And believe me, it’s not helping my “shy bladder” to relax.
I had an interview for a seasonal job this morning. Part of the hiring process is having to do a drug test, which is fine…except for the fact that my bladder basically shuts down when it has to work on command. I’m like, “Really, bladder? You can wake me up five times a night to pee, but now when I actually need to pee you’re just gonna sit there and laugh at me?” Since I wasn’t able to provide an adequate sample, I have to sit in this room with the creepy dummy while I drink water attempting to convince my body it can do this.
-So, I spent the better part of today with my parents making the videos for both Monday & Tuesday’s blog entries. I’m super excited for all of you to see them, and hope that you all have as much fun watching them as we had making them.
-How about more snow pictures? I took a bunch of photos on Thursday after Draco had finally finished it’s work here. So, here’s what I took:
-I’m back doing job interviews. I’d forgotten how much I truly hate job hunting. It’s so incredibly stressful, and I have a terrible time judging whether an interview has gone well or not. I went to an interview on Wednesday, and got a call on Thursday asking me to come in for a second interview on Friday morning. At the end of the second interview, I was asked to sign the paperwork to have a background check done, and to also do a drug test. The background check was no biggie, but not unlike others in this world, the whole peeing in a cup thing is just not the easiest thing in the world for me to accomplish. The task proved impossible yesterday, so I found myself back trying again this morning (the place I’m doing this for is a lab, so the testing is done on-site). My mom, knowing that I have always struggled with the whole bladder not cooperating thing decided to encourage me by quoting Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory episode about the ring from Lord of the Rings. Basically, Sheldon does this whole bit about “Waterfalls…Leaky Faucets…Peeing!” in an effort to make the other guys have to pee. Normally, this sort of thing doesn’t work on me, but when my mom was yelling it at me as I was getting out of the car it certainly seemed to help. So, I guess I can say that Big Bang Theory helped me pee in a cup. Now, I’m just hoping to hear from the job that they want to hire me. The gal who gave me my second interview told me that the background check and drug test weren’t a job offer, but I know how both things are expensive, so I’m thinking that they’re at least seriously considering hiring me since they’re going ahead with the checks.
-I think I’m coming down with a cold. Not my idea of a fun way to head into Christmas.
-Saw The Hobbit in the IMAX 3D yesterday. It was so stunning! Plus, I found that the second viewing was even better than the first. I still hated to see it end. It’s going to be a long year waiting for The Desolation of Smaug.
-Am I the only one who cried when “The Hobbit” started and we all got to return to Middle Earth?
-Why do dragons automatically make a story better?
-Why is peeing in a cup so difficult? Follow up, is this TMI?
-So, are they going to “kill” Spock off in the new Star Trek film, just like they did in Wrath of Khan? Follow up, if that happens who is Spock going to implant his’ katra in? If he doesn’t leave it with Bones, maybe Uhura? Does that qualify as Spock throwing his katra around?
-Who else is ready for winter to be over?
-Why do people drive so badly when the roads aren’t clean?
-Why do chocolate and coconut go together so well?
-Any plans, now that the world hasn’t ended?
-A prospective job wanting to do a background check and drug test on you is a positive thing, right?
