Lazy | Why Girls Are Weird

Monday, October 25, 2010


So Friday I had a long but relatively decent day.  I had a job interview at 10 AM.  It went relatively well although it was a SHORT interview.  Still, it felt good so I'm really hopeful that I'm going to get a call.  Right now it's just a seasonal position but it could possibly turn into a permanent one after the holidays.  Either way, we could really use the money so hopefully I'll get some good news.

I was scheduled to work at 2 and didn't want to waste the gas to drive back home and then back to work so rather than do that I went and hung out at a coffee shop near work.  I love having my little netbook because I was able to sit and have coffee and a delicious blackberry white chocolate scone while hanging out online.  Not too shabby!

I worked from 2 to close and it was kind of crazy but ended up being a good night.  I worked partly with Shannon (my boss) and partly with Amy, who is the 1st assistant manager.  Amy and I ended up having a really good talk towards the end of the night about work and what not and I went home feeling really good.

Saturday was a very blah day.  I was on call for work but of course ended up not having to go in.  It's frustrating because every time I've been on call I haven't had to go in but I still have to get dressed and do my hair and makeup as if I'm going to work.  Kind of a waste.  I spent the rest of Saturday watching movies and just hanging out in front of the fireplace.

However, one awesome thing did happen Saturday.  I got a call for a second interview!  It's on Tuesday at 3:15 so you all better be thinking of me.  If I get the job I have to go through a background check and a drug test.  This is the first job where I'd have to get a drug test and despite the fact that I've never done drugs I still find myself feeling worried.  What's up with that?

Sunday was a lazy day.  I had some school stuff to finish up and then I pretty much lazed around reading and watching movies.  I'm reading this great new book, Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and it's pretty fantastic so far.  However I keep wanting to race to the end because there are many unanswered questions.  Oh I love a good book!  One of the movies I caught this weekend was on the channel FX.  It was called Deception.  I'd never heard of it before but it starred Ewan McGregor (yum), Hugh Jackman (double yum) and Michelle Williams (okay, I'll admit she's not bad on the eyes either).  It ended up being pretty darn good!

Anyway, that was my weekend.  How was yours?

I can't get over that fabulous comic! Too great!

The Daughtridges

I have never had a drug test for a job either. But I would be worried if I had to get one despite never doing drugs. I think it's because of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine fails a couple drug tests because of eating a poppyseed muffin!

Cafe Fashionista

Yayay for a second job interview! That is fantastic news, Krysten!! :)


Congratulations on the interview and callback! (You made me think of that Seinfeld episode - where Elaine eats a poppy seed bagel and tested positive for opium :)).

I had a nice lazy weekend too, just celebrating some job news and soaking up fall colors - have a great Monday!

Good luck in the interview! So glad you got the call back so quickly!

Smart Ass Sara

You'll do fine! And if they ask you why you want the job you can totally be honest and say you are beefing up the concert fund so you and your super awesome friend Sara can kidnap hot guys. You're guaranteed to get the job. :)


Usually when there is a second call you get it. I feel it :P

Dancing Branflake

Ewan Mcgregor and Hugh Jackman???? I have got to see this movie!

Good luck with the second interview!! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you :)


Good luck with your interview! I know what you mean about the drug test thing. I get the same feeling whenever I get stopped at a roadblock or at customs. I feel all fidgety and guilty, even though I've done nothing at all! Am seriously the least likely person ever to a) drink and drive, b) try to sneak some sort of contraband item across the border!

sounds so fun!!

i have to rent that movie now, it sounds intriguing.

and i always love a good book recommend :)


I bet you'll kill the second interview!! Anywhere you'll get a good discount? HA! I had a fab weekend in Syracuse, NY!


Sounds like you had a very decadent weekend. The time spent at the coffee shop sort of made me drool...don't judge please. :)


That's great about a second interview!! I hope you get it!!


I'll be sending you good vibes tomorrow! Good luck.

It's always nerve racking doing any kind of drug or pee test. LOL. Even though you know you haven't done anything.


Poppy seed muffins are what's up with that ;) Congrats! fingers crossed.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi

Best of luck with the second interview!!

Congrats on interview! Here's hopping you get it! I am going to have to look up the book, I love it when you cant wait to get to the end

That's awesome that you got the 2nd interview! Background check & drug tests makes me nervous even though I know I haven't done drugs. I think it's natural to feel that way sometimes. :)


yay for the second interview! definitely promising! :)


eek! congrats on the second interview and GOOD LUCK!!!


I had to take a drug test for the job I have now and I was nervous, too! Haha, so weird.

Good luck on the interview tomorrow! I really hope you get the job.


I'm so happy to hear about the interview! Good luck.


good luck! :) i kinda actually like low-key weekends.. :)


Hooray for job interviews! Good luck with the second one.

I have always been nervous about taking drug tests, and I have no reason to be. Just be sure to avoid anything with poppy seeds. xD

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed this afternoon for you!


I used to work at Target in Hudson, and I got hired on in November 2004 as a seasonal position and hired on full time in January... I was so thankful to be hired full time!!! But anyways, I had to go to Hudson Hosp for drug test, and background test too... you'll be fine! Praying for good interview today!!!


everything you write makes me smile :)

Hope you get offered a good job!

i used to work retail and got sooo pissed off if i had to be on call.

LOVE that cute little pic, i love funny sayings like that!

How was your Tuesday ?
