Lately, I don’t know what to say. I am currently unemployed, no pets, no kids, no “mans” (as my grandma likes to say), previously quarantined to the house for a week, due to the flu. I wasn’t feeling too haute.
I was working as a personal assistant to someone who promised me the first non-union make-up job that became available. Then when job was available, they gave it to someone else. I guess that’s how it goes here in L.A. It wasn’t so bad that they gave it to someone else, but that the person that I worked so close to, day in and day out, didn’t even have the balls to tell me. Instead I had to hear it from a stranger at the last minute. When I tried to talk to my boss, he wouldn’t return my phone calls.
Of course I am not the first or the last person this has happened to. I have friends that have been screwed over royally. Working long hours for free, with only the smile and the promise of a future paid job. Only to find that in the end, they have been passed over yet again.
So, today to lift my spirits I went out and bought a new Nars, Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Hopi to give my depressed pout a new look.
And of course…. chocolates See’s Chocolate. Two pieces of glorious vanilla, butter cream truffles with pecans.
So, I still don’t have a job but at least I have something to blog about.
