So yesterday turned out to be my last day of work at the Middleton store. I did get a transfer and I'm starting at the Janesville store in early June. I've essentially got a 3.5 week vacation.

I spent yesterday asleep. Got a couple boxes packed up today, currently having a fight with my resume edit, but I think I'll get that thing looking some form of presentable. Now taking a break and watching Star Trek and cooking dinner. Baked turkey, baked asparagus, and thinking of a couple potatoes to go with it.

Today was also the first day of CSA pick-up. I've been wanting to do one for ages, and decided this was the year. They do drop-offs in Janesville too and hopefully changing the pick-up point won't be a problem. But in my first box: green garlic, asparagus, potatoes, lettuce, spinach, rhubarb, and radishes. I told Jason if he picked up pie crusts and some strawberries I would make it worth his while. Jason LOVES strawberry-rhubarb pie. I'm rather fond of it myself. Plus PIE! Pie is always good. =D The box ended up being four bags worth of veggies for me to carry home, and I'm told this is the small box of the season. O_O I might start swimming in veggies later on this season. Good thing I know some preservation methods for most veggies. Plus I make a bitchin' salsa. Right [personal profile] chanter_greenie? ;)

Now I want pie. =P

Because I could use some love. Or just some nice random good thoughts. Sorry my posting has been sucking here lately.


Just had my phone interview with Knolls. As much as I don't want to move to NY, I am intrigued and will accept an in-person if they offer. Albany looks like a nice area, I think I'd be happy there. A bit curious that it would be the third state capital I'd reside in. =P Think my interview went well. The lab manager's about to go on vacation and did tell me I probably wasn't going to hear anything until October. O_O Hiring would probably take a long time too, because the job requires security clearance. Suppose my mission of avoiding getting arrested has been a good thing so far. Well, that's better than Sherwin. They told me I'd hear in a couple of weeks, and it's now been over two months and nothing. *eyeroll*

I need to go grocery shopping tonight. First I'm going to finish cleaning the kitchen and hunt down some food. Then I'm going to finish watching S1 of Veronica Mars...and probably start on S2. Maybe.

I'm thinking of switching my mood theme out. Still love TG, but getting a bit tired of this one. Not sure if I ever uploaded a VM mood theme, but that's the one I'm in the mood for at the moment. That should kill an hour or two of boredom if I go that route. Or maybe a Sherlock mood theme, that could be good too. =P

Ok, borked code has been fixed.

Job interview in Chicago on June 29th!

In other news, got sicker last night and had issues with breathing.

I really want this job.

Oooh, guess those promised thunderstorms are about to happen.

I love Madison, but if I have to leave this city for Chicago...I can live with that. I love Chicago. That would be perfect timing too...just when I was starting to get to know locals in this area and had actually made a friend or two! Not that I'd be too far from Madison.

Well so far switching my sleep schedule is not going so well. I'm taking longish staggered naps. I'm awake for about eight to twelve hours, then I go to sleep for about five to six hours. My last nap was at 6pm, woke up at 11pm, so I will most likely be up until Jason has left for work. When I will then go for another long nap, get up at 2pm, be awake until midnight, then know, I don't even care much about when I'm going to be awake or asleep next, so I'm honestly not sure why the hell I assume anyone else does.

Christmas was good. I made out with a 2TB external hard drive (knew it!) and a Red Wings long-sleeved T-shirt. They won tonight! I slept through the damn game, but they won! Woohoo! It's the new shirt, it's lucky! Plus it looks good on me. I wear red like a fucking champ. =) Jason got Shawshank Redemption, a new iced tea maker, hopefully one that doesn't leak all over the damn place, the Back to the Future movie set, and Lewis Black's new book. I also bought myself a tea kettle, Sherlock DVD's, and a book with a rather hefty Border's coupon I had. In addition to gifts, we did get a bit extravagant with the food. I seriously spent about four days just cooking, my two days off work, then as soon as my last day was over, I set up the kitchen to cook for Christmas Eve(which, strangely enough, has always been the big meal day in my family rather than Christmas Day). I know a few of you are into cooking and food, so the menu:
There be lots of food descriptions here, don't come in hungry. )

For this menu, cooking it all alone and in a tiny kitchen, a friend of mine elsewhere on the internets said I should be crowned the Queen Master of Christmas Cooking. Do they make a crown for that? Cause I'd totally wear it. I don't own a chef's hat. =P

I think Boxing Day's supposed to be some sort of shopping day? Yeah. Fuck that. I opted to sit on my ass on the couch being lazy. We watched Jason's new movie set before I went to take another 5 hour nap, woke up to watch today's new Top Gear which was pretty decent, then dusted off my weighted gloves and worked out for 25 minutes. Sweated my ass off and I think my stomach did protest one segment but overall, that felt good.

So...unemployed again. Got two applications sitting here I need to get cracking on...sometime later today. Jason made a run for Qdoba, and I've got some nachos sitting here that are not going down even remotely well. I destroyed two pairs of jeans at my job, so I need to go clothes shopping, something I really don't want to do at all. *sigh* Back to this grind.

Tis the new season, so I wrote recaps of Psych and White Collar. One I loved and the other...I did not. I don't think I'm going to post them to the communities. I said a few things in one recap that stand a good chance of hitting a few nerves.

Got the brush-off from Qdoba today. I really really REALLY suck at this. I seriously do not know what the fuck else I can do.

Got another office interview at Aerotek tomorrow. I'd try to think positively, but over the past 3.5 years, this particular agency has done nothing but waste my time. I've already done the office interview with this branch back in December. I have to give Jason a ride to Janesville tomorrow so I can have the car, but he'll have the company car for the weekend. Joy of joys. I will be running on coffee.

I can't remember the last time I slept more than five hours in a row. I seem to just catnap whenever I need it.

In other fun news, I fucked up my right foot sometime on Tuesday. Walking's a bitch.

I've been unemployed for two long fucking miserable years. I would take ANYTHING at this point, okay?

I will say that I'd probably have stuck out the jobs that made me fucking miserable a bit longer a few years ago if they had paid well...but they were miserable jobs with miserable pay. Long run, I vote enjoyable job w/ lower pay.

I normally don't hit up the writer's block questions, but there's two in a row. I had more fun thinking of loathsome TV characters to kill off.
meimichan: (Chem: chemistry is fun)
I've received two interview invites in the last 24 hours. O_O

So, guess what I'll be doing, aside from panicking and seeing if I have anything that fits the description of business casual(short answer, no, and I'm not wearing my lab-appropriate clothes; they look like shit). I usually go in business formal. I think someone made up the term business casual to confuse the living fuck out of me. It worked.

Jason's been banished to help desk for tomorrow, so at least I get the truck for tomorrow's interview. I'm bussing it up on Monday's.

Oh, tomorrow's is for Boumatic/PureLabs, and Mondays is for...THE STATE. =P They're both over on the east side, just off 51. Actually...really close to each other. Great, at least I won't get lost on Monday? When I likely will be using the goddamn bus?

Off to prep!

Something's gotta pan out soon. PLEASE something pan out soon?

I just got hosed by hiring freeze number three.

meimichan: (Default)
Phew! Got home at 9:30, spent the past 1.5 hours catching up on LJ. You know, there's more to read when I'm not refreshing the fucking page every so often. :)

Be forewarned, I wrote a LOT.

Fuck Michigan. No seriously, FUCK Michigan. )

My aunt seems to be doing okay, thank goodness. )

And meanwhile, at my brother's place... )

And now, the end is near...who clapped? )
