Aug 20, 2001Alright! Now we're getting somewhere. In the past few days a healthy number of jobs have popped up on Monster.com, of which I have applied to several. Prodigy is hiring like a mofo. All indicators are pointing to the economy picking back up again.
Armed with my new resume, I am confident that I'll find a good job within a month. Hooha! I have begun building up my portfolio too. It looks pretty slick so far. I'm going to try to get a good representation of my coding prowess up there.
Natasha did a particularly good job of soothing the savage beast that is Evan today. Tim (who doesn't have a website yet) and Karen are visiting me in early September. Mandy may also visit in a few months for a tattoo convention. She totally changed her "look" for a job. Here's a before and after shot of the ...
Marvelous Mandy Makeover!

Lisa Loeb just called. She wants her look back. Lisa Loeb:

I met Jaime tonight at Mojos. It was one of those random middle-of-the-night why-not-meet-a-stranger kindof things. The tea bags proved defective, the donuts were free, and the conversation was contagious. She's got a cool television production job and travels all over the world with CNN and stuff. I was impressed. It sounded like a lot of fun.
I miss having a doggie. My Nazi apartment complex doesn't allow them though. Seeing as I will be starting work soon (positive thinking), I wouldn't have enough time for one anyway.
On the way home a neon-illuminated storefront triggerred a visual memory of looking down at the ground from a low-flying airplane.. at night.. as it was preparing to land. Everything was so desolate and quiet and such a nice glow to it. I remember thinking that it seemed like the city was an ant farm. The little ant cars illuminate the little ant roads. Ants shouldn't fuss too much about ant-doings. It's silly to. Really.
Check out these fascinating pictures. Mad props to Jaime for the link. I think photography may be a permanent interest. I figured out the trick to photography tonight: Take pictures of things that you or other people would like to look at again. Pretty simple, huh?
I'm a simple guy.
