Yo! Comment fools!

OK Ok ok
I'm starting to feel like nobody reads this joint anymore. Would you all just leave me a comment now and then? Please?

All right. That's about it kids. Nothing more to report. Get to work commenting on the worlds most boring blog post.

Also! if you happen to be a blogger yourself, get to work on writing some of your own boring blog posts. I miss reading them. I have a lot of time on my hands and it's one of the ways I keep up with you guys.

I'm out.

She's as cold as ice

Today it was beautiful, for about two hours in the middle of the day. When the sun was high in the sky, I was moving fast on my bike wearing about three layers but shedding scarfs and hats. That was the high moment in my day. The rest of the day consisted of cold, cold, cold.

I also applied (at a new low point in my job hunt) to be a sign holder. OUTSIDE!*!#! In the cold! I figure if I get that job it will only motivate me more to find a much, much better job. I've also, always wondered what it was like to be one of those poor people. So, this could be my chance to find out.

To say the least, I'm looking forward to spring.

I'm also keeping my grandma, Mamaw, in my heart and mind while I wait for the seasons to change. Shout out to all of those in VA who are helping her out right now. You guys are awesome. Mamaw, if you get to read this I love you!

Silly emails and guacamole

I applied to a job today. How is that different than any other day you might ask?! And I will say, "That in itself is not so absurd
but what comes next you haven't yet heard".

OK. OK. I know. That was awful.

And that's the thing. I just applied to a job using lines like that. It was an email only application with my cover letter and resume attached. I didn't want it to go unnoticed so I titled it "dynamic and diligent FOH delight" and then I went on to use an acrostic! That's right as in:

Aren't I
Crying a little on the inside?
Reason being:
Oh that I've begun to try
Intelligence insulting
Crap to get a job.

Like that. But hopefully more job winning and less negative. It might reduce my chances of getting the job but I never feel like my chances start off that high and who knows?! It might up my chances too. It is only a restaurant job.

Other than that, I went on a hike with my exercise buddy Marika the other day. It took 2 hours! I'm not that outdoorsy and usually after 2 hours in the beautiful wilderness I would have a headache and a runny nose but luckily good health and fun time prevailed! Here's to being outside. Tomorrow's a run and also a friend dinner and tonight's a friend's show.

This week is shaping up quite nicely (besides the weird antics to get a job).
