China Doll

Ahhh, my bloglings. I've missed yous guys. I've been crazy busy with the new job. Man, it's a whole different ballgame for me going to more marketing communications duties. I like the people and location (Chinatown for this China Doll!). I just haven't had a chance to breathe. And going from having my own office to an exposed cubicle pretty much means blogging from work is a negative.

And in an even more suprising move I turned down a job that would have been more money, but less responsibility and less overall experience building in my opinion. And some very wise people steered me in the right course. If this job doesn't work out I'll just what I do best - hit the ground running.

In a totally un-related note, I'm having a yard sale this weekend. I'm hoping to purge my life of a lot of extra hangers-ons. I have some side tables, electronics, art work, and kitchenware to get rid of. Putting up signage in the neighborhood is my next step. Luckily, I live on a pretty busy street so we should get a lot of passers-by. Have any of you thrown a yard-sale and had success?

Chinatown?! Girlie, we're neighbors. Good luck with the new job! Do I hear more Rosa mexicana?

A yard sale sounds fun - we had one when I lived on Capitol Hill and had tons of people come by as they were on their way to the park. What about doing some posts on CL to bring people by? You could post the items and then say, come see it at...

Sounds like you made the right choice to me. I made the same decision a year and a half ago, started looking in April and BAM! I'm now in the job of my life. It's bene. Multo bene.
Chinatown. Respect. Don't eat at Fiveguys everyday! God I love that f-ing place, but when I look at the people scoffing down those tasty burgers, I think to myself "Twice a year, Twoste, twice a year only can you enjoy those tasty burgers. And when you're stoned. That works too."
If you ever see someone who looks like they're judging everyone harshly in the line for Kabuki Sushi and EAT at National Place, then say "Hi" to a Twoste. He might be in a good mood.
And the guy in the cubicle next to me is snoring...
