Brilliant!

I'm sort of out of it today, I guess. I don't feel out of it, but I am. I put the pot roast in the crock pot at 8:40, turned it on high, and set the timer for an hour and a half, planning to turn it down to low when the buzzer went off.

An hour an a half later, I went to the kitchen, turned off the buzzer...and realized I'd neglected to plug the crockpot into the wall.

While, at 8:40, I was preparing the roast, I told myself, "You haven't eaten breakfast. You need to do that."

An hour and a half later, I realized I was still hungry. Because I had forgotten to eat breakfast.

I got dressed about a half hour ago, planning to go for a walk. Now I don't want to. I think I'll go to the library instead. I just finished the fluffy romance I was reading, and I said, out loud (this is embarrassing), "Awwww." Then I said, out loud, "I'm such a sap."

I am the only one in this house. I am such a stunning conversationalist.
Brilliant!

For the past few days I've been feeling depressed, worthless, whiny, lazy, and no-good.

This means it's about that time of month for me.

However, it also means I have STILL been unsuccessful with finding a job. I put in an application to work at the maid place, because it seems like they're always hiring, but I haven't heard back from them and they start a new training session on Monday, so I guess...whatever. I just thought of that one as my failsafe. No WAY could I not get that job, yanno? I also sent off an application to a newspaper to be an advertising assistant (or something like) because it didn't require me to have experience in the area. That seems to be one of my biggest problems...every time I come across a job listing that looks good, it says, "Must have experience!" It's unlikely that I'll find a listing for a tour boat crew member around here. Really, that's all I'm good for.

When I worked at the hotel, I answered the phone and took reservations, but that doesn't count as "switchboard experience." When I worked on the boats, I had to know CPR, but that doesn't make me a registered nurse.

It's just frustrating.
