Welcome To My Roller Coaster

The past few days have been a bit of a roller coaster for me. First I discover my bank account was in the red and I had no prospects for a job. (Thankfully the notice didn't take into account the money I deposited from my cat sitting job so I'm ok.)

Then I went on the date yesterday and had a good time but then realized, as I know you knew I would, that I have absolutely no idea where to proceed from here with that.

Today, I sent off three applications and was called by the library in Lady Vader's town and asked to come in for an interview on Wednesday. Remember that test I took with them? (You know, the one where I scored pretty high yet they still rejected me?) Well, they used that to create a pool to draw from instead of placing a new ad. Honestly, I don't really know anything about the job but it's a job and in a library so good enough I say.

I was just so preoccupied with my date that I didn't tell you the movies I saw over the vacation weekend. As you know, …

Harry Grows Up

Since I had a list of people who really are keen on knowing how my date went I'm posting here now while the memories are still fresh. She had a paper to finish so after the movie we just grabbed some coffee. Two topics of conversation came up that really shouldn't happen ever on a first date. The fact I have no friends in this state, although she brought up that topic, and what makes us feel old. Why that last topic shouldn't be brought up? I'm really old and she's not all though Nick at Nite makes her feel old too. I knew going into it that we had a lot in common and I'm referring here to family background and career goals not the trivial stuff that usually impresses me but just talking with her about it was so gratifying. Though not as important, her physical features/fashion sense are the type I'm into. Obviously, I have no idea what she was thinking but I'd be an idiot to think she was that into me so quickly.

I know what this reads like and …

This Afternoon Should Be Fun. Heh Heh.

Gods! You scored 46!

You are most like the God Dionysis! Dionysis is the god of wine, intoxication and creative ecstacy. In short, a party god! He was often having drunken orgies with both men and women, as well as with helpless maidens his centaurs would carry off for him. he had a large following of women who had fallen into a frenzy or "mania". These women were taken by a madness that compelled them to run around in a craze and often times become violent. Many of these frenzied outbursts had a strong sexual content. Just don't forget while having all this fun that there is more to life than getting off!

Kill Me Now...

The Prioress
You scored 28% Cardinal, 56% Monk, 52% Lady, and 32% Knight!

You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint after your life is over.
You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you can be happy that you're an individual.

Stuff Happens

Yesterday, was our church fair. Once again, I helped my father sell the morning coffee and donuts. (Actually, this year we had only pastries.) Aside from the early morning during which time I'd rather be sleeping, it went very well and this despite the fact we kept having to make more coffee. For the second year in a row, we made the fair a two day event and this year it seems to have been a very good idea. I think we pulled in at least a little more money than usual. The chilly temps helped: it felt rather Christmasy out there.

As usual, the fair includes a dinner on Saturday night. This year, the people in charge wanted to do a bean supper. I now know why you don't see bean suppers here in Connecticut. Nobody down here knows a damn thing about them. You don't have mixed veggies and pumpkin soup, crappy pumpkin soup at that. Ok, the beans and ham were good but not having homemade brown bread and cole slaw is disgraceful when we, from Maine, live right next do…

Honestly, I Just Drink It...

You scored 47 % on Knowledge and 41 % on Fun! I'm amazed!

Not that it matters.. at the end of the day we all just want one thing when drinking wine: Get Buzzed! :) Nevertheless, it doesn't hurt to actually know a little about that 'sunlight packed in a glass'.. I hope you enjoyed my test - cheers!

A Plethora of Things to Say

First, I want to comment that, after a very dry spell, women are coming out of the woodwork, some maybe literally, expressing at least some interest in me. I would not describe any of them in even POI stage as of yet but it's keeping me busy.

Next, I finally got paid for my cat sitting and was totally ripped off. First off, my mother agreed that I would be paid fifty dollars less a day that I should have been. I really don't blame her for that but even at that small amount I should have received another hundred dollars more than I did. If I do that again, this woman will pay the full price or I'm not doing it. This is why I should not start my own business unless I could find someone to handle the business side for me. Any takers?

Let's see what else to talk about... Oh yes, I'm still unemployed. I had thought applying at the local mall was a good idea but when I called them yesterday, one of the stores was still reviewing resumes and hadn't started interviewing …

Diva's Lament (From Spamalot)

What ever happened to my part?
It was exciting at the start.
Now we're halfway through Act 2
And I've had nothing yet to do.

I've been offstage for far too long
It's ages since I had a song.
This is one unhappy Diva
The producer's have deceived her.
There is nothing I can sing from my heart.
Whatever Happened to My Part?

I am sick of my career
Always starting second gear
Up to here, with frustration and with fears.
I've no Grammy no Rewards,
I've no Tony Awards,
I'm Constantly replaced with Britney Spears

Whatever Happened to My Show?
I was a hit, now I don't know.
I'm with a bunch of British Knights,
Prancing 'round in woolly tights.

I might as well go to the Pub
They've been out searching for a shrub
Out shopping for a Bush
Well they can kiss my Tush
It seems to me they've really lost the plot

Whatever Happened to My
I'll Call my Agent, Dammit
Whatever Happened to My
Not Yours, Not Yours,
By My,

This Doesn't Seem That Accurate To Me

Business Minded
Awe you did it. You deserve a cookie! 50!

You are the perfectionist, the organizer, the dictator. If there’s an answer you will find it, even if it is not the right answer you will enforce it and nobody will question you. A great mind but not always great for the home life, where you excel in one thing you tend to suffer in another.

Thank You Al Stewart

Well, I'm back from taking care of all those cats. It was actually one cat who had the the run of most of the house and 9 others that stayed in one bedroom; two of which I never saw the whole time. The biggest challenge was changing the litter boxes twice a day. One of the littlest kittens escaped from the room about a half dozen times and was harder and harder to catch.

I spent most of my time watching old TV series and movies. I watched episodes of: Magnum PI including the pilot, Hunter including an episode the DVD box hyped had Ed O'Niell in it but also included "Fran McDormand" who perhaps is more well known, Charlie's Angels including the episode that aired originally the day I was born which also happens to be Jaclyn Smith's birthday..., Quantum Leap, Remington Steele, Sledge Hammer, Father Dowling and The Avengers. All series Lady Vader probably doesn't remember since she was under six when they originally aired. (OK, The Avengers and most of…

Computer Savant
47 % Nerd, 82% Geek, 56% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Geek and Dork, earning you the title of: Computer Savant.

People confuse you with a Nerd all of the time. You aren't some genius, like some people have said, and didn't/don't really like school all that much (and you especially hated some of the social aspects, like getting mocked). It's just that you have some passions and interests that you're extremely into/good at, and this has placed you in circles with other social outcasts, some of whom are exceptionally bright.

The awesome thing about being where you are is that you get to hang out with an elite group (though you'd probably rather be alone, or with only the…

Soon, A Real Post Will Come.

Your parole officer called. You scored 256!

From your head to your lack of undergarments, you are the Flower Child, epitome of love, free will, and mojo. Yeah, baby! While the Flower Child might seem odd at times, the truth of the matter is, the Flower Child is ALWAYS odd. No matter what anyone says, even your psychotherapist, you are NOT getting any better. And people will not go completely vegetarian just because you protest. More meat for them. What the Flower Child DOES have, however, is a free spirit, and love of most people. This sense of selflessness might soon lead to many more nuns. Or priests. Or nuns with priests. Whatever. Peace out, dudes.
