Got Work?

Well, with respect to the job I mentioned in my previous post, I was given a call for a second interview but declined to go as I had also received a call from Open Text.

Open Text just happens to be minutes from our house verses the trip to Elmira, now it is just a matter of receiving a call for a second interview from them. I thought the initial interview went well, definitely better than the Monday 8am interview I had with Bend All Automotive, who actually posted the position again.

The temp agency I am registered with has also been giving me quite a few calls with opportunities and I hope that something permanent will come up soon, but I am just waiting in hopes of hearing from Open Text or winning the Super 7 draw, whichever comes first.

Third Time's a Charm?

Last week I had job interviews on Monday and Friday, this week I had an interview yesterday. It seems that I may have finally found something... it is with a family run business in Elmira, home of the Maple Syrup Festival. It is an admin assistant type job and I will provide more details if I happen to get some good news. :)

Too Much TV

I love TV...poor Ken... he at least gets some time to do some blogging while I destroy some brain cells.

Here's my schedule:


8:00:Fear Factor Couples or 7th Heaven (if ever both shows are new episodes the vcr goes to work, although I don't always watch the tapes)
9:00: Medium (this is a new show and I just started to watch it) or 24 (I don't know why they gave it this time slot, although I still haven't watched the tape of the 4 hour season premier... what was up with that)


The Biggest Loser
8:30: (this is taped when the The Biggest Loser is on) Degrassi: The Next Generation
9:00: The Amazing Race


8:00: Lost
9:00: The West Wing
10:00: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy


8:00: Survivor Palau
9:00: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
10:00: ER


8:00: Joan of Arcadia
9:00: Third Watch (I don't watch this every week and I don't tape it, I watched it faithfully when it was on Monday nights, not so much now... guess they were trying to kill it with such an terrible time slot)


8:00 am: Coronation Street
7:00: 60 Minutes ( this is more of Ken's show... I don't have to watch it)
8:00: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
9:00: Desperate Housewives

I do have a daytime show that I like to keep on top of and that's Days of Our Lives, I have watched this show since I was at least 11... I don't watch everyday, I listen to it during my lunch break on my car radio while I eat lunch, catching half the episode is about as good as watching the whole thing.

I have also been keeping tabs on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider lately since I am a sucker for Hollywood gossip, sorry Jen and Brad.

I admit I am attached to the couch from fall to spring but the summer is free and clear. (:

Another Day, Another Dollar

I am currently working temporarily, doing data entry, for a company called Agline/TI (they don't have much of a web site) which happens to be located in Cambridge.

Today was about the worst commute I have had, worse than some of the days of riding the TTC or driving to Hamilton. I left the house at 7:30, I start work at 8:30 but I like to leave earlier than necessary because you just never know what traffic will be it was like a nightmare. There was an accident on Hwy 8, the main artery to the 401, which is fine since I generally don't take that route to get to the 401 but due to the accident Hwy 8 was closed which meant every other alternate route was packed. I made the mistake of changing my course to try and find a better one and what ended up happening was I showed up at the office at 10:00 because the better route had me sitting in stop and go traffic for over 1.5 hours (it took me over an hour to go 1 km).

How much do I love being back at work... perhaps that question is best answered another day.

Hi Everyone,

Ken has been the long time blogger in our family and he suggested that perhaps I start one of my own....tada, consider it done. I joked that this might be the only way we'll communicate with one another but I am sure that won't be the case... right dear?

I am hoping to post something every day or so. I hope you will check in often and leave comments, I always like hearing from people.

I hope the new year is going well for everyone thus far.
