What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

In the wee small hours of the morning

It’s the middle of the night. I can’t sleep. I haven’t posted in a while. So here I go:

  • As of yesterday, I am no longer a U.S. Census Bureau census taker. It’s OK, though. I always knew the job was temporary. But it was fun — and the pay was very good — while it lasted. However, I’m sworn — yes, I took an oath — not to ever tell what personal information I collected from whom. Under penalty of up to $250,000 in fines or five years in jail. (Not that I can remember the exact details anyway.) So there goes my book/short story ideas about census-taking or the most interesting people on my blocks.
  • This afternoon, I go to my dentist to get a crown for my broken tooth. I know what to expect; I’ve had a crown done once before. And I have a small mouth (yes, physically) so dental work for me consists of the dentist saying “open wider, please.”
  • This evening, I’m supposed to meet friends for dinner at a Japanese steakhouse. Which normally I would find fun and delicious. But with a hours-new dental crown? I believe I’ll just watch the chef while I carefully sip the miso soup.
  • Switching subjects to entertainment, I found out yesterday one of my favorite entertainers had emergency surgery yesterday. Get well soon, Bono.
  • Also in entertainment, 24’s finale is Monday night. I’m going to have to watch it online or on DVD, because I will be away from home Monday night. I’ll always miss Jack Bauer. And Chloe.

Well, now I’m tired again. Time for me to post this and go back to sleep. Good night (or good morning).
