Because I am Nothing if Not Ambitious

As luck would have it my sister arrived on Sunday night and what would you know I had to start work on Tuesday!

Story of my life.

But we managed to cram in some good times when I wasn’t at work. Relaxing on a family friend’s boat on the lake, sipping wine and eating tapas at Press, chowing down on sushi at Nikko, thrift store hunting, American Idol madness, and an eventful Thursday night in uptown involving a champagne filled hookah, lots of booze and late night Jack in the Box.

It was a good (albeit stressful) week.

And I think it goes without saying that my new job (which requires me to work from 3-1130) has left me deprived of things I once took for granted in my slothful days of unemployment.

Among them are…

1. 40s, spicy peanuts and Jeopardy with the Boo

2. A never ending onslaught of mind-numbing reality television

3. Happy hour

4. Cuddle time with the Boo

5. Cooking dinner

6. General debauchery

7. And of course this blog and all my lovely blog friends

I’m sure I’ll get used to it. Yes, the hours aren’t terrific. The drive is a bit taxing. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers yo!

I figure I’ll just grind these first few months out till they have no choice but to promote me to a new tax bracket at which point I’ll promptly request normal people hours, an office with a view, and a revolving door of minions to fawn over me, tell me how glorious I am, and basically do all the real work.

Sounds doable.

Having a job with real hours is totally killing my summer. Boo to work!

I hope you like the new job! Those hours are hard to deal with.

On one hand, I am wanting to find a job; but on the other hand, I like being able to do whatever whenever.

Hope you are able to settle into a routine soon!

Hope the hours aren't too hard on you, some time and I think you'll be right as rain(why did I just use that expression?)
I need a job this summer,but because my parent found it prudent to keep me from working because 'school comes first' no one will hire me. No school until late August and no money. Blast!
But hey freedom is free...right?
