Since jobs seem to be the focus of this Pubski, I am still trying not to think about mine. No future in it, no future anywhere else that I can see (at least not until I can start teaching full time). Basically, all I can say is that my job pays the bills and does not make society actively worse.

Greek is continuing; starting to actually read the NT now, which is pretty dang awesome I have to say. A lot of the more obnoxious things I remember from studying Classical Greek are much less of an issue by the time of Koine, even if they do have a tendency to overuse certain prepositions (the dictionary entry for one of them is like 6+ two-column pages). There are some lovely turns of phrase, even if they weren't necessarily on the stylistic level of the great Attic orators from a few hundred years earlier.

We're also just over a week away from the return of MST3K!
