Job Hunting Excuses:

Misspellings in job ads. This is even worse because it's not print I'm looking at, you can edit your Craigslist post at any time. Does anyone know if this has ever been a test to see if you're tactful and have an eye for detail? I get so scared wondering if I should mention it or not.

I suppose I'd like to work for a company that tolerated the occasional typo. I'd rather work for a company that jumped at the chance to make things right.

I once told an interviewer her name badge was upside down. I waited until the end of the interview when the library was about to open. She was more embarrassed than I was, so I guess it was the right thing to do. It had nothing to do with being a Belle and Sebastian fan on her part, but I was tempted to make a joke just in case.

Going to California

May 25. No I don't have a job yet. I do have a snazzy new phone that makes blogging a bit easier, so mayber this site will start to make sense again.

I will be at the NYC and SF Popfests of course. It doesn't look like i'll make it to Athens this year though.

I also made some decorations for the Prince tribute show at Bruar Falls. My Teenage Stride is playing, i forget the rest of the bands. Here is a preview.

Yeah, my stupid special needs diet leads me to have some strange food items around the house. Last night I made zucchini pancakes with chickpea flour which weren't so bad because the Indian spices covered up the nastiness that is bean flour. I realized I wanted some Sweet Garlic Chili Sauce to go with, but I didn't have any. So I made up this super hot sauce on my own. Now, I would not recommend trying to make it healthier because it would probably screw it up. So fuck you if you don't like high-fructose corn syrup and you use some organic nasty ketchup and it tastes boring...

Sriracha "Cock" Chili Sauce
Heinz Ketchup
Blue Agave Nectar (could probably use honey, I don't even remember what recipe I bought agave for but it has a nice taste between honey and sugar and I'm hooked)
granulated garlic

Pretty much everything should be mixed to taste, but I think I'm using 2 parts ketchup to 1 part sriracha and 1 part agave.

Anyone else notice Sriracha isn't saying cock sauce on the label anymore? I bet only people over 30 call it that anymore.
