    I am putting together my resume. I've just spent the last hour or so just composing the cover letter. I had no idea this was so very difficult. I certainly understand why there are people out there who are willing to pay others to build a resume for them.

    I also have a couple of hiccups to the business of getting employed, apart from having to build a resume. I don't have official transcripts, nor did I ever think to get references from anywhere that I had either been employed or had volunteered. And now that may hinder my chances of getting a decent job.

    If I am reduced to working at Walmart, I may just decide to stay poor. It's too bad there isn't a watery tart nearby with a scimitar in hand to grant me instant, supreme executive power.

    the resume only has to be good enough to get you an interview. So, put in something about being a shuttle commander at NASA, and that should make them curious enough to want to see you.

    Then, once you're in your interview, I find that waving a handgun around and saying you'd like to meet the boss' family really goes a long way in showing that you are really good about taking initiative, and you're devoted to the company.

    As for Wal-Mart, don't. Don't do it. You'll hate yourself in the morning. Just sell meth at the local elementary school or something. The benefits are the same, I think.

    Times like these,(a birthday a death and a job) I like to remember this quote.

    In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

    Thanks for the advice, and the sympathy. I can use plenty of both right about now!

    Well, it's fairly (read: REALLY) humid here. So, I take the watery, and I think you can handle the tart, so let's get lobbing!

    Soo Mi said...

    Beav, you do know the way to my, um, heart!

    It's pretty damn humid here, too. The kids won't even go outside. I don't blame them.

    Bob: the oven isn't coming along. I have to replace it, which is sad because it's actually only 8 years old. The last tenants really did a number on it.

    And yes, I'm going a little bit crazy at the moment. I make The. Best. Biscuits. Ever. Except that my oven is broken and I can't. GRRRR!

    I made chocolate chip cookies last night. They're so good.

    I'm sorry, was that teasy?
