On Fall Fashion

@garli I am with you! Everyone looks better in layers. I hate summer clothes. Women's summer clothes are always in ugly pastels which I hate and I can't deal with flip flops being worn everywhere. FEET - put them away. Scarves, cardigans, jackets all the way. Man, do I love a good jacket.

On I Got a Great Clip at Great Clips

@HelloTheFuture Aw man OK. I guess the receptionist's stink eye wasn't just my imagination after all.

On I Got a Great Clip at Great Clips

Timely! I just got a haircut from my regular dude and he totally botched it. My bangs look like Jim Carrey's in Dumb & Dumber and the rest looks like a blind person's interpretation of The Rachel. It's bad. I think I need to find a new person but he was considered "cheap" at $45 before tip. He also never pushes products on me which I like (my previous dude did it all of the time and I caved once and bought $40 worth of products that I never ended up using). Also, do you guys tip the hair washer? I never know if I should and I usually don't unless I have some random singles in my wallet.

On Gets, Regrets, and Good Decisions: Jobs I’ve Said No To

@Tripleoxer I've never gone beyond 2 interviews. Four seems so unnecessary; they should know by now if they want you or not! Good luck w/the interview and your final decision!

On Gets, Regrets, and Good Decisions: Jobs I’ve Said No To

Oooh I forgot about one where I had a warning by HR over the phone about the hiring manager being "difficult" and hard to work with. Then during the in-person interview, a colleague of the hiring manager's spent her entire interview time saying how the hiring manager had a reputation in the company (of 200+ ppl) and that I'd have to have thick skin to deal with her. The hiring manager didn't seem that bad when I talked with her one-on-one but everyone puts on a good face during interviews. I got an offer 2 days later but declined even though they kept alluding to more $ than I initially asked for. I do not regret this one!

On Gets, Regrets, and Good Decisions: Jobs I’ve Said No To

I said no to a job at Dana Farber even though the team & manager I interviewed with were awesome and the interview felt more like conversations with old friends. At the time I was freshly laid off and I didn't want to stay in the print production field but now that I look back on it, I kind of regret it and view it as The One That Got Away due to the people I could've been working with. Also, cut to two years later and guess what field I'm STILL in? Urgh.

On Today in Things to Spend Your Money On: Breathing Room

This would be PERFECT to do secret phone interviews during the day. Places I've done phone interviews: Macy's lobby; Macy's glove dept (VERY noisy for some reason); behind current employer's bldg outside, in January; random office bldg lobby vestibule w/glares from security; outside of a start-up's elevator banks/men's restroom entrance.

On "You Are My Person": Work Wives Cristina and Meredith Say Farewell

I'm about to start a new job where the entire department is like a retirement community in Florida (I'm 35 but I act & look younger). So I dunno, I think these ladies will be nice to work with but I don't foresee any close bonds or friendships forming. I love the people I work with now but it's just a temp job and I'm leaving it for full time pastures.
