So, I don't want to be one of those people that goes for more than a week without updating, since those people make my work days a little bit more sad and boring, so I will tell you three things.
  • After this Christmas season ends, I will never ever work retail again. I dislike enabling silly consumerist wankers. In other words, I hate helping people buy things, but decided to politicize my statement to make me sound better.
  • I have been so tired lately I can literally go to sleep at the drop of the hat. At crap job #1, my boss never comes to work before 10, and rarely makes it in before noon, so I have been using the morning to drift in and out of sleep at my desk. I am not proud, and I think the end result is that I am more tired, but it is difficult to occupy my mornings otherwise and like I said, I am really tired.
  • Saying this probably makes you wonder why my job is so crappy, if my boss isn't there in the morning and I get to sleep. But let me assure you that it is crappy. Indeed, this week I have been working on astral projection, which, if you don't recall from vaguelly supernatural books you read in the 5th grade, is when your soul leaves your body and goes and does other stuff (usually evil) then comes back. I need to do this so that my soul can vacate my body when she talks to me. It hasn't really worked yet, except I sometimes start shaking when she speaks to me.

Wow, astral projection, need to try that when talking to this drummer I've been playing with recently. I've already tried sighing loudly and hiding behind things when he asks me difficult questions that he doesn't want to hear the answers to anyway.

While I know nothing of the horrors of monsterboss, I'm with you in spirit. Maybe we'll meet one day drifting through an astral plain. I'll bring some spray paint so we can deface some public property...

Ruth, can you teach me astral projection? I'd love to know how. Also, on an unrelated note, how many seasons of "The L Word" are there?

there are two seasons of the L-Word on DVD, the third will be out next summer. I reiterate my recommendation.
I haven't figured out this astral projection business yet. However, a quick search on Amazon yields Mastering Astral Projection, which seems to be quite well reviewed! Perhaps I will put it on my Xmas list and report back.
