Gone Recruitin’

Me and my deteriorating body have made the trek up I-85 to Clemson, South Carolina to partake in Clemson University’s career fair.

I’m Starting To Think…
That I’ve done everything, well mostly everything, wrong. I know much of my genetic history and should have continued to take the precautionary measures I started nearly twenty years ago. I’m six days away from being poked and prodded inside a doctor’s office and have a feeling that this trip will lead to more and increasingly expensive, trips to “specialists.”

Any blame I can lay can be lain only upon myself.

I Wish I Had Remembered
I’ve once again forgotten that Clemson does not offer breakfast to the employers at its career fair. I’m already starting to get hungry. How am I supposed to be judgmental on an empty stomach? Anyone know if there is campus food delivery at Clemson?

This is the prototypical candidate that I’m seeking today.
Another Pretty Mark Wallace Tour Model
Of course she’ll also have to have an engineering degree.

What’s funny is that, though I find her attractive, I can hear those of you who know me well calling out “bullshit.”

Expect A “Stuck On The Connector” Entry Tomorrow
What was supposed to have been time reading, coding, and preparing for today was spent correcting a series of failures with Adobe’s Lightroom. My saga will be completely detailed as I have a night in a hotel room to write tonight.

    Well Duh, she’s gorgeous…but just because someone is attractive, doesn’t mean they are your ‘type’, which is what I’m assuming the BS comment is about πŸ˜‰

    I’m spending my day trying to figure out MS Access 2007…I’ve I mentioned I really don’t like Office 2007??

    Its never too late to make positive changes…

    We may need to go check on Barb. This is the second day without a comment πŸ™‚

    Have fun in Clemson, I don’t know why but I love that town.

  3. Martha says:

    Barb is okay, I chatted with her a bit ago, just been busy and feeling a little under the weather. Don’t worry, she’ll be back!

  4. WTF? My earlier comment never made it through!

    I’m glad that when I mention my concern about my health and that I probably will need to go see specialists that all it generates is concern whether or not Barb is okay. Love you guys…

    Oh, and she was pretty but she got a little help from yours truly. πŸ˜‰

  5. bob says:

    Sorry about that Paulie. I guess I just don’t want to think about you being sick πŸ™

  6. It’s alright Bob. Seriously, I don’t want to have anything wrong with me either it’s just I “feel” parts of my body that probably shouldn’t be “felt.” I suppose I’ll start to know in a week’s time.

  7. Barb says:

    I’m here – just nothing good im the content to make comments about…… πŸ˜‰

    And Paulie – I’m concerned about your health – you make me wonder about the “genetic history” – you are so cryptic…… give me some idea of what you think might be wrong.

    Been a little busy – Its end of the month for some shippers – craziness happens, all the sudden it has to be picked up NOW.

    Plus – we gotta buy a new washng machine – so been “researching” – and I gotta tell you, I really can’t figure out the differences – so we might just have to go flip a coin & buy.

  8. Been trying to be cryptic about my issues since I’ve not been to a doctor.

    Dad had a bad heart, pacemaker, high blood pressure. I’m “feeling” my chest, no sharp pain, but “feeling” something that hadn’t “felt” in the past. Hence the scheduling of a physical for next week and the concern that I’ll be making a return trip to specialists (I visited a cardiologist ten years ago but nothing than a “irregular heart beat that I probably had my whole life” was determined).
