Hi Erica! I mean everyone. And welcome to my blog, Temp2fire.com. Hopefully this will lead to insta fame and riches--and hours of amusement for you, my reader(s).

Basically, my point here is two-fold. First of all, I am bored out of my everloving mind for around 70% of my waking hours. Not to get too Office-Spacey, but my day goes a little something like this: wake up to the sound of my neighbor's buzzsaw; contemplate suicide as I freshen up last night's eyeliner; show up late; space out until 3 p.m.; sort mail; leave. Soo, this provides me with a little something to do. Personal email is blocked at this company because of viruses, so I can't email my friends or go on frickin' MySpace. SO basically, my sources of entertainment are limited to: Craigslist, Perezhilton and all that crap, and the newspaper websites, which make my eyes hurt when I'm hungover, which is often. Point being, I'm bored. And frickin' awful employee.

Secondly, and in all seriousness, us temp workers are arguably the most shat upon segment of the work force, maybe besides like door-to-door canvassers or tax collectors or other more glaringly obvious like migrant workers. But still, we tend to fly under the radar, which is sometimes a plus esp. when, like myself, you don't do shit. But we don't get insurance...we don't get to load up on free drinx at the holiday party...and worst of all, temping is stereotypically associated with a lack of ambition. When, little do they know--I also pen this hot blog and am planning on applying to State! So more importantly, this site is giving voice to a population pushed to the margins. And I also would like to offer tips for youngsters entering the work force on how to get away with things and how to get the most bang for your buck. Oh, if only I knew then that I do now. (I'd be a Rod Stewart song.)

Therefore, my blog will be very useful to myself and to others, if only Erica. Time to do the mail. Peace.
