Hey "Barney Fife," Mind your own business. I can handle overtime. I can handle the pay. I can handle anything. I worked for Bankers life and Casualty and didn't get paid for three months straight while working, so I can handle anything. I know others who are reps for Foremost and Farmers and NO I will not visit that dumb website. I am a single person with no kids, no ties, I can do whatever I want and don't need the advise of people who can't even use their real name.

And how does one not get ANY overtime and yet still work 60 hours a week? Hmm... that's a head-scratcher.

Since my last post, I also applied for a position in Gainsville, FL and in North Carolina.

Did I mention they pay relocation expenses? Rock on.
ATTENTION INDIANA RESIDENTS:

Possibly coming to a catastrophe near you: ME!

I applied for a job today in Indianapolis with Farmers Insurance (they own Foremost, whom I work for now). I'm super excited. Its for a claim representative position, and I jumped at the chance to apply. I have been hesitant to think about moving away since my mom has been ill, but things are going better for her lately and I also figured its not that far away. Plus, I'm single, so I might as well take a chance like this if it comes along! I mean, its not so far fetched... I was looking at jobs in the United Kingdom yesterday with our other parent company!

So, don't get too excited yet (Amanda Faz)- but I'm really hopeful. Not only would I be moving closer to lots of friends (who may or may not need babysitters someday and whose kids like dogs)... I'm stoked. Trying not to be too excited, because I just applied, so its not like I've been offered the job yet.

There would also be a 2 week tra…
I need you all to comment on this if you want me to link you up to my blog (those of you who already are- you're safe). However, I changed templates without paying attention and lost most of my links. Most of them were out-of-date anyway, but please- HOOK ME UP!

Thanks !!!!

I had a date this weekend. Yes- believe it or not. Haha. Well- here's what... it was the first time EVER that a man has given me a bouquet of flowers. I've gotten a single rose, or something of the like before- say when Jeff and I were dating... (ok- not the best example)- and I've also gotten them when I was in shows from other male castmates.... doesn't really count. Anyway, we were talking on the phone when he pulled in (he's unfamiliar with Lake Odessa like EVERYONE else- haha) and I told him I'd just come right down. I didn't do this because I didn't want him to come up or anything- I just didn't want him to have to wait for me. However, he came up and had a nice bouquet of flowers, which I thought was VERY sweet. We went out to eat, and then went back to my apartment and watched the end of the Tigers game. It was fun, and I think a pretty good date... but then again.. I'm out of practice for the most part.

I am pretty much sick of people. This is why:

A while back, we were in a meeting at work, and we all had to go around and say something about ourselves that most people don't know. One girl said she worked at a Chinese Restaurant for a day. I commented by saying "You didn't see any cats wandering around in the back, did you?" And I got talked to-- saying that It was a racist comment. When I asked my supervisor if that comment was racist, she said "I don't know, is it?"

Now yesterday I was telling a guy that sit next to me about this Jim Gaffigan bit where he says that you could say "I'd like to talk to you about Jesus" to the Pope and he'd say "Easy freak, I keep my work at work." And I got approached asking if I had made jokes about the Pope.

I am just so fed up! Why are people so uptight? I mean, I'm a Believer and I still am able to have a sense of humor!

I really hope I get one of the positions I'm interviewi…
Last night was the karaoke contest I mentioned, and I made the finals. There were 39 singers, and I was singer number 32! I was there all night and it didn't finish until almost midnight! But I am one of the 15 finalists. So, if any of you are out there reading this, keep me in your prayers! Money will be awarded tonight and I'm so excited to get this show on the road!
This is going to sound silly, but keep me in your prayers.

I am in a karaoke contest this week, and I'm gearing up for it. The semi-finals are tomorrow (Thurs) and the finals are Friday.

I ask this because there are cash prizes! I really need the money and could use this money for car payment assistance, as well as other things. I would really like to win some cash money!

More later... Have to get back to work...
