This Month features the first online mentions of Buick pimp magazine. We have worked very hard together to get to this point people. I would like to thank all those who have donated and helped me fund the money to get the domain, thank you. In all our fundraising efforts have earned a grand total of 0 Dollars and 0 Cents. I was able to get the domain thanks to a free domain name offer. So it will be coming, now I have to make some graphics. In preperation I have google seached for Buick pimps and Buickpimp and well there has not been a lot mention. I believe out there somewhere is a Park Avenue with rims and some other Buick. Well people this isn’t your grandpa’s Buick.
I have had two job interviews last week for the same job. I was called in for one on Thursday, they gave an example of a sample question over the phone, the questions they did give in it were not really similiar or close to it. I was told at the beginning of the interview if I did well they would be haing final interviews tomorrow, that I didn’t know about but they thought I was told. Luckily my morning was clear so I could do that easily. I think I did better with the questions asked Friday but, I forgot to ask one question that I though would have been very good to ask, oh well. At least on Friday I did not use the words “Bling bling” in an answer, sadly I did do that on the Thursday interview. I was talking with some of the other people who were interviewed with me after, it seems like my answers were better and more realistic, I talked about project managment and talking with employees and breaking down tasks, they were talking about having contigency plans a head of time which is OK except that you’d be spending more time making contingency plans than making decisions as crisis approaches, well it depends but for the situations they described in the question it wouldn’t be the easiest to make a plan of action before hand. I found out that the resumes I put in for other positions did not arrive to the people doing the hiring, HR tried to say they picked up their packages too early but I don’t know about that, now I have to get that worked out on Monday. These other positions pay better quickly while the one I interviewd for would pay me significantly less than what other people in that position would get paid.
Anyways so those interviews were at downtown Toronto, both days I took the GO train into town. I must say that the GO train is very quiet, especially compared to the regular VIA trains I have used. Milton Station is pretty empty before 7 in the morning. Thursday was the day with the snow and wind, it took about an hour to get there. Transport trucks were passing me in the fast lane since nobody wanted to use the slow lane. There was a car spun around in the middle lane, traffic was a bit slower in that area due to a lot more snow there and a transport truck and a neon bumped bumpers in the fast lane. Overall it wasn’t a horrible drive, mostly because I had time on my hands. I think the RBC building is sinking and has been for quite some time since the sidewalk suddenly heavily slopes downward towards the building on all sides of it. While downtown I saw a busstop with a billboard on it asking if you could afford to keep your husband. The other side of the bus stop had a small printed poster in very large and colourful letters announcing that some lawyer could get you divorced for 500 dollars or so. It made me giggle a little. I didn’t take a picture of it in fear of offending the homeless guy who lived in the bus stop.
On the second day I stopped at the Bay downtown since I was there and wow, I know people said it was big before, I just didn’t realize how big. They had an Olympic Suede Jacket for 395 dollars, it was marked down too, It may have been 449 before. I didn’t poke into their electronics section because I had just enough time to run to the bus station to catch the bus home to Katty. The ride was pretty OK especially since there are not that many stops to be made. I got to see some very lovely signs such as “We are # 1 in the #2 business”. Milton homes are rather scary looking they are all identical looking, even the ones that are not the same they are just obviously a derivative of the original house design, they all used the same bricks too. The only difference in the houses tended to be what colour the garage and window trims were painted. Even this was scary since one was olive green than another might be forest green. It looked like originally they were not going to use house numbers to distinguish the houses but rather have everyone remember what colour their trim was because they were all just slightly different looking.
We had lunch at the mall because we are lame like that, although first I stopped by Zehrs for sushi because I am super lame like that, than we had Manchu Wok. The chicken there is quite addictive although there chicken balls did not have that extra flavour that I prefer my balls to have. We went to Liquidation world since the Cambridge was supposedly has a better selection and my god they do, they even have a bookshelf sarcoffagus.
I had to depart later to Brantford where Kathy boarded the last train to Windsor.I miss Kathy. It will be a shorter week down there for her since she is coming back Thursday, I look forward to that.
Yesterday I dragged my nephew around to other liquidation and cheap stores in the area from Guelp to Kitchener to Cambridge, in all I got some recharable AAA batteries for less than 5 bucks and Atmosfear at Giant Tiger for 15 bucks, it did cost more for Christmas. After I got it I realized I liked the game Nightmare better, of course I was young and stupid when I first played it so it may have aged very badly, much like my writing. I sound like a 14 year old girls in the entries I posted at the beginnign of the entry.
Hopefully work times passes quickly this week. Oh well I have to go off soon and feed the frog.
