Well, it's been a week, and still no job. Every place we call is either full, not interested, or interested with an open position, but when we call back when they tell us to, the position has already been filled. It's awful. Today, I sent out resumes to temp agencies because I'm going to run out of money. I also sent out a resume to Stone Brewing Company (of Arrogant Bastard fame) because they have an opening for a sales representative in the Los Angeles area. My cover letter was bascially, "Look, I know I didn't go to school for this, but I figured it was worth a shot. Once I drove two hours to get some of your beer." Actually, that could be a pretty awesome job. If these fall through, too, it's Best Buy or telemarketing for me. Neither one is particularly appealing.
Also, the ants in our apartment are everywhere. And they are retarded. As Aimee noted this afternoon between calling production offices, the ants are all over our bedroom and the bathroom, but never in the kitchen. Just now, I found them in my bed and dresser and hopefully killed them all. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep if I think there are ants in my bed, but hey ... better ants than spiders, I say.
Now it's time to go to bed. Because when I'm sleeping, I'm neither spending money or scrambling to get a job. Tomorrow, I'll probably spend some time taking advantage of some of my free weekend minutes. And by that, I of course mean engaging in sexual intercourse with my cell phone.

And Now, A List
Things That Are Still Not Working: 1). My internet connection 2). Me
Yes, I got the call back from the production office at "Malcolm," and despite all signs, portents, feelings, and straight-up logic, they decided to go with someone else. The woman who interviewed me did say she passed my resume along to some other people who would call me later in the week, so I guess there's still a little hope. At this point, though, I need a job, and now I'm more than a little disappointed that I'm back at Square One.
Yesterday Aimee and I spent a large portion of the day faxing resumes and cover letters out, and today I'm sure there will be more of the same. We're keeping positive, though. I know I didn't drop everything and come out here for no reason. So keep those East Coast well-wishes coming, and I'll keep you posted when I find something out.

Stumbled upon this little gadget at Joey's LiveJournal and decided to give it a swing -- you know, just to add a little spice to my current-life of watching TV, drinking coffee, and walking around grocery stores but not buying anything. Let's hope that "job" field comes true, eh?
