Yeah for Audible

I discovered more or less by accident that Paul Temple And The Front Page Men was going to be released on CD (the novelisation, not the dramatisation) on 12th March. However when I browsed audible yesterday I saw that the download version was out already and that it was a fairly small file, too. It took longer to figure out how to get it on my ipod without using the dreaded itunes software, but by taking the roundabout way of burning it first to CD and themn ripping it from there, I made it work. Haven't listened to it yet as I'm still super-busy, but I'm already looking forward to it. I only hope it's not as boring as The Harkdale Robbery.

Speaking of Francis Durbridge and his work, I really feel like I should write some fanfic involving his characters. I even have an idea for a plot already, but a) I don't have time and b) I still have tons of already written fic that is waiting to be edited if I ever get around to it. For me it's not the writing that is the problem, it really is the editing that I hate and never seem to get anywhere with.

Got my work assigment back. Of course, he is not happy with it, as usual. I honestly wonder why he hired me for that second job. And I'm starting to regret that I took it. The pay is little more than half of what I got paid for my previous assignment and despite what the guy says I don't think it is significantly less work. Perhaps he couldn't find someone else to work for that per-page-wage and that is why he gave the assignment to me.

In totally random non-news, I again didn't get the letter I was waiting for :-/ Also no news from the internship I applied for. Well, I knew I wouldn't get it. Even though it was an internship especially for disabled people, there are probably many of those who can work full time. I'm just not one of them. But I need to get back to studying stuff now.
