When nothing happens to a Temp...

I gotta be honest with you guys, I've got nothing today. I haven't had work in months. My meals are either oatmeal, nachos or canned tuna. My most extravagant expense is a bottle of vodka that I'm emptying faster than I'd like. I have piles of dirty laundry building up in my living room because I'm too lazy to throw them into my laundry basket. The only thing I have to look forward to is unemployment checks and college football. And the days for both of those are numbered. I had a dream last night I had a Temp gig. Nothing exciting happened. I just had work. This comes just days after another dream I had where I was cleaning the bathroom. It's gotten so bad that I've been watching Gossip Girl because Ed Westwick's shameless efforts to act like a young Marlon Brando make me laugh. I don't shower until after the noon news. I clean my dog's ears because they need it. I think about going to the gym, but I don't. I have a packet of mayonnaise that's been sitting on my kitchen table for a month. This is particularly crazy because I hate mayonnaise. I considered watching Leno last night. Yes. It's gotten that bad.

Luckily, there are always clips of Mystery Science Theater 3000 to fill the time between when Dog X wakes me up and mental fatigue kicks in.

I always enjoyed Joel more on MST3K. Hope things pick up for you. What happened to your other Facebook page? It was much easier to keep up with you then. I've moved back East after never getting a job out there, but I will always appreciate the weekly joblists that would tease me.
