... and so, the job search continues, slowly and fruitlessly.
hey, I'M artist...ly inclined, right ?!
i'm also considering an opening in a chicken slaughterhouse. on the one hand, i cry if i see a hurt animal; but then again, i could casually drop that i'm an eviscerator at cocktail parties.
who says hamilton isn't a land of opportunity !
truth be told, i'm not very motivated to find work since i'm moving in a few months anyway. in desperation, i've basically tried to bribe myself into getting a job with the promise of a special gift from myself, to myself.

i made a belated new year's resolution yesterday to read 100 books in 2007. so far i think i've only read laughable loves (milan kundera), les enfants terrible (jean cocteau) and wuthering heights (duh), so i gotta get crack-a-lackin' (... also, i think i need to brush up on my ebonics because i'm pretty sure that doesn't mean what i think it does). i don't think i'll actually read that many books this year, but i do love to indulge my obsession with list-making, so here goes:
- finish cosmicomics by italo calvino
- conversations with professor y by celine
- decline and fall by evelyn waugh
- candide by voltaire
- gravity's rainbow by thomas pynchon
- the invisible man by ralph ellison
- suggestions ???
i just want to be really, really well-read, because at the end of the day all i really am is an insufferable know-it-all.
