#36 Job Advise

I've been busy lately (no joke when am I NOT busy?) because I had been working for a production company that is producing a movie. THAT'S RIGHT. I said MOVIE!! haha We held auditions Friday for the pick up shots since they have already shot the movie but needed to add a few more characters and scenes to complete the directors vision.  

My job is to get the notice out to everyone that we are having auditions and to set up all the time slots.  We held auditions from 9am-4pm, with 10 min time slots for each person.  We had a full day scheduled. 43 people total CONFIRMED.  21 people showed up for their slot. 




This is me wanting to punch someone in the face.

Only 3 people let me know they were not going to make it to their time slot.

The only positive thing about this is that the people that DID show up did AWESOME. In fact, there were several people who "never did this before" and were unbelievably amazing.

So here are some TIPS for you in this job finding recession filled world:

1. SHOW UP - I know this is a no-brainer....but APPARENTLY this is NOT a no-brainer for some of you out there.... This is sort of a MUST people! If you don't show up, why in the world would someone hire such an irresponsible person? Flaky much?

2. DEODORIZE - If you do show up....please....PLEASE!!! TAKE A SHOWER! And if you take a shower....go that extra mile and PUT DEODORANT ON!!! This is such a small action that brings such a huge difference. If I can't hear what you are saying because I am so focused on your NASTY STENCH that is molesting my poor innocent are probably not going to get a great the job.... just sayin'.

3. STOP HARRASSING ME! - email is enough. One phone call is enough. Maybe...TOO MUCH? If you feel the need to send me your resume....7 times in one day....I'm not going to hire you simply based on the fact that you have ANNOYED ME! Annoying people do not get a pass. Why in the world would I want to work with you if you are annoying me before we EVEN MEET!?!??! Why would I punish myself like that? HA

                                                                 Well there you have it. Simple.

oh... and all those people that didn't show up? I emailed them all back letting them know they missed their time slot. Also considering making a page to show all hiring agencies every person that didn't show....just because I feel the need to tell everyone that these people are irresponsible and flaky! But that would take a lot more time than I want to invest :)

                                              AND WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR TODAY!?!??!

                                                        My friend Amy who has the same humor as me.

                                                   Please enjoy our "Audition" for the *movie. HAHA
*This is not a real audition. This is a joke. It is MY it may not make sense or be funny AT ALL to you...just a little warning :) please don't be offended if one of the characters resonates with you. hahahaha

#35 War

I am currently at war.

Yes technically we are ALL at war over in the Middle East, but what I am talking about is a personal war that I am actually engaged in. 

Usually wars consist of death, bombs, military and horribleness ....but my wars end up being more entertaining than the latter...although there is definitely a death that occurs.

The death I talk about is the death of your pride. The death of your need to look cool. And my weapon of mass destruction is....
How did this war start?!  WHO is Involved?!!? WHY!?!??!  WELL, My best friend Amy ( the one who gave me my Dr. Who mug ) Turned 30 and I and her other best friends decided to throw her an 80s themed murder mystery surprise party.  Let me just say...IT WAS AWESOME. 
The awesome 80s crew, birthday girl in the middle!

Well, the party was a high school "reunion" from the 80s so I made a bunch of photos from "high school" to remember us way back then.. haha. When I posted these photos on Facebook, Amy's hubby was....well....maybe embarrassed??? HAHAHA

It could have just began and ended there. But it didn't. He retaliated with THIS

Which is AMAZING.

 I actually made this my timeline header on my facebook profile! The thing is... It is VERY VERY hard to embarrass me. The reason for this is that I make an idiot of myself daily and put it on display for everyone to see...with eagerness! I think it's hilarious to laugh at yourself...which I do ALL the time!  So to "get me back" isn't really getting me makes me laugh! And then gives me a reason to keep it going!

So I in turn, sent him this to his facebook wall:

Justin Gaga anyone!?
So here is the back and forth for your pleasure!

Jessica Lincoln 

Justin Jackson

Jessica Beiber
Justin Spears

Jessica Stalin
Justin Hitler

Hubs and I reversed...

Justin as his wife

The thing is, once you start something with me...I will finish it. Always. I don't give up, and I have all the time in the world for counter attacks. :)

Your move Justin. Your move.

#34 Coffees and such

It's been a long time coming, but today is COFFEE REVIEW DAY!!! WHOOOO!!!! For all of you that don't drink coffee, (I'm still trying to get my head around that) bear with me :)  It's not all coffee talk! Ha.  Sort of.

Well we will just kick this one off with a good title:
Over her over there, is there a good coffee anywhere?

My mug is a fun little addition my hubby contributed from his Fed-Ex days in college. It says "Over Here. Over There. Any Weight. Anywhere."   They should have added...but it will cost you! Seriously, have you tried to ship a heavy item from ANY shipping place? You need a down payment and your first born.  

But I digress.  The Coffee I'm actually drinking is a re-heat from the night before....hahahah YES YOU HEARD ME RIGHT! THE NIGHT BEFORE!!!!! Don't go all gross on me, it was very good! Hubs and I decided to celebrate our 8 years of marriage with some Mass Effect 3 and some decaf coffee with some "additions" to it. Mmmmmm YUMMY!  

1. Don't judge me that for our 8 years of marriage we played video games and drank "coffee"
2. We went out the day before with his parents that were celebrating their 40th anniversary. (Yes his parents anniversary is the day before our anniversary)
3. Mass Effect 3 is awesome.

Our conversation last night on our walk went a little something like this:
Me: So I played a level you haven't and you'll never guess what I found!
Hubs: What?
Me: A PROTHEAN that has been in stasis for 50,000 years!!!
Hubs: Huh
Me: Babe, A PROTHEAN. ALIVE. That's nuts!!!
Hubs: That's cool.
Me: We totally played the academy level too fast...did you kill Jack in ME2?
Hubs: Yeah, I did, I didn't mean to, but I kind of just left her back on the final level and didn't go back for her, so I guess she died.
Me: Well apparantly if you hadn't killed her she would have been leading the biotic students at the academy level.
Hubs: Dang.  

Yep.  This is my life.  I love it. Just read the Nerd vs Geek there are two parts. It explains my geekness :)

SO ANYWHO I totally got off track. Back to coffee.  I haven't written much about coffee lately because all the coffee I have been drinking have been just Meh-ish. No thumbs up or down, just blah.  They are fine, but not making me super excited to brew a pot. In fact I actually have gone several days with out even DRINKING  coffee! I KNOW!!! 

At least my decaf is probably the best decaf I've had ever.  It's from our local grocer HEB. Its the cafe ole Taste of texas Whole bean taste of hill country  medium roast blend. It's delicious. If you love coffee but can't have the caffeine...this is for you! It has vanilla and cinnamon tones in it. It's very smooth and not too bitter. Yummy yummy.

The other coffee's that I tried that were mehish were Molto dolce hazelnut coffee and the Joe Hazelnut coffee.  Maybe because I was on this hazelnut kick, I missed out on buying actual good coffee.... le sigh.

So jess rating for the meh-ish coffees is:

And the Cafe ole decalf is:
2 thumbs up, def go buy it

Please please please please please.... If you know of some awesome coffee that you just have to tell the world about...just tell me! I want to try it! You can tell me about it, or if ya want to be REALLY AWESOME, you can buy me some and let me try it out! I'll even give you an address where to send it to! I'm not too worried about you all knowing my address...I live in Texas, and our gun locker is well stocked :) HA! 

And what am I thankful for today?

My hubs.  8 years has flown and I love him more that I did when we started the crazy adventure :)
