I got a second interview! Wish me luck!

I had an interview today, set up through my temp agency. I think it went pretty well. They had me do a lot of assessments. The agency says I should know whether or not I get a second interview within the week. Wish me luck.

I would tell you the name of the company but at this stage of the game I think that would be premature. I think I can tell you that it’s a rather large, well-known, and respected printing company which is setting up a new customer service call center. They are in need of people like me, and I hope they see I am the person for the job.

PS Don’t forget to pray for my Mom.¬† ūüôā

After the news I posted last night, I needed a bit of cheering up. Boy did I get it! Thank you Aunt J! As I write this I still have goosebumps from Susan Boyle’s performance on Britain’s Got Talent. The tears have just now gone away. I love how she turns the audience around from the first note. In the first verse she is already getting a standing ovation. Wow! Good on ya, Susan!

My mother, whom I love dearly,¬†had some tests run and it turns out they found some cancer in her colon. She’s already had colon cancer once, so this is a bit worrisome. The good news is that they believe they got it all, that it is non-invasive. Still, we’re accepting any and all positive thoughts and prayers. Please feel free to leave¬†comments with your well wishes. She does read my blog from time to time.

Here is some advice from my mother herself, which I intend to follow just as soon as I get some insurance:

…¬†having a colonoscopy routinely but you should also think about asking your physicians to add a CEA to your list of annual blood work. And please, please, please talk to your children. Anyone over 30 especially 40+ [with a family history of cancer] should have a colonoscopy routinely. If you have a history of polyps it should be every year otherwise it is believed every 3 years is acceptable.

I love you, Mom.

Sending hugs and positive thoughts,


With a twist you’ll never see coming.

This was said in a TV spot tonight, for a movie¬†which will remain nameless. Normally I’d say the name and provide links to IMDB and the official movie site. Not this time. Why? Because if you haven’t seen this ad, I’m sure you’d appreciate ACTUALLY NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE THE TWIST COMING. Thanks to this ad my brain will be thinking all through the movie, “Ok, they want me to think this, which means this is probably going to happen.” The ending will be more wavy than twisty.

Thanks, Aunt R for sending this to me. What a great video. And thanks ggdd727 for posting it on YouTube! Don’t you just love it when you go to the train station and a music video breaks out?

Happy Easter to those of you celebrating this particular holiday. I admit it’s mostly just a special day for family to me, rather than a religious holiday, but it’s a special day nonetheless. If you don’t celebrate, do have a wonderful Sunday.
