Weighing In & Waiting Out

"The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese" - Philosoraptor

I apologize for my lack of updates! This has been a wacky week. On Monday & Tuesday I attended some employment seminar where I and some 19 other unemployed individuals met with counselors to discuss resume building, proper interview techniques and networking tips. I, for one, was very annoyed by the entire operation because it seemed to me as though most of my classmates were not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Now, I am not saying that I am in any way superior, I'm simply saying that I felt out of place. After two days and roughly 6 hours of torture, I was presented with a certificate and assigned a personal employment counselor. This was all for free and for that I very thankful. It is nice to know that there are organizations in this country that will assist low income families and all of us in need who are more than less off in society. The downside is that I now have to wait until next week to meet with the counselor and I must be patient as finding employment will take more time. *sigh*

With Monday & Tuesday out of the way, along rolled Wednesday, the day I had been waiting for all month! On Wednesday Apple Inc. rolled out the newest iPhone OS 3.0 update and I was thrilled! I downloaded that puppy as soon as it was available! What I love most about the new update is the landscape keyboard which is now available on the Messaging, Notes and Email apps. This was something that I ranted about not having when I was first given my iPhone because I have big thumbs. Aside from the keyboard fix, the new OS has tons of fun new features. Still waiting for that new iPhone release.

Thursday put me one day closer to the new iPhone 3GS that I cannot afford right now but for some reason I get very excited when new and fun technology updates roll out. On Thursday I decided that in order to lose weight I would have to do some major cutting back on carbs, so I am not allowing myself carbs after noon. It will be tough but hopefully it will teach me better control. I set my goal, now I must achieve it.

TGIF! The new iPhone 3GS came out today and guess who can't stop Tweeting about it? Spencer Pratt (from The Hills)

He Tweets the following:

" Tweeting is so much fun from my new iPhone 3g 32gb S - anyone who didn't know steve jobs did the "S" for Speidi On the new iPhone!"

"It's mine! "

Why am I irritated? Not because he has a 3GS but because he thinks he's "" did you catch Speidi's rediculous antics on "I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here"

Your thoughts?

and for more laughs...

More like "Celebutard" Spencer rapping = Lame

Moving right along, with the morning already completely gone, I feel as though I have wasted the day. What to do? This weekend is going to be lame for sure but I will manage. I will be doing some more writing later on after I have collected my thoughts. Look out for my Top Ten iPhone apps. Happy Friday everyone!


  1. And Happy Saturday to you. And those employment seminars are stupid. The problem is not that you don't know how to get a job. The problem is the economy the Bush crime family made sure they destroyed before they left Washington and the lack of job opportunities because employers are reluctant to take on new employees until the economy is stable again.

    You'll get something soon. I have faith in you- always have after all these years.

    On another note Gabe is waiting for a naughty post from you here LOL

  2. Oh and as far as Spenci goes- I hate people that brag about what they got. Some people can't afford that shit and can't even afford food in this country. Let him try working for minimum wage like many people do and then show off his high-end phone.
