    As some of you know, I (like Jiggles) am getting laid off within the next 30 to 60 days from the job I've had at Discovery Channel for 3 years. And many customers have been sympathetic, many giving me business cards and phone numbers to call for some very nice paying jobs.

    But one question bugs the shit out of me.

    "So what are you going to do?"

    Why do you ask this question? What does everyone do when they lose their job? They get a new fucking job. I think from now on, when someone asks me that question, I'm going to respond "I think I'll blow my fucking head off tonight when I get home, maybe molest a few puppies first."

    Maybe I'm just testy due to the annoyance and timing of it all.

    The question is still pertinent. I mean, some folks that get laid off go get a new job. Others might go back to school. Some might rely on a spouse for finance for a while.

    Unless I'm selling it to you, that totally defeats the purpose of relying on you. How come I can never depend on you when it matters the most? You're such a jerk. I can't believe I gave up my friends for you.

    I might as well piss on my hands to clean them instead of washing them at that point. It benefits me just about the same.

    Because KA doesn't like me because I think He-Man sucks. And it's just depressing me SO much.

    Eh? What did you do at the Discovery Channel? Just wondering.

    I think people ask that "stupid" question cause there's always an interested individual that would give answers like these:

    1. Thinking about going back to school to be a home decorator.

    2. Well, I been working on this rocket ship to Pluto. I guess I will have time now to finish it.

    3. Well, I decided to follow my dreams to be a porn star.

    4. It's time to more on. I just enrolled into clown school anyway.

    I'd tell them I'm gonna go postal on my last day. Just to see what their reaction is.

    Probably calling the cops, resulting in me going to jail.

    Then I can meet some of your friends.
