Well I hope this day hasn't foreshadowed the rest of my unemployment.
I was highly UNsuccessful today.
As opposed to INsuccessful.
Which means you're REALLY successful.
Today I slept in and had no sense of urgency to get anything done.
I didn't do pilates or yoga.
I didn't take Dog for a walk.
I watched about 5 minutes of Superbad.
As ridiculous as this movie is I REALLY think it says alot about homosocial relationships among males and I would even go all the way to say this movie brought about the Bromance revolution.
Which is going on the same time as the recession.
Is this a coincidence?
Someone who studies probablility could probably answer better than me.
But I'm going to guess there is some type of correlation.
M, dear soul that she is, offered to buy me lunch today.
Which makes it my second recession meal.
And by recession meal, I mean free.
I've yet to have a recession drink, or a recession smoke, so feel free to be the first!
We went to Amaranth, which I think will be a great little place to review for my portfolio, which will begin after this week is over.
I have to say with the St. Patrick's Day season upon us, I really couldn't have picked a better time to be laid off.
I didn't even pick it.
The gods must really be in need of my liver.
So M and I and her son went and discussed, not my unemployment, (which was great!) but the state of MPS and whether or not she should put her son in MPS.
I, crazy, kidless liberal that I am, am against the voucher system and pro-PRO public schools.
M, also a crazy liberal but WITH a kid (hey I have a dog!) agrees in theory, but doesn't want to dick around with her son.
And I don't blame her.
It was a super awesome, super serious lunch.
I love M and am super glad that she is my friend.
She gives me hope that marrieds and moms can have lives outside of marriage and kids.
And I'm not just saying that because she is one of the two readers of this blog.
After a delicious meal of black bean & sweet potato soup and liberal politics, I came home to find E. watching a ridiculously bad movie called "The Flock."
I decided this was unacceptable as Day 1 was so productive, I couldn't let Day 2 slip away by the wayside.
So we decided to bake.
E made blondie caramel brownies, which are currently cooling on the oven.
I made a deliciously different apple-cheese soup, which I already have ideas on how to make better.
And in fine family tradition, we started drinking when we started baking/cooking.
Oh, Grandma Dorothy.
You are a wise one.
I'm finding it oddly interesting at how creative I am now that I don't have corporate america breathing down my neck. Not that I ever felt confined, persay, by my job.
But I couldn't use my slang when coming up with ways to describe pants.
Although I truly think the world is missing out on the word totes.
I'm just saying.
I also have to give the most ridiculous properss to P for sending the most motivating email of all time.
You are Matt Foley.
But way thinner.
And I love you with the love of a thousand puppy parties and j's skateboard.
Which is the cutest thing of all time.
