Not My Usual Weekend Wrap-Up.

I've been very inactive on the old interwebz for most of this week so I'll forego my usual weekly recap and just fill you all in on what's been going on here with me.

- It's been just about a week now since I lost internet access at home. Since we moved here we were fortunate to have free internet courtesy of the landlady (she provides free wi-fi access to both her tenants). While I've been busy cursing the ISP for the problem (they're the usual culprits so it's natural), it turns out it was actually the doing of our landlady. Seems she forgot to pay the bill before she took one of her frequent trips overseas, and the rest... well... you can figure it out. She assures us it'll be sorted out on her return at the end of the month. Hey, at least I get to bust this out again:

Which basically sums up how I feel about being unplugged.

- Due to my insane week of internet free living and employment hopes, I had only one post on Sprocket Ink which was on Tuesday. If you missed it, be sure to check out it out. Another dad of the year contender has just emerged and he's ready to fight for the top spot.

- Regarding the job hunt, I had the follow-up interview with the newspaper on Thursday. They say they have an opening for two reporters and have narrowed down their choice to three top contenders. And I'm one of them. They're being very cryptic, but they did say that things were looking good for me. I'll know by the middle of next week. I really hate suspense. You know that?

The other interview I was supposed to have on Friday was postponed. They'll call me back when they're ready to reschedule.

Okay! This one is really funny. For those of you who have been here long enough, remember the job I used to have? The one where I was fired, then promoted, then had the position I was promoted to declared redundant? They called and asked me to come back to fill a temporary position for a few months. I'm not kidding!

To be honest, I'm not sure how I should  respond to this. I don't know whether I should laugh or cuss uncontrollably. I may just do both. Either way, I don't think I'm quite desperate enough to willingly go back to (former) Bossman's and Bosslady's clutches. Even if it is just temporary.

Life's just too short, you know?


  1. Sounds like something somewhere is going to work out for you. So pre-grats in that aspect.

    But wow... messing with your hopes much?

  2. Oh wow I think your ex bosses are a comedy show.

    Keeping everything crossed for your job answer.

  3. Isn't it fun when people play suspense games with your life?

  4. @ Lost: This is actually par for the course for me. I believe the universe in general enjoys messing with me.

    @ Nubian: Yeah. All they're missing is a laugh track.

    @ dbs: Oh yeah, it's a hoot.

  5. Don't go back. You're potty time has finally changed from public access to pay per view and you just can't go back now.

  6. @ Nari: Don't worry. When they call back to get my final answer I plan to tell exactly just where & how far they can shove that temp job.


Go ahead, say it! You know you want to:
