BBBlogging on the go.....

llets just say my smart phone ain't sso smart... or maybe it's the user. I'm cruising down I-75 on my way to Alabama- no worries my friends, hubbies driving. It's 2 days til tgiving and my hand is cramping up from this teeny tiny keyboard.

lets just say im (notice im forgoing punctuatuon) amazed at technology, the fact i can post this while hurtling down the freeway at 65 mph safe and sound in our little honda pilot. right now im crossing the ohio river. i know... crazy! hell, i can remember whhen the faxing got big. yes, thats faxing... not fu- uhhh drop ti. so, kudos to you my semi smart phone. even if your owner cant type.

Things to Love when you Hate your Job

1.) American Horror Story - Seriously, the trippiest show on television. And Jessica Lange, wow, she may be overacting, but WOW! If she doesn't get nominated for an Emmy, I'm gonna.... I don't know what, but it will be SERIOUS.

2.) Your dog... I have a Boston Terrier. Who snorts. Who is needy and sometimes smells funky. But what's not to love when you've had a really crappy, tedious, boring day and when all is said and done, you curl up on the couch with your heating pad (because your shoulders are up in your eyeballs all day because you're either staring at an Excel spreadsheet for nine hours or writing process docs for mailing large quantities of s.t.u.f.f.) and you've got a bundle of furry love snuggled at your feet?

3.) Pandora... okay, how old am I? Just discovered Pandora (have been using Rhapsody) and lo and behold (even though I can't get FaceBook) I get it at work. Which means I listen to music I like all. freaking. day. And how weird is it that it just randomly (albeit not so random) picks out stuff I like? I know, crazy, right?

4.) Dexter. Dexter. Dexter. Are you picking up on a theme here? Yes, I may not watch a lot of TV, but when I do, it's creepy and scary. My nice little escape.

5.) Speaking of nice little escapes, number five is my husband. TGIF for my old ball and chain. Proof I do know how to make some good decisions.

And now, it's time for American Horror Story.... hope I can sleep tonite. And b.t.w, who in the heck is creepy black rubber suit man?

An Update from an Employed Person

Being at a job you hate, dread going to every day, and one in which the only thing you have to look forward to is your 9 AM and 3 PM snacks is no fun. Not in the slightest.

Just like marriage I suppose, my advicee to the unemployed (if you're financially making it) is to HOLD OUT for the right one.
