Tonight I have applied for one job at CHB, two at Harvard, one at the Smithsonian, and a couple others I don't remember anymore. I looked at the job listings for State Street Bank and discovered that they have some fantastic opportunities for people who can work from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. - which is sorta cool in regards to flexibility provided I don't mind never ever seeing my husband or children again, so scratch that for now. What other companies should I be looking at? I need stuff within reasonable commuting distance of Dorchester (still not Guam).

ETA: The job application whirl is giving me a greasy, post-binge feeling. As though I went to a party, slept with everyone, and now I wonder whether I regret it. I hate job hunting.

Danger Lad! made a painting at school yesterday. He was very excited to show it to me when I got home. He held it up and gestured at it, "There are vertical lines, as you can see..."

Sometimes the parenting challenge is not cracking up when they're being unintentionally funny.

I don't know if they have offices out there, but Google is hiring like CRAZY. Both Jon and I got unsolicited Google recruiters contacting us through different channels last week. We're seriously considering having one or more of us go get a real job there. I've heard it can be a nice place to work.

I haven't got any leads for you (not even here in Michigan), but I wish you the very best in this round of searching. As always, you belong somewhere great.

Try Tish's company--Smarter Travel, in Charlestown--I don't know if they have anything up your alley but it can't hurt to look and you can't beat the benefits with a stick. And if you do find something to apply for, let us know, so Tish can make an internal reference.

Good luck with the job search. I've been looking since last summer, so I feel your pain.

The story about DL!'s vertical line painting is the sort of thing that makes me excited about having kids. Similarly, visiting friends on Saturday, we got to hear a 13-month-old say "sausage!" repeatedly. It was awesome.

DL is awesome

but you know I think that.

And I wholeheartedly agree with you on the feeling one gets after pimping oneself out for job-hunting.
