the one with the dominics

Last night was the annual "costumes and tacos" night. It was awesome. A bunch of us dressed up as x-men, which was great, because I am trying to get as much use out of that Rogue costume as I can.

One of the great things about the costumes and tacos night is the creativity of the costumes. This year was not a disappointment.

When we showed up, we saw that one of our friends dressed up as Dominic, one of the high schoolers. Then, another Dominic showed up. I think by the end of the night, there were at least 6 Dominics walking around the party, each one bringing a unique set of the quintessential characteristics of the real Dom.

I'd love to see them all walking down the street or going out in public like that. :)

the woes of unemployment

Is it just me or does it seem like it's more difficult and stressful to live off of unemployment than to work for a living? I swear, I put just as much time into filling out the paperwork, handing out resumes, researching ANYONE that might have the budget to be hiring, vying for interviews, getting turned down because I either have too little experience or too much experience, and trying to get ahold of someone at the unemployment office every few weeks because they have once again messed up my check?

But, alas, the school districts are still not hiring, the economy is as bad as it has been, and there are no jobs in site that will pay what my unemployment does.

I wish I had a job.
