The clock is ticking.  The year 2011 is ending.  The year 2012 is starting.  There might be eight inches of snow falling in near white out conditions between now and Tuesday for Cleveland, Ohio.  Nobody is sure when it will happen.  The weather reports is all in panic about the approaching snow.  The first real snow of Winter 2011 to 2012.  Personally, Winter 2011 to 2012 has been a huge disappointment with temporary easy to melt snow that fell and vanished twice.  Cleveland, Ohio doesn't normally have such lame winters.  I'm hoping the global warming/greenhouse effect isn't having something to do with this.  It's a double edged sword.  If significant snow falls, it will be difficult for me to go job hunting on a bicycle.  If signficant snow doesn't fall, than global warming/the greenhouse effect is getting closer and Earth is doomed.  I'm not trying to worry about that now.  I can't worry about that on New Years Day.  New Years Day is the day to celebrate the end of the year 2011 and the start of the year 2012.  Break out the noise makers and crack open the champaign.  New Years Day has arrived once again.  Happy New Year everybody. 

Anyway, here are some photos of film actress Sandra Bullock.


Yes, I know what you are thinking.  You are thinking that the tabloid paparazzi are the scum of the Earth.  Here is this celebrity trying to move around in life and these people won't stop taking photos almost every second.  Depending on how popular the celebrity is, the number of tabloid paparazzi taking photos starts to increase in size.  For some celebrities, it's life incarcerated in the celebrities own home because there's too much shutterbugs buzzing around.
However, I'm not famous.  I move through life without notice.  I could walk right past anybody and they won't even know I'm there.  Yes, being under seige of paparazzi shutterbugs sounds really nice.  Because I'm employed doing something.  I'm having more money than I could know what to do with.  And if I'm smart, I'll have a huge bank account without any financial debts of epic proportions.  So here I am.  I'm not famous, I'm unemployed and I'm riding a bike because I can't afford a car.  What happens next is only hypothetical.  Suppose a tabloid newspaper offers me a outlandish sum of money to follow around celebrities and take their photos non-stop.  In return, I'll earn a paycheck to pay off my college tuition loans.  I'll earn a paycheck to move out of my Mom's house and into my own apartment.  I'll earn a paycheck to pay for a car.  I'll earn a paycheck to dig myself out of this hole and back to normal.  Would I take advantage of the opportunity?  Yes, I probably would.  Has the offer been presented to me?  Not yet.  So I'm not sure if the tabloid paparazzi is the scum of the Earth because it's not a problem that I have to deal with on a daily basis.  I'm more worried about finding minimum wage employment that will last longer than between four and a half hours to four days.

While I'm thinking about the tabloid paparazzi issue, here are some photos of film actress Heather Graham.


If there is any long term plans set only for the year 2011, you only have fourteen hours left to complete it.  If your long term plans doesn't involve the year 2012, then you're screwed.  There's only fourteen hours left in the year 2011 so you might as well learn to get used to it.  Time marches forward.  Time doesn't care if you're prepared for the future.  Time doesn't care if you are prepared for the future.  Time marches forward in a cold methodical manner.  And so the question is if I'm ready for the future.  The truth is that I'm not ready for the future.  I'm not employed.  My college tuition loans hasn't been paid in full yet.  I don't own a car.  I'm living in my Mom's house because I can't afford to pay the rent for an apartment.  I can't pay the rent for an apartment without employment.  Employment that lasts between four and a half hours to four days isn't enough to pay an entire years worth of apartment rent.  It's barely enough to cover utilities for an entire month let along for an entire year.  So I'll keep filling out job application forms.  It's either that or hide in my Mom's house or become homeless and desitute.  I don't want to hide in my Mom's house.  I don't want to become homeless and destitute.  So I'll keep filling out job application forms until I'm employed again.  So Happy New Year everybody.  Time to say goodbye to the year 2011 and say hello to the year 2012.  With luck, the year 2012 will be full of good luck and good fortune. 

As I prepare to celebrate New Years Day, here are some photos of film actress Amber Tamblyn---The biologic daughter of film actor Russ Tamblyn.
