Employed Wildebeests from Laos

Three posts or so ago I was predicting that I wouldn't be working at my current job much longer. Sure enough, the contract my employer has with the hospital is being "renegotiated" at the end of March. However, I am on the short list of those the hospital is keeping on as a contractor, for possible hiring in July. How I pulled that out of my butt I have no idea. So now, if I do get offered a permanent position in July I have to decide whether I really want to continue living in NEPA. I think it will come down to how broke I am at that time.

A traveling friend sent me a package containing, amongst other things, about five pounds of coffee from Laos of all places! Now, if I make a cup of coffee for someone and they say the coffee's lousy I can say, "Yes, it is!"

Ah ha ha ha
Ah ha ha ha
You're not laughing.

The Wildebeest is up in arms again over something. She's so angry, and is shrieking into the phone so loudly, that she's almost unintelligible.

"BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! WATER! BLAH!"

And then, "BLAH! BLAH! SEE HOW YOU LIKE IT!!!!"

Then she slams the phone receiver down. It's a good thing she doesn't have a cordless unit with an off button. That would just be too anti-climatic. "BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! *beep*"

I hope she's not calling my landlord, George, back over here again in this weather. You all remember my landlord, George? The only made man in the mafia who got that way by killing his tenants so he wouldn't have to pay back their deposit money? Yeah, well, I don't see his hideous grey Lincoln anywhere in the street so maybe The Wildebeest resolved whatever it is that's stuck in her antlers her own self.

Film at eleven.

You should be PUNished for this paragraph, sir.
