Piper’s trouble finding a church in DC isn’t the usual one you hear from serious evangelicals, with excuses ranging from “The pastor is a woman” to “The Sunday School is a joke” to “I can’t wake up that early!” No, Greg has trouble finding directions online, and lives in an area where church names are consistently similar sounding. To top it off, awkward social graces make him a prime candidate for meeting all the right girls at all the wrong times. Sad, but at least he’s gaining traction with his coffee research, something we talked about him writing an article on back in late October ’05. I hope he can write it soon, so he can start working for Slate.
I start my freelance fulltime temporary job tomorrow. It’s true. It’s a freelance position for 30 days working fulltime hours at (sadly) less than fulltime rates. Still, it’s a consistent work schedule, which I’ve lacked the last couple of months, and will provide a bit of extra income as I attempt to pass over from red to black (or vice versa). What’s great is that it’s for a company that has a lot of entertainment (read: Hollywood) clientele, including Lions Gate Films and potentially Sony Studios.
The nice thing is my days don’t start there until 10. With a little motivation, I will be getting up earlier and so shall still have time to post here as well as do a bit of writing on the side, in addition to my other regular work duties. Nights are going to be quite full though, as Bobby and I are going to a four nights a week editing schedule for 13 Months of Sunshine. Pack in Dollar Dinner/Canvas Group on Tuesday nights and Wednesday Fun Night, that leaves my Saturdays free for…I don’t know, sleep.
Woohoo for the new year, yeah?
