It is kind of scary what people with too much time and a love of the female anatomy study. However, I have to admit they have a point here.

Check out Britney.
Today I have several things:

My patience has lost a lot of weight recently. It must be on a diet?

Those bushin30seconds ads are pretty darn funny. Some of them aren't funny though, then they're just depressing. Geez, I could do SUCH a good job running this country! Better than Bush anyway.

Also, anyone else think this jerk is getting off pretty easy? What justice.

No, no, give ME a home! Me first!

Oh wait.
In case anyone out there still thinks our President is doing a good job ...

Underwriter gods, give me a home I beg of you!

Martians! I love the Martians. (sorry I'm late, but it's still funny sot HA!
Happy Birthday Rich!!!! Great page with the bum wines. I personnly loved the description of Thunderbird: "the undisputed leader of the five in foulness of flavor" and the special warning that the raters gave it: "This light yellow liquid turns your lips and mouth black! A mysterious chemical reaction similar to disappearing-reappearing ink makes you look like you've been chewing on hearty clumps of charcoal."
A day late and a dollar short, but Happy Birthday, Rich!

Martians! Martians stopped the Rover!
Happy Birthday Rich! You'll be gray soon enough...until then, enjoy life without diapers.
God, well, I made it to 24, which is almost 25, which is almost my mid twenties. And we all know, once you are past those, it's all down hill.

By the way, I'd like to share a webpage with everyone else. When you are looking for a fine quality wine, you should consult this handy rankings page. Buy one of these and you'll be the life of the party!

My impression of the job (since I haven't started yet) is that I go to the airports around the area and meet teachers and students who are coming to DC through the company. I think they have this job as a part of customer service to help calm down the teacher who just realized she brought twenty 12-year-olds to Washington DC with her. Then I take them to baggage claim and their bus. Then, when they leave DC, I help them check-in at the airport and then sit around and wait for their plane to leave. In addition to actually receiving a paycheck to do this, I get compensated for my mileage, and i have the option to be "on call" from 8 pm to 8 am, for which I would get paid extra, although most likely I would just be able to sleep the whole time.
Final Assessment: I get paid to do nothing. :)

What, exactly, does a roamer do?
Well, you'll all be happy to know i've rejoined the ranks of servitude and my title will be "roamer," so make fun of me at will. However, my impression of the job so far is that i get paid money for sitting around in places other than my house. Woo!
Yo, I'm in class all this week in case you're wondering why I'm not on IM. If you really need to talk to me, hit me up at smittyhoo@hotmail.com

The class is Data Junction - not like you care! Heh heh.

Wow...the potential to have more than one job offer to consider. I wonder what that's like...?
Hey everyone! I got a job offer...woohoo! Trying to decide to take it or not...still waiting to hear back from other places.

I don't get CR diets.
(Calorie Restrictive)
It's the aim of prolonging life by slowing metabolism by not eating much at all...which of course restricts exercise, and exercise is the one proven determiner of life length and quality of life while you're around. It might work, but why would you want to sacrifice for 70 years to live an extra 10 when all your friends will be dead?

On cnn.com .... "He told the operator he thought their may be another victim. "

Their may be another victim? Well? Is their another victim? We want to know if their is another victim, and if there family is very upset. After all, they're are many victims with no families, but if their is another victim, then we should let they're family know about it.

Rich, the sooner you accept the fact that you're old, the sooner you'll allow the wisdom of your years to wash over you. Then, you'll wish that you'd learned more during those years.

I used to think that I'm not old. I never really felt old... until the day I heard Guns 'n Roses on the classic rock station. I started to get worried. Then I heard REM on the classic rock station. Let me say that again. Someone at Clear Channel thinks that REM is old enough to be considered classic rock. Can anyone tell me when this happened?

I guess in my mind, classic rock will always be music in the 1960-1979 range.

Would you care for an apple pie with that? You can get 2 for a dollar.

The corner piece was brought from New York to hold the China that for the last month and a half has been in our bedroom on the coffee table - now I just have to find some place to put it.

Just came back from the Dr. can't do anything about the pooping - sent the puking home with her mommy.

Oh Joy, oh Joy.

Why do you have a corner piece of furniture in your living room and can I get a number one, super-sized?

I'm sure the day will get better (pooping and puking stops at some point, right?), but I would totally kill for a Big Mac right now.
OK - It's one of those days. I've been screamed at, puked on (several times), changed numerous "crappy" diapers, I have a corner piece of furniture in the middle of my living room and it's FREEZING out. This is one of those days when I look at the $30K diplomas sitting against the wall and wonder what in the world I'm doing. I wouldn't mind working at McDonald's right about now.
I think we're alone now!
Now here is a list I wouldn't want to be on...

When it snows, or your team wins the Superbowl, all is well, apparently.
Yes, file for unemployment. Just be sure your previous employer isn't a big fat liar who will keep you from getting unemployment just to be spiteful.

Interesting story. Who believes the woman who said she lost the ticket? I don't. Clever ruse though.
Leila, you should try the age-old pasttime of filing for unemployment! That way, you won't be making absolutely "nothing" and you won't feel bad about spending it. Get some of those tax dollars back!

Today I spent money that I didn't earn because I don't have a job. Go me!
Nope, "anger" is not adequate. Rage is closer. Fuming hatred is even better.

One day, I will relax.
I am going to see Lord of the Dorks: Return of the Dweeb with my little brother today. I expect it to be coma inducing.
"Anger" does not properly describe what it is that I'm feeling today. Why is it that the people you have to give your money are the most incompetent people on Earth? What the hell happened to service? What is wrong with people? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Speaking of other people having control over your life but not telling you what's going on, and also speaking of evil little demon voices, and also speaking of finding things out soon, and also slightly speaking of not doing any work but still getting paid, -

Wait, now I can't remember.
That's why you need to find a job where you don't actually have to do any work but they still pay you. On something totally unrelated, most of you probably know I applied to two schools at UCLA for MBA and Urban Planning. But what you probably don't know is that I will find out by the 21st of January whether or not I got into the MBA program. Anyway, on to the point of this post...I've become quite taken with going to the admissions website and waving my mouse over Linda Baldwin's head (she is the head of admissions). Now, while doing this, make a little demon voice and say over and over again, "I control the rest of your life. I know the future but I'm not telling you!" Here, you try:

Linda
Don't worry Leila, I can tell you from recent experience that eventually, someone will pay you. Then, you will miss unemployment. But not much.
Hi. My name is Leila and I am unemployed. I liked it for 3 weeks, but now I want someone to pay me.
Ok, so I'm making up for lost posting here...here's a really good recipe that's pretty quick, cheap, easy, and everyone loves...sweet potato fries!

Ingredients:
Sweet Potatoes (1 per person)
Fresh Sage (found in herbs section of grocery store)
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 450.
Cut SPs in half lengthwise.
Place SPs with cut edges down on cutting board.
Cut SPs in 1/4" strips lengthwise
Dump SPs and appropriate amount of olive oil in bowl.
Add salt and pepper and mix.
Arrange on cookie sheet, put in oven about 15 minutes until SPs are a little brown.
Chop up a few sage leaves, mix with a little olive oil in mixing bowl.
Dump fries when done in bowl, mix it all up, serve.
So, I'm back from vacation...I haven't really worked at all since December 10th. I've been at work a few days but didn't do anything. Pretty good, huh? I wouldn't say I was missing it though, Bob! Life wasn't all fun and games, though, I refinished my foyer, which was quite a joy, shortening my life span with the cancer and all. Three items of note related to that:

1. The solvent dissolves its own metal container.
2. The solvent dissolves my elbow when I am a dumbass and accidentally touch the solvent.
3. The solvent goes airborne and dissolves your hands INSIDE the gloves if you're not careful.

Next time, hire a professional!


Ah, back to work. I had 2 five-day weekends and I don't feel like I've relaxed a day. I need a vacation!
