Bam! …a shoe! Bam! …another shoe!


Puppy-lover for President! Yeaahhhh! Jubilation, etc.

And here's the only other "Obama" pic I currently have hanging around:


Jean has been making Obama face all morning to signify her pleasure with the election results. Also, she came upstairs and tucked herself under the blanket on the futon because it is very cold, because we have not turned on the heater yet, because…

…well, the magazine folded and I have no job any more. Bam! Happy freaking holidays!

However, my beloved buddy Suzy is coming over this morning to help me hammer out a heck of a resume so I can get a heck of a new job. And I am also turning to Craigslist to advertise custom-designed holiday cards: either template-based digital photo cards ($25 for a simple design; $50 for a complex one) or handmade traditional paper cards ($2-$4 apiece depending on design). And, um, well, we've already been working on the being-happy-to-eat-dried-beans part, so hey, what else can one ask for?

(Jean's little head sticking out from under the blanket is very cute. Almost cute enough for me to venture downstairs, where it's a good eight degrees colder, and get the camera so I can capture this temporary preciousness for posterity. But, y'know, not quite that cute.)

    Oh, Molly. I am really sorry. Are there any other slots at CK Media you could slide into? You’ve been with them a long time.
    I hope you can find something terrific for yourself–and fast! And you know, Obama will be spreading the wealth, so if you just hang in there till January…! 😉

    You’re so funny [laughing]!
    I’m really sorry to hear your news. Until you find something, do you have an virtual store of sorts for the many online FOMs (Friends of Molly)? We need cards, too, you know 🙂

    Molly, I am so sorry about the magazine! It was always one of my little joys! Knowing so many of you wonderful ladies made it even more special. Sending you and all of the wonderful staff some big hugs.
