I have training tomorrow morning and the day after. I'm hoping that means I got the job?

Yesterday was Walter's birthday. He's 33 now, just like me. I've been teasing him about being old. His mom came over and had baked him a cake. I also made him a strawberry topped cheesecake. After all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, lol.

random update

I missed work this past Sunday. I was on my way in, without the kids this time, and made it as far as 5th and Erie before doubling over with severe stomach pain. I drove home and spent 2 hours locked in the bathroom. I wasn't much use the rest of the day.

Cally called me last night. At first, I was certain that she was calling to fire me, but she just wanted to go over my job description and to give me Roger's cell phone number so I can let him know when I am sick.

As far as being sick, I had to get a form filled out by my doctor for welfare. We had to reapply in order to keep our medical benefits and foodstamps. My doctor has officially put me down as disabled for the next year due to IBS.

The funny thing about all that is, I needed the form because I'll be a full-time student in the Fall, but I don't work at least 20 hours a week, which is required by welfare. Well, I work 3 hours a week right now. Today, Teri, Cherokee's former Head Start home visitor, called me about a job she had mentioned would be opening up at the Frankford playgroup this Fall. I had told her I was interested over a month ago, but didn't give it another thought. Well, she gave my info to the director, who called me today. I have an interview tomorrow at 2. Wish me luck.

Take the test!

I am mildly disturbed by this. It must be because I have kids and can work within a budget.

because I'm such a sheep

Analytical Thinker (AT)

Analytical Thinker The analytical thinker is a reserved, quiet person. He likes to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of his strongest motives. He wants to know what holds the world together deep down inside. He does not really need much more to be happy because he is a modest person. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. He loathes contradictions and illogicalness; with his sharp intellect, he quickly and comprehensively grasps patterns, principles and structures. He is particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for him, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing his considerations with others. The analytical thinker likes to work alone; his ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all other personality types. He is open for and interested in new information.

The analytical thinker has little interest in everyday concerns - he is always a little like an “absent-minded professor” whose home and workplace are chaotic and who only concerns himself with banalities such as bodily needs when it becomes absolutely unavoidable. The acknowledgment of his work by others does not play a great role for him; in general, he is quite independent of social relationships and very self-reliant. He therefore often gives others the impression that he is arrogant or snobby - especially because he does not hesitate to speak his mind with his often harsh (even if justified) criticism and his imperturbable self-confidence. Incompetent contemporaries do not have it easy with him. But whoever succeeds in winning his respect and interest has a witty and very intelligent person to talk to. A partner who amazes one with his excellent powers of observation and his very dry humor.

It takes some time before an analytical thinker makes friends, but then they are mostly friends for life. He only needs very few people around him. Their most important ability is to be a match for him and thus give him inspiration. Constant social obligations quickly get on his nerves; he needs a lot of time alone and often withdraws from others. His partner must respect this and understand that this is not due to the lack of affection. Once he has decided in favor of a person, the analytical thinker is a loyal and reliable partner. However, one cannot expect romance and effusive expressions of feelings from him and he will definitely forget his wedding anniversary. But he is always up to a night spent with stimulating discussions and a good glass of wine!

I'm bored and procrastinating like crazy

I have a paper on sociolinguistics due by midnight for an online Cultural Anthropology class. I don't want to write it. I'm gonna go watch the half-time show.

Ok, I'm back. I love Tom Petty. I really should finish the reading so I can write this paper. I have no idea how long it should be. The instructor didn't specify. Crap. I had my first real test today, too. I got a B on that and the quiz today. My first essay only got a C. I apparently only covered half the question, but it's hard to limit myself to 250-300 words and still make a point.

I'll have more to say later. Maybe after the new episode of House.

Any ideas how to help this woman?

I had missed this column when it first appeared, but saw the story covered in the Fishtown Spirit. I want to help out, but I don't really know what I can do. Any ideas on maybe a fund raiser or something? If this is the wrong community to ask, let me know, and I'll look elsewhere. Thanks!
