filled with panda blood!
  Thu. 4/10/08 2:32am slugluv1313:

yum, nothing like a little NICK CAVE at 2am to lift one's spirits *sigh*

p. s. -- sorry to hear you are still feeling ill! have you tried "Thera Flu Night-time Sever Cold"? (it seems to help by knocking you out so you can get some rest and heal)
  Thu. 4/10/08 2:34am bwalker:

thanks for the tip! we gonna stuck with voodoo for now
  Thu. 4/10/08 2:45am emile:

just waking up in Amsterdam -- good coffee music man!
  Thu. 4/10/08 2:46am slugluv1313:

don't worry, i am not a druggie! that Thera Flu and Extra Srength Tylenol are like the only store-bought drugs i keep in the house -- everything else pretty much sucks because it does not work and/or has horrific side-effects . . .

so yeah stick with voodoo, Santeria, herbal, etc. etc. etc. . . .

-- "expert herbal bitch"
  Thu. 4/10/08 3:35am Ike:

Good show! This Toumani Diabate track is beautiful.

So, if someone says they want to hire me, but that they need to get their HR Dept. to approve it, and then I don't hear back from them and can't get in touch, should I still show up for work? I guess I'll give it a shot... T minus 6 hours and counting until I show up there!
  Thu. 4/10/08 3:39am bwalker:

just make sure you show up ARMED
  Thu. 4/10/08 3:44am Ike:

HA! The security is actually pretty tight, so I'll just bring my regular arms, and legs.
  Thu. 4/10/08 3:51am slugluv1313:

YES i agree with Ike, this Toumnai Diabate is exquisite!!!!!!!!!

Ike, i would DEFINITELY show up -- at the very least, *YOU* are the one who is being RESPONSIBLE -- even if the employer is NOT behaving in an appropriate manner . . .

i have had similar stuff happen to me -- this manager was all set to hire me for one location, i did the drug screen thing and they did a credit check on me . . . and then i heard NOTHING -- fearing the worst -- like horrific credit reports and/or some weirdness with the drug screening -- i finally called the manager -- he told me that nothing bad had happened, he just had "not had the time" to call me -- UGH! as i hung up the telephone, i wondered, did i *really* want to work for someone who was so disorganized???)

i sure hope this job is well worth all the STRESS!!!!!!!!! (yeah, i have been looking for another/better job too)

time to make the coffee . . . !!!
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:02am Ike:

Well, the pay isn't great, but it's a job. And it didn't stress me out until today. In this case, the guy may have gone on vacation just after offering the job and up through today, but if so, he should've put me in touch with HR or his own boss or something.

But hey, if they throw me out, I'll call up Scott in the FMU offices and volunteer my envelope-stuffing services for the day. Or I'll wander around Chinatown and eat five dumplings for $1 on Eldridge St.

OK, let's see if I can manage to sleep for a couple of hours. The relaxing music will help! Reminds me a little of Roy Montgomery.
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:12am bwalker:

good luck man! I hope it works out
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:15am slugluv1313:

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!! i mean, if he was going on vacation, all he had to do was tell you, "hey, I'm going on vacation, contact *this person* while I am away" . . . mindlessly simple!

ANYWAY . . . GOOD LUCK!!!! i hope it was just a minor glitch and everything goes well!!!!!!!!!

(gotta feed the cats now!!!! i am getting the "starving kitten routine" hard and heavy!!!!!!!!!!!!)
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:22am catpatz:

our cats starving kitten routine:
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:33am Josh in Genoa:

This is quite a pillowy soft phase of the show, Ben. Nice drifty mid-morning stuff.
Have you got your coffee handy?
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:34am slugluv1313:

awwwwwwww LARS is just TOO ADORABLE!!!!!!!

THANKS for sharing!!!!!!

it is almost as if he is saying, "put the damn camera down and FEED ME, dammit!!!!!!!!!!!!!" hahahaha!!!!

my crazy cat M'IJO is the same way -- what IS it with these Tabby cats?!?! (they even SOUND similar!)

going to share this with a former room-mate -- she has a kitty named LARS too!

-- "expert herbal bitch" a/k/a "crazy-old-cat-lady-of-Hoboken" (it's a dirty job, but hey! SOMEBODY has to do it, ha ha!)
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:36am bwalker:

no coffee for me yet! still on the applejack

meow to all the cats and kittens
  Thu. 4/10/08 4:47am catpatz:

happy to share. im srprised to hear that other cats sound like lars, and have the same name too! we brought lars to denmark from brooklyn and danish people think its especially funny to have a cat named lars.
thanks benjamen for the great soundtrack to my not-so-early not-so-working morning.
  Thu. 4/10/08 5:05am slugluv1313:

i think my pal named her kitty LARS after one of the guys from Metallica!

YES Benjamin i thank you too!!!!!! been up since 2am WAY too early but your show has been the perfect soundtrack . . . (maybe it was the NICK CAVE that commanded me to wake up???)
  Thu. 4/10/08 5:11am slugluv1313:

ooooooo Nick Cave AND Leonard Cohen!!!!!!!! (been listening to them and SADE a LOT in recent weeks)

i sure hope Mr. Cohen tours! never seen him, believe it or not . . . i only recently found out that he is 74 years old?!?!?! NEVER would have guessed that . . . !
  Thu. 4/10/08 5:56am slugluv1313:

feel better, Benjamin and YES! BE CAREFUL out there!!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 4/10/08 8:01pm Ike:

Hey, I was getting the starving kitty routine last night too, my from calico tabby. And hey, the job is on. No sound card on the computer there, though! Sigh. Thanks for the encouragement!
