, country Victoria. It's a beautiful little town. History has always fascinated me and I enjoy wandering around looking at old buildings, perusing the town museum and rummaging through op-shops. I think you need to do that to really appreciate where you are.
You never know what you can find in the op-shops. I found a video called "Gold ! Gold !! Gold!!!, a year in the life of TISM". $2 later it was mine. There were also some excellent pieces of furniture straight out of the 60's and 70's. I may have to go back with a trailer if I ever need to furnish where I live.
I have a job again. And it has turned out for the best. There was an opening in the maths department so they came to me. I said that I still wanted to work on my PhD and so if I could have one day a week off then I would be interested. They came to the party. So next year I'll be teaching maths and having a four day week. It's a one year contract but it couldn't have suited me better. Now I just need to find a place to live. Also, that non-existing relationship may mend itself also.
Not PrOn If you like puzzles this is a good one. You have to solve each puzzle to move to the next stage. The puzzles are in the form of pictures. But you have to think outside the picture. Maybe even look at the address!
It's been a great last couple of weeks for me. Firstly, I have to move out of my apartment by the 19th of december. Secondly, yesterday I was told I would not be re-employed next year. Thirdly, if I was in a relationship then I'm sure that would have broken up as well. So next year I'll be in a new place and I've decided that I'm going to spend the first bit of it finishing off my thesis. I'll try to pick up some casual work for cash. The bright side is that next year I can rejoin the crew for friday noodles.
Footnote: They say that bad luck comes in threes, and it has in this case as well. I've lost my wallet. What a pain in the .... Footnote to footnote: Someone found my wallet and I've got it back. The woman who found it owns Dinkums. I recommend it for your copying needs.
