Oh Great....

As read online today:

Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers pledged support in 1989 for a constitutional amendment banning abortions except when necessary to save the life of the mother, according to material given to the Senate on Tuesday.

As a candidate for the Dallas city council, Miers also signaled support for the overall agenda of Texans United for Life, agreeing that she would support legislation restricting abortions if the Supreme Court ruled that states could ban abortions and would participate in "pro-life rallies and special events." ...

New Job...I hope...

So, I just applied for a job at the Mesa Arts Center. The position is Associate Curator and I think this would be an amazing position. The job is comparible to what I do now, but more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff! I really hope to make it through (at least) the initial review process. I don't love their system because the applicant has to fill out on online application that doesn't have any room for a cover letter. I hate writing cover letters, but the cover letter is the only way to really hit the reviewer over the head and say, "hey, look at me and my qualifications...I'm perfect for this job!"

The HR department will review the applications and pass them on to the curator. I really hope I make it through stage 1, especially since I know the head curator (and used to work with her when I was an intern at Tempe Arts Center). I'll keep you posed. In the meantime, please send good work vibes my way!

I've Been Dissed!

Ever since Ann, Claudine, Kate and my cousin moved away last year, I have been missing my friends a lot. I have many friends who still live here, but it seems that every year people move away and I need to work on making new friends...not an easy thing to do.

Casey joined a kayaking listserv and suggested I look for a Yahoo group to join. I found a professional women in Arizona group and began emailing with several women. We got along okay, and decided to meet. I should have known it was too good to be true when one of the women suggested we meet at Fat Tuesday's. Now, I have nothing against Fat Tuesday's, but as most of you know I am not much of a drinker and should have seen this as a sign.

The women were nice enough, and would probably make great friends, but not to me. We had very little in common and just didn't feel that connection. As Claudine said, "It is kind of like dating; either you have that connection or you don't." I guess she is right.

I haven't really written them since we met, as I don't exactly know what to say. At the same time, my feelings are hurt because the haven't really written me either! Casey said, "Why do you care? You didn't really like them anyway?" That isn't the point! I wanted them to like me. Or, more to the point, I wanted a "love connection."

To my dear friends, Ann, Claudine, Kate and Michelle...I miss you.

Buying Kleenex Stock...

Damn it! I have this damn cold again! I got it the beginning of September and couldn't shake it for two weeks. As soon as I felt better, Casey got it. He just got over it and now I have it again. Maybe I should be quarantined as to not infect anyone else!
