What have you learned today?

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

I learned that if you're looking for a job as a proofreader, and Liberty National Life Insurance calls you up, then they don't give a flying fuck about whether you're a proofreader or not--they want salespeople. these people need to die.

I learned another reason why my job is awesome...when the store has to close down for bad weather, we still get paid for the hours that we're scheduled for! So I don't have to worry about all the hours I'm missing this week, and technically I'm at home on the clock right now!

:D :D :D

I freaking LOVE this job!!!

I learned that my "best" friend gave up guardianship of her son, even though she isn't moving to Colorado after all. I think she just doesn't want to be a responsible mother. meh.

Last night I learned something. I've been thinking about singing something from 'Sunset Boulevard' for my next audition, but I haven't actually seen the show. So I looked up a bit of the old movie on youtube, and learned that that's where the quote, "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille." comes from.

I learned that if you absolutely MUST eat at this time of night, that your best bet is to throw together a salad of baby greens (*DROOL*) with sliced grape tomatoes, thin-grated cheese (and I mean THIN) and Asian sesame seed salad dressing and eat it.

I learned that there was about 15 feet of ice behind my car still. Even though they'd plowed the OTHER SIDE of the goddamn parking lot.

I learned last night that they have an awesome drink at Bar Louie...It's rum and vodka (I ordered it without the vodka), crushed blueberries, blueberry syrup, crushed mint leaves, and lemonade. Comes with a garnish of fresh lemon, mint leaves, and blueberries...very very tasty! (Even still, for some reason I only ended up drinking about a fourth of the one I got.)

well, before that drink, when was the last time you'd had a drink?

me, I learned, on the 28th of January, that not only had it been twenty years and twenty-two days since my grandfather died, but I also learned HOW he died. (all this time I'd thought it was a heart attack that did him in--turns out that he had bypass surgery, and his heart--which was weak--couldn't handle the trauma and apparently gave out and that's how he died.)

I learned that my audiologist (who is a Ph.D doctor, not an MD doctor) is probably a fucking quack.

*Thinks about the effects of mixing peanut butter and a dog's mouth. Imagines the same effects as applied to a duck instead.* *snicker snicker*

I learned that my dad was kind enough to give me some money to help me out of my little money problem involving my former roommate--whose parents are bigger bitches than she is.
