Yesterday I worked another temp day as a seminar registrar/speaker helper. It went well and I'm doing it again tomorrow for a different speaker.

Since I'm bringing in a few pennies doing these I called MO to find out how much I can make in a week before it affects my unemployment. Are you sitting down? $64. The first $64 I make doesn't affect me, everything after that comes out of my unemployment. Are you Freaking Kidding Me?!? So, VURD, those of you who've "benefited" from unemployment and made a little on the side--did you obey all the rules and report all of it? I'm not being paid in cash but I doubt I will make enough to have to be W2'd on it.

Somewhat related--I hate it when someone recommends me for a job and it doesn't work out. I had to turn down a position that was offered to me Tuesday. Thankfully a conversation ensued that made sure everything is smooth. In fact, it was suggested I look at another posting for the same company that may be a better fit.

ETA: I got the greatest call today. One of my best customers from the ex-job called--one of only two that had my cell # --to give me grief. A set of silo liners I ordered for him that arrived since my leaving doesn't fit. While I feel bad for the headache he's left with, it was not in any way my fault. I told him "I really wish I cared" and we laughed. He's boycotting the old company for a while and ordering from the competition. I asked if NewMom had called on him yet and he said he's talked to her once--the day after I left. She called to tell him she's his new account manager, that I just up and quit cuz I took a job closer to home. Innnnteresting, no? At least they're not bad mouthing me too much.

And in sewing news--I procrastinated finishing a skirt that needs to be done tonight. So I went in and in less than 30 minutes have already broken a needle. AND the ruffle foot is consistently grabbing only every other pleat. I can't figure out why. But I will get this sucker done tonight if there is any way possible!

And when it's done I need to work on lines for OKRF. I'm getting better but am still scared to death that I'll be totally off book. Thankfully the world's best stage mates are adept at prompting me ("Well, Narrator, what do YOU think?") but I'd like it if they didn't have to do that during an actual performance.
