"Lost in the sun, can anybody find their home?"

[Advent Day 2] Isaiah 62:10-12
10 Pass through, pass through the gates!
      Prepare the way for the people.
      Build up, build up the highway!
      Remove the stones.
      Raise a banner for the nations.

11 The LORD has made proclamation
      to the ends of the earth:
      "Say to the Daughter of Zion,
      'See, your Savior comes!
      See, his reward is with him,
      and his recompense accompanies him.' "

12 They will be called the Holy People,
      the Redeemed of the LORD;
      and you will be called Sought After,
      the City No Longer Deserted.
Spent much of my morning on Adventy conversation.  Yayness.  Then work got crazybusy (recruiting deadline is Dec. 1), so the rest of the day's comments got responded to tonight.  (Do let me know if I neglected your comment either here or elsewhere.  I think e-mail notifications are finally fully back, but one never knows.)  I'm getting all edumucated about Advent and having wonderful conversations with thinky people.  (And it should go without saying, but please feel free to continue the discussion.)

[Sidenote: There's a "Ten things I assume you know about me" meme going around.  Am thinking that might be a good idea to do, though most of you are old-timers by now.]

Last Wednesday at 8:38am Eric walked in and saw me at my desk.  "Do you sleep here?"
No, I definitely don't.  The way the trains run I get to work about 20 minutes early, but I am out like a shot at 5 to make my train, and you better believe I don't do any actual work until 9am sharp.

And I very much enjoy my time off. Though the long weekends throw me. Friday I felt like it was Saturday, Saturday I kept thinking I had to go back to work the next day, and Sunday I was finally in the groove of not going back to work but of course I had to go back the next day.

CCMO is finally starting to get sent to Course Services, so I asked Prof.B. if he had talked with Bianca about making this a permanent position -- something he mentioned weeks ago.  He said he hadn't and wanted to confirm with me that I really was interested in staying at this position for 2 or 3 years ('cause if I'm gonna quit after a year it's hardly worth it) and I said 'yes, definitely' and he said "That's all I needed to hear" and said he'd call Bianca tomorrow and he actually said "I can't officially offer you the job, but..." because HR has to post it and I'm sure there's an interview process and of course it's all very complicated, but I've been there since Oct. 3 and at HBS since Aug. 15 and everyone likes me so there's no good reason I wouldn't get to stay perm -- though I've learned that nothing is for certain, so I'm keeping the giddiness in check.

Zia tagged me for this:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Hear You Me - Jimmy Eat World
Blurry - Puddle of Mudd
All At Sea - Jamie Cullum
Breathless - Better Than Ezra

Honorable mention goes to Immaculate Machine 'cause they came up on random recently and I was reminded how much I enjoy them.

And no I'm not tagging anyone for this.  If you want to do it, consider yourself tagged.
