Update: job was earmarked for someone *else's* trapped spouse. I'm beginning to think my spouse will have to apply for jobs elsewhere, to force them to actually interview me for... anything.
(I did decline to apply for an encore performance at the Religious Director position, on the grounds of not wanting to put myself in the middle of a huge academic-politics argument. Also, I'm still pretty annoyed with the people who... are that person's bosses.)
Also, due to academic calendar shenanigans, there are three weeks at the end of the semester when I have, essentially, NO babysitting. Aaaaarrggh.
