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?
