Long time no update (Alan)

So yeah. It's been a while. So I'll start from where I left off. So just after I decided that I'm going to tell the government to fuck off, I go to this interview with CRC Advertising in Falls Church. Sounded cool from the ad. Entry level, management training, oh, and did I mention the twelve-inch dildo ass-fucking they give you when you get there?

Basically, what happens is they throw a lot of jargon at you in the interview, don't ask you to say much, and uninformed non-business majors say, "Ooh, aah!" But what they're really saying is, "We want you to come back tomorrow from 9am to 5pm and sell coupons door to door! But according to them, this is not a big waste of a college grad's time, this is direct advertising. Thankfully, I did not find this out the hard way. A truly altruistic person who had gone through the process only a few days before had posted her horrible experience on her blog. Her name is India, and everybody here who has half a heart should pay her a visit. Click here to be a decent human being.

So I've been moping around a lot, just dragging my feet to and from work. Every now and then I've been lifted to better moods by my friends and family. So I'm back at the job hunt and I'm expecting 3-5 responses for interviews this week. If you guys have some good luck charms or something like that, please work their magic for me. I don't know how much more I can take at my current job, which is a dog daycare near Dupont Circle. Not that I don't like dogs, it's just that I'm going flat broke with it. And the overqualification part kinda sucks, too.

It's the holiday season, and I'll bet a whole bunch of you are just screaming "Whoopah-dee-doo!" Bah-humbug, I say. Santa can shove it. I'm stuck here, in the asshole of our great nation, working. There's no snow, I make $9 an hour, and...

Well, there is no "and." It just plain sucks. So here's my holiday wish list in no particular order:

1. A job
2. Money
3. Snow
4. Spontaneous combustion of the CRC Advertising office in Falls Church
5. World Peace

oh yeah...

6. A choo-choo
