One Crazy Week!

Last week was so crazy! I went on a job interview and had my car stolen. I have put my resume out there to see what opportunities there are. I have realized (after 10 years) that the only way to increase my income is to find a different employer - I have maxed out and hit my ceiling. The only thing that has kept me at my current job is my friends. I work with my best friend, Jeanette, we have know each other since Jr. Kindergarten and love every minute we're together! I have also made a lot of life long friends that I couldn't imagine my life without...I love you Sarah and Ashley and book club girls! But I have been a rectangle for a while now and I feel like the time is right and I feel a good vibe, not an anxious vibe about making a career move. The first interview went well, it was with a consulting company that will help find job opportunities to place me and they are actually full time with benefits kind of jobs, not the "Would you like to buy a set of knives?" kind of job. I am excited about the first possibility and will hopefully have my second interview this upcoming week. Wish me luck!

The other thing that kept me busy this week was my car. My car was stolen on Friday night from my parking spot just down the block from my apartment. I found out when I walked to my car Saturday morning on my way to go to work and found no car. So I called the police and did that whole hassle thing. They found out that the my license plate number was run at 5:20am a few towns over, but nothing was done because they didn't know the car was stolen. I was kind of bummed. My car is a piece of shit and needs alot of work that I can't afford but it was paid off and that felt good. I have been contemplating buying a new car, but financially that isn't an option right now (hence the job search) and my insurance would have given me the value of the car. Low and behold, the car was found in the parking lot of a bar about 10 miles away that evening and nothing was touched. There was no apparent damage and nothing was I got to take her home. I had mixed feelings about this, I was excited at the possibility of a new car but also pissed about the hassle and money aspect. I am thinking that because things worked out so well with the car situation that maybe the new job situation will be lucky too!

Space Rules!

Cosmic cluster: An image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Helix nebula, a cosmic starlet often known for its vivid colors and resemblance to a giant eye. The nebula, located about 700 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius, belongs to a class of objects called planetary nebulae.

Hmmmmmmmm #2

Obama: I'm running for president!
Sen. Barack Obama officially entered the race for president Saturday in the Illinois capital, urging Americans who hear "destiny calling" to join him in "the unfinished business of perfecting our union," then headed out to start campaigning in earnest in the battleground state of Iowa.
Doesn't he have sheep to heard??? Will he really have the time to dedicate to the country and it's best interest??? Concerened voters need to know!

The Luckiest Baby In The World

Anna Nicole Smith died Thursday at a South Florida hospital after being discovered unconscious in her hotel room. The reality TV star, Playboy Playmate and former Guess model was 39. She checked into the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, on Monday with her lawyer and boyfriend, Howard K. Stern and never checked out! I felt sorry for her when her son died and was shocked that she was allowed to have more children, but her little girl is the luckiest baby girl in the world since she won't have the detrimental effects of being "raised" by Anna Nicole. Rest in peace Anna Nicole, you will not be missed on earth!

Thanks DMV and Jesse White!

Dear Jesse White and the Department of Motor Vehicles:

I never thought I would be thanking you since I have had nothing but bad times at your facilities, but you really came through. You are saving thousands from the frustration of road rage and the irritation that is caused by bad drivers. You are going to be saving many lives, and for this I am thankful. The last thing I would imagine is you guys doing your jobs but I am in awe of your foresight and protocol. Thank you DMV for failing my grandmother on her driving test!



*** My Grandma just turned 80 and should have never been allowed a drivers license. She never drove because my grandpa always did all the driving, but now that he is almost blind my grandma has been behind the wheel. She just recently went to the DMV to renew her license and she failed the test. It is such a good thing that she isn't driving anymore, she has had more accidents and shit happen since she started driving and it is better for everyone that she failed!
