How Do These People Get These Great Jobs?

This was on MSNBC this morning:

"During the first three months of the year, Bush has been the punch line of 307 monologue jokes by Jay Leno, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien, according to the Center for Media and Public affairs, which studies this sort of thing.

That compares to 197 jokes during the same period last year. For all of 2005, the center's statisticians counted 544 Bush jokes."

First of all, who cares? Secondly, I would LOVE to have that job! Imagine getting paid to watch Dave, Jay, and Conan! Gah, I definitely studied the wrong subject in college.

Further into the article is one of the jokes that made me laugh:

"Did you know former President James Garfield could write Latin with one hand and Greek with the other at the same time?" Leno said. "That was Garfield. When President Bush heard about it, he said, `We had a talking cat for president?'"

What's everyone doing this weekend? I'm having breakfast tomorrow with my brother, Don, and then I'm going to clean house and look for grad assistantships at the schools I'm considering, which will take most of a day to do, and then I'm going to get some reading done. I'll post the latest books I've read later. Abby and I are going to go walking at the park, too, unless it's raining. I'm skipping Emily's softball tournament. Bad Auntie. Did I tell you guys that the University of Oklahoma sent me an acceptance, too? Now I have three schools to consider and more chances of finding a job!

That would be an awesome job. I could totally do that and be a stay at home mom!

And congrats on all the acceptance. I know one of them is the perfect place for you, now you gotta just figure out which one! GAH! Good luck and we can't wait to hear more!

Me, I'm home nursing a nasty case of laryngitis. I was supposed to be at a blogger weekend in PA. So I'm slightly bitter.

Congratulations on your 3rd acceptance! They all want you!

That joke made me laugh also.

Good luck with the job thing. And congratulations on the Univ of Okla acceptance.
