You Are Not A Winner

I did have all the numbers! On 5 separate games! Oh! Well I knew I was a loser when it was announced that the 3 winning tickets where not sold in my state.

I guess it's back to being my poor self again! @o@

Lottery Fantasy

When my dad gets home he tells me he might have accidentally played the wrong lottery slip. I'm upset and confused. Didn't this happen as a tv show plot? I'm ruling out Martin, Hangin' With Mr. Cooper, and The Simpsons. I think it was a show with live people and not a cartoon.

At least my family didn't get lottery crazy and try to read a copy of "The Lottery" for lottery tips and ignore our sick dog. We don't have a dog.

Then I watched that 20/20 special on the lottery and fantasized about what I would buy. At the end of the show the numbers were read. I thought I had some of the winning numbers. I just hoped for the best.

Annie's Cinnamon Roll Bunny O's Cereal

I tried some Annie's Cinnamon Roll Bunny O's Cereal. It was very good and smelled very sweet. It took some getting use to because I'm so use to preservatives in my cereal. You know eating the common stuff like Cocoa Pebbles.

After I ate some I thought it would taste really good with some fake maple syrup just to taste. It was great, but unhealthy. I could be arrested for eating something like that.

Then I remembered my neighbor ate something similar. This was back in '93. Anyway he would put Cheerios in a bowl (I forget if it was plain or Hunny Nut) and milk and heat it in the microwave and then top with honey or maple syrup. Or did he top the cereal first heat it and then add the milk? I'm getting old and forget!

Maybe Robots Could Help

I had to go see my worker again. To prevent myself from falling asleep waiting. I was listening to some Garbage.

I got a flier from them to be a poll worker. The people who work the polls are idiots!

This happened to me before I was trying to vote after I had moved to a new city in the same county. They told me to go back to the city I use to live in to vote. It would be really absurd if somebody came from another state. This would be their conversation.

Voter: I'm here to vote please give me a provincial ballot.

Poll Worker:
Where did you live?

Salem, Maine

Poll Worker:
Well you can't vote here. You need to go back to Maine and vote.

But I moved to California.

Poll Worker: (sighs) Fine! (unenthusiastically) Take this.

It would be a great job for me! I can be an incompetent jerk!

They gave me a flier for a job fair, but I'm not going to that. Like I said before they are depressing, and there is most likely nothing for me. They are usually cluttered with staffing agencies anyway.

They told me to use snagajob. That website sucks! Plus they sold my info to those telemarketers. I'm going to try and tell everybody I can not to use that website; unless they want their info sold.

They are trying to put a bandage on a broken leg. They think they are helping, but it's really doing nothing.

They want me to get training in something like a nurse. I can't be a nurse! You gotta learn a lot of stuff and memorize anatomy. And all the body parts have strange names an ear is not an ear. I think it has some Latin name that they refer to it. I remember they taught that class at my high school, and a lot of the people who took it had a hard time memorizing all the terms. It'd probably be like that Family Guy where they all vomit. The thing I really don't want to happen to me is that I train for some career and then there is nobody hiring in that field. That happened to my dad.

They also said for me to be a live in care worker. I can't lift people. They are heavy! I could possibly lift a medium sized dog. Too bad we can't use robots like they do in Japan to lift people. They said to ask people I know for jobs or leads. If I knew people I would probably have a job by now.

It's like what the guidance counselor told me a few years ago about being a nurse. I'm smart enough to know I don't have the personality for that.

I loathe going there! Every time I go it just makes me more angry!

I Learned it on Soul Train

It was funny when I was watching Soul Train. It was a 90s episode. My mom said one of the dancers danced like me. I thought I told her that I just saw the saw the dance moves on the show and just copied them. I copied them poorly. I use to be very good at the butterfly, but I can't dance it anymore it hurts my knees, and knee pain makes me feel old.

Might Possibly be a Winner

I'm upset because I entered a legitimate contest and the winners were supposed to be announced today on tv. And they weren't! I guess I'll wait until next week. Maybe they forgot.

Sneaky Snake!

The people are real sneaky snakes! They mumble on the phone so people can't get their names while looking for jobs.

I should shout it to people like that character from Madtv played by
Michael Mcdonald (not the singer)
Like this skit:

This is what I hear "Hello thisistardcafepleplspeaking". What they are sneakily saying is "Hello this is The Red cafe Penelope speaking". When you ask them to repeat what they said they get mad and/or hang up.

Although this is a good tip when I get a job because I'll do the same fucking thing. I'm going to protect the job I have once I get one. I'll even go as far to defend the company on the internet.

Lies, Lies, Using Lies as Alibis

The 30 Rock joke about Krang was so funny! And I'm not even a TMNT fan! When they said that line I was laughing so hard. I read a blog where the blogger use to blog about Krang so much. (not my blog)

Why do I hate Hazel so much? Am I suppose to? She kind of looks like some girl I went to high school with. (The girl just looked like her I did not go to school with Kristen Schaal) I didn't realize the actress who plays Hazel also does the voice of Louise from Bob's Burgers. Louise is my favorite character.

The part where Kenneth says he lies to himself was also really funny. Kenneth:“I lie to myself every morning when I wake up. I don’t know how much longer I can do it.”
It sounds like something I'd tell myself. While wearing a
scowl or sour look on my face.

The Sandwich Experiment

I made the Cordon Bleu sandwich. I wanted to make it like a mix of Denny's sandwich and the one Abry's use to sell. I think they still sell it; just not in my area.

Here's what I used sourdough bread, Swiss cheese, ham lunch meat, and frozen breaded chicken patties.

Essentially I just made them like a grilled cheese sandwich. I first cooked the chicken patties before I put them in the sandwich. Then I just made the sandwich like a grilled cheese. Here's the order in which I put it together in case anybody wants to know. Starting from top to bottom; bread, cheese, chicken patty, ham, other slice of bread.

I used Dijon mustard as a dipping sauce. I'm going to try and make another version on a bun like Arby's.

Colton leaving Survivor was great! Seriously I thought he would have gone far. Christina was dumb to comfort him. I would have made fun of his ass. Especially if I was treated the way she was. They (Colton and Alicia) were so mean to her I was screaming at the tv.

People wrote some pretty mean stuff about him online. I'd hate to think what people would say about me if I was on Survivor. They probably want me to drown in the ocean or something like that.

But like I've said before I could not be on the show for a lot of reasons. I can't swim, I have skeletons in the closet, and I don't think I could handle the stinkyness. Nobody is bathing including yourself.

I Still Don't Work Here

I ate a twice baked potato at the Hometown Buffet I put extra bacon and cheese on it. It was so good and fatty.

When you go there at lunch they have more lunch foods. They had stuff like corn dogs and slider burgers. I did come up with a new drink; I mixed cherry Coke with Coke and cherry Icee. It was sweet and cold.

There were some obnoxious girls at the craft store they were taking up the whole small aisle and just being really loud.

At the grocery store I wore the wrong color shirt because a really old lady mistook me for an employee. I felt like Harry in the 3rd Rock from the Sun episode "Superstitious Dick" where Harry wears the wrong color shirt at the hardware store and is mistaken for an employee. That's happened to me a few times before one time at a Walgreen's I was mistaken for an employee. The worst thing was that I wasn't even wearing anything like what the employees wear there. Maybe I should go back to cartoon shirts. You'd have to pretty out of it to think somebody in a Sailor Moon shirt works at a supermarket and is on duty.

Definitely make Another Sandwich

I tried the Cordon bleu sandwich at Denny's and I didn't like it. they used breaded chicken strips instead of a patty. It was pretty dry. Plus the order of the ingredients in the sandwich was chicken strips, ham and cheese. I'm going to figure out a way to make a better version at home. That is a challenge I'm going to take. Maybe I'll make a hybrid of the Denny's sandwich and the old Cordon bleu they use to sell at Arby's.

I had this strange dream about Shirley. We were talking and I told her I was going to buy "Not Your Kind of People" and she was like "Ok." but in a nonchalant way.

Is it just me or does Christian Borle from Smash look Like John Linnell from They Might be Giants? I was wondering if other people my age who don't follow the theater know Bernadette Peters for anything more than voicing Rita the cartoon cat from Animaniacs?

Corned Beef and Ramune

I did a lot of non-Irish things like watch anime and drink Japanese soda. Well it was a green colored soda. I drank this.

I had this really strange dream about working at a restaurant. It was a mom and pop place. I was like a cashier. A bun ch of people kept coming up to me while I was taking their money as the cashier and saying "This place sucks!" I'd snap back; "Well, you suck too!". I forget if I got fired in the dream or if I had to work in another place in the restaurant.

I did some Irish things like listen to some songs by The Cranberries. I haven't heard "Salvation" in a while. I forgot how much I liked it. I ate my corned beef too.

Soured on this Place

I went back to the staffing agency there was nobody else there. At first I thought I was the victim of a prank or something. Or it was some kind of hazing ritual for new people who sign up for the agency. Until somebody who works there tells me that I got an automated message and there is no need for me to even be there. I was getting more soured my the minute.

People are right the chorus of "Blood for Poppies" does get stuck in your head. It was stuck in my head when I was cooking. That happens to me a lot. Songs that are stuck in my head come out when I'm cooking food.

My dad is such a helicopter! Seriously I'd be better off if I was parented by an actual helicopter! At least that is inanimate. Just let me do a job search and don't FUCKING MEDDLE!

It's like Goat Cheese

I went to a staffing agency. Was sort of soured on the idea of it since I read all this bad stuff online about staffing agencies like they post fake job ads and they take people's information.

But I thought I should treat it like goat cheese, and try it first before I see if I like it or don't. I say about being open minded. I wrote about it before.

They were showing a safety video in Spanish. I was hoping there would be some nightmare fuel or some silly safety stuff. But there wasn't even any of that. I couldn't date the video. I want to say anywhere between 1995-2000.

The computer had a broken monitor. They said I could use it. They supplemented the broken monitor by using a projector. But they wanted me to put in personal information. I didn't want to sound like a bitch there, but I was not going to do that. Let some other idiot do that.

The person before me took a long time using the working computer for the personality test, but I know how to ace it now. I got a perfect score. Tip: just don't make yourself look like a psychopath.

After leaving there I was pretty soured.

I got an automated call from them. Telling me to come in at 9AM.

Then I was thinking about what I would buy with my first paycheck. I think some silly thing like a vintage toy.

I finally heard all of "Blood for Poppies". I missed it on the radio though. :( But I did get the free download from Garbage. ^-^ I put it on my MP3 player.

Worst Job Fair Ever!

My dad made me go to a job fair to get more jobs for my list. On the way over there I heard "Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow" by The Monkees on the radio.

This lady comes out; a fellow job seeker; tells us that the job fair has been moved. The lady was blond and looked ditzy. My dad was telling her something about the streets and the freeway. She gave him a look like she had no idea what he was talking about. I don't know why he says things like that to random people. Not that all blonds are ditzy though.

Signs you know you at a bad job fair. It got moved to another location and they didn't tell you.

That was it I'm not going to any job fair anymore with my dad. The last one I went to was bad, but this was a disaster! I don't mean on the part of the people hosting. Although that was bad in its own right. He just gets too annoyed with everything. He can be annoyed BY HIMSELF!

My dad signed up for it with a fake phone number; area code 666-6666 because he's evil. I gave a fake one too, but I just made up numbers. Why do they need your phone number anyway?

There wasn't really anything good there. Mostly staffing agencies. Which I'm still skeptical of. But I asked one place if they would take me with no experience and they said they would. I don't care if I gotta meet those job quotas. The thing was a bust anyway. I'm through with job fairs! Maybe I'll go to one if they happen to be at a school I'm attending if I got back to school again, but nothing else. To quote Comic Book Guy: "Worst Job Fair Ever!"

I saw an old episode of Soul train from 1993, and got all nostalgic. They danced to "Rump Shaker" in that episode. I love that song! All the old 90s fashion; chokers, crushed velvet dresses, booty shorts, boots, sports jackets and jerseys and more. Maybe if I watch more 90s episodes I'll take notes on it for my comic. (for the fashion)

Fashionably Bored

That Fashion Star show was like watching one big commercial. Oscar is annoying. And it got pretty boring. I watched the whole show, but I just wasted 90 minutes of my time. I spent most of the time reading catalogs while the show was on.

And what qualifies Nicole Ritchie to be a judge? If I had a show about cooking (that was not on an NBC owned network) I'd have Conan O'Brien as a judge because he eats food.

Daddy Still Can't Type

So my dad found out that he needs to type 35 WPM. Good Luck with that. He says that he will take typing tests online. Which will suck. It will be like when tried to learn Excel. A bunch of screaming and expecting me to know it. The worst part was the stuff he was doing at home wasn't even his FUCKING HOMEWORK! HE WAS JUST PRACTICING! WHAT THE FUCK!!!!????

I AM NOT HELPING HIM!!!! He is on his own! I'm back to frozen hamburgers eaten over the sink and leaving for "quiet time".

I type 26 WPM which is a little below average. In the job class I took my teacher said the average was 30. I took a test online, and that's that it told me.

There is no way my dad is even close to that. His typing has improved, but not that much. Is typing is so bad I even wrote a parody song about it.

Distracting News Ticker

I don't know was going on with KNBC but they had a distracting news ticker. What the HELL!? I don't remember seeing that last week. Please get rid of it!

There was another J-Pop America Fun Time Now skit. I was hoping that Lindasy Lohan was going to do one, but her Housewives of Disney was funny. I liked the part about the hat. Too bad Ariel wasn't featured, or maybe not. Since she is my favorite princess. It would have been a funny joke if she like cooked Flounder or something.

Well at least J-Pop America Fun Time Now had a boy guest. The last 2 guests were female. (The last 2 were played by Anna Faris and Katy Perry) It was funny when they kept saying they had Japanese ancestors. I did better on my Japanese tests than they did. I read Japanese poorly and have a hard time writing hiragana. I've been trying to practice my Japanese recently. It might help me get a job. I felt the mumbling was as or more annoying that the news ticker. I could barely hear him talk. Love the rasta look! LOL! I wonder what that show was called "Rasta Now!"?

"It's art if I say it is"

I was thinking about how much people hate anime and manga style drawings, and how to them they all look the same. I think a lot of people hate that like everybody does it. I felt my art felt contrived. Maybe I'm any kind of artist. I never said I was really good at it. Just intermediate at best. (I'm being generous with myself)

I was thinking of hanging up the pencils.

I will be like Marcel Duchamp "It's art if I say it is." If you are up on your art history you know who he is.

Maybe I can use this to my advantage. (I can't say how yet. I'll see how everything plays out.)

I was supposed to get a call back from the store I interviewed at, but I didn't get one like I thought so. :(

Bounce with Me

We got Bounce TV in LA now on KCOP's subchannel 13-2. I haven't watched much only classic Soul Train.

Lookin' 4 Somethin'

I don't get why I keep getting emails for insurance sales jobs. I'm totally unqualified for that. I don't even have a license. I think they are like $250. Anyway I don't want to get into insurance sales. A license costs more than a Guard Card. I'm still wondering who this insurance will be sold to? Most people can't afford it. This is for life insurance.

Well I don't want what happened to my dad in the 80s happen to me. Back then he took classes to sell insurance because some "company" wanted to hire him. He needed "quiet time" back then and would send my mom and I off to the mall. (this explains my affinity for malls) Anyway by the time he got all his qualifications the "company" was closed and he stayed at his old job. This is also why when my dad does something really hard or needs a lot of concentration at home now I would voluntarily leave. (he put it in my head way back when)

I have a very simple and plain resume maybe it's because I'm simple and plain. Or just simple minded, but not too much.

While I was stressing out about the interview I was writing this down. "Brainstorm better job hunting persona name..." I also felt like I have to fight a battle to get a job. A battle against all those other people. I was going to use the word "war", but I thought it was insensitive to people who really fought in wars. I thought I'd use the word "strategery". I was also thinking about how much I like the song "Laugh". It's a goofy little song.

I can't listen to "I Wanna Be Free" anymore. It makes me too sad. I can't listen to Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt". It reminds me of Eddie Guerrero. I'm fine with the NIN version. I reminds me of the small span of time I was in yearbook. It was less than a month. But that is another story.

I also met a fellow jobseeker there who introduced himself to me. I hope he didn't think I was writing about him. I was writing about songs and how writing and drawing de-stresses me.

They had us stand in line to wait to be interviewed. It was funny because I was the 4th person in line! It was good I was high up in the line because there was only one person interviewing. It brought back memories of the Halloween store. The interviewer didn't look like any character from The Office.

I had seen a turkey hunting game at the mall on Friday and today I had to try it out. It's called Turkey Hunting USA. It looks like this. I don't condone hunting, but I thought it was a different video game theme besides the usual arcade game themes like racing, fighting games, games based on movies and DDR.

As I'm getting ready to leave some older gangster looking lady comes up to me and asks where some store is. I tell her where the directory is and she tells me she can't read. :/ :O Anyway I eventually found the store by reading the sign on it. (it was hard too because she was looking for a phone store and there are so many of those in the mall now) Maybe she should just memorize logos. That's how I use to find my favorite stores at the mall before I could read. Eventually I went to the mall so many times I just memorized their location.

Star Collector

Rodney did a pretty good show for Davy. He played some good songs. Some of my favorites like "Star Collector". He mostly played songs that Davy sang lead on. He also played some Monkees covers like covers of "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday".

His playlist is here.

Who can forget his work in the series as Ludlow?

Sunday, March 4, 2012


I had to take a break from the Monkees marathon. I fell asleep watching it and had strange dreams.

I took a break to watch Detective Conan and some of the Lakers' game.

That GCB show really makes no sense are people really like that after high school? If they are I should say away from the town I went to high school in even though I still live in the same valley metro suburb region. I even have the same area code.

I don't get it though. All those people decided to stay in that wealthy suburb of Dallas? They didn't move to another state or country especially if they are rich. It's not like poor people who live in the same neighborhood because they are too poor to move.

Me not liking this show is funny since I usually like shows about rich people.

Saturday's Child

After watching part of the Monkees marathon honoring the memory of Davy Jones. I remembered why I liked it so much as a kids and why I still like it now. Back when I was a small girl and I use to watch the show. I was so young I couldn't read yet. I just liked the physical comedy and the romps. Back then my favorite episode was "The Case of the Missing Monkee". When I re-watched the show as an adult I could get all the jokes I missed back then like references to LBJ and jokes about being unemployed. I think my favorite episode now is "Monkee Versus Machine". But I mentioned that before.

Nail Polish Personality

At some places when you ask for their name unless it's on a name tag or something. The worker(s) give you that "Oh Shit!" face. The only reason I do it is because I'm required to. It's part of the assignment. Here is all the required information I have to fill out : date, business address, name of person that you spoke to, and business phone number.

I've noticed that the bigger more established stores like Express are more forgiving. They don't seem as snobby/scared. Maybe because some of those company's have a referral section on the applications

I was dawdling in the Best Buy. I was looking to see if all the Monkees CDs were gone. Well after a singer dies their CD/single sales rise. Sad but true fact. They did have an ample selection of box sets of the tv series season 1 and 2. On a side note there was an ample selection of Whitney Houston CDs.

I've narrowed down my job hunter persona names I'm thinking either "4" which is a reference to the Amazoness Quartet and the number 4 being bad luck in Eastern culture. Plus 1+3=4 like western 13.

My other name idea was "pink eye" since pink eye is something people don't want and avoid it. Like annoying job seekers going door to door who ask questions and take names. (That sounds like a wresting promo) It's a reference to the Amazon Trio. All the members of the trio have a name with eye in it. There is Fisheye, Tiger's Eye, and Hawk's Eye. It also made a reference to South Park, but it wasn't intentional. And possibly Pepper Ann too.

Maybe I should keep working on it. :/

I was in the sephora store trying out nail polish. I think the glitter and the black look great. The orange and green aren't for me. They are too bright, but they are trendy. That glitter is great! It reminds me of the glitter nail polish I wore in junior high. They are the ones in this ad. I never bought them through the ad. I use to find them at the Long's Drugs. I like this ad because it says about the personality type/mood. My mood is "Party". That is totally me! LOL! I use to wear jet multi-glitter. There was so much glitter in that old color. The black was really nice too. It's an iridescent black. I've never seen that before without mixing custom colors.

Had a fun time watching somebody on the bus air drums and guitar. They were switching between drums and guitar or maybe it was and/or bass?

Job Security

After I thought about it I know what job I should get if I can get cheap training for it. Security. I can be a jerk and get paid for it. It could be like that Seinfeld episode the Maestro "Stop It! Stop It! Stop It!" I can confiscate stuff too like gum, markers, lipstick and wallets. (Almost had my wallet taken by security for no reason. It didn't even have a chain on it.) I think a lot of security issues could be solved if people were told beforehand what they can and cannot bring to places. I don't mean like no brainer stuff like handguns. More like if a place doesn't allow gum or lipstick. Since these are common items that many people might have on them. Seriously I went to a place where one security guard took his job way too seriously, and another who played with his phone all day and smoked outside. They worked together. I guess they were the yin and yang of security.

I think another problem can be solved by banning purses from a lot of places and telling people beforehand that they are banned. I don't like purses. I think they get in the way and the styles are always changing. Plus I didn't start using a purse until I was 18 by choice. I find them so bothersome.

Or maybe I need to learn Mandarin. A lot of the jobs I see require that and English. Glee was wrong.

The thing is I just so frustrated about hearing what I can't do or why I'm the WRONG person for the job. Hell just lowball me now! But not for free.

You know you are in trouble when a job ad has the word "fun" in it. ex: "LOOKING FOR FUN PEOPLE!!!!!!" "A FUN SALES JOB!!!!!!!!" "*****NEED FUN AWESOME PEOPLE FIRED THE BORING PEOPLE*****" "NEED A FUN ROCKSTAR PERSON!!!!!!". What does "fun rockstar person even mean?"

You know I was thinking that moving out on a leap year in February isn't a bad idea. You get an extra day. February is still the shortest month.

If you saw the most recent episode of The Office and saw Jim spinning a sign. I spin signs like Jim. XD LOL!
