You ever shoot a Russian unicorn?


Thursday, March 21, 2013

A Hot Pockets for 20 cents is a steal any day of the week. Not that I’ve had a Hot Pockets in a long time, maybe since I saw comedian Jim Gaffigan riffing on those things as pop tarts stuffed with nasty meat.

It’s just that Whoviangirl23 was on the verge of talking about glittery pink unicorns in her latest blog, and that sent my mind off on a Russian unicorn tangent, and gave me a pang, thinking of my dear friends Matt and Rene’, who claim this Bad Lip Reading version of a Michael Buble track as ‘their song’, because they’re awesome like that.

If you’ve got 4 and a half minutes to spare, go check this out right now, you won’t be sorry!

=========

To swerve directions a bit, I’m marveling a little bit at my change in fortunes over the past month and change, from being unable to get barely any response to resumes sent to jobs offering modest wages, to getting this opportunity at making a very decent number. Tuesday night, I had dinner with fellow employees of the company I was hired by, including a couple of manager types. One of the latter mentioned how he was presented my name as the person being hired for the position, and having to ask who I was. I told him it was just as funny from my perspective, filling out an application for the company after having already signed an employment agreement.

Yeah, I’m lucky to have landed here, I know that. I feel, in some sense, undeserving. Actually, in a lot of senses. But…while I’m here, might as well make the best of the chance, right? Make an after the fact justification, or something like that, so to speak.

    Don't be to hard on yourself! Of course you deserve your new job!

I'll have to make a note to watch that Russian unicorn video, but not the one about the hot pockets. Sadly, I still crave those sometimes...

    I literally just burst out laughing when I read this. I can't help that sometimes I think about unicorns!

On the other side though, seriously, don't feel underserving! You are given a great opportunity, now look in the mirror, and tell yourself I DESERVE THIS.

And then ride off to work on your glittery pink Russian unicorn.

    Why do you feel undeserving? Someone saw your app and they clearly weren't thinking about glittery pink unicorns. They had foresight and they liked what they saw and believed in you. ABSOLUTELY you may as well make the best of the chance. No after the fact justification required. They hired YOU for YOU Partha! Pretty cool that of all the lull you to sleep resumes that someone in HR read, YOURS you witty, pithy guy caught their eye and you were hired on the spot without an application even. THAT is serendipity. Now you can shine like a glittery pink unicorn if you like as you show them your stuff! You earned it now OWN it! Oh and no hot pockets. They are really no bueno bad for you. We need to get you into a bento box style of clean eating for all of your weekday on the road trips and a waterproof bag to hold your workout gear including swim trunks that can pinch hit as volleyball shorts for that pickup game you find, and some cable/cord thingies for in the room workouts when you don't have a hotel gym. You'll carry all of this in your handy dandy gym bag that you pack at the ready for said road trips. Make sure you have a playlist at the ready too! Did I already say You've got this? emoticon emoticon
