But enough about me...

What am I doing right now?

Well, if you really must know, I’m sitting at home on a Saturday night, nursing a hangover with a Bloody Mary and popcorn. (Weird combo, I know). I just don’t get it, when I am bored as f*ck, pumped up and ready to go, no one calls me or answers their phone. When I’m tired and not in the mood to socialize, everyone and the f*cking president calls me to go out.

I think even Jesus just called me to see if I wanted to go cloud hopping with him, for real.

Sorry Jesus, but I’m in for the night. I'm sitting on my couch, ah, um, reflecting. Yeah that's it, reflecting...

I had my first job interview last week. I probably shouldn’t be posting about it, seeing as how I’m trying to get a writing job and most potential employers have asked for a link to my blog along with my resume. Haha. Maybe that’s why I still haven’t found a job?

Anyway, during my interview, she kept coming back to the same question of, “so what do you like to do?” or “so tell me about yourself.” By the third time she asked me what my hobbies were, I was really tempted to go ahead and tell her.

“In my spare time I dress up like a dominatrix, stalk the evil lurkers in the night and break dance. (I can do a killer robot). I also enjoy getting drunk, hopping my ex’s fence and passing out on his doorstep.”

Violá! So there you have it. I’m just your average Puddin’.

Seriously, how much should people be allowed to talk about themselves? Is it just me, or is it awkward to continuously toot your own horn? Ok kind of funny how that last sentence can be interpreted in more ways than one…

I always think those sorts of questions are odd. Call me crazy, but all I really want from a job is, you know, money. I am happy if there's no one in the office who makes me want to grab a guitar and go el kabong on their ass.

Do they really expect the truth? Lies come readily to my tongue, but I never know exactly what they are fishing for here.

As I get older, I realize more and more that you are interviewing them as much as the other way around. If a place wants to have 3 interviews or ask me what part of a big mac I'd be I figure they are just fucktards and this is a sign of all the horrible nonsensical shit to come.

PS friends don't let friends break dance, though it shames me to admit I went through a breakdancing phase in the 80s and I am sure I looked like the goofiest dork of all time.

it does kinda make u feel like a jackass to talk about yourself non-stop in an interview.

but i guess that's the whole point

plus ive read that most of the time the interviewer knows in the 1st 10 minutes if they'd hire u or not....

the job search is a lot like dating and fucking.

Good Luck on the jobsearch Puddin! I have my own job rants on my blog....24 and went through a "Corporate Crisis" LOL!! It's like that because I'm one of the youngest ones working for my agency.

I don't like tooting my own horn (depending on which way you interpret it). There is no way I can just flat out "tell someone about myself." I'm too complex for all that. I need to be asked a specific question and then I'll answer accordingly.

Oh and I'd like to see that killer robot.

I am disturbed at you cloud hopping with jesus...lol

Stew said...

i bet Jesus would be happy to hang out with you. you could probably teach him a thing or two.

c.watson said...

Good luck with the job hunting. I think you should tell the interviewer that in your spare time you like to get all stabby with people that ask retarded questions which no same person would answer honestly.

Sexxy Luv said...

How come I never got invited to go cloud hopping with Jesus?.... You are too cool for your own good! :)

ms.uncensored said...

lol. u are fuckin hilarious.

i hate talkin about myself to people. it just seems so narcissistic. and i hate those type of questions. cuz the fuckers are not really truely interested in what i like to do. so i have to suck it up and giving them my best colgate smile and make up something very lady-like. i usually say knitting. or crocheting.

was vodka in that bloddy mary and what were u dranking folk, ps miss me?

Narm said...

Hopping that fence in your dominatrix heels has to be dangerous. I think a skill like that should definitely be discussed in a job interview.
