UND

You gotta love a university that has a "Females for Firearms" club on campus! I told Silver to join up as soon as she can.

In other news, Silver did not get the library aide position she interviewed for. The letter said they're keeping her on the list for future openings, which really doesn't help her very much right now. She was understandably upset and feeling rejected, but I pointed out that it's certainly possible that they were looking for people to work during the day, while she is in school. So it doesn't mean they weren't impressed by her, or that they thought she sucked (her fear).

Well, the whole process was definitely a valuable learning experience for her, and I'm glad she applied for the job. Next up, she's going to apply for a position at a local GameStop. If there's anything about video games she doesn't know, I can't imagine what it might be.

Crossing my fingers for Silver! Hope she finds something she enjoys and learns a lot in the process!

Thanks so much!
She refuses to work where food is made/served, because she says she'd be hungry ALL THE TIME. I believe her, the kid's an eating machine.

Yup. Guns are the great equalizer. It's always amazing to me that more women don't agitate for the right to carry. You can bet your ass that more than a few rapists and robbers would think twice about jumping an otherwise easy-looking female mark if they knew that she might be capable of blowing their faces off.

I know Silver will get THIS job!

On the blog post that's about Al Gore...

I say it's global COOLING! Because it just snowed (about a month ago maybe)in Louisiana...THREE INCHES!!!

I agree with Jim (Suldog)!

On rejection: I'm of the opinion you learn a LOT from unsuccessful attempts... be it job interviews, love affairs, yadda, yadda. Failure, and learning from it/ dealing with it, is a very important part of life!

Silver will do well. Breeding tells. ;-)

Suldog, you're definitely preaching to the choir here...;)

Tally, I hope she gets it! I agree the weather has been acting crazy, but I think it's the height of hubris for us blink-of-an-eye humans to think we have all the answers. Heck, we can't even get an accurate weather forecast for a week in advance!

Buck, I agree. It's very important to learn from mistakes, otherwise you make 'em over and over and over....

And thank you for the compliment!
