So, while everyone is, uh, hmmm, "blogging" this summer...
Oh, what an adventure we're having this summer. You can see in the picture above how close I got to boardibg the train before I decided to just lay my inebriate bones down and enjoy the view from a bench. If I wasn't so hammered, who knows where I would have gone or if I'd ever return. Besides, I'd have missed being rolled and set afire by friendly local thugs (those compassionate urchins concerned I might catch my death from the chill summer night).
I may have been on my way to a job interview before stopping for a little relief (in oh, so many ways) but I'm not certain. Everything's so fuzzy. God knows I needed a drink. This entire application and interview process has been as demoralizing as it has been depressing. If I haven't been deemed qualified enough for a position, the determination is that I'm over-qualified; if they've haven't already filled the position, they're waiting to convene a committee to commiserate and consider and consume a platter of cheese squares and melon slices. The waiting and rejection and uncertainty is as painful as mastering a B-major on a steel string.
Another cup of coffee, some surfing for jobs and news and scribble in my political blog (thing's a-heatin' up with the 06' election), a walk in the woods; listen to the oh-so-yummy AKA Monty's generosity (2 hot mixes) while I shower. Time to get the kids again. As you see, not everything sucks.
