Bed Intruder

I have laughed about this song so many times that I have to post the ORIGINAL interview that it came from. From the kayaking trip having to hear it, to singing it myself, and from showing it to everyone I know.

Watch the original and let me know what you think.

Click it.

Outside of My Window--Currently

Outside of my window there is a man. Don't panic, it is not a burglar. My landlord is currently having our apartment re-pointed. In case you want to learn more, click here. Basically it means that they sand out the spaces of the bricks and then re-mortar them. It is loud and very dusty but it will prevent leaks in the ceiling and that is always a good thing.

Yesterday they put their ladders in my garden. Then they threw their tools down--not on, but toward--my plants. I let it go. I knew they had to do what they had to do so the apartment could be better. I also let go the fact that they knocked on the door at 8 AM asking to use our electrical outlets. Whatever, not really a big deal.

But today outside of my bedroom window is this. So now I am forced to write something. FORCED! I didn't have the camera in time to get the silhouette of the bent cigarette hanging out of his mouth, but I think this works. The best part of this is that there is a man outside of my window, and he is singing.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have a little songbird at my window. Who would have thought? I have heard verses like: "girls, girls, girls," "if you could only see me now," and "I see your fantasy, wanna make it a reality baby..."

I am trying to get a video of it, but CH does not have a charger for his camera and I am running out of juice. Being a creeper is hard work.

Creeping is how I like to start my morning, usually on Facebook, but now I am blessed by God, and I get to watch someone right outside of my window! I am loving every second of it. I don't know what is weirder: me sitting in my room, camera at hand, waiting; or the man singing random verses outside of my window. I am going with me being the weirder of the two, but I could be wrong.

Sharks

Shark Week: The Great Bites CollectionSharks are awesome. They are awesome killing machines. If I were a shark I would swim around and fuck shit up. My goal in life would be to eat people. That would be it. I would be a killing, eating machine. You want to fuck around with my ocean? You want to pollute and make little toys of my face? I will fuck you up.  I would be like swimmers, F-you. I'm going to eat the shit out of you. Come on in. Come in to this nice warm water. and then BAM. I am going to eat you all. You think you are going to beat me? Ha.. I swim all day, I don't sleep, I don't even blink. I lose a tooth, fuck that shit, it grows back. Once? Twice? Nope, those pointy teeth will grow back forever. SHARKS 10, HUMANS 0.
Beware. Go back to your pools. They are beneath you, swimming around, fucking shit up. I wish I was a SHARK.

Rejected.....

As we all know I am unemployed. My Nemesis recently called up and told me about a job that was available. I of course jumped right on it. I applied and scheduled an "OPEN HOUSE" day. I was nervous to go--so I made CH dress up and come with me. I defiantly have the ability, I have the experience, what I do not have apparently are the MATH skills.

After the Open House information session we had to take a timed test. The English was fine, the Math was not. I am sorry in five minutes I will not be able to do multiplication, division, and percents without a calculator. It won't happen. I know that it is a possible fault of mine but with student recruiting do I really need to know about math? It was like doing homework for 7th grade, but timed. I cannot do that, a fault of mine yes, but would that even be needed??

The job description states:


Recruiting students for our institute requires a customer-focused attitude, an ability to meet challenges head-on and a passion for changing lives through education. A college degree in marketing, business or related area is preferred or a minimum of 2 years direct sales experience in admissions, recruiting or other intangible sales.





Lets see... I have THREE years of marketing experience with Sam's Club, ONE year of telephone experience with CWA, THREE years of working with students at Clarion being a T.A., and finally doing some admissions work for Clarion.

But what got me was that stupid test. Now I am over it and not really bitter. CH got a call back and an interview. AWESOME. I am really happy about this because it will be better for both of us. And really it is only fair. Chris found CWA online and he applied then showed it to me. I got the call back from CWA he did not. Now I found a job and we both applied he got a call back I got............


Thank you for your interest in --------------. We sincerely appreciate your desire to become an employee of our company.


After reviewing your qualifications, unfortunately we are unable to consider you for the Representative position at this time. We appreciate your interest in ----------, and thank you for sharing your qualifications with us.


We wish you the best as you pursue your career goals.
Sincerely,
------------------

It is fine. Other jobs will eventually present themselves. What I am upset about and slightly irritated about is this. The woman who ran the open house knew that my Nemesis referred me. While this is great and she can ask about how I can do in a work environment, what she SHOULD NOT have done is told him that I, "REALLY BOMBED the test part."

That comment there is not only unprofessional, but can get someone in A LOT of trouble. That is what irritates me. If I do not qualify for the job fine, but do not reduce my attempt at it to that. Not cool. Not cool at all.

I like beans

My garden is overflowing with beans! I am very excited. I am getting some more peppers in too! So excited to make a garden party dish or something of the sort.

Any ideas?
