Well, I wish I could say that the first day of real unemployment was just like The Staycation but better... but I can't.

Things are not so hot here at Casa Tangobaby and even though you guys would all probably make me feel better if I went and visited you all, I just don't have the whatever it is right now to do that.

So play amongst yourselves and please do visit i live here: SF and tell all of your friends about it and follow it so you can get updates and all of that good and happy stuff because it's wonderful right now and I'm not wonderful right now.

But I totally love you guys and I'll see you soon.

I got your back, sweet wonder. You bring light and joy to so many. And you ARE all that, up or down. I got your back.

here is a song to cheer you up:

It rocks!

The tide will turn my friend, the tide will turn. Hang in there.

Don't ever fake it. A few years of that have shown me that the 'whole fake it til you make bit' is a bunch of shit. Being unemployed sucks ass. I've been there. Twice. As a single parent. But never in San Fran. I think those factors almost equal out. Oh, and, I could use a manicurist who speaks english. FYI.

Mari April 6, 2009 at 6:29 PM  

We'll be right here when you get back.

Cynthia April 6, 2009 at 7:08 PM  

May your darling heart be filled with the love that you so willingly share with everyone, Ms Julie Tangobaby.

Wishing you a return of the joyful dance in your step-soon! xx <3

oh honey....I adore you. Wish that I could help. I'm thinking of you.

You know, life is not all peaches & cream. Duh, right?!
And the thing about friends, even just bloggy ones, is that they will listen (or read in this case), good or bad, happy or sad.
You have a following of supporters, go ahead, spew if it helps! You might end up hearing exactly what you need.
Or just pull the blankies over and hibernate for a while.
We'll be waiting for you!

Sandra April 6, 2009 at 7:29 PM  

All I can say is, I think you are wonderful and you will be wonderful always. Be sad for awhile, it is necessary. Then come back and talk to us. I usually don't talk back, but I do listen.

You are in a moodle. The other side is always better.

Feel your way through your feelings. You are magnificent! Hugs as big as the distance from MA to CA

Keep your head up hun, you have so many things to be proud of, don't let it beat you.
Sending you a little hope from the land of Tom Jones xx

Know that it is not just you. One of my friends, who is probably the best lawyer I know, is currently out of work because of an unfortunate twist of fate.

Things will change, and they will be for the better.

I remember all the times I felt the way you do now, and how it always turned out that the bad thing that happened brought happier things later down the line, that wouldn't have come about without the bad thing happening. It may be a cliche, but it's true. Hang in there.

Relyn April 7, 2009 at 12:06 PM  

Love you. That's all. Just love you.

Carol April 7, 2009 at 1:28 PM  

I'm thinking of you!

sonorossa April 7, 2009 at 3:04 PM  

I'm not an expert on many things...but I do know a helluva lot about being unemployed in San Francisco. I'm here for you. Let me know if you need to talk/vent/rejoice/whateva/whateva.

You touch my heart.

Sending positive vibes your way. Prayers sent up.

One Love, Se'Lah

Sigh... What can I say?... Thinking about you with love... I've been feeling awful too...

SE'LAH... April 8, 2009 at 9:26 PM  

You came across my thoughts so I thought I'd stop in a leave you a note.

JAH will provide!

Well wishes from France...don't forget:
"sometimes our light goes out, but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light."
Albert Schweitzer

I hope you can find somebody/something to rekindle your light as I'm sure you (and/or your blog) have surely rekindled somebody elses' light in the past...:)

i remember some 4 years ago when i was in deep shit (no more house, no money, no boyfriend), friends told me : eh the wheel turns, you know...
and it did...and I know it will for you too...

thinking of you and sending you heaps of good vibes...
hang in there sweetie!

It really is an odd phenomenon to be so upset about losing something you didn't really like anyway. But I suppose loss is loss, and if it wasn't filling some important need it wouldn't smart so much. So the question is, discard the need or find something to fill it?

Since I'm playing catch up and reading your blogs in backwards order (for some ridiculous reason) I know that you're feeling better now which makes me happy. : D
