I Have a Job!!!!
Your (& my!) prayers have paid off. It is in this last two weeks of summer that I find employment. I had long given up on the prospect of a summer job this year, but I should know by now, nothing's impossible when Irish are involved. Yes, I would like to give a shout out to a wonderful group of Irish Catholics in our fair (but Mormon) state of Utah. I shall explain. My former youth minister (not the one I went to visit, the one before her. You know, we really go through yms like some people go through socks. Well, hopefully not.) Okay, back to my former youth minister. So she's originally from Utah and she makes rosaries, she's actually the person who taught me. Apparently, the largest population of Catholics west of Boston is in Utah. I didn't realize there were Catholics in Utah. Then again, I didn't realize there were Catholics in Boston, either. Oh boy, some liberal has probably stumbled onto our little blog just in time to read that. Well, we've never claimed to be pc, so they'll just have to deal with it. Anyway (I keep digressing. That one guy in Catcher in the Rye wouldn't approve. But when I think of that book, I think of prostitutes and clipping toe nails, so I'm going to stop that train of thought.) Now where was I? Oh yes, rosaries. So these Irish Catholics are having a huge Irish fest & they've called on Steph to make 3-400 Irish rosaries by Nov. She in turn called me and asked me to be her partner on this one. So I'm now making $10/rosary which rough translates to $10/hr. Not that I'm going to be working a whole heck of a lot of hours, but it's a job (& a fun one!) none the less. :) Here's a little self advertisment.
