After that I headed over to the VA clinic, put in an order for syringes, and got a week's worth to tide me over until the new ones arrive. I also called Accountemps in Alexandria and made an appointment to come in and reactivate my file, which hopefully will yield me an extra week of pay on top of the week's severance I have coming from Wilbar. I'm going to need it, since the Sportage's starter switch (fortunately not the starter itself) is fried and will cost $250 to replace. I'm also having them look at the turn signal and dome light while they're in there messing with the wiring.
Finally stopped off at the library, dropped off the old stuff, and picked up Neal Stephenson's Anathem, Brian Doherty's Radicals for Capitalism (subtitled "A History of the modern American libertarian movement") and two books by Michael Flynn, The Forest of Time and other stories and The Wreck of the River of Stars. Strangely, the Alexandria Library doesn't have his Firestar books.
Well, now to eat lunch and turn my attention to the Serious Business of the day, which is updating my listings on Monster.com and related sites, checking Craigslist for promising ads, and generally firing off resumes and applications in all directions. Wish me luck, f-list.
