well, got the bad news...
Easter, we run out of money to pay for the motel room.
After that, we're living in our cars.
oh, and the storage payments are behind, so they've put a lock on those and demand we pay before they send that to auction.
(We're trying to pay it!)
Shit just keeps getting worse, don't it?
I was at a job fair all day Tuesday.... all they want is engineers and programmers.
And this BIG, advertised job fair?
...11 companies showed up.
all day long, in line, for 11
companies to show up.
Only 11 showed up.
...giant hall at the convention center... 11 tables...
All wanting cheap-ass, off-the-boat programmers & engineers.
I kid you not.
And they wonder why have such massive security problems and computer/materials theft here in the valley....
My friend at Lockheed? She's fighting Chinese hacking attacks daily.
(oh, and there probably are jobs there, (I've checked), but she's a bitch, and won't help. Because she wants sex in return, and I'm too old for her tastes. she want the young
So, anyway, we'll lose the Wi-Fi access here Sunday
...and we'll be truly screwed
Hopefully, I'll get the final drawing of the book done before then and my co-author will take them to the publisher and handle it.
He's mad at me because of the whole thing and say that I'm a lazy god for nothing...because somehow drawing 'magically' appear to him and books are written in days and published in the same amount of time.
Oh, and mom? She's puking with dry heaves again constantly. Depressed and very suicidal.
(So am I).
Thursday, I have yet another job interview...
in which they'll say I'm "over-qualified" for (i.e. "too expensive") or they've "decided to go for a more diverse candidate" because "the candidate pool was exceptionally large"...
(No, it wasn't. They told me so at the interviews.)
...because that's all I get back in e-mail replies.
I do love how I'm 'too expensive' for a minimum wage entry level job.
So, sorry if I'm a bit downbeat this week.
I think you'll agree that I have a bit of reason to be.UPDATE:
4 hour interview on Thursday...just to qualify for an actual interview.
Shit just keeps getting worse.
