Sara Joins the Club

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, and Billy.

Subject: Another One Bites the Dust

Well, fuck.” Sara says, returning home to a busy apartment of Ann cooking, Frank and Billy playing chess, and Tabitha reading a book at the table. “I’ve joined the club.”

From Pictures

Club?” Tabitha asks, looking up from her book.

You know, those people they keep talking about. The rising unemployment rate.” Sara says.

Lost your job? What happened?” Ann asks.

Economy. They fired like eight people.” Sara explains.

That sucks Sara. Sorry.” Billy says.

Maybe I should take it as a slap in the face to change careers, or at least find a job I actually like. This support stuff is tough.”

Not sure this is the economy to be switching careers in. Unless you’re talking more school.”

Or playing poker. You could be my apprentice.” Frank chimes in.

Not sure I have the stomach for poker. All that money on the line. Too nerve-wracking.”

You’ll get unemployment at least.”

Sure. It’s not what I was making, but should keep me afloat.”

You get along with the people at work right? At least you’ll get a good reference from them.”

True. I’ll have to see what’s out there. Maybe another job is right around the corner.”

On the plus side, you no longer have to commute to Jersey every day!” Frank says. “Oh, and checkmate Billy.”

Doh!”

That’s an excellent observation. If I never see that part of Jersey City again, I certainly won’t miss it.”

6th Floor Super Bowl

Welcome to the .

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Super Bowl Sunday

Quick note before I get on with the post. I’ve connected with a domain, so now the official link of the blog is www.ceetar.com/6thfloorblog. Likely switching to wordpress, but working on getting the starts of an acceptable theme setup, so as of now, that link redirects. But it won’t. I’ve commissioned Sara to start tweaking some stuff, for instance, the width of the site. It was stupid and small prior, and I always felt like things were getting squished. I should’ve done this a while ago. I also need to fix the header graphic now, as it looks tiny.

Vegas was a blast, but I’m glad I got the red-eye and am here for Super Bowl Sunday! Woo, go Steelers!”

I think I’m going with the underdog story in the Cardinals.”

I’m just hoping it ends. Some cool commercials, like last year, couldn’t hurt.”

Good football, good snacks.. That’s all I need.”

I’ve already resolved myself that football is over, and there is no way the game will be as good as last year.”

Baseball season! Baseball! Pitchers and catchers report in like two weeks!”

Rather giddy aren’t you? You’d think you’d have learned by now, yet every spring you get your hopes up, and every October you’re a miserable wreck of a person for two weeks.”

Bah! This year IS the year. You just wait and see.”

———Football Game———-

I dunno Scott. That game was pretty exciting.”

Last year was better.”

Two Super Bowls for Ben Roethlisberger now. Are we going to get Eli-Ben comparisons again about how the Giants should’ve taken him?”

No, I think Eli’s fine. I’m sure some idiots will bring that up on WFAN, but Eli won last year, he didn’t have a great post season this year, but I don’t think anyone’s worried.”

So, how lame was the 3D glasses thing?

Hated it. The commercials weren’t bad, the the idea that they actually sent out millions of glasses around the country?”

Would’ve been lamer if Tabitha hadn’t spotted the glasses and picked them up for us.”

That’s true. Kudos Tab. Maybe I’ll even watch Chuck tonight to make the most use of them.”

There were some funny commercials..but in general I think this year failed. Maybe the economy caused the ad agencies to let some of their people go?”

You’d think they’d be smart enough to keep the funny guys though.”

You know what the big-wigs thing is funny, and what’s actually funny are usually completely different things.”

It’s the old adage: Most people end up doing the job that’s one level above what they’re good at.”

That can’t be true. It implies that most people are doing things they’re not good at.”

Explains the state of our country though.”

Hard to argue that.”
