I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised to see that Kevin Smith is apparently a dachshund fan. He owns a short-haired mini named Shecky. I am a fan of his work, and I have owned dachshunds forever, and yet I never knew he had a dachshund.
Geoff here – as Kelly posted earlier we had a pretty good experience at the National Urban League conference this weekend. The career fair (as they called it) was quite good, and I managed to make some good contacts for some local jobs. One HR manager we spoke to actually said she was going to hand carry my resume down to the head of the department. I would say that is a good thing. I also got some superb advice on my resume, and I am in the process of making those adjustments.
Yesterday Geoff and I went to the 2011 National Urban League Conference Job Fair. It was absolutely, hands down, the best job fair either of us has ever been to. The job fair was all of Hall A at the Boston Convention Center and was about half and half interesting vendors and people looking to hire. We had more interesting conversations with people from all over the country than I can remember having in a long, long time. Also, I got a pony.
We were on our way home from taking Thumbelina to the vet* yesterday when I spotted a couple of guys from Gentle Giant on Binney Street in Cambridge in the middle of a move. Rerun was in my lap and I pointed them out to him and we waved in our typical dorky “I have a dachshund in my lap “way. It was then that I was reminded that I’d promised the Gentle Giant folks that I would post these pictures.
Note: this does not make Geoff feel any better about it when Smoky, not pictured, actually does this. At least now we know why.
Someday soon, actual content!
They are currently offering 15% off all items in their home sale (10% off electronics) and the place setting we have registered for now includes a free matching soup bowl for a limited time. We also registered for the soup bowl and it costs $95. So, if you’re looking to shop for us for the wedding, this is a pretty good deal. Also, there is free shipping on every $99 purchase. I believe the discount code is REFRESH. Also, there is some sort of Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal on casual and fine china as well, which should, in theory, apply to our registry as well, but I don’t know any more details about that other than that the deal ends on 8/14/11. Check out macys.com for more details.
And I needed a good laugh. Then I found this.
Geoff and I have a friend who has an underpants thieving cat. I don’t know if he’d go to the extremes of a drying rack, but it’s amusing to think about. Enjoy.
