You Win Some, You Lose Some

I hope that I am wrong, but I might have to put yesterday’s interview in the “L” column. Dangen! If my gut feeling is correct about this I may be going away for awhile to clear my head.

Here’s A Winner
I finished on top this week in the Yahoo! Pick’em Pool. I am still in sixth place overall, hopefully I can rise through the ranks during the second half of the season.

I’ve already placed all my bets for this week’s play, just in case I wind up somewhere with great cycling but no internet access…

File Under: But I Don’t Wanna
I need to go through all of the paperwork that the former employer, and all of the insurance/finance people associated with them, have sent me over the past two weeks and figure out what I’m going to do with my life in regards to health care, life insurance, retirement planning, yadda, yadda, yadda. Given that I’m uncertain about what my next step will be I need to put a few temporary stakes in the ground until I figure some shit out.

Some people have comfort animals, I have comfort beer.

After my interview I drove over to the Lucky’s Burger and Brew in Brookhaven to lick my wounds. I was hoping to drag Hank out with me but he was doing something productive and couldn’t come out and play. A couple of Star Hill IPAs and a mound of tater tots covered with chili and I walked out with my tail between my legs and drove home.

I’m Set For At Least A Half Year
Yesterday in Costco I bought a package of twenty-four rolls of toilet paper. Assuming that I use less than a roll per week I am now set for the next six months! Of course, I may hate this brand of toilet paper, in which case you better watch out because somebody may TP your house. In the likely event that somebody TPs your house now that I’ve mentioned it, I am going to start working on my alibis.

I’ve Come To Hate Squirrels
While I am fairly certain that they’ve not found a way back into my attic I hear squirrels scampering across my rooftop. I need to get out and knock down the bushes/trees nearest the house in the backyard that they are using as a part of their super highway between trees. With no job I should have some time this week, maybe I can accomplish that task this week and feel somewhat productive.

Have a good day friends.

    What happened in the interview that makes you think it didn’t go so well? Interviewing is totally the pits, that’s for sure. And I imagine it’s been quite a while since you’ve done it. Maybe it went better than you thought. 🙂

    As for the TP….if you don’t like it? Sounds silly, but gift it away at house parties! (If at least it’s individually wrapped within the big package) I’ve done that at a few recent ones in addition to my “bring a dish” because, hey. Everyone can use TP. And when you have a house party of a couple dozen people, they use yours up pretty quickly!

    So I learned today there’s to be a candlelight vigil at the Murder Kroger Thursday night at 8pm (it officially closes Friday) and hells YES I’m doing that. Imagine the photo op! 😀 Anyone want to join me? I’m thinking maybe Cameli’s for a beer beforehand (it’s in the same parking lot).

    Yeah, I’m with Stacy. Unless you know for sure you incorrectly answered the technical questions, or didn’t know what the hell they were talking about, just relax.

    A new picture from my favorite canine artist was posted on some social media site. He is one strange piece of cheese.

    I had to exercise last night and it turned into a solid half hour on the trainer. I was afraid the kitties would come to investigate all the spinning wheels and panting, but they kept their distance.

    We may have a home for Gus. An officer from Ft. Benning came up for a ride and she really liked him- even though she fell off! She said she had done PT in the morning (army speak for work out, not physical thearapy) and the “kids” couldn’t keep up. Hooah! This would be a lease with possible sale- at least he gets off the payroll.

    Relaxing, but don’t have the warm-fuzzy feeling that I had last week. I had a hard time articulating answers yesterday. I’ve interviewed (and failed) twice in the past three years, and I have *that* feeling today.

    Still find it strange that Murder Kroger is closing after renovations were done not that long ago. I know that money talks, and that there be a Kroger at the bottoms of the new building, but still…

    Good luck with Gus, Steve.

    I need to get an exercise in today…
