Sensing Some Paranormal Activity?

Finally...I can sit down and blog. It's 8 in the morning and I don't have to be at work until 11 so I'm sitting here with my mug of coffee, ready to unload everything that's been built up.

The night before last Jay and I went to a screening of the movie Paranormal Activity.


That movie was fuckin awesome.

Jay, a huge scary movie skeptic, was even spooked. It's got a very Blair Witch Project feel with the whole documentary idea, but it's ten times scarier.

The trailer doesn't even do it justice. Had you seen the first trailer for it, you wouldn't think it was worth watching. For once, the trailer doesn't spoil the movie, let me tell you. And the audience reactions you're gonna see are not simulated. People actually walked out the movie not because it sucked, but because they were so terrified they couldn't stand to watch it.

I can't stress this enough: GO SEE IT.

Development on the job: basically, I didn't get moved into anything clerical.

In fact, they told me they can't keep me in a position I don't want to be in, and on the spot I needed to decide whether I wanted to stay or go.


I chose to stay, only (and I do mean ONLY) because Jay asked me to, asked me to stick it out at least until I found another job. Because for once, money wasn't a good enough reason for me to stay at a job. For once, I'm ready to just pack my little cubicle of shit up, all of which would fit neatly into my purse, and chunk up the deuce. I'll worry about the money later.

And though Jay gracefully landed the AT&T gig, is passing training with flying colors, and is more than able to support me, I still want my own job and my own money. So I took his advice, and chose to wait it out.

On the managers' part, they did move me to the more productive side of the floor, so I'm surrounded by people who can help me get money. And I've been staying afloat, not necessarily doing the best, but I'm keeping my nose a centimeter above water level.

I'm thankful to have a job, and glad to have had this opportunity to find out that collections ISN'T for me. Now it's time to move on.

And last but not least, we have a new addition to the family: Charlie Murphy!

He's a 10 month old kitten. We had to drive over to Indiana to pick him up. He's the sweetest little thing, except at night when he decides to pounce on our feet as we're sleeping. And he's a spoiled BOLD little sucker too...will come right up to your carton of ice cream, stick his head inside, and commence eating like it's his.

I've told Jay we can't keep feeding him the table food though. His little digestive system can't handle all that. So we'll see how it goes.

Wow, it felt great getting all that off my chest. Now to get dressed for work :/...

i was just saying i haven't seen a good movie in a while, so i should try to see this... Quarantine got me shook a little, but this seems to be 20x crazier...

too bad about the clerical thing, but you still have A job, which is better than nothing...

Charlie Murphy for a kitten name... NICE! does it love being on your couch, cuz that would be classic? lol.

It IS 20x me it's worth the money to go see in theaters.

Yea I try to stay positive about having A job...I know a lot of people can't say that much...

And yes. Charlie Murphy loves the couch. He'll wait until someone moves and take their spot. Or he'll jump up and make a space for himself no matter what anyone says. It's hilarious!

I want ever so badly to see paranormal activity sadly it has left my area. Charlie Murphy, in my opinion is an awesome name for a cat. Since it is taken all I have left are Paul Mooney and Kitty.

I think paranormal activity is so impressive because it only cost about $15k to make. Lets wrap our mind around that for a second.

Awww demand it back! It was good.

I like Paul Mooney!!! It's just so much fun screaming "Noooooo, Charlie Murphyyyyy!!!" and watching him completely disregard whatever we say...classic...

The fact that Paranormal Activity was an indie film using all unknown actors really contributed to it. There wasn't a lot of scene change, which you see in Hollywood manufactured movies...again, it was awesome...
