Three Dog Night

Ok, it's actually only two dogs but it will be for three nights. Yes, my pet sitting business seems to have taken off in this particular town anyway. This time it's for Jessie and Celeb. These dogs are young and spry, or at east younger, so no meds and thankfully I don't have to walk them but since Celeb is actually the grandmother's dog, there's only one run for both to share. If I'm lucky, they'll follow my commands and not run around the neighborhood but this worries me.

Also, they don't have cable so my Friday night TV viewing could be seriously curtailed. I brought Book II of the Star Wars "Force Heretic" trilogy with me. The book is terrible but I may just get bored enough to finish reading it.

In case I forget, I also will be taking of Magic the cat again on Saturday with a possibility of Sunday. Busy, Busy, Busy.

A couple days ago, a video dating service called to ask me to take a survey then called again yesterday for me to set up an appointment to meet with them. Someday I may have to try something like that but I really don't think I can afford it right now.

Still no word on my mother's car but my aunt had to tell my mother about how her car was stolen once and found stripped and at the bottom of a pond. Those who know my mother can imagine how well that went over...

Hee Hee!





You Are 26 Years Old



26





Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.




Ok, first I apparently belong in the year before I was born but am a year younger at heart. I guess no one really has to tell me to act my age!

In other news, I found a job opening up in Waterbury, a place which I have referred to as a one of the Circles of Hell on more than one occassion. I was only an English minor in school but I think that's known as irony...

Last night I was watching SNL and was amazed at 50 Cent's lyrics. He didn't swear but "lick my lollipop" and "she likes it from behind." must have drove someone insane. Okay, maybe family values loons are asleep before midnight... Speaking of SNL, is it just me or has the funniest sketches the past few weeks been the opening teaser?

Crime In CT

I finally have something important to discuss. My mother's car was stolen right out of the driveway. Her glasses were in it so now she can't see well enough to read anything.

To add to the intrigue, I was home when it happened and heard nothing. Her car doesn't have rear speakers or even a tape deck so no kid would want to take it for a joy ride. We don't know the exact time of the incident so it could be anywhre by now but hopefully it's still in the metropolitan area.

The police accused me of taking it. (Of course, how are they to know I don't drive....) They also informed us of the fine if this was a scam. Those who know my family, do you think we'd do that? No, but I understand why the mentioned it.

My mother is extremely shook up. I'm afraid she'll never be the same. At least not for awhile...

I'll end on a happier note:





You Belong in 1976



1976





If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

Weekend Update

My readers can probably imagine how happy I am that the Patriots won the Super Bowl. I still find it amusing that a local newscaster said that all that was needed now was the Celtics to win the championship. If that indeed does happen, as great as that would be, Lady Vader's comments about child sacrifice would definitely apply. The Celtics once again suck this season.

It appears that The Flash might actually appear in an episode Justice League Unlimited this season. I'll keep you posted since I know you all care.

I think my job interview went well the other day but I'll let you know how it really turned out when I hear the news.

Two Things

It's official, Enterprise has been cancelled. WTF? As I've mentioned, this season they are finally doing the stories I wanted them, and expected them, to do all along. This only points the blame on two people Rick Berman and Brannon Braga.

There was a time, if one considers Roddenberry the "God of Trek", Berman was Jesus. (Afterall, his birthday is December 25th.) We all realize now that this is not the case. He's credited with co-creating DS9 but I realize now he had less to do with it than I thought. Brannon Braga is alright if there's someone competant to cover his ass. First Contact was a totally awesome movie but was co-written with Ronald D. Moore. They should have been fired long ago.

Oh, I have a job interview on Wednesday with the UConn Law Library....

Job Hunt Update

So, I won't be going to West Palm Beach after all. I talked to them on the phone the other day and was told that had 40 applicants. Because I had applied before I actually received my degree, my name was removed from the list. Logically, this makes sense since, well, we all know what happened to me this past May in that regard. If you don't remember, please refer to the archives. I was a little upset by it but the job not last but low on the list of jobs I really actually wanted. Right now, Cambridge and Naples are at the top of the list and still in play.

In other job news, the listings are a little stale. Oh well...
