47.  How do you like your eggs?  Scrambled or omeleted, please.

But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm goin' crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe . . . "

Sorry to hear about your recent turn. You might think about applying at Masonic. They've got 1400 jobs, and there are always a number of them open at any given time.

Just do me the kindness of not applying for a job in the HCC Dietary. I wouldn't mind crossing paths with you, but I shan't like to think about spending 40 hours a week sharing oxygen with The Presageful One.

Oh geez, how could I not have given more thought to you being behind this avatar? ::laughs::

I'll give a cursory glance, but really . . . how good would that decision be for both of us? We can't handle more than blog posts at this point. I will never get it.

It's a big place, and the bennies are nice. And it pays two bucks more than most of the jobs in the area.

And, when you find something better, you can always leave.

As most of my co-workers like to say, it's better than working fast food...

There, now I've got a nick. Just for you, d.

D said...

You put an octopus on my lotus. (T_T)

J said...

Yes, i suppose i did at that.

Grats on your good news. So, does the Rapture start at Midnight, or does it wait for Obama to get sworn in?

I look for you on your WoW server, from time to time, calling out "Fidget's Mom, are you online?" I get some odd responses...

But, I'm used to that.

awe, darlin', i'm sorry.

i've only recently been internet-stalking you.

i miss my amsterdam every day. i think that seeing him would only make it worse.

when my hamster, Yoshi, died, I promised myself i'd never get another one. It took years for me to decide i might try again. Then, early this year, began the hamster vs. gerbel debate. Finally, logic reminded me of my issues with untrainable, ungreatful little monsters that only use me for food, money, and safety, and i decided I was far too fond of living alone to get a pet.

Instead, I have a mummified cat from Big Lots. I call her "Patches," and she'll never leave me...
