Frustrated just begins to describe it

So my temp job is turning out to be a bust. For the past month it's been half days or no days. This week alone I worked 3 and a half hours on Monday, 2 and a half hours today and I don't go back till Thursday. It's frustrating because it means my checks are tiny and I can't pay my bills.

Time to dust off the old resume and start the job search again.

When I took this job it was supposed to be 37 to 40 hours a week and last at least to December. Funny, my calender says its only September.


What constitutes an invasion of privacy?

I'm on the official John Barrowman mailing list and was disturbed by something I saw there.  Apparently, I could have read this wrong, someone saw John walking his dogs near his home and followed him home.  The person in question said she didn't stand there and snap pictures and that there were no signs that said keep out. From the tone of her post, it sounds like she's going to go back and stare in his backyard again unless he expressly says not to.  That's borderline stalker behavior.

Let me get this off my chest, and then you guys on my flist can tell me I'm wrong.  It's none of my business where a celebrity I like lives. If I happen to run into them on the street, or in a store, that's one thing. I've run into celebrities a few times when I worked at Barnes and Noble. I was always polite and professional knowing that they were there shopping and not there for me to drool over or harrass for an autograph. If I bumped into someone on the street or in a restauraunt, I would gauge the situation to see if it was an apporpirate time for asking for an autograph. 

At no time would I ever follow someone home and decide that now that I know where they live it's okay to keep going by their house whenever I feel like it.  Someone on the Barrowman list pointed out that John's partner Scott did not ask for people to start following him around just because the man he loves is famous. What if one of their nieces or nephews happened to be visiting? Just because Uncle John is a celebrity is no reason for their privacy to be invaded. And it is also an invasion of John's privacy.

Bottom line, public situations are one thing. If you want to ask someone for an autograph when you run into them on the street, at a store, in a restuaurant, whatever, that's your choice. Following them home is stepping across a fine line. 


Return to Cranford

Return to Cranford is on PBS.  I love Judi Dench and the rest of the cast.  I just really miss Martin Shaw as Peter Jennkins.  The other guy's just not the same.

Realtives on Facebook

My Uncle just friended me on Facebook.  He's a conservative Republican.  Wonder how shocked he'll be when he sees some of the stuff on my page. <G>


Richard Dean Anderson

60 years ago today in the wonderful state of Minnesota, Richard Dean Anderson came into the world.    I wish my dear Richard a happy birthday.

Sentinel on Sci Fi

Why did I not realize that Jenny Calender and Lila Morgan were on the Sentinel?  See what happens when Sci Fi has a marathon!


American Idol

I've been watching the auditions on Youtube, cause I can't be bothered to interrupt my regular television viewing.  That's just the way I am, sorry. Anyway, most of the people that I have seen being put through to Hollywood I have liked.  A couple of them I think could go all the way.  However, there are times when I wonder exactly why they've made the decision to put someone through.  

When someone goes through that I'm not sure about usually Simon will say no.  That happened a couple of times in Atlanta and Chicago this year.  However, there have been a couple of times where all four judges have said yes and I'm sitting there scratching my head trying to figure out why.

It's like when I watched the Maria and Joseph auditions again on BBC America.  There were some people who got through to Maria and Joseph school that made me scratch my head and wonder what they were thinking.  Of course, with Maria, Joseph and Nancy, I did not scratch my head when I saw the final outcome.  The winners of those three were the right people, in my opinion.  Although with Nancy I was torn between Jodie and Jessie for quite a while until I felt Jessie was starting to crumble under the pressure.  Again, just my opinion.

There have been quite a few times when the American Idol winner has been crowned and I have been wondering what America was thinking.  The ones I have scratched my head about have also had bad record sales, so maybe I do have some clue about what I'm talking about.

Okay, end rant.
Facebook is doing this thing this week to change your profile picture to a fictional character that you think best represents your personality.  Which leads to the question, which fictional character would best represent me.  Or any of you guys on my f-list.  This could take some pondering.


Luke and Noah are supposed to be on today and I cant' watch.  OH the humaniity!

You can't tell I'm bored, can you?


Writer's Block: Rotten tomatoes

What is the worst movie you've ever seen? Did you sit through it or walk out? What made it so dreadful?

I have 2 answers for that.  Dumb and Dumber is the only movie I've every walked out of.  It just repulsed me in every way.  

I wanted to walk out of Natural Born Killers. The only reason I stuck through that was because of Robert Downey Jr. But I couldn't stand that movie.  I kept thinking I should walk out anyway.
