MLM's bother the bejesus out of me and also a big thank you to twsketchaday

So while I'm sitting there miserable at work wondering when it'll be all over.  I got a text message from an acquaintance. 

Just to give you a bio about the guy:
-I knew him in high school.
-We talked every now and then.
-He found me on Facebook.
-WE never chatted or hung out. If we did, it was usually in a group setting from mutual friends.

So anyways, he's been calling me like crazy.  One of his voicemails kinda started like this:

" Yo, Mr. Smith.  Long time no chat bro!  I haven't hung out with you in ages.  I've been doing good man.  I've been making a crapload of money.  Since we're so close, I wanted you to be a part of it as well.  This XXX (MLM company) has been taking care of me, bro.  I put down a 100 bucks and I've been making money like crazy bro. WE gotta hang out man.  The sooner you give me a call, the sooner you'll get hooked up man. BIG TIME BRO! I'll give you a call tomorrow night and see what's going on bro."


So.. uh yeah. That message drew out to be a three minute voicemail on my phone.  What a freaking cumquat...I hardly know this guy and he's called me like ten times in the past three days.  I plan on calling him and kindly letting him know to f*ck off.  We'll see how that goes.

And why the heck is he saying bro so much?!

In other news, I was honored to have twsketchaday draw me something pretty dope.

Check em out twsketchaday and give him some props!

Sorry. Sorry...

Oh boy.  Lots have happened.  Lots has changed.

Thanksgiving went by.  Christmas went by.  New Years went by as well.  

Found a job. (Yay, go me.)

But then... here's what follows:

1) I'm not happy with my job.  I don't see any room for growth within the company. 
2) My co-workers are very "cliquey" so it's hard to gauge or engage anything.
3) They watch me like a hawk. I swear they monitor when I go to the restroom or when I step outside for a cigarette break.

I know I shouldn't complain.  But.. it's just really awkward. I'm sociable by nature, but I've turned into a loner within the past month or so.

But, I won't ever make the mistake of quitting before finding another job.  3 months of.. just sitting there. Applying forjobs.  Going into stupid interviews.  Answering the same dumb old questions over and over.

In other news, I finally watched a TED show on David Blaine and how he held his breath for 17 minutes.  This guy is a freaking pimp.
