The New Job and The Scissor Sisters.

So I got a new job...at a women's crisis shelter that takes in women (and their children) who are leaving abusive relationships.

I have to miss my 2 days of school this week for training, but so far its been poilicy and procedure bullshit, and stupid boring. Especially when she gives us the manual, and just reads out of it. But, its important enough I suppose.

Anyway, I know this sucks as a post, but between all the work im doing for school, and now this. Im silently praying that everynight someone will call me and help me procrastinate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And if you're interested The Scissor Sisters are performing at MTV live on Tuesday October 10th. However, LD, remember when I called you and said "If I only read the email...." Well ya, there was more email after the bit that I read to you. LOL (let me assure you that I had never heard of this band until last night. Go listen to filthy gorgeous...its awesome.)

Anyway, this one's a little different.

Special Lunchtime Performance of the Scissor Sisters @ MTV Live! Tuesday October 10th. Show up at 11:30 at the Masonic Temple @ 888 younge street, toronto.
For FREE tickets to MTV Live call (416) 355-3979, toll free 1-888-491-6888
or send an e-mail to liveaudience@mtv.ca.
I guess whats going to happen, is that they're going to perform at lunch time, and then they'll play the show online at 6:30. I dunno....the B.I.L is going to send me the info, but he's got us 6 tickets.

Thank god Im off school that day...there'd be no way that I could take the entire day to go to this. If you're going, i'll see you there.

That's awesome, Scissor Sisters are great, by the way the song is called "filthy gorgeous"

Amichai said...

who the heck are the scissor sisters? Does it show how unhip I am that I don't know?

And also, even though you're going through some boring stuff at work, it sounds like a really rewarding job. One of those "I'm actually making the world a better place by going to work each day" sort of job. So kudos to you.

Ash - Oh, I was at my training today, and she was about to put me down for the october 10th schedule, but then switched it to the 12th....whew...LOL!

Dawn - Ya ya, I switched it...Im lucky I remembered that much about them. LOL!

Amichai - Go watch them on youtube. Todays training was just as boring...but there was a lot more interaction today. Not just reading. I dont know if I am making the world a better place, but every woman that walk in there, im making their world's a safer place at least.

I hate your new skin.

Anyway congrats on the job. The orientation stuff is boring but important so make sure you pay at least some attention to it. This is certainly good news.

Sexy Suburbanite said...

What will you be doing at your new job? How exciting!

Princess Pessimism said...

Yrautca - My new skin??? Is that what the blog background is? Its just black. Nothing more basic than that. Or are you afraid of it? LOL!

And as for the training....ive been quasi paying attention through it, and text messaging the rest of the time.

Princess Pessimism said...

Sexy - Im counselling...doing crisis counselling for abused women. umm...advocacy, and empowerment sessions for the families. But mostly working the crisis line, and crisis desk.

Lindsey said...

Yay! You got the job! Congratulations...now you're really going to have no free time.

Princess Pessimism said...

Linny - Thats okay. Less time to meet stupid people. LOL

Trib said...

They sound dangerous. Like Rock and Roll should be.

Princess Pessimism said...

Trib - That comment made me laugh out loud...too funny.

OMG...I used to work at Harbor House, a place for women in crisis... domestic violence...the works. I did a lot of training for it. It was so interesting. If it had not been a volunteer thing, I'd have stuck around longer.
