(9:33 AM) | Claire:
For You, Kind BloggersMy week has been marked by kindness and generosity from all reaches of the blogosphere. When I posted my desperate plea for help in finding a new job, I never expected it to be linked at the Weblog and Unfogged. But that is exactly what happened. Some readers eagerly supplied me with contacts, while others cruelly mocked my networking efforts. Coming into this week, I have a couple new contacts and more hope than ever that I may not be damned to spend eternity in my present job. I want to thank each and every one of you for the leads and support. I dedicate these hatreds to the kind strangers of the Weblog.
I hate that I found it necessary to come into work sick today to avoid the cheesefry explosion that takes place when I try to take time off.
I hate that for every one of my woes, there is a corresponding curative baked good.
I hate that I lost a spelling and drinking bee with the word 'elegy.'
I hate that after the spelling/drinking bee, I arrive at my painting class drunk and dehydrated and proceeded to make a painting so horrible that my teacher told me to stop painting and finish next week.
I hate that I let Ben Wolfson correct my grammar.
I hate that more people don't come bathe in the healing light of my blog.
If you just don't have it in you to hate, visit the McElroy family blog where it's all love- all the time.
