Spring - luna_ann
Since jules1278 nudged me and since I have good news:


It's in Gloucester (yeah, I end up going west instead of east, go figure) with Intercall, a company that sets up video, audio and web conferences. I will be an Operator, who connects people to the conferences and fields their enquiries. Now I'm looking for a room or a flat to share that's close enough to where I work for convenient travel, since I start on the twenty-fifth, that's right, a week on Monday.

I'm so happy to be getting out of this house and to have my foot on the first rung of the job ladder. I only hope that this won't turn out to be as painful as Luxembourg.

Wonderful! Congratulations!
Gloucester? Just watch out for any vengeful hunchbacks roaming around, muttering in iambic pentameter. Especially if he's coming back from a funeral.
(Why isn't it spelled the way it's pronounced? Where is the missing syllable? In a pub somewhere?)
But what does it matter - you've a job! :D :D :D

Heh, well, Richard III didn't actually come from Gloucester, he was just Earl of Gloucester. He was actually born in Yorkshire and was part of the 'York' faction in the Wars of the Roses, along with his older brother, Edward IV. 'Gloucester' was his official title but he was mainly connected to the city of York (and was a very good ruler, they still have fond memories of him today). I know, it's confusing.

I don't know why it's not pronounced in 'Gloucester', it's pronounced in Chichester, Cirencester, but not in Leicester (Lester) or Leicestershire. Probably because it's easier to say 'Gloster' and 'Lester' than put the extra syllable in after the vowel.
