    Hey, you can't blame your imagination on me. I can't help it if you have a vivid, sick & perverted mind. I have enough trouble keeping my own twisted nightmares in checkk. ;)

    If I were you I would have left myself in park and not take any calls :p But that is just me.

    I'm smoking busy, and one of the things I took so much time doing I did for nothing. We didn't get paid so all that prep will have to wait until next week.

    I start yet another new job tomorrow. I am excited, a little nervous and feeling every year of my age.

    Hmmm. I'm trying to decide whether or not to throw some sort of Clone Wars premiere viewing party at my house. I've been toying with the idea of having some sort of general geek get together at my house before the weather turns, and this would provide an activity to organize around. OTOH, a) I know I will be busy with other stuff that weekend, and b) having more than my regular group of friends over will require doing a more thorough cleaning of the house. :p And then, I'm not sure how many people out here are still following CW.

    ... staring at the new device test gig, in particular at the mysterious 1/4" gap between pieces, and wondering if I am missing something or if it was designed wrong. :confused:

    I have to run an interview tomorrow and have no idea what questions to ask.

    I guess I should find out how they react to getting yelled at, cussed out, and called names on the phone cause that happens frequently in this particular position.


    What else........

    Most questions vary according to the job, but one generic question I usually ask during an interview is ... What are the looking for in a company and wirk environment? Sometimes the answers can give me additional insight, whether theyjudt want any job, whether they have trigger points/issues from previous jobs they are trying to get away from this time, and whether their workplace goals are compatible. I also turn the tables another way... People will generally go out of their way during an interview to tell you their strengths. Ask them what areas are not their strength, or what they are working to improve. The way they answer it can tell you as much as the answer in some cases. Oh, and ask them if they have any questions for you. It both gives them the opportunity as well as being another tact for you to get insight into them.

    I appear to still have colors...huh.


    Great questions, T. Another good one is to ask them to describe a difficult experience they had with a customer/coworker and what they did to resolve it.

    The best part about chilly September rains is putting on warm pajamas. I have missed my fuzzy skulls.

    I'm not sure if any of you have a wood burning fireplace but if you do then pm me if you want some firewood. I took down 4 small aspen trees today and my garage is full of it.
