I Should Have a Really Great

post here for y'all, about the weekend, which was amazing, about old friends and new friends and Asheville and all kind of lovely funny wonderful stuff BUT.

I have a cold. This is blazingly unfair, since I already had a cold this fall and that makes this cold number two (or cold shit, as we like to call it) and that is clearly one too many colds for 2005. In 2004 I only had one (1) cold. It was a doozy, whereas this one is mostly just general malaise, aching, sniffling and etc., but still. I am not exposed to schoolchildren every day anymore and thus should be basically healthy all the time. So I'm mad and also, I'm considering getting the flu shot, since my immune system seems to be a bit down. And I can't think or do anything except sort of stumble around grousing, drinking tea.

Blogging, you know, is not heavy manual labor and you'd think I'd be able to churn out a post on my weekend but I can't. My brain is too thick and heavy and I can't even play video games. Last night I read an Anne Rice book; that's the kind of terrible shape my brain is in right now. I think I'm going to go back to bed with Carl Hiaasen.

However, I do need to make a couple kind of major requests to the universe. Okay, universe, listen up. My unemployment will be OVER, as in GONE, as in NO MORE INCOME, in 2 weeks. Yes, the frickin' week of Thanksgiving and the official start of the shopping season will find Hangover Central with no credit cards and no cash and this ain't good. I need a job, universe, I need a source of income, please please deliver. While we're at it, I need a boyfriend (although not as much as money, such is the state of our sad sad capitalist existence) and if you could drop one of those off as well I'd appreciate it.

In all seriousness, if you who are reading this blog right now have any leads on jobs and/or freelance work or distance stuff, I am fast and accurate on a keyboard and I don't mind putting data into Excel spreadsheets for hours at a time and I'm one hell of an editor. So please keep me in mind - I really need some money. Thanks.

at the moment we're looking for machinists, but no openings for clerical/admin stuff... i'll keep my ears open.

Thanks y'all! It's good to know that you're out there; things are getting a little scary at this point.
