In Which It's A Giant Load Of Shit

I fully admit to having stayed away from here because I had a follow up interview to the law place and it was horrible and I didn't really want to talk about it.
Also, come to find out, I was actually sicker than I thought I was (according to the doctor) and so that's been really fun.

The short version of that follow up interview is that, well, I had a follow up interview with the owner of the law firm and it ended up being horrible. He asked me all sorts of inappropriate and fairly illegal questions. How do I know they're illegal, you might ask? I googled them.
Seriously. Like, all of them come up on loads of websites.

Anyway.

I answered all of his questions, mostly because I didn't really know what else to do. Had I been thinking straight, I would've been all "Listen jerk, I'm not answering this because it has absolutely nothing to do with anything and so move on".
But I didn't.
So the interview ended and I went home and felt vaguely dirty and told my mother about it and she was frothing at the mouth. Shara was not thrilled and if Andy was upset, he didn't say anything. Actually, I never got a read on how he felt on the whole thing, whether he thought I was stupid for answering or it was a trick or if he was mad at the guy or what.

Shara helped me craft an e mail that basically said "What the fuck?" in business and polite terms. In response, I got a whole lot of bullshit about protecting the company from unscrupulous people and crap like that.
Give me a motherfucking break.

That whole episode was a giant load of shit.

All I have to say is, thank Christ above I leave for vacation this week. Disneyworld and then the TCM Classic Movie Cruise. I honestly cannot wait.

Achoo

The weather here has had the nerve to go and change to something resembling "Fall".

Frankly, I'm offended. For the last few weeks before we've been lucky and it's been ridiculously nice. And when I say nice, I mean like, 70+ degrees everyday. This means I've been riding my bicycle everyday around the neighborhood, since Andy made me bring it home with me. At first I kind of thought he was being a bit silly. But with the weather being so agreeable, I couldn't help but take it for a spin.

But now? It's overcast and rainy and bullshit. And over the weekend I think we have a frost advisory.

I had a few interviews earlier in the week and I fully admit to having high hopes for them. I've gone and made the tragic error of getting my hopes up for one of the jobs. I think I'd be good at it and it would be interesting.
Needless to say, they haven't called, written or sent a carrier pigeon. I'm doing my best to not be completely distraught, but it's not going well. I've developed a bit of a cold instead and that's currently serving as an admirable distraction.
