My New Filing Technique Is Unstoppable

Yes, it's true, after weeks of agonizing downloading porn whining about not having a job while not really looking for one, gainful employment has found me. My new job starts in a week or so and runs first for a 3-month "evaluation period," after which they'll decide whether I'm worth it or not—so I may have to start all over again in May, while choking back tears. Pay's good, full benefits, hopefully interesting tech-babble work, etc.; so far the only drawback is the multi-bus 60-90min. commute each way to Waltham, thankfully against rush-hour traffic. Remember, "Waltham" rhymes with SPAM ("Wall-thaaam"), not with DUMB ("Wall-thumb").

In the interest of following Blogspot/Blogger's guidelines on How Not to Get Fired Because of Your Blog, my job will be off-limits for discussion in these pages, not that this is a particularly personal/diaryesque site. Also, while the upsides of joining the washed masses of the gainfully employed—including health insurance, a positive bank balance, and the prospect of meeting new people—far outweigh the downsides, there are some negatives: having to get up before 10am, shaving, reluctantly wearing my "good" underwear, etc....And forget about those 11am "breakfasts" of chocolate cake, provolone, and Amstel Light. My point: with something worthwhile to do 9am-5pm, I won't be posting as prolifically as I once did, which should actually help the blog/your eyes, as it means shorter, more concise/single-topic stuff like you see on less shitty unorthodox blogs. Seriously, the archives of this site so far are kinda frightening, like the rantings of a doped-up madman headed for the electric chair and just desperate to get laid one last time or something. Why didn't somebody stop me?

And yes, since you asked, My New Filing Technique Is Unstoppable.
