The roomie went to his new gig in another city a night early and literally ALL of our friends were out of town all weekend and I think I'm going stir crazy from spending so much time wit myself.
Just caught the new gig thing............same company, new position?
Sorry about the sitr crazy-ness

I hate it when athletes retire, make a big deal out of it, then unretire, then retire again, then unretire . . . annoying.

I found out this afternoon that one of the seniors who comes to the center everyday had died. Actually, he had been found dead in his apartment today by some friends who had been trying to get in touch with him. They found him in his lounge chair.

I feel awful - he was just at the center yesterday morning. He had heart problems and was way overweight, but he wasn't that old (he was in his seventies).

This sucks

Same company, TWO positions! He is now the manager of a smaller station, and a manager in Indy. He chose schmoozing with the airport manager of the new place in a suite at their AA baseball team's stadium over me, can you believe it?

...and the thunder is starting. I think we're under a tornado warning. Not cool.

I no its too late but, im thinking of applying for uni this year. Im told there is still some time left but it could be very hit or miss.
My plan was to take a year out working but it looks like nothing might come up so i might just bite the bullet and go uni this year.

What do you all think.

I did not take a year off, as I would have liked, so I ended up dropping out of college twice. I did graduate but got a worthless degree that I'm still trying to pay off the loans for. I ended up going back for what I really wanted to do last year. So I say if you don't know what you really want to do with your life, take the time off to think about it. But just make sure you make a committment to yourself that it will only be a year. I've seen too many people decide to take that year off and then they never end up going at all. School is important but it's an expensive committment so don't rush it unless you have some sort of major in mind.

^ Cheers for the advice. I know a lot of people too who have dropped out without even doing a year and have loads of loans to repay.

Kelly, that is so sad! We can only hope that he went in his sleep (like we all hope!), with no pain. It makes me sad to think that he might have been in pain, all alone. Waaaaaaaaaaa!

Day 8 done, finished, finito!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Just in the nick of time too. Migraine last night that carried over into today. Got home from work last night and the ice bag hit the head and I was out.

Instant credit crap at work making for some really low morale. I begrudgingly have to give my new boss a bit of respect for his views on a way to get them...........he doesn't believe in bribery..................unlike a certain cosmetics dept. in the store. they can do it but no one else can Needless to say, it is causing a lot of hard feelings in the store..........we are quite divided.

Yeah, I saw a guy with a similar build outside of the center and I had to do a double take because at first I thought, "Oh, there he is."

We are officially on a hiring freeze at work now. And we may get "bonuses" instead of raises - which is fine for now, but since raises are based on percentages, we'll get screwed in a couple of years.

Sorry about your migraine

I just watched Wife Swap because one family was from Rhode Island. I think I killed about 100 brain cells. But I'm pretty sure they live in TheBucket- I mean, Pawtucket.

I think of you everytime I watch The Family Guy. Not that there is any resemblence between you and the characters, it is set in Rhode Island.

I have just spent the better part of the knight, er I mean night, watching trailers of The Dark Knight . That looks freakin' A-MAZ-ING!!!!!!!!
