Job search -
E&J Gallo didn't select me for an interview, which pisses me off as I've been to all their shit since I was a first year and chatted up all the recruiters. It would be difficult for me to show more interest in them than I have short of setting up some sort of pep rally. So grr. I've decided just to e-mail the lady I had lunch with and ask her to keep me in mind, but it still kinda pisses me off. I've dropped for about 5 interviews and have been passed over about 3 times with the other stuff in limbo, so I may have to get my resume re-looked at for effectiveness.

Misc - My organizational skills still suck. I can't find some of my accounting packet, so I don't have a case or two. I can't find the bloody battery charger for my digital camera. I did find the wire to link it to the computer today, so yay progress.

I'm still slightly homesick/nostalgic about my hometown. Seeing it all post-apocoliptic like was surreal and made me realize how much I care about the place even though I havent' been there regularly in forever. It's still my hometown where I grew up.
I'm glad La Suprema, my favorite mexican restaurant there, made it through ok.

I was offered the teaching job at Fairfax the first part of July. I'd been interviewing since February. So even though I know how frustrating it can be, keep your chin up. The perfect job is waiting for you. (hug)

If you'd like me to take a look at your resume, e-mail it on over. I'd be glad to offer comments, questions, snide remarks and obscene gestures where appropriate. (grin)

It always sucks to not get at least an interview. At this point, what could an email hurt? At least, if she'd give you a courtesy interview, it could be the break you need to get a chance to impress them.

I figured as much. Nothing lost by trying anyway.
