So I guess this is it. My last day at work. I think we're all taking off at noon. I mean, what are they going to do, fire us? I'm looking for work, but it seems like everybody else is too. It's hard to even find a place that's actively hiring. Most will just take an application and file it away. I don't even have a roommate to help pay for some of the expenses.

I kinda want to go curl up with the tub of ice cream in the freezer and watch a good movie, but then I wouldn't have any later when I needed some. I suppose I should go pack up my stuff and say goodbye. That's really all I have left to do.

The Slender Man

I tried not to mention him. I wanted to keep you all out of this. And now James saw him too. I know he did. He's stalked too. This is terrible news.

Let me back up. We were watching Princess Bride and James' arm fell asleep, so we paused the movie and he took advantage of it to run to the bathroom. I started making more popcorn (we'd lost a lot of it trying to throw it in each other's mouth) and Squinkey walked in. Why he bought a cat I'll never know but she's the cutest darn thing. And she's great to curl up with on the couch, just like her owner. But turning on the popcorn machine scared her out of the kitchen and then she froze in the living room. Just stood there and started hissing towards the window.

And that's when I looked at what she was doing. And he was in the window. So I ran to close the blinds and get the cat. James came out of the bathroom before I could finish. He saw him and I can't decide if he wanted to murder someone or pass out. Probably both.

So here we are. Now I'm just totally screwed. I don't know how to bring it up to him, but I know I need to. I guess I'll go see him tomorrow. Best to get this out of the way as soon as possible.

Pink Slips

I wish I was talking shoes. I could use a pair of them right now. Actually, I was going to buy some. They were on sale when we had our spa day. Now I guess I'm glad they didn't have my size. Most of my department got the axe. We're being replaced with a few computers and the nerds who sit at them. I don't even know what to do. James is on his way over. I think he's bringing pizza or something. I work till the end of the week. Or until I find a new job. Whichever comes first.

I think there was something in the church bulletin this week about the school needing kitchen help. I should check into that. I can do cooking. Maybe.

Comfortable Couch

I can't decide if James' couch felt good because it's good, or because he was there. Honestly? I think because he was there. He's a great cook too. I don't know what he did to that chicken, but it must have lived a cushy life to have been that excellent. But I brought over Casablanca in all it's 1942 glory. Either he's a great actor, or he liked it. Or he put up with it for me. I hope he actually liked it.

I've got to get to bed though, early morning meeting. Thanks, random readers!

Also, sorry I don't post much about life other than James and work. Blogging is growing on me though.

Spa Day

Some friends and I are taking the day off. Not because we're hungover or anything, but because we decided we needed a day to ourselves. That, to us, means a few hours at the spa before some shopping therapy. Minneapolis, look out!

PS, sorry it's a short post, but I'm still getting the hang of this and don't have much to say!

I forgot I had this blog thingy

James was so sweet at the theater. We went to the movie, some romantic comedy I barely paid attention to, and we talked through the whole thing. We had the whole theater to ourselves and as it turns out, his shoulder is the ultimate pillow in a theater. We just sat and sorta kinda watched the movie, making funny comments about the whole thing. We'd skipped popcorn, figuring it wasn't worth the price, but oh man did I regret it when the movie was done. So what did we do? The same thing any self respecting twenty somethings would do! We went to Perkins.  Mammoth muffins at 3 AM are the best, by the way.

I'm still not sure if anyone's reading this (I'm guessing not, but I don't feel like trying to figure out the statistics) and really I don't care if they are or not. I like writing all this down. Oh, if you are reading this, I'm sorry, thanks for listening to me ramble. And don't be afraid to comment! I don't bite. Much.

I should probably go now. I've got another half hour before I'm done with my presentation for work tomorrow. Oh, and I love my job. Not just because I work with awesome people, but because I feel like I'm doing some good and we make our own hours. As long as the work gets done and we show up for the occasional meeting, it's crazy informal. I'm usually only there a few hours a day because that's all the longer it takes. Then I route the calls to my cell when I'm not there (voicemail kicks in automatically at 6 so I don't have to deal with that crap). When I am there, it's not like I have to dress up or anything. I usually do, just not too fancy. But when I need to, I can show up in sweat pants and a t-shirt with no consequences. I know, dream job, right? But don't get me wrong, if I do need to show up every day for at least a little while and I need to be serious and get work done or I don't get my salary. But as long as there's no problems that arrise from the informality, my boss is a good friend.

Second Date

Movie date tonight! I'm really not used to this blogging thing. If I want to even try to make it work, I'll have to post more often. Anyway, we're headed to a midnight show tonight. Never been to one of these, should be fun. Ah! James is here! And I see roses! Goodbye to whoever might be reading this, movie time!

Testing the Waters

So I had a date tonight that's really into this whole blogging thing. I don't know what he gets out of it, but I guess I'll give it a whirl. Maybe some of James' enjoyment of it will rub off on me.

But moving on. My date, James, took me to Olive Garden. He was smart and funny, and tried a little too hard. It's cute. We're thinking about a midnight showing of a movie next thursday. Would you believe he's never been to a movie that late? It should be fun!
