Hi! Wish I had been prepared w/ some stationery this morning – went to the Public Health Clinic to get my food-handlers permit – what an experience jut to sit down there & wait. The test itself just took a minute – but my what people were down there. At least it was free! I go back on Thursday to get the results!
The man I need to meet w/ about the DQ job won't be back till tomorrow – he's in Las Vegas for the day – hope he doesn't lose a bunch of $ – then come back to San Diego in a bad mood! He's been in the "East" (common word here) for a conference.
Yesterday I filled out 38 job applications plus stopped in at the 2 agencies. Some places I play up my education – other places I keep quiet.
I also called up Joan of Arc Residence today – will move in there tomorrow. I have the room – as I requested – and she kept it open for me – on 3rd floor – close to the elevator. It really is well located – if you have a city map of San Diego – it's at the corner of Beach / 3rd. It's got the Cath. Church just across the street. Also the place for Senior Citizens, Bookshop, etc. (all run by the Catholics)
As for my bank book – I don't seem to have it – so if you try to find it – best of luck. It should be at the house though – because I had it in New Jersey. I do need the money though – if not to pay the employment agency – then to live on. (Ho, Hum!) Actually I'm under no contract to stay – so should all places of business fail to see a hard worker – I'll be moving on. It will just take time to tell.
Of course I would love to get into Restaurant Management – but at the same time I've got applications in for waitress jobs at all kinds of places – from coffee shops – to places w/ 4 stars in the Mobile Tour Guide Book.
I went back to Weight Watchers last night – it won't be as easy as it might be living out here w/ out a place (kitchen) of my own – but I know I can do it. Besides its a good way of meeting people.
Please send the $ as soon as possible. Maybe its only 1400 hundred – I really don't remember. What a sad story – I came out to make $ to travel – and now I'm spending that $ to get a job – I'll be happy when I get my account build up again.
I've got lots of free stationery now to use – and thanks to you all – plenty of stamps!
As for any tapes that arrive addressed for me – please continue to send them back. Thanks!
Aloha Mary Virginia! Have you heard from Marian? Some weekend or whenever I'm off – I'd like to go & visit her. On the US map it looks just like a short distance between here & Phoenix – at least compared to Ohio. Remember Sally – she has a son out here – has called me twice (from NYC) about calling him ––
Got to go ––
Will let you all know something definite whenever I do.
G'ma – When is your meeting – you will have alot to talk about – hope the pineapple kept OK till you have your meeting. Just let me know when you want to go to Hawaii again – I'm like Delta Airlines – "Ready – when you are."
