A Word to the Wise (Part II)

If you feel the need to trash me behind my back, perhaps you shouldn't do it in front of the guy who's dating my sister.

Just a thought.

Driving in DC sucks!

So I had a meeting today at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue. It's a gorgeous building, and it meant free breakfast, so it was awesome. Until...

First of all, parking in the hotel garage--for 4 hours--was $20. Even in DC that's a little excessive, don't you think? You can park cheaper at the airport.

And then, I come up out of the parking garage and there are fire trucks and police on both ends of the street, blocking it...and blocking me in. I got so flustered trying to get out of there that I went from the hotel to Olney via NY Ave./295.

And I haven't been able to find any news on what caused it, which probably means that some dignitary or another was arriving or leaving and they shut down the street for them. Welcome to DC, where "I got stuck behind a motorcade" is a valid excuse for being late to work.

I am too old for this...

The sad fact is that I cannot any longer go out clubbing all night and shake off the effects the next morning. I had a fabulous time at Nation last night, but now I want to die.

So after years of loathing my job(s)...

I've decided to go back to school to be a librarian. I figure, if I've never had a PR job I've actually liked, maybe I should consider that this just isn't my calling.

Ok, now this is the part where people who know me well break up laughing. I want to work in a school. With kids. Possibly little ones.

Of course, it's going to take me two years to finish school, so I'll still be at this job for awhile. But seriously, there are people out there who like their jobs. I've heard about them. I want to be one.

But first I have to take the fucking GRE.

Mother Nature is Trying to Kill Me

It is completely unfair for the weather to be in the 70s and 80s if it's not going to stick. I took all of my summer clothes to the dry cleaner but now my feet are cold because I wore the cute sandals today.
