Search mode day 2

Well, nothing happening today in the way of paying work, unfortunately, although all the local Accountemps offices know I'm out there.
This leaves the calendar clear for me to head downtown this afternoon for a quick chat with the folks at Accountants International, who I spoke with back in February when I was originally fired. Hopefully between them and Accountemps we'll have this interruption in the work/cash flow mended by Monday, but just in case I'm filing for unemployment when I get back from the interview.

Still no word from the dealer on the Sportage. This is actually good since I can't pay them until next Thursday anyway.

Anathem is slow going, especially since I've been distracted by Weber & Ringo's March to the Sea and will probably get stuck into March to the Stars instead of going back to Anathem, which is not terribly interesting in its reformatting of A Canticle for Leibowitz.

A couple of links worth your while: Joanna Lumley leads Gurkhas in protest at Westminster. I dunno if I'd be willing to see Johnny Gurkha turned loose on the chavs, but I certainly think the retired Gurkhas and their relatives are being hard done by. They ought to get the same consideration for immigration that the medieval, disloyal Pakis get, at least. Also, your yard sale is illegal, and Carrie Prejean gets hammered for agreeing with Obama. (Maggie's Farm, Instapundit, ibid.)

We've been dealing with the bullshit that is the CSPIA for nearly two years now. There was a year reprieve, but we're still labeling every one of our games for ages 13+, no matter how simple it is (unless it's a specifically kid-focused game.

I don't know how many businesses this is going to destroy.

Resisting the obvious DBZ line here...
...yeah, it's going to screw a lot of people hard. I don't think this is the hope and change people were looking for.

Um...it was in the planning stages far before Obama was elected. It was supposed to take effect February 1, but was pushed back a year when people tried the same "WTF?!?" after January 20, 2009 that they'd been yelling for quite a while leading up to it.

I'm not saying that Obama is going to do anything different, but it's not him that got us into this mess.

He had the chance to veto it. He didn't. Looks to me like he's okay with it...or not paying attention. Which do you prefer?

A modified version. Again, it got kicked back for review. I'd like to see what they do before I bitch.

It's never too early to start bitching. Just ask the New York Times! :)
