Wednesday, August 25, 2009....
Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past week:
Rave: I've noticed the time from resume to rejection or interview has shortened greatly. Initially, I was seeing 3 to 6 month turnarounds and last week, I submitted a resume on Friday and had a phone interview today.
Rant: In my opinion, I will not be getting this job. It is not because of my primary skill set or experience, it is because I don't have hardcore technical knowledge. Unless the hiring manager is willing to take a chance, which I get the feeling he's not from what the recruiter told me, I can kiss this job goodbye. On a positive note, the recruiter liked me.
Rave: Ipod. I love this invention. I love that when I do my 30 minutes on my awesome stationery bike that I can have my own karaoke/American Idol session. Best part, I suck, but I'm the only judge. Who cares if I don't know all the words, sing off key, it passes the time away.
Rant: Reading an 'okay' book. Ever read a book that takes forever. Your expectations were higher than what was delivered, but you can't put it down. You're hoping that with every new page, things will get better. I'm still waiting.
Rant: My arch nemesis, bunny, doesn't appear to be frightened of me. He will stand 5 feet away from me and continue to chew on my cucumber plant - WTH??? Shouldn't I appear as a giant to him? Shouldn't he be running? Nope. He just mocks me.
Rave: Space saver bags. Ya know the ones you see on the info commercials - the ones that reduce a king size comforter into a small package....Well, it works. Yay for me...This product gives hope to all people who live in very small Cape Cod homes built in the late 1940s.
Rave: Hubby returns from a 7 day fishing adventure with his brother. No fishing because of the hurricane, but no return of the husband because his brother wanted to stay where they were.
Rant: I have to clean my fridge out. I hate doing it, but the show Hoarders on A&E has motivated me to kick it into high gear.
Rave: Living and Loving LA bestowed this gem on me the other day:
There are things I need to do and will in a separate post - Thanks L&L LA!
