2:30 AM

It's time for another (or maybe it's the first) late night stream of conscious post.

This is coming at you after only one glass of Voignier (a white wine) which means I am sober even if this entire entry is confusing and pointless.

First of all I would like to thank everyone for all the birthday wishes and whatnot. I heart you all for your continued support even though I rarely post these days. Unemployment is such a bitch.

Speaking of the whole lack of job thing, I have some sort of meeting at 10:30am tomorrow but the letter I got in the mail saying I had to go or I would lose unemployment benefits didn't say what the meeting was for or about. Is it sad that my biggest concern is what to wear? I highly doubt the government is going to give me much help in finding a job. I do think I might be getting some idea of what I would like to that works with my skill set. That is the benefit of constantly job hunting as your day job. I'll stop talking about it before I get depressing.

I'm watching a Roseanne marathon on TV Land right now. It's so strange to me how much I like this show. I think it's because the way Roseanne talks (with constant sarcasm) reminds me of my mom. Honestly it reminds me a bit of myself as well. My mother was visiting me last week. I always enjoy when she is here. It's disturbing to say but either I'm rapidly turning into her or we are turning into each other. I think it's the latter.

There is some sort of note chain on Facebook that basically all my friends keep tagging me on. It's the first one I ever wanted to do myself but I decided I would rather put it here. Now hang on while I go look up the exact wording .....

Okay, here we go.

15 Books

Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Copy the instructions into your own note, and be sure to tag the person who tagged you.

1. Of Human Bondage - W. Somerset Maugham
2. 1984 - George Orwell
3. Night - Elie Wiesel
4. Dry - Augusten Burroughs
5. Zorba The Greek - Nikos Kazantzakis
6. Without Feathers - Woody Allen
7. The Stand - Stephen King
8. Rat Pack Confidential - Shawn Levy
9. Where The Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein
10. The Stranger - Albert Camus
11. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
12. The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
13. The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck
14. Foundations of Psychopathology - John C. Nemiah, M.D.
15. Inferno - Dante Alighieri

I tried to be quick and pick a variety of books I know have affected me in some way and I know will always stay with me. At least parts of them. I do have a horrible memory after all. Right now I am reading "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand and I've only just bitten into the first hundred pages of seven hundred and something. I have a feeling it would be on this list if I had already finished it. Anyone want to recommend anything? I love recommendations.


I burned my hand with the iron today. It looks all shiny and cool. I don't think it will leave a scar. Damn. Off to New Jersey this weekend with the girls. I don't really have a group I call "the girls" so nobody in my life should know what that means. Hell, I could be talking about my boobs. But I'm not. A few of us were going to stay in a house by the beach but it won't stop raining so I guess it will be lots of bowling in another state. Whoo hoo. Toss me a beer.

Is it weird that it took 5 hours for this to hit my browser feed?
I'm impressed that you actually iron! My 18yo was roasting Starburst (yes, I know) and when it didn't puff up like he thought it would, he touched it... ta-da! 2nd degree burn.
Beach, bowling -- getting away is the important thing.
Nice list of books! My brain is too tired to add anything of interest, but I like your variety.

Don't wear anything nice to that interview. As a matter of fact, go to wal mart with ten dollars and come out fully clothed.

It'll work in your favour ;)

Oh, make sure you shower ;)

furiousBall said...

"Zorba The Greek" is this the one about the feta eating zombies? oh wait, no... different Z word

Night was one heck of a book.....have a good weekend Knight! BTW, both Ben and I were sorry to not make the party....

Jay said...

Obviously I'm thinking a tight skirt with a slit up the side would perfect for the interview. Of course I think that would be perfect for anything.

I was watching Roseanne on TV Land last night too! In fact, I was watching it at the exact time that you were writing this. *queue Twilight Zone music*

Love the Book Meme. I might do it too.

Reb said...

Hm, think I'll pass on the book meme. I read mostly Sci-fi/fan and there is really not a lot ... damn, I was going to say memorable, but then I remembered a few that were outstanding and then a few more, so maybe I will have to do this.

Put Tea Tree oil on the burn, it works wonders.

I am sure that whatever you wind up doing with your friends will be fun.

Catch.

Micky-T said...

Your post is almost as long as the books that I read....j/k

fiwa said...

That interview is just their "this is how things work" meeting. You'll probably be in a room with about 30 other folks who REALLY don't think they belong there and who will be REALLY vocal about complaining. There were two prostitutes in mine, I kid you not.

Is The Fountainhead the first Ayn Rand book you've read? If you like it, I highly recommend Atlas Shrugged. It's one of my all-time-favorites and I feel like reading it made a significant impact on my life.

Hope you enjoy your time at the beach.

love,
fiwa

g-man said...

Good luck with the job search, and I hope your hand feels better.

{tossing you a beer} I hope the rain lets up.

We can chat about mothers another time ;)

LL said...

Good to see you back at it darlin! Been missin' ya.

I too have to second fiwa with the Atlas Shrugged recommendation. It's a long read, but... interesting.

Of course if you just want cotton candy for the brain... you've got to read the Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Both Sides of Ben Marlan said...

You rule knight. its really a pleasure to read your writing. its flows very well, like good storytelling. I have no time for books, although i did read the Fountainhead twice. the person who told me abt it said she was reading it the 2nd time. so i did the same. its a great book, but idealism is dangerous.
the rain is fucking rainy here too. isnt this July? I thought it was april showers

Farmer*swife said...

Your comments make me laugh! kcinnova, Jay, and Ben -- funny.

And, everyone else too!

Hey, Happy Belated birthday! [Mine is in six days.] I won't be prettier and wiser like you though; I'll be saggier and pissed off about it. :-D

ms. c. said...

i'm so going to start calling my boobs 'the girls.'

'the fountainhead': it changed my life when i was a teen, but horrible writing, imo. i say horrible, but roark is so finely drawn. i mean, i read it AGES ago, and i can still see his angular features. hmmm. anyhoo, imo, i think the theme is dated (capitalism a virtue? not so much in modern society--and in the u.s. it's plain dangerous (e.g.: the state of healthcare)) but i don't blame rand for this, given where she comes from.

ps good lord, why can't you and dana change your fonts?
