Job ops

Ok, so I've put myself prostrate before the job market yet again. I applied at Flower's work and at Cate's work. Some say I'm crazy to want a job. But as Charly put it to me, "Job's are great. I recommend them for everyone." You try being unemployed for nine months without enough money to actually do anything and see what kind of crazy you go. I'm glad I have my pool leagues.

Speaking of pool leagues... My Wednesday night team consists of Woody (ex-boyfriend, suspended for OWI and driving under suspension), Patti (surrogate mother, suspended for 2nd offense OWI), Chris (friend, suspended for OWI), and Miranda (me, active license but no gas money). Chris told be about his recent infraction by suggesting that we change the team name from Age & Treachery (as in ... wins out over youth & beauty every time) to We Can't Drive. It took me a minute.
Imagine:
Chris: We should change our Wednesday team name to We Can't Drive.
Me: (laugh) Yeah.
Kirsten (Thurs night team member): (confused look)
Me: (to K) Oh, well see Woody and Patti both have suspended... (to C) Wait a minute... you mean you... (C nods) Oh... shit.

I'm glad I quit drinking when I turned 21. Wow, I'm not a drinker, a smoker, a drug user. I'm not even on caffeine anymore. I'm not a prude, I just live like one. :P

So, what to do for the next 2 hours until I leave to get Patti. Hrm.

Job applications
Congrats on getting your resume up to date and sent out so quickly! I know that's the kind of thing that is easy to procrastinate.

I can see it now. Shoulder angel says "get that resume prettied up and sent out!" Shoulder devil says "Screw that! We have so many other things to do today...such as taking a nap. Besides, pool hustling needs no resume!"

Conversation tangent: if you haven't seen The Emperor's New Groove, rent it. It's the greatest Disney movie ever made, and it has fabulous shoulder angels/devils.

Ooh, my ears were burning *chuckles*. Yes, definitely need to see that movie. Supporting the Disney megacorp can only bring you power and wealth! Muahahahahahahahahahaha!

I am laughing my ass off! That's a lot of trouble you took for a joke! Do not let the Shoulder Beings die. I look forward to seeing their opinions in the future. ^_^

No, don't see it! It's just a ploy to build sympathy for the heathen Llama-ites. They're evil, I tell you, EVIL!!

Bad news...
Sounds like the job at our place is past accepting resumes. :( But it can't hurt to put one in anyway!

No takebacks!
The job was still listed on the website, so they have to take the résumé and cover letter, no matter what their shoulder devil says.
