Random stuff

Here are a few of the random things going through my mind.  It has been a crazy week, and there are just a few things I’ve bookmarked to talk about.

Part I: Update on the week thus far:

So this week has been interesting.  Never been unemployed before, never had to find another job right away–it was always something I could take my time with and not rush into anything.  Thus far I have managed to stick to my self-imposed requirement of five contacts/resumes out per day, and some of it has paid off.  I have had several ‘networking’ meetings, and I had my first interview today.  I am vastly overqualified for it, and he recognizes that I am vastly overqualified for it, but who knows.  Not what I want but it pays well and we can see what might happen with that.

So in addition to the five-a-day rule I have also seemed to be visiting a lot of people this week.  I spent Saturday at the movies with the girls, Sunday at the movies with the girls, and saw the girls briefly at Taco Bell on Monday before having dinner with my nana.  I saw my great friends R&C on Tuesday afternoon and spent the afternoon watching movies and catching up.  (For the record, C picked Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay for our first movie, and R decided to go for the uncut version.  Attend a frat party.  The beer’s usually free and you’ll have more fun.  Dumb, dumb movie!)  Wednesday was supposed to be my first day at home to do laundry and stuff, and instead my neighbor called around 1230 and said come swim in the pool.  We took a break around 330 to get some food, call B to come over for a cookout, etc., and then stayed out until after 8.  I was sunburned, my sides hurt from laughing, and I had a great time. Thursday after the networking meeting I had an invite to go to my cousin’s house.  I hadn’t seen the house yet or the baby since he was born, so I went.  Stayed six hours, had a great time catching up with my cousin’s wife.  Today I had an interview, then my friend H had free tickets to go see Guys and Dolls at the Empire Theater.  That was probably one of the best productions I have seen locally in a long time!

The good thing is that Continue reading

As much as I love Joshua is as much as I am annoyed by Mary

And that’s a lot.

I am absolutely immersed in So You Think You Can Dance.  I have watched since Season 2, and it’s the water-cooler show for the girls here on the second floor at the office.

I love Mia Michaels and her ‘earthy’ style of choreography, I love the addition of Tabitha and Napoleon this year and their ‘lyrical hip-hop’ routines, I love that Doriana Sanchez thinks that disco and the hustle (which are admittedly difficult when done properly) deserve their proper place among the foxtrot and contemporary despite how cheesy they look.  I think that Tyce is hit or miss, I that Nigel is very well versed, and I think that Mary is extremely talented and full of great advice but needs to shut her yap on occasion and stop with the screaming.  It drives me nuts.  Be complimentary.  Have a shtick.  Just don’t do it at twelve decibles.

That being said, ohmigoshhowawesomewerejoshuaandkateelastnight?????  Continue reading
