[Comments] (6) Job Search: This week I have been working (temp job) at a fancy desk in a fancy office in a fancy building in a fancy neighborhood. How fancy, you ask? The fancy plant in the bathrrom has plant-green hairclips holding it to the stick. I'm supposed to take 1 hour lunch (blah! how about ten minutes?) so today I wandered across the road to the Sur La Table I noticed, because I know Rachel loves that store. It seemed like a cross between Williams-Sonoma and Bed Bath and Beyond. You can go to a sushi-making seminar for only $85!

Anyway, I am being the receptionist and I basically sit there and stare into space. There are barely any phone calls. Today I actually spent 2 1/2 hours making booklets. It was great. I don't have a computer or anything, so there's very little work they can give me. However, the office does have two flat screen TVs so I can watch CNN in stereo all day. By the way, this place is marketing a cancer cure... No really.

I am making a yummy dinner for John- chicken fingers, cheddar-biscuits and brown sugar carrots. Unfortunately, he called to say he won't be home until 8. It's too bad I wasn't together the last two days when he got home when he said he would. I'm glad we are busy though- it keeps things interesting. This week I have learned that if we don't go to the pool, we never have time to sit and talk! Of course, John's first CPA exam is on Saturday and I've been busy too.

I've had a ton of interviews. How do I interview when I'm working at a temp job? Good question. I had an interview at 7 AM today. It was great, but I got stuck in a ton of traffic afterwards, trying to drive from Tustin to Newport Beach- through the business center of the OC, merging onto three different freeways. Duh. I shoulda seen that one coming. Anyway. Most of the interviews I've had don't interest me, but a few have and I think I have a good chance. The temp agencies I registered with (they thought they had a good job opening for me) were all very impressed with me computer skills scores. The job market is definitely better here. I will be settled into a job I love soon.

Yay, my biscuits are done. In with the chicken fingers.

Basil Update: I have sprouts! I just peeked outside and there are little splotches of green things coming up in my pot. I think maybe I planted a lot of seeds...
