Trees, Cliches and Chipotle, Oh My!

I did some checking around and have been informed that the tree outside my office window that I was blathering on about in my last entry is a Bradford Pear. Fascinating, eh? Whatever. I needed closure.

I went to the interview. I totally screwed it up and will not be getting that job. Oops! So much for all my confidence. The interview was nothing like I expected. It was more like an oral exam than an interview. They had 10 questions/scenarios that they asked. It was all "Your the judge. X happens. What do you do?" It was very bizarre and I was completely unprepared for that. I totally blew it. The only way I could have done worse is if I'd had some sort on Janet Jackson-esque wardrobe malfunction. I'm disappointed by my failure, but like I said going in - it is what it is. I can't dwell on it. Live and learn. There will be other interviews... I hope.

Have you noticed how people start statements with "At the end of the day..." and then go on to (in theory) make some kind of point? Well, I'm tired of that. Feel free to remove that tired cliche from your vocabulary. Because, at the end of the day, you just sound like a moronic windbag who's asking for a kick in the nuts.

Another thing I'm tired of? Chipotle. Every restaurant chain in America has some chipotle flavored dish and they all feel the need to make commercials about it. Enough already. I've never tried anything chipotle flavored. It might be good. Who knows? But I'm so tired of being beat over the head with it that I have no desire to ever give it a try.

I'm starting to get asked about what I want for Christmas. In the past, I've done a list and put it on my site. That won't work as well with this journal format that I've switched to. So I was sitting here tinkering with my Amazon.com wishlist and thinking about how to do the Christmas list this year and I suddenly came up with a brilliant idea. I thought "Wouldn't it be great if there was a website where you could make a wishlist by adding items from anywhere on the internet instead of having dozens of wishlists scattered all over the place?". Then I became giddy because I just KNEW I had come up with a brilliant idea that would make me the next great internet billionaire. I would call it wishlist.com and quit my job and spend my days rolling around in my enormous piles of money. I thought to myself, "Audrey, you're a genius!" Then I went and googled "wishlist" and it turns out that there are dozens of websites that already offer this service, including one called wishlist.com. Crap! My hopes and dreams shattered once again. Anyway, to get to the point, I think I'll be doing a wishlist on one of these sites instead of my usual list. It won't have the heart and humor of my normal list, but it will make shopping for me a breeze and eliminate a little shopping related stress for you this holiday season. More details coming soon.

So that's it. I don't have much to say today, but I will leave you with this random and slightly hilarious bonus photo of my cat, Gus. Enjoy!
