I really want a job. I want something that will take up 40 hours of my week. Of course I don't want just any job, i want one that I feel like being at 40(or+) a week. The short version of this story? I'm bored. Really really bored. Not 100% of the time, I have stuff to do. But I don't have enough stuff to do that challenges me.

I'm not trying to be over important and go on about how I cant be bothered with the mundane things in life because there not INTERESTING enough. I'm a workaholic. I legitimately find the little mundane stuff easier to deal with if I've been awake for 36 hour or something recently exploded.

Kids these day...

Blurry lees house

What is the world coming to? You dang kids need to stay off my lawn!

Since the last time you saw me in Baltimore (around Augusts?) I found a job at the beginning of 2010. Not that it was easy. I worked odd jobs to make loose end from there to here. Do the math, peoples, that abut 6 moths unemployed. I know that's not a record in the lumpy, ass-punched economy, but I feel like I need to shield myself from the forth coming ethical judgments on my hypocrisy.

See I got a job on a mussel farm. Its a good job, the work is fun and my bosses are cool and respectful. But the hitch? That right, taking a job in the meat industry after almost 20 years as a vegetarian causes a few snafus, and here's the best of them.....

On my very first day I was set to work on the hopper. All I had to do was use a little rake push mussels from a basket into the culling machine, a big spinning coils that will sort them by size. As I pushed the mussels through, I saw a starfish. This is the first time I have touch a star fish outside of the Maryland Aquarium.

I peel the little star fish out of the basket, away and away from the machine. Given my proclivities of course I start feeling very good about myself. I cradle the starfish as I walk over to the railing by the water. Feeling like I've started to off set my dark deeds of the day with this one act, I fling the starfish as far as I can, thinking "go little starfish be free!, I'm setting you free!"

Before the Kevin hit the water, yes I named him Kevin names are important, he struck me as a Kevin. Like Kevin Bacon, Costner, Federline, Klein, Sorbo and Spacey he seemed plucky, resilient and just a bit gay. But that's beside the point. Twitter has ruined my attention span. Hey look pudding.....hmmmpudding...........nap*

Before Kevin the starfish hit the water a SEAGULL swooped out of mid air and ate his ass. Whole. I didn't even know that a seagull could eat a starfish, let alone in one gulp. Since then I have seen a seagull eat a mussel the size of of my palm in one swallow. No lie.

As my friend Claire that night explained it to me, form the victims perspective.

'Tori,' she said,'you threw that stafish INTO a seagull'
That first cup of coffee in the morning is the high point of my day. Despite the fact that I never have been and probably never will be a morning person, I start my days at 4:30am. I wake up hating the world, the first thing I think about is all the stuff I don’t want to do that day. The stuff I put off for tomorrow that's about to catch up. A few minutes after I roll out of bed and hit the floor like wet sand, I start to remember myself. Slowly, I start to remember that my day holds a promises beyond the of sucking ass. Then the first sip of caffeine turns over and it’s my daily epiphany. This day might be good. This might be the best day of my life.
It's been a while since I posted here, but I am in fact alive. Graduated but unemployed. This is both fun and the suck.
Have the free time to do whatever I want
Sit around and read about science all day
Have time to up date livejournal

Have enough free time to update livejournal

Didn't see that one coming.....

I just watched live streaming video of the first black man to be sworn in as president on my lap top.

Now before you kids get TOO audaciously hopeful
My new roommate is teaching me poi. For those not familiar with the term please refer to the image below.


Writer's Block: Prohibited

Today marks the passing of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which repealed Prohibition. It might seem crazy to us now, but alcohol was illegal in the U.S. for 13 years. What common vice do you think is most likely to be outlawed in the future?

Weed. Oh wait....
YES! I know I am a nerd of truly epic proportions, but well, this make's me a bit wet.

I'm trying to remain cautiously excited despite the fact that Abrams is directing not producing. Hopefully this doesn't pan out as unfortunately as 'Cloverfield'. I mean the trailer looks tight, but the head writers have
credits to their name's such as Xena Warrior Princess.
