1. My first job was working in an Orange Juice factory, but I got canned. I couldn't concentrate.

2. Then I worked in the woods as a Lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

3. After that, I tried to be a Tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it - mainly because it was a sew-sew job.

4. Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factory, but that was too exhausting.

5. Then, I tried to be a Chef - figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just didn't have the thyme.

6. I attempted to be a Deli Worker, but any way I sliced it I couldn't cut the mustard.

7. My best job was a Musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

8. I studied a long time to become a Doctor, but I didn't have any patience.

9. Next, was a job in a Shoe Factory. I tried but I just didn't fit in.

10. I became a Professional Fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

11. I managed to get a good job working for a Pool Maintenance Company, but the work was just too draining.

12. So then I got a job in a Workout Center, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

13. After many years of trying to find steady work, I finally got a job as a Historian - until I realized there was no future in it.

14. My last job was working in Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

Gee, when they told me my stuff was viral I didn't think it was contagious

The boy may have some socially redeeming qualities in him- who knew?

I was helping someone with their Favorites at work and I found the "As The Board Turns" thread. Too funny! There were names in there I TOTALLY forgot!!!

I'm here, dog!

I'm hung over from tending to a sick little girl most of the weekend. Soooooooooooo needy, she wouldn't let me leave her side for more than 5 minutes.

We did manage to get our sledding in before the onslaught of gross bodily functions, however. I even slogged my way up a few times and didn't bust my butt on the way down!

And both girls made it down the bunny hill on a snowboard. I was very proud.

She took a few of the old ladies with her to troll elsewhere but a lot of those people were never heard from again. They went the way of "Feel The Heat", I guess. I suppose there was a 'real' "Garth" for example because why would anyone make him up?
And there was Nova and Misplaced Texan. I believe they were real.

Not the kind of hang over that you get from too much fun, huh? Ugh! I hope she is getting better!!!

She's with the in-laws and has begun eating again, so I'm thinking the worst is over.

Just did a 15 minute ab workout and I realize: I am grossly out of shape.:/

I hate exercising. It is not fun and I never feel better afterwards.

Well, that's a good thing. Glad you had fun sledding. I had fun shoveling snow all day. Then the plow came by and filled in my freshly shoveled sidewalk again. And that crunchy plow snow is a hell of a lot harder to shovel than the fresh fluffy stuff. Ugh, my back has been sore all day. And will likely still be tomorrow. I'm getting old.

You weigh like 90 pounds, you are NOT out of shape. Seen my abs lately? I know I need to exercise more but the fact is, I'm just too dam lazy.

I did absolutely nothing today. Well, some laundry. But after a super busy weekend, resting today was great.

I had a meeting with the owner. Apparently I do a good job and play nice with others, so I will continue to be employed. I knew sub contracting my job out to China was a good idea!

There was a (last) notice on Angela's Caring Bridge site from her mom. Her mother's partner/boyfriend, Ralph also had cancer and was not expected to make it past Christmas. He died the same week as Angela.

That poor woman.
