09:15: Argentina, Argentina. The situation has gotten so harsh that one of the most popular gameshows now is Who Wants To Be An Employee?.
Can't say I don't identify just slightly with that lately...
Other foreign affairs issues of interest:
- US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman tells Colombia that it puts at risk US assistance against the drug/guerrilla war goodbye unless it signs a pledge agreeing to send no US citizens to the International Criminal Court. US press reports it as a request. Colombian and Latin American press reports it as pressure.
- US Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill suggests that US Aid to Brazil, to avert a massive crisis, should depent on assurances that it just "won't go out of the country to Swiss bank accounts.". Brazilians are unhappy. But they get $30+ billion in assistance anyhow.

12:01: I still can't get a hold of him. I think it was the hyphens.
12:00: Things are looking a little brighter today--they'll look brighter still when I actually get a job offering or a signed contract. I don't think I'm in any kind of emotional condition to start grad school again, next Wednesday. Twil be difficult.
On other notes, a tracker of stupid linking policies exists. Good for him.

08:22: I don't know how I'll be able to journal online again.

17:52: Not to get into too much detail, but it's been almost three weeks. And that's a good thing.
The Guy is in town this week, and he's staying with me. Boy, does that man work hard--to the point of working himself to a nub of himself, pulling 40-hour days and sleeping less than 6 hours in a four-day period. The things we do to please others.
Had to spend $750 on car repairs today... that's $750 I don't have, can't afford to spend, and can use to pay other things like condo fees. If this funding doesn't come this week, and if I get no bites on the job search front, I'm going to start worrying hard-core.
