    Goddamnit, my FAFSA shit just apparently got 'corrected' and even though nothing on the page has changed at all since last I was told to review it I suspect this means I have to start waiting for my money all over again. Fucking pissed.

    So I showed up three minutes late to my job training and the guy told me he had already called the next person and it wouldn't work out.

    I am pretty devastated.

    Well in all honesty I could see that, if you can't show up on time for job training (I assume it would have been your first day) then it shows irresponsibility.

    But 'on time' is +/- 5 minutes from the specified time. Granted being the 5 minutes early is a better message than 5 minutes late, but still.

    On a normal day when you have been working a bit yes, but see if I am hiring on a new person and on their first day they are late even by a minute that is not a good sign. I mean it sucks for Cass, but I could see myself doing something similar, barring of course a good reason for being late.

    Probably nothing seeing how our conciousness is not affected in any way by our sexuality. Btw, I'm drunk and no, that was not serious. It's still a pretty bad choice motivated by political correctness but it's not as bad as choosing Astrid Lindgren.

    You are talking about Doris Lessing, right? She's pretty well-regarded in literary circles and it doesn't really strike me as a sop to political correctness.

    Oh yeah she wrote The Cleft, which was I guess a feminist-allegory sci-fi kind of thing. I've not read it but it sounded kind of interesting.

    I've heard quite the opposite and seeing the big story about there not being enough women among the nobel prize winners being dragged around all over Swedens media and reading some of her work, I'm quite contempt with calling it a political correct decision just like Orhan Pamuk.

    edit: It seems the word "contempt" wasn't what I was looking for. I believe I was searching for "content"

    What gender did you put?
    'Preoperative male-to-female transsexual who will, for the foreseeable future, more or less be playing the part of an eclectic male-- doesn't act like the gays you see on television, nor is an obsessive girly-girl-- I'm pretty much pretty average. If you're not cool with androgynous people, go ahead and throw that out; if you wouldn't be comfortable when I was presenting fully female with fake breasts and the works, throw that out too. I need to be comfortable, and that means you have to be comfortable too!' etc.

    I give people more leeway if it's a month-to-month deal but I really push the idea of you have to be cool with this! if they want a six-month or anything like that (though I'm not even really seriously considering anything longer than three months at this time, going through the temp/short occupancy options first).

    There are a lot of ads about gay roommates looking for a third, etc., so I still like my odds being so up-front.

    You've got to admit that it's a lot to take upfront when there are other applicants whose reply to gender is, say, "female". I mean I think it's good that you're making sure to get it out there right up front, and it decreases the chance that you're going to get messed with in the future, but you can't really blame someone for thinking that it might sound like a lot to take on in a roommate.
