My big project this week has been the kitchen. I have wanted to do a major cleaning for a while now, and it’s as good a time as any. This also gives me a chance to do some reorganizing since I have a good idea now of what new kitchen items (I mean post-wedding) get used more often than others. So my electric griddle gets put somewhere that makes it easier to use, for example. The clam boil pot, as much as I love it, might get used once or twice a year and so it can go somewhere out of the way.
Anyway, as I was cleaning yesterday Scratch decided he was going to “help” by heading up to his new cat bed, up on the freezer. Now, before I get into this too deeply, some background is required.
Every so often as I’m browsing the job postings on Craig’s List I’ll pop over to the Free section and see just what little gems people are giving away. Sometimes people actually give away really good stuff. We got our wheelchair that way when Geoff was hurt and needed one.
Most of the time people post “Free Fill” or “Free Couch!!!!” Then there are posts like these. These are the interesting ones.
I’ve been reading The Hub Review a lot lately. It’s well written and he gets to see and review a lot of things that I would never make it to see. What initially caused me to finally bookmark the blog was his story about some audience misbehavior, something I have talked about in the past.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day. As I write this thousands of Bostonians are going out to traditional Irish-like watering holes to drink themselves into oblivion on green beer and bad bar food. Geoff and I didn’t have much to do today other than a doggie play date this morning and a few errands. On his way home from running errands, Geoff stopped at the nearest Burger King and got us each a meal.
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.
Ok, I know I’ve been posting a lot today. Oh well, it’s my our blog, so 😛 This is important.
