I've used it for maybe two weeks and have already left scratches, cracks, and tooth imprints in the harder plastic part on the bottom. To the point where some of the imprints have cracked through to the softer rubbery stuff, I think. WTH???!!! I'm going back to sleep.

    I'm feeling much better now. The only ickiness I have left is the crap spawning from dreading going to work somewhere I'm not wanted and doing a job that doesn't need to be done.
    Already gone through 1 mug of tea today, working on #2.
    On a more serious note, I pose a question to any that might know. I asked if the engineering company in question was hiring for an EIT (me) back early August. They requested my resume about a week ago (they know my name and work because I reviewed their stuff for the city). Do you think they are actually looking to hire, or is it just for their files for future reference? If they are, how long do you think it'd take for an interview request? I'm a bit antsy, but more importantly, I need to know if I should go ahead and use my vacation time, or take a check (usual salary x hours vacation.) The check would be needed if I needed to sock back for being unemployed.

    As a recruiter my advice would be to investigate the opportunity. Far too many people sit back and wait for companies to come to them. Companies, especially now in this economy, are looking for people who are aggressive not passive. They want someone, from day one, who will take the bull by the horns and run with it. So from my experience I would go directly to them. If things don't pan out 1. You'll know they're not hiring. 2. You've made a personal contact which wil go farther than any resume (Companies really only look at resumes for maybe 30 seconds before moving on). 3. You find out more about your competition's strategy and what works for them or what doesn't.

    You can always tell them this is a confidential search to ensure you cover your butt. Loyalty only exists in the mind of those who aren't in charge.

    Oh and glad to hear you're doing better.
    Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.

    I already asked. Back in August, as soon as I found out I was going to be laid off by the city. I'm just curious as to how this might play out.

    Ack! I'm going to have to go shopping AGAIN! My 2s are baggy now. The ones I'm wearing right now are supposed to be high- waisted (wide waist band). As of right now, they're acting more like hip huggers. And most of my button downs are too big again. Not overly noticeable to anyone but me, but I'm afraid these pants are going to fall off one of these days if I step on them. I may just sew belt loops on them. More good news: I'm on the last notch in my belt before the hole I punched in HS. I'm never getting back down to that hole (I wore pants at my natural waist back then and was a toothpick.) I guess when I get another job, I should treat myself to work clothes that fit. And jeans that don't need a belt or to be hiked up every 10 minutes. My selection of clothes is the smallest it's ever been, thanks to this insane size loss. For clothes that actually fit, I'm down to filling half my closet (only 1 bar), 6 jackets/ blazers/ coats, 2 dresser drawers, and 3 cubes of tanks and sweaters. That's down from an overflowing closet, stuffed dresser, a couple totes of stuff.

    Dinner: about half of liver and onions (1/2 lb liver, 1/2 onion, 1/2 apple, 3 slices bacon, and 1/4 c pecans, originally.) It tastes great, but the texture of the liver just kills it for me. Just can't wrap my head around the meat mousse texture. Off to find the rest of dinner.
    ETA:Found leftover zucchini lasagna. Again.
    No real exercise today. Not happening.
    ETA again: Dessert- 1 oz Kerrygold Dubliner cheese and the rest of the apple.

    My Grand Anti Inflammation September Challenge!
    1) No more wheat. Point blank, the end, do not pass go. Still rolling along quite primally, may have accidentally ingested some peanut oil, but no worries
    2) Eat more veggies. At least 30 g carbs, preferably 50 g carbs per day.
    66 g on the dot
    3) Sprint at least once a week and PBF as per e-book and WOW.
    Yeah, I need to do that.
    4) Fight inflammation. This includes:
    A) Getting O3 : O 6 levels to at least 1: 4, preferably 1:1
    3 tsp fish oil, ratio is 6:5
    B) Watching and mediating stress. No more stress puppying.
    Still working with myself on that. I am doing much better on that though. That engineering company needs to hurry the hell up.
    5) Sleep at least 6.5 hrs per night, preferably 8 or more.
    7.5 hrs last night
