Friday I will be unemployed

I need a nice, new, fresh Dayrunner.
I think that would solve all my problems right now.
I love lists.
I love making them.
and lining through an accomplishment.
If i had a new dayrunner,
i could write my list out...
I mean who wants to have a big ole list,
with NOTHING crossed out?
Not me.
If i had a dayrunner (a NEW one - the old one no longer motivates me)
I might even do a few things.
For example:

Send Christmas Cards
Make Chocolate Chip Gingerbread cookies w/Jude
Buy Quantam Leap Boxset for Sean's Stepfather
Wrap Presents
Mail a sympathy card to an old friend.
Make TWO birthday tags
Make a wedding album for a special friend.
Brush my teeth...Just kidding.
Organize the hall closet.
Put pictures IN the frames.
Write a LIST for the grocery store
Buy Sean's mom a Christmas present..but WHAT?
Get a Job. (Nope not kidding on this one..Tomorrow's my last day at this place)
Put laundry away.
Do the laundry before I put it away.
Take my prenatal vitamins.
Ask for a dayrunner for Christmas.

i have the best INTENTIONS of anyone i know.
If you could see inside my thoughts you would see a Christmas banner on my blog, you would see me mailing out 30+ christmas cards, you would see me wrapping my presents, and sipping hot chocolate, and baking all kinds of wonderful cookies and desserts to mail off...
but alas...i have done none of it.

i need a damn dayrunner.

My three year job has come to an end due to our company being bought out by another company.
Dont cry for me Argentina.
Its a blessing.
but if i don't get a job within the next couple of weeks.
Its Farewell Viva Las Vegas.

if you're unemployed you'll have a lot more time to do those things!! i don't even bother making lists anymore...they only discourage me because i'm not getting things done...i end up doing things that arent' even on the list!

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

I am SUCH a list person too!!! I get the biggest rush out of crossing things off my list! Yeah, I know I'm a nerd! ;-)

"brush my teeth" cracked me up.
You know that's the kind of stuff I write down in my planner every single day. It's usually never work related like "run monthly reports" or "submit my timesheet by 1pm" Then I get sick of reading what the hell I'm writing down (errands) that I quit using it for awhile. Actually, I just kinda of sit at work and pretend to be working really hard but really I'm not at all... just killing time organizing my life outside work. Work Sux

Chris-el-da said...
