they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

one of these things is not like the other.

today, i went to the unemployment office for my 4-week check-in. you have to do that to keep getting unemployment benefits. the office is at 17th and paseo. and i didn't fit in. gasp! was i surprised? no. this city is so segregated it's insane. i mean, really. and i knew that choosing that unemployment office meant i was going to stick out as a white girl in a hot pink shirt with a tattoo on her arm. and i did stand out. who cares? i didn't.

but what i do care about is how dumb it is that i have to go to an office like that once a month, sit down at a computer, type in my name and pin number and that's it. THAT'S it? yep. so lame, right?

the system sucks.

    Yet another reason why Kansas rules and Missouri drools. All my unemployment checking in was done online. WIN.

    I thought once you got started, you could do it from home on your own computer.
