Day 1 of the job hunt

Of course the first thing I need to do is figure out where the heck I last put my resume. I need to update it, but it looks like I might need to make a whole new one because I have no idea where it is. I thought I'd saved it on Babushka's computer (I last used it back when I didn't have a comp and never got around to transfering it to mine). But there's no sign of it. Anyone got any tips on making a good resume? I always hated them, can never remember dates when I worked places. Especially now that I've lost where I had them all written down. Guess I could call my old jobs and get the dates, well except the places that went out of buisness. Also it looks like I'll be looking into retail again, I'd love to get out but all my experiance of the last 10 years is in retail managment so what else can I get into where I can make decent money without any experiance?
Hope everyone's doing ok, I'll comment on blogs tonight during wrestling.

Back to bed...

Well, lets see....... I went to work today, became unemplyed at about 11am, came home to an angry letter from one of my Uncles, found out my friends dog is dying, got a call fom the phone company saying if they don't get a check by Tues there shutting our phone off, and realized I forgot to pick up garbage bags.
I'm going back to bed.
Tom. I'll worry about getting a new job and all the rest but I feel today has shot me enough times so it's 4pm and I give up for today.
Hope everyone's doing better.

Ever since I got back from Canada I seem to just be tired. I wake up tired and go to sleep the same way. I stumble through my days half asleep. It's like I just want to close my eyes and sleep the rest of this year away. I'm not depressed (at least I don't think I am) I just feel exahusted all the time. I keep thinking of stuff I should be doing, but feel too worn out to do it. Not a good thing. Maybe I need to find some Jolt cola. Or get some caffein pills. I feel like just a big lump. Ug.

I just finished Stephen Kings mystery paperback the Colorado Kid (about an unsolvable death) and am now starting his new full sized novel the Cell (about a tone in cell phones driving people homicidally insane). I'm so glad he changed his mind about retirement. Especially now I can so use an escape from reality. I also have a new one based on my dear old friend H.P. Lovecraft's work taht is waiting for me when I'm done. It's called the Tsathaoggua Cycle. Try saying that 10 times fast. It's nice to once again have some new stuff to read by my favorites. Sometimes I just get sick of re-reading old stuff. Maybe thats why I collect comics the most. It's a quick read every month, no waiting for half a year for a new book. There's also a new Get Fuzzy book out, and a Garfild one called Odie Unleashed that I need to pick up (still waiting for Garfields 42 book to hit shelves). Worse comes to worse I haven't finished the Dilbert books either, still several of those to pick up, and Clive Cussler should be comming out with a new one soon too. Also hoping for one from Terry Pratchett within he next few months. The more often I can keep my mind away from reality the better off I am.

Hey does anyone out there use the Vonage phone system? I'm looking into it and was wondering if anyone can give me some info. $25 a month seems a little too good to be true and I'm wondering what extra charges they tack on.

Well, so far this year hasn't started off on the best foot. First Mookers Pawpaw passes away, then my Nanie, then Alekx and Burfica's Mom. I was trying to think of something good that happened sine Jan. 1st. Yes, BM has a new bouncing baby boy, but he appeared on Dec. 28th. Since Jan 1st I can't think of anything.
Maybe it's just the state my mind is in right now. After a hectic time in Canada between family fueds and crap maybe I'm just looking down too much. It seemed like all anyone did was fight. I always thought my family got along all right for the most part, with the exception of my oldest sister, but this time she wasn't the only scumbag involved. Yes she did her share of making everyone else feel misserable, but quite a few others were fighting. My poor Mom, who always tries to care about eveyone and who definatly didn't need all this crap, ended up right in the middle. Sometimes I think it'd be worth it to just start shooting some of these morons I'm related to. I'm sure I could bury a few more bodies in the woods behind my house.
But were back now, and I'm going to do my best to get back to being a more regular blogger. I miss being on here more. I still need to look for a job, but the urgancys leaked out of it. There are more important things in life that the crap I've been worrying about.
Hope your all doing great. I'll comment tonight on everyone's blogs.

Another Death and some time away

My Grandmother, Ruby Dodgson age 91, died in her sleep last night. She's been sick for a while but I thought we had at least another year with her here. I will be in Canada for services and other stuff till next Monday. Please take care of yourselves, I'll be back on a more regular basis after this. Peace.

Boring stories of....

"Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
And I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory of,
Well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of
Glory days"

Bruce Springsteen

I was going to post another of my memories series tonight. Figured it would be a quick post, just a little something to fill in since I'm still crazy busy but don't want to abandon this blog. Just as I'm half way through Bruce comes on the radio and listening to the lyrics made me feel old. Sometimes I fear that all my old stories are all I've got left in this life. Things I used to do, people I used to know, places I used to go. That my best is all behind me. So tonight I'm going to get the heck up, shrug off this tiredness, and go see whats going on out there in the world and see if I can find some newer stories to tell. I'll be back here soon, on a more regular basis. I will still post my old memories at some point. But tonight I need to make some new ones. Hope everyones doing great. I miss you all. Peace.

Quick note

Sorry for the prolonged vacation from blogging but I'm looking for a new job which is taking up a lot of my spare time. I'll be back regular as soon as I can.
But I did want to jump on to let everyone know that my dear friend BM and his wife the Hottie have added a new critter to there psychotic home. Thats right another little bundle of joy came poppin out on Dec. 28. Yet another boy in the house, to keep Little C company is Super S. Lets all give the sperm master a warm show of appreciation. Seems he just keeps filling the Hottie with kids. At this rate they'll have a dozen in no time. Add in that the Hottie loves raping BM every chance she gets and I'm starting to think next X-mas I should buy them a box of condoms.
Congrats Bm, Hottie, Little C, and New Super S. Can't think of a better family to watch grow.

To all of you out there, peace.
