List-er-ino Fridays: I'm UNEMPLOYED! (...until Monday...)

As regular readers may know, I'm in the process of switching jobs... actually, happily going back to what I do best... desktop I.T. and helpdesk support.

...but that don't start until Monday...

...and yesterday was my last day at the mortgage company...



Space! The Final Frontier!
Space! The Final Frontier!

#5: Read the entire archives of Perez Hilton's blog.

Egads! Perez!

Not a knock on Perez, but to go over reams and reams of reports about Kirsten Dunst, The Beckhams, Ryan Seacrest, Snoop Dog, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and of course, Britney Spears to name but a few is just NOT that appealing.

...but I'd be lying if I said I didn't visit occasionally... BUT HONEST, I stay away from the archives!

Space! The Final Frontier!
Space! The Final Frontier!

#4: Hack the Pentagon's computer again looking for the secret UFO reports... again...

Saucer Stuff

WAIT, I mean, I'd NEVER do such a thing! NEVER! That would be WRONG!

...what are those black helicopters doing over our home?

Space! The Final Frontier!
Space! The Final Frontier!

#3: Re-write War and Peace in long hand.

Big Book

I would, but one of my favourite rudos has already done it ever so eloquently... and even translated it!

Space! The Final Frontier!
Space! The Final Frontier!

#2: Try to find, download via Torrent, catalogue, and then watch all the available episodes of Manimal.


*Sigh*... if only torrents just weren't so slow!

Space! The Final Frontier!
Space! The Final Frontier!

...and the NUMBER ONE THING I'm NOT likely to do while unemployed today...

#1: Re-do my entire wardrobe with the help of Randy Constan - aka Peter Pan.

Although it would amuse Sue to no end as well as giving plenty of blog-fodder for folks like Mr. Fab (OOPS! I mentioned him again! That's it, my hits today are going to SUCK!) I just can't see myself wanting to be the pixy I know I always could be...


The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.


Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our tiny banner site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff!
(...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...

Unemployment--even for jsut one day--is a scary thing, Matthew. I save money religiously due to two past brushes with unemployment. Scary stuff!

It's great to be doing something you're good at for work. I'm glad you're able to return to IT!

Hey Utenzi... I was unemployed for almost two years just prior to starting this blog... and it was VERY rough... but this time, it's tongue-in-cheek... I start Monday, gave my old company two-weeks notice, and purposely took today off for a three day weekend... so not too scary. :)

Too true, MsDemmie... and the weather here is GORGEOUS sunny and VERY warm (21 degrees centigrade) and... And... AND... just for a change, I'm sick.

Yup, coughing my chest out with bronchitis... a "gift" from a chap at work before leaving the company.


Oh well, dose myself on Benylin and try to at least have SOME fun during this weekend!!!

Manimal died for our sins.

Hey Matt... Isn't the cancellation on Manimal what prompted the formation of PETA?
