I get SO SICK of SPAM in my inbox. For real, man. I get more fucking spam than anyone really should. To this end, I’d like all 4 of you to go to Spam Cop right this minute and set up an anti-spam account. It’s free and it is the only way, I’m convinced, to stop the fucking spam. Spam Cop sends the offending server address to ORBS for tracking – and baby, those folks don’t screw around. If you get in their database, you get booted from more mail exchanges than you can count. Just remember, tho, to go to hotmail.com and set up a dummy account (email@example.com) for all those spam notices to go to, lest you end up getting the anti-spam stuff sent back to you! That sort of defeats the purpose. Besides, it’s best to associate a dummy account with the spam reports so the pissed off ISPs that have been put on notice can’t boot *you* from their domains. Yes, I’ve had it happen to me. I sent a spam report to the assholes at home.com and they reported me as a spammer and blocked my domain from their mail servers. Buttlickers! Trust me, get a dummy account. They got a decent free counter for yer pages over at usa.net, too. It’s called nedstat basic . I use it on many of my sites, but not this one, cuz it throws errors if I use the code. Anyway…
HR and marketing people are the most useless bunch of employees on the planet. These are the people who have no discernible talent for any task, but companies hire them because they think that they need to have Marketing and HR departments. I always find it amazing that HR people who by definition must deal with resumes every single day, are the ones who cannot open a single file that they are sent. They are so computer illiterate that they are baffled by any attachment that is not a Word 2000 document. Too funny. Marketing people are the same, but at least they are not required to deal with attachments and such as a part of their job! And let’s not even get into Recruiters and temp agencies. These people are such losers that they (with a straight face) expect you to find candidates for jobs for them, cuz they have absolutely no clue about what they are hiring for in the first place. Total morons, no sense of propriety at all. Especially ThinkJobs! Those people are not only stupid and rude, but they have illusions of grandeur on top of all that. They are such jerks that they had to change the name of the company to get rid of the ill will they had bred! They used to be ATS and they sucked then, just like they suck now.
I am taking the aforementioned creativity class, you know. It’s all women except for Nick and about half of them are pretty fucked up. Lots of eating disorders and self esteem issues. I don’t really care for the class itself, but I am enjoying the ‘homework’ and the journalling. It does take away from here, IMHO, but I think I can keep up both. It’s not that I dislike anyone in the class (I truly do NOT) but I feel that I’m waaaay too normal (read: happy) to hang out with some of them. And I don’t feel creatively blocked. I have been blocked for most of my life, but all that changed when I met Nicholas and my second chakra just blew right open. I am in this class for several reasons, but not for blocked-ness. I am in it to see what others do for fun, to see what may pop out of *me*, to see if it helps Nicholas get past his block and just for plain old fun. I have no problems doing any of the stuff and I take Artist Dates all the time, so that’s nothing new, either. When I go shopping for food, or clothes or whatever, it’s an outing for my child. She loves to shop! I have lots of free time, so I can do what I want, when I want. This freedom has allowed me to explore my creative child and let her ‘out’ to run rampant whenever. I think this is part of the problem for Nicholas. Being trapped in a 40 hour work week really cramps the style of one’s creative child and finding time to play is hard. It is a challenge for me to give him time alone at night, when all I want to do is hang out with him, but it has to happen and it will. He’s doing his thing tonite, actually.
I have had a most abundant couple of weeks! We’ve done the work for Wolfbrook and I’ve been busy with support calls. We sold 2, yes, 2 Powerbooks this week and Nicholas got a $1.75 per hour raise, which translates to $280 extra a month. I am blown away by and grateful for such wonderful abundance! Note to Universe: thanks and send more!!
Synchronicities are afoot this week as well. I was thinking about Allen and Dani for a couple of days when Allen showed up on my doorstep yesterday! It was very cool to see him after many months! And another small one is that we needed some wine glasses and they had them at the Dollar Store when I was there. I suppose all the money falling on my head right now could be a synchronicity, too, but I truly hope that it will continue on this way indefinitely, if not more so! I am ordering a CASE of those money candles! I bought one on a whim and started burning it in my good fortune feng shui corner and BAM! now money is coming from everywhere! Coincidence? I think not! heh heh
That’s it for now. Abundance is everywhere, you just have to accept it.
