there's this game show, I seen bits of it while channel surfing, it has Wayne Brady as a host and people in costumes and it's just not that interesting really but kind of fun to watch for five minutes once a month or so. Anyhow, they have people pick behind doors and sometimes people pick the wrong door and behind the door is a pile of garbage, maybe a busted car hauled from the junkyard or something, and it's supposed to be a non-prize. I wonder if a contestant has ever actually said to Wayne Brady "You know, in my spare time I make sculptures out of found objects. I know that's supposed to be a joke prize, but can I take that pile of garbage home? I could actually put it to good use."
My friend was telling me about a new brand of jeans they fell in love with. They wanted to give me a coupon to order some if I was interested. After they told me more about the brand, I said "No thank you. I've all but sworn of synthetic fibers." Which ten or fifteen years ago, might have sounded weird, but I'm glad I have friends who understand exactly what I mean when I say that and why and are cool with that.
Had job interview with an awesome garden center went really well in that the owner and I shared really good vibes, were able to just kind of chat, and it was more like a friendly coffee conversation (without the coffee) than an actual job interview. I really liked them and I like the place more now. Unfortunately, they just don't have a spot where I'd fit in. They'll hold my resume for spring hiring and I told them if anything comes up even before then, I'm game. Don't really got a lot of hope about it though.
Silver linings seem a bit thin and elusive these days, don't they? I think on my next day off work, I'm gonna go bird watching and maybe think about how if I can't find them, I can go about making a few.
Stay beautiful Hubski. Maybe make some silver linings of your own this week.
