"Black Rider, It's Jeff Winger. I know you've heard of me by now!"

Here are some things that have happened since I last blogged:
  • I lost my job
  • I went to Charleston for a wedding
  • I brought back two cases of Yuengling and all but four of the beers are gone
  • I've cleaned the entire condo
  • I turned 29
  • I don't know, some other stuff
I'm not sure why I haven't been blogging other than PURE LAZINESS but I realized today that it's been almost a month since I've blogged, which is like 12 months in Me Years. What I'm saying is, I used to blog several times a day WHAT HAPPENED? And now here I am talking about how I haven't been blogging so let's move on, shall we?

So, I lost my job, which is weird. Last week sort of just felt like vacation, probably because I would get up late, eat some chocolate pop-tarts and watch Doctor Who and The X-Files reruns until I decided I should probably shower and get dressed. You know, around 3 o'clock or so.

ANYWHO, this week I decided I should probably be somewhat productive, so I cleaned a different room of the condo every day. I KNOW. My life without work is super exciting. Not that it was much more exciting when I WAS working, but whatever. The cleaning is mostly done now, which means I have to concentrate mostly on job searching which, as I'm sure you're all aware, is absolutely soul crushing and I DON'T WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE, especially since I don't even know what to search for most of the time, as my old job made me want to jab sharp objects in my eyes at least two times a day.

I mean, it hasn't been that bad, really, not yet anyway. I'm sure that after a few weeks, I will be dying for more human contact. I think Joe's already getting sick of coming home to me acting like a COMPLETE PSYCHO, babbling at a speed greater than light (or...whatever) because the only person I had to talk to all day was Max, and he's not a great conversationalist. Not because he's a dog, but because he sleeps all day.

So here I am, blogging about nothing, which I'm going to try to do more of except maybe I'll try blogging about SOMETHING sometimes, who knows? There's a first time for everything, yeah? Yeah.

Anyway, if anyone hears of any job openings at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, please let me know.


  1. Oh shit! I'm sorry to hear about the job loss. It's too bad you don't live in LA, I could introduce you to my old boss - THE DIRECTOR OF WILLY WONKA.... I know. xo

  2. I'm pretty sure Willy Wonka only employs Oompa-Loompas.

  3. Sorry to hear about your job, but I'm sure it'll work out. I do that babbling thing to - stuck in the house so much that when a NEW PERSON!!! comes in, my thoughts bubble up and start jumping out at them, like some puppy who just keeps bouncing at your feet till you pat it. It drives some people in my family nuts, but what are you going to do: The walls haven't started talking back yet, so they're not very good company.

  4. Hey, Joe, is Jennie so short that she could pass for an Oompa-Loompa? You might want to check into that.

    Last week, our worksite was informed that one of our major contracts was just canceled, BOOM, just like that. It wasn't anything to do with us, it was a purely political decision. But it makes us all uneasy.

  5. Hi Jennie - sorry you lost your job. I was laid off a couple years ago from a company and it brings up a lot of complicated emotions. On the one hand, I was SO glad to get out of the most stressful work environment on the planet (not because the job was so hard but the constant threat of losing your job and watching clients leave one by one was terrible!). But, looking for a job is terrible on one's ego. Just remember that you are awesome and your next job will be much better.

  6. Yuengling. Best. Beer. Ever. I used to live in Morgantown, WV and would weekly make the drive across the PA border to get my fix. Ahhh...I miss that stuff.

  7. Hello my friend! I wish to say that this post is awesome, nice written and include almost all important infos. I’d like to see more posts like this
