Workin’ It

22 Mar

Rob got a job today, hurray! It’s at the Victorian Space Science Education Centre www.vssec.vic.edu.au.

He’ll be doing some science teaching to school field trips or something. He goes in tomorrow for training. One of his classmates works there and recommended Rob for the job. It’s casual work so he only works when he is available. They are closed during all the school holidays so he still gets all that time off. It pays, what I think, is rather well. Oh, plus they aren’t open on the weekends. Seems like a pretty sweet gig. The only drawback is that it’s not super easy to get to. He has to walk 1.5 miles to the train, go downtown, and take another train back this direction.

I went downtown to meet him when he was done.  We went to Sichuan House again. This time I ordered the deep fried chicken that is served buried in red peppers. It was OK. I felt like it was Chinese KFC. I’d seen people eating this dish before and wanted to try it but I think that was the last time I’ll order it.

While we were downtown we also popped into the fancy magazine shop to see if they finally had the new Wanderlust magazine with Rob’s photo in it. It’s the January issue… it must come by courier pigeon or something, but they finally had it. Rob was very pleased to see his picture and name in it.

    Thursday: So glad you will have a place to focus your energy!
    Bert and I are just home from a lunch and lecture at the Community College. This man has been involved with the United Nations diplomacy.
    His inside story was interesting. Partly critical and partly useful.
    We needed a discussion with people who are informed. Bert would just
    hibernate if I would let him!
