between a bullet and a target

No, really, I know, it's been a long time and I've borderline abandoned the blog. I've had decent reasons though... I had all hell break loose in both my personal and professional life. I wont speak on the personal part (and no, I didnt fall off the wagon.. to fall off of it, you hafta be on it!), but I ended up getting fired two weeks ago.

Let's chat about that! First of all, I'll say that I start my new job tomorrow, and it pays more. So I'd like to thank the salty pirates at my last job for making that happen. Will I miss working with the chick that got herself knocked up just to keep her garbage man boyfriend around and felt the need to sabotage people to compensate for her own shortcomings? Will I miss working with the mumblefuck tool or the girl who was unfathomably cold, and even combining the two wouldnt create a person worth the air they breathed? Will I miss working with the girl who was mind-numblingly self absorbed, but yet couldnt figure out why she was alone (not to mention scared to try to sell things, which is a big FAIL if youre a salesperson)? Will I miss working for a boss that couldn't be consistent even if she tried, and ran the office with a in such a way that even when staff changed, the atmosphere of resentment and tension remained (there's probably a reason your womb was barren.. it's natures way of saying you would be a horrible parent and you dont deserve children)? I'm thinking I wont miss any of those people.

Also, because of this, I'm now able to hit Fla this week to hang out with my family for xmas. Almost makes me want to send them a loaf of fruitcake for making all of these positive things happen. But yeah, I didnt give up blogging, but I wont pretend I havent considered it. I'll do what I can to catch up on some of the funsies I've been up to, chili cookoffs, beer pong, TMNT party, a Florida trip a couple weeks ago, and finding out that the Dollar Store does sell thongs (no, I didn't buy them, but it induced LOLZ)... Have no worries, the hillarity and good times have still ensued, and they will be put on here eventually.

I have two dollars in my wallet.

That's two, count 'em, TWO thongs!!

I'm guessing that the thongs in the Dollar Store have NASCAR pictures on them.

win-win.

I missed your anti-co-worker tirades. It's good that you'll have a fresh batch of goobers to assault.

Shit might happen but you know what?

You still have a great rack and that's all good.

Check out my new blog if you get the chance, why dontcha. I know, I'm such a self promoting whore.

Sounds to me like you being fired handed you an opportunity.

Because of course if you hadn't been fired you wouldn't have been in the dollar store-scoping out the panties for your next interview. On the wagon or off...don't retire the blog-you're the only one of us still out amoung the people...aka muse

...send them a loaf of fruitcake...

Got plenty if you need some. Just about all I got for Christmas. Good luck on the new job.

Have to admit, I've missed your drunken madness. . . and those legs!
Enjoy FL, I am, although today is looking cloudy.
