a woman in trouble February 25, 2007

i’ve been awake for 8 hours all weekend. i’ve been sick. i hoped it wouldn’t happen. the government has something to do with this, i just know it. everyone at my job has been out sick and everyone at aaron’s job has been out sick. i went out this morning for kolaches and everyone had the same red nose as me. everyone’s combating this plague. i’ve been fighting a cough for about a week, but didn’t think much of it. power of positive thinking and all that. then, on friday, i left early to go see barak obama speak at auditorium shores. i will upload photos of this event later (quick highlight: aaron neville’s brother and sister sing “i don’t think you’re ready for obama, i don’t think you’re ready for obama, i don’t think you’re ready for this; obama’s too suavalicious for ya, babe” – i’m not lying; my friend cici was the interpreter for the speech and i was so proud of her, up there in front of 20, 000 people speaking to the deaf! cici rules!; it rained and i think this is what finally did me in).

so, i’ve been inside for about 48 hours now. just watched david lynch on klru/pbs’ texas monthly. i like his weird hand tick. according to louisa, he has a daily l.a. weather diary, i don’t know where this is. i did, however, find his new movie inland empire‘s italian trailer.

nothing to do but homework, eat chicken noodle soup, forego the parties and watch the oscar’s at home.

 

thanks for the rejection February 23, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — slova @ 8:14 am

a letter my friend received:

Dear Mr. Chacona,

Thank you for your letter rejecting my application for employment with your
firm.

I have received rejections from an unusually large number of well qualified
organizations. With such a varied and promising spectrum of rejections from
which to select, it is impossible for me to consider them all. After careful
deliberation, then, and because a number of firms have found me more
unsuitable, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your
rejection.

Despite your company’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in
rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my
requirements at this time. As a result, I will be starting employment with
your firm on the first of the month.

Circumstances change and one can never know when new demands for rejection
arise. Accordingly, I will keep your letter on file in case my requirements
for rejection change.

Please do not regard this letter as a criticism of your qualifications in
attempting to refuse me employment. I wish you the best of luck in rejecting
future candidates.

Sincerely,

Nicholas H**k

i just found out that my old friend is engaged.

i feel sick.

and i feel weird for feeling sick about it. emotionally and physically sick even though we’ve been out of touch for a long time. the forefront of my brain says i’m not jealous, but these signs tell me my frontal ain’t working properly. but jealous of WHAT? i wouldn’t want to marry him, and i am more than ok with not being married. so it’s not that, that’s icky.

maybe it isn’t jealousy. maybe it’s the finality of things that makes me feel awful.

i tried not to be snarky when i found out, but my response was simply, “mazel tov! when? how exciting and settled.”

i actually said settled. what is my problem? i am so rude. but i’m annoyed!

why do people have to grow up? and change? why am i so horrid about keeping in touch with people?

i am in a bad mood right now.

 

ok, i know…
