A Random List of Randomness

Hello My Little Seahorses.........

I don't feel like writing in paragraphs today my little sea creatures, so I will just spit it out in random sentences..............

1.) I got a call back from Mr. Esq's office this morning. They called me up to test me on my Spanish speaking skills. Law offices these days do not fuck around. If you write it on your resume, they will hold you to it. They will dig up your educational background, do background checks, call all your references and test your ability to speak the languages that you say you do. I mentioned a scholarship I got in college and they wanted to know how competitive it was. And this is an entry level position for pay that makes me want to cry. Remember when Ace Ventura in Ace Ventura Pet detective told his female client " Well, why don't you go cry about it, Saddle bags?" I feel like that woman. Not to mention that I do feel a little fat right now.

Anyway, they put a Spanish speaker on the phone and let me ramble on this morning. I was nervous and I know I got a couple of things grammatically wrong. I was called out of the blue while I was rushing to get to physical therapy and caught completely off guard. Anyway, we shall see what happens. I may or may not get it at this point. I know that their office has been flooded with resumes.

2.) I have an interview tomorrow for a volunteer position, a lawyer referral service. I am not going to sit around and let employers just sit there and reject me. While they are busy deciding if they are going to kick me to the curb or not, I may as well be doing something useful.

3.) My dad finally got my present in the mail. I bought him a two year subscription to Maxim. Delivered to his doorstep. Yes my loves, I am a twisted girl. You can thank my dad for that.

4.) Speaking of my father, my dad has an interesting way of showing me how much he cares. He doesn't call me "his little princess" nor does he shower me with hugs. Instead, he likes to embarrass me in front of family or he likes to gross me out. He usually opts for grossing me out.

I wonder what Thanksgiving will bring.

5.) I did a bellydance routine in September, and worked hard in practicing for it. I also spent $40 for the venue to make me a DVD. $40 dollars for my 5 minute dance. Such a rip off, but I had no other choice because they wouldn't let people film.

My DVD still hasn't arrived. I am miffed about that. But not all is lost, at least the pictures arrived. The picture of me in my heading was from that evening while I was dancing with my troupe.

6.) I have been getting calls from a restricted number lately, and when I answer, no one is there. Weird. I have no idea what is going on.

7.) Did I tell you that I love all my readers ? Because I do.................

Well my little fragile sea wonders, that is all for now............

Besitos !

I had a friend of mine once who worked for the state and was trying to get a promotion. She was highly intelligent, spoke fluent Spanish, and actually was Spanish. Yet she still had a difficult time passing the bilingual portion of the interview. Hell, I can't even speak proper English.

Yo ablo mui poco

I'm sure I messed even that up so don't laugh too hard.

The opposite of your lawyer/spanish test is Palo Alto High School hiring a baseball coach. One candidate said he started right field for Michigan for three years. Only one thing - he didn't. Doh! (He had hoped to teach the high school kids about integrity. Yeah, right...)

Good luck! Buena fortuna! Hasta la vista!

Will be expecting to hear the good news about your job.

When I used to box, the same kinds of characters were around the fights offering you recordings of your match. After the first couple of times I didn't get anything (after all, I was outstate and they'd never see me again, prolly) I stopped worrying about it.

Hope you post your pictures ... oh, and that reminds me ...

STOP answering that restricted call where no one answers you. If you have a voice mail/answering device, let THAT pick up that call.

Single women should not repeatedly answer a number that is restricted. For real. Stay safe.

Finally ... we love you too!!

Sehr witzig! Aber ich muss leider zugeben, dass ich "Maxim" googeln musste....hatte keine Ahnung!
Und jetzt bin ich natuerlih entsetzt! Ach und das ist meine Tochter!

Ich habe leider Bronchitis... :(

If you don't get the job, you should fart on Mr Esquire.....wait, you already did that. I'm fond of the old saying, "Fall 7 times, get back up eight times". So, just keep kickin', chicken ;-)

One more thing, ha ha ha . I got a drunken test last summer from a guy who thought I was his girl...well, I almost his ex-girl after some of my replies ;-)

Mac, you crack me up !

You need to update your blog.

I will update that blog, just as soon as I'm able. You see, I am in the process of purchasing a new (very old) home. My old house sold ( slightly before I thought it would) and the closing date keeps getting pushed back on the new place. Most of my 'puter things are in storage. I do most online stuff on this phone thingie. I'm not sure I could update very well from with this 3g crap......AND, you crack me up too :-)
