PB Pity Party
I was going to vlog today. Honest.
Then I got all weepy and I decided there was no way I was posting that. It was bad enough the grouchy old security guard patrolling the mall caught me. I went there to park at lunch and he pulled right up to my window and glared in my puffy face. I was in a parking space too! Fucking Nazi. Then I came back to work and forgot my rings on the bathroom counter. As if that weren't bad enough, the secretary felt the need to page me about it over the office intercom. Paging stupid!
Now I'm counting down the hours until I meet my Mom at my Grandmother's house. We're both spending the night there so we can get up early and go Christmas shopping. I'm thinking of making myself a NyQuil cocktail when I arrive. My Grandmother is NOT the typical Grandma. She's not sweet or doting. She doesn't love you unconditionally or spoil you with affection. Instead she likes to compete for my Mom's attention. She'll jab at you when you're not looking, whether vocally or with one of her pointy little talons. Happy times.
On top of all that, it finally hit me today that I am not getting out of this job any time soon. Which really sucks because I just offered to do a side project next year because I thought I wouldn't be here. Yeah I know, I'm a dope. I've been looking and applying for jobs since August to no avail. Not even Petco and CVS will hire me. They hired that goofy looking nineteen year old boy who wears eyeliner! In fact, NONE of the thirty places I applied at have responded.
The job I have pays decent. There's free health care and two weeks of vacation a year. But they keep adding on more duties without more pay. I live over an hour away. I spend almost one paycheck a month on gas. Now my car keeps overheating. I'm living in some kind of parody! The shittiest part is, I can't go to school if I work at this place. Even hauling ass, I still wouldn't make it to the last class on time. So here I sit, applying for anything I find in the hopes that something will rescue me.
The other day I applied to be a painter. A PAINTER!! Sweet Jebus.
So anyway, there are my current woes. Got any of your own? Lay 'em on me bay-be!
I'm just going to get my violin and a tub of cookie dough.
Oh, and this...
...has got to be the coolest blog candy ever! I stole the idea off of Starchy's blog. Click on the link to get one of your own. I'll be posting my tree each Friday so you can add a gift if you want to. Don't worry, it's free. Stingy bastards.
P.S. Don't forget, the WWC words for this week are LANDSCAPE and ORANGE.
Have a fabulous weekend!
