Have a Nice Day

I suppose it would be petty for me to be pissed that most of the money I worked for last cut-off was used to pay the DSL bill... so I can work some more. Never mind spending on frivolus things like my son's milk and diapers, or food to last us until the end of the month. Not exactly something that will make me spring out of bed and yell "I'm ready" right before I start my shift right? Right.

Oh well, rules are rules I suppose; after all, I'm merely the agent that is the lifeblood of the business. Perish the thought that I'm upset. Oh no not at all. That would be incerdibly petty of me. I have had plenty of shit sandwiches to eat, so what's another bite, right?

Happy Valentines to everyone :) Three consecutive non-angry posts must be a sign of progress for me. Anyways, this song right here ("Dig" by Incubus) fits today quite nicely.


If I turn into another
Dig me up from under
What is covering the better part of me

Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

Happy new year to all :) It's been so busy I've only gotten around to post now. I can't believe they're actually publishing the crap I'm writing in a frenzied rush. To date, I've had three articles published (or four if you're counting the two separate features in the second magazine I wrote for) and a new one I hammering out to make the Valentine's deadline. I'm still seeing how long I can get away with my current work ethic. If I relied on writing as a means of livelihood, I'd be out on the street. Case in point: I'm still waiting for the complimentary copy from Maxim because I'm too flat-ass broke to buy my own copy. In fact, I'm hemming and hawing over how much they changed my final draft, and whether I've finally made a fool of myself with that last article (unless I've already become a laughing stock with my earlier stuff and don't realize it yet). The little money I get out of it doesn't hurt at all, but it's honestly more for the gratification of seeing my name and stuff printed in glossy format.
It's late...I hope work doesn't get too busy tomorrow so I can finally get this sucker done before my shift ends.
