A Nose Update — Among Other Things

Wow. Ask and you shall receive. Thanks for the nose blowing toddler tips. I’m happy to report that Aidan is doing better now, but the last few days were rough. In addition to the nose, he had bronchitis and an ear infection — again. The poor kid has missed five days of pre-school this year. He missed two last year. Tis the season, I guess.

So a friend and I had a men’s day today (Thursday). We took the day off and headed to one of the local casinos for some black jack. Had a great time playing, but I’m sad to say that neither of us won. Can’t beat it though. Good times.

Christmas is sneaking up. Yikes.

Part of the reason I needed the day off today was being tired from interviews for Molly’s vacated position. What, you haven’t heard?!

I’ve talked to seven people so far this week, and will talk to three more Friday. Here’s a tip for you job seekers. If the person interviewing you asks if you have any questions, make something up. Don’t sit there and be like, “Um, no, I got nothin’.”

First of all, that’s my line. You aren’t allowed to use it! Secondly, look like you’re interested — please! Ugh. There are some promising candidates, don’t get me wrong. But I was shocked when two people didn’t ask a damn thing.

DVR is backing up. Thank goodness this one holds 100 hours! The fun part is that we’re recording some of the classic Christmas shows for Aidan. “I’m mister heat miser, I’m mister sun….”

I still owe you guys a couple of things, including an Erin update and the ABC blog.

Stick with me. I’ll have it soon enough. But for right now?

I got nothin’.

  1. Day off! to go to a casino? wow! good for you! I stopped by looking! i am glad you were out and about! It will be hard to fill those fashionable shoes of Molly’s! I think i need a vacation just to watch all the backed up stuff on my DVR! Peace

    Nothing beats Karloff and Seuss! I think it is on this weekend. Maybe your heart will grow 3 sizes if you watch it!

    I hate when the interviewer asks if I have any questions! I always blank. The questions come after I’ve left. And any other questions I have are more appropriate after the job has been offered.

    You do still have a DVD player, right?

    Check your inbox for two great links I think you’ll want to share with your readers.

  5. Molly says:

    OK in their defense, did I ask any questions? I always feel put on the spot too. But to sit there all duuuh is not OK either.

    You probably don’t want to hear about my new chair, huh? It’s huge and squishy and heaven.

  6. You’re off today?! Geesh. Lucky. Although gambling? Yuck. I’ve gambled twice in my life and only ever played penny slots. I lost $10 total though and I still get pissed when I think about it.

  7. Emily says:

    Before an interview, I ALWAYS think of questions I will ask. And I think of about 5, so that I am covered if some have been answered already.

  8. I am glad Aiden is feeling better 🙂 I think only idiots go without questions when it comes to interviews – you have to come up with SOMETHING!
