A Crazy World

I just spent the morning watching old episodes of To Catch a Predator while cleaning the house. I must say these guys are a disgrace. I love how they all know it is wrong... and some even say so while chatting online. Yet they still manage to keep at it. That is definate proof of idiocracy at it's finest.

There are soo many people out there... old, young, gay, straight... that just can't separate right from wrong. Many of these men have kids. And kids that are teenagers. I wish they would just stop and think for one second, 'I am taking to someone's daughter... maybe my daughter's friend.' Would they really want their daughter meeting up with some online stranger, alone, in his house?

So wrong... so, soo wrong.

Texas Hold 'Em

Placed 4th last night in the Tuesday game. Now after a 2nd and a 7th, I am definitely in the final tournament. Only a few more weeks to go and then Atlantic City is on my vacation list...

I am constantly dreaming that I am trying to get away from someone, am stuck somewhere, or am trying to tell someone something that they just aren't getting. I am beginning to wonder if the universe is trying to tell me something...

Perusing the Employment Ads

While scrolling through the employments of the local CraigsList, I stumbled upon a listing for a Full Time Invitation Designer. The listing boasts:

stationery. Our store is built around the importance of celebrating family,
friends, and the occasions that bring us together. At Blue Tulip, we offer
an exciting, rewarding, bright workplace and seek the best talent to join

The list of skill sets one must posess to aquire the position of Invitation
Designer are that of a seasoned professional of design.

  • Knowledge of MAC and PC platforms

  • Expertise in Photoshop and Illustrator

  • Strong design and typography skills

The list goes on and on. Sounds perfect! I am an excellent candidate for this position, as I, by some miricle happen to meet all of these requirements.

Hmmm... salary? Searching... searching... searching... ah ha. WTF?!?!? $10-$12 per hour!?!

I couldn't support a flea on that income. Another one bites the dust...

Hours Worked, Wages Lost

After working in the corporate world for the past 10 years I have come to realize that every boss/owner is in it for themself, and themself only.

I'm all, "Hey... you screwed up my paycheck!" Mr. Bossman is all, "Ummm, yeah. We'll touch base on that in a few weeks. Mmmmmkay?"
