I've been Yorked.

But first, the good news:

I've finished the article for the DW book. The first draft went off in May, the revisions were done by September, and neither my editor nor the other editor have any other changes! This is the part where I do jazz hands, happy dances and generally feel better about my life.

The bad news is that I didn't get paid for TAing.


Unlike my friends (at least four cases that I've heard of), no one bothered to contact me to tell me that I got booted. I did have the problem of being a bit too background (having to confirm that yes, I do have a job), but at no point did anyone inform me that my contract wasn't... happening.

The thing is, I've done the work, and now I need to get paid for it. I don't have time or energy for this battle.


EDIT: I can't get enough of the new Mika single. Dancing like nobody's watching is the best thing ever.

EDIT 2: And then there's this piece of awesome from today's Good Morning America

1. I love how the MJ dance moves just show up, almost without comment. He's not like, "Hey, look how I move!", it's "Hey, I'm singing this fun little song" and the dancing's just a more fun option of something to do while singing. Rather than sitting behind the piano or standing still.

2. Lots of female fans, eh? If you look closely, you can see the twink-y looking guys at the veeery back of the crowd. Because the only people who like Mika are straight chicks.

3. Pop music is good times.
3a. As are mirrorball tank tops.

EDIT 3: By some miracle the person who could help me with the paycheque kerfuffle was still at her desk nearly two hours after the work day was over and just gave me a call. I may be able to get my pay on Monday. HOORAY FOR AWESOME PROGRAM ASSISTANTS.
