SPN: Sam's Bright Smile


♥ I have GOT to go to the grocery store today, the cupboards are bare (even for me). Problem is...nothing at all sounds appetizing. I don't know what to get! I'm going to make a quiche because I found a recipe that looks good, but that won't last a week. Any suggestions? (I'm vegetarian.)

♥ I truefax got a job rejection email this morning that included this:
We regret to inform you that another candidate has been chosen for the position. Our decision is likely to be disappointing to you, but you should not regard it as any reflection on you or your abilities.
Well thanks. That soothes the sting tremendously! *sarcasm* 0_o

♥ I have come to realize that I do not know how to find a job that isn't PR or library-related. I never heard from the temp agency, so I'm trying a new one today. I looked at craigslist but there was literally nothing. How else do people find jobs???

♥ I'd love to do some editing or maybe even some technical writing (I actually do have experience), but all the google-able-things seem uber-sketchy.

♥ But at this point, I'd do most anything if I could work 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and someone would pay me and it didn't involve a freezer or a shovel.

♥ I'm in a crabby/grumpy mood but determined to turn it around as I have quite a long To Do List today. Will you help cheer me up? Anything goes...if it makes you happy, it probably will make me happy too. Please?

pretty words

I have finished every single thing on my To Do List for today, except going to the grocery store and finishing the Jared!handspam of doom. *high fives self*

Also, I successfully set up my new DVD player and Netflix streaming, all by myself. I feel quite pleased and accomplished as this project was scaring me, for no known reason. YAY!

Here's a laugh: Today I applied for a position online and they were kind enough to wait 42 minutes before sending me the rejection email. Laugh or cry people! Laugh or cry!

But what I'm really posting to talk about is that the other night I was lying in bed reading a book of Pablo Neruda's poetry and was so taken with some of his phrasing. (I also remember rei_c once telling me "That man knew how to use words.")

Anyway, this is all out of context and means nothing to anyone, but whenever a line would strike me, I'd text it to myself. They're too pretty to delete unshared.

(To clarify, none of these lines go together, it's just one line from one poem, one from another, etc.)
