The stupidity of Texas.

Stat Troopers were confiscating maxi pads and tampons ahead of an abortion debate because thy might be thrown at legislators. Guns, however, were allowed with a carry permit. They were ultimately convinced to stop, but the simple fact that those items would have been consider a greater threat than a gun is enough to make me smile in a sad sort of way.

Save what you brush out of them and knit sweaters. It's both warm and creepy at the same time!

I used to have a long haired Alsatian, and one time I came back from leave to find the lady who'd being looking after her for me whilst I was away had saved the copious amounts of surplus fur and knitted something out of it, which, to be honest, sounded itchy to me, and sweaty dog ( I lived in the middle east at the time) is never going to be a fragrance you'd want to bottle!

Not sure if this belongs in the smile or the pissed off thread, but I'm going to go with the glass half full theory. The job that I had my first interview for - news on second interview/next steps has been postponed until end of July/early August due to a big event they are having, at which point they will "definitely get back to me". Sigh. I suppose not being ruled out is better than being ruled out.

I hope you're right. I may not need a new handbag, but I am really over this whole being strapped for cash the whole time thing.

Yeah, definitely better than a negative. Our lot tend to hum and hah for ages with new hirings, so I'm hardly surprised to hear other companies do it too.

Hang in there old girl.

My plan is to simply try and outlast all the other candidates in the patience stakes. Last one left standing, etc.
