I can’t help but feel a sense of regret for not being there for Conan when he took over the Tonight Show. Due to working dumb shifts and switching jobs, I’ve missed several episodes. I’ve been a huge fan of his for years. Many of the skits that I laughed hysterically at on SNL were written by him.
I am saddened by the decision that NBC made to not keep Conan at all, he worked hard for them and this is the way they repay him. And to cancel him on the eve of the five year anniversary of Johnny Carson’s death was in my mind killing him twice.
At first I was in total disbelief and thought that this was only a publicity stunt to get more viewers to watch, but after watching Conan’s last broadcast on the Tonight show made it clear….NBC screwed him royally. They tried to make it seem like they were the good guys by giving him a severance package and a ban on appearing on his own for seven months.
I keep hearing that Fox want to have him but with Fox’s track record of cancelling good shows before they have a chance to flourish, I can’t help but worry for our pale faced redhead. I think if he would go to Comedy Central and work with Colbert for a while until he gets himself settled in would be a better idea. Or hell how about working for Howard Stern for a year, That would encourage many people to get Satellite and forcing NBC to hide in their proverbial closets and suck their thumbs while their walls around them come crashing down.
Now I am seeing the support that the fans are giving through facebook and all over the net. CNN and other new groups are claiming that the support won’t last. But I disagree. We are a strong group, and Conan will continue to shine.
Conan has stated that we should not be cynical; however it is quite hard sometimes not to be. I see people trying to capitalize on the loss of Conan. Their making t-shirts, signs, and even wigs of Conan’s hair. I even saw on e-bay someone is selling what is supposed to be an actual Triumph the insulting dog.
I just hope that Conan knows that he has the support he deserves from his fans. As a fellow nerd who laughed at all his jokes about nerds online and all his comic book references, I want to thank you for giving me the inspiration for going into broadcasting.
I hope the best for you COCO!!
It’s going to be a long seven months but I hope you take a nice long vacation to Ireland and kiss the Blarney stone for me!!
LOVE YOU ALWAYS! YOUR 1 BILLIONTH FAN.

Well peeps it's time for another installment of MY MONTHLY BITCHING.
I'm sure you all can guess that I'm about to bitch about my job. I have once again got into a position where I'm feeling like I was just hired until someone else comes along to do the job. Despite the many times I hear from the rest of the staff that they love working with me.
I have only been at my job for about four months, however I've already noticed the true colors of the management. I don't know why I have problems getting past the PART TIME position.
I have asked my boss why my hours are being cut. Being untrustworthy and flipping out on customers is a trait I never knew I possessed. Especially when I tend to be 20 to 30 minutes early for my shift, and as for the customers; there is always going to be a customer that will try to get out of paying full price for their product and will make a huge stink to the boss when they go home and complain about their recent visit to the store and how unfairly they were treated. You are suposed to smile and nod and take whatever abuse from them when they are doing nothing but yelling at you about the defective product you just sold them. (there's reasons why people bring guns into work)
No I'm not planning on going on a homicidal rage, don't read into my post that much. But I'm just saying there is a snapping point and believe me its not towards the customers at all.
I have shown the utmost respect for the people I work with and I expect the same in return, however it was brought to my attention today that respect comes with a price. Its my dignity.
I have never felt more ashamed, angry, and outraged as I have tonight. And for my own BOSS to show such childish behavior is mind boggling.
Yesterday I wanted to share my artistic vision with the world and I drew on the menu board a nice picture of our new Coffee (see above) It is a nice logo and I thought I did it justice.
I drew out the first part of it and I asked my manager and her minion what they thought of it. They both said it was nice. Then I was told to draw the crown part and I was more than happy to do it. I helped the customers and finished my job and after I was done work I stayed to finish the picture. I then showed the two the finished product and they seemed happy with it. OR SO IT SEEMED.
After I had left the store they told another guy to re draw the picture. He refused. Then what I am supposed to believe was an accident the minion spilled water on the chalk drawing. Giving my co-worker no choice but to re do the picture. They wanted him to be the fall guy for their stupidity. He was supposed to make up a cover story as to not hurt my feelings so they wouldn't have to explain to me the following day when I returned back to work. Like I wouldn't notice the picture had change.
Its at this point where I feel like I have no one to trust and I am supposed to be happy and smile while working with these people.
I'll take my chances on the grouchy customers thank you.
