Yes, another dream entry as they are typically (and sadly) the most intersting part of my daily life right now.
First dream was that Amelia from the new Trigun movie, whiteadelphi
, and Ginko were all hanging out at my house with me. We were talking about the different counties we were from and coloring. Because coloring in coloring books is what you do when you get a bunch of different people in the same room together. Duh. whiteadelphi was talking about the floods in Australia, Amelia was saying how she WISHED an area of Gunsmoke COULD flood, and then Ginko... I dunno, turned into a girl for some reason. Maybe he was suppose to be circles9
now and I wanted an all girl party. I don't even know. He was just suddenly a girl, we never did say his name again, and he was talking about how he was only in America until his stay of excusion ran out. Then he had to go back to his country and have his (her?) head chopped off. ( Silly dream, I want tacos now )
In other non-dream news. We're finally getting that blizzard that's been blowing through the east coast. After two days of -20F (-30C) cold I was kinda looking forward to the warmer weather. Only... it's like it's only getting warm for the blizzard so it's not too cold to snow. Then the temepture is suppose to drop a couple days after that. Joy. Broke the record low yesterday at -22F the low use to be -20. It can get much colder than that, but it's fun to break day to day records - now if only it was for the highs. ( Job search rant )
Speaking of being unemployed I have another meeting with my unemployment caseworker. I get to go in there and hand them my list of places I've applied to and tell them what I've done to find work. It's not so bad if I actually see Lisa. I like Lisa - she's kind and understanding. Not sure why, but last time I went in I got this asshole that didn't even give me his name. He just looked at me like I was a waste of his time and asked if I knew how to use search engines.
Yes. I do. Yes. I know how to put different words in to find different things to find work. He even asked me what kind of terms I use to find jobs. I felt pretty awesome when I was able to list off about the ten different searches I use to try to bring up different jobs on the four different sites I use. I also was happy to shove in his face that I knew actually six job search sites. (I only use four because the others don't have the type I'm looking for - but not that, that jackass needed to know that.)
So even though I could rattle all that off without thinking about it, he still felt the need to treat me like and idiot and explain how if I make my search too speific that I wasn't going to find anything. No shit Shirlock. I already told YOU that. He also then took me to one of the job sites and went through the new job lisitings which I got to point to my LIST OF JOBS I HAD JUST APPLIED FOR and show that yes - I honestly had already appiled for these things.
Until he saw I was skipping jobs that were strictly using photoshop.
Asshole: Why didn't you apply for this job?
Me: It's a photoshop job. It's not the type of postproduction I'm qualified for.
AH: It's in the communication feild.
Me: Yes, but it's for still photogrophy. I'm not very good at that.
AH: You should apply anyway.
Me: They want someone SKILLED in photoshop. I hardly know how to crop in it.
AH: But it's a communication job.
Me: Not in the same feild!
AH: But look, pay starts out at 15,000 a year.
Me: (But not if I get fired on day two for not knowing the program.) It's really not the same thing, sir. I have my degree in Digital TV/Film. Film is very different from still images and the programs we use are very different.
AH: It's the same thing.
Me: No it's not...
AH: You're still going to apply for it when you get home. It's a good paying job.
Me: (*JUMPS ACROSS TABLE TO STRANGLE*) Yes sir. (Not.)
I WISH I was exzagerating how this conversation went, but I'm not. He kept looking at me like I was some twat who didn't know that Photoshop and Final Cut Pro are totally the same thing. I seriously wanted to punch him in the face. Also - for when I listed things off to him, I didn't do it in any snarky way. If I did it was totally unintentional. He asked me what I used and I listed it. I think he hated me just because I was SHOCK actually activily looking for work.
So here's hoping I don't get that moron again and Lisa was just sick or something.
