Just Another Day Around The Way...

Today its snowing like crazy in chi-town. I woke up to the sound of snowblowers and fierce winds that shook my windows. I looked outside and the snow took my breath away. It really is beautiful, covering everything in sight with a blanket of white. That is, until I had to unbury my car to go to work. And since I'm..oh...lets just say borderline midget, by the time, I was done wiping it all down, I somehow got all the snow which accumulated on my ride...all over me. Needless to say, when I got to work all waterlogged, I drank a lot of tea to warm up.

Since its been so cold lately, this past weekend was a movie weekend. Me & my baby stayed in on Saturday and watched blockbuster movies all night (more specifically "the life of David gale" and "bend it like beckham"). And on Sunday, I took my cousins out for their birthday to see "The butterfly Effect" (their birthday falls within a week from each other). Bend it like Beckham was good, But both the Butterfly Effect & The life of David Gale KICKED ASS. I mean if you haven't seen them yet, what the hell are you waitin' for?!!! Make it a blockbutser night and or/ go see a matinee. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I was surprised that the Butterfly effect was so good, especially since at first I didn't feel comfortable seeing Ashton doing anything else but satirical comedy. But he was actually pretty good in this movie. Even though I have to admit that in a few scenes I did have to giggle. It kinda reminded of me of a modern yet twisted "its a wonderful life". But instead of him not wanting to live anymore and finding out how fucked up his loved ones lives would be without him, the character tries to change the past and discovers the same thing. Everyone would be fucked up. It had everything from action, suspense, love, and a lil kiddie porn. hee hee...JUST WATCH THE MOVIE DAMN IT.

As for the Life of David Gale, it has so many twists and turns that I didn't even want to get up to piss save I lose an important clue on what was really happening. Seriously, Kevin Spacey is a great actor. I love the fact that he chooses such "bizarre" roles in movies that actually make you think. So few movies nowadays have a plot, and its nice to watch something that you can actually have a conversation about later.

Yesterday was my interview for a part time position. It was glorified telemarketing, in an inbound call center environment. People would call in because they saw a job in the paper & I would interview them. If their skills matched what the job called for, I would schedule them for a face to face. In the ad, they said they paid anywhere from 8-10 an hour. SO I said, fuck it let me give it a shot. I don't have anything to do after my full time job anyways & I sure could really use the money. BUT...they had the audacity to lie about the starting wage. Turns out, during training, they would start me at $6 an hour, and when I was fully trained (its a 3 step process), I would negotiate my pay. This could take anywhere from 2 weeks to months depending on how THEY feel I perform. What type of shit is that? What even sadder was that it was a group interview, so there was like 30 of us there. You should have seen our faces when they told us its ony $6 an hour. What a joke and a waste of my time. Oh well. That's my life.
