cooky cookies

i finished "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" soon after i wrote about it in my last blog.
i had a lot of spare time on a car pool trip for work, so i took advantage of it.
the book was decent.
it was full of useless information and i was not all that impressed with the plot.
it was a quirky book... but i would not say it was worth reading.

i started up reading a new earth by eckhart tolle again and finished it.
i was afraid that it had been so long since i started reading it,
that i would have to go back and start from the beginning again.
but it was fairly easy to pick back up on.
and it's honestly just what i needed right now.
how to stay present in my life and with all of the situations that are thrown my way.
which i think i am starting to do more and more.

i had yet another good interview on tuesday afternoon at the downtown macys.
the manager seemed happy about my job history and skill level and even went out of his way to try to find out if their were any job openings in the departments i would be best suited for.
unfortunately, the managers for those departments were not answering his calls/pages, and he did not want to waste anymore of my time.
so he said he would pass along my resume to the lady in the department i was looking to be placed in.
well, the lady called me back today and requested to interview me tomorrow afternoon.
so here i go for a second interview.
i hope that i can win her over like i did the manager who first interviewed me. :)
the only bad things is... if i get this macys job, i need to buy new work clothes.
macys is kinda higher fashion than what i typically wear.

i only did 1 hour of physical work today for rgis.
my numbskull bosses forgot the printer cable they needed at the office in the valley, so they volunteered me to drive the new company car back to the valley from sprague.
so i got about 2 hours of paid time just driving around.
they didn't even ask me... "hey... you have a license, right?"

i'm sorry to anyone and everyone that i have not spoken to in a long time.
if you are reading this, you know i have been in a terrible funk the last 5 or 6 weeks and it was continually getting worse.
i HOPE that i am coming out of it now and will want to see more people and meet more people.
i'd like to actually take the time to see more people than just the people in my apartment building, at work and steve. :)
if you have some spare time and want to meet up, let me know. :)

i made a shitload of cookies today since i was in such a good mood.
i made oatmeal & raisin, cooky cookies (oatmeal, rice krispies, coconut, raisins, dried cranberries and walnuts), and lemonade cookies.
i liked them all except the oatmeal & raisin.
i must have messed something up on that recipe.
but i have a lot of them, so i'm gonna have to eat them regardless.


also, sims is slowly taking over my life.
thanks to steve and his need to be entertained at all times and wanted to play sims when he is over here,
i am now addicted to it again.
i am seriously considering upgrading my sims soon (income permitting).
i think i have like the first version or something... it's prehistoric.
