The One Where Laura Gets an Actual Job

Believe it or not, I now have an actual part-time job. Last month a friend of mine bought the old Metronome Ballroom (I mean "Metronome Dance Center") in San Francisco. Since one of the investors is the mother of Dancing With The Stars' Cheryl Burke, the facility has been renamed "Cheryl Burke Dance." I kind of miss the old name, but after all I was a student there for like seven years so old habits die hard. Anyway, the new Operations Manager (also a friend) asked me to do some very basic maintenance work on their web site, and so I agreed to spend a few hours a week doing what I can.

My first day of work was yesterday and while it was weird to think that I was somewhat gainfully employed for the first time since June of 2000, it also was fun to have an actual place to go, and a thing to do that is so important to someone that they'd actually pay me money for it.

Don't expect any big changes on the web site, my task for now is to make the web site actually match what is in their printed monthly class/party/workshop calendar.
