I barely even understand this as practically everyone I know is buried in student loans. Is unemployment a deal-breaker for you? I wouldn’t say it’s an absolute, percent, do-not-pass-go situation, but I would be wary of dating someone without a job. But NOT because I assume unemployed people are some kind of no-ambition losers or anything though, especially after a few years of a tough economy! I’ve been there myself, and I know that plenty of smart, hardworking people go through it. But I would definitely be hesitant to date someone in that current state knowing that it’s such a stressful, confidence-breaking, generally annoying state of mind.

Ironically, my mother is named Calliope, after the muse that inspired Homer. The writer, a conduit, did not invent but record whatever the muse told him. To imagine, in ancient Greece, was really to recall.
While dead souls drank from Lethe to forget their lives, one might alternately drink from Mnemosyne and remember everything. Only a kiss can restore the frog to his true form of prince. Forget the eyes, forget the soul; the lips are the door to memory, which can be unlocked or sealed, as they say, with a kiss. This device, used by memory champions, is a bulwark against a basic tenet of physics, which states that entropy is ever increasing.

I can’t wait for Labor Day. I’m feeling too corporate lately. That Human Resources Department apparently they weren’t around in Caligula’s day makes me behave. I do plan to commit several Human Resource violations this weekend at the beach, but that’s why it’s Labor Day!

I would describe it as “marketing for Coke,” dressing it up a bit and making it sound permanent.
Sometimes I’d respond with “absolutely nothing,” trying to “own” my unemployment but, like most of my tactics , that didn’t work either.

I was 37, single, unemployed and depressed because in a couple of months I was going to be moving out of my studio apartment on East 23rd Street in Manhattan and in with my mother in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.
