friday update and rondom facts

the good news is it’s friday, i got my hair done yesterday and it looks awesome, i’m drinking a skinny cinnamon dolce latte from starbucks and i didn’t have to pay for it, and i lost 1.2 pounds this week (despite thanksgiving) putting me back into the very high end of my maintenance range.

isn’t that nice? the bad news is that i emailed a company i’ve has five yes FIVE interviews with and they informed me that they’ve hired someone else. this isn’t the same company as the interview i had earlier this week, by the way. but i’m really disappointed... what a bummer. i really thought they would offer me a job, too. :(

tonight i am going to a girl’s sleepover? isn’t that fun? although last time this happened some boyfriends came... lame! guys should not come to a girl’s sleepover. maybe they get some sort of thrill about raiding a girl party... i don’t know.

in other news, both fitting back in and vanessa tagged me to share some random facts about myself, so here we go:

1) i lived in leeds, england for ½ a year in university. i loved it there, although i was very homesick.
2) one of my very favourite movies is the secret garden.
3) i can’t eat whipped cream because it gives me horrible stomach pains and (shhh) gas.
4) yesterday i went to the library and randomly picked up a book on tape (cd). now i am obsessed with it. i put disc one onto my mp3 player and listened to it on the transit last night and this morning. and then this morning i listened to ½ of disc two on the way to the suburbs. the book is “light on snow” by anita shreve and it’s so good. it’s about a 12-year-old girl and her father who live in the middle of nowhere and find a newborn in the woods. the voice reading the book isn’t annoying at all. i was worried that it would be too slow, but it’s not.
5) this morning i saw a dead bird on the sidewalk, outside of my boyfriend’s apartment. it looked like it just fell out of the sky. it was on it’s back and it’s legs were sticking up rigor mortis-like. maybe it was an omen about not getting the job. and then my mom said there is a dead cat in the alley (beside the building).... weird!
6) this one will actually be about me. i like being very efficient with my time. this is probably why i hate driving... because i hate sitting in traffic. i don’t mind transit, because i can be reading and that’s a worthwhile thing to be doing. i like to get the most amount of things and stuff done in the shortest amount of trips.

happy weekend everyone. i’m going to resist the twizzler straws!

I want to see the hair!

Boo Hiss about that stupid ass company - 5 interviews and no offer that is really rude!

I love The Secret Garden - such a good movie!

Vanessa said...

Sounds like you're having a good day! Sorry to hear about the job though :(

I loved The Secret Garden :)

Okay, first of all, that SERIOUSLY sucks about the job...why interview so many times if they are not going to offer...maybe they will think of you if they have another position open...

I love hearing new things about you!!! You live an interesting life!!!!

I just LOVE Anita Shreve! I've read all of her books. Have you read (or listened to) the Pilot's Wife? It is wonderful! I suggest picking that up next!

Hate that about the job :( That company needs to seriously revise its interview process - that seems unfair to interviewees and time consuming for interviewers - i'm sorry!

Ha- the girls sleepover sounds fun! But yes- way lame on boys being there - not cool - hope you could resist the twizzlers! ha!

I love the Secret Garden! That books sounds good.... interesting! Weird on the bird... and cat... odd! I hear you on the 'multi-tasking' - when I leave the house, especially on the weekends, I want to get as many things crossed off my list as possible. :)
