.38 Special

Man, what a difference a few years makes. Yesterday was my 38th birthday. I celebrated by not shoving a shotgun barrel in my mouth and pulling the trigger. It was the weakest, wackest birthday I've had in a long time. Of course, I don't really get to celebrate until this weekend when I'm with my wife, but still, it was pretty rotten.

I had a second interview, this time over the phone, with Ch.arm City. I thought it was a good omen that they set the date on my birthday. Turns out it wasn't that good of an omen. Man, oh man was that a rough interview. Yes, of course Satan's Anus is smaller than Satan's Sandbox, I understand economies of scale and such. Give me a shot. Even if I got through that interview, I still have yet another one to go, which I won't know if I advanced to until mid-January. The wheels of major city bureaucracy moves slowly.

Just looking back on the blog thing and in blog terms, my shit has changed significantly. I started this thing as a bow-tied, 34 year old malcontent. Now I'm a 38 YEAR OLD malcontent who wears fewer bowties!!! That's a lot of change, yo!

I need it to be, for sanity's sake.

I find myself in the fucked up position of hating where I am and thinking I'll potentially hate where I end up. The reason? I fucking hate what I do. It won't matter where I do it.

I had the 2nd interview, now I gotta hope I get the third interview. Or maybe not. At this point I just need closure.

Happy Birthday Zed! Tried to find your blog seven days ago but couldn't recall your address. Had to go all back through my own archives. Aint that pitiful? Haven't been by in quite a while, I know, which is more than an understatement. I see you're still gloomy and moody. I don't think that's ever gonna change with you.

I forgot too your birthday is basically a week after mine. Sorry it wasn't a better celebration for you. But maybe next year, right? See you got rid of the bowties...
