Sting Is Dead To Me

I never really thought I would say such a thing because a) I like his music and b) he seems like a genuinely nice and socially conscious individual. But it can't be coincidence that on Saturday, when my alarm went off, interrupting a dream in which I was on a date with my #1 Comedic TV Boyfriend Jim Halpert, it was a Sting song. A Sting song was also on the radio last Monday when my alarm went off, interrupting a dream in which I was flying with my #1 Dramatic TV Boyfriend Dean Winchester. Coincidence? I think not. Therefore, Sting is Dead To Me. As is whatever station my radio was set on those mornings. Because I have enough bad news these days, I could use a few more TV Boyfriend populated dreams.

I did hear back from the firm I interviewed with and while I didn't get the position, they did say they were impressed with my interview and that they would keep my resume on file if anything else came up. Which could be what they tell everyone, but it did make me feel pretty zen about the whole situation. In fact I'm pretty zen about my life right now. It could be that a continued lack of sleep has robbed me of my senses (Insomnia is mean, people!) or a preternatural apathy about work in the first place, but I'm not nearly a stressed as I thought I would be. In fact it has been kind of nice to have time to read book for hours or do research for my planned novel or just walk around downtown and people watch. I guess I was far more miserable at my old job than I thought.

So even though I am actually enjoying the free time that goes with being unemployed, I must get back to the thirty job ads I emailed myself last night. Or maybe I'll have words with my alarm clock. It can't be interrupting my best dreams like that.

:) . . . just don't set the alarm clock when you know you have a night like that to look forward to. Sorry about the job.

My stupid cable carrier doesn't even have the CW channel yet so I can't even watch Dean Winchester!!! Ugh! So frustrating since after I watch the Office, I want to watch Supernatural, but no, the cable company is still in negotiations to get the channel!! Lame!
Also, sorry about the job. But I'll keep my fingers crossed that you find a job you like. At Doubleday, with Elaine...

I will not work for Mr. Pitt though, CherBear. Sorry to hear about the lack of cable. But I am taping the eps, so I could pass along a tape once it is filled if you like. You would probably get it just in time for the mid-season hiatus. Good?
