    A belated Happy birthday Huh! You didn't post early enough for me to wish it yesterday. (I was tempted to post yesterday anyway, but thought you might have decided to start skipping them.)

    Does having the whiny dude from Girls play the whiny bad guy in Star Wars count as a plot hole? I guess not, but is there such a thing as a cast hole? :p

    I wouldn't even know what she was in. Foo Fighters, Fugees, Spice Girls, New Kids on the Block, whatever, all sounds the same to me.

    And I never watch Pop Idol or The Voice of China or similar.

    I can hear this constant buzz in my home, at about 50 herz. It is driving me insane. I can sleep, but I won't feel fit when I wake up.
    No one else around can hear it. Just had two officers of the environmental service in my home, listening, measuring it. They confirmed the buzz. Thank Heaven, it's real, and not just in my head. It's the ventilation system on the roof of the new, adjacent building. Let's see if they are willing to work on a (costly) solution.

    So, I applied for this job at work I (of course) fell I am eminently qualified for. This is back in March. The manager sent emails out to everyone like a week after the req closed (3/29), saying that he was reviewing the applications and was hopeful that he would get all the interviews knocked out within the week.

    So I waited. And waited a little more. I sent a carefully worded email out on the 8th of this month, asking if he was still interviewing or had he already filled the position.

    I got a reply yesterday. So, ten days for him to tell me he's been busy but hopes to get all the interviewing done by the end off the month. He also asked me when I'd be available for an interview, which is nice, but he didn't specify whether this was to be in-person or over the phone.

    SO, I'm wondering how many days it'll take for him to make that decision and get back to me.

    Perhaps I am being unkind-- he's down at least one instructor, possibly two that I know about. He's got some kind of business he's dealing with regarding the FAA, which can't be fun at all... the man may genuinely be up to his elbows in crap.

    Still, will I want to work for a guy who seems to perpetually be a good week behind the power curve? Or perhaps I could leverage that into a quicker promotion by being able to help him catch up?

    Meh, gotta interview first and see what they are willing to pay me.

    Interesting... Dngrswife and I are watching Forensic Files on HLN.

    So far, we've seen advertisements for colon cancer screening and bladder control products, three allergy meds, a diabetes product that sounds more dangerous than the thing it's supposed to be treating, and several hospitals.

    Apparently, people who watch HSN are dying.

    LOL. In more ways than one.

    The only time I watch tv is when Dngrwife and I go on mini-vacays... this time it's Pismo.

    I'll get back at her-- a nice hike up a steep hill.

    In just over three weeks, this house has everything repaired, new 'wood' floor in living room, new ceilings, new pipes underneath, and more. It looks great, but I don't think I can move into it, now that it looks like it should sell at over 140K. After the commissions and payments, I should net over 20K in a month.

    Then I'll have to start all over looking for someplace to move into... or flip again.
