» Job Interviews

I was on summer break from University...
and I was home visiting friends where they were working at a grocery store. I was saying something about looking for work for the summertime, but I didn't want anything too serious. They told me that there may be an opening here at the shop. I went and seeked out the manager and he fired a few random questions at me and made me fill out a job application.

At the end of the interview I asked him if there were any jobs and he said that there wasn't any at the moment but if I waited a few minutes, that he'd go fire somebody and I could take their spot. I couldn't believe it!

I was still in shock about what he had just said when he got up and excused himself from the room. Since we were in his office during all of this and he had a set of windows that looked down on the whole store I could see that he walked out onto the sales floor and walked right up to one of the workers and pointed at the door. The worker said a few words and walked out.

The boss came back to me and said that there was now an opening and asked if I wanted it. I took it and walked down to the sales floor and got to work.

Appologize for length.

Spelling Bees
I was in grade school and got entered into a spelling bee by my teacher because I scored well on a spelling test. I didn't want to be there but there I was. After a couple of brutal days of eliminations, I finally got put away and that was the end of the contest.

A couple of days later I received the plaque in the mail and was surprised to see that the judges (or whoever made up the plaque) had misspelled my name! How ironic is that? I kept that around for a while as a conversation piece until I got old enough to figure out that it wasn't really impressing the girls.

» I just don't get it

Computers, tattoos, Hummers
Linux, Red Hat, or whatever flavor of Unix you like. Ok, maybe it's because I Windows everday in my job but I don't understand what the big deal is, but then again I don't really care. My pc gets on the internet and plays the games I want to play. I can email with it and I can even do spreadsheets and text documents.

I don't understand what the big deal is about iPods. They are simply .mp3 players and there are about a hundred others out there that do exactly the same thing but cost a ton less.

Hummers. WTF do these folks need a huge monster of a truck for just to drive to the grocery store? Are they ever going to drive a 4 wheel track, let alone get the tires muddy?

Rap music. Well, not the music so much as the artists themselves. These guys are usually a bunch of thugs that put out mediocre music and then flaunt how much money they have by producing videos where they throw it back in the consumers faces.

Tattoos on the small of a womans back. What the hell is that? In my opinion they make the lady look trashy. I can't help but wonder what they're going to think of these when they're 50 and have grandchildren.

Word Up by Coolio
We had just left the funeral of one of my best friends and this was the song playing on the car stereo. There was 4 of us in the car and we all sang along though our heart really wasn't into it.

» Beautiful Moments

We were in Nasca, Peru. We had been on the go all day and were finally making our way back to the hotel for a little dinner and some rest before we had to leave that night on a 10pm bus. When we got back to the hotel we were pleasantly surprised to find that everyone else had checked out. It was just me and my girlfriend and we had the entire place to ourselves. We immediately grabbed some wine and some food and positioned ourselves by the pool. We drank some wine, ate some bread and watched an amazing sunset over the desert. The hotel staff was great and even came out to serve dinner to us but waited until after sunset to do so, so that they wouldn't spoil the mood.
