My Freakshow

File under repetition @ 11:42 am

My life is all about filing right now. I got me a temp job for a couple of days a week for an uncertain amount of weeks, and its in a law office filing papers. Not bad work. Of course it is just a matter of time until my creative impulses come unbound and I'm found locked in the supply room constructing giant paper-mache tikis out of pleadings and appeals documents, but until such time its cool. Problem is that I got me a new desk at home, which has a built-in filing cabinet, which lead me to start the process of going through all my personal files. So when I'm not filing papers in an Oakland highrise, I'm doing so at home. Consequently, my fingers are all stingy from paper-cuts. Funny that I do so much with power tools and sanders and such in my workshop, but that in the end it is the paperwork that causes me injury. There's probably a metaphor or some shit to be found in that fact.

Ahem. Chas, sir?

May I present to the Misses Rubber Fingers?

(They really should have introduced you to each other at the office. Quite the faux pas, really.)

I forgot that those things existed. I'll have to hit them up for some. Thanks!

I don't know how much they still use NCR paper in law, but my fingertips used to crack and split from the chemicals in it. If you do touch a lot of it... wash your hands.

Thanks! I brought some lotion with me the last time and that seems to have helped.
