I heard back from three of the jobs that I applied for the day after I applied for them. I set up interviews for Wednesday and Thursday. It turns out that they were all people-pusher sales positions heavily disguised, and that two of them were even sister companies. This, among other crappy things that are going on, prompted this conversation with Alan.
Karen: I hate people, you know?
Alan: Yeah, me too.
Karen: The funny thing is, you hate people because you don’t understand them; I hate people because I do.
I cancelled all three of the interviews. Jen invited me over and we had a Johnny Depp marathon to cheer me up. We watched Benny & Joon, Chocolat, Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and From Hell. That’s a helluva lot of movies. I hadn’t seen Chocolat before, and I wasn’t aware of Johnny Depp’s lack of appearance in it (he’s only in the movie for like a half an hour but he’s on the cover), so that was disappointing.
I’m still crocheting my scarf. I don’t know how it’s going to turn out, but at least I’m crocheting straighter than I was. Maybe I’ll pick up some of the nice chenille yarn for my next project.
Yesterday I had dinner at Renee’s house. We had salmon; it was good. She’s still working at the pool and her school doesn’t start for another couple of weeks. Jen got her job at Petsmart, and today is her first day. I think she’ll enjoy that. In the meantime, I have nothing to do.
The computer I’m building for my cousin is all here, sort of. See, the case arrived a couple of days ago, but it’s broken, so I have to send it back or something. I don’t really understand how the front panel is supposed to be held on, but I do know when plastic cracks where it is not supposed to. I blame the shipping. The only thing is, since it was backordered so bad (and since so many people ordered them), most of them may arrive damaged like this one, so it may take forever and a half to get a replacement. In the meantime, I’m wondering if I should hook all the hardware up independent of the case to make sure they work.
Feeling: At least I’m not as depressed as two days ago.
