Serena's Primer For Karma Repair - Lesson 1

myspace layouts

I know my karma is not currently in a state of grace. That's a given. We all know that. It's actually pretty crappy, as evidenced by the dog having diarrhea yesterday. But there could be a teensy reprieve on the horizon.

SG called me last night to tell me how it went when she gave her Boss Lady notice yesterday. She said the witch actually took it pretty well, but she did say she was just going to have to close her office after BL's attempts to entice SG to stay fell on deaf ears. To SG's credit, she refused to tell BL where her new job was. Well, hell, BL should have closed out her practice six months ago. Everybody in town knows that. In any event, SG said they're going to talk more about it tomorrow. I, ever tactful, of course, asked SG what she would do if BL offered to sell her the house she's renting from BL at a reduced price and double her salary. Would she stay with BL then? And SG said she just didn't know. But I know! Damn straight SG would hop right on that!

I had to head off any possibility of that not happening at the pass, of course, so I got out my New Orleans souvenir Voodoo doll last night and jabbed pins in the damn thing 'til I thought I heard it squeal. And I made it promise me that BL will promise SG the moon and SG will fall for it. And then I had a snort of rum. Ha! That'll show 'em I mean business.

Okay, I'm composed now. So -- have a Terrific Tuesday! And if you want to join me in a toast to the redemption of my karma, I'm happy to recommend Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. It's great with Coke Zero.

P.S. If this doesn't work, the next pin sticks will be toward a house falling on SG and a mangy, ugly dog running off with her shoes sticking out from under it. Sooner or later, the law of averages has to kick in, don't you think?

Well, gee, at this point I'm hoping your new employer does not take BL in as a partner.

Also: I stumbled across Jewel's "You Were Meant For Me"* (* which USED to be our** (** Jewel's and Yours Truly's) special song) yesterday after reading your post. However, to my dismay, it seems to have morphed into "Serena's and SG's special song". Just great. The bad karma is contageous. :-(

Arrrrrrgh. Some of me best memories (or lack thereof) were made with Captain Morgan hisself. And if you get some Jamaican Rum, it'll make your head spin backwards. Ha! I used to keep a Vanilla bottle of it at work for work emergencies. ;-) You will prevail!! xoxo

Perish the thought, Pugsley! If Bitchzilla turns up as a new partner, I'm taking my toys and going home. Listen, I'm writing to Jewel on your behalf and begging her to take back the song. The words "SG," "Serena," and "special" used in the same sentence is just nasty!;)

Maybe not a Karmann Ghia, /t., but a little used karma, sure! I agree, dropping a couple of ice cubes in the spiced rum is mondo refreshing. Bottoms up!;)

I have a practically unused bottle of Baccardi's, Marion -- abandoned and neglected since I fell in love with the Captain. That's not Jamaican, is it? With enough of either one, though, damn skippy I'll prevail!:)

Oh, picky, picky, Galen. So I had ONE. It got the job done, though.;)
