Okay, so guess what.....I have found that there's still chivalry in this world. It's in the form of homeless men. I was at the bus stop on my way to Seattle when I was standing there and a guy gave me his seat. I kept telling him I was fine, but he wouldn't hear of it. One of the other guys there, as I was pulling out my money for the bus, gave me a bus transfer. When we got on the bus, I went to sit in the back, and a family of five got on a couple stops later. They were parents and 3 pretty little girls. One of them was sitting by me, and she scooted away from me, and I looked at her and asked her if I was crowding her. She was brutally honest and from then on, I had a fun conversation with a 7, 8, and 9 year old. The parents were nice, too. This was the picture of a happy family who was riding to Seattle to have breakfast and spend time together without running around doing Saturday busy-work. It was refreshing to see, and I was happy all day.
Even when I pissed off the Hot Topic worker when I told her that HT made a mistake by being a sell-out with the likes of Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, I wasn't fazed.
Yes, it was a great day walking around Seattle with my friend Carol who is willing to cross the water on the the ferry for 5 hours of window shopping with me. When takes her about that to take the round trip. Thanks friend!!

I hope to remember this post, or be reminded of it when I have a really shitty day and post an angry one. I really had fun. Even when I went to Fred Meyer and had a guy behind me in Customer Service get irritated that my request was taking so long. I handled it well. I told him that the guy was helping me with something and that if he felt so inclined, he could test customer service guy's multi-tasking skills by being helped while I was being helped (I said that much more politely than I said it here). Chivalry....right....HAHAHAHA!!!!

I'm back. Thanks for the advice about the fall activities!

Wanted to tell everyone that I'm looking for day jobs. I know the economy is saturated with people who are more experienced than me, but I hope they see that, since I'm trying to stay in the company, they will see that I can be valuable.

It would be organizing the lives of 2 docs who probably can be very ADD. My org skills suck to a point, but I think I can manage, since I'll have my own desk.

Oh, the insecurity of it all!!

Jim and Cora, I hope that you've heard something. Congrats again!!

You do look, my son, in a moved sort,
As if you were dismayed. Be cheerful, sir.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air;
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

Passage from Shakespeare's Tempest

I just liked this enough to post it (and Colin Firth makes me think of Shakespeare...or vice versa). :D
