Job Hunting Reject: "Thanks, but no thanks"

Suffice to say I am in one pissy mood. Our cat Chloe continues to defecate partly in the litter box and then finish in the kitchen or the rug. We took her to the vet, all is well, she is just rushing and not finishing apparently. We were told to try new letter so we shall. If not, there is a Chinese Restaurant down the street I will send her to. To add to all things poopy, I just got ANOTHER job application rejection. Actually, here is what they wrote.
"Thank you for your interest in potential employment opportunities within Atlantic Health.  We have received your application for the Administrative Assistant .  After careful review, the department has decided to interview other candidates whose qualifications and experience are more consistent with their needs."

So apparently, my 5+ years of admin experience is worth crapola. Co-owning an unprofitable jewelry business does not pay off either nor does being an oncology massage therapist. I am sure people who dislike me heavily out there are pleased to see my stagnation and frustration. If I was them, I would enjoy it too. Kind of like the small joy you get out of seeing an ex-friend put on a good 50 pounds. It is petty and pointless, but dammit, it makes you feel good for 3 seconds. I do not deny that I am petty, we all are, that is what makes us human and small.
I know in the grand scheme of things there are 2,000 of us applying to the same crappy job in one day, but that does not make this easier. I have a house I want to buy with the mister and go on to further education. This latest denial will not stop me, but it does make for a bigger speed bump.
I am now off to drown my sorrows with a classic film "The Palm Beach Story" and some lunch while hanging with the couch Nazi, Isadora.

Here is one link of joy for now, the fabulous Fortnum and Mason now have a USA website. Whee!

Peace, love and anti-depressants,
PS I am having issues with the fonts in Blogger so I apologize


  1. Hi Fi,

    Deni's growth was benign. Found out today.

    Sorry to take the food out of your mouth tho. :p

    If Chloe is in a rush maybe there is a territorial thing going on with the litter box. Or she feels vulnerable when she goes.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves


And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
