Fine, technically its a cheat, but Harlean did become Jean, so…live with it! 😛 Besides which, its a great song, and video!
So what has cheered up little Jean, you might be asking? Well, apart from the fact that she’s finally got a job offer, and yes, its that one where I said the wage was too good to be true, so I will find out about that, at least! I still cant believe that an ordinary call centre job is offering £13.50 ($19.50) an hour, but I cant complain, if true. Oh fine, lets face it, I would be the one person who would love it, if it did involve literal interfacing with the computer system, wouldnt I? 😉 Or if we’ll really be working from an alien spaceship, hundreds of miles above the Earth, then great! No, sadly, I doubt very much either will happen, but a girl can dream! No dress code, so maybe we do get offered silver body suits to wear at work? Again, I wish! Though officially, I’ll be working in Halifax!
In other good news, yes, the passport matter has now finally been sorted out in full, after one last call on Friday. Someone had missed one important document, and the passport I’d sent in, but someone else in the office confirmed they had them, would authorise it there, and then, so should have it by the middle of the week. Thats it, I’m Harlean Carpenter now, for life, unless I marry (ha ha), I guess? Even then, I might not be keen on changing that wonderful name.
Oh, and my little bedroom here, is now somebody else’s office. No, dont panic, I havent been evicted yet, and as long as this job is real, and I’m not sleeping on an alien space craft in the future, I’ve changed rooms, now got one room as my little apartment. Kitchen, and bathroom are still the house facilities, but otherwise…Yes, it will take some sorting out, as I’ve lost a lot of storage space, but at least now I can afford the new chest of drawers, and maybe a second small wardrobe, now I’ve got a job!
Fine, I probably should have got a lottery ticket yesterday, but my outdoor clothes are buried in a bag somewhere, in my room, so didnt happen! Oh, and lastly, seems like I’m doing a vintage clothing shoot, in 3 weekends time. Not sure if it will be here, or Hull, at present. He’s happy to come to me, but its a train line I havent travelled in years, and I suspect he has more space than me, too. Should be great, wherever its done.
OK, the blog title isnt only a play on Jean’s name change, though I’m more than delighted to be using her old name. It also works for the video too. I know, shock horror, and all that!
