Charlie Sheen...Trainwreck

Sadly I missed the special last night on Dateline or whatever program that was last night. Sorry, can't miss The Good Wife. I look forward to it every week, and frankly, I've had my own trainwreck last night, so I just could not sit through watching his. Normally I would have watched just for snicks and grins. If you know me and want the details, email me, I can't post it here.

Is it just me? Or does Charlie Sheen look like crap? Has he had a face lift? I dunno, he just doesn't look good..

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks this whole thing is getting blown out of proportion in the media for ratings. And really, was it necessary for CBS to pull the plug on the rest of the season? Yes, peoples jobs are at stake, people like you and me who don't make a million (or whatever he makes) per episode. People like camera men and grips and so on. Is it really necessary to punish them for his misdeeds? Why couldn't they just write him out of the remaining episodes and let the "little people" earn their living? This pulling the plug on the rest of the season reeks of a publicity stunt by CBS.

Yes, I realize he's done bad things. Yes, it's quite possible that he did make those horribly threatening remarks to one of the mothers of his children. Custody can get ugly, very ugly. Just ask me, I know first hand. And yes, I could see myself saying some of those things...if I had no self control. And believe, me I've got to have tons of self control in my situation.

Yes, drugs are bad people! They make people do bad things and make poor choices. But is it really necessary of the media to jump onto this trainwreck and do we have to hear about it every frickin' day? And why does the media act as though they are giving him the benefit of the doubt here and then they continue to show him running amok?

"Yes..I'm under a drug...It's called Charlie Sheen!" Seriously?

Time out...

Yes, I called a time out, just like my blog pally Lin did over at Duck and Wheel With String. You might ask...wtf is Lola doing calling a time out? She's unemployed for cryin' out loud!

I kind of felt that way, but I'm getting very overwhelmed. I am literally living, breathing 24/7 the job hunt and it was getting to me. I have rarely visited my blog pallies and I have not posted on my blog for days.

I am up daily at 6am or 6:30am and am on the computer either job hunting or doing online learning to update my skills. I am online until usually midnight. The only breaks I take are physically necessary (yes, job hunters have to use the bathroom too!) meals, interviews, appointments and grocery shopping. No one could ever accuse me of not trying. All I'm sayin'...

I went out with a friend to dinner Wednesday night. She remarked how I was literally jumping every time my phone rang.

Thursday I got a new phone. A phone I have been coveting a long time. I got a sweet deal on a local bookoo.com. Only $50 for a used Blackberry Curve 8310. I totally heart this phone! And yes, I took a break on Thursday to learn how to use it and set up my email accounts on it. I've gotten quite a few emails to schedule interviews, so I feel the need to have immediate access to my email. When I get more proficient at using it, I can even apply for jobs using. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to get Documents To Go to work, it's on my phone, but there is no icon on my screen. Once I figure that out, I can upload my resumes and a cover letter and apply directly from my phone. I've used Documents To Go before, when I had a Palm Pilot, so I know how to use it, it's just a matter of getting that silly icon on my screen. Anyway, the previous owner had the phone set to vibrate and emit a tone for every f'n email. I was literally jumping every minute. It was driving me crazy until I figured out how to shut that off for my email accounts where I don't get job alerts. As soon as I get a data cord I can get my calendar on my phone and I won't need to carry both my Blackberry and my Palm Pilot.

Saturday night was another break. A fellow unemployed friend and I took a break from job hunting (although we did discuss strategies) and had a Mexican fiesta. I made homemade fajitas and beans and rice. And...of course Margaritas! Arrriba! It was supposed to be a get drunk and let our cares and worries disappear. We ended up not getting drunk, but feeling no pain, which was perfect...no hangover! We turned on the tv while I cooked and found that
happened to be on the channel that the kids left on. I remarked how ironic that was, considering. Yes...we should consider ourselves damn lucky we aren't homeless and sleeping in a train station bathroom. We also learned a few things about persistence in our job hunt. All in all, it was a great night. We are both energized and today are back on the job hunt.
