I am so bored with applying for jobs, I’m afraid my boredom shows in the applications. It’s very hard to remain ‘up’ and ‘bubbly’ for weeks on end. And what’s with this desire that applicants should be ‘bubbly’ anyway? I suspect it’s a dog whistle for ‘female’ as it tends to crop up in administrator posts, or receptionist posts.

In other news, there is very little other news.

We played Call of Cthulhu last weekend, and had a good time. Our little party of three danced around the edge of confronting the gribblies (generic name for creatures from another world) refusing to go into the ancient stables, the deserted chapel or the sinister house.

My character (a doctor) and my friend Jo's (a dilettante) both saw visions when we looked between two standing stones with suspicious scratches on them. Visions like that never presage anything good.

Finally, we had climbed over the wall of the sinister house and through the creepy woods so often that our luck gave out and Jo's character stepped on a bear trap and it closed on her leg. Ooops! My character did what he could, but we had to get her to hospital and explain the injury as best we could.

I think the gribblies may be winning.

The gribblies are always winning. If not now, then in the return match.

Bubbly? Who the heck wants "bubbly"? It's annoying on 20 yo blondes.

Can you create a bubbly character and just get into it when needed? Character sheet optional, but I found that it helps to have it around.

Sorry it's been so annoying and stressful. Bubbly in a job description? Do they supply whatever drug is needed to make bubbly? Personally, I dislike the bubbly ones, I'd rather see competent over 'cheerful' or 'up', whatever the job.

I'd wish you interesting times, but we're already there. I'll wish you cat purrs instead.
