Economic Breakup

A friend recently lent me some words of encouragement with the following in an email.
At least you're one of a gazillion people getting laid off, so when the economy says "it's not you, it's me," you know it actually means it.

Newly Funemployed!
Robin got her walking papers just this past week!
Robin, it's not you, it's them... and now, you're one of us. Congrats!

I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and it's totally hilarious! Thank you. I found it by doing a blog search for local sf bands and then from deplorable/beautiful, there was a link to yours... and I was hooked! I (unfortunately now) quit my job in July before all this economic dust bowl stuff was in full effect. I thought gee, I can just go back to temping like I did last year... but I've signed up with 6 temp companies and 1 of them just went out of business!! It's kind of a bad sign. Anyways, I've never posted a comment on your blog but felt compelled to do so today because I actually have a temp assignment and I get to read blogs at work! I'm looking forward to more of your funemployment posts that make me laugh at inappropriate moments on job assignments where no one cares what my name is.

Hi heathered! Thanks so much for the compliments on the blog. It's really fun to know that people other than my friends actually read this :) My friends at deplorable/beautiful were pretty stoked that you found them too!
I'm in a similar boat with the temp agency world. It's tough, man!
I checked out you're a skyscraper- so much fun! I love etsy, so was happy to see all your fun finds... and your felt bits!
Best of luck to you in your search and in the meantime, enjoy funemployment!
