The Debil
Would you give up your eternal soul to this man? I would think about it if he gave me his lame ass trident and I could jab him in the face with it. That sounds harsh, but he's The Debil, dang it! 

By the way, did you know if you play devil's advocate, you run the risk of having your bedroom annotated with crosses and baby oil by your fundamentalist family and friends? And that's one to grow on!

I was thinking yesterday that I should become a stand-up comedian so I could hang around other comedians and they could be my cool, funny friends. I even had an idea for a routine where I would go on stage and just read my mail. I would tell the audience I hope they wouldn't mind, but I really need to read my mail before I started my act and the bit would continue from there. Comedy gold, huh?

Have a happy, baby!

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and the only thing to show for it is the leftovers. I had two Thanksgiving dinners this year. One on Thanksgiving day at Aunt Linda and Uncle Jerry's and an another dinner at the Group Home on Black Friday. For the fun of it, we at the Home decided to throw a post-Thanksgiving dinner for our family and friends with a turkey and everything. Tim called it "Thanksgiving: The Sequel". Despite a turkey that took a bit longer to bake than we anticipated, I think everybody enjoyed themselves. I'm just satisfied I didn't burn the dishes I made and that they were actually edible (Nothing ruins a dinner faster than a trip to the hospital to get your stomach pumped!).

Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the big day, I'm going to blog the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! Check it out here!

So what's going on? Is anybody doing anything cool? I know noted plumbing monkey and friend, Theresa Keihn, flew around on a private jet with a billionaire just recently and Mr. John Oak Dalton got a new job (Congrats again, John!). As for me, I'm still laid off. I've applied for unemployment, done some scribbling here and there, and I'm waiting for Thanksgiving to make its presence known. In other words, I'm doing my part to maintain the mundane (No need to thank me!).

Well, I got laid off today and it snowed a bit. Nothing much to add.

November 15, 2005
For anybody who's interested, I still haven't been laid off yet. I called in yesterday and I was told to not come in, but that's about it. Luckily, I still have a couple of PTO (Paid Time Off) days left so I used one for Monday. I guess we'll see what happens when I call in later today.

November 12, 2005
Well, I didn't get laid off yesterday though it could happen next week. Monday possibly. And here's some more Bad News: It looks like Arrested Development (You know, the funniest show on TV!) is getting cancelled. Yet another great show that ends way too soon. Sigh. I'll be watching until the bitter end though and a big chicken dance to all of you who never gave the Bluths a shot in the first place!

Time for another progress report!

Good News
I think my bout with Bell's Palsy is about over. Things have generally returned back to normal though I still have some trouble spitting (Aren't you glad I shared that tidbit?).

Bad News
I received my hospital bill from my night in the emergency room and oy! Though my insurance took care of most of it, it's still pretty pricey. Why, oh why am I not independently wealthy?

Good News
Though I know I have no chance of getting it, I applied for the receptionist position at work (Okay, stop giggling!). My application was not the greatest. It reminded me of all those lousy cover letters I consistently crank out time after time. Oh well, at least I tried.

Bad News
It looks like I may get laid off tomorrow. I repeat: Why, oh why am I not independently wealthy?

Good News
Reader Copy
I finally printed up my 24 hour comic book that I made earlier this year. It's such an odd, little book about a bratty boy, a talking fish, and other assorted nonsense. If you want to give it a shot, some more info can be found here!
