    I think that every job I've ever had started with a week of "what the heck have I gotten myself into?"

    Amy Lee - Congrats are getting a job. It will get better or a lot worse. If it gets a lot worse, then it isn't a good fit and you should move on.

    Gutmutter - Your best friend stole your husband and your garden! I think that's illegal in several states. I think it's called alienation of affection and flora. You might want to hire a lawyer.

    I've always thought that a regular exercise "program" makes the jobs...and people... easier to tolerate. Feels really good getting that frustration out! And the added benefit is that you'll look better than most of them!!

    And I wouldn't make the mistake of partying with your co-workers. That almost always turns out to be a bad idea, but sometimes we learn that waaay too late.

    Amy Lee: Congrats on the new job. I imagine there would be an adjustment period for sure.

    Oh please, misskitty... I'm really not. I've been an angry, angry woman all week. I'm finally pulling myself out of it, but I kick myself when I get that way because I do want to be a better person than that.
    Count your blessings!

    Maybe this inspiration from a Seinfeld I just watched will help:

    Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today. That means six more weeks of winter.
    Groundhog .org - the Official Site of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club
    Punxsutawney Phil Says Six More Weeks of Winter!

    Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/08 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

    Here Ye! Here Ye! Here Ye!

    On Gobbler's Knob on this fabulous Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2008
    Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators,
    Rose to the call of President Bill Cooper and greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.

    After casting a weathered eye toward thousands of his faithful followers,
    Phil consulted with President Cooper and directed him to the appropriate scroll, which proclaimed:

    "As I look around me, a bright sky I see, and a shadow beside me.
    Six more weeks of winter it will be!"

    Aw, crap! That means daytime high temperatures only in the 60s instead of 70s, and the chance of rain for six more weeks. Damn, damn, damn!!!

    I incited my own food poisoning today. Let me tell you, i got sick while out with my brother. Suddenly, while at the store, my palms start to itch. Soon, i feel it in my eyes, they're getting irritated and swollen. My lips start to plump up to the point where i look like a platypus, my nose hardened and felt like leather and then my face just got numb. My stomach started hurting and i went straight home. The way home was horrid, i lost all my energy in seconds and had to stop at a park to sit. My brother got scared and so did i, didnt want to pass out and leave him there. I eventually got enough strength to finish the walk home, when we got there, it was straight to my mom room. I told my brother to get me some lemon, a cup and some salt. I started drinking it and it settle my stomach down. Then, my mom got me seltzer water and it handled the rest. This is probably the last time i eat days old potato salad. And i love 'tato salad.
    Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me
    Infect me with your love and Fill me with your poison...

    Meowza! With all that itching and swelling I might have gone to emergency to get something to help you out! I'm glad you are feeling better though. Food poisoning can be very nasty.
