The next step being my continued root canal.

In my RSS feed for job openings I had a posting for basically someone to update Facebook with the company's message etc.  At the end was this:

You must explain how, if Facebook goes out of business tomorrow, you would know how to reinvent yourself.

I'm half tempted to apply and answer with 'Dude, Twitter + RoR + a case of Bawls = DONE'.  Seriously, like are people actually tying themselves down to one specific website with an API and getting jobs to I dunno, click submit?  I understand Social Media but really that should be a small subset of a company's marketing or whatever, not really their only hope.  Because as the posting hints, Facebook goes away, what the hell do you do?

I called the potential job interview today at lunch.  So around 12:15.  Texas is in the Central time zone, so I figure, you know I'd be able to talk for an hour or whatever and my boss not miss me.  Went to voice mail.  leave message.  She calls back at 1:40.  To my home number.

I call back again, thinking hey it may be 5:15 here in the East, but it's 4:30ish in Texas.  Voice mail again.  I am off all day tomorrow and I plan on calling her before my root canal appointment.  That is at 11:45, and I need to leave here at 10:45, so I have plenty of morning time to call.  I have a feeling she'll get back to me as I am in mid procedure.  Hopefully, I'm not in the chair for 2 hours like last time, and there is little pain/swelling and I can call her after the procedure.

We've been in a heat wave here in the east.  I was in Mississippi for a few days in late August, once.  This is not quite as bad.  Right now it is 80 degrees in the room with the AC.  It's 98 or so in the kitchen, and I'm drying clothes, so yeah.  PhotogGal sent me a message saying she was excited for Saturday.  Nothing like a little pressure to ratchet up the second date.  I have a planned location, but I need another activity as the farmers market is really small and after 20 minutes we'll be done.  Maybe winery trip too.  And food.  Somewhere not outside if its this damned hot.

I should get to the gym here in a bit. Have to wash the dishes, and fold clothes first.  And crap now it's 81 degrees.

It's been hot out this way but not humid by lm (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Jul 08, 2010 at 06:10:59 AM EST
Makes a big difference. The humidity is about to start ratcheting up for us though. We may get some thunderstorms which might cool us down a bit.

The obvious follow up to a farmer's market (to me, anyway) would be a hike and a picnic in the forest.

Kindness is an act of rebellion.

And me too.  I don't do well in the heat.
