  • slashababy lotrips holiday fic exchange (10th anniversary, I just realized that!)

  • a gorgeous photo of Sean Astin and Billy from RingCon! I tried to make an icon but it was all muddy :-(


    (via astinland and seanastinfan.blogspot.com -- there's more here)

  • I finished our 2011 taxes! (self-employment made things complicated, extension runs to October 15 so it was a Deadline)

  • Had a scare at work but did not get fired, just asked to telecommute more. My contract's up in December and is not getting renewed mainly because my boss wants someone to be her acolyte rather than her equal. Sigh.
ETA: fixed the LJ link, d'oh

Yes, I did, but thank you. Aren't they great?

Additionally, congratulations on completing your taxes. The process sounds daunting - I know self-employment is a whole other ball of wax.

I'm also pleased to see SlashABaby (did I write that correctly?) come 'round again. It will be fun to see how it all unfolds again this year.

The job scene - that sounds distressing. I hope things go as you would want them to in that department. I know I'm overdue for changes in my own job. I'm paid well enough, and I know people appreciate me, but the job itself has come close to eating all of us alive for too long now. We've also changed our physical location this summer, and that has been every bit as upsetting as a personal move. No one knows when anything is, things aren't running as smoothly as they should, etc. It's all getting very old.

And thank you again for pointing out such lovely pictures. :)

Oh my god, that is a gorgeous photo! Thank you!

I'm sorry about your contract not being renewed, but with that boss -- eh.

Oh that is a stunningly gorgeous picture, just lovely. Billy's eyes seem to shine on from my screen.

Hope you can get a new job really soon.

Yes, photos for my heart!

I'm not freaking out about the job sitch, but it will require me to get off my ass and be more energetic about arrangements, and right now, that's painful to even contemplate.

Are these just about the best photos of Sean and Billy ever? I especially love the ones of each of them separately. And the set of 4 is just too funny! :-D

They are amazing, separate and together. Peter Bechers is my favorite now. I guess I should credit him, whoops

Congrats on slashababy's 10th anniversary! I'm looking forward to it!

That is an absolutely lovely photo.

I'm sorry to hear about your contract. It's a shame when you end up with a boss like that. In the end, that's not just bad for the individual employees, but the company too. *hugs*

Great photo. Rats on the job front. But it was invaluable in the sense that it did prove to yourself that you could do it, and now it leaves you free to find something that works for you better.

You make such good points! I'm hoping for the best. Gotta read my old work email I guess.

The picture really is fab!

Sorry to hear about your contract ending, but that boss doesn't sound like a person you or anyone should work for. I hope something else comes up.

And oh, taxes. I will need to do a declaration for the last year now as well. Time to try and understand the UK tax system, argh...

I tried to get an accountant this year but it was even more of a hassle than running the software (and estimating all over the place)

Squee over Slashababy being 10!

Totally unsquee about your contract. You have my very best thoughts and wishes on the universe unfolding for you like it should.

Beautiful picture, just gorgeous.
