Thursday eve and just a small bit of bewildered rant.

This is my husband's artwork. Cool eh? Well, that is bout all that is cool right now with my world. Life sucks. I mean it, it really does.

You know, Lousiana is top ranked in a lot of things, poverty is one of them. What about the families where both parents work and they are still struggling to keep their heads above water.

If you look at my full profile you will see that it says nonprofit on my choice of organization. It's not true, not really. Only if you look at my paycheck. It's a sorry thing to know that you won't get a raise no matter how good you are at your job, how well you keep things together by yourself and how wonderfully sweet you are to people. They don't give a damn, apparently as they aren't giving you a raise. Not one in over 4 and a half years.

I am just at the end of my tolerance for this lack, I am almost at the point of singing that Johnny Paycheck song, yeppers. TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT! Combust Pissed Fire Eyes

In another part of my life, I am attempting to become a published author. I am a writer, I want to say that up front. No matter that I am not published, I still write, and yeah, I'd say that since I have finished a whole manuscript of well over 100,000 words, that I am pretty freakin serious about it.

But, what is up with joining this or that organization? Do I have to kiss ass there too? I am pretty sure I aint good at ass kissing. In fact, I know better. I Can't

Anyways, I am not above being sweet when needed, I can fake it with the best of them, I am southern after all. But I don't want to have to bow down and kiss ass for something I know is good. Pretty much screwing myself right out the gate, huh?

Ah well, tomorrow is friday and I am nothing if not changeable, at least, according to my sign.

Balanced my ass.

The artwork is beautiful, Jenn. He's very talented -- and so are you!

If you're that unhappy with your job, is there another place that you can look? I'm a big believer in finding one's bliss. Life's way too short to work jobs that we hate.

Hey girlie, I am the queen of the grumpy bitches, so I know some things about wanting to tell everyone to go screw themselves. It is extremely liberating, by the way. *g* When you are a rich author and your husband starts making the big paper for his artwork, you will look back on this and shake your sexy ass whilst you laugh. Keep on being sweet and doing your thing - good things will come to you. I know this and I have spoken so it will happen. It's OK to rage against the machine every now and then, so blog it out and keep on truckin'. And if that doesn't work, just pull a Cartman and tell the people at your job, "Screw you guys, I'm going home!!!" Damn hippies.
