jobs...huh. what are they good for?

money, i guess.
i talked to children's yesterday- they decided to offer the job to someone else.
i kindly said- oh ok, let me know if it doesn't work out.
then my interview that i had on tuesday night called me back yesterday and said the same.
i think i will just have to wait until i get home from traveling the world to find a job.
...or maybe ill be a rock star for a while.

polka people

doris's polka party on saturday was a success.
we feasted on not only delicious food but polka dancing.
here are some photos from the night.

happy birthday lil miss molly.

Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.

From the early early mornin' till the early early night
You can see Miss Molly rockin' at the house of blue lights.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.

Well, now momma, poppa told me: "Son, you better watch your step."
If I knew my momma, poppa, have to watch my dad myself.

Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like a ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.

I am going to the corner, gonna buy a diamond ring.
Would you pardon me if it's a nineteen carat golden thing.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like a ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.

Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like a ball.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like a ball.

would you care for a candy button?

...asked katie after lunch today at the dundee dell.

well katie, that was the funniest thing i heard all day- second to jimmys story about a blog fan that saw him out and said, 'hey jim- read your blog- welcome home.'

we enjoyed a fun day out in the sun at memorial park also.
being unemployed is fun.
too bad it can't last long for katie...
congrats on starting your new job tomorrow!!

i (heart) death cab for cutie/the postal service.

they are amazing.
probably one of my all time favorite bands, and i like a lot of bands.
listening to them just takes me to a different place.
reminds me of road trips and good friends.
the beats and flow of their songs just makes my heart happy.

i still remember the first death cab song i ever heard.
'photobooth' it was the summer of my sophmore year and i was living in dorm 634 i think.
i remember thinking, 'wow, these guys are good.'
years later i still think the same thing every time i hear them/the postal service.

...even penny likes them.
i put them on this morning and her motor started purring.
she has good taste what can i say.

photobooth by death cab for cutie

"I remember when the days were long
and the nights when the living room was on the lawn.
Constant quarreling the childish fits
and our clothes in a pile on the ottoman.
All the slander and double speak were only foolish attempts
to show you did not mean,
anything but the blatant proof was your lips touching mine in the photobooth.

And as the summers ending the cold air rush your hard heart away.
You were so condescending,
and this is all that's left
scraping paper to document.
I've packed a change of clothes and it's time to move on."

3rd times the charm hopefully...

i had my third interview with children's today.
it went really well.
i think the ladies liked me.
they said they had to wrap up some other interviews and then they had to call the second lady who interviewed me to tell her their thoughts in the next couple days.
and then she will make a decision.
such a long process.
but the job sounds awesome and right up my alley.
getting to do pr, advertising and event planning for a brand new program i would be heading would be amazing. working with doctors and safety councils to make our community safer sounds good to me.
keep your fingers crossed and i will keep you updated.

Welcome VIP

as some of you might know- there is an ugly blog war going on out there.
people saying mean things about people they don't know.
i no longer want people reading my heart that don't understand it.
so...i have made my blog by invitation only-
so welcome my v.i.p.s.
maybe someday we can live in blogger world again without passwords.
until then, enjoy.
