Unemployment is huge everywhere. Foreclosers, closed shops, crowded gyms. It is the new moda of being. In an odd way I say it will effect fashion, recipes and back to school!
This morning I got up and called the unemployment office because I needed to ask a question. Of a person. I was told by the auto-man voice that it would be about a 20 minute wait. Lately I think "lemonade" in place of "rage" so I practiced my bagpipe music with my phone earphones in waiting for the moment when I could speak to a live one. It all worked out great.
I then cut off a UPC code label from some feta cheese package and sent it in with my register receipt circled to get $3.00 back like 6 months from now.
I was on a roll.
I then mailed in my final check for my balance due on my cancelled cable. I am going total web. So jazzed.
Now it is time to find out about who needs movie extras in the Big Apple. I have time and can use the cash. I googled that.
Sometimes bad things can expose us to good things: I eat at home, I walk more, I don't watch TV and I read more.
Sometimes bad things can expose us to bad things: I eat more, I am on-line more, I Facebook more, and I panic secretly more.
But all in all I feel like it will all work out. I have no idea how or when, but it just will. I wonder what other people like me in New York do with their days and minds?
I better get to bed so I can get up and clean my middle drawer and google "Rutherford B. Hayes" and "free dental."
