a general update

so i totally don't have a job, but i heard from those that do have jobs that today was a long day. that everyone is back from vacation, that there's lots of work to do, and it's gonna be a long week.

that totally sucks for you!

i'm looking at an apt occupied by a very anal girl (her ad was ridiculous) but i'm desperate and have to at least run through it. and also an apartment with a bunch of theatre people. i sent their ad to all my friends telling them it was a game and to count the spelling errors alone. my favorite is that they spell apartment wrong in the title of the ad. other favorites are their spelling of "gourmet" and "leisure"...both classic. i'm pretty certain that i dislike theatre people enough that i can't possibly live with them. i spent four years of college with musical theatre people. when they're not talking about themselves (divas!) they're singing, no...belting sondheim down the halls. it's cute, for about a day before you want to pull all your hairs out, one by one, until you're bald and then scalp yourself.

will breathe deep and relax a bit about adonis. hopefully i'll hear from him this week. if not, he gets about one more call from me before...poof!...no mas.

my friend melissa met this woman laren at a wine event and found out she was a lawyer working for a non-profit, which btw, is exactly what i want to do (rather, if i must practice law, that's what i'd prefer to do...). so she told laren all about me, gave me laren's number. laren and i have been playing a bit of phone tag but i'm at the gothamist today, reading something in their archives and i see laren's name. she's the food editor for the gothamist! basically, she's not actively practicing the law but she has the coolest job ever and is by far one of the coolest people i've never met. she also has a blog. go check it out and send over good vibes in the hope that we get along and she can help me find a job half as fun as hers. i've been perusing her blog and we have a scary amount of stuff in common. in fact, i've probably seen her out before because we both eat at otto ALL the time (they have the BEST carbonara in the city).

will let y'all know about the "appartments" tomorrow. i hope they're good. but honestly, if they suck it's okay. because the sucky apartments have been making really good blog fodder. don't you agree? actually, i could use a good laugh. let's hope the one is good since i think we all know the crazy theatre one will be nuts (who doesn't know how to spell the word apartment?!!!).

also, am strangely meeting with representatives this weekend from a company that aims to make blogs into books. they're english and over in gotham city for a few days to meet nyc bloggers. i told them to go and read my blog before they tell me they want to meet with me. i don't think they listened because we're "doing lunch" on saturday anyway. i've directed them to all the "good nyc bloggers" (i.e. waiterrant, mimi, opinionista, standingonthebox, etc) and thought that would distract them from this little place, but to no avail.

good luck with the apartment thing, the job thing, and the man thing(there is no such thing as an easy relationship but both people have to want to work for it or it won't work)

You should totally try and make your blog into a book. I like reading it and I love books. however if you do it, you have to keep your regular blog going so that we don't all miss our daily fix of Jasmine(even if lately, it has been more of a weekly sort of thing for me).

jas, all i have to say is be careful with the theater peeps.

re: the book -- i'm so proud; i've been here since near the beginning! so if you publish i'll be expecting an autographed copy, missy.

Good luck with the appartments! Theatre people are a strange lot--my brother is one. Though he doesn't sing.

& whoa--a book? That would be pretty huge. I can't say I'm not jealous.

Don't let Adonis push you around about the text messages...

I think you should avoid the crazy theater apartment if at all possible. You would have a headache after the first act of RENT, and there's no telling what shape you would be in by the time they finished.

Definitely better to go with the OCD girl. At least you will be able to sleep after you turn out the lights three times.

Have you considered that the book people have tried to read, but just can't get past the boob picture? Which would be perfectly ok, as long as they're also counting on using your picture to sell the book.
