Are you there, blog? It's me, Jennie.

One week in, and I still don't have access to everything I need in order to do my job and so here I sit, twiddling my thumbs and twirling my hair. Although, not at the same time because I only have two hands so that'd be impossible. Or at least really hard. Anyway. It's not that I mind mindlessly surfing the internet all day, it's just that I have so much time to mindlessly surf the internet THAT I'M RUNNING OUT OF INTERNET. My Google Reader is practically empty and if it goes to ZERO, prepare for FULL-BLOWN PANIC. You know, running through the building and screaming and tearing out hair and rending of garments etc. It's not pretty, is what I'm saying.

Yesterday, my coffeemaker went kaput, making this the fourth coffeemaker to die in our apartment. I blame the kitchen, not Heidi or I, because THROUGH NO FAULT OF OUR OWN*, most of the other kitchen appliances have also broken. Clearly there is some sort of Hellmouth under our kitchen so I'll place the blame there. I went exploring at lunch, even though I had no idea where I was going, which is a dangerous thing for someone like me who gets lost in her own apartment. Anyway, not only did I find a Target so I could replace my coffeemaker, but I found a Panera and a Chipotle AND A BOOKSTORE and a bunch of other stores that I had no use for today, but it's nice to know they're there. So, you know, it's a good thing this job pays more, is what I'm saying.

As someone else who's at the end of the internet, I feel your pain.

I'm psyched that you found a Target and a bookstore! Dollar Spot, holla!

Tam said...

when I started my previous job, I surfed the internets for three months before I had actually work I could complete. I didn't even know about blogging back then! Enjoy it while you can.

Is the Panera near the bookstore? Is it in a place that's kind of a mini Greene? Many goods eats there.

In a previous life, I commuted past the giant touchdown Jesus.

mg! the Dollar Spot is the most magical place in all the land.

Tam, I don't feel bad about surfing the internet, because they gave me a privacy screen. Now no one can see what I'm doing on my computer which clearly means they don't care if I surf the internet all day.

Julie, that's exactly where it is. I was really excited when I found it. Mostly for Target.

That mini Greene area is also home to a Smokey Bones. Please bring some home.

Excuse me, but Chipotle is the most magical place in all the land.
