Go!

I've decided I need to get a job.

As suchly, tomorrow will I begin the search.

I can't retire just yet and I can't seem to find anyone who will pay me 6 figures to lie about on the couch in my jammies reading all day, so it's back to the workforce I go. I'm underwhelmed by the thought of it all.

Sadly I'm enjoying this being unemployed a bit too much. Doing lunch and hanging about in coffee shops and book stores and fucking like a bunny and shopping at the mall really has a way of filling a guy's day. I can't imagine when I even had the time to work, truth be told. Aye, in fact I'm a tad bit afraid all this stress-free living will ruin me for the work-force. I'm about as unwound as I can get and it's a right good feeling. Damn fine feeling.

My shrink thinks I should go back to school and follow my dreams, whatever those are, but I'm quite certain being off work that long would do severe damage to my bank account as well as my ability to do actual work. Or anything even close to work.

So, the decision has been made. Of course there's a chance, God willing, it may take a few months for me to find something I want, or maybe even longer, so the vacation won't end tomorrow. I think I'm going to have to spend at least 3 - 4 hours a day doing the hunt. At least that's the plan as it stands right now.

Otherwise not much new to report. Oprah has been killer lately, and Dr. Phil has really been on too. I swear if it wasn't for those two shows I wouldn't have a clue about how to live my life. I just give thanks to God for putting them in my life.

We're about a week or so away from Opening Day, which is hard to believe. Why it seems like just yesterday when I had my soul ripped out and destroyed by those heinous smelly illiterate fun loving chowdah slurping criminals. In fact I've got a picture that I took during game 5 sitting at my desk, so I can look at it every day and dream about the time when I'll have my revenge on those scalawags. Oh yes, my little pretties, revenge is a dish best served frozen and don't think I don't know that.

And lastly, the SABP has been in the studio lately, look for a new release sometime soon. Or not. Or maybe. Well, we can hope anyways, I hear tell they've got some demo stuff that they rather like and hope to finish but we all know how those artiste types are, they seem to have trouble with the last 10% which, seems to be much harder than the first 90% for some reason.

I had a grilled ham -n- swiss stemitch for lunch today, along with some groovy home-made Hungarian potatoe salad. That's a big double yummers for sure.

Stop!

I can't seem to find much time to do more than spend a few minutes online every once in a while.

I'm sure I'll need to write more when the actual stress from interviewing enters my life. Just the thought of it gives me the willies. Bah.

Warmest regards,

Hi, welcome to Husi by georgeha (4.00 / 2) #2 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 03:46:33 PM EST
The editors keep a tight ship here, so don't try any  of that stuff that goes on at k5 (like photoshopping people into pornography, or such). Welcome!


Nice to see you Mr. Ha by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 1) #4 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 03:50:37 PM EST
I hope all is well with you and yours.

About the same, as you can gather from my by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 04:51:20 PM EST
previous diaries, though the next one will be a heart pounder, as someone in the Ha household nearly dies from window glass falling from on high, just like in the Omen.

Watch for it.

This season by joh3n (2.00 / 0) #16 Mon Mar 17, 2008 at 03:50:20 AM EST
I can't help but agree.  But then again, I was sure that the Chowdah wasn't gonna reign supreme last season either, so using me as a barometer is hardly wise.

Now I gahta get mah cahr.  I pahked it an dah ahther saihd of da yahd.

Geez Bob by dev trash (4.00 / 2) #6 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 04:18:19 PM EST
Looking for a jorb in the midst of a recession is not one of your more stellar points.

I am sure you will prevail though.

Well by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #14 Mon Mar 17, 2008 at 02:34:57 AM EST
When you're unemployed you have two options:
  1. Look for a job
  2. Stay unemployed.
Not a real hard decision, eh?

And actually it doesn't matter if it's a recession or not, there's always jobs to be had - you just have to get out there and dig em up.

--Your best pal Bob

6 figures to lie about on the couch in my jammies by chuckles (4.00 / 3) #7 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 04:30:48 PM EST
It's called "blogging". It's like trolling, but you collect revenue from the ads running along your posts. See also: John C. Dvorak.

enjoying this being unemployed by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #9 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 05:06:38 PM EST
Oh yeah. Back in 2002/03 I spent a year and a half unemployed. Gave me a real taste for not working, in addition to a mountain of debt and no savings or retirement.

FSM willing, if I hold on to my current job for another year, I'll be completely out of debt.

I'm in pretty good shape as I don't have any debt - no bills except rent and utilities.

You could take advantage of this by theboz (4.00 / 2) #10 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 05:32:33 PM EST
You know, this may be a blessing in disguise.  Rather than looking for another I.T. job, you have another opportunity.  Given the recent turnover in the position, it seems that Barack Obama needs another spiritual advisor on his campaign.  I think you know what to do here.

Unemployed by blixco (2.00 / 0) #11 Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 05:35:22 PM EST
is excellent, if you can like it.  A lot of people can't, due to fear or external responsibility (kids to feed, etc).

Goddamn.  If I could, I'd be totally unemployed, work when I had to, etc.  I did that for a couple of years and it was awesome.

Some of my friends can't believe it when I tell them I'm feeling great and doing okay.

I think what it's done for me most is taught me that I don't have to stay at a job I don't like, I can walk away and be just fine.

Now to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.

Give it the ole college try by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #17 Mon Mar 17, 2008 at 05:54:10 AM EST
there bob.. Gotta be at least a foreclosure specialist job in Cleveburgh for you ?

Maybe you should take in a roommate to cut expenses ? Maybe give the gf a place to live, eh ? Co-habitating at ye olde rehabe centre ? They have a guard at the front desk, ya ? Keep out, say, unwanted or maybe jealous folks ?

Aye by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #18 Mon Mar 17, 2008 at 08:06:56 AM EST
Except I'm no real estate tycoon.

I was thinking about starting my own re-finance company - some sort of a ruse to bilk money out of the people who bought houses they couldn't afford - you know, in a sort of karma pay-back for them bringing the country into recession and taking 10% off my stock portfolio...

i was so looking forward to meeting a true celebrity.
