Love of the Common People

The title has nothing really to do with the post. I have the Springsteen cover of this Paul Young song going through my head. I thought perhaps if I typed it, it would GET. OUT. OF. MY. HEAD.

Nope. Still there.

Okay, so I uttered the words that would totally horrify my father this morning. My Animal was in bed with me this morning after my husband got up to take a shower. I had on a nightshirt that was loose and has tank top-like non-sleeves. I was lying on my stomach, hoping my nursing boobs wouldn't explode, and Animal pulled my shirt away from my back and pointed, exclaiming her pattened "oooooo". And then, I said it: "What's that, baby? Is that mama's tattoo?" Yep. Dad is so proud.

The interview went well. I think that if I am wrong and they don't have someone in mind for it, I am in the running. It's MUCH higher level than I thought and very high stress/high responsibility. It involves the public yelling at you a lot. I'm somewhat used to that and am fairly good at diffusing angry people. We'll see. However it turns out, it's good to know I can still talk preservation without sounding like a tool, and it was great to see everyone at the office.

I am such a L-O-S-E-R and in need of other's love and approval. I noticed I lost a subscriber in Bloglines. I hope I'm not too offensive/boring/lazy of a blogger. I know I have been slacking on posting lately. Thanks to the four of you who have stuck it out.

I am so hoping you get the job.

And, if it makes you feel any better, you still have one more Bloglines subscriber than I do. And I've been blogging a lot longer than you have. And two of my readers are my friends. So, um, there ya go. My life bores everyone. Including me.

Me, too. Keep your fingers crossed.

And, it does make me feel better. At least your other blogs have subscribers. Oh, well. It's quality, not quantity, right? Are you with me?
