I'm on youtube! [Feb. 8th, 2007|03:43 pm]
Search Junior Idol Contestant #1. It's almost 2 whole minutes of me dancing like the school head chef to RESPECT. Also, the american idol knock-off thing was NOT my idea, i think it's soo old and overused it hurts. I mean, any knock-off, just the idea of a knock-off is overused. But whatever.

Hello beautifuls-
I'm leaving for Kenya in about 4 daysish, and from there I will only be able to communicate sporadically. If you want to be on a list of people who will get periodic group e-mails about my whereabouts and goingson, just let me know.
I love you.

ps- I'm going to be getting a kenyan cell phone, so don't call my old one starting on saturday, and I'll post the new one when I get it.

come to star island, bitches [Aug. 6th, 2006|03:10 pm]
drop everything and come live with me!
Hello everyone-
Is anyone sick of their job or living situation, and wants to come see me? The place Bill and I are working needs workers like whoa, and it's an amazing place to be a live. Recap: Star Island is a beautiful little island about 7 miles off of portsmouth, nh. about 100 college age and older younger adults live and work here. It is a hotel and everything, but only conferences are held here, no random vacationers. The conferences are for unitarian universalist groups.

You will make only $39.15 per day, but you will have no other expenses. All food, including endless snacks is taken care of, plus entertainment, etc. You could really spend no money at all if you wanted.

If you have travel expenses, I will give you $50 to get you here. Why? Because the administration is giving employees $50 bonuses for each new worker they recruit to work at least 6 days, but I would rather spend it on bringing you here than on ice cream and bullshit.

If you are interested, e-mail or call me. They need people immedicately, but wont take any new people after aug 22. You could stay for just a week, or several weeks, or whatever you want. Call 1-603-430-6272 or e-mail office@starisland.org. Calling is better. The website is

Also, if you want to just come hang out for anywhere from 1 day to the rest of the summer, like lena and erin coates will be doing soon, you can volunteer and live here for free, no strings attached.

please pay me fairly [Jun. 27th, 2006|06:12 pm]
[Current Location |a quagmire]
[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

So, I'm babysitting again, but I didn't make any promises beyond this week.

Basically a family I know fairly well asked if I would babysit their two kids for the summer (although there are often more kids around) for three or four 8-9 hour days per week. That averages out to be about 30 hours a week, but they only offered to pay $95/week. Meaning, my hourly wage is about $3/hour. What the FUCK? I told them I was waiting to hear back from another job (star island), but that I would think about it if I didn't get the other job. If I need to do that, I'm going to ask if they could pay me at LEAST minimum wage ($5.50/hr). I have a feeling they wont be able to afford it, but unfortunately, I need to be paid fairly. I mean, I would honestly love to help them out, but if I took that job I wouldn't have enough time to work another job to make up for the low pay. No can do.

My mom told me I'm being too picky about jobs, because I wont work at Star if Bill doesn't also work there, I wont babysit for $3/hour and I wont work at K-mart and similar big-box community-wreckers. I mean, f I work on star and Bill doesn't, I wont see him for almost 2 months and then only see him for a few days before leaving the country for 4 months. A few days in half a year. Awesome. I don't need to explain why I wont work almost full time for under $100/wk. Mulitnational corporations go against all of my principals, and I'm no sell-out. Besides, I have some other ideas, just not any offers. There are some people looking for waitresses...

creepy [Jun. 22nd, 2006|06:45 pm]
[mood |conflicted]

I had such a terrifying experience last night. Bill and I were driving home from Keene at about 1:30am when we saw a smashed up car on the side of the road, and we thought it almost looked like someone was in it.

We slowed down, tried to get a closer look and yelled 'hello? hello?' but no response came. I was too scared to look, but Bill was pretty sure he saw a man, his head limply lolling back in the driver's seat.

I called 911 for the second time this summer (there was an accident outside my house a month ago), and they said they would send someone. The thing is, I was so scared I only said 'I think there might be someone in the car', which meant that instead of sending an ambulance right away, they sent a cop, who didn't get there for a HALF HOUR.

Bill wanted to get out and check on the guy, but I was so scared I didn't want to, and I convinced him not to go, in case it was a dangerous situation or something, I don't know. You think you're going to be brave or clearheaded in these situations, but you just don't know until you've sat there, thinking there is a DEAD PERSON in the car behind you. I just didn't thing I had what it takes to be able to find a dead bodyand not fall apart, so instead I just sat and waited, and wondered, and imagined all of the horrible things that could have happened. What if he had been sitting there bleeding to death?

The police officer finally came, and thee was a person in there, but he was just passed out drunk. He had been driving drunk, run off the road (smashed all of his windows in the process) and then passed out. He was okay though.

I don't know. Maybe this experience will make me stronger for another time when I might need to be brave. I mean, what if I had just sat there while he bled to death because I was too scared to see a bloody body? Humans are way more complicated that any of us know.

happy [Jun. 20th, 2006|11:08 am]
[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

I had a happy night last night. My beloved, estranged, and steadfast girlfriends from home came and picked me up to go contra dancing last night. It was great. The place was packed, and it was a million degrees and sweaty in there.

We often go skinny-dipping after, but I had totally forgotten about it so it was a welcomed surprise. Basically all of the under-25 crew heads down to a private beach and gets naked. Woohoo!

Although, after we all got dressed and somebody turned their headlights on it became apparent that at least one gey-haired friend had tagged along...

don't mean to just complain but... [Jun. 16th, 2006|05:43 pm]
[mood |pleasedpleased]

... extraordinarily shitty things keep happening to me, and I can't help but post them.


recap on summer/spring:
Parents getting divorced
Moving out of childhood home
Denied the full time, well-paying job that I was promised not a month and a half before
Accepted to work as an underpaid childcare provider (6/hr for one kid 8/hr for two= underpaid)
Fired from babysitting job because I'm apparently too expensive.

Okay, granted I did sleep through my alarm the first time I was supposed to babysit, which I know is totally unacceptable, but I apologized a lot and the mom was all like 'oh no, don't worry about it, it wasn't a huge deal, no no, of course we'd love to still have you'. And she's been nothing but sweet ever since. Then today I had to get a ride home from the dad (who I had never met before today) and he laid me off. And he sounded like they had been talking about it, so it was kind of shitty of his wife to be all fake and sweet about it this morning. I almost wondered if they hadn't talked about it though, and that he had just been making shit up, since he had to ask me what my pay rate was before he payed me. I don't know. Probably they just can't afford me, and probably they had talked about it before. It's just... bullshit. I mean, he said it would be less than $6/hr for the two of them to go to daycare (though I shudder to wonder what kind of daycare is that cheap), but I can't, wont work for minimum wage to babysit.

I mean, when we agreed that I would babysit for them I said $8-10 per hour, and she said 'sure that sounds reasonable, just let me know what you're exact rate is when you come the first day' then I didn't how up the first day because of my alarm, and I felt so bad that I said 'why don't we do $6 per hour when I have just one of them and $8 per hour when I have both' Now I'm being fired cause I wont take both for $5 per hour. Sorry, no can do. Of course now I'm making $0/hr, but at least I have full-time availability to apply for other jobs. Fuck. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
