The hunt goes on, both for a job and for a new place to live. Sadly, there’s nothing to report on the job front for a third week in a row, but I’m going to keep plugging and hoping something comes through soon. Best of luck to all the new grads out there, by the way, both librarians and other professions/majors. I’ve also been searching for an apartment, which has been interesting. I had one good possibility, but the other person had to back out. No grudges, no hard feelings, stuff happens. I’ve been looking on CraigsList and Roommates.com for places to share, and there’s a lot of interesting stuff available.
In other news, I went to see the new Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe movie last night. Robin Hood was definitely a good one, and my friend and I both enjoyed it. Not to dump on Gladiator, but I liked Robin Hood better. Medieval warfare, drinking songs, Cate Blanchett in full armor rallying forest brats (they were either “feral orphans” or ”forest boys” according to the movie) to battle the French while Heather Alexander’s “March of Cambreadth” played in my head … Awesomeness. I also got one of my new favorite quotes from the movie: Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions.
