“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”
― Sun Tzu
It’s been a very busy week, ducklings, and I’m properly knackered.
The sort term gig I have picked up through the end of the year is to be an interim marketing and sales coordinator at a rather impressive property development firm in West London. I’m one week in and I’ve been lucky enough to be decently trained by the outgoing individual in order to get a good grasp on the company and projects. I’m also helping to organize an event that is costing more money than I think I see in a year on extremely short notice–leading to odd non sequitur exclamations like, “Do we have vodka?!” and “More black marble!”–but it’s a good chance to prove myself both competent and useful. I’m actually having a pretty great time!
In the meantime, this weekend will be filled with freelancing and dates with Jeff who is similarly in a crunch time at work, meaning that hangout time is a priority. It’s all things business at the Small Dog residence. Here are your links, kittens, and let me know what you’re doing this weekend in the comments.
Interesting news piece and gallery on the history of mourning clothing.
Maps and the Roman empire. It’s like someone made a clickbait headline just for me!
After a big and rewarding but demanding week, this list perked me right up.
Very interesting piece on the history of the job role of an executioner and his/his family’s place in society. There’s more to it than meets the eye, apparently.
This needs to happen, Disney. Because if your face is wider than your waist, something is actively wrong.
We need to take ALL the day trips.
Fascinating. (Incidentally, we’re right in the middle of cheap housing, thanks.)
My latest piece for The Collaboreat about my favorite London food truck. If you visit, assume that you will be taken to eat here.
