Job Search et al

  • Please tell me that unemployment is still a problem in this country and that others are having difficulty finding a job, as I am. Nothing like making you feel like a total zero than job searching. God, I miss the days of youth, when President Clinton was in office and I had just graduated from college and there were more jobs than people. It was a new hire's market!
  • Hey teenagers, don't come into the store just to walk around and talk on your cell phone, go stand outside, why even come into the store? PS - you do know you look like a complete dork, right?
  • Why is everyone so upset at President Obama? Please remember he didn't create this mess, he INHERITED it!
  • How come Tom Selleck never plays a bad guy? So typically Republican, he only plays strong men who fight for justice, if you only take the same role over and over again, are you acting?
  • Confession, my ultimate television guilty pleasure is The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I know much of it is staged but I can't get enough of my Jersey girls, its a hoot! Plus, I think there might be some mob connections, tee hee.
  • The Sacramento Library system is starting up a Jane Austen book club, I hope this catches on, I would love to join one where I am living!
  • Does any else wonder how Nicholas Sparks gets published? What awful saccharin books he writes! The sad part is that his books are always on the bestseller list. Just goes to prove those lists are not very indicative of the best in the publishing world.

Deciding on taking a trip which involves flying - try this site! It searches all the other travel websites including airlines pages and gives you the lowest price. It also gives you various flight options, non stop vs. 1-stop, times, etc. I use this site first when looking for airfare, it costs you nothing, so next time you are booking, give it a try!

Those "Jersey Girls" are a much more like New Yorkers than New Jerseyans. And "Jersey Shore" is not the Jersey Shore that I grew up with.

I agree about Austen (hope it catches on) and about Sparks (don't get it).

Ha Ha! I agree about Jersey and I have to say (with much guilt) that I also enjoy the New York Housewives, althought this season is making me very sad. Anyhoo, I agree with all your comments! Amen about Nicholas Sparks! Fun post!

Unemployment is still a problem in this country and that others are having difficulty finding a job. It's tough out there. But you are right - it's just absurd to blame Obama for a problem Bush and his cronies created.

Amen to Austen Clubs catching on.
She deserves to be apprecaited and enjoyed by most of the illitrate folks in the States.

Job market sucks. It is sad that more and more people are becoming brainless and blaming a person who is trying to fix the mess he inherited.

Merci - But those Jersey girls are so stereotypical Jersey, its delicious to watch!

H - glad to see I have a sister to share in this guilty pleasure!

Secret Agent - I guess when its not in the news everyday, you start to think "well everyone must have found a job and its just me."

Austen - amen to Jane A comment! Glad to know I'm not the only one struggling to find a job.

Joe - I am sorry, I feel your pain.
