The High End Of Low

I'm getting old and lazy as fuck 'cause I ordered The High End Of Low, deluxe edition cd, from Amazon this morning instead of rushing downtown to the record store (HMV) on the day Manson's new opus will be hitting the shelves as I usually do.  Oh well... to Hell with tradition, I guess.  Perdoname, mi amor! 

Apparently, I should get this long awaited album and the two paperbacks I ordered along with it to qualify for 'free shipping', on May 26th.  It'll sure make a wonderful and oh-so timely birthday gift from me to me.  I prefer to think it's a gift from Manson.  Hell, yeah!

Manson's birthday gift to you., WOOT!

Happy soon b-day!

I've been out of a job for nearly a year and a half, and my unemployment insurance benefits have run out unexpectedly some three months ago. Long story short, I've had no income whatsoever since then and I am currently living off my meager and rapidly dwindling savings. I sure lack the moolah as well but dammit, life's too short and I need some sort of gratification like right fucking now!

On the bright side, I won't get billed until Amazon actually ships out my order. From then until I receive my credit card statement, that leaves me a whole month, maybe a little more, to come up with the money. So that's one financial obligation I should be able to handle without too much difficulty (all things being relative).

I really need to find me a new and hopefully well paying job asap. Wish me luck!

I hope things start looking up for you soon.
Just remember if you ever need to talk, I'm here.

Oups, I really should learn to mind my manners. I'm awfully late, Shauna, but I do want to thank you for the birthday greetings. Much appreciated.

I'm trying to stay away from MySpace these days because I caught some annoying virus about a month ago and I think I got it from that place (though I might be wrong about that). Turned out to be a powerful spyware that caused some so much havoc inside my computer I had to bring it to an IT technician for a complete overhaul. Cost me 50 bucks I didn't have to spare but hey, at least he was able to get rid of the spyware, re-install my softwares and make a complete back-up of all my files and folders, which means I didn't lose any of my priceless Manzin and Manson pics, yay! I don't know how long I can manage to avoid checking/updating my MySpace profile, though. I've got blogs, comments and messages to read. Curiosity will probably have the best of me, sooner or later. Perhaps nothing will come of it but for now I'm scared to go there. Oh well...

I can't believe I've been jobhunting for nearly three months in this damn recession from Hell. With any luck, I should get myself hired somewhere soon, that is before the end of June, please! July and August will mean vacation time, so it'll be dead quiet on the recruiting front. Every consellor I've talked to at personnel placement and staffing agencies tells me that things are bound to pick come September. Unfortunately, with my dwindling finances (I've had no income whatsoever since February and I've got mortgage, car and bills to pay) waiting until then and enjoying a summer of R&R in my backyard is a luxury I really don't have. I've been living off my meager savings since then and actively searching for a nice well-paying administrative assistant or executive secretary job in downtown Montreal where I can get to and from via community transit. The job-searching process is taking too damn long and I'm starting to have doubts and second guess myself. They say that looking for work is a job in itself but it sure is harder that doing the damn job and the wait is killing me. I've got a job interview in a big media company scheduled for next Wednesday afternoon. I so want to like this place and for these people to like me as well. Being that I've got the required qualifications and abilities to fill that position, I sure hope I meet their expectations and succeed to convince them that I'd be a wonderful asset for their organization. I just want to get this thing over with and start working asap. God knows I need the money and it'd take such a big load off my back. So yeah, wish me luck!
