I need a job!

Okay so now that I'm not working I decided to join facebook. I am probably the only person not on it at this point so now that I have a little time on my hands I decided to join. After joining facebook, I renewed my linked-in account, my twitter account and my East Orange High School Panther Networking group. Okay so NOW I have no time to look for a job! I get up in the morning get the kids off to camp and then I'm on the computer for the next four hours trying to keep socially connected with everyone! Not only do you have to be connected but THEN you have to have something to say! And it better be witty, deep, or funny! How much can I make up? How much do I want to share? How much do people want to hear? I get a million messages from facebook, then its on to twitter to talk about what I'm doing, or not doing ( I went to the gym this morning! NOT!!!) then onto linked-in to talk up job prospects, then to EOHS to talk to old high school friends. I need a break, but you can't take a break because then everyone is like where are you, what happened? And then you have to answer a whole new set of questions! My life was a lot easier when I didn't have to entertain or answer to 2 thousand other people!
Why can't everyone just read the Pookalita Blog and be done with it?

Love Letter to Michael

Dear Michael,
I miss you...more than I thought I ever would. We have been friends for so long that I never thought a time would come when you wouldn't be with me. We grew up together as old friends do. I had such a crush on you! Not a secret crush because it was shared by many. I always thought that I loved you the most though! You were so talented and so cute. Your music touched my soul and colored my life. As I grew from childhood to adulthood so did you. I felt you change in the words you wrote and the songs you sang. I watched as a friend, when your face was often covered and your skin was no longer the same as mine. Dear Michael. I watched as a friend, when they said so many things about you. Dear Michael. I watched as a friend, as you became a husband and a father. Dear Michael. I watched as a friend, when you were in physical and emotional pain. Dear Michael. I watched as a friend, as you touched people across gender, class, and color lines as only the King of Pop could. I watched as a friend, as your sense of charity was matched by no other. I watched as a friend, as your music continued to touch us from decade to decade. I watched as a friend, when the entire world wished you an emotional and very personal, fond farewell. My Dear Friend Michael....may you finally rest in peace.

Love Donna
