Since I missed doing this on the 19th, I'll plunk it here -- it's the month in review. I was, er, a little busy on the 19th. Today is a quietly hypnotic kind of a day, hen... Read more
I'm technically still unemployed. It's weird, but that's what's happening. The #1 place was waiting on a references check yesterday before extending a formal offer and they couldn't r... Read more
Man oh man how the world changes in 24 hours.
At 10:30 this morning I heard from the place that gave me the lousy offer. Since I had not yet heard from the #1 choice, I chatted w... Read more
Well, I got the offer from the loan out place yesterday, and it was less than stellar. In fact, it was lousy -- $1,000 less than I made at my last job and now of course gas (an... Read more
I think I'll be working soon.
I really do. No matter what, today I'm getting an offer so something is happening. The reason why I know this is because this is a company where you... Read more
Man, I'm bushed after yesterday. But why am I not sleeping? Because (a) a recruiter called at 9 and it was a good job so (b) I had to get online to email him my references and ... Read more
I know it was yesterday, but I got caught up with getting ready for my interview today.
Which reminds me, I really need to be getting ready.

Well, it's not a blazer, it's a jean jacket. And it fits! I can button it ALL the way, as in over my hips and everything.
I haven't been able to wear it that way for seven or eig... Read more
The Acela is about the greatest train experience you can get these days, at least in the East, and Mr. J and I will be taking it during the first week of July. I'm gonna make the rese... Read more
I'm close to my ticker goal of 60 lbs. off, so that led me to think about the 1960s. Georgy Girl is a pretty neat movie, and one of the interesting parts of it is that, hey, Lynn Redg... Read more
I love this song but can't find a good recording of it that isn't a thousand minutes long. Or at least it seems that way. No matter.
It seems that yesterday's faux pas was pretty... Read more
For the past couple of days, I've been going nonstop. I had a job fair yesterday but in the morning I met with a recruiter and then got myself to the fair. And it was awful weather, o... Read more
It's a frustrating day. Or, rather, a frustrating week. I lost .2 lbs. Now, yeah, I lost. But it was miniscule, in particular as compared to other weeks, plus I had inch gains for mos... Read more
Well, they may not be singing much. It is HOT.
But it's nice, everything isn't wilted yet which tends to happen after a few days of 90s. I'll see if I've changed my mind tomorrow... Read more
I had yet another job interview today. This one was in the 'burbs, with a place that's not really a traditional corporation. The two people who saw me were very nice and it may or may... Read more
