There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

I hate it. I have considered a life of prostitution, but thats just redundant. I work in marketing /advertising. ha.

I have been juggling my finances for two months over a freelance check that didn't come and didn't come and didn't come. I got it? Couldn't cash it. Sent it back. Then it finally got here again and I had to mail it to the bank (which is in Texas). I sent it priority for Monday delivery. Checked this morning? Its not there. I know that the mail I sent to my parents got there Saturday and I mailed from the same place at the same time.

Something about this payment check that is freaking twilight zone. I can't figure it out. AND another payment I requested to be automatically deposited into my account? They sent me a check. Paper work correct on my end, I had the experts help me. Come ON!!!! AND I STILL have more going out than coming in after all that.

I am going to buy an outfit for my son and myself. We are going to become street entertainers. Look for our little "gig" on the streets of Santa Barbara. Don't throw eggs unless they are hard boiled. We will need them later for egg salad.

Help me SUZIE!!!!!


  1. suddenly, im hungry for an omelet...

  2. slyde: those are sunny side up. :giggles:

  3. ever thought about banking in the sunny side up state?

  4. its in the works, sis. :big grin:

  5. I'm right there with you. I work in accounting, 40 hours a week, and yet I still have to cut back on groceries whenever I want to buy shoes or rent a movie. It's depressing!

  6. musing: damn war on gas. :harumph:

    why do we let morons run the country?

  7. wow. that's some serious red tape and some serious aggravation for you! hoo-boy. i hate that kind of thing. why can't you deposit/cash the check in your state? why did it need to go to texas??? you've been in CA for 2 yrs or more now, right? i'm sure there is a good reason. not judging, just honestly curious. i swear!

  8. rebecca: I am a complete dolt. Seriously. I could win the dork centerfold spot for a good chunk of time. I mean even homer simpson could get knocked off that spot! :lol:

    Some is based on a lack of initiative on my part, but, this time? Mostly someone else was dropping the ball.

    OH WELL!~
