I haven't felt very much like writing. Not in here, at least.

I have a 'meeting' to go to up in north Jersey this afternoon. I'm not sure it qualifies as an interview because I'm not meeting this person at his office, but at the company of where I used to work. But what makes it even more annoying is that a snowstorm is about to hit this afternoon and I'm not really in the mood to be driving 40 miles in it when it starts.

Stupid job search.

Deja Vu all over again

Well, yesterday afternoon I got laid off. I really wish I had knows while I was on vacation because I would have spent the night in Key West and taken longer getting home.

This really comes as no surprise, though. There wasn't any new work coming in and the work that we did have was suddenly being halted at the middle of the night by the client. You can imagine the moral at that place. It was dreary and quiet on the development floor of that place anyway. It was a cold and uninspiring place to be.

But the good news is that I have an interview this morning. It's a second interview actually since I had the first phone one while I was in Florida.

I'll be crossing my fingers...

A, B and C

A. First, recommend to me:
1. A movie:
2. A book:
3. A musical artist, song, or album:

B. I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.

C. Then, I want you to go to your blog, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything they want!

Changes in Latitudes

I have this feeling inside that it's time for a change in latitude. Maybe it was reading Jimmy Buffett's book and listenting to his tunes, maybe it's my horoscope telling me that I need a change in scenery and that a road trip is in the cards, maybe it's the f'n cold that has dried my skin so much that I look like an aligator. Or maybe it could be that I'm so bored here at work and there is no better time to take off and hop in the car.

I'm thinking about driving down 95 and making my way to southern Florida. I have family there where I can crash. I think I can make some stops along the way in Savannah and Tampa. Maybe say 'Hi' to Mickey Mouse. Or maybe I'll take a trip to Key West just to have a 'Cheeseburger in Paradise'.

The trick will be to not think to hard about it and just do it. Tell work that I want to take next week off - unpaid if need be. Finish up the little stuff that I've been working on this week and by Sunday night, pack a bag, my camera and iPod, fill the gas tank and drive south.

This sounds so wonderful. I have to do this. I hope I don't chicken out.

Groundhog Day

So Punxsutawney Phil made his prediction, and I'm not liking it. Six more weeks of winter. Not like you wouldn't have guessed with temperatures in the teens, but there was always hope.

Damn rodent!
