Not quite King. Perhaps Prince.  
I had an interview for a half-time position at a university branch library on Wednesday. Today I checked my voicemail, and there was the admin guy, who'd called THURSDAY, telling me I had an offer!

*head spinny*

I'm so used to being jerked around and dangled for months, I couldn't even believe this. But it's true.

My contract for the job at the main university library is being renewed next semester, and bumped up to 20 hours. So I will be working 40 hours a week. No benefits, sadly, which is why I'm not king, but enough money that now we will not run out for at least a year. By which time I may have an actual full-time job.

This news, of course, overshadows the House/Senate/Rumsfeld news. :) Okay, no it doesn't. But it makes this fall just that much better.

In sadder news, my candidate lost, but he did amazingly well for someone who had very little support from the party. He's on board to try it again, and so are the rest of us. Now we have a team together, and he's shown he can pull serious numbers, so I'm betting next time he'll win.

Another cool thing: I think I can arrange my hours so I get a three day weekend every week. Too damn cool. :D It means working a few long days, but I think I'm okay with that.

Next up, a lawyer interview. I'm not closing the door on anything, especially a job that provides benefits. So off we go...

That's awesome news!

Not the candidate, but the job! Yay, you! Plus, if you take Fridays off, you'll have plenty of time to watch and rewatch OC and SPN!

No - this news beats the House/Senate/Rumsfield news. I've been concerned about you and I know how much you needed something like this, so I'm very happy for you.

Good luck on the search for benefits!

I'm sorry to hear about your candidate. But as you said, maybe next time.

Again, congrats on finding the extra job.
