Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!!

Yee haw!  I got the job, or I won the audition.   Ok, now you KNOW the economy is bad when I'm excited about a PT job slinging brewskies and spirits at a local watering hole.  But, right now?  I'll take what I can get LITERALLY.  I mean, the job market is horrible here and there was an article in our local paper that yet another company will probably be laying off 300 people in the next month if they don't extend some contract or get another client or something.  Either way?  That's 300 MORE people that I have to compete against for any job out there.  Also?  The more people there are out of work?  The more power the employers get - and can hire for much, much less than they would have a year ago.  And while I'd work for less, I don't see my mortgage payment going down or my gas/electric/water bills shrinking either.

But, today I'm not going to dwell on the negative.  I got a job!  So yea for me and yea for my pocket book!! 
And?  This is what, my 3rd post in less than 2 weeks?  WAY TO GO SHOPGIRL!! :~)

But, it's going to be short one again - because I have to get ready for work - I actually start today!!

C-ya later and.....
don't forget to tip your bartenders!!

Exercise Two: Try to write SOMETHING... anything...



OK, I did it - now can I go back to bed?  I'm kidding (sort of) - I'm out of bed, and will stay out of bed until it's reasonably acceptable to go back to bed.  My PJ's?  Yes, I'm still in them (I know it's12:30pm) but I don't care.  Actually, I'm getting out of these pretty soon too - I have an "audition" today at 2pm - so I need to go make myself all purdy-like.

My "audition?" is not for anything remotely exciting (for anyone who's reading this) it's more of a "working interview" at a bar in my neighborhood that has an opening for a bar-bitch tender.  So, I have to get myself moving so I can do down and serve the locals their brewskies and 7 & 7's for a couple of hours.  I better get paid for this audition (at least the tip money..) 

My friend was at the bar last night while another contender was there, and apparently she had no skillz - which of course made me very happy.  He also sounded a little drunk (you did) but I'll take whatever positive feedback I can get these days. 

Well, as Bugs Bunny used to say... "That's all Folks!" - I'm going to say that too - since I need to get ready for this audition/interview.  Wish me luck - and hopefully everyone will just order beer or really easy drinks like Rum and Coke.
