I have officially joined the ranks of the unemployed. Partially out of choice, I had to choose between being laid off today or being on two weeks probation with a possible firing if I fucked up even once. So which looks better on an app, fired or laid off? It's for the better; I've been excessively burnt out on work lately and feel I need to take some time off to get my head back together. I'll coast for a little while on unemployment and foodstamps (if I can get 'em), maybe sign up for bartending classes, and try not to worry about money. Maybe I'll find some supplemental under-the-table work. Or...maybe I'll just cave and go work for Ozone UK if they can use me right now. Either way this may be a blessing. Maybe I'll eventually score a job with *gasp* insurance.

POW tonight at the Ash Street Saloon. Yay! I'm so glad they have a new venue after Satyricon closed.

Radio show tomorrow @ 5pm there or be square...

i think i'm just going to enjoy a little breaky-poo.

Breaky-poo is good to a point...but from someone that's been out on the market too long, it's never to early to start looking.

well mine are not fighting it either.... but to get "approved" and for them to send you a check takes like 3 weeks. Bleh it sucks, a lot.
