movies, teevee, and the start of another new me

This is the end. No. Not of refusing to blog -- though things might slow down over here a little bit in the days to come. Here, have a kleenex. I know you were getting all watery eyed there cuz you love me so much. It's the last day of the last weekend of the last 10 months of going from employed to unemployed to just plain jobless after draining my unemployment account thus falling off the headcount entirely to heading back to the ratrace of the employed world. I can't wait!

Tuesday is my first day back to work after my excrutiatingly long hiatus and I'm returning to none other than the same corporate computer giant (which will from this day forward be referred to as "The Winnebago") I left 10 months ago. I'm sure there will be assorted pleas for my sanity, bitching about stoopidity, and maybe a few sighs of relief to keep you entertained during round two.

Last week was insane with trying to get a ton of shit done before the big day. How is it that I could be not working for 10 months and still not be caught up with everything around here? But this weekend's been about just hanging out, enjoying the simple things in life, and relishing in the fact that I'll now be able to pay my bills without looking over my shoulder to see if someone's coming after me.

And because I'm crazy and like to pack my schedule fuller than it should be, I've taken on another new venture and joined the gang at Snackie Teevee. I figure since I'm already watching enough teevee to choke a goat (but I have a coopin for the goat!) I'd might as well dish about what I'm watching. The fun part is I'm in the company of some other great blog writers and don't feel the pressure of holding down the fort all by my little self. Not that I consider myself a great blog writer or anything. Especially when comparing myself to them. Anyway, go check it out.

We're also gearing up for pirates around here! In case you don't already know, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opens on Friday, May 25th. So last night we watched The Curse of the Black Pearl, and next weekend will be Dead Man's Chest. Both rewatches for me, but first watches for the kiddo. Enjoy the trailer, but keep your drool to a minimum as I can't afford to be replacing keyboards or anything.

AHA! So it's YOU who has been watching Pirates! :) Not a bad idea though. Might have to do that, should I ever get my final papers done.

Congrats on the job, and good luck! (Oh, and I joined Snackieteevee too :) much fun will be had!)

Yeah, looking forward to Pirates 3, too. My friends wrote all three of them and I get to hear and the behind-the-scenes stories. Fun stuff.

i was unemployed for almost two months and was so stressed out during the job hunt process, i had no time to do anything until the moment i accepted an offer. it sucked! but working and getting a paycheck does have it's bonuses.

welcome back to the grind!

I am so happy that you get to start work again! It usually takes me a month at a new contract to figure out how much web fun-time I have ;).

Thanks for joining the ranks at SnackieTeevee even if you are busy!

I really don't get those movies.
I watched half of one once, and that was more than enough.

Congrats on the job! Both of them. I'm looking forward to Pirates 3, too. Not that I've been to an actual movie theatre in ages.

Good Luck tomorrow...I'll be thinking about you!

Lisa, go out there on your new job and knock 'em dead! Well, not literaly, of course. Then you'd end up in jail and I wouldn't be able to read your blog, unless they still let you blog in jail. But it probabaly wouldn't be broadband access.
