Week in review

-Monday, Tuesday and Thursday walked for 1 hour on treadmill, averaging 2.3-2.6 miles each time.

-Interviewed for jobs on Thursday and Friday. If either one comes through, will more than likely start in 2008. Have interview scheduled for next Thursday, December 27th.

-Saw National Treasure: Book of Secrets last night. Very good movie. It reminds me of the Indiana Jones trilogy, but a more modern sense in that it's happening in modern times and it involves the lead character's family. Although, if there is a third one, and economically, they'd be stupid not to do so, it would be almost surprising where they pull the gold from. In the first, it was a treasure that any one nation shouldn't have. This time, it was the legendary lost city of gold.

Musings

Just got home from my first interview after being laid off. It was for a company called AVI Systems. I kinda know the area where they are located a little, always think I'd make a killing if I were to put a gas station over there as there doesn't seem to be one within about a mile of the nearest highway. Horrible if you run out of gas in that area, ya know.
Kinda doubt I'll get the position, but I'm hoping. *crosses fingers*

Jobless again and more

I shouldn't be angry with my old boss, but I guess I am, a little.
Yesterday, I go to work, not thinking anything is wrong. Work the whole day. GF™ calls at 5pm saying she just got up and says that we'll be going out for supper, since nothing was thawed. I hang up and then a minute later, she calls again. The temp agency I was going through for this job just called like a second after she hung up the phone. I was laid off.
The thing I'm upset about is that I have to find out at the end of the day when my boss is there the entire time. Now, granted, he may not have known when I got to work that morning, but as soon as he knew, he should have pulled me to the side and let me decide if I want to leave right then to start looking for a job or wait until the end of the day. Calling the temp aganecy is more of a formality, in my opinion, because obviously I'm more than likely going to be calling them up and telling them they let me go.
