I've got something in my pocket.....

Thursday I was at home sick, sick, sick from eating at the *award winning* restaurant, Jack's, when I reached in my pocket and pulled out.....

A NEW JOB!!!!!!!

I realize, folks, that in the short time I've had this blog, I've had several jobs. Ok, ignore that fact because this is THE JOB. The One. And I'm not just saying that to justify my job-hopping. I wouldn't have been job-hopping if I could have made enough money working at the newspaper. But hellow - who can live on $500 a month!?!? So.....the radio station HIRED ME!

As any ketchup fan will tell you, good things come to those who wait.

Boy, that final interview was the clincher! I met the regional manager and chatted with him for about ten minutes. He walked out of the conference room and went right to the general manager's office and said, "Hire that girl." Yay for me! Apparently he was very impressed by the fact that I really knew where I was at and where I was coming from....and not in any rhetorical sense, either. I'm together, peeps. Smooth. Witty. Charming. And hired!!!

So, if you are ever in the 'hood, you can check out my productions at 92.7 the van!

I'm smiling. Can you tell?

Well done & good for you. You are please and everyone is pleased for you too. Success is not just an individual thing, all your family share in it. We had similar good news in our family today.

Sistah: Oh, yeah, I'M the blessing fairy! Would you like a rain cloud while I'm at it!?!? ;)

DaveM: Congratulations to you and your family! It is a good feeling to start a new endeavor...I wish you the best of success!

Chilly: Oooooo, I just can't....I've worked so hard at overcoming the negativity of my situation here, I just can't bring myself to retaliate and flush all that effort down the toilet.

Miss Blithe: OMG, I certainly hope so! My idea is to work in a short talk program on the AM station if I can. :)
