Vertimyst haz a job (Take 1)
Ahh... job hunting.   The endless search of up and down, high and low, left and right, applying everywhere, grasping at air and random odd jobs to hopelessly try and scrape some cash into your pocket.

I recently started that hunt.   Or rather, started it up again.   Back in January, I applied at an inn, and at McDonalds.   Fruitlessly.   Meh, January's not the best time to try and get a job. :P

So today I had an all-day puppet practice from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, which technically was from 6:30 (when I got up) to 4:00 (when we finally left the church).

When I got home I found out that I got a call from some people that were looking for someone to stack wood for them (I had seen their ad and called about it) - so tomorrow I'm going over for 8:00.   Bleh, this is Summer, I should be sleeping in instead of getting up early... :P

I've also gotten rid of 3 out of 7 copies of my resume, one to the local general store, one to a video rental store, and the last to one of the local grocery stores (the only place that's actually hiring, AFAIK), and which I dropped off today, and filled out an application form.

So yes - I have a job.   That job being Professional Job Seeker. :P

In other news, I'm shocked to find out that today Michael Jackson has died of a heart attack/coma, at the age of 50.   He's leaving behind a great legacy that, like so many other artists, started out epic and dwindled from there.   Unfortunately, not only did he leave behind such classics as Thriller, but he left behind several controversies.   I sha'nt mention them here, but unless you've been living under a rock for the past 10-20 years (give or take a few), you should know what I mean.

At the same time as being shocked, I'm also only slightly surprised - considering what he's done to his body, if I were him, I'd probably die too.   And apparently he had been in ill health for a while as well.   *sigh*... the entertainment industry doesn't seem to be the healthiest business these days.

lol "if I were him, I'd probably die too" that made me laugh :D
Have fun with the job hunting!

I'm semi-glad MJ died, lol...

Speaking of jobs, check out Rooney's Feed and Seed - apparently they may be looking for hired hands. They might even hire your legs, if you ask them politely enough.
