The shpiel is very, very important.

I've decided to go a little deeper with my blog than I have before. Not necessarily today, but in the long run, I want to put more than my complaints, troubles, and daily happenings here. Why? I don't have a reason why. I don't even have a specific audience in mind, although I notice I tend to lean towards Mommy Blogs more than anything, even if I'm not a mommy.

My problem is that deeper means longer. Longer means no one is going to take the time to sit and read my mind. Maybe if I intersperse it with pictures and jokes, it won't seem so long...but it will still be long.

And I can't intersperse. My laptop was read it's last rites a few days ago and this desktop hates my very existence. It blames me for the virus that took it's brain.

I plead the 5th.

However, as I said, today is not necessarily a deep day. Today is a bread-making, laundry-folding, eat-the-last-corner-brownie-on-the-pretense-of-needing-to-wash-the-pan, celebrating kind of day.

Why do I need to celebrate? Let me explain. I got a phone call this morning from a place called Kirlin's Hallmark. Ah, yes, do you know of my adoration of Hallmarks in general? No? Mwaaahahaha! Why do I adore them? Let me list the reasons: Kristal, Amy, Anne, John, Julie, other Julie... ornaments, Christmas cards, Snoopy, WillowTree... I could go on and on. I loved working there, more than any place I've worked yet!

I start work at Kirlin's Hallmark tomorrow at 11:00 am, in a solid colored collared shirt, solid colored pants or skirt, and tennies, for minimum wage at about 25 hours a week.

You have nooo idea how happy I am. I am getting the heck out of Dodge, people, I am gone like a freight train, like the Seminoles around the Ocochobee... I am done staying here in this house day in and day out!! And I'll be making money for not being bored out of my mind.

Hi, welcome to Hallmark. What special person or occasion can I help you shop for today? Let me know if I can be of any help, get you a box, whatever you need, okay?

Sorry... I was practicing my shpiel.


  1. What a fun job! Being around journals, stickers, cards, stationery. Sigh. Would love that

  2. Sounds like fun! Hope you enjoy your first day at work. It sounds like you will since all your friends work there.

  3. wow u sound so much like me. i would love to work with hallmark too. and BBw is basically the same thing with the whole shpiel thing the way it sounds u would fit in easy.


So... tell me what you think. Good or bad, plus or minus, negative, positive, irrational...

Go for it :D
