How was your day today?

Well at least on the East Coast, its approaching midnight. SO I guess its the appropriate time to ask, how was your day today?

I had a great day today. I was supposed to go to a friends house and put his computer together, but did not really feel like it. And what do you know? It was post poned

I've seen better days. But aside from some short term inconveniences and a financial hit, it's a decently fine day. My reactions in the lab worked. That's better than I can say for most days.

Oh, did I mention that Mr. Beanz started a thread in the Road Cycling forum asking me about Mt. Baldy? So I thought about Mt. Baldy a lot today. And about fun to drive cars. It was kind of a sit around and wait type of day much of the day at work. Those two topics definitely helped the time go by enjoyably.

I stayed home from school today and kept tracks on the Tour of California. Along with a major fever, throwing up, headaches, drowsinesss. Which is hitting me hard right now with pills. Also went to the Grocery Store and the Doc in the Box. Not much accomplished but I'm getting over some odd infection.

My day wasn't bad. Went to work, wasn't much for me to do. Went to chemistry class, only 4 people there, it was a nice class. I like this chapter better.

Came home, went for a ride with my friend. Pretty cold out, but it was fun. Did a footjam on my bmx bike and got a flat, slime in the tire sealed it up though. Must have ran over some glass or something.

I am tired, and have not been to real sleep since Monday morning (worked last night grave, at work again, no sleep) so that is about 40 hours...

Tried to make some reeds (oboe tonight), messed up a few peices of cane due to lack of motor skills from being tired, almost fell asleep on the freeway. I was missing my bike all day today, no time to ride this week yet. I got yelled at at wind ensomble this morning, yelled back at the director, what a jack a$$, took my physics midterm, bombed it, could not concentrate, got called "gay" from some boys at my sisters school, could not explain...

What a day!

Mandy

Let's see.....got another 3 phone calls yesterday from recruiters about my old job; it's getting really annoying now.

Had my unemployment hearing too - I think it went well.

Got a new seat (Specialized Alias) from a shop yesterday, and need to go back and get my bike fitted. I also think I want the Specialized Toupe seat as well, but that will have to wait until I get another job.

my day is rolling.
its cloudy outside.
I need to take a walk and write down scenarios to test for. Credit Card processing is a *****. . Listening to Ashlee Simpson .

I think I'm going to take a ride later this afternoon despite the cloudy cover and drizzle.

I was a contractor at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. And yes, they suck.

I'm up to about 10 calls for my old job now. Just got off the phone with yet another recruiter who doesn't speak English very well, and didn't understand much of anything I said.

Ahhh - I hate those non-englishspeaking recruiters.
I got a mexican and 2 indian ****ers who could not for their life produce one understandable sentence over the phone. They also were not capable of even achieving SVA through e-mail.

Just got off the phone with yet another recruiter about my old job - I think I'm up to about 12 calls now in the last week and a half. It was an English-speaking fellow, so I could actually carry on a conversation and explain why I was released and am not "welcome" back at Pfizer.

I'm still debating contacting an attorney, but not sure if I have much to stand on for a discriminatory case.
