So tell me a little bit about yourself . . .

Now that interviews A and B are over, I can breathe a little easier the rest of this week. Interview A went very well, I thought. However, as there are many candidates in line for that position, I have no idea where I stand. I'll know by the end of the week, though. Woooo. Interview B was merely a preliminary phone interview. It went well too. I haven't a clue whether they'll contact me again for a proper interview. Considering the rather low salary, I won't really mind if they don't get back to me.

After interview A, the Jenster and I went up to Chicago, where I bought two pairs of shoes. Let's just say, I had sore feet and there was little alternative. Right. We also hit up Lush and nearly bought them out. Or was it that we cleared out our wallets? Whatever.

P.S. I'm listening to a leak of Ben Fold's new album. It's allowed; Amanda Palmer posted the above link on her blog. Does "Brainwascht" sound a bit familiar? Yeah? Yeah? Hahaha. She should sue.

tis a shame

Too bad I can't sell my uterus on eBay. I really don't want it anymore.

This is me.

-The Great Below-
Extremely sensitive, you are still waiting for that one love to either return or come into your life for the first time. You know deep down that you're going to end up getting hurt again, but you're still hopeful.

Take the quiz.

Okay, so my hard drive crashed a few weeks ago meaning that I lost all saved passwords in Firefox etc. I haven't had any real trouble with this until just now. I wanted to sign in on flickr for the first time since the Crash of '08. I knew things would be difficult when the login page was actually Yahoo. Fine. No problem. I know my Yahoo password. Besides, this seemed vaguely familiar from before. I never really use flickr much, having only uploaded one photo so far and a crappy one at that. I tend to use photobucket (which I have had no problem logging into thank you very much). Right, so I typed in my Yahoo password and it wanted me to either A) create a new flickr (Huh? I thought I was logging onto my existing account. What is this shit?) or B) connect the Yahoo ID to an existing Flickr account. Obviously, I want choice B. So I went to log in and failed. Miserably. Over and fucking over. I'm pretty sure I know which email address I used, so it's just a password problem. Eventually, I gave up and had them send me my password, but it won't do that because it recognises that email as being connected to a Yahoo account, so I had to go through Yahoo's password bullshit. And THAT didn't work! It asked for month of birth and country and zip code. I typed all this in correctly and it said no. So I logged into Yahoo from the actual Yahoo site and saw that my profile was created when I was in college, so I tried it again using that zip code instead. Still a no go. I have absolutely no idea what the problem is. So I kept trying different months even though I know I never bother to fudge my birthday when creating accounts, just to see if maybe I did once, and Yahoo froze my account for 24 hours. Security. They assumed someone was trying to break in to my account. Yeah. Me. I can still log in to my Yahoo via the Yahoo account by the way, so whatever. So then I decided to try again at flickr. I must have tried every damn password I've ever used in the whole of my life and then some. Nothing worked. So I gave up and went with choice A after all and created a nice and shiny new account that is properly connected to my Yahoo ID la de da de da.

Here's the new one: Jessiqa
For nostalgia's sake: 13_GIR

Now I forget why I wanted to log on in the first place.

Edit: Fuck this shit, yet again. I'm just not a fan of Flickr. I decided to use Picasa instead.

typing while bored

So yeah, haven't been hanging around the blogosphere much lately. At least not my corner of it. Wait, spheres don't have corners. Gah, foiled again by my own foolish metaphors. So right now I'm in the midst of a couple of IM convos that I should end pretty soon and that I never intended to begin in the first place, but oh well. I need to go to bed here soon. I have to work early in the morning. All day.

Why is finishing a book always so depressing? I recently finished The Gum Thief by Douglas Coupland. Pretty good. I liked it. Now I've begun Gandhi's autobiography. Gah, I keep wanting to put the 'h' after the 'g' in his name rather than after the 'd'. Oh, well.

Let's see, what else is going on in my life? I randomly decided today to become more active on OrthodoXCircle. I've had a membership for ages, but rarely log on. Today I did and that's where these two IM conversations have come from. I should have known better than to log on just before bed. I still need to wash my face and brush my teeth. Yeesh. And I totally didn't do yoga today like I said I was going to do and totally had time to do, but didn't. I suck. C'est la vie.
