Just finished a job interview. My fingers are crossed. Now shoveling sushi down my throat because I haven't eaten all day from nerves.
So.. Your review made you start looking for another job again?? :o

Maybe the evil boss was "that" straw.

Indeed. Basically my job isn't what it was when they hired me. I was hired for a position they were forced into creating by a consultant and they don't understand what I do and don't seem to care for the internet, advertising outside of house ads inside the paper, or social networking. So they're trying to transition me into sales (that's the vibe I'm getting). I don't do sales, so I'm looking elsewhere.
Man! That Sux!
Well, Best of Luck Yet Again! ;D

Yeah, good luck, Courtney. Also, APGIL shares your affliction when it comes to job interviews. He gets the nervous tummy and can't eat anything until after the interview is over.

I hear ya, Courtney. I don't do sales, either. Just don't have that gift of gab (i.e., bullshit). Good luck on your search for another job. I could use another vocation myself, come to think of it. I swear, I'm just going to go postal on one of my dumbass managers one of these days if I don't.

See I do have the gift of the gab, I just don't feel motivated by the idea of making sales.

Sadly that's the majority of job opening these days.

Hmm... I have no problem lying to people who don't know any better. How does one get into this "sales" occupation? "Well, I can't tell you exactly why the Chevrolet is better than the Plymouth, but I do know the Chevrolet is the superior product."

Watching the Simpsons movie and updating some of my DVD covers.  Wooot

Don't you mean woohoo? Nice to see someone else gets some replay value from the Simpsons movie.

That's me too. I just don't like it and don't want to do it, and it pays for shit (took a $17k pay decrease taking this job that isn't what I was hired for). And I have another interview today that I REALLY want so if I don't have to do something I don't want to, I won't.

Already employed with multiple interviews lined up? What alternate universe are you living in?

I know, right?  Is the economy fixed and they just haven't really told us yet?

Tell me about it. Why else would I have been at Wal-Mart for 7 months? God, has it been that long? Someone shoot me now.

Currently chillaxin after a successful morning buying that 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport with a bad transmission for $500, getting it towed to the DMV for the title transfer (and the DMV rep didn't even walk outside to match the VIN like they're supposed to ??? ) and getting it dropped off at the transmission shop.
They'll start on it first thing Monday morning 8)

I'm currently preparing some dinner (Veggie-Grilled Chicken Sandwich & Beer-Battered Fries), creating an ERD for a database class, Goonies is playing in the background, and looking forward to taking a nap in a couple of hours.

Waiting for the mail, which should have my Simpsons Season 20 on Blu Ray. Then probably watching a few episodes.

Ah and here it is. Wow, this is ridiculously barebones. Not even an episode guide, just a list of them. Hopefully they re-release it in the right order with much better packaging.

Watching the local weather radar with all the moderate cold rain that is falling and will continue to fall the rest of the day :-[

RVR, everybody, the only man who watches the weather channel recreationally.

At least he can claim recreational usage of the Weather Channel....  I have to watch it to see where my next job is going to be!  I know people think it's strange when my co-workers and I start cheering for the hurricane/blizzards/etc.  ;)
