I have been using the quote at the bottom of the post as my signature since I discovered it a month or two back. Usually when I email my friends Dave or George I unclick the signature box so it does not get sent. Well with Dave I have sent it twice by mistake and he called me on it. He let me know that he did not believe in it and I told him that I know that there is someone out there for me who wants to be with me and not use me and that I dont have to be a bitch to get a man.

Well I have completely forgot about this quote and when I sent the email about Scott saying "Hi" and also sending him Mark Morford's Culture Blog I forgot to remove the signature and he called me on it, wondering if I was in one of those moods and why. I told him about the ending of the relationship and that I was in that mood way back when. I am better now. I changed the signature to "Be kind to dragons for thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup".

I will probably be asked about that one as well. LOL!

Had my review today. Got a good rating. Boss annoyed me mainly because usually the supervisor gives the review to the person at least an hour before to look over and they go and discuss it in the meeting. He did not do that. He held it and asked how I thought I did this year. Then started to read it to me. I got a 3.5% raise. Still at low income status. Not even at $50K. Yes in the bay area it is that high of a cost of living. Like I said, I can only afford to buy in a trailer park. I signed the review right there and then, he was surprised at that. I just dont care right now. Least of my worries.

I told George about the trailer park, he told me to get stock instead. Everyone except my mom has told me not to do it. I am inclined not to do it. Plus the fact I only get $70 a month more with the raise after taxes. With "house" payments, rent for the space, home owners insurance, property taxes, car payment, etc. There will be very little left. At least now renting I have a little wiggle room, not much but some. And sometimes I dont pay my mom the car payment until the middle of the month or the next month. Also I would not be able to save up for Disneyland in May, need to have at least $600 for the week for the hotel, park pass and character breakfast. So at least another $200 for food and some gifts. I have $50 Disney Dollars I can use for something.

"The more devoted the woman is, the more quickly the man sobers up and becomes domineering. But the crueler and more faithless she is, the more she mistreats him, indeed the more wantonly she plays with him, the less pity she shows him, the more she arouses the man's lascivious yearning to be loved and worshiped by the woman."

~ Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, from Venus in Furs (translated by Joachim Neugroschel
