where do we go from here?

I'd like to say I've been busy, and technically I have. Life happens. I say that a lot lately. I have been feeling particularly empty, and therefore nothing I think about saying here seems terribly important to pass on. I may stop that soon, if I thought people would put up with my using this as a journal that goes deeper than just what happened in the news and what is new in the job search. For the latter, it's a lot of the same as in the past few months. Interviews but no hires. I'd like to think it's the economy and not my glaring lack of skills, because I don't consider myself particularly unskilled. However it is also selfish to blame the economy entirely. I am sure the truth lies somewhere in between.

Anyway, until I am ready to spill my soul a little more, here are some really cool links. I am going to see The Brothers Grimm when it comes out, despite the fact that Terry Gilliam should have cast Tim Roth and Gary Oldman (of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead fame) rather than Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. However, Heath looks like he is growing up to be an incredible actor like all my other favorites. I didn't notice it was him until the credits rolled, and that is ALWAYS a good sign. I like actors like Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman, and Val Kilmer who care enough about the craft to blend into their work, not needing to stand out and be recognized until the movie is over and you find out it was them all along. I love that.

So, go check out the Brothers Grimm trailer, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
While your sound is on, go watch the flash animation of Maxwell's Silver Hammer.
And for more flash animation fun, go watch all the Foamy the Squirrel cartoons. Great for those times when you are in a cynical dark-humor mood. :)

Fact: The DFW area had the highest layoffs of anywhere in the US outside Silicon Valley after the tech crash.

Fact: The last few management training groups to drift through my former W4l-M4rt were a minimum of 50% comprised of IT people who gave up.

Fact: The last restaurant management interview I had revealed that I was competing with IT people with Master's Degrees -- for an entry level management job.

You should come over. I'll make Pecan Chicken . . . and something decadent and chocolate.
