Where Did the Year Go?

Well, I'm back. And, I'm really wondering why none of my devoted readers were worried if I was ok. Come on guys, I could have died or something!

Anyway, this post is going to be kind of short. I really just wanted to check in. Here are some things that I've done since I've been gone:
  • Went to visit J's family for Christmas in West Texas.
  • Went on a cruise with my dad's side of the family over New Years and proved ourselves to be the most obnoxious family on the cruise. It was really fun.
  • Decided not go on a New Year's cruise in the future. As fun as it was, it wasn't worth the craziness with the holidays.
  • Got a new roommate. Our dog Parker got a new roommate too. We're still dealing with that. Two puppies, no yard, yikes!
  • Watched an episode of Law and Order that had heavy references to my old friend Paul Cameron.
  • My online presence over the last 2 weeks has been less than it has been in years. This is still a result of being out of town so long over the holidays, oh, and the new dog.
  • Have not started working out with P90X again. We're shooting for Saturday. Surely I can get willpower for 90 days. I mean, it's just 90 days.

Ok, I'll leave it at that for now. But, before I go, I'd like to list some of my pet peeves. I don't talk about work much, but basically I interview people all day long. I love it and hate it all at the same time. Here are some of the things I hate:

  • When I go up to meet a candidate and they give me a blank stare. Who were they expecting?
  • When someone shows up late, even just by one minute.
  • When someone doesn't apologize for being late (this is way too common).
  • When someone shows up more than 15 minutes early. Wait in your car, please.
  • When people seem to think they are too good for our position. If that's the case, fine, just keep it to yourself.

That's it for my update full of lists. I'll be back to regular scheduled updates now (hopefully).

*gets anxious*

Wait, you updated your blog? Are things okay? We all had just assumed you were off to bigger and better things. I'm sorry that you've been weighed down with writing this lengthy post. Hopefully it doesn't speak to any state of depression. Thinking of you. :)

P.S. That was a lame attempt at comedy. Like "it's of more concern that your back rather than when you were away"? Yeah.....

I look forward to hearing more updates. Bet you have funny stories about crazy interviewees? If you ever have writers block...just sayin.

I imagine I was the model interviewee when you interviewed me.

I'm glad you are back. I've been wondering where you were. I thought you fell overboard on the cruise.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I don't know when I'll be back in town. :( :( :(

P90X. Does that work?

I'm glad to hear nothing has happened to you.
