Favorites For Friday

Well, I had intended to do another post earlier this week but I got side tracked looking for work and various other things. Then when I realized it is now Friday and I was trying to think of a good topic for my Favorites this dawned on me. Jobs! I actually went and did a search on Etsy with just the word job and here are a few things I came up with that caught my eye. One thing I will say is that if you are like me and looking for work, no matter how hard things get you have to attempt to still have a sense of humor about the whole situation. If you don't then that is when you will be in the depths of despair and believe me, I know.

Team Laid Off Tank - Junkprints

The Daily Grind Original Painting - Green Eyes Art Shop

Prosperity, Career & Money Spell Candle - Free Will Magick

Custom Resume & Cover Letter Package - Resumes by Dana

I hope no one is easily offended by this last one but there is kind of a story behind my reason for choosing it which I will explain below.

I Hear Prostitution is Recession Proof Cookies - Bitter Baking Company

So here is the story, about a year ago my husband came in and had this story to tell me. He was in the convenience store buying a paper when he overheard this conversation. I must remind you that this IS Las Vegas so really this is not an unusual conversation I guess. Even after living here for 16 years I still kinda have a hard time coming to terms with how bizarre a place Las Vegas is.

1st Man - Hey dude how's it going?
2nd Man - Not so good, no work, things aren't looking good.
1st Man - Oh man, that stinks.
2nd Man - Yeah, things are so bad my woman had to go back to hooking (me-now you'd thing the 1st man would be like OMG!!!!)
1st Man - Really, man that stinks (very matter of factly)

Again, I apologize if you are offended but when I saw these cookies it totally reminded me of that bizarre conversation my husband overheard. I can only say that I know that you would never hear a conversation like that ANYWHERE else in the world or if you did then the 1st man/woman would be freaking out. Hope you enjoyed these favorites since I chose them as they actually made me smile which as I say is the most important thing in these times right now.

  1. In any other city I'd probably think the 2nd man actually said his woman had to go back to cooking but Vegas is so not like any other city! :D
