Somebody Please Entertain Me

I am at my new job for a whole eight hours today.  I’d love to take the opportunity and get lots done, but unfortunately I don’t have access to the system I need to complete THE ONE PROJECT THEY GAVE ME.  And no one is here.  So I blog…

The Pink Fairy Goes Blue:  Yes!  You heard it!  She got a fantabulous job with The Blue Man Group!  Woot!  There is absolutely hope for all us schmoes that have a degree and haven’t yet had the chance to use it!

I’m a Yes girl:  Even if you don’t have a pristine record, you CAN get a job.  I relate to people who have made mistakes.  I feel for people who have been fired or misused and abused by former bosses.  You’re not a failure—your job history doesn’t have to sparkle, it can absolutely have a patina.  We hired someone for my position and even though she had a few marks against her, I really liked her and I think all will work out in the end.  I remember when I interviewed for my first job… I totally almost cried because during the interview they asked me about the time I quit without notice!  Eek!  It was totally traumatizing!

Oh Oprah!:  Oprah gets my gears turning every time I watch her show.  So far this year I have vowed to cut down on my napkin usage, I have tried to clean with all-natural products and reduce my usage of chemicals, I have switched to a more eco-friendly soaps and detergents, and I only use a soap box if the box is biodegradable.  I have also decided that once things calm down a bit, I will look for an opportunity to be a mentor in the community.  In July I want to investigate this whole world called retirement savings.  I also plan to crack down and finish my Cormac McCarthy books.  Actually, I just really need to read all those book club books that I got at Costco in the last couple of years!

TV Time:  Now that all my shows are on hiatus, I have some open slots…here’s what I’m filling them with: Top Chef, My Life on the D-List, The Age of Love (it will make you feel smart and beautiful, I swear!) Last Comic Standing, Arrested Development (on DVD!), Coupling (the UK version on DVD), and La Femme Nikita (boy that J.J. is a rip-off!).

What are you guys and gals up to?

    I too am watching “Arrested Development”, I don’t know how Oprah feels about the show, but I’d like to think that she approves.
