I’ve never won blogging awards before :-)

How awesome is this?! Emily over at Family and Life in Las Vegas has awarded me with some awards šŸ™‚

How vonderbar!You are to tell 7 things about yourself, but much like Emily, I hate odd numbers (ocd thing possibly?) So you get 6.

1. I love my dogs. If something happened to them, I may not make it through.
2. I am currently studying for my A+ computer certification. I try and make it through at least 3 chapters a day on the book I am using. I wanted to take it before I started school back up, but they didn't have any openings the Friday before. So I am taking it the week school starts on a Tuesday.
3. I discovered yesterday as I was conditioning my hair, that I am officially out of the TWA (teenie weenie afro) stage and into the medium afro stage. YAY ME!
4. COMPLETE. PRODUCT. JUNKIE.
5. I love clothes, makeup, and fashion...but I love a bargain even more.
6. I have lost 14 lbs in the past couple of weeks. I AM WELL ON MY WAY!! YAY!!!

Now, I must pass these awards to a couple of other people:

1. Black Girl with Long Hair - I enjoy her informative interviews with people as well as her thought provoking "what do you think?" articles

2. Fab Finds Under $50 - She is an Indiana girl like me, she has impeccible taste in fashion, and she loves a bargain as well

3. Beauty and the Bitch - They are just good clean snarky fun!

4. Mommy Loves Stilettos - She is honest, in your face, and unapologetic about it. I like her.. a lot.

Worst job interview… IN THE WORLD

Before I get on with my sad tale of woe is meĀ embarrassmentĀ of a job interview. I must tell you that this is all my fault. I applied for a position that is way over my level. This is what happens when you do that sometimes.

For those of you that do not know me well, I am in technology. Well, I would be in technology if I was not unemployed. I've filled out countless applications, sent in tons of resumes and the results? A few interviews here and there, talking to my dogs a lot, scrapbooking and blogging.Ā 
I sent in my resume for a job I found on careerbuilder.com. It was above my level of expertise, but I always do that, thinking that the hiring manager will see my resume and think I am not qualified for the job, but they have something that may work for me. It has happened before.
Well, they called, wanting me to interview for this job. I was shocked, I was happy and I was nervous. It was a phone interview today. I WAS ON IT.
This woman asked me questions of technical things I had never even heard of. SAN? What the hell is a SAN? I know of LAN, WAN, and even MAN. But never SAN! Ā (FYI- LAN= Local Area Network, WAN= Wide Area Network, MAN= Metropolitan Area Netowrk, and SAN= Storage Area Network (I had to ask my husband who is more of an IT guru than I will ever be)
After a few more questions like that. I was just deflated. That interview took some stuff out of me. So I took a nap. Because that just sucked ass.
Now, I need a hug...and possibly some cake. But I will settle for a hug.
