On Here is Your Open Thread

I had a phone interview on Tuesday for a job I'm not entirely qualified for, but is with a company I worked for before. Interview went well, the recruiter contacted an old supervisor who very likely said nice things about me, and the next step is for the recruiter to give my resume to this manager, who will decide whether or not to go go further in the interview process with me. I hate waiting. Eeeeeeeergh.

On Our 1 Thing: Remembering to Do 1 Thing, Oops

My one thing is, in keeping with several pieces on the Billfold this week, is to get to bed on time. I had to work over the weekend, making tomorrow day seven of being on the job and hate hate hating life. Sleep for me! Also, for any of you keeping track, we did get paid a small sum towards the vet bills from the guy whose dog attacked mine, and got a commitment for the rest. Tomorrow will tell how firm that commitment was.

On Tipping Housekeeping is Controversial? (No It Isn't)

When I first moved to Oregon, a friend (not from Oregon) convinced me that I was supposed to tip gas station attendants (no pumping your own gas in OR). Turns out, while a nice thing to do, it was not mandatory.

On WWYD: Porn Star BF Asks Porn Star GF to Quit Work Because Love

"Once again, we all do this, we are all in this together, clueless and in pain, like back up dancers in low-budget music videos." Suddenly, my life makes sense.

On Thirtysomethings Just As Delusional as Twentysomethings

I feel like I spent my twenties just messing around, trying to pay off an epic medical bill and then figure ou what to do with the rest of my life. Still don't know, so I guess it's "settling for whatever I can get" time.

On We're Not Gonna Pay Rent ... By Check

@cryptolect yes! Our slumlord wanted us to do an automatic debit thing, and we said hell no. Subsequent dealing with slumlord has made us feel really good about standing our ground on that one.

Work on the lawnmower. And for those of you keeping score at home, still no money of any sort from the dude whose dog attacked mine.
