I promised to keep you guys updated on my job search and so far, I haven't had any luck. Hopefully, I'll hear back from a restaurant that's just opening up, because I think I have a pretty decent shot at that. (When I went for an application, the lady was on the phone for like twenty minutes and was impressed by how patient I am [hahahahahahahhaha] and said she would tell her boss to keep an eye out for my application, but I had to apply online.) Unfortunately, it wouldn't send for like two and a half days, so I can only hope there are still openings.
Next up on today's new, we are having issues with the car. Mr Fix-It is changing out the spark-plugs and giving it a tune-up, in hopes that will fix the way it stalls out every time you step on the brake for too long. (I'm the one who discovered that, while I was driving. It was not fun.) For some reason, that made Momma want to name the car and that oh so important task has been placed in my hands. So, naturally, I'm passing off that responsibility to people much more fitted for the job. Yep. You guys get to pick. Submit whatever name (or names) you like and I'll randomly select the winner on next Monday. (Hey, if you want to make it a contest, I'll even let you pick what topic I'll write about next Thursday. Sorry, I'm too broke to send a real prize.)
And, I have two last little bits of news. My dear friend Mercedes and I have started a little project. We have a shared blog that started off with the idea of photography and then took on a life of it's own, with tips and how-to's and recipes and a bunch of other shit. We're just getting started, but if you like that kind of stuff, you should check it out.
And finally, this is a monthly reminder that Anti-Bullying Week is November 19-23. I'm working on a project to help bring awareness to it and as I mentioned here. I'd like you all to do the same, but keep things sane and reasonable. And if you want, you should invite your followers to do the same. Anyone to sends me the links to their post(s) will be featured in a post and on a page I will be adding. You must send me the post or I won't know to add it.
Since this was a sucky post, I will leave you with a poem my mom just wrote about how there is no teriyaki beef jerky at the gas station for me and how sad that makes me. (Not really, but I do want some.)
Oh, woe is me
I have no teriyaki
It is a sad day for me
After I pee
I will climb a tree
And cry for teriyaki
And pray for its return to me
This is my ode to teriyaki
Sad, sad day for me
