I Have Nothing To Say

Posted By on October 6, 2008

I wish the reason I hadn’t blogged since last Wednesday night was because I was busy living the Fabulous Life of Kristabella. But sadly, right now the Fabulous Life of Kristabella involves pints of ice cream, an online job search and pajamas that double as acceptable clothes to leave the house in.

I had a busy week last week, applying for jobs. And then I went to watch my favorite niece (I only have one people, so don’t be thinking I’m playing favorites) traipse around in her dance class. Cute, huh?

I can’t believe she’s turning three on Sunday.

The other highlight was going to see Jersey Boys on Sunday. We ended up getting limited-view tickets for $25 on the day of the show which was fine for me. I couldn’t see part of the stage, but since I had seen the show before, I didn’t feel like I was missing much. And the new Frankie does a good job, even if his Jersey accent sounds more Russian. I just wished I hadn’t listened to the original cast recording over and over because I really wanted to sing along. Which most people don’t like. Go figure.

The best part of that was not seeing the show, but was the positive affirmation I got from a bathroom door in the train station. It told me that “The world is better with beautiful people like you in it.” And you know what bathroom door? You’re so right! Now if I could just shower and remember to brush my teeth every day, we’d be golden.

I figured I should do something memorable today so that I had something to write about. So I joined a wine club. Because nothing says unemployment like alcoholism! And now I get 2 bottles of wine a month! I don’t even have to leave the house. You know what that means? PANTS? WHO NEEDS PANTS? Not I!

I also applied for more jobs today. And have an interview set up on Wednesday at a Catholic organization. Which I only want to take because they work 37.5-hour work weeks and get like 30 vacation days. But then they will be talking about Jesus and and the blood of Christ all the time. And I’m pretty sure that won’t give me the right to drink wine at work. Even for “research” purposes.

My fear is that I can’t hold that job for more than three hours without rolling my eyes so far back into my head that they fall out. We’ll have to see how the interview goes. At least hopefully it will be blog fodder!

Finally, I have to go to bed now. Because I stupidly agreed to go to breakfast tomorrow morning with some friends/old co-workers. Which means I’ll be getting up before the sun for the first time in over a month. Oh 6 AM, I have been closer to you as a bed time when I’m up reading the Twilight books than I have been as a time to get up for the day. THE HUMANITY.

But this place’s refried beans are so worth it. Plus I can come home, all fat, full and happy, and take a nap.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll have something to say.

    I have always been a fan of yours – but this post really made me laugh OUT LOUD! The thought of you joining the wine club and having wine delivered to your home- and pants “Who needs pants? Not I” truly classic!! You made my day! Your niece is precious! 3 is such an adorable age. Seems like yesterday my lil niece was 3 – she is 8 now and we are still the best of buds. The best is yet to come for you personally and professionally!

  2. Mahnee says:

    You could always make conversation with the Catholic organization with the things that have come out of your niece’s mouth during mass…like EAT IT!!!!!

    The ton of vacation days sold me.

  3. I will admit to having a favorite niece. It is a real challenge for me to give them equal attention when all I want to do is cuddle with one of them.

    but if you didn’t need pants what on earth would you talk to Dooce about? 😉

    OMG, thanks for reminding me. I need to shower and put on clean pajamas. I have company coming today.

    Well, if you get the job with the Catholics, and the start talking about Jesus, you can always say, “Water into wine? Easy! Unemployment into wine? Priceless!”

  7. JRM says:

    How is Bacon handling the unemployment? Is he afraid of being eaten?

  8. Ree says:

    Does this wine club send bottles with corks or screw caps? Because corks = more exercise.

    just saying.

    While I admire your theory about the “wine club = no pants” hypothesis, unless they send you more than 2 bottles a month, I think you might need some clothes.

    That picture reminded me of my late daughter when she was at that age and a bit older too. I have it as a goal to make a shadow box of her shoes and her flute, not that the two are in common.

    A good friend of mine works for the Archdiocese of New Orleans and is not religious, but loves it. She gets random holidays off, they were super flexible when she was pregnant (you know, family first and all that jazz), and she’s never mentioned other pushy religious people. Good luck on the interview!

    Ah, she is adorable! And I was gonna email you about Friday–you sure you can’t make it, even after the birthday party????

  15. If you think of the wine club as professional development for your career as a sommelier, then you can write it off on your taxes!

    Yay, wine clubs! Also, your niece is soooo cute. And, aren’t the Catholics known for being pretty big drinkers? I mean, the Irish are at least….and there are lots of Irish Catholics out there…

  17. That picture right there is precisely why I must have girls.
    Also, I think you can totally get away with at least taste-testing the communal wine if you get that job!

    I realized the other day, if I was allowed to telecommute, I would never have to leave the apartment again. I can get, books, movies & magazines through rental services. Target, Safeway & CVS all deliver, and I bank electronically so I never need postage or checks. What a wonderful world.

    I hear ya about the clothes that double as pjs (or vice versa really). Nice re: wine club! We used to belong to one. We (read: I) like white better so though we now only have reds left. Hubs works for a Catholic college and they drink more at social events (more quantity wise and also more frequently) than the uber liberal college we worked for in Boston, so your drinking on the job could be more permissible than you imagine at the Catholic org 😉

    Dude, I want to join a wine club! You are my new hero!! Also, looking forward to hearing about the Catholic interview, haha. I was kind of raised Catholic … it’s a scary, scary thing.

    If I begged and said pretty please, would you join de-lurking day tomorrow. I have buttons and codes on my blog and you are surely free to make your own. Just asking…ok, begging!

  23. Janice says:

    It seems wrong to say how happy I was to read this post, but alas my life consists of candy corn, job searching, naps, and a multitude of Old Navy tank tops and sweats, so it was great to find another. I was laid off about two months ago and seem to be lost (I also have lupus and fibro and a multitude of health issues that lend towards my inability to make a life plan beyond the TLC and Bravo schedule. Oh and an MBA but lets ignore that little detail). I didn’t know 6 AM still existed, appreciate the wine club suggestion (alas my budget only leaves room for Trader Joes 2 buck chuck), and attended Catholic high school and I’d choose unemployment!

  24. Rhi says:

    Listen. I don’t get to drink wine at work and we have CASES of it. So, don’t get your hopes up.

    Ooooh, ice cream, pj’s and quality time w/ the world’s cutest ballarina – that doesn’t sound half bad! You’ll be back in the real world soon enough. Now that your she’s turning three, maybe you can enlist her to proof your emails before you hit send 😉
