Also found another position where I have nailed all of the requirements and the wish-list. Sent a resume and cover letter addressing each point and specifically how I meet or exceed that point. We'll see if I even get a response.
On the home-repair front:
Idiots. Somewhere along the line, the previous owners painted over the wallpaper. In every freaking room in the house. And now the wallpaper is starting to peel. In places. In the rest of the places, it's stuck tight. It's a nightmare, because once the wallpaper starts to separate, it doesn't stop. And you can't remove it with a steamer, because of the paint.
Barb's birthday dinner thing was nice. I made s'ghetti and burned some stuff in the fireplace, then we sat down and watched Resident Evil on DVD. I was struck by how much the art direction looked like a videogame.
