More Growing Up

Have you ever woken up for work, checked your phone, and found out you don't need to work today?  That's a good day.

Working from home has always been a convenience thing.  My commute is four hours round trip.  It's better than most, I think.  A 30 minute drive is a 30 minute hassle to me, while two hours walking, and play games or reading on the bus is not.  But it does take a chunk of my day.

Today I got a minor schedule change, one that I've been working towards for years, that comes with one day working from home a week.  It's more than convenience to me though.  It's a sign that I'm making it as an adult, even if it is a small one.  My long term goal is to find a job that I can do completely from home, anywhere in the world, by the time I'm 55.  I have twenty years.

To counter act this unexpected spurt of maturity, I was finally able to get my hands on one of these numbers. --->

This is an adult size Gir hoodie from Invader Zim.  I first saw one in children sizes when the show had just finished airing.  I knew I needed one the moment I saw that zipper.  But they never made them in men's sizes.

I've spent the last year or so, checking Ebay once in a while for a large enough women's version, with no success.  I even toyed with the idea of to talking to someone I know about having one made.  Then a couple of weeks about, Ebay came through.  A women's 2XL.

Now that I have it, it's everything I thought it would be.  It's like wearing a toy.
