Insomnia: inability to sleep or to remain asleep throughout the night.

I haven't been able to sleep for the last two nights. Not really sure why. I'm freaking tired, seems like I could fall asleep at any minute. But when it's time to "hit the hay" I'm wide awake. And I really enjoy sleeping.

Anyway, enjoy this video of Taylor running circles around J.T. from about a month ago...

After interviewing for three weeks straight, with 13 different people, and not getting the job, I needed a project. I needed to feel a sense of accomplishment. Not that there was nothing good to come out of the interview process, but it was pretty anti-climatic.

So, I decided to work on the front yard. There were a few things I've been wanting to do, so I thought yesterday would be the perfect day to get it done. In 105 degree heat. It's a dry heat though...

Below are the before and after pics. Enjoy...

Since it was 100 degrees outside today, and this made me laugh out loud (I'm no longer using lol), I thought I'd share.

Didn't get the job. They gave it to someone who has been working at the City for 11 years, I've been here for 18 months. She has way more project experience but I was told that I interviewed well, no doubt I could have done the job and that my time will come.

Guess I need to listen to some NOFX on the way home....
Been two days since my 3rd round interview and we still don't know who got the job. HOPEFULLY we will find out today cause I can't take weekend of not knowing.

And now for something completely different...

I love NOFX. Every time I hear one of their songs it puts me in a good mood. Take this morning. I had a little too much to drink last night (whilst my wife and I caught up with a couple of high school friends) and I was dragging ass this morning. On comes NOFX's Johnny Appleseed, and viola, I'm ready to face the day. It was either that or my warm white-cake-sprinkled doughnut.

Guess I need to update this.

Got a third round interview for the ITBA tomorrow with my current boss, his boss and the director of public works for the city. The four of us in a room with things like, "Why do you want this job?" and "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" I think I'll do pretty well. I know I can do the job, hopefully they do too.

Got a second round interview for the new IT Business Analyst position. It's down to me and one other coworker. Not to be too cocky but I think I've got a really goos shot at the position. 2nd round is this Thursday. Should know by Friday. w00t!

Speaking of Friday, I will be playing 36 holes of golf followed by my monthly poker tournament. Then I have a 9:30am meeting on Saturday. Then Mother's day on Sunday. Weekends no longer exist for me.

Oh, one more thing. For some reason I've created a twitter account. Twitter, for those of you who don't know, is like a mini blog that can be updated from cell phones and IM clients. In other words, instant access so I can tell the whole world what I'm doing right now? The more I think about it, the more conceded it sounds. Why the hell would anyone care what I'm doing all the time? Me thinks I won't use it that much, if at all.

Until next time...
