*****jasper, the boy kitty the hubs and the kids rescued and and brought home in october, had his manly bits realigned yesterday. we're hoping he calms down just a schooch. although, really? he's a cute baby.
*****a few days after i lost my job i got on twitter and linked in and all those social networking things, mainly because i was part of them professionally for the job and wanted to keep my fingers in whatever pie might come along. i still have not figured out what i should do w/ either. obviously i am not twittering the stuff i'm writing there because i'm hoping a potential employer will just be...you know, tweeting, and scoop me up and hire me.
*****i have had two meetings since being laid off. i have applied for at least two dozen jobs but these two meetings evolved from blindly sending my resume to two local companies--one a magazine and another a pr/ad agency. both small companies, as is the owner/founder is the only employee. absolutely nothing wrong w/ that, but, in both instances the people were more about picking my brain as to what connections i might have, rather than what freelance (since they obviously were not looking for full time employees) jobs they might have available.
******i get insanely happy when actors i like work together. before LOST the hubs and i were addicted to west wing (you may remember this if you read the blog for a long time) and i do still love it. however, we're now watching in plain sight and mary (main character) was on west wing and now TWO former west wingers have been on ips. i LOVE that shit! and? on house? (another show i love. i might have a unnatural love for hugh laurie's character) cuddy? played a prostitute on west wing. for some reason things like this make me insanely giddy. for absolutely no reason.
*******the kids have been coming home from school for a couple of weeks now, rather than going to daycare. today the girl and i were sitting outside after she got home (she gets home about an hour and 10 mins before the boy--i guess that's the trade off since she has to get on the bus at 6:45am) and she was telling me about these two 8th grade boys who've started talking to her on the bus. (red flag goes up in my head and i immediately think they're hitting on her) she was quite nonchalant about it and doesn't think they were hitting on her. hmmm. then we talked about how she feels about me not working. she said she likes it and that i have more time to clean....and to spend with them. she said that gives me like 15 more hours a week with them. 15 more hours to talk to them and be with them. her words. wow.
