The other day a friend and former co-worker sent me info on a communications job in OKC. The money was quite a bit more than I’m making now and the employer was interested in someone who had both journalism and corporate writing experience. I didn’t pursue it. I like what I’m doing. I’m not sure I’ve made a difference in any kid’s life yet, but going to work knowing there is that possibility each and every day is nice. That’s something you’ll never have as a public relations whore.
The other day I bought the new special edition of Silence of the Lambs. That is just damn near a perfect movie. It had been a long time since I saw the whole thing uncut. Everything just seems to work. That image after Hannibal escapes and the cops come in to find the Francis Bacon-inspired crime scene is just fantastic. The disemboweled cop hanging on the side of the cage is just so striking. And, of course, it’s a great novel, too. I was lucky enough to grab a hardcover copy before the movie ever came out.
Which just reminds me that I have my own writing to attend to. It’s been too long since I really did anything. A little editing here and there. Tonight, there’s a ton of papers to grade. Spending less time online would help …
