No News Is Not Good News

I had another appointment for a brief get-aquainted shift at the restaurant I thought was interested in hiring me. As far as I know it went fine. It was really much too short for me to create any impression, much less a bad one. So I was hoping that I would hear something by this weekend. I e-mailed the owner right after the shift and said I enjoyed meeting everyone blah blah, blah. I followed up with a phone call the next afternoon and ... nothing.

She never called me back, and three days have gone by. It's possible that they are seeing more than one person but the total lack of communication does not bode well. I will give it another afternoon and then send one more e-mail leaving the ball in their court. I spent all of Saturday feeling sorry for myself, until I got over it and decided to suck it up and get on with things.

Saturday night I went out bowling with the guys from SIN. I'm not a great bowler but I'm never the worst either. It was a fun night out that didn't involve getting liquored up.

NEW SUBJECT> I downloaded the Windows 7 Beta that was available last month and installed it on my laptop. To say that it fucked up my system would be a major understatement. My laptop now has no sound as there doesn't seem to be any driver support for my sound hardware. None of the games I like to play are supported in a 64-bit environment, so all my games are not working. I tried to install Partition Magic so I could partition the drive and re-install my old OS (something I should have done in the first place), but that software won't install in the new OS either.

So I can't install new software, I can't play games on my laptop, I can't watch video or especially PORN!!! Also, the cursor now jumps around like my system has epilepsy and it took me almost 1/2 hour to compose this little blog post. I've spent the last couple of days trying to figure out how to wipe the drive clean and start over. FAIL!!!

UPDATE (About an hour after posting)
Hello Tom,
I apologize for my delay in returning your call. I am sorry but I am putting the hiring of a new manager on hold, because I've been contacted by a prior manager who's been out on maternity leave to request her return back to work as of mid February. This was unexpected. I've been trying to mesh out the details of her availability to determine if we will be able to accomodate (sp.) her schedule restrictions. At this point we're pretty much at an agreement and she'll be returning to work. I very much appreciate your time in coming to Aquagrill both to interview and to observe, and will be certain to contact you if the situation changes.
Thank you again, and best wishes,

Blow me.
